    “Excellent in every respect.”

    Our hosts added lots of little touches to enhance our holiday experience. Old refurbished farm building. Modernised well but retaining its old world charm. Equipped with all utilities and appliances required for a stress free stay. Certainly one of the best holiday rentals we have undertaken to date.

The property

A charming and characterful attached former farmhouse, quietly situated in the heart of the attractive south Somerset village of Winsham on the borders of Dorset and Devon.

The cottage is a wing of the owner's barn conversion, believed to date back to 1750, and has been lovingly renovated to create a most comfortable holiday home.

Inside the spacious sitting room, you'll be impressed by the original beams and gorgeous inglenook fireplace, a sumptuous place to relax and toast your toes in front of the cosy woodburning stove.

The pretty farmhouse kitchen, with its warming AGA, will inspire you to conjure up some tasty treats for your group.

Upstairs there are four double bedrooms to choose from, the master bedroom benefiting from en-suite facilities, whilst the other bedrooms share the use of a really lovely bathroom complete with a roll-top bath as well as a shower.

There is a further shower on the ground floor ensuring none of your party will have to wait long to use the washing facilities!

For those who wish to relax away from the rest, there's a cosy snug complete with TV and a good selection of books.

Outside, on warmer days, make use of the small private garden with a patio, lawned area and a pretty fenced pond.

The local Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides many great walking opportunities, whilst for garden lovers there are a wealth of gems including Forde Abbey and East Lambrook.

Further afield enjoy the attractions of the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton, Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary, or how about a day trip to the beautiful cities of Bath or Wells?

The stunning Jurassic Coast with the resorts of West Bay and Lyme Regis, are also easily accessible.

This super farmhouse really does offer visitors a warm and comfortable home-from-home holiday experience, in a most beautiful part of the West Country.

About the location

WINSHAM

Chard 3 miles; Bridport 12 miles.

An attractive rural South Somerset village, close to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, overlooking the Axe Valley, on the borders of Dorset and Devon. Winsham offers visitors a friendly, lively village base, with lots going on locally, together with a thriving village shop and pub, which serves a good selection of real ales. Being situated on the Liberty Trail and the Wessex Ridgeway, there are plenty of walking opportunities affording wonderful views straight from the door, and those who love exploring beautiful gardens and country houses are spoilt for choice with Forde Abbey, East Lambrook, Barrington Court as well as Montacute House, used as a setting for TV's Wolf Hall, all a short drive. There's easy access to the whole of the Jurassic Coast, from the wonderful old Victorian seaside town of Sidmouth in the west, Lyme Regis, and West Bay right round to Abbotsbury, with its famous swannery and subtropical gardens to the east. Winsham provides a perfect village touring base for enjoying both the coast and the countryside in one of the West Country's most unspoilt rural areas.
