A fantastically well equipped comfortable property with stunning views. Enclosed garden was perfect for our lab retriever. The children loved seeing the chickens, cows & sheep. Fresh eggs available. Great location to visit Dunster, Watchet & Minehead. Definitely the best cottage on the complex.

We loved our stay at South Barn. We were the first to come after lock down restrictions lifted and so lucky. Peaceful, cosy, beautiful location. Everything we needed and wanted. Baby birds in the roof above the front door, lovely hearing them all the time. Gorgeous views of the countryside but easy drive to local villages for supplies/days out. MilRead morek and fresh eggs from the chickens on arrival was a lovely touch too and loads of cleaning products in this weird time. Thank you. Hide
