Once a stable block, Old Stables now offers the ultimate bolthole for eight plus three*. Seriously indulge in the range of activities on hand. Or kick back and relax!
Nestled near the village of Pensford overlooking the stunning Mendip foothills in the Chew Valley, Old Stables sits in extensive grounds with access to a luxury heated swimming pool with a hot tub, steam room and changing rooms.
Old Stables is located adjacent to East Wing (sleeps six + two) in ten acres of beautiful grounds. Originally built in 1800 as part of the Belluton Grange estate, the grounds retain many Georgian features, including a well and a rare Georgian Horse Wash, utilising a natural spring.
Gone are the horses and groom - instead you’ll find glorious accommodation for eight over four bedrooms, with a sofa bed and child’s bed available for up to three more guests if required (*extra fee). Retaining its original character, there is plenty of space for everyone to relax and dine together.
The Stables benefits from two reception rooms – the Garden Room with magnificent views, and a spacious sitting room with wood burner. A fully equipped open plan breakfasting kitchen is next to the living area. All of these rooms have French doors that lead onto the garden.
Upstairs are three luxury en-suite bedrooms, two with super king beds that can be made up as twins if required, and the third with a 5 ‘ king. Two have bathrooms with freestanding baths and separate showers., one has a shower room. The fourth bedroom is located downstairs and has full size bunk-beds and access to a downstairs washroom.

Chew Valley is unique in the West Country, comprising some 35,000 acres of unspoilt and protected countryside which occupies the middle ground of the Bath, Bristol and Wells triangle.

The valley contains both the Chew Valley and Blagdon Lakes, notably for their fishing, birdlife, sailing and nature study amenities. The villages in the Valley are all unspoilt and each has its individual charm and character.
There are several walks from the front door, including a stiff climb up to the Iron Age Hill fort atop Norton Malreward or a meander along the Chew Valley to see the Stanton Drew Standing Stones.
