De ruimte
On the upper floor there are two en suite luxurious guest rooms adjacent to each other. This area is divided from the main house by a heavy oak sliding door that will remain shut during your stay ensuring total privacy. Elegant stairs lead down to the media room with its surround sound cinema and the breakfast room (with oven/ hob, sink, fridge and all provisions you will need for a continental breakfast).

The host will set the table for breakfast so that you can enjoy it at your leisure.

Downstairs is also divided from the main house by a heavy sliding door in the hallway and some heavy panelled doors in the media room. The guest wing is serviced by its own private entrance with easy parking in the courtyard outside and excellent access to the entrance where you can easily unload your luggage.

Guests always comment on what a happy and light feel the space has!

French doors lead out to the garden from the media room where you can take in the dramatic southern views across the beautiful vale of Camelot towards Cadbury Castle (suggested as the possible location of King Arthur’s legendary castle).

There is a terrace space with an eating area in the charming courtyard between the house and the garage block.

There is no light pollution in North Barrow which means that the property is great for stargazers.

A swimming pool is available at owners’ discretion that is heated during summer months.

There is a wildlife pond in the South Eastern part of the property that guests can walk to and a cider orchard that has been recently planted.

There are various walks that originate from the village and the local roads are very popular with cyclists as it is on the south Somerset cycle route. There is a footpath that leads away from the far field (not visible) towards South Barrow.

PLACES TO VISIT
- The newly opened The Newt in Somerset is 4 miles away and has some excellent restaurants as well as beautiful gardens to explore (entrance fee required.)
- The popular Hauser & Wirth gallery in Bruton is only 10 minutes away which is great fun for all ages.
- There is excellent walking - highlights include Cadbury Castle, Corton Denham ridge and wildlife spotting on the Somerset levels. Stourhead (20 mins) is easily accessed along the A303 and has great walking around its beautiful lake and through its Italianate gardens.
- The charming Dorset town of Sherborne and its striking Abbey is 20 minutes away. The cathedral city of Wells with its magnificent cathedral and charming shops, is worth a visit as is the infamous Glastonbury tor (both 30 mins). Dorchester is 45 minutes away and the Jurassic coast is an hour’s drive which makes for an easy day trip.
- Haynes motor museum, with its seriously impressive collection of classic cars and excellent Go Kart track, is 5 minutes away.
- The renowned Longleat safari park is a must for families! (45 mins)

There are excellent pubs nearby, including The Red Lion, Babcary (5 mins), The Bull Inn, Hardway (15 mins), The Queens Arms, Corton Denham (15 mins), and The White Hart, Somerton (20 mins). Bruton and Castle Cary are less than 10 minutes away. Bruton has a number of excellent restaurants including The Newt in Somerset (4 miles), The Roth Bar and Grill, At The Chapel, Matt's Kitchen and Number One Bruton.

**The house would be an appealing rental during the Glastonbury festival as it’s only 15 minutes from the site entrance. (Yurts and tipis can be arranged in our field for a surcharge, as well as a private chauffeur to take you to and from the festival via the quiet Pennard gate, but please book these well in advance.)**

We are very close to the popular larger wedding and party venues Sparkford Hall (www.sparkfordhall.co.uk) and North Cadbury Court (www.northcadburycourt.com)

The house would also be suited to a smaller wedding gathering at the property itself - there is a charming church next door - or a special event.

There is extensive parking at the property, enough for 10+ cars. There is further parking space in the field if needed for an event.

I’m a wildlife filmmaker living in beautiful Somerset with my wife Laura and two happy children. I once made a wildlife film for Disney about flamingos that was shown in cinemas around the world. I love to travel, although haven't felt such itchy feet since moving to this wild part of England. I love to walk on the Somerset Levels and photograph the starling murmurations. I am a keen surfer and have been known to get up before dawn and drive to the coasts of Devon and Cornwall for a surf and then return in time for lunch at home. Being so close to the South West coasts is another great thing about living here! I once came across an epitaph on a Cumbrian gravestone. It read: "The wonders of the world The beauty and the power The shapes of things Their colours, lights and shades. These I saw. Look ye also whilst life lasts." This felt like good advice and has been something of a maxim for me on my own life journey!
