Set on a 200 acre working farm with its own fishing lake, this stylish and welcoming detached converted stable provides a relaxing base for guests exploring this most beautiful part of Somerset.
The cottage is located close to the charming town of Wincanton. You can take a short drive to Wincanton Racecourse and enjoy the steeplechasing, have a little flutter or enjoy a drink. The cathedral city of Wells is a short drive as is the Spa town of Bath. Attractions include Stourhead House and Gardens, whose immaculate grounds offer numerous interesting features including temples, lakes, trees, a folly and shop. You could explore Cadbury Castle, mythical burial place of King Arthur and his knights, with its 18 acre Iron Age encampment. There are many pretty towns and villages to enjoy, such as Bruton, a small town on the River Brue, or Castle Cary with its choice of small shops and museum.

The owners are happy to welcome guests to visit the cows and sheep on the farm by arrangement. Guests may also head to the lake and have a go at fishing (which is suited more to children/beginners as opposed to the keen angler – please bring your own equipment).
