Orchard View

Re-modelled Dutch Barn on a working farm on the Somerset Levels, with wonderful country views. Sleeping 12 in 6 bedrooms, it has a HOT TUB, POOL TABLE and TABLE FOOTBALL. Room for 1 more guest at an extra charge. 2 toddler beds (4yrs and under) and 1 cot at no extra charge.

From the outside this luxury large group holiday house is reminiscent of the Dutch Barn that once stood here, with a curved roof and cedar cladding; step inside and you’ll notice straightaway how light and airy it is, and how homely. Off to the right of the spacious hallway is a big kitchen-diner, all fully modern and well equipped with sparkling granite worktops and everything you need to cook up and enjoy a happy celebration meal. There’s underfloor heating but if you want some extra warmth or just a nice cosy feel, you can light the double-sided wood-burner (logs supplied).

The hallway continues through to the sitting room, a whopper of a room, with big fat sofas to snuggle up on, a widescreen TV, and a pool table to one end. French doors lead out to the patio.

Also on the ground floor are Bedrooms 5 and 6, with a shared wet room accessed from two sides – a good set up for a family, with Mum & Dad in one room and two children in the other. Bear in mind that Bedrooms 1, 3, 4 and 5 all have zip and link beds so you can request that they’re arranged as you want them – superkings or twins. There’s also a good sized utility room in this part of the house, with table football, a washer and dryer, and an extra fridge.

Upstairs the wide landing leads round to Bedroom 1, with an en suite walk-in shower; this room can accommodate an extra single bed (additional charge) so it serves well for a small family. Next to this is the main bathroom with a free-standing bath and a corner shower. Also on this floor are Bedrooms 2-4, all good sizes with super comfy beds, and finished in soothing neutral tones with playful splashes of colour. What you’ll appreciate is that most of the bedrooms have an outlook of the gorgeous countryside; to sit in bed with a cup of tea each morning admiring those views makes a great start to the day.

At the back of the house is an enclosed garden with lawns and a big patio where there’s outdoor furniture, a barbecue, and a hot tub. Sit back and relax, breathe in that wholesome country air and soak up the bucolic charm of the orchard beyond the garden; in the spring when the trees are frothy with apple blossom it’s a dream, sheep happily graze, chickens peck about and an old tractor rests in peace. Perfick.
