Property code: ASHER

Beautifully finished oak-framed detached property sleeping four, enjoying a secluded rural location in the Somerset countryside, located within five miles of the towns of Street and Glastonbury.

This property is situated on the edge of the village of Compton Dundon, in the heart of the Somerset countryside, and yet is less than five miles away from two very different towns, both of which make interesting places for day visits. The town of Street is home to the Clarks shopping village, and is a mecca for bargain-hunting shoppers who will love browsing the factory outlet stores. Meanwhile, the historic town of Glastonbury has a range of quirky shops, independent eateries, and is home to the peaceful Chalice Well Gardens, and the atmospheric ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, said to be the final resting place of King Arthur. This property is perfectly located for bird watching on the Somerset levels with the starling murmurations and directly from the property you can walk up Lollover Hill which is a Site of Specific Scientific Interest (SSSI) for ornithology.

As soon as guests arrive at this property, they will immediately be able to see just how much thought has been out into creating a very special place to stay. The oak frame which supports the building has very much been made a feature of the property, with exposed beams and huge windows giving the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner an imposing feeling of grandeur. The lounge area has a range of comfortable seating which has been arranged so as to make the most of the views across the large gardens, and also relax with a good film on the TV/DVD. At the other end of this spacious room, the bespoke kitchen is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, and washing machine. Towards the rear of this space, close to the kitchen area, there is a set of twin beds which provide an extra sleeping space, making this property suitable for up to four guests. The bright bathroom, with a shower-over-bath and WC is also located on the ground floor, whilst the double bedroom is situated on a mezzanine level which is accessed via open-tread wooden stairs. There are skylight windows here which make it possible to lie in bed and look at the stars, but guests should be aware that the room does have a certain degree of reduced head-height. Outside, there is a spacious lawned garden for guests to enjoy, within which the owners have provided garden furniture and a BBQ, making it easy to enjoy alfresco meals in this peaceful location. Guests are welcome also to explore the owners land and woodland and meet the animals on site. There is ample off-road parking available.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 1 double bedroom, plus twin beds in the ground floor living space
  • Bathroom with shower-over-bath, and WC
  • TV/DVD
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Kitchen: oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine

Our second stay here, as we had enjoyed it so much the first time. Light, airy barn conversion, perfect for a relaxing 'get away from it all' break. Very quiet as, along with the owners' farm, it's the last dwelling on a no-through road. Always warm with underfloor heating throughout, for cosy off-season stays. Safe, enclosed garden for the dogs toRead more romp around in. The owners, James and Emily, could not be more welcoming. Hide

Overall a lovely property but the location next to the owners house was not really as shown on the website - we go away to get away and we wouldn't book a property that close to another. The equipment in the kitchen was very basic and at times we would have liked to be able to change the temperature of the barn. Other than the close proximity to thRead moree farmhouse which was a bit annoying, the other stuff was minor and we still had a great time. Hide

A lovely and spacious barn with everything thought of. A lot of care has obviously been put into making this property cosy and welcoming. It was great to spend the evenings playing games and seeing the starlings fly in the morning. The dogs loved their stay and it was a perfect location to explore local towns. Thank you.
