Stoke Trister, Somerset Cottages
Wake up to a view that will simply take your breath away! Located in the rolling Somerset countryside, Trister Studio is a gorgeous, romantic bolt hole that offers a 'proper' escape from the hustle and bustle. Detached and away from the owners' home this wood clad barn conversion is a sweet, simple and comfortable home from home, which the owners have revived and improved into a very pretty country hideaway. From your elevated position you can delight in the fine views over Blackmore Vale and once you've donned your walking boots (and with your dog if you have one!) you can head into the surrounding countryside for some truly memorable walks. Inside your accommodation is an open plan space, furnished attractively, and though compact, it is just perfect for peace, tranquility and relaxation. Outside are large gardens which you can roam around in and where you will hardly see another soul!
The Studio offers a comfortable and stylish 'hideaway' in very attractive surroundings, perfect for a brief escape, or longer, to an interesting area. Although situated in the grounds of a larger house, it is far enough away to ensure complete privacy for its guests. Absolute bliss!

The Studio is situated at the top end of the tiny hamlet of Stoke Trister a delightfully 'quirky' retreat enjoying fine far-reaching views over the Blackmore Vale. Visitors may prefer just to relax on the balcony or enjoy the interesting local walks but the peaceful, rural nature of the place belies the easy access to the multitude of attractions in the surrounding area.
The world-famous, landscaped gardens at Stourhead and the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury are both within 15 minutes' drive, while the cathedral city of Salisbury, Stonehenge, Longleat, Georgian Bath and Sherborne, with its abundance of medieval buildings, abbey and castles, are all reachable in an hour or less.

"We have had 7 amazing nights at The Studio. Beautiful location, cosy and comfortable. Accommodation was everything we needed and we would recommend to family and friends as a perfect relaxing retreat. Beautiful views, welcoming host and thank you for our lovely tray of goodies. The only downside was that it wasn't long enough! We cannot wait to come back."Carla and Anthony 2018-07-09
