Lovingly converted barn in a gorgeous courtyard setting, we have kept as many of the original features as possible. Extremely well equipped with super king bed and amazing walk in shower, the kitchen has everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There is plenty of outside space and you are welcome to make use of our tennis court, bicycles can be provided so you can explore the local area.

The space
The Potting Shed is in a lovely courtyard along with The Dairy. The main farmhouse is across the courtyard so you are private and but we are here should you require anything.

The Potting Shed is a spacious luxury barn conversion, originally part of the pig sty to the farmhouse. We have enjoyed finding antique and vintage furniture from local auction houses to give a homely feel. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, with dishwasher, induction hob and fan oven. Wood burning stove ideal for cosy nights in, there is also Smart TV with Bluetooth soundbar. Having rented many holiday lets over the years I know what is needed to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. We can provide additional fridge and freezer space for longer stays, please ask. There is also a travel cot available.

The local area has much to offer from Artisan courses in stone carving, metal work and pottery. Perfectly situated for bird watching on the Avalon Marches famous for its Starling murmurations.
The Jurassic Coast is only 45 mins away, wonderful walking whatever time of year.

The immediate area has a wealth of NT properties within 20mins, Montacute, Barrington Court, Muchelney Abbey, Lytes Cary. East Lambrook Manor Gardens (5 mins) created by the famous Margery Fish http://www.eastlambrook.com/pages

Guest access
There is an all weather tennis court which can be booked in advance and there are bicycles for your use. There is a large courtyard directly outside The Potting Shed with table and chairs for al fresco dining. Next door is The Dairy which also shares the courtyard.

Other things to note
The Potting Shed shares the old farmyard of Greystone House with The Dairy, also listed on Airbnb.
