What a delightful place. Bumble bee barn really lived up to its name. Everything was really spotless and Tammy the host was delightful too. Beautiful area and the thoughtful touches were so much appreciated. Fresh bread, butter, and biscuits etc. keep up the good work

The cottage had everything we needed for a very comfortable, quiet holiday. We appreciated the standard of cleanliness and the welcome pack. The hot tub was a bonus.

Bumble Bee Barn exceeded our expectations for a self catering property. The location is lovely, quiet and rural with some great walks from the property. The host Tammy was delightful and provided everything you needed for a relaxing holiday. The barn was very comfortable and well equipped. The hot tub was a real treat. Everyone is keen to return again!

Bumble Bee Barn, is a fine cottage to stay and explore the area. The hostess Tammy is very nice and available for all our questions. The hot tub is an added value.

As above

Nothing not to like. Beautiful barn, spotlessly clean, great hot tub and wonderful owner Tammy!

Tammy the host was brilliant,the cottage was brillant,would book again.

Bumble Bee Barn is possibly the best cottage we have ever stayed at. Great location on a working farm, but very quiet. Totally private with superb hot tub, or in our case due to 30 plus degrees "cool tub". Tammy is a wonderful super friendly owner who meets and greets you and then leaves you alone. However it is comforting to know she is there if you need her. Highly recommend the New Inn pub in the village only a half a mile away. Absolute peace and quiet to ease all stress away....PERFECT!!!

Great, comfy and clean cottage in a lovely secluded location. Tammy and Stewart are friendly and welcoming, but not intrusive. Bumblebee Barn was fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay.

A wonderful property in a great location. Highly recommended.

Overall the property and its equipment was very satisfactory. The village pub was excellent and thoroughly recommend, however if a meal is required during your stay would suggest that booking made well in advance.

What a wonderful stay we had at Bumble Bee Cottage! Tammy was so welcoming, showed us around and then left us to it, we knew how to contact her if we needed to.
I've never stayed anywhere where so much thought has been put into the furnishings, beautiful touches all around and yet still leaving space for our bits and pieces. Great hot tub, wonderful views and the company of a couple of chickens (with character) to keep us entertained! A short walk to an amazing pub which had the friendliest atmosphere and lovely food.
Thank you Tammy for sharing your wonderful Bumble Bee Barn with us. I don't think there is any doubt that we will be booking again in the future.

Lovely place, excellent facility catered for all your needs. Lovely places to visit, Steam Train just 15 minutes away to go on a ride to Minehead. Tammy a lovely host. Hot tub a big bonus. All very clean we could not fault anything. We will visit again Marion and Stephen

A perfect little holiday home so quiet and peaceful a perfect getaway from it all haven.

Everything we needed for a relaxing break. We loved our holiday in Bumble Bee Barn and owner Tammy is fabulous!!

A return visit for myself after my two daughters booked a surprise long weekend birthday treat for us all. A wonderful welcome again from Tammy , she truly is an excellent hostess and rightly very proud of her holiday cottage.Everything has the personal touch about it and a true home from home experience. It is immaculately presented and very comfortable and covid safe.

It is situated on their working farm which is extremely well kept, stunning views over the farmland from all the windows. Fabulous location on the edge of the village and only a few minutes walk to The New Inn, which is also very welcoming and serves superb food. We ate there twice and it’s an amazing place. So many great things to do nearby. We visited Dulverton and loved the walk to Tarr Steps . Hestercombe House and parkland were wonderful in the Autumn sunshine as were the National Trust properties.

We couldn’t wait to return after a day’s walking to the fabulous hot tub. It is immaculately clean , fresh water for new guests.The perfect place for star gazing!!! and the odd glass of fizz!! We had a fabulous weekend break, thank you for providing such an excellent holiday home. We sincerely hope we can visit again in 2022.

An excellent rural bolthole with teh added benefit of an excellent hottub.

We received a very warm welcome from Tammy, the owner, on arrival and she gave us a demonstration of how to operate the hot tub, heating system etc - which was very helpful. The cottage had everything we needed and we enjoyed cooking for ourselves in the well equipped kitchen. The outside space was great , as were the views across the fields to the hills beyond. The additional luxury of the hot tub was superb - it was easy to operate and we enjoyed relaxing in it in the evenings whilst star gazing! The property was on the edge of the lovely village of Halse and it was about a ten minute walk to the excellent New Inn. There were plenty of great places to visit nearby and we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the beautiful area of West Somerset.

Cottage is great and in a lovely village. Lots of room for 4 people and hot tub was amazing. I will definitely be back again. Big thank you to Tammy x

We had a lovely Stay . Excellent in all way , right from facilities in the accommodation , to exploring near by and ex-moor , walks , beaches was so convenient.

This is our 2nd time of staying at Bumble Bee Barn & we couldn’t recommend it enough. If you are looking for a a relaxing break where you can switch off from life, this is the place. Remote location in a small village, great local friendly pub. Tammy is a great host. We will return again

A lovely property, very clean and well presented with an enthusiastic owner happy to help. The hot tub is an asset, great way to relax and while away the time.

The barn is remote enough to be very peaceful, but close enough to civilisation for plenty of decent pubs, and grocery deliveries! The mobile phone signal is a bit sketchy, but that's a small price to pay for such a relaxing break.

After a rough start to 2021 for me & my family, I was looking forward to taking my husband away for a break/change of scenery. Upon our arrival, we were definitely not disappointed, Tammy was very welcoming & the welcome pack she left us was a lovely surprise. The barn was very spacious, there was everything you needed, Tammy had certainly thought of everything. Our overall stay was very enjoyable, the bumble bee theme around the barn was a lovely touch, the location & views were lovely. We would certainly recommend this property.

Bumble Bee Barn is immaculately clean and everything you could want for a stay is there. The peaceful location was perfect for us. Tammy gives you a warm welcome and is available in the event you need her. Other than that you have you privacy. Just perfect.

Fabulous property, quiet location and wonderful welcoming owner. Thoroughly recommend for a get-away-from-it-all holiday. Everything was spotless.

After months of lockdown & shielding & a long overdue 40th Anniversary treat I had high expectations. We drove down beautiful country lanes surrounded by golden fields in glorious April sunshine. Lucky us!! I would describe seeing Bumblebee Barn for the first time as a WOW moment!!! Stunning location offering amazing views from every window. It’s privately and peacefully set away from the main farmhouse . We had the most wonderful welcome from Tammy which actually made my day, she explained everything we needed to know & then left us to explore the barn. Another WOW moment stepping inside! Immaculate in presentation & cleanliness. Well done Tammy you clearly work very hard maintaining that standard. Extremely comfortable, spacious, warm & cosy & homely. Tammy had left us beautiful flowers & delicious shortbread along with bread , butter, milk etc which was unexpected and very much appreciated, thank you. I was super impressed by the immaculate hot tub, fresh water for every new guests, perfect for star gazing & also by the extra Covid cleaning within the barn. We loved touring around Somerset, especially Bossington to Porlock walk, East Quantockhead walk, Dunster Castle, Hestercombe Garden. But actually we couldn’t wait to return home to the barn each day. Great farm shop by the train station. An outstanding property !! Thank you we loved every minute as you can tell. I’d book two weeks if I were you as you probably won’t want to leave after one!! X

We had a lovely, relaxing time at Bumble Bee Barn. Everything was superb, well equipped in the kitchen. 5 star stay. Would definitely come back again. Tammy was a fab host and nothing too much trouble for her.

A perfect, comfortable and well furnished barn/cottage for a relaxing and peaceful break.

Lovely owner who makes you very welcome and explains everything, great walks on the doorstep so no need to drive out unless you want to and a large, amazing hot tub.

Would recommend Bumble Bee Barn to anyone looking for a quiet, country break with every home comfort.

Bumblebee Barn is so clean and comfortable. Staying is an absolute pleasure. The hot tub is especially relaxing. Tammy is wonderful and made us feel very welcome. I especially loved the location so quiet and peaceful. A real gem.

A lovely barn, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The hot tub was a nice added bonus after a day walking. Would definitely recommend to friends.

A lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings, with great views to the nearby hills and Quantocks beyond. It was a pleasure to be within the grounds of a well kept farm run by friendly owners.It seemed difficult to control the temperature of the spa, but it may just be slow to drop in hot weather.

A beautiful Place to escape to from our busy life. Quaint details to the Bee theme throughout. Open plan living on a working arable farm.

This is the best we have stayed in and we have been to quite a few over the years. Classic Cottages please keep up the great work and don't let your standards slip. We like to pay for top quality and all the accommodation has been just that over the years.

The barn is in a very quiet location and provides all you need and more.

Tammy is lovely and is full of great suggestions for your stay. She made us feel extremely welcome. Such a great place to spend a weekend.

we had a lovely stay at Bumble Bee Barn it was well equipped, comfortable and warm. The hot tub was a lovely bonus. We would recommend this to anyone who doesn't mind being in a rural position.

A real little gem! We shall be returning??

Absolutely fabulous property.

Absolutely love this accommodation. Wish I could take it with me to every holiday. Tammy goes the extra mile to provide lots of little extra luxuries and the towels are simply amazing. Spotlessly clean. She quite obviously takes a lot of pride in her cottage. Our second stay here. So relaxing. It’s a gem of a place.

Welcoming host. The barn was well-provisioned. Located on a clean working arable farm. Lovely views. Private and not overlooked. Nice large clean hot tub. Very generous host.

Amenities very good including all consumables provided and a drinks/food starter pack.

Brilliant from start to finish. The booking process was made very easy due the excellent website and our preference of a six night stay rather than a full week was easily accommodated. There was also a good range of choice. Pre holiday information was comprehensive without being over the top and the arrival arrangements were exactly as described. Bumble Bee Barn and the owner Tammy were an absolute delight. The cottage was spotlessly clean and we found everything that we needed. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble which helped for a relaxing stay.Tammy was brilliant - she is clearly very proud of this cottage and she should be as a lot of effort must go in to keep it up to the high standard. Halse is a quiet area - close enough to the town, Exmoor and the Coast but far enough away from everything to give us the chance to relax after a hectic few months.

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful review - we're delighted that you enjoyed your stay, as we know Tammy the owner will be. This is such a popular and well looked after cottage, and we're very pleased to add you to the list of happy customers. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Tanya, Customer Support

Tammy was the perfect host. Attentive but unobtrusive with infectious, fun personality. The barn was fantastic and everything we hoped for and the perfect place for relaxation or a base to explore the area from. The hot tub was fab.

We would thoroughly recommend Bumble Bee Barn as a venue to explore Taunton and the surrounding area.

This was our second visit to Bumble Bee Barn this year and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Tamsin is a lovely and friendly host. Nothing is too much trouble for her. Keep up the good work! We can't wait to visit this property again

The very best cottage we have stayed in. Everything was excellent.....from the welcome by the lovely owner, Tammy, to the bits and pieces she left to welcome us with....fresh flowers, milk, bread, biscuits and butter. Could not be faulted. As well as the excellent fixtures and fittings which were first class, in addition the hot tub was superb...easy and simple to operate...has obviously been well maintained. Very peaceful location, great, private outlook. Were still looking, and finding, bumble bees after a week!!

Beautiful barn, with home from home extra touches, lovely location as wanted a real get away holiday and was lovely to have daily visits from the farm chickens, just lovely!

We have been to a few of your properties now and Bumble Bee Barn is the best by far. One word describes the whole experience for us - "FANTASTIC". Tammy was a really lovely, friendly and bubbly person. She is an excellent host. Nothing was too much trouble. We can't wait to go again.

The cottage was a sympathetically converted barn,and a lovely peaceful setting for a relaxing break. The hot tub was a wonderful addition. One of the best cottages we have stayed in.

Bumble Bee Barn was even better than the pictures. In a fantastic quiet village, but within driving distance to visit some excellent locations. Tammy was a fantastic host and gave us a very warm welcome. We are looking forward to our next visit already!

A very nice cottage in a good location.

Most relaxing holiday we have ever had with delightful views from the Barn.

Massive hot tub was fabulous.

Welcome from Tammy was so warm and friendly

Lots of thoughtful touches, spotlessly clean and well maintained

Bumble Bee Barn is by far the nicest cottage we've ever had the pleasure of staying at. The decor was lovely and there was every equipment you could want, including a washer/dryer! The hot tub was fabulous and luxurious and secluded on decking, surrounded by a high fence and there were tall shrubs to add to the beautiful surroundings, together with loungers. There was also a lovely patio with table and chairs, a barbecue and a pretty lawn with hedging, and just as a finishing touch there were some friendly chickens. What more could you want? Excellent and highly recommended!

Our first time using Classic Cottages and we wouldn't hesitate to book again. The property description was highly accurate - we've stayed in converted barns before and few have met expectations but Bumble Bee Barn most certainly did. One of the most comfortable and well equipped holiday rentals we've ever had. The peace and quiet was very welcome and the big hot tub a real bonus. The weather was also very kind and we were able to enjoy the ample outdoor space. We had an excellent holiday and would love to return someday and will certainly use Classic Cottages again.

Spacious, comfortable and in an excellent location. Not too far from Taunton but far enough to provide peace and tranquility. Would we come back - yes we would!

What a gem of a property , a real escape .

We very much enjoyed our stay at Bumble Bee Barn. This is a first class well thought out property. Quiet, clean and cosy in a beautiful part of the West Country. We would thoroughly recommend this property.

Lovely, comfortable cottage furnished to a high standard. Very well equipped with a lot of thoughtful extra touches and attention to detail. Hot tub was the icing on the cake.

Fantastic property, fantastic host. You simply can't go wrong by booking this property.

If you are happy to negotiate very narrow country lanes, then the location is wonderfully quiet and peaceful. The barn is well equipped and comfortable and the hot tub is great!

Bumble Bee Barn in a little piece of heaven on earth. We have an absolutely fabulous holiday and will definitely return.

An excellent location , very peaceful and quiet . The hot tub was a bonus and much used. A very warm and enthusiastic welcome from Tammy . We shall return.

One of the best holiday homes we have stayed in. I think we will be going back there again and again!

A beautiful barn conversion, in a lovely peaceful setting. Furnished to the highest standard with everything you could possibly need. Icing on the cake is the lge hot tub ideal for drinking champagne while watching the stars. We will be going back.

Had the most amazing time at cottage. Loved the hot tub and Tammy was fantastic . The local pub is very friendly and serve good food. Would highly recommend

A lovely cottage in secluded location, ideal for a relaxing break. We received a really warm welcome and had a lovely time. The hot tub is the icing on the cake!

this is a first class cottage, in a really lovely location. with every thing you could wish for at hand.The views around the barn sent you straight into holiday mode.

The owner was very friendly and offered us a warm welcome, including a welcome package and fresh flowers !

After a long, arduous journey, it was lovely to receive a warm, friendly welcome from Tammy. Bumble Bee Barn was really cosy and comfortable, and lived up to our expectations. The cottage is situated in a wonderful location, with superb views to wake up to. It is ideally placed for visits to the many interesting attractions in Somerset.

Recommend Bumble Bee Barn to people who want to be in the country side, away from anything. It was so relaxing with the hot tub especially, u felt youdididn't need to go anywhere xxx

Best cottage we have stayed in.

Bumble Bee Barn is the perfect cottage in the perfect location. The owners have truly thought of everything and their warm welcome is second to none.

A perfect stay, lovely barn with everything you could possibly need, peaceful, welcoming and very relaxing, highly recommended.

This place exceeded our expectations. The most leisurely three days I've had in a long time. The place has everything you could need. We used the OS map to take a long walk to the next village, took a drive to Porlock for some beach time (only 25 miles away) and spent plenty of time in the hot tub. The view from the double doors on the ground floor is magnificent to wake up to, and barn really felt like our home for the weekend. It's the perfect escape. Thank you Tammy!

A warm welcome from the owner ( a first for us!) a welcome pack and sensitive support during our most relaxing stay was wonderful. A hot tub every evening was a delight. Had many trips out but on our next visit we will spend more time chilling out at the cottage, many thanks for a wonderful week

Magic in Somerset

LOVED the hot tub. The master bed is also very comfortable. Big plush bath towels, lovely

Wonderful cottage, lovely walking and quiet lanes to amble along. Cottage is equipped with everything you could wish for!

Do not visit - we want it all for ourselves!

The whole Bumblebee experience was fantastic from stay to finish. Tammy has Thought of everything, even flowers to welcome us! the Hottub was a fab way To relax in the evenings. We were sorry to leave.

The photos don't do this cottage justice at all! It is far better than it looks!

A very get away from it all cottage to spent time relaxing and chilling out, a lovely part of the country

Fantastic cottage, well equipped and a wonderful welcome from Tammy the owner. Nothing too much trouble and little touches like milk, butter and biscuits on arrival made all the difference. The hot tub added an element of luxury and was used every night. A perfect break!

We enjoyed using Bumble Bee as a base to explore the area. The warm and friendly welcome from the owner started a brilliant week. It was amazing to come back every evening to slip into a warm and inviting hot tub and relax.

Loved the barn. Very clean, comfortable, tastefully furnished and decorated. Very peaceful location. Enjoyed watching the buzzards overhead and the many pheasants roaming in the garden and fields. Great outside area, hot tub a bonus especially at night under the stars with a glass of wine!

This is the best place that we have stayed, we have been to many places over the past few years some ok, some pretty good but no match for Bumble bee barn. Simply the best.............

Excellent accommodation in peaceful setting, the Owner was very informative and passionate about her holiday let. The pheasants provided the entertainment. Jan & Liz, Oxford.

Bumble Bee Barn is an idylic property for a quiet, relaxing and romantic weekend away.

A delightful property - bright and airy with everything you could possibly need for a week away. The owners provide all of the little extras to make you feel completely at home.

Very cosy cottage, close to nature. The road past the house hardly has any traffic and the farm is also not busy, so you are more likely to be woken in the morning by birdsong than by vehicles. Mobile reception is pretty poor but O2 works, we also used a dongle for Internet access but it is 2G so very slow. Facilities otherwise excellent and beds very comfortable!

Beautifully equipped cottage in a good location. The owner was extremely welcoming and friendly and the local pub does good food.

Quiet and peaceful location. The only problem is if you want a beach and children attractions it is a bit out of the way.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
