The detail

Ideal for a fabulous group trip with family and friends, the beautiful Gothic exterior of this church, built in 1838, hides a luxurious treat of a getaway. Enter this stunning conversion via the atrium, a breathtaking double height entrance hall with sweeping staircase, and take your Insta snaps immediately before claiming one of the six lovely, roomy bedrooms on the first and second floor. It's worth noting that the first bedroom, with its stained-glass windows, calm pale décor and wood flooring, makes a perfect spa room should you wish to order in some pampering treatments during your stay.

Make use of one of the three quirky bathrooms, don your finest apparel, and meet your companions in the Chancel Room. A vaulted living room with gothic windows overlooking the village and open countryside of the Mendip Hills, with views as far as the mystical Glastonbury Tor and the Isle of Avalon. This living area, with its glass wood-burning stove, manages to be both huge and cosy at the same time, and is the perfect spot to gather with a drink and marvel at how well this sort of living suits you. Lounge on the giant leather sofas or take yourself off to a comfy armchair in the corner to relax and unwind.

Catch the morning sun in the modern, fully-equipped, 44ft kitchen and cook a feast for (or with) your loved ones. This is a lovely clean, bright, social area for less formal dining and a perfect place to sip your morning coffee.

When you ascend the open-plan double staircase you'll find a spectacular banqueting gallery, with three original stained-glass windows, and a long elegant table which comfortably sits 15 or more, perfect for a grandiose dinner, or fish and chips with fizz.

With plenty of nooks and crannies, you can choose to throw yourself into the party, or take a relaxing minute on your own and enjoy the views. The place is open and airy without feeling cold or impersonal, and the colourful art dotted about adds a modern edge to this beautiful old church.

Outside you'll find a pretty decked courtyard complete with a covered and coveted hot tub for a luxurious soak.

East Horrington is a small village with lots of lovely countryside for long walks, horse-riding, clay-pigeon shooting, hot-air ballooning and karting. And if you want to spend all your time at the Church you can arrange for Sainsbury's to deliver. If, however, you're planning a big night out, Bath is only 35 minutes away, where a huge selection of bars, restaurants and clubs await you. And if you'd like to take advantage of one of its famous spas, we recommend Thermae, who have an open-air pool on the roof!
