About The Old Stables

The Old Stables is a stylish self-catering cottage near Taunton in Somerset. The idyllic location is the perfect tonic for noise and stress, with beautiful rural views and lots of opportunities for countryside walks and bike rides. With three ensuite bedrooms, The Old Stables is ideal for families or friends and is available for holiday bookings all year round. Although very well-equipped for self-catering, guests will be pleased to know that there are a variety of local pubs and restaurants if you fancy a night off cooking.

You won't run out of ways to have fun when you stay at The Old Stables. As well as walking and cycling, you can go horseriding, play golf at one of four local courses, fish, swim and kayak on the River Tone, shoot clay pigeons, go quad-biking, climb hills, or stay in and indulge in a luxurious massage. National Trust properties include the impressive Dunster Castle and Watermill and Montacute House. With the North Somerset coast, Exmoor National Park, the Quantock and Blackdown Hills and Wimbleball Lake all within easy reach, you're spoiled for choice for things to do.

While you're in Somerset, why not spend a day soaking in the magic of Glastonbury and the breathtaking views from Glastonbury Tor. With its independent shops and its beautiful cathedral, Wells will win you over, and you can't beat the coast around Porlock and Watchet. Further afield, but still close enough for a day trip, Exeter, Bath and Bristol are crammed with historical buildings, fantastic shops and restaurants, theatres, and famous sights like the SS Great Britain and the Royal Crescent.

The Old Stables feels like a true escape, yet excellent road and rail links make it easy to reach despite its idyllic rural location. Holiday bookings are available all year round, with short breaks possible depending on availability. If you would like to bring your family and friends on holiday too you can also book The Long Barn, which sleeps a further twelve guests. Please see the owner's website for further details.
