Accommodation Description

· Kid-friendly · Pets allowed

Based in the glorious countryside of Somerset in the southwest of England, this 17th-century old stables house is located near the town of Castle Cary not far from near Glastonbury next to a working farm of cattle. It provides guests with a secluded and serene location for a unique glamping getaway. The stables were converted in 2002 and every effort was made to preserve the original structure of exposed wooden beams while the holiday rental is well-equipped with modern amenities.

The stables can sleep up to seven guests with a spacious master bedroom on the ground floor that showcases a gorgeous, king-size four-poster bed complete with cozy linens while the upstairs comes with a double bedroom and a third bedroom with three single beds. Guests can hang out in the living area after a day of activities on soft seating as the chef on cooking duty prepares a home-cooked meal in the fully-equipped kitchen that includes an oven, a stove, a toaster, and a refrigerator. Mealtimes can be enjoyed at the dining table for eight or outside on the patio when the summer sun is out. There is a bathroom on the upper floor where guests will find a shower, a toilet, and a hand basin.

The holiday rental is perfect for those who yearn for adventure and want to experience something different than the typical getaways. Read More
