Set in a rural location on a diversified working farm at the foot of the Quantock Hills in Somerset, these centuries old barns have been thoughtfully converted into luxury large group holiday accommodation that sleeps 14 guests in 7 bedrooms. Quantock Barns retain much traditional charm and each suite is aptly named - like The Grazing Paddock, Wagon Wheel, and Shire Horse. The main barn (The Wagon House), which has a hot tub, and the 5 smaller self-contained suites are set around a large paved courtyard with outdoor seating and a barbecue. Up to 10 more guests can be accommodated in 4 more self-contained suites; this is charged per suite - see Extra Beds for details.
This is the perfect solution for a big group of guests who appreciate personal space - there's room for you all to gather together, but you can have time out when you feel the need. All suites are finished to a high standard, with plenty of room and natural light; the overall feels are calm and restful, helping you to completely unwind on your holiday.
With the large courtyard, the hot tub and the games room for leisure and relaxation, you may not feel the need to go anywhere else, but if you do, there’s no shortage of things to see and do within a short drive. Just a stone's throw from Quantock Barns is Kitchen at Quantock Lakes, so you can wander down for breakfast, lunch or coffee and cake. Over the road is Nether Stowey, where you can visit Coleridge Cottage, once home to Romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The wild, rugged beauty of the Quantock Hills is ripe for exploring, whether it’s walking, cycling or pootling about the lanes in the car. Pack a picnic and walk from Lydeard Hill to Wills Neck, the highest point in the hills; stroll across Aisholt Common, or up through the sun-dappled woods at Holford Combe to the bracken-clad ridge.
The Somerset Coast isn’t far and because it's so varied you can choose a beach to suit you - Minehead and Blue Anchor are great for family fun on the wide sands, Watchet is good for just watching the world go by, Kilve is one for fossil hunting and rockpooling. Brean is a fantastic spot for dog walking and sunsets, and if you're a surf lover, it may be a little further, but Croyde just over the Devon border has some of the best waves in the country.
You'll find historic houses to visit and quaint villages to stumble upon; Dunster is a gem with its medieval Yarn Market and standing high above the streets, a medieval castle (NT). Venture out for a day spent discovering the heather-topped heaths and steep wooded combes of Exmoor; while away a couple of hours at Porlock Weir, walk up the tree-lined cliffs to tiny Culbone Church, or amble along the river at Watersmeet.
