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, sleeping 14 guests in 7 bedrooms. Quantock Barns retain much traditional charm and are aptly named - for example, The Grazing Paddock, Wagon Wheel, and The Shire Horse. There's the main barn, The Wagon House, with a hot tub, and 5 smaller self-contained suites 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 space and natural light; the overall feels are calm and restful, helping you to completely unwind on your holiday.

With the large courtyard and the games room for leisure and relaxation, you may not feel the need to go anywhere else, but if you do, but just a stone's throw from Quantock Barns is Kitchen at Quantock Lakes, so 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. On your doorstep are plenty of attractions and opportunities for outdoor activities; the wild, rugged beauty of the Quantock Hills is ripe for exploring, whether it's on foot or by by bike. The Somerset Coast is within easy reach and because it's so varied you can choose a beach to suit you - Minehead is great for family fun on the wide sands, Watchet is good for just chillin' and watching the world go by, Kilve is one for fossil hunting and rockpooling; Brean is good for dog walking, and if you're a surf lover, head down to Croyde just over the Devon border.

You'll find historic houses to visit and quaint villages to stumble upon; Dunster is a gem with it's medieval Yarn Market and standing high above the streets, a medieval castle (NT). Venture out for the day to the heather topped heaths and steep wooded combes of Exmoor; pootle around Porlock Weir, walk up the tree-lined cliffs to tiny Culbone Church, or amble along the river at Watersmeet. You could even get up early and take a trip out to the magical Somerset Levels where you can climb to the top of Glastonbury Tor and visit Wells cathedral. Have a day out on the Jurassic coast; go mackerel fishing at Lyme Regis; stroll along the promenade at Regency Sidmouth, tuck into crab sandwiches at the beach cafe at Beer.
