Overview

About the property

Barn Conversion in Over Stowey, Bridgwater, Somerset, England, UK - Peaceful, Rural Location Within Minutes Of The Quantock Hills And The West Somerset Coast

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.

Spacious, light, airy, well equipped.

Beautiful surroundings. A comfortable home feel. So much room. We've enjoyed everyday doing Somerset's coast and country and making our way back to the granary. Certainly a thumbs up.

Lovely relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed for a couple of days but had a great, relaxing break. Roy and Vivienne were very helpful.

Great location for short trips to the seaside, and a very friendly horse! Thank you

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing get away, with beautiful walks plus gorgeous views. The granary was welcoming, warm and cosy. I would recommend the granary to all of my friends! If you after a quiet location with walks close by, then look no further.

Peace and tranquility!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in The Granary on Pear Tree Farm. Roy and Vivienne are great. The property is wonderfully situated on a quiet road. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Very comfortable bed and furnishings. Lovely private patio overlooking the country side and the horses. Made some of our own meals in the well equipped kitchen. Recommend the Cottage Inn for Sunday roast!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay here, nice quiet location but still easy to walk, cycle or drive to local village and pubs etc. Roy and Vivienne Osborne let you enjoy your holiday but are there if you need them. Enjoyed saying hello to their two horses each day and waking up to birdsong each morning. Recommend the Lamb Pub in Spaxton.
