Nestled quietly in tranquil countryside beside an established lake in the hamlet of Mill Cross and at the foot of the stunning Quantock Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), Swallows Barn is an exclusive luxury timber clad holiday home.

The property offers the perfect blend of peace and quiet with easy access to many amenities and attractions. Walk out the front door and the sound of birdsong and nothing else is striking - a true countryside idyll. Yet the market town of Taunton is no more than 2 miles away, offering a wide range of retail and dining options, along with a theatre and multi-screen theatre.

Enjoying the countryside could not be easier as whichever way you turn at the gate you will find yourself strolling or cycling along miles of leaf lined lanes with rolling fields and the Quantock Hills and Exmoor stretching out before you.

The West Country region

Whether your idea of the perfect holiday is a stay in rambling countryside, a bustling coastal resort or a picture postcard cottage in a quaint town, you will find it in Somerset.

There are the majestic gardens of Hestercombe and Stourhead to explore, and there are a range of superb National Trust properties and treasures to visit in the local area.


Taunton is Somerset’s County town, rich in history and home to both Somerset County Cricket Club and Taunton Race course. As well as a fabulous range of shops and places to eat and drink, the town is rich in culture and a centre for the arts.

The town is also a great location from which to explore the region, its history and legends. This is the land of King Alfred, King Arthur, and Lorna Doone’s Exmoor.
