The property

Nestled within the stunning greenery of the Polden Hills, lies this hidden gem.

Renovated with stylish and contemporary interiors throughout whilst retaining its traditional charm through features such as the exposed stonework and original beams, Willow Barn is sure to add a touch of luxury to any self-catering stay.

Step inside this fabulous abode and be welcomed into a gorgeous kitchen with impressive quartz worktops and a sea of sleek electrical appliances such as a built-in microwave, oven and hob, together creating the perfect space to show off your culinary skills as you prepare a loving meal for all of your guests.

Take your seat at the dining table and be sure to crack open a bottle of bubbly, raising a glass to precious time with loved ones before tucking into your fantastic feast.

Cross the heated floors over to the sitting room, where you can place a log on the woodburning stove before settling down on the plush corner sofa and losing yourself in an entertaining movie on the flat-screen TV.

When the sun is shining and the weather is warm, open up the bifold doors in the sitting room and delight in an afternoon soaking up the sunshine out on the patio.

or indulge in a picnic on the well-manicured lawn.

Back inside, guests can admire the striking mezzanine walk-way as they wander through the first floor and discover a bright and sophisticated family shower room, hosting a spacious walk-in shower.

Also on the first floor are two homely bedrooms consisting of a king-size and a double, each complete with fresh linens and a warm ambiance, an ideal space to lay your head to rest at the end of the day.

Experience the very best of this beautiful part of the country with days spent hiking through Loxley Wood where you can spot ancient trees and colourful flowers, or on a scenic stroll through the RSPB Ham Wall, both right on your doorstep.

Venture into the heart of Glastonbury to see iconic landmarks such as the Glastonbury Tor and Market Cross, or take tours of the popular Somerset Rural Life Museum and Glastonbury Tribunal.

Over in Bridgwater, the Saltlands Community Woodland and Bridgwater Bay National Nature Reserve makes for an excellent afternoon in the great outdoors, whilst Burnham-on-Sea is home to soft sandy beaches and superb landscaped gardens.

Whether you’re travelling with children or not, Apex Leisure & Wildlife Park and Tropiquaria Wildlife Park are well-worth a visit, and Funland Theme Park can be found just a short drive away in the bustling resort of Weston-Super-Mare.

Embark on an unforgettable adventure in the Quantock Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty filled with mesmerising landmarks and unrivalled views of the coast and country, or hop in the car and head for Yeovil where you can grab dinner and drinks in one of the many well-established restaurants that line the area, before returning to the neighboring village of Ashcott for a quick pint with the locals.

With all this to do and more, Willow Barn is the ultimate choice for your next escape to Somerset.

About the location


Glastonbury 6 miles; Street 4 miles.

The pretty, little Somerset village of Shapwick can be found on the Somerset Levels, an Area of Special Scientific Interest, a low-lying marshy area which stretches from the Mendip Hills as far as Taunton, crossed by numerous drainage channels called rhynes, where willows are grown for basket making, and a bird-watchers paradise. The village became famous in 1998 for the discovery of the largest hoard of Roman silver ever found in the United Kingdom. Shapwick provides a great touring base, as the town of Street, famous for the Clarks Shopping Village, and the historic town of Glastonbury, well known for its Abbey, Tor, and Festival, are both only a short drive. Just a little further afield can be found Wells Cathedral as well as the beaches at Burnham-on-Sea and Weston Super Mare, with Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge both easily accessible. This really is an ideal location for an interesting holiday at any time of the year.
