The Estate and its Farmhouse were created in 1350 and it was originally owned by Glastonbury Abbey. It rests comfortably in one of those hidden valleys of rural Somerset where the only traffic noise you'll ever hear is the clip clop of the occasional horse or perhaps the postman's van. Set in the rural centre of the triangle that is formed by Wells, Shepton Mallet and Glastonbury, The Barn will welcome you and your family to a comfortable country retreat which you can use to relax or as a base to explore the interesting surrounding area.
There are many wonderful attractions within striking distance of At the Farm. You can marvel at the magnificent cathedral in England's smallest city, Wells, or find that undiscovered Canaletto at the famous antique markets held at the Royal Bath and West showground several times a year. This part of Somerset is steeped in history with Glastonbury one of the nearest and most famous points of interest. Legend has it that King Arthur was buried in the Abbey and there is certainly something mysterious about the place and a climb up the Tor, which you can see from the estate, will not be forgotten. In the neighbouring village of Pilton other legends perform to a vast and appreciative crowd and the Glastonbury Festival has worldwide fame.
Wookey Hole Caves and Longleat are both within easy reach and famous centres for all the family to enjoy. Bath is less than an hours drive.
So whether it's a long or short holiday, a visit to one of the local schools or a stopover on business, At the Farm will provide the accommodation you need.
