Description

The Barn at Rapps Cottage" is a stunning barn conversion within the curtilage of a genuine 15th Century Grade II listed Somerset Long House. Full of character and Somerset charm, this thatched holiday home is a perfect place to start exploring the many attractions of the South West.

Easily accessible from the A303 and M5, yet surrounded by the splendour of the Blackdown Hills, Somerset Flats and the Dorset Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this all-ground-floor haven is perfect for a pair seeking a rural escape, with the highlights of Somerset on your door step.

With reserved parking and gardens to relax in, the Barn itself boasts original beams and a genuine thatched roof and garden view. It makes a wonderful choice for a traditional English countryside escape.

Beautifully fitted out with oak furniture, comfy sofa and intimate dining area, the Barn at Rapps Cottage is the perfect place to unwind after a day full of Somerset adventure.

The kitchen area is equipped with everything you could need if you decide to forego the many excellent cafes, pubs and restaurants in the area. With a combi microwave/oven, electric hob, fridge and freezer, it has all you need to prepare a romantic meal or hearty breakfast which can be enjoyed on your own private patio or simply in front of the smart TV with DVD player and sound bar for a quiet night in.

No expense has been spared on a 6000 spring, hypo-allergenic super king size bed with genuine Egyptian cotton sheets for a perfect night's sleep. Or request for the bed to be made into two singles if you're travelling with a friend!

A large country garden is available for you to enjoy, with a picnic hamper should you wish to dine, or just wine, by the pond.

The nearest pub is just a walk through the countryside and offers everything you might want from a country inn. Many others offer variety and quality dining within a few short miles.

Pretty Ilminster is on your doorstep for all of your local amenities such as ingredients for your homemade meals and boasts pubs, cafes and excellent delicatessens as well as a rich history worth exploring through its stunning Minster, art gallery and concert hall.

A perfect base to explore Somerset, Devon and Dorset, there are many characterful towns, national trust sites (such as Barrington Court) and fascinating itineraries to fill your days. Pop down to the coast for breakfast in Lyme Regis before moseying eastwards to the Jurassic coast, West Bay (setting of "Broadchurch") and Bridport. The next day, head north to Glastonbury, Cheddar Gorge and the beautiful Quantock Hills or maybe take in the pretty towns of Langport and Somerton. If you want to shop, Taunton, Yeovil and Exeter are within easy reach. There really is so much to do here, you'll need to come back…

At the heart of the South West's cycling network and with secure cycle storage provided, there are so many wonderful cycling opportunities within the area and in all directions. The Chard to Ilminster route is particularly popular for a gentle cycle ending at Chard Reservoir, or for the more hardcore the route continues to the coast.

The Barn at Rapps Cottage makes a marvellous choice for an escape to the Somerset countryside.
Ilminster is a town and civil parish combined with the hamlet of Sea in Somerset. There are a wide variety of eateries within the town, including pubs, cafés and restaurants, as well as there being a good selection of both high street and independent shops too. Both the Blackdown Hills and the Dorset Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty lie within close reach for a day out full of outdoor adventure, or spend a day in historic Yeovil, Chad or Taunton, all just a scenic drive away.

‘We stayed in the barn recently for a week. Our hosts Phil and Jayne were very friendly and helpful in every way. The barn was warm and comfortable and had everything we could possibly need for our stay. There were welcome touches such as a hamper of local products, fresh local bread, milk etc. We went for a meal at the Bell at Broadway which had amazing chef cooked food, and for a curry at Rajpoot Indian restaurant in nearby Ilminster. The barn is halfway been the two coasts so there were lots of places to explore. Taunton is only about 15-20 minutes away by car and well worth a visit. We'd love to return to Rapps again in the spring and see the lovely garden coming back to life after the winter. Thank you Phil and Jayne, we loved it!’

‘We had a fantastic time at the Barn at Rapps cottage. Phil and Jayne were wonderful and friendly hosts, always there to offer assistance with the accommodation and advice for things to do in the local area - even small little things like offering a torch for a walk to the local pub, The Bell at Broadway - which does excellent food. They were so sweet with all the little touches around the barn... A welcome hamper, filled with local products - honey, gin and tonic marmalade, two bottles of cider from Perry’s just down the road, biscuits, fresh bakery bread, condiments and cereals. As we were their first ever guests, they also left us a bottle of Prosecco and a welcome card. There were no issues whatsoever with the facilities in the barn - the hot plate works well as a replacement counter-top, and the microwave includes a grill, which we didn’t try. The bed was so comfortable, with the softest sheets. We slept perfectly all three nights. There are plenty of things to do within a half hour drive - we did a walk from Chard through the Blackdown Hills with fantastic and varied scenery, visited Glastonbury, seeing the Tor, abbey and the town, caught the sunset at Ham Hill Country Park - with a nice little pub, and drove down to Lyme Regis beach. Needless to say we were busy all three days, but never had to rush and still had lots of time to enjoy relaxing in the barn and the front garden, which they kindly offer full use of. Our only regret is not booking for longer. We would return in a heartbeat and hope to do so in the near future. Thank you very much Phil and Jayne! Sean & Frankie’
