The Haybarn at Pennard Farm
Admire walls of ancient exposed brick and alluringly ambient farmhouse doors as you relax and unwind with a dip in the indoor pool. (Yes, we said pool.) A handsome hideaway, the Hayloft is a Victorian barn conversion with buckets of character and exclusive access to a generously sized swimming pool.
Allowing you to escape the strains and stresses of everyday life, the Haybarn is a unique retreat devotedly designed for two to enjoy, with the option of bringing along little ones and your four-legged friend. Retaining many of its original features and sympathetically styled with traditional taste, it fuses lavish luxury with home comforts.
Floors of red quarry tile and old oak give the Haybarn a rural, romantic and rustic feel with plush, comfortable cushioning offering stunning spaces to sit with a riveting read. A fully-equipped kitchen and dining area also ensures that you can simply stock up on supplies and hole up for the duration of your stay. Upstairs, there is a king-size bedroom and elegant ensuite with bath.
Positioned across a courtyard from the main farmhouse, the Hayloft enjoys close proximity to the shared indoor pool and stunning scenery of the surrounding farm fields. With private parking and a small grassy area to yourselves, you’ll be able to embark on wonderful walks right from the doorstep.
Located in an idyllic spot in the carefree county of Somerset, The Haybarn sits on Pennard Hill Farm, a working sheep farm with unbeatable views of its scenic surroundings and the Mendip Hills. Get to know the quirks of Glastonbury and its many myths, visit the small city of Wells with its stunning cathedral, or escape to the coast in search of flavoursome fish and chips.
Perfectly placed for a day trip to Bath, you could also explore the Cranborne Chase AONB (Area of Natural Beauty) or even head down into Dorset to discover the Jurassic Coast.
As far as eateries go, the traditional market town of Shepton Mallet is a mere few miles away and is bursting with flavoursome fare. The Natterjack, Blostin’s and Poachers Pocket all receive rave reviews, but if you’re looking for somewhere within easy walking distance, The Red Lion in West Pennard is only an amble away along characterful country lanes, serving a selection of gastro dishes and pub classics.
Also conveniently close by, the Avalon Vineyard produces organic wines and ciders, inviting keen sommeliers and occasional drinkers alike for tours and tastings.
