House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8

In a tranquil setting, surrounded by unspoilt countryside on the Somerset Levels, this beautifully presented, detached barn conversion, dating back to 1867, has undergone sympathetic and extensive renovation. The property has been featured in the 25 Beautiful Homes magazine (July 2008) and the Homebuilding & Renovating magazine (June 2006). Set in the grounds of the owners' home, the barn is approached by a private driveway and boasts its own garden of approximately ¼ acre, with mature trees and flower beds. The holiday property retains much charm and character - with oak beams, oak floors in the bedrooms, and an oak staircase that leads to a galleried landing which can be viewed from the open-plan living/dining area and kitchen below, and the structure of the green oak frame can be seen right up to roof level. The comfort of underfloor heating below natural stone tiles has been incorporated for most of the ground floor. Moorhouse Barn enjoys wonderful views of Glastonbury Tor from the copse adjacent to the property, where sunsets can be watched. The Mendip Hills and Somerset Levels offer excellent walking whilst horse riding and cycling are also available. Golf is available locally, or, for the fishing enthusiast, there is the River Brue nearby. Pilton, the site of the Glastonbury Festival and Millfield School are 3 miles. Enjoy the spectacular south west winter carnivals which take place at Glastonbury, Wells, Bridgwater and the surrounding towns. The cathedral city of Wells is just 7 miles, and Cheddar, with its famous gorge, is within an easy drive, offering excellent day trips. There are National Trust properties and gardens in the area including Montecute House, Stourhead, West Pennard Court Barn, King Johns Hunting Lodge, Treasurer's House, Barrington Court and Stoke-sub-Hamdon Priory. The North Somerset Coast can be reached within one hour. Numerous country pubs and restaurants are within easy reach. Shop ¼ mile.
