About The Long Barn

The Long Barn is a stunning 5-Star Gold standard self-catering holiday home in Somerset. Tucked away in a rural location a few miles from Taunton, it's perfect for your next getaway with family, extended family and friends. Six ensuite bedrooms comfortably sleep 12 people, with features including a games room, heated indoor pool and an outdoor hot tub, and spacious grounds that make up part of a private 450-acre estate. If you're searching for an exceptional location to host a family reunion or milestone celebration, or you just love catching up with people you love in a place you'll adore, The Long Barn is ideal.

How can you not love a holiday in Somerset? This south-west county has something for everyone in every season. Bring your wellies for long walks through fields and beside rivers and streams, or hire a bike and tour far and wide using an extensive network of cycling routes. Go horse riding or try your hand at other country pursuits like clay pigeon shooting. Golfers have a choice of four impressive courses within a small radius, and there is plenty of scope for outdoor activities with Exmoor National Park, the Quantocks, Wimbleball Lake and North Somerset coast, all within easy reach.

Day trips can include shopping and lunch in Clarks Village or Exeter, sightseeing in Glastonbury, or touring Wells and its magnificent cathedral. Take a ride on the West Somerset Railway, go beachcombing at Watchet, or visit the National Trust's Dunster Castle and Watermill, Hestercombe Gardens, Killerton House and Knightshaze. Further afield, Bath and Bristol are packed full of historical sights, theatres, restaurants and shops.

The Long Barn is available for holiday bookings all year round. If you'd rather stay in, the owners can recommend caterers and natural therapy practitioners to make your stay even more enjoyable. If you are holidaying with family and friends you can also book The Old Stables which sleeps a further six guests.
