    “6 of us (plus a dog) had a lovely time.”

    Inside very comfortable, spacious and friendly - dog loved running around the enclosed garden. Just a few minutes drive from Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge, Wells…… positioning couldn’t be much better. Great week had by all.

The property

Wells 6.5 miles.

A stone-built barn conversion set on a working farm resting in the rural village of Priddy in the heart of the Mendips, Dale Barton is a four bedroom cottage offering a family of eight the perfect spot from which to explore this Somerset location.

Enjoy walking through the landscape from your doorstep, visiting the many nearby attractions including Cheddar Gorge, and returning to the homely comfort of Dale Barton.

Discover a lofty and spacious open-plan living and dining room where you can relax on the sofas as the conversation flows with some wine, before taking your seats at the dining table to enjoy a family meal, with the warmth from the woodburning stove set in the large stone fireplace filling the room.

Prepare your meals in the contemporary kitchen, complete with all you need for a self-catered stay, with an induction hob, electric oven and a dishwasher among the appliances, with a handy cloakroom off the kitchen too.

Begin your day with a fresh breakfast and morning coffee out in the garden, with a picnic bench here to sit at and the benefit of an enclosed space so it's child and pet friendly.

One of the four excellent bedrooms rests on the ground floor, with some steps still to access this king-size bedroom and the adjacent ground-floor shower room, it offers an easier layout for those less mobile.

Head upstairs to the first floor to find the remaining bedrooms, including a king-size with an en-suite shower room, a lovely twin bedroom and a fabulous king-size, to served by a gleaming family bathroom complete with a bath and overhead shower.

The village of Priddy is surrounded by beautiful scenery and is home to a local pub, The Queen Victoria Inn.

Home to the Bishops of Bath & Wells for over 800 years is Wells Bishop's Palace and Gardens, uniquely moated with a drawbridge and resident swans, it's a picturesque setting to enjoy, whilst you can learn about the techniques of modern cavers and the the geology of the area in Wells and Mendip Museum.

Head over to the incredible Cheddar Gorge and Caves, purchase an Explorer ticket and see all eight excellent attractions, including the cathedral-like Gough's Cave and Cox's Cave, views from the Lookout Tower and many more, with a Clifftop Gorge Walk to really experience the beauty of this natural landmark.

Search for the Witch of Wookey in the Wookey Hole Caves, enjoy a tour of The Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company, delight in a wine tasting at Wraxall Vineyard Tours, and visit the mythical Glastonbury Tor.
