Picture 1 of 26. Purtington Barn Cottage is part of a lovely barn conversion (the middle section).
Tranquil Purtington Barn Cottage is close to the Somerset, Dorset and east Devon borders – a perfect central base for enjoying the South West – within easy reach of Exeter, the Jurassic Coast, and further afield the north Devon coast, Dartmoor and Exmoor. Stop off en route as you will pass Stonehenge and Stourhead. The cottage, adjoining the Owner’s home, is presented to a very high standard and feels completely private. The living area has French windows (low lintels, be careful) onto the patio. The spacious bedrooms overlook the grounds and farmland. Enjoy the stream-side seat at the bottom of the garden (there is a drop from the garden) and watch the wildlife in the conservation meadow. Guests can make a prior arrangement with the Owner to bring their horses as there is a network of local bridleways and a locally run cross country course to hire. There is also a special offer to use the nearby Cricket St Thomas Estate Spa and pool. There is a private water supply, regularly tested. Please note that the changeover times are 4pm on arrival and 10am on departure.
