'The Byre' is our luxury holiday home, situated in rural tranquillity on the Somerset / Devon border - a perfect location to relax, or explore the surrounding area.

'The Byre' was newly converted from an old farm building in the latter part of 2010 - and has been let out from late 2010. Set in a rural location on the Somerset / Devon border, 'The Byre' is an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area or visiting the numerous attractions. It is situated just 200 metres from the Grand Western Canal nature reserve - with excellent walking, fishing and cycling along 12 miles of canal.

Further afield are the historic town of Wellington, the Blackdown Hills and of course the open expanses of Exmoor. The coasts of West Somerset, North Devon, and South Devon, each with their unique features, are also easily accessible

Further details indoors

As well as being an excellent base, we set out to make a luxury holiday home as well, so you can relax away from it all. 'The Byre' is furnished throughout in oak and leather, has superior beds and soft furnishings, a fitted kitchen and a state of the art TV (LED backlit with Blu-Ray player / home cinema) plus TV/DVD in both bedrooms.

'The Byre' has a delightful open plan kitchen / dining room / lounge with a newly fitted kitchen, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, ceramic hob and oven. The lounge features under-floor heating, a log-burning fire, and a high definition LED backlit TV, with blu-ray/DVD home cinema, CD player and iPod dock. The master bedroom is furnished in oak, has its own TV/DVD player, and en-suite with shower. The second bedroom features twin beds, convertible to a 'super-king' double bed. This room also features its own TV/DVD player, and gives access to the master (jack-and-jill) bathroom

Further details outdoors

The Byre is situated in an elevated tranquil rural location overlooking open farmland. There is a large terrace, stretching the length of the property with patio doors from both the master bedroom and the lounge. On the terrace is a luxury 6-person hot tub (from Coast Spas) providing perfect relaxation all year round. Private barbecue facilities and seating are also provided. The Byre is just a 200 metre walk from the Grand Western Canal nature reserve - superb for walking, cycling, fishing; hire boats are also available from Tiverton.

Further details

Normal changeover day is Friday, but this can be flexible outside of the peak season (May - August) and can also be flexible for late bookings subject to availability. Check in is usually 3.30pm; check out 10.00am

The Somerset region

The Byre is situated in the heart of the rural West Country on the Devon / Somerset border. The warmer climate provides for excellent local produce and the area is famous for some of its superb cider (why not visit one of our local cider farms to try the real thing!).

The delightful Grand Western Canal nature reserve / country park is right on our doorstep. This fascinating 12 mile canal is all that was built of a much more ambitious project (the intention being to link Taunton with Exeter and beyond). It is now a haven for wildlife, and fish and is an excellent location to start exploring the local area, on foot or by bike (the towpath is superb for children, being flat, and of course, completely free of motorised traffic)

Within easy reach are the sandy beaches of the south Devon coast, or the surfers paradise in north Devon (Croyde, Wollacombe and Saunton Sands are all top family favourites)

Just 30 minutes away are the open expanses of Exmoor, truly deserving its status as an area of outstanding natural beauty, with numerous opportunities for walking, cycling, horse riding or just enjoying nature at her best.


The nearest town to 'The Byre' is Wellington (8km), featuring convenient supermarkets, surrounded by local independent stores and excellent restaurants for all the family. Taunton (the county town) famous for cider, cricket, and much more is just 17km away and features more extensive shopping and entertainment, including multi-screen cinemas, bowling etc.

There are numerous attractions for family days out. Children will love 'Diggerland', 'Wookey Hole', 'Woodlands', 'Tropiquaria', and 'Crealy' adventure park - but there are many others. The Fleet Air Arm museum near Yeovil is also an excellent family day out.
