Chapel Barn is a 13th Century building which has been converted in to two holiday cottages. The cottages are available to rent for holidays all year round.

They are situated in the county of Somerset on the edge of the village of Compton Dundon near Street and Somerton. An 18th Century memorial to Admiral Hood looks down on the property. The nearby woods have foot paths running through with scenic views which are ideal for walkers.

Overall an outstandingly beautiful and easily accessible area. Come and have a relaxing holiday with us, you won't be disappointed.

History of the barn
Chapel Barn is a grade II listed building, once thought to have been a chapel. It is attached to Trays Farm House which dates back to the 16th Century. The property acquired its name when bought in 1734 by Thomas Trayne, a Somerton corn merchant. The wheel monchette pictured here on the barn was once the solar of an open hall house.

Trays Farm is a working farm which has been farmed by the Napper family for the last 60 years. The barn was once used for housing animals, before being used for cider making and in later years as farm storage and a workshop. It has now been converted to the highest standard for visitors to enjoy.

Chapel Barn 1 and 2
Both cottages have exposed beams and beautiful stone work, tastefully decorated with pieces of antique furniture.
Chapel Barn 1 is an open plan property which sleeps two and is the smaller of the two cottages. Chapel Barn 2 is much larger and sleeps four. Everything is included in the price and there is ample parking for both cottages.

Due to it being a working farm. We don't take pets and both cottages are non smoking.

Due to there being a fair number of steps within both cottages they are not suitable for the less mobile.

Local Amenities
The local pub and village are within walking distance away (½ mile) down the road, in the centre of the village. On the main road there is also a bus stop.

The town of Street is only 3 miles away and includes Clarks Village for the shopaholics! The historical town of Glastonbury is also near by as are the Somerset Levels and the city of Wells.

The South Coast towns of Lyme Regis and Weymouth or the Bristol channel towns of Clevedon, Weston-Super-Mare , Burnham-on-Sea, Minehead and Dunster are all within an hour's drive away.

Come and stay in a stunning location and enjoy a great holiday.
