Orchard View

Converted Dutch Barn on a working farm on the Somerset Levels. Sleeps 12 in 6 bedrooms, with room for 1 more guest at an extra charge; there’s a hot tub, table football and a pool table. 2 toddler beds for age 4 years and under (charged). 1 cot for age 2 years and under. Sorry, no pets.

Orchard View was built on the footprint of an old Dutch barn and even has the same curved roof; outside is very contemporary, clad in cedar from Longleat Forest, inside is spacious, modern and homely. This large group holiday house sleeps 12 in 6 bedrooms and has room for 1 more guest at an extra charge.

Step into the oak floored hallway, light and airy, with stairs rising to the side. To the right is the kitchen/dining room, very well equipped and with a long chunky table to seat your whole party. A double sided wood-burner keeps you warm in the winter if you need a little more than the underfloor heating, and to the side a picture window frames the view of the fields and open countryside.

Left of the hall is Bedroom 5, access friendly, with zip and link beds (super king or twin) and an adjoining wet room. Next along the hall there’s a utility room which also has access to the wet room and has laundry facilities, a fridge and table football. There’s a door to the garden and another to Bedroom 6 which has a double bed. These interconnecting rooms make a great set up for a family – parents in one bedroom, kids in the other, and shared use of the wet room.

Straight ahead from the hall is the living room; calm and capacious with big plump sofas for you all to sprawl on when you’re watching a movie or the latest match on the widescreen TV. Big windows and French doors let the daylight flood in; oak floors and a colourful rug add a homely touch, painted steel girders bring a contemporary twist, and if you fancy some extra warmth you can light the double sided wood-burning stove between this room and the dining area. Have a game of pool, open the doors wide on hot days and step out onto the patio to soak up the sunshine.

Upstairs off a wide landing are Bedroom 1-4; Bedroom 1 has zip and link beds (super king or twin) and an optional extra single bed (charged), and a roomy ensuite with a walk-in rainfall shower. Stay in bed with a cup of tea each morning and admire the far reaching views - a wonderful way to start the day.

Bedroom 2 has a double bed and Bedrooms 3 and 4 both have zip and links (super king or twin); these rooms all have shared use of the large family bathroom across the landing where there’s a free standing contemporary bath and a corner shower. All bedrooms have restful neutral decor with just the right amount of colourful touches.

At the back of the house there’s an enclosed garden; on the patio there’s a barbecue, outdoor furniture and a hot tub, beyond is a lawn. Slip into the hot tub for a soak and enjoy the views over the orchard and the Somerset countryside. Time to unwind and make memories to last a lifetime.
