This immaculate country-style single-storey barn conversion is within walking distance of the village pub and a mile from the vibrant market town of Frome.

Great for those searching for a peaceful holiday, this property sleeps four and one pup in comfort and style - perfect for couples and families. Grab a new leash of life walking woodland trails, hiking heathland and enjoying hours of fetch, returning cheerfully weary to country-style living at this immaculate retreat.

Wash the days excursions off your pup outside in the iron baths provided, before stepping into a warm welcome. All one level so your doggy can keep an eye on their pack, find exposed beams and vaulted ceilings in the open-plan living space. Your pup will be spoilt for choice with cosy places to snooze, whether curled up in front of the Aga, or sprawled in pole position in front of the flickering wood burner, an excellent way to recuperate after a day in the elements! In the morning, head from the bedroom into a small enclosed courtyard and enjoy a coffee as your canine chum potters in the early sun. Although on a complex of properties, this holiday home retains its privacy and benefits from a shared covered seating area outside, perfect for a spot of al fresco dining.

Situated near the Mendips (23 miles), find picturesque walks at the spectacular Cheddar Gorge and Ebbor Gorge (24 miles), pretty woodland trails in Stockhill wood (18 miles), and the pine and heather dotted trails at Black Down (24 miles). Tackle the walk up to Glastonbury Tor (19.5 miles), or head to the Chew Valley Lakes (24 miles), an area of woodland and wildflower meadow with wonderful views across the lake towards the Mendip Hills. The market town of Frome (1 miles) has a thriving arts scene, and Bath (15.5 miles) with its Georgian architecture, museums and thermal spa is a delight.

Beautiful barn conversion with all mod cons in a great location. Comfy and cosy, with wood burner for the colder months. Lovely hosts so welcoming, including their chickens and friendly dogs. Five mins drive from pretty Frome, with its many markets, and 15 mins from Longleat and Stourhead. We will be back and recommend to others.

We enjoyed a comfortable and cosy week at the property. It was accessible for my husband who is disabled but a shower chair would have been useful. The property is in an excellent location as there are many places of interest within easy driving distance. Overall, we enjoyed a happy week here.

The Milking Parlour has been finished to a first class standard. It is modern but with a charm about it. The wet rooms are fantastic, as are the beds and the kitchen. In my opinion I would rate it as a 5* plus. Simply beautiful. The added bonus of chickens is lovely and their eggs taste divine. I would have been more than hapoy to have moved in.

Very warm and homely cottage, beautifully made and in excellent, spotless condition. Worked perfectly for my disabled father too. Lovely friendly hosts - couldnt have asked for more, thank you!
