Your 360-degree views, across sheep and the lush flat Levels, are to Glastonbury in one direction, Wells in another. Birds wing across the wide, silent sky. Phoebe has created a magical place; her two contemporary architect-designed barns are close to each other, but you’re nicely private in yours. Up you climb to the first floor, into a huge sitting room with a vast medieval painted fireplace facing a long sofa-settle. The kitchen/dining room is smart, handsome and a great space for cooking while you chat. In fact, each room is a work of art, with stacks of it on the walls. The bedrooms are generous: dark bed-covers and matching curtains, fine furniture and more interesting pictures. You have those views on three sides, and to the other you look over a farmyard. Massively comfortable, imaginative and unusual – this house is a treat. Phoebe has planted thousands of trees and will use her every penny to plant more, and to bring back more wildlife. She has a rare touch – and is very good company. Walk across fields to climb Glastonbury Tor; Wells, with its craft shops, good restaurants and cathedral is a mere five miles.
