Orchard View is a place where you can really unwind on your family holiday in the UK; an old Dutch Barn has been given a whole new life and sleeps 12 guests in 6 bedrooms, with room for 1 more guest at an extra charge. The style is fresh and modern with bright splashes of colour; the country themed prints on the walls are so in keeping. With a hot tub, pool table and table football, plus space for the little ones to run around, there's something for all ages. Tucked away on a working farm, this is one big helping of country life; plenty of fresh air and gorgeous views of the Somerset countryside. Just perfect for happy family holidays and celebrations, gatherings of friends, and something different for corporate hospitality.

Orchard View sits high on a hillside with views over the Somerset Levels to the Polden Hills. The setting is nothing short of bucolic, with an apple orchard at the end of the garden; there's a ramshackle chicken shed, mistletoe scrambles up the trees, an old tractor rests and rusts in peace, sheep graze contentedly beneath the blossom in springtime. Just over the fence is the hay barn and stables with miniature ponies you can stroke; the farmer and his wife live just across the yard in their rambling stone house where cider was once made.

A 5 minute drive away is the little town of Langport with a supermarket, independent shops and eateries, and a riverside walk. Stroll along the river to Muchelney to see the abbey ruins and the Priest's House. Spend an afternoon in Glastonbury, taking in the mystic vibe; visit the abbey and climb to the top of the famous Tor. Put the world to rights over a pint of scrumpy in the shack at Bere Cider Company or Wilkins Cider Farm near Wedmore.

Go for an amble from the doorstep to the nature reserve at Turn Hill where there are panoramic views out over the Levels, discover the tranquil wetland reserves that are a haven for birdlife; spot butterflies, dragonflies, and if you're very, very lucky, otters at play. Catcott Lows, Shapwick Heath and Greylake are beautiful; best for starling murmurations in the winter is Ham Wall.  

Pootle about and find a charming country inn to stop by; try The Sheppey at Lower Godney, sit on the terrace watching fish swim by in the river, or sip a pint at the Railway Inn at Meare after a stroll along the canal. Have a lazy lunch at the King Alfred Inn at Burrowbridge after a climb to the top of Burrow Mump where there's a ruined chapel, or at the rustic Halfway House at Pitney. Go to Wedmore to browse the independent shops and dine at The Swan Inn, or for full-on retail therapy head for Clark's Village or the county town of Taunton.

Have a day trip to the Jurassic Coast where you can take the kids to Dinosaurland Fossil Museum and the Marine Aquarium at Lyme Regis, or take a mackerel fishing trip out to sea and catch your supper. If you like historic houses and gorgeous gardens you'll like Montacute House, Barrington Court and Forde Abbey. When you get back to Orchard View take a glass of your favourite tipple out onto the patio and enjoy the tranquility as the birds come in to roost and the sunsets over the orchard; such bliss.
