Coat Barn

A Grade II listed former barn in a peaceful Somerset hamlet; it sleeps 18 people in 8 en suite bedrooms, plus there's an indoor pool and a games room

On a quiet lane in the tiny hamlet of Coat near Martock in South Somerset, Coat Barn has been carefully converted from centuries old farm buildings to large and luxurious self catering holiday accommodation that brings original features and contemporary styling together seamlessly. Swish and snazzy up-to-the-minute facilities, aged stone walls and big expanses of glass that allow natural light to pour in; light and airy in the summer, warm and cosy in the winter - perfect for large family holidays and happy gatherings.

This impressive holiday home sleeps 18 people in 8 stylish and spacious en suite bedrooms; a commodious kitchen, dining hall and living room means there's plenty of space for celebrations, for a birthday feast or champagne and canapes. Right in the middle is a private courtyard with a big lawned area that's great for sunbathing or for children to play; there's a fantastic indoor swimming pool and an upstairs games room. You'll have happy days and peaceful nights at Coat Barn.

Go out and explore the local area, there's plenty to see and do within just a few miles. Ham Hill Country Park is a mere 10 minutes away with some of the most amazing views in South Somerset; find a nice spot for a picnic and have a walk around, go to the Prince of Wales pub for lunch, or down to the Lord Nelson at Norton-sub-Hamdon. Just down the road from Coat Barn is a gorgeous walk along the banks of the River Parrett to Kingsbury Episcopi where you can stop for lunch at the Wyndham Arms. Pootle round the lanes to Burrow Hill Cider and have a guided tour of the farm and orchards, soak up the tranquility of the nature reserves on the Somerset Levels - Shapwick Heath, Westhay Moor or Catcott Lows. Have a mooch about the town at Somerton and go to the White Hart for lunch; for something different take in the spiritual vibe of Glastonbury and climb the Tor for far reaching views of the Somerset landscape. Visit Wells on market day, take in the hallowed majesty of the cathedral and the charm of Vicar's Close. Feel the timeless beauty of the Mendip Hills , the craggy Ebbor Gorge  and fun-filled Wookey Hole; take a shopping trip to Clarks Village, or to Yeovil, both just 20 minutes away. Have a day out gallavanting on Exmoor; heather clad heaths, steep wooded valleys and winding country lanes; go rockpooling or fossil hunting along the world famous Jurassic Coast, catch the vibrant street market at Bridport and potter on to West Bay, for fish and chips. For provisions and a morning's browse pop out to the nearby market towns of South PethertonCrewkerneIlminster.

Idle the hours away relaxing around the pool, doing cartwheels on the lawn, or ping-ponging in the games room; snuggle up on the vast horseshoe sofa with a good read or a captivating movie, put your pinnies on and have a family bake off in the kitchen, go gadding about in the countryside. Whatever you want to do, whether it's a week long holiday, a 2 or 3 night weekend break or a 4 night midweeker, you'll love your stay at Coat Barn.
