Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
Wellington, Somerset, England
'The Byre' is our luxury holiday home, situated in rural tranquillity on the Somerset / Devon border - a perfect location to relax, or explore the surrounding area.

'The Byre' was newly converted from an old farm building in the latter part of 2010 - and has been let out from late 2010. Set in a rural location on the Somerset / Devon border, 'The Byre' is an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area or visiting the numerous attractions. It is situated just 200 metres from the Grand Western Canal nature reserve - with excellent walking, fishing and cycling along 12 miles of canal.

Further afield are the historic town of Wellington, the Blackdown Hills and of course the open expanses of Exmoor. The coasts of West Somerset, North Devon, and South Devon, each with their unique features, are also easily accessib...

We stayed at the Byre for a long weekend, myself, husband, 2 adult daughters and the dog. We had a lovely chilled out stay. Our days were spent walking the dog along the canal and back to chill in the hot tub. Our evenings were spent again chilling in the hot tub....wonderful. The Byre is well equipped, everything has been...
