This accommodation exceeded our expectations, we wanted for nothing. After a long tiring journey our hostess made us very welcome, and the awaiting cream tea was most enjoyable.

What an amazing upside down barn. Beautifully converted with all the little luxuries. In a tiny hamlet overlooking the Somerset plains if you want peace and quiet then this is your place. Perfect for dogs to run around in the the orchard and field. The hosts are extremely friendly and full of all the local knowledge. Would highly recommend :)

Yew Tree barn is a great old building, beautifully converted, with lovely views across the fields. A warm welcome from our hosts for us and our dogs. Quiet, rural location, but within an easy drive of Glastonbury, Cheddar Wells and all the great places of Somerset. Thank you John & Mary.
