FAQ No 1: "Where is the nearest shop?" Previously, I have been guilty of sending guests to the supermarkets in Ilminster, but no more! An extremely pleasant, short walk over the hill to Shepton Beauchamp brings you to Angie's Village Shop and Tea Room filled with lots of local loveliness as well as the essentials. Not only do you avoid using your car, but you also benefit from the walk and you support a local business - the perfect combo!
For all you yoga lovers..... One perk in January is you don't need to get up at 'silly o'clock' to salute the rising sun though it is perhaps still a little chilly! Alternatively, if this is all sounding a bit extreme you could salute the setting sun from the comfort and cosiness of the hut - can you tell my yoga practice is slightly lacking discipline!?! Don't forget to pack your mat! Namaste 🙏
Armed with power tools and a spirit level I set too and installed the latest feature - a book shelf! So far, the selection of books is a little limited, mainly reference and a bit lacking in fiction. So for those of you looking for a steamy page turner, temporary membership of the Stocklinch Lending Library, housed in our old village telephone box, could be arranged for your stay. The choice is eclectic but there's definitely something for everyone! #telephonebox #villagelibr
Hola! I'm back on marmalade production bottling a bit of "spanish sunshine" for you to enjoy on your toast though we didn't need to "import" any sunshine here today - glorious blue skies overhead in Stocklinch all day ☀️😎
This gorgeous booklet, showcasing our local talented artists and craftsmen, will inspire and entice you to come and spend time in this corner of Somerset especially as several of the 'Masters' can be found just over the hill from here at Barrington Court.
Some of our most memorable and successful holidays have been short breaks, often only a couple of hours from home, yet feeling a world away. With less time and stress spent travelling, your precious time off can be spent focusing on some much needed R&R, enjoying all that this peaceful corner of Somerset has to offer.
This weekend's guests were in need of a very well earned rest after working through the festive season without a break! #weekendaway #weekendescape #couplesretreat #couplesescape #minibreak #microbreak #shortbreak #rechargeyourbattery #rejuvenate #reenergise #takingtimeout #escaperetreat #woodfiredhottub #luxuryglamping #luxuryshepherdshut
