Description of Beanacre Barn

Set in the beautiful Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), in Somerset, the Beanacre Barn, rated 4 Star and awarded their Gold Award by EnjoyEngland(Tourist Board), is an exceptionally spacious, open beamed barn which has been imaginatively converted and beautifully furnished by the present owners. Designed for 2 persons, with the added flexibility of the quality sofa-bed for short stay visitors, the Barn combines modern facilities and great comfort with a traditional style in a peaceful setting.

The Barn is located 4 miles north of Wells with its Cathedral and Bishop's Palace. Bath and Bristol are both 13 miles and there is a wealth of places of interest nearby. Places such as mystical Glastonbury Tor and ancient Abbey amid the Somerset Levels, towering Cheddar Gorge and its caves and many stunning National Trust properties all within 40 minutes drive.

The accommodation in the Beanacre Barn has been specially designed to provide modern comforts and convenience in a stylish traditional setting. The conversion of the Barn has incorporated many traditional design features such as the stable-door, exposed beams, oak framed wall, local craftsman-made doors & latches and the flagstones and old pine wood floors. The decor features original artwork and local artefacts.The Barn is bright and particularly spacious, centrally heated throughout and is fitted with modern double glazing. It has easy walking access.

The garden, which is exclusively for your use during your stay in the Beanacre Barn, is a particularly outstanding feature. We are keen gardeners and have developed it in a contemporary cottage garden style. There are climbing roses on the high walls and colourful planting in the wide borders. It is a beautiful peaceful place in which to unwind.

The Barn is located on the edge of the village with a view of the church and the hills beyond. The village pub is a short walk away! The high ground, lanes and ancient footpaths of the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) have so much to offer the ‘holiday explorer’. Please go to our website for much more information and many more images.
