Godney is part of the Levels & Moors, deep in the heart of Somerset; an ancient and fragile landscape steeped in history, archaeology and wildlife. It is central to four National Nature Reserves in a wetland area of international importance and is part of the National Cycle Network. Examples of wildlife commonly seen in the area include buzzards, roe deer, lapwings, grey herons, barn owls, egrets, kingfishers, swallows, starlings by the million (seriously), otters and nesting swans. This spot is great for festivals and many cultural events in the area (see below). We have big sunsets, dark, starry skies, and barn owls in the garden at night!


If you do not own a car, a horse, a boat or a bicycle you will have to walk, which some people do, as there is no public transport available in the village :o)

"Clean, Quiet and Full of Character"

We loved our stay at the Riverbarn, I went with my partner and we also took our dog. We liked the fact the property had a garden with a lovely river at the bottom, also looking out onto farming fields… More

Thank you both for your lovely review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and that you loved the area. We appreciated your feedback that a microwave and freezer would have been helpful and are pleased to say that the property now has both! At least we have a microwave and frezer compartment in a new fridge! :) Thanks again. Hope to see you another time. regards, Annie & John
