Converted into a stunning place to hide with a private hot tub, this refurbished 19th Century barn is brimming with style – explore coast and country from this Somerset farm.
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
The elegant boutique-feel of The Hideaway gives this Somerset barn conversion something special. Within walking distance of Crewkerne – and the nearest gastropub – it’s a fine farm getaway for couples heading for the Westcountry.
Looking out over woodland and fields, the barn dates from the 1800s. Now enjoying a new lease of life, its furnishings are exquisite and the living spaces light and open-plan. You can walk straight from the sitting room to the patio which gets plenty of sun, and provides a lovely breakfast spot. You can also enjoy a relaxing soak in your own private hot tub, the ideal place to rest and unwind after a day exploring the peaceful Somerset countryside.
There’s a log-burner, TV and DVD player inside, as well as a large, comfy sofa and dining area. With its bare-brick wall, the kitchen is pretty and well-equipped, and you may find a bottle of wine waiting for you too, along with tea, coffee and biscuits.
A luxurious roll-top bath is a highlight of the bathroom, while the bedroom combines sophistication with a few rustic touches to great effect. There is also a separate shower. The bed is king-size, of course, with beautiful, top-quality bedding the cherry on the cake.
The market town of Crewkerne has a pretty centre to discover, with an antiques centre, supermarkets and cafés, and its railway station enjoys a direct connection with London Waterloo – around two and a half hours away. The larger town of Yeovil lies around nine miles from Crewkerne, and, if village life is more your thing, head for Hinton St George. It’s a little over a mile away and has an award-winning pub and a tea room to discover.
Some familiar sights can be found along the Jurassic Coast. You may recognise West Bay from the TV series ‘Broadchurch’, and neighbouring Bridport’s cultural scene is worth checking out too. There are regular markets full of arts, crafts and vintage finds, plus the independent cinema ‘The Electric Palace’.
Around 30 minutes’ drive away, Lyme Regis is also no stranger to the screen, having featured memorably in ‘The French Lieutenant’s Woman’. Bookshops, boutiques and museums make it easy to spend a day there, and a micro-brewery and art gallery can be found housed in an old water-mill.
Taunton, Wells, Glastonbury and the natural wonders of East Devon are all within reach, so there are endless possibilities for exploring when you venture out from The Hideaway.
