The property

Bruton: 5 miles; Frome: 5 miles; Meadhaven is a beautiful, detached stone barn resting in an idyllic rural setting in the heart of the captivating Somerset countryside, a peaceful retreat sitting just five miles from the towns of Bruton and Frome.

Meadhaven, the original part of which dates back to the 1700s, has been thoughtfully renovated (in 2022) to create an immaculately-presented holiday cottage, equipped with all you need for a relaxed and comfortable holiday, and the perfect base from which to explore this beautiful area of the West Country.

As you enter Meadhaven, you’ll find a spacious kitchen/diner with large windows, creating a bright and sunny space to cook and share meals together - the kitchen should have everything you need to produce delicious food for your holiday party.

You can relax in the warm and welcoming living room, which includes a smart TV - or, on warmer days, the private gravel courtyard is the perfect place to dine alfresco.

Upstairs, Meadhaven has two beautiful bedrooms – one inviting and comfortable double room with a king size bed, and a delightful twin room - along with a new bathroom offering a bath, walk-in shower, sink and basin.

Meadhaven sits in a quiet part of the village of Wanstrow, which boasts a country pub (that serves food), a playing field and playground for any children in your party, as well as many options for countryside walks and woodland adventures.

A car is a must-have to make the most of your stay and enable you to explore all the area has to offer - away from the village, you are spoilt for choice for places to discover and explore.

Closest, we have Bruton, five miles south, which is home to the Hauser & Wirth Gallery with its beautiful Piet Oudolf-designed gardens, as well as an excellent farm shop and the Roth Bar & Grill, or spend the day exploring the extraordinary gardens at The Newt - its Garden Café is a magical place for lunch.

For a delicious meal, you’ll find At The Chapel and the Old Pharmacy restaurants to be lively spots in the heart of Bruton High Street, and if you fancy a real treat, then the Michelin starred Osip is perfect - if you want to head there for dinner, you’ll need to book well in advance.

Frome, five miles northeast, is a larger town with supermarkets and all the essential stores, but is also packed full of independent shops, bars and restaurants, with the paved, ancient thoroughfares of Cheap Street and Catherine Hill ideal for fans of arty gifts and homewares.

Every Saturday and Wednesday is market day in Frome, and the first Sunday of the month sees the whole town centre taken over by the Frome Independent Market – with incredible food, live music and a whole car park full of vintage wares, it’s an experience not be missed!

Under 20 minutes from Wanstrow, you’ll find both Stourhead, where you can explore the beautiful gardens and stroll around the lake – stunning in any month of the year - and the famous Longleat Safari Park, which is a fun-packed full day out for all the family.

From Meadhaven, you can also explore the market town of Shepton Mallet (7 miles) and its Bath and West Showground (check the line-up as events go on all year round), wander around the historic cathedral city of Wells (13 miles), soak up the view from the top of Glastonbury Tor (17 miles), wonder at the cliffs at Cheddar Gorge, or climb deep down into Wookey Hole Caves.

Or if shopping is your thing, the ever-popular Clarks Village outlet centre is just 18 miles away and the larger west country cities are under an hour by car - Bath is just 20 miles away and Bristol 25 miles.

Meadheaven offers a truly relaxing quiet rural break in a fantastic location surrounded by all that stunning Somerset has to offer.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

The town of Bruton is situated in the south-east corner of Somerset. Proud of its status as one of the smallest towns in England, Bruton is built in the valley of the River Brue and is situated between Frome, Gillingham and Wincanton, and Castle Cary is nearby. Renowned for its verdant countryside, Bruton also hosts an impressive high street, filled with a fantastic selection of shops, several pubs and restaurants where you can stock up on the essentials or treat your loved ones to a hearty meal. Nearby, make sure to visit Bruton Museum and Bruton Dovecote, a former watchtower with imposing views over the surrounding areas while Stourhead Gardens and House is an idyllic location to delight in a picnic. The major city of Bristol is also within easy reach by car or train (Bruton is on the Bristol Weymouth line), offering major attractions such as Bristol Aquarium, St Mary Redcliffe Church and Castle Park; likewise, Bath boasts The Roman Baths, Pulteney Bridge and The Circus. A lovely base for your Somerset getaway.
