Property Type: 
Beautiful country house sleeping 18 for weddings, celebrations, conferences or family gatherings, near Bristol

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Barley Wood House, Wrington, Somerset, sleeps 9-18 in 9 bedrooms.

Barley Wood has 9 stunning bedrooms with 5 bathrooms, all with free standing roll top baths, and 3 toilets on the ground floor. Views across the Mendips are visible from most rooms and from the large terrace area outside. The grounds are 11 acres in total including the woodland with formal lawns, a pond, outside seating and plenty of parking.

Barley Wood history is part of its charm - built in 1801 for the social reformer Hannah More, later owned by The Wills family who were well known for their tobacco business and then later in the 80's a rehabilitation centre opened by the late Princess Diana. Now owned by the YMCA Dulverton group, the house has been lovingly restored back to its former glory with many original features remaining.

There are 2 large function rooms suitable for group dining and a kitchen for preparing meals. An open plan living area has an open fire, piano and chesterfield sofas.

We host lots of weddings, conferences and functions and therefore have enough tables and chairs for your dining requirements as well as a well equipped domestic kitchen.

There is a barbecue available and fire pit.

We can recommend great local caterers if you would like to have a formal meal, buffet or breakfast chef.

Our House is a "home from home" for you and your family to enjoy.
