Once part of the milk train that carried churns to Somerset dairies, Gabriel’s Wagon has been lovingly restored. It provides comfort, tranquility, fun and relaxation for a couple to stay amidst its rolling fields and heart-stopping views all the year round. Travel cot available for a babe in arms, Dog friendly with beautiful easy walks straight from the door. There is a big comfy bed and a beautifully crafted kitchen area with baby belling hob and oven, Belfast sink and little fridge. A sweet wood burning stove that lights like a dream keeps the wagon in constant warmth when needed, scenting the outside air with its gentle wood-smoke.

Sink into the deep feather cushions of the old Ercol sofa and open the French windows to enjoy the view down to the little village church in the valley below. Undercover of the translucent arched roof, walk out onto the red cedar and larch decking. At one end an old pine door leads to the bathroom that invites you to relax! Enjoy the treat of a cast iron roll-top bath filled with hot running water and privacy to open the door wide if you fancy, to see the view as you let go of all life’s demands. Down the wooden steps is a fire pit and fire wok if you wish to cook outside and enjoy the spectacular lookout spot by day and night. Additionally Gabriel's Wagon offers: • Local ingredients for breakfast • Bamboo bed linen and luxurious Vispring mattress • Woodburner with logs supplied • Covered verandah with place for muddy wellies & hooks for coats • Bruton town 3 miles away with restaurants, cafes and well stocked shops including The Organic Shop – organic co-operative • A special welcome for your dog with our own Pet Welcome Pack • Nearby off road parking More

We stayed in January, and even the terrible weather could not dampen our spirits! Charming and cosy with a beautiful view and toasty warm thanks to the log burner.
