This lovely detached single-storey cottage is in a private location with level gardens and a sheltered patio.
Another view of the open plan layout, the high ceilings and French windows mean that there is plenty of light.
There are gardens on two sides of Ashey Barn, with a patio area for eating outside if you wish. This is a very private setting.
Somerset is a beautifully varied county. This view across the levels, with Glastonbury Tor in the distance is taken from a vantage picnic point at the top of  the Mendips.
You can eat inside or out, at the picnic table in the garden
This is a very spacious cottage for two - you can enjoy peaceful meals together in this tranquil setting

The patio and picnic table, just outside the French windows.
The L-shaped sofas create a relaxing area in the room.
The north Somerset coast is an easy drive to the West. This is the boardwalk at Weston-super-Mare.

I really liked the property. In fact it was better than I thought it would be, I didn't want to leave. My dog loved the garden and space she had to wander in.

December 2017

Really my idea of heaven, nice and quiet. Lovely and warm property. Dog settled quite quickly, and enjoyed being in the garden. Wifi would have been a nice inclusion though. Especially as mobile signal is not brilliant!

September 2017

We had a lovely stay, in an exceptionally well equipped cottage (everything you can think of in terms of utensils is provided).

The owner was very friendly, very knowledgeable of the area, and able to provide excellent advice which was greatly received (even providing a location to exercise our dog on a morning).

Wonderful location, plenty of peace and quiet. The kitchen had all we needed and the shower room was excellent. It's only let down was that it could do with a good dusting.

Very peaceful,and a very nice owner who showed us round on arrival.perfect getaway for us.

Beautiful property in stunning location. Friendly owners. Secluded, quiet and private, yet only 30mins drive from many of Somersets coastal and inland attractions. Only improvements we'd recommend would be some minor refreshing of interior furnishings/accessories to give it a fresher feel. Overall though, a super holiday property which we would love to return to in the future. Ray, Bev & Jess (our cocky spaniel).

Cottage in excellent location. Garden not secure for dogs. If you are looking for a cosy cottage this might seem a little sparse otherwise we had an enjoyable holiday.

Thanks so much for your review. There is plenty of private outside space for you and your four-legged friends, but this isn't enclosed so we'd recommend that you don't leave them out there alone if they are inclined to wander. We're delighted that you enjoyed the location and hope that you got a chance to explore the lovely countryside in that area. Tanya, Customer Support

The cottage is an excellent conversion of a barn, well equipped and in an excellent position to take advantage of the attractions of North Somerset. Each day started with a walk on the Mendip hills with my dog before we drove off to visit one of these attractions and ending the day in one of the pubs recommended by the helpful owner.

The property does not stand in enclosed grounds. This did not affect us as our dog did not wander far but other dog owners may prefer a property with fully enclosed grounds.

The Barn is lovely for a relaxing holiday. Close to lots of interesting places to visit.

If you are looking to get away from it all whilst still being within a reasonable drive of all Somerdet had to offer then this is the place for two.

An ideal cottage for a couple, in a lovely setting and well located for easy access to a good range of attractions. The cottage is well equipped and dog friendly with a secure garden.

A lovely place to stay if you are looking for peace and quiet and is close to most attractions. A few local pubs which do good pub food and very dog friendly.
