We're elated to hear how very personable and helpful the owner was. We hope you had a lovely holiday at Oak Tree Barn and we can't wait to welcome your return. Meg, Customer Support

Enjoyed our week in this property which is well equipped and handy for visiting the Mendips and Quantocks. It was lovely to have a patio and garden too.

This is a fantastic accommodation in a beautiful setting. The owners really have thought of everything. The kitchen is very well stocked with crockery, pans, utensils etc. There is a cupboard full of board games, a fantastic chess table and most importantly the wifi connection was great so no moaning teenagers! The beds were very comfy and the fire made the cottage really cosy. The garden was completely fenced in so the dog could potter round on his own without the worry of him disappearing. would not hesitate in staying here again and would recommend it to anybody looking to stay in the area.

A beautiful cottage in peaceful surroundings.

A lovely cottage in rural location within easy driving distance of north and south Somerset/Dorset coasts. Very peaceful and private.

Delightful character cottage overlooking butttercup fields in rural location. Ideal young families and dogs.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in November for his birthday ,it is beautiful property the wood burner and blankets made for a cozy stay ,we'll definitely be coming back maybe in the summer for longer to take advantage of the walking opportunities in the area ....

We loved our stay, Emily was a wonderful host, the barn is lovely and it makes a great base for biking or walking in the Quantocks.

Lovely setting. Plenty of space including private and secure garden.

A lovely cottage with good sized enclosed garden (not suitable for doggy jumpers/escape artists). A well equipped kitchen and welcome tray, lounge with, small tv, wifi. books and games, beautiful bedrooms with comfy beds and bedding (ground floor twin and a mezzanine with double bed, no door if privacy an issue), good sized ground floor bathroom with bath and shower above. Well located 5 mins from M5 and A38. We have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.

My son and myself had a great time at Oak Tree Barn. I would recommend Classic Cottages to anyone that likes quality cottages. Over the years we have had a good number of them and every one has been excellent. S Topping

A lovely place. Clean , well-equipped. Friendly helpful owners. A wonderful setting, not only the large garden but also access to a paddock area filled with daffodils and bird song. Our dog loved it. The Maypole Inn close by does a wonderful carvery and take away. The food was well packed and hot. Lynton and Lynmouth outstanding well worth a visit. Thank you.

A lovely barn conversion in an ideal location for visiting Somerset. Everything needed and more We found in the barn, our reaction was Wow when we first entered the barn. We have both said there will be a return trip on the cards to Oak tree barn.

Beautuful cottage lovely location had everything we needed for a relaxing break. Our hosts were friendly and most helpful lovely welcome pack with delious locally baked cake and treats for the dogs. Our two dogs loved the enclosed garden and access to the orchard and fields was a added bonus. We will certainly be booking again

It was a very beautiful cottage in a wonderful location. Great mix of rural location with convenient access to local towns and attractions. A very calming environment. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Oak Tree Barn was a comfortable, well thought out and equipped holiday cottage. Good linen, plenty of towels and hot water as well as a good kitchen. The garden was superb, private and dog friendly. The location is quiet and extremely peaceful yet easily accessible to the delightful Quantock Hills, Taunton, Hestercombe and Porlock Weir (to name a few!) Hauser and Wirth Nr Bruton is truly worth a visit - very special! Emily was kind and provided good local knowledge and the fresh flowers and local cake were a welcome treat.

We LOVED our time at Oak Tree Barn. It is in such a glorious position, with so many walks to do from the house and no need to have to get in the car for days on end. There were horses grazing in the field next door, we used the tennis court which was a great asset and being able to walk to the pub in the evening was an extra bonus. I would highly recommend this gem and Emily was incredibly helpful and on call if we needed anything at all, which we really didnt!

Fantastic place, well equipped and Emily was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back. also the dogs loved it.

Lovely cottage, peacefull area with friendly owners would recommend to other families.

Emily was a great host we had a great family weekend break with good location for day trips

Very welcoming and friendly service made this beautiful barn conversion a joy to stay in. Very cosy in late December and must be fantastic in spring or summer as it’s surrounded by fields, trees and hedges.

It certainly sounds like you had a wonderfully cosy and festive time at Oak Tree Barn and we hope to see you again soon. Bryony, Customer Support

An excellent week in a very comfortable cottage. The two dogs had a wonderful time on their walks. The Maypole pub which was quite near was very good food and value for money.

We throughly enjoyed our stay & would go again. Such a well equipt cottage & a fab welcome with flowers, cake, milk & dog treats.

Lovely cottage, p!entry of room ,lovely enclosed garden for the dog who loved it! Would recommend it to family and friends, everything you needed in kitchen.

Oak Tree Barn was perfect for us and our dogs - lots of space for everyone and the enclosed garden was ideal for the dogs to run and play. The owner was very helpful and on hand all week to answer the odd question we had and we had a great holiday. Lovely village and locals with plenty of amenities nearby. Would highly recommend!

A lovely property. The Owner is lovely too and doesn't encroach but is only a call away. Our 2 little dogs loved the safe pretty garden to investigate. Such a peaceful place... I've never slept so well.

Beautiful barn conversion. Enjoyed watching the birds in the morning whilst still in bed.

Lovely cottage, well equipped and relaxing location.

We were only in Oak Tree Barn for 4 nights but it was so nice that I am already trying to work out when we can go back. We all loved it there!

Off the beaten track, yet still within a stones throw of the towns of Taunton and Bridgwater, the Barn is an ideal base to explore Somerset. The accommodation is warm and cosy, and the garden is great for the dog (although he was a little too keen to "make friends" with the horses, fox and pheasants in the paddock). The hosts (Emily and her husband) could not be friendlier or more efficient. Not our first time here, and definitely not our last.

I would recommend oak tree barn as a perfect comfortable base from which to Explore Somerset .

As mentioned Oak Tree Barn is the perfect place to relax, quiet surroundings, local walks and great base to get out and about. Would highly recommend.

Lovely clean property in excellent surroundings, lovely touches such as fresh flowers , fruit cake and treats for the dog even his own doggie towel , friendly owners and very informative, couldn’t fault anything.

The owners are to be congratulated on providing such a first class cottage, excellent facilities and by adding those personal touches. Keep up the good work and high standards

A cosy, comfortable cottage in a friendly village location. Dog walks from the doorstep, with plenty more nearby, and horses next door made it perfect!

We were made to feel very welcome by our host, Emily, and also the friendly locals we met on dog walks.

Gardens were private and not overlooked with lots of wildlife.

A great week away from it all.

Had a lovely time even though we were snowed in for a day. Enjoyed the wood burner. Hope to be back again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Oak Tree Barn, the location is very quiet, the Cottage is well equiped and comfortable. The tennis court was ideal and so were the meadow and walk around the small hamlet. Our dog enjoyed the safe fenced garden and walks. We will go back soon and stay there again.

Lovely, homely cottage in a fairly rural area with a very useful, secure garden which our dogs enjoyed.

Lovely location and peaceful surroundings. Ideal for a break in this area

Ideal for dog-owners, fantastic garden and footpaths, lovely and light cottage and wonderful area.

Excellent place to stay. very comfortable and clean. Hosts very helpful and friendly. Nice welcome pack. Peaceful place. Easy access to hills for walking. Stayed as family of 4. Plenty of room.

A little dated but would not stop us booking again.

Very accommodating owners, nothing too much trouble, rearranged the cleaner to facilitate a late checkout, which really made our short break feel like a holiday! Very much appreciated. Cottage perfect for a holiday with dog, lovely enclosed garden. Great tennis court and lovely welcoming touches with tea, coffee, milk and biscuits and wood for a fire the first night. Recommended and would love to come back to explore more of the local area again.

Lovely barn conversion is a beautiful rural setting. Very relaxing time had by all.
