Holiday Rental House
Shortwood Barn is a contemporary barn conversion in the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The house itself is both extremely comfortable and has a superb finish - and as a very recent conversion it also benefits from the best of environmentally friendly features. It was shortlisted for a design and build award from Bath Council and also featured in March 2018 edition of Buildit magazine as a “wow factor conversion” The ground floor is a great place to have fun as it is spacious, airy, open plan and with a high degree of comfort and all modern conveniences.

It comprises 2 doubles, both with en-suite, and 2 twin rooms with a large family bathroom. The master bedroom has a glazed balcony with uninterrupted views - a great place for an early evening glass of whatever you fancy. Drink in the views at the same time. The Barn is an easy and delightful 5 minute walk to a great local pub, The Litton, and there are numerous walks to other neighbouring villages with good pubs The Barn is wonderfully rural, yet within very easy reach of 3 great cities. Bath and Bristol are 12 miles away and Wells is 7. We benefit from a rich diversity of culture which also includes Glastonbury, Cheddar and Wookey Hole - all very conveniently located.More

Interaction with guests
One of us (Sarah or Justin) tries to be on hand to welcome guests to briefly explain how 'stuff' works and answer any questions that wasn't answered through their own site. There is also a dropbox with access to front door key. The code is shared shortly before arrival We live in the neighbouring property so are usually around to help in any way required. However, as this is a peaceful rural location we like to give our guests space to do their own thing and relax

About the neighbourhood
The Barn is wonderfully rural, yet within very easy reach of 3 great cities. Bath and Bristol are 12 miles away and Wells is 7. We benefit from a rich diversity of culture which also includes Glastonbury, Cheddar and Wookey Hole - all very conveniently located. The area has always been a mecca for cider drinkers, but is now a vital area for wine growers...if you are interested in touring either or both please let us know and we will help with an intinerary
Getting around
You need a car....but cycling around quiet lanes is fun...or just walk to neighbouring villages (and their pubs)
