Description from owner


Shortwood Barn is a contemporary barn conversion in the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The house itself is both extremely comfortable and has a superb finish - and as a very recent conversion it also benefits from the best of environmentally friendly features. It was shortlisted for a design and build award from Bath Council and also featured in March 2018 edition of Buildit magazine as a “wow factor conversion”

The ground floor is a great place to have fun as it is spacious, airy, open plan and with a high degree of comfort and all modern conveniences. There are multiple large glazed doors which offer easy access to both terrace and garden and the fields beyond. There is also a separate utility and downstairs toilet

The upstairs accommodation is relaxing, quiet and comfortable. It comprises 2 doubles, both with en-suite, and 2 twin rooms with a large family bathroom.

The master bedroom has a glazed balcony with uninterrupted views - a great place for an early evening glass of whatever you fancy. Drink in the views at the same time.

The Barn is an easy and delightful 5 minute walk to a great local pub, The Litton, and there are numerous walks to other neighbouring villages with good pubs

The Barn is wonderfully rural, yet within very easy reach of 3 great cities. Bath and Bristol are 12 miles away and Wells is 7. We benefit from a rich diversity of culture which also includes Glastonbury, Cheddar and Wookey Hole - all very conveniently located.

Very Good

“Perfect family accommodation!”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2018

What a wonderful place to stay! Shortwood Barn was perfect for our family of seven - very comfortable, well equipped and in a lovely quiet location. Within easy reach of Bath, Bristol and some superb countryside this is a great house with a contemporary feel. Justin and Sarah have thought of everything and were very accommodating - thanks to them both. We would love to revisit!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much, it was lovely having you all here. Glad to know you made the most of the area in your short stay. You were super guests and we would love to have you back again. Sarah
