Grade II listed conversion full of character with stable doors, exposed beams, arched windows, private entrance and enclosed courtyard.

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.

Really enjoyed our stay there with family and dog and good walks there for the dog in the village of Stawell. The owners Penny and Ian came round on first night to make sure everything was ok which was a nice touch and tell us about local area. They left cakes in the fridge which was very welcome. The cottage is very well placed for days out at StrRead moreeet Clarks Village, Glastonbury,The Smallest City of Wells and close to the beach at Burnham On Sea. All within a few miles. We'll go again sometime. Hide

Pleasant stay in peaceful surroundings. Secure sunny courtyard, ideal if you have a dog. Enjoyed the welcome gift of wine and cakes. Local pub and restaurant only 15 minute walk away but up a very steep narrow road.

The Old Stables is in a quiet hamlet surrounded by farmland. Its a very cosy cottage with lots of homely touches such as cushions, blankets & rugs. The kitchen is well laid out & we enjoyed cooking & eating there. The nearest pub is on the main road which was a 20 minute stroll uphill & a 13 minute walk back but we preferred the longer 2 & a half mRead moreile walk to the ring o bells at Moorlinch. Very peaceful & quiet. The owners live next to the cottage & they were very welcoming. Great! Hide
