Property code: 85378

This beautifully designed Dutch barn conversion sits within the owner’s 9 acres of land, with stunning countryside views. It’s a great option for families wanting to explore Somerset’s countryside and nearby coasts.

Book a group stay in scenic Somerset and head to this gorgeous converted barn on the outskirts of the charming village of North Curry. The impressive, Dutch-style property sleeps up to eight guests and also welcomes up to five very happy hounds. The four-bedroom property, which sits within nine-acre grounds where the owners also live, has its own enclosed garden and captures magnificent rural views. It is well-located for trips into Taunton, 7 miles away, and into the Quantock Hills and Blackdown Hills, areas of outstanding natural beauty.

Open the door on to this enticing holiday home and find yourselves in the welcoming reception hall. From here, wander on through into the inviting lounge, where you can all settle on the comfortable seating to watch a movie on the Smart TV. Stoke up the wood burner in here on chilly winter days or open the French doors when it is warm. Read your book for a while perhaps and simply take in the glorious views. Head on through to the bright kitchen/diner to make everyone a cup of tea and to start preparing the dinner. Chat to friends and family who are sitting up at the breakfast bar and ask someone to set the table by the window, ready for a lively, holiday meal together. There is also a cloakroom, with WC, and a utility room downstairs. Make your way up to the floor above to find the family bathroom and two king-sized bedrooms, one with a vaulted ceiling, en-suite shower room and its own Smart TV, and the other with an en-suite shower room. There is also a double bedroom and a twin. Pull open the doors on to the garden during warmer weather and sit outside in the serenity: light the BBQ, dine out in the fresh air and lose yourselves in the magical, Somerset views. You may be able to arrange to use the owners’ tennis courts during your stay. Find plenty of parking at the barn.

We loved our stay at The Dutch Barn! The house itself is gorgeous, the hot tub a fantastic addition - especially for a cold & wet January weekend! We really enjoyed the location as well, loved being surrounded by countryside, but close enough to so many places of interest. And Jim, the owner, is always on hand for any help or questions.

Tucked away yet a stones throw from the local village. With a newly finished refurb the barn felt spacious and clean, well equipped kitchen and a nice outdoor area for the dogs to roam. Lovely spot and a great holiday home, can highly recommend
