Close to Wells, with its famous cathedral and shopping area and Burnham-on-Sea with its golden sandy beaches, seaside shops, restaurants and Cheddar, with its famous Gorge to the north. A perfect position to visit an array of places for all ages and tastes.

On entering this converted stone barn, you are met by an open-plan kitchen/diner which overlooks the courtyard and has many character features which include exposed beams and some exposed stone walls. The kitchen area is perfect for lighter meals and has an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, washing machine and dishwasher. This leads to the lounge, with woodburner (first basket of logs included - further can be purchased from the owner), where you can relax with a good book or take time to watch your favourite TV (with firestick) programme. There are two bedrooms one double with a door to the pretty cottage style garden and one twin bedroom. There is also a shower room with shower and WC.

Venturing outside from doors either in the lounge or double bedroom you will find yourself on the private and secluded terrace, a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine or some outside dining with garden furniture. Or relax in the hot tub and enjoy a peaceful evening in the cottage style enclosed garden. To the front of the property and accessed via French doors in the lounge is a private terrace with seating. You are also welcome to use the mature orchard which leads down to a stream, which is a perfect place to enjoy beautiful sunsets in the late summer evenings.
