Rainsbury House

The Barn at Rainsbury House offers a spacious barn conversion made up of two inter-linked buildings; The Barn and Barn Owl Cottage are located six miles from two delightful Somerset market towns, Wiveliscombe and Dulverton, and only one mile from the Devon border. This rural idyll, set in 16 acres adjoining the stunning Wimbleball Lake, offers a wealth of facilities and opportunities to make the most of the surrounding area, making it a perfect stay for friends and family, including a games room complete with table tennis. The accommodation retains many original features, including exposed stone walls throughout, which create a real sense of charm. All of the bedrooms are immaculately finished, beautifully combining antique furnishings with modern lamps and other thoughtful touches that will make you feel right at home. Both kitchens are well equipped and the living areas are super comfortable, plus each bedroom has a hair dryer. The dining table accommodates up to thirteen, the ideal place to enjoy a home-cooked family feast. Not only do you get a peaceful private garden, you can also wander through the 16 acres of private pasture and woodland frequented by deer, badgers and other woodland creatures. Rainsbury land adjoins the secluded and wooded corner of Wimbleball Lake. You can walk straight out of your front door onto a 9-mile ramble or cycle around the lake and onto the moor, without ever seeing a car. If you are feeling more adventurous, the Activity Centre on the opposite side of the lake boasts, sailing, cycle hire, kayaking, zorba balls, hi-wire assault course, an indoor climbing wall, archery and fly fishing. For a calmer pastime, head to nearby Wiveliscombe, offering a selection of quaint amenities and the fascinating Cotleigh Brewery where you can sample award-winning local ales, or visit the picturesque little market town of Dulverton, which is blessed with great shops, restaurants and pubs. Rainsbury has a great deal to offer groups of all ages.
