Hayloft is the right-hand end of this lovely barn conversion in the historic National Trust village of Barrington.
The reverse level accommodation makes the most of the views - the first floor is a lovely open plan space.
The garden is at the front of the cottage - fully enclosed and very sunny when the weather obliges!
There is a wood-burner to add extra warmth for out-of-season holidays.
This grand farmhouse-style table will set the scene for happy family meals.
The kitchen is very well-equipped, with many items over and above our usual inventory.
A real home-from-home where you will feel very comfortable and relaxed.
The original barn window opens right up but do take great care - best to keep it shut if you are staying with children.
There are little details throughout the cottage that make it so homely....
....and some fun details that children will love!
This is the master bedroom on the ground floor.  Plenty of storage space and a very comfortable bed.
The bedroom looks out over the front garden.
This is the single bedroom, also on the ground floor. The extra-sized (4') single bed is very comfortable for an adult as well as for children.
Another view of the single bedroom.
This is the main bathroom - very arty and colourful as well as being a lovely size.
This is the en suite for the master bedroom - another cheerful and spacious room.
Artwork on the bathroom walls is a lovely cheerful detail.
The exposed brickwork adds character too.
There is a private parking space down the driveway to the left and this is the gateway to your garden and front door.
Children will love the details here.
The lawned top part of the garden is a good place to sit and enjoy a drink.
This is a very cheerful cottage with lots of friendly touches

Barrington village is idyllic, it’s perfectly possible to spend a day idling the time away walking, visiting Barrington Court, browsing in the craft studios and talking with the makers. We managed to buy most of our Christmas gifts in the woodturners studio, including a couple of beautiful souvenirs for ourselves. We will definitely use Classic Cottages again if we want to visit the West Country.

A lovely cottage in a great location with a good village pub serving good food and beer within a few minutes walk. A National Trust property within 15 minutes walk through the village.

Barrington was a good base to explore Somerset and National Trust properties in particular.

Very comfortable and clean cottage/barn in lovely village. Within easy strolling distance of the Barrington Boar pub, which provides fantastic food and is very welcoming and friendly. Excellent central Somerset location with loads to see and do without having to drive for miles.

A very comfortable, roomy cottage decorated and equipped to a pretty high standard. We had a most enjoyable week in this lovely part of Somerset - walking, visiting gardens & houses and just chilling.

June 2017

The property is beautifully decorated, full of character, spacious and with the benefit of having 2 large bathrooms. Barrington is a charming and friendly village with easy access to many places of interest. You can easily walk to Barrington Court and on to the Somerset levels. We were lucky that our visit corresponded to the village Open Gardens Sunday which was an excellent opportunity to see parts of the village and views we wouldn't otherwise have seen.

Excellent position for Devon and Dorset coasts with a very good dining pub very close by. The cottage is well decorated, large for 4 people and well equipped. The west facing front garden is private and excellent for afternoon and evening sitting out.

An unusual cottage with the lounge upstairs, bright and cheerful and thoughtfully set up for visitors any-time of the year, a real home with comfortable beds and delightful modern artwork everywhere.

September 2016

We stayed for a very restful 10 days at Hayloft Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed it . The cottage is a high quality barn conversion decorated to a very good standard with plenty of artwork, decorative ornaments and country-themed knick-knacks. The beds were comfortable and we slept well. The village is beautiful with plenty of thatched cottages and a very good pub. The National Trust property Barrington Court is a must-visit and Ilminster is close by with its quaint shops and streets and also a handy Tesco’s if you need to do some shopping. We would have no hesitation in recommending Hayloft to our friends and hope to stay there again sometime.

Beware of the Wood lice!!!

Reply from Classic Cottages

We were so sorry to hear that you shared this lovely property with some unwelcome woodlice - we appreciate this was particularly troublesome as this is your own particular 'bete noire' (mine is spiders!!!), but we can happily report that the Owner has ensured that any additional visitors have been evicted.
