Tucked away in a charming rural village, Old Farm Stables is a high quality, characterful conversion. Positioned in a private setting, on the edge of the owners' home, the property is perfect for a couple looking for an idyllic retreat.
As soon as you step through the front door you are met with a very spacious and inviting open plan space that encompasses the kitchen, dining-area and sitting-area. The vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and brickwork pay homage to the history of this charming building that has been thoughtfully converted by the owners. The kitchen is excellently equipped with everything you could need to cook up romantic meals. Somerset is known for its wonderful produce so be sure to pick up some local cider, or cave-aged Wookey Hole cheddar.
Whatever the season, Old Farm Stables offers a wonderful place for a well-earned break. When the sun is shining open up the patio doors and enjoy the private and fully enclosed outside space, complete with sunny patio. As well as this space, there is an area of lawn you are most welcome to relax in at the front of the property. Your four-legged friend will be happy curled up by your feet in the fresh air too. On autumnal evenings light the wood-burner and cosy up watching the flames flicker.
Heading through to the bedroom there is a luxurious king-size bed with super soft linen ensuring you of a restful night's sleep. There is plenty of space for your holiday clothes and with dual-aspect windows there are pretty views over both the front and rear of the property. Just off the bedroom is the modern shower-room.
Old Farm Stables is excellently positioned to explore the local area. Less than two miles away is the prestigious Haynes Motor Museum that boasts the UK's largest collection of cars and motorbikes. After a day of exploring here, head for a pit stop at the Red Lion in Babcary approximately three miles away. A short drive away is Castle Cary, a charming market town with a number of independent shops and places to stop for a coffee. A must do is to walk from the town to the top of Lodge Hill and take in the wonderful views right across to the Mendip Hills. For a special treat, head to the wonderful country estate The Newt which is home to The Botanical Rooms, an elegant, seasonal restaurant serving excellent food.
Another place on your holiday visit list should be Bruton, a historic town that has a cosmopolitan feel. Keep an eye out for the famous dovecote which was built in the 16th Century and is now owned by the National Trust. As well as a number of Somerset delights, Old Farm Stables is not far from its bordering county neighbour of Dorset. A holiday in this location wouldn't be complete without hopping in the car and heading to the Jurassic Coast where millions of years of history can be seen before your eyes. Towering golden cliffs, crashing waves and incredible vistas await you.
