Greenlands Barn is in a lovely quiet spot off the River Tone. From the doorstep you can walk along the river, go further onto the Somerset levels or do a circuit to the local pub in the next village. The barn is light and airy with a large kitchen diner & living room, king size bedroom, spacious bathroom, walled courtyard and private riverbank. There are mountain bikes and a 2-person canoe for use during your stay. Historic towns, countryside or just a rest by the wood-burning stove awaits you.

The space
The barn is part of an old farm which used to be part of the a system at Ham Lock. Coalharbour across the suspension bridge took in the coal, Ham Mills ground the flour and still has a working waterwheel, Ham Lock cottage controlled the lock and Old Ham Wharf Farm and the two barns were the front-of-shop for those purchasing flour or taking goods through the navigation with barges loaded from the Tone. You can see the remnants of this in the buildings and enjoy the riverside setting and abundant wildlife that has reclaimed the space.

Where you’ll be

Taunton, England, United Kingdom

We are close to the Somerset Levels, Glastonbury, Street, Bath, Clarks Village Shopping, Bridgwater Carnival, The Quantocks, Exmoor, The Bridgwater to Taunton Canal so great area for wildlife and walking. We are local for the Kings College Cricket Festival, Somerset County Ground matches and just up the road from Taunton Rugby Club. If you are attending a local wedding at Maunsel House, Hestercombe, Huntstile Organic Farm, Mount Somerset, Woodlands Castle or any in the local villages I’m more than happy to drop you to the venue if I can and help arrange a taxi for your ride back.

During your stay

It’s your holiday, so you’ll have the barn and spaces to yourself. You’ll see me pottering around, mainly doing a lot of grass-mowing or similar. If you’re lucky I’ll have some fresh cucumbers, tomatoes and courgettes for you from my veg garden across the lane. I’m not an early riser and apart from the occasional waft of funk & soul music (which you can use to pinpoint my location in the garden or acre across the lane), you’ll pretty much not hear me. I can answer any questions by phone, text, email, messenger.
