Lovely cosy property and friendly helpful hosts. Farm setting peaceful and relaxing. Ideal base for visiting various attractions in Somerset and Wiltshire, walking distance from Frome, an interesting, alternative market town. Pub, opposite, local and welcoming. Hope to visit again.

We loved our stay at the old cow shed. Ian and Kate were so welcoming and friendly which really made the stay extra special. The kids loved helping with the chickens at night and feeling free to walk around the farm. The Old Cow Shed has been renovated so beautifully and we all felt completely at home there. Cant wait to go again some day

If you book this property you will not be disappointed. Kate & Ian cant do enough to make your stay even better, fresh eggs every morning if you want them, plenty of advice if needed if you need ideas of where to visit. The property as everything you require all you need is your case & yourself.

The old cowshed has been beautifully converted into a family & dog friendly cottage with independent wheelchair access. The owners Kate & Ian have put lots of thought & effort into making the cottage feel homely with fresh flowers, milk, freshly laid eggs & a bottle of wine left out for our arrival. I learned to cook on the fabulous Aga & there wasRead more a cosy log burner as well for use in colder weather although the heat from the Aga was fine for us. The old cow shed gets a big thumbs up from us all Hide

The cottage was lovely and clean. The beds were really comfortable and we slept with the windows open all night. It felt so safe because of the electric gates. There was lots of space to unpack the car and the two ramps to each door was great. I loved the wet rooms. The arga was lovely and warm in the kitchen.
