This superb property, located in the peaceful village of Stawell, is an ideal place for the family to enjoy some countryside tranquillity. Sleeping four across two bedrooms, plus space for two furry family members, it won’t be long until you’re feeling refreshed and ready to discover all the wonders that are just outside the door. Only 11 miles from historic Glastonbury, you and your family can enjoy the National Trust’s Tor, the Abbey as well as plenty of shops and cafes that welcome four-pawed pals. Once you’re back home, sink into the sofas and relax in front of the wood burner, your canine by your feet.

 

This single-level barn conversion is bright and welcoming with pretty original features, including exposed wooden beams and vaulted ceilings. The open-plan living area makes for a sociable and happy space to come back to after a long day sightseeing, and warm homely touches make it a calming place to wind down in the evening. There’s no need to eat out since the kitchen has everything you need to cook up a storm, plus you can eat alfresco in the enclosed courtyard while the dogs stretch their legs.

 

This property is an ideal base for touring Somerset. Make sure you visit the historic city of Wells (16 miles), where its cathedral is known as the ‘most poetic of the English cathedrals’, and sample some Somerset cider and cheddar cheese at the many independent restaurants.

The Stables is a lovely place to stay and feels very cosy and we were completely relaxed. There is everything you need if you want to self cater, or if not, there are several pubs within a short driving distance. The hot tub is great, we only used it once as our visit was in the middle of December so would like to go back and give it a try in warmeRead morer weather and make more use of the outside space.
