Sitting in the Mendip foothills, minutes from Wells and an easy drive to Bath, The Sheep Shack is a cosy, quirky barn conversion. It's a great base for a weekend getaway to explore and experience Somerset's known and hidden gems, pubs and beautiful countryside.

We're a friendly and busy family (2 young kids, 2 dogs, 3 goats and 1 cat) and although The Sheep Shack is more an extension of our family home than a 5* hotel, we would love to host you in our 'Airbnb' home from home bolthole.

The space
Our barn is one the the oldest buildings (14th Century) in the area and would have been used by the local farmer to rear animals downstairs whilst they lived upstairs. Luckily the sheep are gone, although the Inglenook fireplace would have been used during the lambing season to warm the new born lambs on cold spring nights as well as bake bread remains... sadly though the fireplace now warms the soul through Netflix rather than a wood fire. The kitchen, for a kitchen in a cupboard, comes with almost everything, including a dishwasher.

We do have another Airbnb below called Park Farm Barn next door (separate entrance) and the yard (where you can happily park your car) is used by them and others who help us out around our home and garden.

Guest access
The Sheep Shack is self-contained accommodation, with your own front door and apart from the yard and driveway, no shared communal spaces. The Barn is about 15 meters from our home and there is an outside sitting area that is for you up some steps.

We ask that if you bring a dog that you take them out up the lane.

Other things to note
Dogs are welcome although we do charge an extra £15 per pet payable on arrival.

We have another two Airbnb places at Park Farm. Park Farm Barn is attached to the Sheep Shack and The Bolthole is in the next door field.

Location

Bowlish, England, United Kingdom

We think we live in such a special place. We're in the Mendip foothills but only a few minutes from the centre of the UK's smallest city (Wells) and Shepton. Bowlish is a gorgeous hamlet with a distinctive run of listed buildings. Nature is on the doorstep and we often see deer in the garden, owls at dusk and moon shadows in the garden. And then we are a moment away from the tiny festival Glastonbury but you probably haven't heard of that...
