The perfect retreat for two, a disused barn reimagined into an uber cool, contemporary pad tucked away at the foot of the Mendhip Hills in Somerset and only a short drive to the medieval city of Wells.
The Bolt can be found off the beaten track in a wild and rustic countryside setting; for the most part undiscovered and yet within only four minute’s-drive from the town of Wells.
Designed around its original features there’s a distinctly urban feel to the space, with split-level polished concrete flooring and steel beams contrasting the interior’s plush retro styling.
A contemporary wood burning stove, underfloor heating and chic furnishings add to the luxury of the open plan living area, while a modern kitchen complete with a cooker, fridge, and dishwasher means guests get to enjoy their time alone in complete comfort.
A large folding door makes the most of the beautiful setting and rural views, flooding the home with natural light and inviting the fresh country air inside, and the deliberately darker colour palette that adorns the walls creates a romantic, sultry mood throughout.
Carefully positioned lighting brings a unique atmosphere to every area within the space, and a gorgeous master bedroom featuring a king size bed and bespoke cowry shell chandelier; fashions a sumptuous retreat that’s perfectly suited to lazy mornings and breakfasts in bed.
Outdoors there’s plenty more on offer with a spacious slate patio being the perfect place to enjoy the sunshine.
Grab a throw and relax on a sun-lounger with a good book, or spend hours soaking in your own private hot tub without a care in the world.
Home to the oldest residential street in Europe, holidays in Wells are a time to discover and explore a fascinating history and it’s here that you’ll find the historic Vicar’s Close and the wonderful gardens of Bishop’s Palace.
Contrasting the old with the new, the city has a vibrant atmosphere with its own Artisan Corner, gorgeous shops, and a variety of restaurants lining its pretty streets; as well as many cultural events taking place each year including literary, food and film festivals.
Nearby are the famous Wookey Hole Caves; a fantastic display of show caves that are dramatically illuminated; as well as magical mirror maze, cave museum and mystic fairy garden to name a few.
