Near Bridgwater and Taunton in Somerset
Holiday cottages at Great House Barns

Short Breaks

Time to relax and enjoy, indulge and refresh, at you own leisurely pace. Our comfortable cottage with full central heating and countryside views provides just that restful place to unwind out of the main holiday season.  Read the paper or your favourite book, or take a wander down to the canal and walk the solar system.

The winters are usually mild and spring comes early to this beautiful part of Somerset. The numerous glorious gardens of Somerset including those at Hestercombe are the result, bursting into vivid colour in the spring.

The crowds may be gone but there is still plenty to do as more and more attractions are open throughout the winter and spring including The West Somerset Railway, Dunster Castle and Fleet Air Arm Museum..

Enjoy the beautiful surroundings, with ample fishing, bird watching, cycling and golf opportunities. Enjoy a quiet walk along an empty beach or on the Quantocks watching the deer and many other species of wildlife.

Shoppers will enjoy the Clarkes Village Factory Outlet at Street, or the beautiful cities of Bath and Bristol which are less than an hour’s drive away..

If you are self catering but have run out of energy to cook, Kate's Kitchen does excellent home-made prepared meals. If you want to eat out, we have a list of recommended pubs and restaurants in the locality including Clavelshay Barn – a fantastic restaurant on a working farm which specialises in local produce.

From the end of October to Easter, apart from Christmas, New Year and February half term, we are totally flexible on the day of the week you arrive and leave and the length of stay. See the Prices page for Short Breaks Prices.
