Bake House

Shepton Mallet, Somerset

Cycle back roads to Glastonbury, walk the Mendips - settle down by the log-burner with a book while the others watch a match next door


3 beds


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


A lively, creative, family setting in rural Somerset and a back-road cycle ride to Glastonbury. The Mazurs and their boys live in the farmhouse and have done-up one of its outbuildings, the Bake House, beautifully. The feel is rustic, arty, warm and comfortable with plenty of light on whitewashed stone walls, rugs on heated tiles, quirky artwork, old photos, stylishly mis-matched furniture, Indian quilts and curtains – sourced by Henrietta on her travels.  Two living areas add to the family-friendliness; one with plush purple sofabed and flat screen TV, the other with the wood-burner, more sofas and a door to the garden. Mind the antlers by the steps up to the kitchen: funky red units, gas cooker, round table, wooden dresser. Above is the main bedroom with more colourful eastern fabrics, its own bathroom and a ladder to a fun sleeping deck with double mattress. The other bedroom is a galleried space over the TV room: a crescent window for mornings in bed gazing over the fields. Head for Wells Cathedral and market, increasingly hip Bruton with its Hauser & Wirth Gallery, Stourhead and the Mendip Hills.
