Ideal for a romantic getaway or an active family holiday spent discovering the delights of rural Somerset, Kittisford Barton has lots of features to make your stay as comfortable as possible. A large sofa and chairs arranged around the traditional wood burner are perfect for curling up in on chillier evenings or when the weather is typically English. Large outside decking makes a great spot for a coffee on sunny mornings as you plan the day’s activities, or an al fresco cocktail on a balmy summer evening spent basking in the tranquility of the stunning surroundings.
Kittisford Barton accommodation
The lodge is comprised of three spacious bedrooms: one double, one twin, and one bunk room. Solid pine beds, with comfortable mattresses and bedding, ensure that guests will sleep well after a busy day spent outside.
The shower and WC are accessed through the main door and are both fully plumbed in, while the shower runs off an independent hot water system and has a fully adjustable head, making sure that your break in the great outdoors is convenient and restful, with all the luxuries of home.
The kitchen has an easy to use butane hob for simple meals, and the wood burning stove is perfect for slow cooked, all-in dishes that warm the soul and are a lovely little addition to the rustic atmosphere. The dining area gives access to a zipped porch, a great way to store muddy wellies and wet coats away from the living space.
Locally sourced breakfast packs and bbq packs are available, please enquire during the booking process.
