Luxury Somerset

Somerset could be mistaken for a County of fields and dairy cows but you'd be mistaken. Somerset is all about luxury!

Step outside of the luxury surroundings of Chilcott's Barn and you are in the heart of Somerset County (more about Chilcott's Barn later!) never has there been a better place to explore, to admire and return to. But that is just our opinion!

Somerset has for decades been hot stuff and you should find out why for yourself. I dare you to stand on a British high street and ask 20 people what Mulberry make and most will tell you ........... HANDBAGS. Yes, that’s right the most amazing, luxurious handbags. Sophisticated, classic and admired the world over but did you know that they are still made in Somerset?! Two bag manufacturing factories in Somerset and Mulberry is one of the largest manufacturer of leather goods in the UK. All here in Somerset!

Somerset is also home to the smallest city in the UK - Wells is quite simply luxury in city form, albeit a very small one! Hosting a magnificent cathedral and the Bishop’s Palace surrounded by a moat, a haven of tranquility. Who knew this was in Somerset........ well we did actually hence we're telling you about it and all of its magnificence. Why not check out Vicar's Close while you are there as it is spectacular. The only complete medieval street left in the UK it is like stepping back in time. Although it may seem a museum piece this street is still habitable.

Take a trip driving through Somerset and you'll pass many stately homes, National Trust properties and private residences which in itself tells the tale of a luxury past. You can't really get more luxurious than the Georgian City of Bath. Always a popular choice with visitors to Chilcott's Barn, Bath is about an hour door to door. Spend time wandering the streets indulging in a spot of window shopping, people watch from one (or more) of the bars and restaurants and don't forget to admire the architecture. A hot spot of wealth Bath was the 'go to place' for relaxation and reviving one's health. Still massively popular today its wealth and luxury is still apparent for all to see.

But back to Chilcott's Barn........

The epitome of luxury in the Somerset countryside. Our 3 bedroom luxury self catering barn speaks for itself. The fabulous open plan kitchen, dining and living space with sofas to die for - perfection. The large, comfortable beds with White Company bedding perfect for a lazy morning overlooking the fields. The exquisitely designed bathrooms, the hand picked linens and soft furnishing. It all screams luxury. In fact we don't think you can find a barn sleeping 6 people that is any better! And just to top it all off - did you know we have a HUGE hot tub on its own private terrace? When can you book? Well, right now.
