Bull Pen Barn in Bath , Somerset

Bull Pen Barn Self-Catering

Between the stone walls, A-frame timber beams and double-height ceilings, it should come as no surprise that this rustic bolthole used to be a barn. It's actually situated on a working farm, where animals like chickens, donkeys, goats and the owner's dogs all roam, so if a rural retreat is what you're after, this will do nicely. The open-plan layout is roomy and bright, so you'll have more than enough room to spread out. On sunny days, open the bi-fold doors and enjoy the fresh country air as it wafts through the living area, or step out into the courtyard and for an alfresco afternoon tea. Underfloor heating will keep chilly toes at bay while you're rustling up dinner in the kitchen – a bonus for the winter months – while the wet-room style bathroom has a sleek rainfall shower. Make sure to pack comfortable shoes, as there are walking trails aplenty. You're more than welcome to collect fresh eggs for breakfast, swim in the freshwater pond or sign up for an on-site art class – or speak to the host about arranging special experiences, like private chefs and at-home massages. Dyrham Park is right down the street, there's a rumoured Saxon king's burial site behind the farm and both a cafe and pub are within walking distance. It's an excellent spot for a countryside getaway, but if you crave a bit more pace, Bath is only a thirty-minute drive away.

Home truths:
*There’s a private entrance, but the grounds are shared with the owner and another holiday barn
*This home is ideal for those with limited mobility – there's one step from the parking area onto the patio, but a ramp can be provided
*This is a working farm with heavy machinery, so take care and bring appropriate footwear – it can get muddy
*Please ask the farm manager before exploring the woodland, collecting eggs or visiting the animals
*The owner has four dogs – they’re very friendly, but it won’t be a good fit if you’re allergic
*A travel cot and high chair can be provided on request, but you'll need to bring your own cot linen
*You’ll need a car to explore further afield – there’s parking on-site
*There’s no door to the bathroom
