This converted single-storey barn is in a peaceful rural position on the edge of Somerset’s Mendip Hills, within easy reach of Bath, Bristol and Wells. Ashey Barn is a perfect base for a walking holiday or for visiting the historic sites of this varied county – Wells Cathedral, Glastonbury Tor and the unique Somerset Levels.

With lofty open plan living space and a really large double bedroom, the accommodation is particularly spacious, sitting in its own dedicated area within the extensive grounds of the owner's lovely country house. The property has its own private driveway off a quiet country lane, off-road parking and a south-facing garden – you could not find a more convenient or relaxing place to stay.

It is good to find a property for two that is so spacious, with great space outside too – French windows to the patio and a sheltered garden. The garage is for you to use – ideal for storing bikes if you wish to bring them.

Easy access from the M4 and M5 (via Bristol) is a bonus and yet the location could not feel more peaceful, surrounded by pretty countryside and with the Mendip Hills rising gently above the village. Join the Mendip Way at Cheddar Combe just a mile or so up the valley or explore the famous Cheddar Gorge and its lesser known 'sister' The Ebbor Gorge – where you will find the most amazing panoramic views right across the Somerset Levels.

Dogs are welcome here and you will find country walks right on the doorstep. A few miles further along the valley are Blagdon and Chew Valley Lakes and there is a wonderful walk at Cheddar Reservoir too. Axbridge is well worth a visit – a medieval town with stunning timber-framed buildings.
