We were thrilled with our relaxing week at Cherry May Farm. The owners were very friendly and helpful. They had clearly gone the extra mile with thoughtful touches, a lovely welcome pack and the barn was spotlessly clean. The hot tub and sauna were a great treat! Everything was extremely high quality and we've already recommended to friends. Great location for exploring Somerset. Thank you so much, it was just what we needed!

August 2020

Excellent property with lovely outlook and very welcoming hosts.

Lovely cream tea and a bottle of wine on arrival was a very appreciated touch.

Will certainly be booking again.

February 2020

What a lovely house with everything considered by the owners. The welcome pack was so thoughtful and we really relaxed and enjoyed the house, hot tub and the x box (this was a hit with our 11 year old son)

November 2019

The Old Barn is a excellent property. It is equipped to a high standard and is very comfortable. We have stayed there eight times now and we will go back again!

November 2019

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.

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.

September 2019

Excellent cottage. Hot tub brilliant after a day s walking!

August 2019

The Old Barn is truly a luxury holiday home, with no expense spared by the owners, everything is 5 star. We had a lovely weeks holiday, which made extra special by the sauna and hot tube in the private garden. 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.

A beautiful property and the owners have thought of everything that you might need. A good location to explore Somerset. We had a very chilled week! Would definitely recommend.

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.

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.

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.

This is by far one of the best holiday cottages we’ve stayed in. The location is stunning and the high level of equipment provided and the quality of furnishings and finishes are second to none. Nothing has been left to chance, the owners really have thought of everything you could possibly need - a real credit to them. We will most definitely return as soon as we can!

A really luxurious break!

February 2019

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.

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.

October 2018

Superb. Don't tell anyone!

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.

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.

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.

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!

April 2018

Truly terrific cottage!! A must stay for all the luxuries!!!

April 2018

Modern property that complete spoils you.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

April 2017

Best equipped property we've ever stayed at.

April 2017

The photos tell the truth .

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.

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.

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.

September 2016

It's an exceptional cottage you could not wish for anything better.

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. The Baker Family, Torquay. 13.02.16-20.02.16

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.

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.

July 2015

This is a truly stunning house with everything you could wish for. Book it now, you will not regret it!

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.

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!

5 star accommodation. Excellent equipped kitchen. Very comfortable beds. Owners very helpful but also left us alone.

September 2014

If this barn were duplicated in every county, we could holiday around the UK forever.

July 2014

This is a beautfully converted Barn with quality decorations and furnishings. There was everything we could think of we needed.

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!

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!

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.

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!!

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.

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

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.

September 2013

The pictures do not do the property justice the old barn really is superb everything about this property is class.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
