Turn right at the evergreen oak and follow the leafy lane to the river. Here, on the banks of a gently flowing stream, is a secluded retreat: a dinky stone barn surrounded by neat patios and green lawns. A lavender-fringed path winds down to a stone bench at the edge of the garden jutting out into the stream. Sit and dangle toes in the water and spot trout and heron; you may even catch the iridescent blue flashes of the kingfisher darting across the water. You enter through a vintage oak door into a stunning living/kitchen area that reaches up to the apex. The walls are white, the floors stripped oak, Tony and Ann have splashed their creative flourishes all over: fresh yellow bar stalls at the kitchen island, a medieval chair with stage lighting, a porthole window on the landing and a large wood burner in the corner. The beautiful kitchen at the far end sits under a chunky horizontal beam. The double room downstairs has a Victorian bedstead. Open the velux in the twin room upstairs for a view of Glastonbury Tor. A peaceful hideaway where the sound of chirruping starlings and babbling water break the silence.

The village of Keinton Mandeville has a well stocked village shop, one pub and two farm shops all in walking distance. There are plenty of pubs serving good food close to The Mill Barn. The old market towns of Castle Cary, Somerton, Wells and Sherborne are near by and many lovely walks and bike rides to enjoy in the area.

The Mill Barn is in close proximity to most attraction in central Somerset such as Glastonbury Abbey & Tor, Wells Cathedral, Cheddar Gorge and The National Trust properties Montecute House, Lytes Cary Manor and Stourhead. Fleet Air Arm Museum, Haynes Motor museum and Clarks Village factory outlet are great options for rainy days.

"Absolutely perfect"

We had a great five night stay at Mill Barn. The property is in a wonderful, quiet rural location but only a 10 minute walk to a decent pub, serving good home cooked food. Mill Barn is beautifully and tastefully decorated to a high standard with great attention to detail. The lounge is modern, spacious and homely. You can see where they have used some of the wood from the original barn and the use of wood and granite throughout is a great look. The kitchen area is well set out and really well equipped. The bathroom was extremely clean with plenty of hot water when needed, a great power shower and some nice smelling products for use. The garden is another wonderful, tranquil spot with a running stream by which you can sit on stone carved seats and relax or dine out on the secluded patio table and chairs. There were lots of maps, books, games, CDs and DVDs. The owners are friendly, always happy to help but totally unobtrusive. This is simply one of the best rentals we have stayed in, out of many, and comes highly recommended.
