    “We had a very enjoyable week at ‘The Winning Post’.”

    The cottage was modern, clean and comfortable, and in a lovely country setting. We were a party of three adults which was fine, but I think suitability for up to six is mentioned in the description, which would be a bit tight. Alan and Gill.

The property

The Winning Post is one of three gorgeous barn conversions resting in Greenscombe’s countryside in Somerset.

With a secure driveway, coordinated décor and three bathrooms, this holiday home is ideal for a multigenerational family, couples, or friends.

As you arrive, make your way up the gravel driveway, and admire the views before making your way into the home.

An open-plan living space greets you, where you can find a sofa bed for an additional two guests and a place to rest after a day of walking.

Here, there is also a fully equipped kitchen with Quartz worktops and a dining area for four, perfect for cooking up tasty meals and dining while you plan a day out.

Completing the ground floor is a wet room, handy for those with limited mobility, while upstairs there is a bathroom, for an indulgent soak.

Continuing upstairs is a king-size bedroom with an en-suite, and a twin with a zip and link feature and a TV to keep the little ones entertained; both of which have access to the balcony so you can rest your head and wake up to delightful views.

You can also take advantage of the private patio area for alfresco dining or make use of the communal lawn space where your four-legged friends can stretch their legs.

Experience all of this, and more, at The Winning Post.

Note: This property can be booked with Reference 1128359, together sleeping up to 12 guests.

With shows throughout the year including The Royal Bath and West Show, The Dairy Show and NASS festival, The Bath and West Showground is well worth visiting while for shopping and dining, you can head to Clarks Outlet Shopping Village. For the adventurous ones in your group, Wookey Hole Caves and Attractions makes an exciting day out, as well as Haynes Motor Museum which also has go-karting!
