Nestled in the hamlet of Chelynch, in the beautiful Somerset countryside, a warm and friendly welcome awaits you. The Old Stables is a lovingly restored 17th century, Grade II Listed barn of outstanding character. We are Visit England Four Star/ Silver Award rated. We are ideally located on the edge of the Mendip Hills (an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) with easy access to the many delights that Somerset (and beyond!) has to offer.
