Beautiful country farmhouse in Somerset, sleeping 14, with luxury styling and plenty of walks from your doorstep.
Please note: minimum stay for this property is: 2 nights low season & 3 nights high season
Atherstone Farmhouse's rural location makes it a great escape for those looking for a countryside retreat, with plenty of pubs to walk or cycle to nearby.
There are four comfortable bedrooms, all are en-suites and have deep mattresses, 400 thread count cotton bedding, indulgent mattress toppers and fluffy bathrobes. The master bedroom has a king-sized four poster bed, a roll-top bath and wood-burning stove in the bedroom. There is an en-suite loo.
The second bedroom can be setup with a superking-sized double or twin single beds, there is also a bunk bed in the room for extra kids. Its bathroom has a bath with shower above. The other two bedrooms can also be setup with superking-sized double beds, or twin single beds. Both also have walk-in showers and tiled floors with underfloor heating, but no bath.
The Farmhouse has a modern and well equipped eat-in kitchen with two electric ovens, a large induction hob, large fridge-freezer (including ice-machine) and dishwasher. The kitchen table can seat 10 comfortably. There is a separate utility room with a washer-drier.
The sitting room has comfortable sofas, a wood-burning stove set into a large old stone fireplace and, to make the most of any rainy days, there are a few board games in the house, as well as a 55’ flatscreen internet-connected TV with a Bluetooth soundbar. There is also a DAB radio / CD player that can also be used to play music / radio from a Bluetooth device.
Outside you'll find a large and luxurious wooden hot-tub complete with lights and an air-bubble system. There is also good-sized private lawn, a charcoal BBQ and teak outdoor table and chairs for the summer.
The farm is in the tiny hamlet of Atherstone, which is surrounded by fields and woods that are accessible on foot and bicycle through the myriad of local country lanes and footpaths. Nearby there are several pubs, some within walking distance – like the Barrington Boar – others a little further, but worth cycling or driving to, such as the Dinnington Docks or Lord Poulett Arms. Barrington House, a National Trust house with gardens open to the public, is nearby, as is Dillington House. The Dennis Chinaworks in Shepton Beauchamp are also very close and worth a visit, for the tea rooms as much as anything else.
There are several local cider producers whose orchards and presses are worth seeing such as Perry’s Cider in Dowlish Wake and Julian Temperley’s cider and cider brandy distillery at Burrow Hill.
Cots and high-chairs available on request, dogs allowed by agreement (and for a fee...sorry!)
