This spacious airy apartment is on the second floor of a converted barn standing in five acres featuring a lake with wild flower meadow, formal gardens and lawns, as well as fields and woodland areas. Your accommodation has totally independent access and there are extensive gardens which you are welcome to enjoy, making this a safe place to stay as we experience easing of lockdown conditions imposed by Covid-19.
We are conveniently situated on a working smallholding six miles to the west of Taunton just off the B3227. We have fine views of the Blackdown and Quantock Hills as well as the foothills of Exmore.
Guests are welcome to join in the feeding and care of the ducks – and visit the sheep when they are grazing locally.
Whether you choose to relax ‘at home’ or spend days away, we can assure of a peaceful and comfortable base here at Higher House.
We encourage our guests to make use of our grounds but warn you that we do have deep water on the property and must emphasise it is your responsibility to keep young children and pets safe.
We are pleased to welcome guests with well behaved dogs but request they are kept under control, as we have poultry on our smallholding.
Short breaks and week long holidays can be booked throughout the year.
Enjoy cricket in Taunton, golf at nearby Oake Manor and water sports at Wimbeball and Clatworthy. Cycle hire is available in Taunton. Somerset enjoys an extensive network of footpaths to provide country walks to suit all tastes.
