It is a special place to stay, very comfortable, cosy, clean and extremely well equipped. Our hosts made every effort to make us feel welcomed and relaxed.
Mrs Webb January 2019
This beautiful property is as clean and well maintained as the day it opened and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. 2 highlights - the cathedral city of Wells and The White Horse at Mark.

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 Harvey April 2018

Mrs Burke April 2018
Modern property that complete spoils you.
Mrs Tiley March 2018
This cottage is of a very high standard both decor and equipment are outstanding. The cottage is in easy reach of so many tourist attractions as well as some beautiful walks. We will be returning again.
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 Atkins July 2015
This is a truly stunning house with everything you could wish for. Book it now, you will not regret it!
Mr Laing July 2015
We have lived in various cottages all over the UK, this one by far is the best one we have ever lived in. Thank you..Well worth the 470 mile journey to get there.
Mr Mitchell November 2014
We have now enjoyed 3 visits in the last 3 years to the Old Barn at Cherry May Farm - it's just wonderful!
Please say a very big thank-you once again to Andrew & Nicola Brown for allowing us to enjoy their beautiful property - they leave nothing to chance - just fantastic!
We will return!

Mrs Reynolds October 2014
5 star accommodation. Excellent equipped kitchen. Very comfortable beds. Owners very helpful but also left us alone.
Mrs Read September 2014
If this barn were duplicated in every county, we could holiday around the UK forever.
Mr Phillips July 2014
This is a beautfully converted Barn with quality decorations and furnishings. There was everything we could think of we needed.
Mrs Sawyerr June 2014
This is by far the best holiday cottage we have ever rented. When we arrived we were greeted with a tea tray with cake, with a welcome note letting us know there was milk and a chilled bottle of wine in the fridge. If you have mobility problems this is the place for you, everything is on one level and you park your car no more than 6 steps from the front door. Don't think about booking it….BOOK IT!
Mrs Swan May 2014
perfect holiday cottage, the best we have stayed in. Beautifully renovated and every last detail thought of. Peaceful, quiet location. I recommend it!
Mr Carr May 2014
This is a fantastic barn conversion. I have stayed in accommodation all over the south west with Classic Cottages but this was in a league of its own. The very welcoming owners have thought of everything. Thank you.
Mrs Harrison April 2014
This cottage is fantastic in every way.. location, accommodation, the owners are really friendly and helpful, the hot tub and sauna are great, and my boys love the Xbox!!

Mr Coombe November 2013
The old Barn at Cherry May Farm is a very comfortable place to stay. It is a high quality barn conversion . It is well furnished and well equipped everything you need. The Garden is very well set out. There are many places to go to from the barn all year round.
Miss Rogerson November 2013
Our stay at the old Barn was absolutely fantastic and I couldn't have wished for a better property to relax and unwind in. Very well located and the surrounding area provides entertainment for all interests. The standard of finish internally was amazing and the hot tub and sauna, an added bonus. I will certainly be back.
Mr Craske October 2013
This cottage is wonderful. It is exactly the same as the pictures in the brochure. Many little touches which make all the difference. Sauna and hot tub are a added bonus. we would not hesitate to recommend this cottage
Mrs Farrell October 2013
The Old Barn was very comfortable and well equipped, in a lovely location with easy access to surrounding attractions. Owners Nicola and Anthony were very welcoming and helpful. We had a brilliant holiday with every possible need catered for.
Mr Brown September 2013
The pictures do not do the property justice the old barn really is superb everything about this property is class.
Mrs Willis September 2013
The Old Barn was definitely in our opinion worthy of a 5 Star Plus Rating - one of the best properties we have visited. The quality of the furnishings and attention to detail in every aspect were all first class. Highly recommended.
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.
