In the heart of the magical Somerset countryside, with some stunning views, Mowbarton Barn is ideal either for a holiday or a short break. Many of our guests return, some have now been three times in as many years. There is masses to see and do in the area, but often visitors prefer to stay in the spacious comfort of 'home’: a charming stone-built former barn with a lovely sheltered walled garden that is completely private.

Mowbarton Barn is becoming more and more popular for significant birthday celebrations and family get-togethers. Despite being surrounded by peaceful fields, it's surprisingly central for reunions. Not for nothing was Somerset once known as the heart of England.

And there's always plenty going on in the area: Glastonbury is around 30 minutes' drive but there are also plenty of other local festivals. Wedmore Arts Festival, the Real Ale Festival, Yeovilton Air Day, Wells Literary Festival. Plus of course Carnival fortnight in November. Some of these dates book up early, so it's worth checking them out in good time. Too late for Wassailing at Roger Wilkins this year - but you can still enjoy his world-famous cider barn when you visit. It's just a ten minute walk away.

The Barn is two miles from the delightful village of Wedmore (pubs, restaurants, butcher/farm shop, deli, chemist, gift shops, boutiques, hairdressers, beauticians, golf course) and a short drive from Wells with its beautiful Cathedral and Bishop's Palace, Glastonbury, Cheddar, Wookey and a number of nature reserves. The coast is just ten miles away; you can see it on a clear day. … In fact – all you could want is right on your doorstep.

Mowbarton Barn has something for everyone - families, family reunions, ramblers, cyclists (just off Route 33), historians, nature-lovers, bird-watchers, cheese connoisseurs, cider drinkers. Mowbarton Barn also makes a perfect venue for a book club get-away, a bridge weekend, a yoga retreat, a Pilates group. We have a separate 'Milking Parlour' which is available for larger group events or gatherings although most people find the Barn itself is easily enough.

Whatever your preference, this spacious, stone-built barn conversion makes a wonderful home from home. Set in its own secluded walled garden (a sun trap that also offers cool shade in the green, vine-covered corners), the Barn sleeps eight, even nine, in comfort. It has a large farmhouse kitchen with a big table for convivial dining, two separate, oak-beamed sitting rooms, one with log-burning stove, a study (with single sofa bed) and a magnificent sun room which leads onto the terrace and walled garden, ideal for barbecues.

Very large family groups will be delighted to hear that we now have our own Shepherd's Hut across the lane. It sleeps two in fully fitted luxury and provides a secluded and romantic getaway with wonderful views - either for an extra pair in the Barn party, or for couples holidaying alone. A Shepherd's Hut voucher makes a perfect gift at any time.

Mowbarton Barn was fully refurbished in 2013 to make it welcoming, cosy and comfortable. In the well-equipped kitchen there is a double sized range cooker as well as a microwave, dishwasher and large fridge/freezer.

Our bedrooms are named in honour of Mowbarton's past. There are two double-bedded rooms(Hayloft and The Byre); Hayloft has a king-sized bed and an en suite bathroom, The Byre shares the family bathroom and looks out at the former dairy. Then there's a double with linked beds and en suite shower room(we call this room Tractor Shed), and a fourth bedroom with bunk beds. The large family bathroom (with separate shower) enjoys sensational views. There is also a downstairs cloakroom plus a useful utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer. Steps from the garden and between some rooms on the ground floor make it less suitable for wheelchair users or those with limited mobility. Safety gates are supplied if required for toddlers - for temporary installation by guests themselves.

Outside is a very pretty walled garden with barbecue area, terrace and a small lawn. There is also plenty of storage for bikes and parking area for up to six cars.
Bed linen and towels are provided; electricity and oil central heating is included. Free Wi-Fi. The Barn has had solar panels installed in 2015, so we are proud of our eco credentials.

Home from |Home at Christmas time!

By Kathy on 09-Jan-2017

Date of Stay 20 Dec 2016 Helpful votes: 0/0 This was our second Christmas at Mowbarton Barn and it was lovely! The owners are welcoming and helpful and good neighbours. The house itself lends itself to our friends and family needs. The 3 bathrooms upstairs is a huge plus, the rooms are well furnished and comfortable. Having 2 living rooms - one with a tv and one without is a plus - Granny gets to watch her soaps and we don't. The kitchen is very well equipped and with 2 ovens and a grill it is easy to cook for crowds. The table seats 10 of us for special occasions and it's a pleasant space. The utility room is cool so we keep the veg down there, the laundry facilities are VERY handy as we rotate guests in and out and keep washing the sheets! The owner puts a tree up for us each Christmas. It's welcoming, it's comfortable and we are going back again for Christmas of 2017! That says it all. We highly recommend it for families at any time of year. Must be glorious in the summer! Oh - and in winter we go to the RSPB site at Ham Wall and watch the 750,000 starlings come to roost in the reed beds. Excellent!!

Perfect family Getaway

By Debbie P on 22-Nov-2016

Another superb stay at Mowbarton Barn, this time with the extended family. The weather did its worst, but this just made the barn feel even cosier-we could have stayed in all day! I can't recommend this place enough-from the welcome cheese and chutney, to the comfy beds, to the idyllic setting, I guarantee you won't be disappointed. Total relaxation. We will be back soon!
