View Room Information
Setting the mood for pure escapism, this beautiful barn conversion in rural Somerset is a dream retreat for families and couples; where luxury and space come together in splendid sophistication, and a striking landscape creates a location that is simply out of this world. Centrally located to nearby Cheddar Gorge as well as to the festival town of Glastonbury and the cathedral city of Wells, the property couldn't be better placed; with the cosmopolitan city of Bristol and historical city of Bath within easy reach as well. Just ten minutes drive away is the seaside town of Weston Super Mare, where its sprawling stretch of sand and calm waters offer visitors ample opportunity for bucket and spade days or long beach walks.

Once a humble farm building, The Cowshed’s exterior which features original stone walls, now boasts contemporary roof lights, modern brickwork and a series of double glazed doors that open out to a large, landscaped courtyard garden that offers the perfect spot for enjoying drinks al-fresco as well as countryside views frequented by sheep, deer and other local wildlife who come visiting. An open barn sits alongside the garden to house a fabulous six-person hot tub which, being under cover means a relaxing soak can be enjoyed morning or night no matter what the weather gets up to.

Inside, the atmosphere is one of warmth and elegance, with neutral tones and natural textures creating a space that feels both homely and inviting. Sumptuous soft furnishings and modern features adorn the rooms, and an atmosphere of airiness pervades throughout thanks to high pitched ceilings, wide windows and exposed roof timbers. At the heart of the home, the open plan living / cooking / dining area with its fabulous wood-burning stove, creates a convivial space for spending time together with family and friends, whether lounging across the sinkable sofa in front of the television, chatting over coffee at the breakfast bar while whipping up a full English, or converging round the farmhouse table for a home cooked evening meal. Two beautiful ground floor bedrooms (one with en-suite) have deliciously comfortable beds as well as their own access out to the garden, while upstairs via the home’s chunky oak staircase, lies a third spacious bedroom with a plush, upholstered sleigh bed and double volume ceiling.

Situated in the quintessentially Somerset village of Brent Knoll, the Cowshed is well positioned for making the most of all that this beautiful part of the world has to offer. From the cycling paths on the Levels to the walking trails through the Mendip and Quantock Hills (both of which are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), visitors will have plenty of fresh air adventure during their stay at this beautiful country home. Other activities in the area include kayaking, fishing and horse-riding, as well as the attractions of Wookey Hole, Brean Down beach or Weston Super Mare which are great for getting everyone out and about during the day.

A number of independent shops and restaurants can be found nearby with local pubs including the Red Cow in Brent Knoll itself, or the Railway Inn located right next to the Somerset Thatchers Cider Factory. A little further away lie the picturesque villages of Mark, Rowberrow and Wedmore where pubs like The George and The Swan make for great places to eat out if home cooking is off the agenda.

With plentiful space within bedroom three, a stylish sofa bed for one extra guest will be available to facilitate family groups of up to 7 and this is expected to be available in early to mid-July. If this is important to the booking, please call to check for a delivery update.
