We had a relaxing week at Bolts Barn . The barn is cosy warm and well equipped with good quality equipment , furniture and bedding. There are amazing views over the Quantock Hills and you are situated in a very quiet location . However there are many places of interest in a relatively short distance . On the mezzanine floor there are 2 single beds Read morewhich was useful as after having major surgery I was pleased that my husband could leave the double bed to me. Nice welcome pack left. Hide
