Lovely barn conversion in a nice and quiet setting. Very well equipped and comfortable for a few days or for a week. We stayed with a 1 year old and 3 year old and it worked well.

Just home from a week at Gripp Barn, what a lovely house, hot tub was a hit with the kids. Great location, 20 min from Bath/Bristol, so much to see and do. Will definitely be returning.

What a wonderful barn conversion this is! Claire and Rich have it spot on and have clearly thought of everything. The closest pub was more of a 'locals' pub but if you walk further up the hill there is a better one with lovely food. A good base to visit the surrounding area and attractions.

Great base for visiting Somerset. The barn has all you need plus much more. Lovely comfy beds although the 2 single ones are small. Great hosts who really can't do enough for you, the cake and fizz on arrival was a lovely touch and fresh flowers. The hot tub was just great to relax in after a day's sight seeing.
