Rainsbury House - Group Holiday Accommodation in Somerset
The Barn and Barn Owl Cottage are let as one large unit, sleeping up to thirteen people, with an interlinking door between the two properties so it is ideal for two families if privacy is required. The Barn sleeps up to eight, while the Barn Owl Cottage sleeps up to five, however most guests choose to use the two cottages as one, whilst making full use of the two fully-equipped kitchens and lounge areas. The accommodation is 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. The accommodation retains many original features, including exposed stonewalls 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. The kitchen is well-equipped and the living areas are super comfortable. You will also find a dining table in each kitchen for smaller, more relaxed dining opportunities. 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 a 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 House has a great deal to offer groups of all ages.
