Newly listed and fitted with modern comforts for people who enjoy the independence of self catering accommodation. The Barn is the ideal retreat for either a short break or holiday destination to enjoy the secrets of Somerset and to discover Dorset & East Devon.
Nestling within a conservation area of the tranquil village of Merriott in South Somerset, The Barn is a honey coloured Ham Stone conversion, offering a lovely, spacious holiday home for up to 4 people. It is perfectly located for exploring the world heritage coastline as well as an abundance of sights and attractions further inland. The Barn is a 2 minute walk from the dog-friendly Kings Head pub which serves cask ales, ciders and great food (inc. Takeaway option).
Enter straight into the well equipped, light & spacious kitchen/diner. Facilities include dishwasher, washing machine/tumble dryer, fridge freezer, microwave, slow cooker, electric hob & eye level oven & grill. The ground floor double bedroom with skylight is furnished with shaker style built in wardrobes and a brass double bed. Situated next to the bedroom is the bathroom with a large shower cubicle, wash basin and toilet. The living area has two comfortable sofas; there is also a large SMART T.V. including Netflix, a well stocked bookcase and games / jigsaws to entertain you. The beamed mezzanine bedroom, overlooking the bright and airy living area below is accessed via the (steep) staircase. The King size zip-lock bed can be separated to provide 2 x 2ft 6in single beds. There is also a garment rail with shelf compartments.
Outside is a small patio area with bistro table and chairs for you to enjoy a glass of wine on a summers evening. The Barn also provides free WiFi. All towels (excluding beach towels) and linen are provided. There is also a hair dryer, iron and ironing board for your use. Heating and electricity are included within the quoted price.
The Barn is ideally suited to people with restricted mobility as it can be used as one level accommodation. There is a grab handle in the shower and also outside to aid the one step down to the patio area – please contact the owners with any queries.
Dogs are very welcome at The Barn and there are some lovely walks right here in Merriott and the surrounding area. There are plenty of places locally to visit and eat where dogs are also welcome. We donate half of all charges for dogs to Ferne Animal Sanctuary. Please note that dogs must be kept on leads at all times when outside the barn & the immediate area as there are poultry and livestock nearby.
The Barn has off-road parking for one car.
Strictly no stag or hen parties. The mezzanine bedroom is not suitable for children under 10. Changeover day is normally Friday and there is a minimum stay of 3 nights when requesting a booking at most times.
