Rainsbury House, Upton, Exmoor, Somerset, sleeps 13 in 7 bedrooms.

Sleeps 5 to 13 in 2 cottages

The Barn sleeps 8 (+ cot)
Barn Owl Cottage sleeps 5 (+ cot)

The Cottage is linked internally to The Barn. The properties work well as a single unit or as 2 separate properties.

We have spent 18 months refurbishing and renovating two stunning barns to the high standard of luxury and comfort we would expect going on holiday. This includes 5 lovely new bathrooms and 2 new kitchens. We also installed a large eco-friendly biomass boiler which delivers heat to all our properties. We look out on hills and valleys of woodland and pasture. Truly a little piece of heaven!

The Barn has two doubles with en suites, and a superking/zip link twin and a twin which share a substantial family bathroom. All the bedrooms are beautifully appointed. The huge sitting room has 3 large leather sofas and a log burner (glorious in colder months) and 2 large double doors leading to a big private garden (great for outdoor dining in the summer). The spacious kitchen is new with granite worktops, cooker & ceramic hob and fridge freezer. Kitchen table seats 8, or a maximum of 12 if moved into the sitting room. In the utility is a dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and separate lavatory.

The cottage has a substantial open plan kitchen, dining and living area. The new kitchen has granite worktops, oven & ceramic hob as well as a fridge, freezer and dishwasher. Also a washing machine and access to a tumble dryer.

We nestle in a tranquil, wildlife-filled, corner of Wimbleball Lake, ideal for guests who enjoy walking and seclusion. Also wonderful for flyfishing. At the opposite end of the lake is the activity centre where guests can hire bikes, sailing and rowing boats, kayaks and wind surfers. There is also a high wire assault course, archery, and an indoor climbing wall as well as a packed programme of activity days for children and families.

We are just 12 miles from the stunning North Devon coast, with magical towns like Dunster and Porlock. We have 3 beautiful market towns within 6 miles of Rainsbury House: Dulverton, Bampton and Wiveliscombe. We are very well served for good local shops, pubs, restaurants and art galleries.
