Bed & Breakfast in Somerset Cider Barn

Come and stay in our wonderful beamed barn, full of character in a peaceful rural hamlet near the River Tone and 3 miles from the M5.

The Cider Barn at Runnington is a splendid and dramatic old barn, set in beautiful countryside, situated between the Blackdown Hills, Exmoor, the Brendons and the Quantock Hills. Easily accessible - 2 miles to Wellington and 3 miles from M5 Junction 26. It's a wonderful place from which to explore Somerset, with lovely walks surrounding us - one at our gate leading to the River Tone where footpaths lead three ways. Visit us for an uplifting respite break while exploring beautiful scenery and the historic towns of Wellington, Tiverton, Taunton, Exeter, Dulverton and Dunster.

Our historic barn has been sympathetically converted by our family, retaining the original character whilst using modern technology – we have an air-source heat pump, underfloor heating, internet plug-in connections and Wi-Fi in all bedrooms.

There is an abundance of natural wood, with re-used original elm boards throughout and a dramatic oak floor and woodburner in the main reception room. Seven king posts are displayed along the barn’s roof. Downstairs, the high-ceilinged Cider Barn has a Mediterrranean feel with ceramic tiled floors, huge exposed elm ceiling joists, and French doors opening to the Courtyard garden.

"I would have no hesitation in recommending Cider Barn. It is a very tasteful and beautifully appointed barn conversion. From the owner's warm welcome through to the excellent breakfast, the whole all-too-brief stay was a memorable experience. I look forward to returning." Chris Burgess
