Tastefully converted in 2011, The Barn holiday cottage is a small stone barn providing comfortable and cosy accommodation for two people on our seventeen acre small farm. The cottage comprises a comfortable double bedroom, luxury shower room, well equipped kitchenette with electric hob, oven, fridge and washer/dryer. There is also a sunny lounge (with TV/DVD player) and a south-west facing sun terrace where you can enjoy a glass of wine in the evening sun.

Barrow Farm is situated in the picturesque village of Rode which is 9 miles south-east of Bath and 15 minutes drive from Longleat. NT properties such as Stourhead and Dyrham Park are also a half hour drive away as well as many other visitor attractions.

Our lovely stone built farm nestles in the Frome river valley where we have our own free-range hens and a small flock of Wiltshire Horn sheep. Occasionally we may have a couple of pigs as well. We also run a very small scale PYO (so soft fruit is generally available in the Summer) and a 5 van Caravan Club CL site. There are numerous pretty walks on the doorstep including the long distance Macmillan footpath and for cyclists lots of country lanes and also the Wiltshire Cycle Way.

Rode itself has three good eating pubs within walking distance and also has a regular bus service into Bath, Frome and Chippenham. Other local towns nearby include Frome, an historic market town and the very picturesque Bradford on Avon with the Kennet and Avon canal to walk or cycle along.

The Somerset region

This area of Somerset offers rolling country side with lush valleys although becoming more wild as you get nearer to the Mendips. Picturesque stone built villages abound particularly around Bath and the outskirts of Frome and Bradford on Avon. Heading West of Frome offers lots of lanes for cycling and numerous walks in very pretty countryside. Quaint country pubs offer traditional ale, cider and generally in the area, extremely good food.

Beautiful, historic Bath and Longleat Safari Park are also close to hand and offer visitors lots to see and do. There are also many small towns to visit such as Frome, Bradford on Avon, Trowbridge and further afield, Devizes and Corsham. National Trust properties are numerous including Stourhead, Dyham Park, Lacock Abbey and smaller ones such as Westwood Manor and The Courts Gardens.

Slightly further afield lies Glastonbury and the Somerset Levels steeped in history and wildlife respectively. Salisbury and Wells, both Cathedral cities are only forty minutes drive away but well worth a visit.


Rode is a very pretty, stone built village dating back to the 1600s. It offers three pubs in walking distance, a bus service to Bath and Frome and a thriving Post Office and store. It is surrounded by pretty countryside with some lovely walks immediately on the doorstep including the long distance footpath, the MacMillan Way. The Wiltshire Cycle Way also passes through Rode taking cyclists routes along quieter roads and lanes.

Rode itself is also known for the infamous murder case back in Victorian England for which "The Suspicions of Mr Whicher" was written.

Nearby towns include the very pretty, honey coloured Bradford on Avon with plenty of tea rooms, shops, restaurants/pubs and the Kennet and Avon canal passing through. The canal offers a glorious cycle ride all the way into Bath for the more adventurous amongst us.

Quirky Frome also offers cobbled streets and interesting shops once off the main high street and again has lots of coffee shops and cafes to sample. The Frome Festival (July) offers lots of entertainment and music and is well worth investigating.
