The late 19th century barn (with its red tiled roof) lies about 1 mile from Evercreech, on the outskirts of the farming hamlet of Stoney Stratton. The area is very rural, predominantly dairy farming, with rolling hills and rich pasture all around. There are many local footpaths and lovely walks can be managed right from the doorstep.
Wells,Glastonbury and The Bath and West showground are close by, while Bristol, Bath, Longleat, Stourhead are all within a forty minutes drive.
The barn was converted 15 years ago retaining much of its original character, while providing a high standard of comfort. It sleeps four plus a cot and suits families or couples wanting to explore Somerset or enjoy the peace of the countryside

Stoney Stratton is in the middle of a fertile farming area, near the foot of the Mendip Hills. There are many lovely walks to tackle and hills to climb.
The Celts and Romans knew the value of the local area and wool wealth followed in the middle ages. Scattered hill forts, Roman remains and lovely mediaeval churches with famous Somerset towers all speak of the rich history.
Red Tiles is within easy reach of many good attractions. The Royal Bath and West Showground, home to one of the largest agricultural shows in the country as well as numerous other events is less than two miles away.
Longleat Safari Park and Attractions are less than half and hour away, as are Stourhead House and Gardens. Other National Trust properties close by are Montacute and Lytes Cary.
