The Granary is a delightful detached south facing barn conversion with fabulous views situated in Over Stowey in the foothills of the Quantocks - an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the first designated in the UK. The Granary offers exceptional, spacious self catering accommodation for two, having just undergone a recent refurbishment. It is an ideal base for exploring this beautiful area with its free roaming herds of wild red deer and Quantock ponies. Ideal for walkers, the recently designated Coleridge Way starts from the National Trust owned Coleridge Cottage in the neighbouring village of Nether Stowey. For cyclists, the Quantocks have miles of cycling trails and here at the Granary we can offer plenty of storage for biking equipment. For birdwatchers and walkers alike, we are within 15 minutes' drive of the stunning new Steart Marshes reserve, run by the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust.

About Roy and Vivienne Osborne
We grew up in Bath and Oxford and spent our working lives in different overseas locations. After retirement we settled in this beautiful part of Somerset and enjoy the outdoor life, wildlife conservation, walking and cycling. Roy speaks French and Spanish.
Roy and Vivienne Osborne purchased this Barn in 2010
Why Roy and Vivienne Osborne chose Over Stowey
We loved this property when we first saw it in 2009. We wanted to move to Somerset on retirement and The Quantock Hills and surrounding areas offered just what we were looking for. We have loved being part of such a friendly and welcoming community.
What makes this Barn unique
The property is spacious and secluded with excellent parking facilities and open views towards the nearby Quantock Hills. The patio/terrace is south facing and ideal for eating outside. Many of our visitors would like to move in permanently!

Wonderful place, very welcoming owners!
Lovely cottage and area too
Great place to get away from it all. But positioned with plenty to do both on your doorstep and in the outlying area. Nice pubs and food nearby and a good butcher in town. Hosts were great v helpful for any Q's. We didn't need lots of Internet so not a problem to us but poor wifi signal if you do !
The Granary is situated in a rural location so the internet signal can be much slower than in urban areas. However, we do ask guests to let us know if they are having trouble accessing the wifi as a simple reboot solves the problem.
Excellent home and hosts
