  • "The property is beautiful and has amazing views."

    Nicely decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen has all necessary supplies for cooking with even two (!) dishwashers to make the cleanup easy. Even a froth maker on hand for delicious coffees. Everything brand new. We couldn’t have asked for more. We were 2 families with kids and had a fantastic time at Worthy Barn and it’s stunning surroundings. I would highly recommend!

This holiday home sleeps eight adults making it a perfect getaway for generations of families or groups of friends.

A well-behaved dog is welcome and the fantastic gardens with direct beach access make it a perfect holiday retreat for all.

On arrival, guests can park their cars on the private drive next to their holiday home.

Entrance into a useful hall, perfect for coats and wet gear it then leads into the handy utility area with washing machine and fridge/freezer, and into a stunning kitchen, complete with all the necessary amenities and appliances for a week away.

The vast glazed doors invite in the panoramic sea view providing a perfect place to dine with a backdrop you will never forget.

At the opposite end of the hall are two beautifully presented bedrooms, one king-size and a a twin room, serviced by two shower rooms, so there is plenty of space to freshen up.

Upstairs, you will find a further breathtaking view from the sitting room where you can put your feet up in front of the woodburning stove and enjoy a good movie night with family and friends, or throw open the French doors and sit out on the roof terrace and watch the evening light over Porlock Bay.

Along the corridor you will discover two further splendid bedrooms including one with a full size bunk bed, great for kids and suitable for adults, and a further bedroom with king-size double and an en-suite shower room for extra privacy.

Finishing off the first floor is an inviting bathroom where you can soak at the end of a long day.

Worthy Barn is a stone's throw from Porlock Beach, a 6 mile stretch of shingle, part of the South West Coast Path.

There is also a plethora of beaches to explore – from sandy Minehead and Dunster to Lee Bay rock pools and sand at low tide, Combe Martin and of course the fossil-rich headland and bay at Blue Anchor and Watchet – but do be aware of the tide!

For those that love to be at one with nature, the Exmoor National Park is laced with winding cliff paths, footpaths and bridleways encompassing open heather-clad moorland.

Walk the rugged South West Coast Path, Coleridge Way or try some of the world-class mountain biking trails for every skill level or Pony trekking at Horner.

For a slower pace, enjoy a picnic at Tarr Steps, with its ancient clapper bridge or spend a day meandering through Medieval Dunster visiting the Castle.

A short drive away, you will find the pretty harbour town of Minehead, with its picturesque beach and charming array of independent shops, or for an afternoon of culture, venture to Lynton and Lynmouth, two beautiful villages set on the dramatic North Devon Coast.

Here, you can also discover all that the magnificent Exmoor National Park has to offer, including a spellbinding display of rolling hills, romantic moorland, and ancient woodlands sure to impress guests of all ages.

Worthy Barn is a special retreat in a truly stunning location.
