About The Stables

The Stables is a contemporary timber and stone holiday cottage with gorgeous views. It sits peacefully within 24 acres of grounds at Cleve Farm near Churchstanton in Somerset. It's a luxurious escape for couples or individuals who appreciate the tranquil surroundings and the setting within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Stables is the only holiday rental on the farm. Guests have a private garden and direct access to pasture and woodland walks.

The Blackdown Hills AONB is a spectacular landscape with miles of footpaths, bridleways and cycling routes for fun days of exploration and adventure. Local walks include the nature reserve at Otterhead Lakes, once part of an expansive Victorian country estate and now a peaceful habitat with a diverse mix of flora and fauna. Stretch your legs walking around Brimley Hill Mire with features unique to the Blackdown Hills, or go a little further to the beautiful Gotleigh and Southey Moors. Some guests may be interested in RAF Upottery, a WWII airfield used by the RAF and United States Air Force and Navy during the D-Day operations. Other heritage sites in the Blackdown Hills include Dunkeswell Abbey and the Wellington Monument.

The Stables is only 20-minutes from the M5, so it's easy to get to places like Taunton, Wellington and Honiton for some shopping and sightseeing. Exeter's shops and cathedral are around a 40-minute drive from the cottage, while Glastonbury and Glastonbury Tor are around an hour's drive through stunning Somerset countryside. Many supermarkets deliver groceries to The Stables, as do Riverford and Able & Cole. You can also pick up essentials at the village shops in Churchinford and Hemyock.

If you're looking for a proper welly-wearing countryside holiday, you'll find it at The Stables. The modern cottage has gorgeous countryside walks from the door. It is available for bookings all year round.
