Property code: BLAFA

This beautifully presented barn conversion is the perfect choice for those looking for a home from home for friends and families alike.

Nestled within a 300-acre working dairy farm near the Devon and Somerset border sits this 7th-century farmhouse; a stylish large self-catering home designed with the grandest of gatherings in mind. Indulge in daily long walks with your dog(s) and evenings in the private hot tub under the stars. The rolling country views and fresh Somerset air are sure to relax and renew all those who stay.

Both old-fashioned and modern-day characteristics can be found in abundance, with exposed beams, slate flooring and a large inglenook fireplace housing a wood burner. The living room is a homely place to gather in the evenings by the crackling fire, sharing stories and planning where to visit next. Pick up fresh produce on your adventures and cook up a feast in the galley-style kitchen. In the warmer months, set up the BBQ, dine alfresco and relish in the long evenings while your dog plays in the enclosed garden.

The property is idyllically placed between the Quantock and Blackdown Hills Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty; protected as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1991. Steep ridges, verdant valleys and fresh springs make for an exciting place of discovery for four-legged friends to sniff out their own treasure. To feel the sand beneath paws and feet, head 22 miles north to Dunster, a dog-friendly beach all year round with plenty of suitable eateries nearby, too.

We're already missing the Stables, especially the log burner and amazingly comfy lounge furniture. We had the best week's stay and have returned home feeling really relaxed. We especially loved the ultra dog secure courtyard as our rescue staffy (houdini) had no way of escaping. Great location if you want to get away and relax. Thanks
