Originally built for one of the prosperous farms in the area, this 17th-century stone and brick cob barn has been carefully renovated to offer spacious and luxurious holiday accommodation, whilst retaining character and charm. Sleeping 12 guests in 6 en suite bedrooms, Jurston Barn is set in private landscaped grounds and has the added benefit of a 10m heated indoor swimming pool.
Jurston Barn enjoys a lovely approach along a secluded private lane which runs into a gravel drive, so you are assured of peace and tranquility.
There are miles of beautiful Somerset countryside to explore from your doorstep and if you like the idea of finding a quiet pub for a relaxed lunch, there are several close by - The Half Moon in Clayhidon and The Martlett at Langford Budville are both popular with locals. Jurston Barn is only a short stroll away from the pretty market town of Wellington, with a range of independent shops including a traditional butchers, bakers, grocers, and award-winning fishmongers, so plenty of opportunity to sample the local food! For some more serious retail therapy head for the county town of Taunton or Exeter.
If you wish to venture further afield, how about some old fashioned bucket and spade fun on one of the Somerset beaches, or the famous Jurassic Coast (both can be reached within 45 minutes)? We'd highly recommend a visit to Lyme Regis, or Charmouth where you can go rockpooling or fossil hunting. Or have a day out amongst the softly undualting hills and lush valleys of Exmoor National Park, or the rugged wilds of Dartmoor.
You may find it difficult to tear yourself away from Jurston Barn; it's a haven of peace and tranquility. Should you need any help with anything, the helpful owners live in the neighbouring property, a listed traditional Somerset longhouse which dates back to 1280.
