Castle Cary Barn Rental Photos and Description

Beautifully converted, listed properties surrounded by countryside.

Two fascinating Grade II listed historic buildings. A lovely 15th century Ancient Barn and a 17th century Old Stables are part of a medieval farmstead. They sleep up to 5 and 7 respectively with the option of renting a medieval Bee House with two additional beds. They offer original features (old woodwork, beams and flagstones) with every modern comfort. They are in pretty, unspoilt countryside close to the delightful old market town of Castle Cary with its interesting independent shops and pubs. Market day is Tuesday. There are numerous places to visit, including Glastonbury (Abbey and Tor), Cadbury Camp (King Arthur's Camelot), historic houses and gardens, while the fascinating cities of Wells, Bath and Salisbury are also within easy reach. There are many places to interest children too - such as Wookey Hole Caves and Longleat theme and safari park.

The accommodation: : The Ancient Barn, The Old Stables and the Bee House are situated between an old farmhouse and a small working farmyard (cattle and sheep) so there may be some normal farming activity at certain times of year. Our guests have never found this to be a problem but if you do not enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of a farmyard then this is not the place for you! All three buildings are comfortable at all seasons - warm in winter, cool in summer, and provide an ideal base for touring this fascinating part of the west of England.

A car is essential. We ask our guests only to smoke out of doors.

We keep free range chickens which children are welcome to visit and to feed. We sell eggs and seasonal veg.

Throughout the year... : Somerset has lots to offer: historic sites such as Glastonbury Tor and Cadbury Camp (also known as Camelot - a hill fort made famous by King Arthur), ruined Castles and Abbeys, delightful country pubs offering delicious meals made from local produce, National Trust houses and famous gardens. For those who enjoy shopping there are numerous antique and craft shops in the area and Clarks Shopping Village is a short drive away at Street. This is a very special place in an area of England that as yet has hardly been touched by tourism. The countryside is pretty, the pace of life is gentle and the local people are friendly and helpful. Many of our guests return again and again to this lovely part of the world.

'The best click of a mouse button I've ever done!' 'We were absolutely delighted to find a place for once, which is far more than its blurb claims.' 'What a lovely surprise. Clean, warm and not spooky!' 'A wonderfully warm and romantic stay - only wish we could stay longer.' 'We'll be back.' 'As an American I can say that your barn has been my favorite accommodation in all 6 years I have lived in this country. We wouldn't change or add anything - comfortable beds, excellent shower, well lit, books and it's great to have a dishwasher. I'm going to be sorry to leave.'

Castle Cary is in South-East Somerset and the properties are in the countryside next to a small working farm yet less than two miles from town. There is a main line railway station at Castle Cary with fast trains to London. The area is very pretty and almost untouched by tourism.

Golf: There is an 18 hole public golf course at Wheathill - about a 10 minute drive away and another at Yeovil - about a 20 minute drive away.
