Five-star barn conversion property sleeping up to twelve guests, situated in a stunning secluded area of Somerset, set within 60 acres of beautiful grounds.

This property is situated in one of the most beautiful areas of Somerset, right on the edge of Exmoor National Park, and within a designated Dark Sky Reserve, which offers guests wonderful opportunities for star gazing as the nights draw in. The secluded location offers guests the chance to truly enjoy the rural location, with miles of fantastic walks available directly from the property’s front door. For those looking for a little more hustle and bustle, the seaside towns of Minehead and Ilfracombe are each around an hour’s drive away, and offer a range of shops, restaurants, and attractions, alongside their beaches. Other places of interest in the area include the pretty village of Porlock, the harbour town of Watchet, and the medieaval village of Dunster with its fascinating castle. As guests approach this detached barn conversion property, they will immediately get a sense of just how secluded and private a location it enjoys, set as it is, within its own 60 acre valley. On entering the impressive property, they come first to the welcoming entrance hall which offers plenty of space to leave coats and boots before continuing to the main living accommodation. The spacious lounge is a wonderfully relaxing space with several large sofas, a TV, DVD, and a warming wood burner, for which logs are provided. The kitchen/diner, is so much more than a place to eat and prepare meals, it is a fantastic space for socialising, celebrating, and relaxing, and as well as large dining table, there is also a breakfast bar, and an inviting sofa. The huge bi-fold doors here allow guests to open this space out to the garden, making the garden feel like an extension of the house. The kitchen area itself is well-equipped and offers a Range oven, hob, microwave, two fridges, dishwasher, and wine cooler. The washing machine, tumble dryer, and freezer can be found in the separate utility room nearby, which also has the added bonus of an additional sink. One of the property’s bedrooms can be found on the ground floor: a king-size room which can be made up as a twin room on request. This room benefits from an en-suite bathroom with sower-over-bath and WC, whilst there is also a separate ground-floor cloakroom with WC. Two separate staircases lead to the first floor, where there are four more bedrooms. At one end of the house, guests will find a king-size room which has an en-suite bathroom with shower-over-bath and WC. Nearby there is a twin room, which has two additional pull out beds, great for parties of eleven or twelve guests. This room also benefits from an en-suite, this time a shower room with WC. The second set of stairs on the ground-floor lead to two more bedrooms, both of which are king-size rooms, each with their own en-suite shower and WC. One of the real draws of this property is the amazing outside space. Guests are free to enjoy the full 60 acres of grounds, which includes gardens with patio area, garden furniture, BBQ and a fire pit, as well as woodlands, fields, a stream, and a pond. A wonderful private hot tub, close to the seating area, enjoys fantastic views thanks to its elevated position. There is ample off-road parking available to the front of the property. Please note that the stream is located approximately 50 yards from the patio, and children will need to be supervised.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

This barn is simply lovely, it is spacious and everything is done to a high standard. The location is very remote but this is great if you want to escape the city, see the stars at night and hear the sheep bleeting. Hayley the owner was very helpful and accommodating. Overall I highly recommend it to anyone!

The Lazy Sheep Barn is a really fabulous property! Perfect for both a group of friends - or extended family. The decor is very high end and there were so many luxurious touches - port by the bedside, a bottle of prosecco in the fridge, furry blankets hung off the back of the sofas in case you get chilly sitting out on the decking in the evening.

Very comfortable, great to have en suite in every room. Hot tub super even though the weather was awful. A little out of the way with single track road but no problem when you get used to it. Must be stunning in the summer, with the large patio, outside seating and bbq.
