    The Yard, Doulting, Shepton Mallet sleeping up to 4 guests

    Complimentary Welcome Hamper
    A complimentary welcome hamper will be awaiting you on your arrival containing milk, tea, fresh coffee, bread, butter, eggs, juice, wine and cheese, along with other essential items to prepare a light snack or breakfast. There may be some regional variations.

    The Yard is a converted stable on one level, sitting at the end of a secluded private drive with ample parking. It has been renovated to provide a luxurious, modern, light and warm space with open access to the outside patio and fields. In a rural location, the property offers everything needed for a relaxed and comfortable stay. When the sun is shining, open the doors and spill out onto the patio with a barbecued feast. If it's raining, chill out in the calm conservatory watching the wildlife, or snuggle up in the cosy sitting room to read a book or play a board game.
    Within walking distance of the village pub for good food and ales, this property is also in a central location for visiting many renowned places of national interest including Wells, Glastonbury, Cheddar, Wookey Hole, Longleat, Bath and Bristol. In addition, there are many local places and attractions to visit that make the area distinctive and special; from St Aldhelm's Well and the tithe barn in the village of Doulting, to a local folly Cranmore Tower or the beautiful Beacon Woods. Also close by are the towns of Bruton, 'artisan' Frome and Castle Cary to name but a few. Stourhead, King Alfred's Tower and Lytes Cary Manor are also nearby. Located on the edge of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with its wild high landscape of lead mines and limestone caves and gorges and the natural habitats of the low level marshes and moors, The Yard is a perfect base for exploring all the riches that Somerset has to offer.

    Confirmed Guest
    "It was a great location with nearly all the amenities you could require and the large shower was wonderful. Fantastic outdoor space with the bonus of a conservatory, useful when the wind was blowing outside. A good base to explore the surrounding area with lots of walks in the locality.However, for US the property would be 5 star if a larger fridge was provided as it was difficult to get all our food in refrigeration and there was only 2 of us! A freezer would also have been useful. A DVD player is a must in luxury accommodation although the quality of the TV was excellent. Finally it was very difficult to get any ventilation in the bedrooms at night as there were no opening windows - only patio doors - a security worry? The hamper was very welcome, however the contents could be less sugar based. Although we were warmly welcomed on arrival there was no one about to give feedback at the end of the rental. We appreciate this is a new property so hope these comments will prove helpful."

    "The property is a lovely, light-filled space in a delightful spot. Facilities are perfect for a relaxing break. Good point to start exploring the area. Choice of items in the starter hamper delicious. Entertainment provided by birds, rabbits and other wildlife. The whole is very recommendable."
