Stylish self-catering holidays and short breaks

Self-Catering holidays with a difference

Relaxation begins on arrival with a warm and friendly welcome.

Our charming self-catering accommodation includes four contemporary, cosy, well equipped cottages and three eco-friendly cedar lodges; all nestled within the Somerset countryside near to Bath and Longleat.

Situated in the heart of farmland on the edge of the Somerset-Wiltshire borders, we have created a peaceful, tranquil setting. You’ll love the beautiful unspoilt views of the surrounding countryside. The lawned area beyond your accommodation is perfect for young children to play and enjoy the long Somerset evenings, great for using up any extra energy and ideal for ball games and barbecues.

Our properties are on the edge of the delightful, historic stone village of Beckington with its Norman Church and castle. It has many places to relax and enjoy from the fabulous delicatessen ‘Mes Amis’ to the merry Woolpack Inn, the local pub in the heart of the village. Those feeling more energetic will be tempted by the great walks. The award winning farm shop is practically on your doorstep; great for food for your eat-in evenings or your daily croissant!

By The Byre Holidays is the choice for those who want both an extremely child and baby friendly holiday coupled with quality and style in a rural idyll; though we still offer a quiet time just for grown-ups! This is the place that offers you a secluded hideaway from which to explore.

Family focus

Having been attracted to this area to give our own children that outdoor country lifestyle and bringing up our own young family we know only too well how important it is to cater for babies, toddlers, children and young teens.

We have safety as a top priority and have a large collection of stair gates (for the two storey cottages), cots and high chairs. We also have a toy library, along with books, puzzles and DVD’s.

Outside is no different, we have ride-ons, footballs and plenty of outdoor space to help tire out young legs so that come nightfall you can look forward to a peaceful night. Should you want to take yourselves off to the local restaurant for an evening meal, or pub for a night cap we can help by recommending baby-sitters who can come on-site.
