Ms Maybank November 2023
Our congratulations & thanks to the owners, this property is as good as it claims to be. The owners have prepared it with care and gone the extra mile to ensure we were comfortable & had luxury accommodation. Good choice for several bird watching locations on Somerset Levels, so perfect for a November stay.
Mr Coombe November 2023
The Old Barn is exceptional, it is very comfortable and very well equipped. The owners have put everything you need it and more.It’s a great place for a holiday anytime of the year. It has easy access to the M5 and many routes to get to many places to visit in a short time. We have just had our eleventh visit to The Old Barn and we will go back!
Mr Harrison October 2023
A perfect retreat in a perfect location. Highly recommended.
Mr Charman October 2023
A superb holiday , great location, perfect property.
Ms Bamford August 2023
Lovely property, really relaxing with wonderful views. Welcome tray of cakes/drinks and everything provided that you could need. Hosts are on hand if needed. We’ve been several times and I’m sure will visit again.
Mr Coleman July 2023
A superb environmentally barn conversation cottage. You want for nothing, the extra's in the garden are fantastic. A sauna, hot tub and barbecue, you literally want for nothing. Total relaxation is absolutely guaranteed!
Mr Abbott June 2023
Cottage is in a good location for visiting different attractions in the area. We found the cottage to be of a excellent standard and had the added bonus of a hot tub and sauna. The hosts were very welcoming and we appreciated the welcome gift pack.
Mr Broe May 2023
An excellent property very comfortable and well appointed. The owners pleft a number of extras for us which were very much appreciated. A great location for touring around the area and also very peaceful for relaxing in the garden.
Mrs Shepherd March 2023
What a fantastic place to stay. Could not fault it and we loved being so close to the levels and all the bird life there. Things we loved - comfy living area for our evenings in, warm and cosy with the underfloor heating, very comfortable bed for a peaceful night's sleep, exceptionally clean and well thought out throughout. One of the best places we have ever stayed.
Miss Beal March 2023
A return to the Old Barn after several years and it is just as fantastic as we remembered. The cottage is very well appointed - the owners have thought of everything that you might want in a rental cottage. The kitchen is very well appointed and it is a pleasure to cook in. A wonderful welcome pack including cream tea and wine - what more could you want! Beds are very comfortable, both the whirlpool bath and shower are great. Unfortunately we did not manage to use the hot tub or sauna - the days we were around it was a bit too drizzly to sit outside, but we know from out previous visit that the garden is lovely and sunny and very quiet. Location is very good - we play golf at Burnham & Berrow, which is 15 minutes away. Wedmore is a pretty village about 15 minutes away, and Wells and Glastonbury are about 30 minutes - both worth a visit. For any wildlife spotters, the Somerset Levels have lots of nature reserves and you can spend ages watching the birds - we particularly like Steart Marshes and Avalon Marches. There are also lots of walks and historic houses and gardens to visit. We have just booked our next trip to the Old Barn.
Mrs Speare February 2023
The cottage is beautiful, well equipped and the hosts were really lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There's lots to do in the area, despite being February and we found some great places to eat too.
Thanks to the owners we had a truly lovely break and could have spent hours chatting to you, in your amazing barn.
We loved the wood burner, hot tub and Sauna and the lovely music and cream tea that was waiting for is when we arrived. Thank you x
Mr Tarbox November 2022
This is a top end cottage and could thoroughly recommend it. Absolutely everything has been thought of to make for an enjoyable stay.

This was the second time we had been to this barn both times have been wonderful, the hot tub is great, the overall cleanliness is excellent, the owners both took the time to have a chat to make sure everything was good, the location is very good for the seaside and also for some very nice towns and cities.
Mrs Cervi August 2022
We could not have asked for more. Beautifully furnished property, superbly equipped, quiet location, beautiful views, the hot tub and the sauna were an extra added bonus.

Mr Williams September 2021
A great place to stay if you like peace and quiet not for city folks used to the bright lights. The barn is beautiful and well equipped, the garden is lovely with several areas of seating and a table for eating outside. Visiting Peacocks fascinating and watching the sheep from the kitchen window an added bonus. No hesitation in recommending this property.
Ms Kendall August 2021
Had an amazing weeks stay here everything is just perfect . plenty of everything from the towels to the bathrobes to the condiments in the kitchen and our arrival of a cream tea is just amazing. The hottub was a big hit with the children who raced to get in it everyday ?? Thank you so much Mr & Mrs Brown you really have an amazing Barn and is highly recommended .
Mrs Green July 2021
This is a real gem of a property in a great location. We will be booking again!
Mrs Davies July 2021
I would highly recommend this cottage/ barn for a wonderful rural stay. Although being rural you are not far from many cities, towns and pretty villages to visit, with every amenity close by. The barn was very well equipped and very comfortable, it also felt very safe visiting during these time of Covid 19. The owners were at hand for any questions and were very knowledgable about the area. Great to have the hottub and sauna for some down time.
Mrs Lewin May 2021
Superb barn conversion, spotlessly clean, in a great location for exploring Somerset. All fixtures, fittings, linen, etc, of highest quality. Everything you could wish for supplied. Welcoming but not intrusive owners. Many thanks.
Mrs Robertson December 2020
What an amazing place to stay ! The barn is perfect. It is equipped and furnished to the highest standard with every you could need. The location is equally as good. In the countryside but 5 minutes to the beach and lovely walks. The owners were really friendly and welcoming. The little extras they left were a lovely touch.

We were thrilled with our relaxing week at Cherry May Farm. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

This was our 2nd stay at this stunning property and I know it will not be our last. Such a beautiful, comfortable property. Lovely Owners, nothing was too much trouble. Loads of information in the property on what is in the local area to do and see, which is fantastic.
Mr Quinn November 2019
What a place.
It exceeded all our party's expectations. Spotlessly clean, comfortable, quiet.
Any reviews, if indeed there are some, that are negative, need to be ignored. This place is fabulous.
The personal note left along with the welcome pack, was a lovely touch, and Andrew came to visit us personally to see if were settling in ok.
A place you would book again if you were staying in the area.
Mr Hardie September 2019
Excellent cottage. Hot tub brilliant after a day s walking!
Mrs Watts August 2019
The Old Barn is truly a luxury holiday home, with no expense spared by the owners, everything is 5 star.

Everything you could wish for was there, it is so peaceful and relaxing place and within easy reach of local attractions. The little extras left by the the owners was a very special treat. We would certainly love to return in the future. Thank you once again to the owners and also Classic Cottages who made it all possible.

Mr Metcalf July 2019
The Old Barn is a real credit to the owners who clearly take a lot of pride in it. The facilities, information, presentation and attention to detail are second to none. There appears to be very little that hasn't been considered starting with the excellent welcome pack. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would welcome the opportunity to return.
Mrs Ryan May 2019
The Old Barn has every luxury you could possibly want for a holiday cottage. It is beautifully presented and all the fixtures, fittings and furnishings are of top quality. The owners, Andrew and Nicola, are most welcoming. Would certainly recommend and it would be our first choice if returning to the area.
Miss Ashcroft April 2019
You have to try is Luxury Barn to believe it. I would rate this as Excellent on all counts and everything has been done with top quality fixtures and fittings and no expense spared.

Mr Charman October 2018
Superb. Don't tell anyone!
Mr Lyons August 2018
Highly recommended barn conversion with great attention to detail by the owners such as the Plasma TV's, DVD's, private Sauna & Hot-tub. Scones, jam & a bottle of wine were there for our arrival and the handbook was very handy. There's plenty within an hour's drive to keep you entertained (Cheddar, Longleat, Bath) or a couple of nice beaches only a 3 mile drive away. Nice secluded location after a busy day's exploration and the property was very modern, clean and well-equipped. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay again.
Mr Shepherd July 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Old Barn and as other reviewers have said the cottage is very well equipped and the fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality. The cottage was ideally located and enabled us to visit places of interest with ease. We would happily recommend the cottage to friends.
Miss Beal May 2018
Our second visit to the Old Barn and it was just as good as we remembered. The cottage is superb - all of the furniture and fixtures are top quality and the conversion of the barn is fantastic. The location is great - only a couple of minutes from the M5 but on a really quiet rural road. We are already planning a visit next year.
Mrs Richardson May 2018
Overall finish of cottage was amazing, extremely well equipped, everything was of the highest standard. Very spacious, lovely garden, comfortable lounge and bedrooms, huge kitchen - all brilliant! Great location with Weston, Bridgewater, cheddar all about 20 mins away and Bristol only 40 mins away. All in all a fabulous place to stay!

Mrs Fradley March 2018
I personally didn’t stay, we booked it as a 50th wedding anniversary for my parents. They were thrilled at the cottage, said it was extremely well equipped and all the amenities were new and clean. The area is lovely and it’s great for people who have disabilities and can’t get up stairs. The owners also went out of their way to make it special by putting up gold balloons and chocolates and wine, which my parents were really grateful for. They’re already thinking of going back again next year.
Mr Van Bauwel July 2017
The Old Barn is the best cottage we visited the 3 weeks we were in Great Britain. The owner is very friendly. We will recommend this cottage to everybody!!
Miss Beal June 2017
This was the best self catering property we have stayed in over the years. The pictures do not do the barn justice - it is simply amazing. The conversion of the barn has been done to a very high standard and all of the furnishings and fixtures are top quality.
The bed was extremely comfortable, so we slept very well, just disturbed by the occasional bleat from the sheep. We spent several afternoons sitting in a hot tub in the middle of the countryside - what more could you want on holiday?
When we arrived there all the ingredients for a a cream tea waiting for us, and a welcome bottle of wine chilling in the fridge. There was a very comprehensive visitor guide containing lists of places to visit and local restaurants and shops, and also lots of up to date leaflets and maps for walking.
Even though the weather was not great during our week, the garden seems to be very sheltered, and we managed to sit outside several times and also used the barbecue on a few evenings. The barn was so nice that we only went out to eat on one evening, all the other evenings we just stayed in and catered for ourselves.
Mrs Ivey April 2017
Best equipped property we've ever stayed at.
Mrs Hughes April 2017
The photos tell the truth .
Mrs Walker April 2017
The Old Barn was a fantastic place for a relaxing holiday, beautiful countryside views, hot tub and sauna to add to the relaxation. Close to the M5, so good road links to go out exploring, Beautiful Cheddar Gorge, Wells Cathedral and National Trust places to visit. My husband went out everyday on his bike, as we are from Lincolnshire, the hills were a challenge at first but well worth it for the wonderful views. The Old Barn is a taste of luxury, it is very well equipped and beautifully furnished and the layout is brilliant. I highly recommend a stay at The Old Barn.
Mrs Carroll December 2016
Spent a wonderful Christmas in the fantastic Old Barn. Has everything you need and more. The telescope was a bonus - the sky at night was amazing. Many great places to visit on your doorstep - Cheddar, Wells, Glastonbury etc. Will definately be returning.
Mrs Perry October 2016
A fantastic place to stay. The owners have taken a great deal of care to provide a luxurious and relaxing haven. Everything is of a very high quality and every need is catered for.We certainly hope to stay there again.
Mr Campbell September 2016
It's an exceptional cottage you could not wish for anything better.
Mrs Baker February 2016
Here for our second visit and everything was clean and pristine and exactly as we remembered it and wanted it to be. A cream tea on our arrival was a lovely gesture followed by a bottle of wine in the evening care of our hosts (what lovely people). Perfect location for going to Bath, Wells or even Cribbs Causeway (junction 17 M5) if you love retail therapy. We thoroughly recommend this property and would happily return again.

Mr Long September 2015
Fantastic cottage that is now our best one we have stayed in. Andrew was so helpful and informative. Everything was high quality throughout. It was very warm and comfortable. Extremely well equipped. Information and instructions were outstanding and well thought out. A lot of attention to detail that is usually lacking in other holiday cottages. Brean Down well worth a visit. Carvery at Brent House was excellent. Breakfast at Rich's Farmhouse Cider was superb value for money. If you go to Longleat do not follow the Sat Nav post code, it does say that on the leaflet, just follow the road signs. Give yourself 2 days to see everything as there is a lot more to see than 9 years ago.
Mrs Brennan August 2015
We loved our stay here very relaxing. Enjoyed the hot tub and sauna and everything in the barn was to a very high standard.

Mrs Baker August 2013
Holiday 24th August - 31st August 2013. Absolutely Stunning Accomodation, you really could not wish for more and to top it there was tea and cake on our arrival, a tasty bottle of wine in the fridge and a 'personal' welcome by the owners. The XBOX 360 was a nice touch too. It is really conveniently placed for day trips or you could easily just stay at The Barn and enjoy and relax in all the pleasures it has to offer you. We would love to return for another visit. The Baker Family, Torquay, Devon.
Dr Banks June 2013
The quality of this accommodation is outstanding. Everything is to a very high standard and nothing is wanting. The beds are the best we've slept in away from home. The owners are to be congratulated on making a welcoming, peaceful, comfortable and desirable home from home.
Mr Chadwick June 2013
The owners tried to think of everything, they asked us, we suggested a couple of sun loungers in the garden, by teatime when we arrived back, they were in the garden for us complete with parasol. we couldn't have asked for more. the location was first class with easy access to anywhere in the area, yet completely hidden away to give peace and tranquility
Mr Scott May 2013
It looked lovely, in a rural location and situated in an area which gave easy access to places of interest. The interior of The Old Barn was tasteful, comfortable and of good quality with every possible item of household equipment provided.
Mrs Bushen May 2013
The pictures of the property do not do it justice. It totally exceeded our expectations. The facilities offerred were brillient. It is very convenient for the coast, Bristol, Exmoor and the M5.
The owners were extremely helpful and approachable. They had thought of everything and it felt like home within hours of arriving.
We would thoroughly recommend this property and hope to return at a future date.
