Location description from owner

The England region

Somerset's beautiful countryside has attracted many famous individuals throughout history; including Sir William Wordsworth, an English poet laureate of the 19th Century. Somerset has great historical significance, and has played a part in every period including the Roman Conquest, the Norman invasion, the War of the Roses, and even right up till the present day!Along with the rest of South West England, we have a temperate climate which is generally wetter and milder than the rest of England. The average annual sunshine totals between 1,400 and 1,600 hours.There are many tourist attractions within easy driving distance, such as the city of Bath, Stonehenge, Longleat House and Safari Park, Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole…

Corsham

Grove Barn is set within the grounds of Grove Farm, a 40 acre smallholding in the Cotswolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The surrounding area is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest. We are officially part of Wiltshire but are right on the boundary of Bath and North East Somerset.A superb local pub, The Quarryman's Arms, is only a few minutes walk from Grove Barn and is well known for its great food and fabulous views. Enthusiastic walkers will enjoy the nearby public footpaths. Only a few yards from Grove Barn's doorstep, it is possible to join the route of one of Geoff Mullett's favourite walks (author of Walk West) - a picturesque and typically English walk that will take you through sunny meadows and shady woodland high above the valley floor to give amazing views, passing the impressive Hazelbury Manor house along the way.For those interested in caves and potholing, Box also has a labyrinth of caves and tunnels to explore. Box is the location of Brunel's world famous Box Tunnel, and the impressive portal is at the boundary of Grove Farm's land and can be admired from a a viewing platform situated on the London Road.The village of Box is a very short drive away from Grove Barn (or a healthy hill walk!) and has a post office/newsagent, cafe, butchers and mini-supermarket. Box also has a pop-up cinema, the Panache Picture House, which shows at the village hall. A five minute drive away heading towards Bath is The Shed, a fabulous cafe/bistro with farm shop, deli and cider bar on the premises. Neston Farm shop is a ten minute drive away (Melksham direction) and has an artisan bakery, delicatessen, organic meat, coffee shop and a play area for children with animals to feed. The pretty medieval town of Corsham is 3 miles away and offers more shopping, places to eat and drink, as well as more to see. The unspoiled National Trust village of Lacock (where Harry Potter, Emma and Pride and Prejudice were filmed, among others) is 8 miles away and an idyllic place to visit with its beautiful Abbey and charming tearooms. A day trip to Castle Combe is also strongly recommended - it was voted the prettiest village in England and was also where Spielberg recently filmed 'Warhorse'.Bath is 5 miles away. A designated World Heritage Site, Bath is one of Britain's most beautiful and historically significant cities with breathtaking Roman, Medieval, Georgian and Victorian architecture - all within walking distance of its imposing cathedral and romantic riverside park.Bath's appeal is guaranteed to impress the most discerning of visitors; indeed the Royal Crescent, the Circus, Pulteney Bridge and the Pump Room are noted among Britain's finest architectural treasures. The city also offers an incredible range of museums, award winning restaurants, galleries, gardens, theatre and cinema within the city limits.If you're a golfer, Kingsdown Golf Club, the oldest club in Wiltshire, is only three miles from Grove Barn - a downland course measuring 6,501 yards and renowned for its beautiful scenery. Green fees are £40.Bath Golf Club, established in 1880, has one of England's oldest and finest inland courses - green fees are also £40.

“An excellent, relaxing long weekend in the perfect setting”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2015

We had a fantastic weekend at the Barn - very comfortable and generous accommodation, beautifully finished throughout. Contact with the owners was prompt and very friendly and they really have thought of everything - thank you so much.

Thank you for your generous comments. We hope to see you back at Grove Farm one day. G and F.

“stunning view, freedom and space.”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2014

We have already booked for next year, something we never do! With fields attached and woods right there, the kids and dogs were able to run free. Sitting on the terrace, sipping an early evening cocktail looking at the stunning view towards Bath made sure the grown ups were happy too! The property has been renovated to an extremely high standard. It feels spacious and light and full of lovely little luxurious touches. Giles and Fiona are perfect hosts, unbelievably accommodating and friendly, they have created the perfect family holiday home with all the delights of Bath and the Cotswolds just on the doorstep.

We thoroughly enjoyed having you all to stay at Grove Farm. Very pleased that the visit proved such a success (as well as the play)! See you very soon. G and F

“Great accommodation with fantastic views and a friendly welcome.”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2014

Not much more to be said really, but this place is all we could have wanted for the family, even though the weather wasn't particularly kind to us. Location is excellent being rural but not isolated and there is plenty to do and see within striking distance.

Hello again! Thanks so much for the review and we are delighted the family enjoyed a good break in Grove Barn. Hope to see you all soon. G and F.

“A stunning place to stay!”

Reviewed 30 Mar 2014

We were lucky enough to be able to stay at Grove Barn, for a few days. The interior of the barn is beautiful, modern and well equipped, so that you have everything you need. We took our 2 year old and 8 month old and they had lots to occupy them with the many toys kindly provided. Although the barn itself is gorgeous, the first thing you notice are the stunning views of the lovely Wiltshire countryside, which you can easily enjoy from the inside of the barn through the large panes of glass. These are enjoyed even more from the comfortable mezzanine level. We loved our stay so much that we didn't want to leave and will definitely be returning in the future.

We're delighted you and your little ones enjoyed the barn so much. Thank you for the great review and we hope to see you again soon!

“Breathtaking”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2014

We stayed at Grovebarn in late January for a long weekend. Giles & Fiona had recommended the barn as an alternative to their other lodges that were booked on the dates we required. The barn was out of this world. Beautifully presented in an idillic location. Touches like fresh eggs from their hens along with the essentials, made our stay that little more memorable. Giles & Fiona provided great communication, with recommendations of what to see and do. We could not fault a thing about our stay and will most defiantly be returning. This barn has everything you need for a holiday break away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Great pubs and restaurants near by, with a short bus ride into Bath town centre. We spent most evenings in front of the wood burning fire after long days taking in the sites of Bath. This barn has beautifully decorated bedrooms all on suite, with a split level lounge area. The upper section of the barn, perfect for relaxing whilst looking over the town, with the lower floor, with a dining area and TV room with access directly onto private grounds, including private parking.

We are delighted that you enjoyed Grove Barn so much. You are one of the first guests to stay there and it is lovely to have such great feedback! We look forward to welcoming you both back.
