The property

Resting in a stunning part of rural North Somerset, Little Barton provided the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of the modern world.

Located in the grounds (to which you have full access) of the owners' home, the cottage commands panoramic views of the surrounding glorious countryside.

Adjoining the owners' home, the cottage is situated all on one level.

Enter into the inviting lounge / dining room, where you will either be able to curl up with a good book, or take time and relax over a lovingly prepared meal in the adjoining, well equipped galley kitchen.

All the while taking in the sunning views afforded by its lovely location.

From the living room step into the adjoining bedroom, complete with en-suite shower room, where the only thing that might keep you awake is the abundant wildlife.

From the cottage take the opportunity to enjoy the extensive grounds: a morning coffee outside the cottage?

a glass of wine on the elevated deck in the evening?

Or perhaps a picnic in the secluded dell, on the banks of the Doniford Stream that runs through the grounds.

For the railfans among you, there is the added bonus that the cottage lies beside the track of the West Somerset Railway, and you will be able to see the historic steam locomotives trundling by as they make their way along the 20 mile stretch of track between Bishop's Lideard and Minehead (don't worry about your sleep being disturbed - they don't run before 10.00 or after 5.00). If you can tear yourself away from your rural bolthole, travel to the nearby village of Stogumber, an idyllic spot with thatched cottages, a village shop and a pub, serving a great dining menu.

Alternatively, you could travel in the other direction to The Carew Arms in Crowcombe for a delicious meal.

Keen walkers can look forward to exploring the Quantock Hills AONB and Exmoor National Park, slightly further afield, or if you are visiting during the summer months, travel to Minehead or Watchet (which is only 4 miles away) for a day at the beach.

With so much to see and do, secure your stay at Little Barton for that well deserved break.
