Charming 2 Bedroom Barn Conversion near the Quantock Hills
Completely rebuilt from 2013 to 2014, Dobbie’s Barn is a stunning example of a bespoke barn conversion. It retains all the original beams and has a wonderful vaulted ceiling and hand-forged lights. Outside is a large veranda with spacious outdoor seated areas for dining outdoors in summer, whilst inside the wood burner (supply of logs provided for use during your stay) gives a cosy feel for cooler evenings.
Dobbbie’s Barn is situated at the head of a private track which is also a public footpath and from where there are excellent views of the Quantock Hills. The property sits in its own land of half an acre – there are no other holiday lets – and enjoys an extremely quiet spot with attractive gardens and landscaping. This is a wonderful rural retreat for those looking to relax in the tranquil Somerset countryside.
