Key Info

This 600 year old cruck barn has been sensitively converted into a characterful holiday home. There are two bedrooms - one with a wonderful Victorian brass kingsize bed (new base and mattress) and the other with two singles and a folding bed.

The main living/dining/kitchen area is all in one and double height - here you can sit and contemplate the ancient beams and watch the magnificent sunsets across the fields..

The Barn is in traditional rural Somerset next to a small working farm. All around there is pretty countryside with ancient hedgerows teeming with wildlife, yet we are less than 2 miles from the delightful, friendly little market town of Castle Cary that can supply all your needs.

Further details indoors

The building may be old and the furniture is also old - much of it antique- in keeping with the building but the equipment is new.

The barn is much loved by the owners and visitors alike

Further details outdoors

The patio is small and enclosed but there are open fields all around and numerous public footpaths and rights of way criss-crossing the countryside all around. We are a short stroll from a wildlife conservation area.

The West Country region

Somerset is a county in south west England that is famous for the legendary King Arthur - and Cadbury Hill Fort a few miles from us, is thought to have been the original Camelot. Traditional small farms abound - dairy cattle, and sheep farming largely and Somerset is particularly famous for its cider and its cheddar cheese - both of which are made locally. All around are interesting things to see and do, from historic houses, (such as Montacute and Lytes Cary) Castles (e.g.Nunney) and Gardens (e.g. Stourhead), Longleat house and safari park, Wookey Hole Caves, Cheddar Gorge, Wells Cathedral, Glastonbury (Abbey, Tor and Festival) and much much more. Just up the road are the wetlands famous for the production of willow baskets..

Castle Cary

The Castle from which Castle Cary gets its name disappeared in the early middle ages, since when this tiny towns prosperity has largely been derived from farming and the cloth trade. One of only 4 original horse-hair weaving factories in Europe can be found here. The town was thriving in the 15th century - when the king granted it a charter to have its own market. Cockhill - where our cottages are - was a rather grand farm. A hall-house was built and a painted chamber was added which can be visited by our guests. The barn that is our holiday cottage dates from around 1380 - part of the original settlement at Cockhill... Staying here is a joy for lovers of history and the medieval world..
