Stable Loft

  • 5 of 5

A well equipped cottage in a working stables. There is plenty of space within the cottage with a fantastic view of the arena. Both our children had the opportunity to take riding lessons, which they thoroughly enjoyed. The location is ideal with a number of family attractions and stunning landscapes within an easy drive. Highly recommended.

From the Owner

This small corner of Somerset is perfect in our eyes. Nestled into the foothills of the Mendips and with views of Shipham village over the fields, it feels cosy and rural at the same time. It's lovely to be able to take the 10 minute walk along the track into the village to buy a paper or fresh bread at Hansfords shop, and yet if you crave the bright lights , Weston super Mare is only a 20 min drive or Bristol a mere half hour . The best of both worlds. If you venture uphill on foot or horseback ( recommended) you pass through Rowberrow forest where you are likely to see deer and arrive onto Blackdown, a wide expanse of open moorland and home to herds of Exmoor ponies and cattle which graze freely. From Beacon Batch, the highest point on Mendip you get panoramic views of Somerset , over the levels to Glastonbury Tor in the distance.
