I would recommend this barn again if you love peace and quiet as I do. Its close to various locations for foods and thankfully lacks to many tourists but then it was June not July schools-out period. So much space around you and loved it.

Lovely cottage with beautiful views of the countryside, not too far at all into the local town of Wellington. Plenty of towels available for both showering and hot tub use which was great. Kitchen supplies basic compared to some cottages stayed at, need to take everything for cooking such as oil and pepper. Great stay overall.

A lovely little cottage with a lovely view. Not the cleanest especially if your not use to dog hair & smell. Great location with takeaway places, garden centres and town near. Really appreciated the little touches around the cottage including towels for the hot tub. The hot tub wasn't the best but was still lovely looking at the amazing view.

Fantastic location! Feels like you're in the middle of nowhere but Wellington is only 5 minutes away. Outstanding views from the hot tub which was ready to use when we arrived. Nice touch with the welcome pack and the bottle of wine in the fridge. Everything was thought of including dishwasher tablets which I had forgot. Nice and safe for dog to waRead morender around as there's a gate to keep them from going onto the road. Cosy and compact but airy & not cramped. Hope to return next year. Recommended Hide

Had a wonderful stay, property was very clean and comfortable and ideally located for us to explore the west country.

Absolutely fantastic time away. Very clean when we arrived. Owners were great to leave us to have total privacy with no interruptions. Such a lovely peaceful area, tucked away but easy to find with a sat nav. Would definitely recommend! hot tub lovers - it is a low power one so in cold weather it drops heat fairly swiftly, fine if used for short peRead moreriods but for us that likes to use them for a decent time period its not suitable as it drops heat quickly, and even faster if using jets.

A very lovely cottage, perfect for a peaceful getaway. The hot tub was lovely and much appreciated after a day out and about, its also very private. The only very slight negative is that the garden area is not fully enclosed so we couldn't allow our dog off his lead as he's not trustworthy yet! Nothing a tied up long line couldn't fix though.
