"Cosy little hideaway"
Lovely little cottage, peaceful location although main road runs right behind the property so not completely secluded.
The staircase to the bedroom was very narrow, not too easy if you are not steady on your feet.
Owners were very accommodating always available but never intrusive.
There are a couple of pubs and a small shop within walking distance but not too much else

"An incredible place to stay"
When we arrived we were welcomed by both the owners and inside the let was spotless, with a freshly baked cake waiting for us which was lovely after the long drive.
The barn itself is decorated to a really high standard and the extras you get like the hot tub, garden, pool and sauna really make it five stars.
The local area is gorgeous with two pubs with heavenly food within walking distance and lots of beautiful places to walk and towns to drive to.
Really couldn't have asked for a more lovely place to escape to.

"A perfect dog friendly house for two"
We stayed at the Cider Barn the first week in June and found it was everything we had been hoping for. Gill and Simon (owners) were there to meet us upon arrival and showed us around. The cider barn is perfect for 2 people and a dog. The garden is a good size and is fully enclosed.
We assumed prior to going that the hot tub was shared but were delighted when we realised we had a private hot tub - we knew we could get in it anytime and no one else would be in it. The pool is shared but the week we were there was quiet so we had it to ourselves on the two hotter days of our week.
The Cider Barn is a great base for exploring the surrounding area. We visited Bath, Cheddar Gorge, Stonehenge, Glastonbury (which is a fascinating place to sit and have a coffee and people watch). We even travelled down to the Eden Project, which is quite far but was worth the journey.
There are a few pubs approximately a mile away. Our favourite was The Devonshire Arms - the food was fantastic.
Would certainly return if looking for accommodation in that area again.
Thanks to Gill and Simon for a wonderful week.

I have just returned from a week in Cider Barn with my husband and our dog. The cottage is compact and was just right for 2 people. We cooked a few times; the kitchen has enough basic equipment. Th… More

"Lovely Little Barn with all the trimmings."
We had a lovely week stay at the Cider barn. Gill and Simon the owners are very helpful and friendly. The barn is dog friendly and has its own fenced off garden area. The sauna and hot tub were a lovely little bonus. The cottages only heating is a wood burner which kept us lovely and warm once we got the hang of it. The Cottage is within a 20 minute walk to a couple of lovely local pubs that serve really good food. There are lots of fields and lanes to go a get lost in. The cottage is in a great location with lots of lovely places to visit within one hours drive including Longleat, safari park, Cheddar Gorge, Lime Regis and Glastonbury. A Lovely place to spend a quiet week.
