'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...'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.

About the neighborhood
The nearest town to 'The Byre' is Wellington (8km), featuring convenient supermarkets, surrounded by local independent stores and excellent restaurants for all the family. Taunton (the county town) famous for cider, cricket, and much more is just 17km away and features more extensive shopping and entertainment, including multi-screen cinemas, bowling etc. There are numerous attractions for family days out. Children will love 'Diggerland', 'Wookey Hole', 'Woodlands', 'Tropiquaria', and 'Crealy' adventure park - but there are many others. The Fleet Air Arm museum near Yeovil is also an excellent family day out.
