    The beds were very comfortable and it was so peaceful. The kitchen was very well equipped, and the lounge had plenty of seating. It was warm and cosy, which was great as the weather outside was awful! The hot tub was well used in between the rain storms! Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Fantastic hosts and the attention to detail was great. Very welcoming to small children (books, videos, smart TV for access to Netflix, Amazon Prime etc) and the hot tub was a great addition for us too. Homemade lemon drizzle cake was greatly appreciated and a lovely touch. Thank you

    The most comfortable beds, a real home from home. The hot tub was superb and a lovely way to spend the afternoon after being out all day. Great location for exploring Somerset and Devon as so close to the county border…..highly recommended. The owners were so accommodating when we had car issues on our last day too, thank you.

  • "We had a lovely stay at the Granary, the house was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed."

    The owners were very welcoming and friendly and the hot tub was maintained throughout our stay. The cottage is very remote however and people with electric vehicles will find it difficult to find somewhere nearby to charge. There is charging at Wiveliscombe but this only low voltage.

    Thank you for your positive review of The Granary and that you had a lovely stay. We always were possible respond to requests for additional facilities and have indeed prior to the post of your review installed a metered EV charging point at The Granary available for visitors to use at Kwh cost price. Wiveliscombe 4 miles away has 6 EV charging points with the County town of Somerset, Taunton 14 miles away has multiple fast charge EV stations. The Granary is centrally situated to many wonderful attractions which previous visitors have commented on their reviews. Stuart and Julie Property owners Property Owner

    We had the best time and had such warm weather. The cottage was so beautiful and has great facilities, just like home. Beautiful little villages around the area and central to all coastal areas. We drove all over Somerset and Devon and found some real gems we hadn’t seen before. Well worth a stay here and highly recommend this place.

  • "PERFECT:) The Granary is a wonderful place to stay."

    We visited with Mum, Hubby, Son and girlfriend and dog. Everything you could possibly need is on hand for everyone's needs. Downstairs bedroom was a must for us. Julie and Stuart were there if needed, but were never intrusive. Hot tub was checked daily (even our dog didn't know Stuart had been). I had asked about a blender before leaving home and when we got to the property, there was a brand new one available - wow! Accommodation is cosy, clean and comfortable, plenty of room available for hanging clothes, etc. The kitchen (and equipment) is amazing and so were the scones, jam and cream waiting for our arrival (oh, and don't forget the prosecco). Such a lovely, quiet location with plenty of walks nearby and within relatively easy (lots of winding roads) reach to many wonderful places to visit. Wivvy is a nice town to visit and we loved Bampton (you must visit 'Spelt' - excellent food). Would I recommend The Granary - ABSOLUTELY. Thank you Julie and Stuart

    It has all you need to enjoy your holiday. The owners have thought of everything with lots of additional extras and touches. Thank you for the lovely brownies and fizz on arrival, much appreciated after long journey. The most comfiest beds we have ever had in a holiday cottage.

    Set on the border between Somerset and Devon, it really is an ideal base for exploring the west country. The property has everything you could possibly need to suit everyone, including a 'proper' coffee machine and the full sky package. It has been thoughtfully furnished for comfort and style with the hot tub an added bonus. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, leaving the most delicious brownies we have ever tasted! They even left us a bottle of prosecco and a pint of milk for our arrival. The hot tub was cleaned daily and they were on hand with lots of recommendations for activities and eating. A home from home, but better!

Relaxing in the hot tub was such a nice treat afterwards.

The property

Wiveliscombe 5.2 miles.

This picturesque, detached barn is situated in an idyllic rural location in Bathealton, close to Wiveliscombe in Somerset, on the edge of the Exmoor National Park.

Comfortably furnished, this inviting base is an excellent choice for families and friends looking to reside in the natural beauty of South West England, with easy access to Dartmoor, Exmoor and the North Somerset coastline.

Step into the entrance hall, where you can remove and store you coats and boots, before moving into the sitting room, which offers two sofas, an alluring woodburning stove set within a feature brick place and a flatscreen TV for entertainment.

Allow the chef amongst the group to whip up a tasty feast from the fitted kitchen, equipped with a useful set of appliances including a Range cooker and dishwasher, while the dining table offers the ideal spot to gather for special mealtimes together.

Completing the ground floor of The Granary is a spacious king-size double bedroom which can be arranged as a twin on request and caters to a variety of guests.

After a long day exploring the beautiful landscapes of the Exmoor National Park, look forward to unwinding in your own private hot tub, accompanied with a gin and tonic whilst you contemplate where to visit next.

The historic market town of Wiveliscombe is only five miles away and is well stocked with independent shops, cafes and pubs serving local produce, while Taunton, roughly 15 miles away, is a delightful town to visit with a plethora of historic buildings to admire and some excellent independent shops to browse.

After you’ve completed the magnificent walks of Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks, plan a visit to the beach resorts on the North Somerset Coast, including Blue Anchor Bay which is less than an hour's drive from The Granary.

About the location


Taunton 11 miles.

Known affectionately as Wivey, this historic market town is set in wonderful surroundings on the edge of Exmoor, in the Brendon Hills. This is a perfect centre from which to set out on outdoor pursuits; from fishing for trout on the peaceful waters of Clatworthy Reservoir or Wimbleball Lake, horse-riding at a number of stables in the area or simply taking a long walk through the idyllic countryside on well-signed paths. There are several excellent independent shops in Wiveliscombe including an award-winning butcher, antique shops, a gunsmith and the well known Court House, a striking three-storey independent shop that attracts visitors from far afield. The village is half an hour's drive from North Somerset's beaches, such as Blue Anchor Bay and, as the gateway to the Brendon Hills and Exmoor, an ideal base for walking and other pursuits in one of Britain's loveliest National Parks. The picturesque Exmoor towns of Dulverton and Bampton are within driving distance. A perfect holiday destination - peace coupled with good facilities and leisure pursuits.
