Property code: 66326

This detached barn conversion has been thoughtfully designed and no attention to detail has been forgotten making this a truly unforgettable retreat in stunning rural surroundings.

In the heart of the owner’s working farm, tails will be wagging at this wonderful barn conversion with countryside walks straight from the door. Situated in the pretty village of Kilmington, sniff out the best route up Whitesheet Hill before stopping in the dog-friendly village pub to sample some local ales and locally sourced food. Climb up Long Knoll for a romp along the Ridgeway and some spectacular views across the Wiltshire countryside. Surrounded by open farmland, your wonderful barn conversion blends traditional features with contemporary style. With vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, your open-plan living accommodation has a light and airy feel.

After a long walk in the countryside, clean up muddy boots and paws in the utility room before relaxing on one of the cosy sofas in the living area. Rustle up family meals in the stylish kitchen to share around the dining table and chat about the highlights of your day. When it’s time for bed, head through to the two bedrooms. The spacious master bedroom has the benefit of a modern en-suite shower room. There is a further twin bedroom and family bathroom. Outside is a large enclosed garden for your four-legged friend to explore while you fire up the BBQ for an al fresco meal on the secluded patio.

With designated doggy hours and five estate walks to explore at Stourhead House (1.5 miles) you’d be barking mad not to visit this National Trust property which has picnic spots and water bowls provided for your pup. Take the lead and let your dog sniff out the winner at Wincanton Racecourse (10.5 miles) for a day of equine excitement. Further afield, discover the historic spa town of Bath (22 miles) for riverbank walks, or why not step onboard a sight-seeing cruise for a tranquil journey down the Avon with your hound?

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • Sleeps 4 + 1
  • 2 bedrooms – 1 king-size and 1 twin zip-and-link (which can be made into a super-king-size on request)
  • Z bed available for additional £25 per stay
  • 1 en-suite shower room and 1 bathroom
  • Electric Range with hob and ovens, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher
  • Utility room with washing machine

Our holiday coincided with the beginning of the fuel crisis so we were delighted wed book such a spacious, comfortable cottage with so much to do on our doorstep. Being able to leave the car behind was a real bonus! Home Barn is a great place to relax in and explore from. Highly recommended.

This barn is stunning & very comfortable. Loads of space & couldnt fault for it. The only issue was that the local pub which you can walk to is shut & doesnt look like re-opening - this did make a huge difference as you need to drive everywhere.

The only issue (which is not really with the property itself) is that there is no mobile phone signal for vodafone.
