A restful retreat to soothe the soul It's not unusual for psychotherapists to suggest a holiday, but it's unusual for them to specify one particular place. But that's why a steady stream head down from London to experience the tranquil elegance of this very special place, a radical 'Grand Design' creation of glass and steel set a few fields from Glastonbury Tor. Around are sheep and trees, inside cosy interiors beautifully furnished with modern facilities and antique art. This is a place where you can relax in luxury and free your spirit. Upper Crannel Farm Barn was designed by the leading architect Richard Paxton, a regular star of TV's Grand Designs, and his brief was to make the buildings part of the landscape. In this he more than succeeded: you feel as though he's brought the landscape into the building. It feels nothing like a 'rented space', with excellent paintings, interesting decorative pieces and bookshelves crammed with good books but also modern comforts, with wifi throughout and underfloor heating.
