This semi-detached stone cottage has been renovated to a high standard whilst retaining its original wooden beams giving it that cottage feel.

Surrounded by the idyllic countryside of Somerset, the cottage is situated within a peaceful, unspoilt village with a family pub, Post Office/general store and children's play area on the village green. There is a vast choice of country walks from your doorstep and cycle routes to enjoy and explore. This cottage is an ideal holiday base to explore south Somerset and Dorset's many attractions including the famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast, as well as the excellent beaches of Charmouth and Lyme Regis which are around a twenty-five minute drive. Just four miles away is the market town of Chard which has a wide variety of shops, interesting buildings and is well served with places to eat and drink.

We had a brilliant holiday at Barrack Cottage. It was a home from home. In a rural setting . Very relaxing but a good location for the coast, Devon , Dorset and Somerset. Parking for one car outside but further spaces to be found nearby. Plan to visit again hopefully the coronavirus will not be around for our next visit.

Booked holiday as a sewing retreat for myself and 2 friends. Cottage suited our needs perfectly plenty of room round kitchen table for machines and a cosy sitting room for hand sewing. Garden was a sun trap so could eat outside which we appreciated. All in all perfect long weekend. Thank you to Julie for not only the cleanliness but her help.

We had a wonderful time at Barrack cottage. The cottage itself was spotless, had a wonderful homely feel and was lovely and spacious! Very comfortable beds and fab hot showers, it was a home from home! The garden was a fab size for the kids and backed into allotments so was wonderfully peaceful. The location was picturesque, in a gorgeous little viRead morellage, but only a 30Min walk from the stunning Forde abbey gardens and a 30 min drive to beaches in both Dorset and Devon on the Jurassic coast!

Very relaxing. Not much going on around in the winter but I imagine the summertime is quite different. We enjoyed just being in the cottage with friends.
