The Barn


In a secluded and peaceful position on the fringes of the Quantock Hills, the cottages at Meadowsweet Farm offer a delightful base for a Somerset holiday. The 18th century Mill and 15th century Dairy are award winning conversions, whilst the handsome Barn has also been pleasingly converted by the same architect. The Mill (ref: E1787) lies next to the millstream across the cobbles from the farmhouse, it retains many original features - ancient timbers, shutters and grinding stones, all sympathetically incorporated into a delightful cottage of great charm. The Dairy (ref: E1788) is a pretty cottage nestling under its thatch and adjoins the owners’ 15th century farmhouse. Set within 30 acres of meadows and woodland, they all offer individual, attractive and very comfortable accommodation only 9 miles from the beach at Blue Anchor. Hens wander freely in the farmyard and from the meadows there are picturesque views of the West Somerset Steam Railway.
This is superb walking, riding and mountain biking country, within easy reach of the glories of Exmoor National Park including Watersmeet, a wooded gorge with beautiful walks, where the East Lyn river meets Hoaroak Water; the famous resorts of Lynton and Lynmouth, linked by a unique cliff railway; the remarkable limestone pinnacles and cliff drops at Valley of the Rocks; the quaint village of Porlock and waterfront at Polock Weir; Dunster Castle; and Dunkery Hill, the highest point on the moor. Taunton and the resort of Minehead are both about 13 miles distant. A shop and pub serving food are under 1 mile away in the pretty village of Bicknoller, from where steep paths lead to stunning views from the ridge.

Whether you are travelling as a couple or a large family visit Meadowsweet Farm very soon. The location is excellent and the accommodation is perfect - a real home from home. It is a great base to visit many of the delights of Exmoor and the local area has a great variety of beaches, walks, a steam train, great tea shops, stunning views and Gary & Jackie are great.

With its lovely beaches beautiful countryside and fascinating history, dating back to the times of the Ancient Britons, Somerset makes a wonderful cottage holiday destination. And the best way to experience the county’s many attractions is from your base in one of our holiday cottages in Somerset. Bath has some of Britain’s most majestic Georgian architecture, as well as the famous Roman Baths (not mention great shopping). Then there’s Wells, England’s smallest city. Wandering around the cathedral close, with its unspoilt medieval lanes is like taking a step back in time. And for a real sense of mystery, there’s Glastonbury (home of the world-famous music festival), supposedly the site of King Arthur’s mythical Avalon. All await you on one of our Somerset cottage holidays. The county has more than its fair share of beach resorts too. The Grand Pier at Weston-Super-Mare is superb, as is the wide beach here, while Minehead and Burnham-on-Sea offer a choice of traditional seaside pleasures. Meanwhile, for nature lovers there’s the wild landscape of Exmoor, and the Mendip and Quantock Hills, both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cheddar Gorge is truly stunning. Great for real Cheddar cheese too!
