“a comfortable, well equipped cottage in a beautiful and peaceful spot”
This is one of the best holiday cottages that I've stayed in, and I've already booked my next stay here. It is thoughtfully and tastefully furnished and equipped with everything needed for a stay. Sarah offers a warm welcome, and is there to help out if needed. At the same time there's a high degree of privacy and peace. The location is gorgeous, and the village has lots to offer. I look forward to exploring more next time.
“Perfect Holiday Cottage”
The Barn is a truly delightful and well appointed cottage on a 17 acre farm (once a Frenchman's snail farm!) set in a lovely location. In fact the farm is most conveniently located for visiting Frome and other lovely towns, and also numerous National Trust properties around West Wiltshire and East Somerset. It was very peaceful indeed and we were lulled off to sleep each night by gently baa-ing sheep and the odd hooting owl. Many thanks, Sarah. We had a most comfortable stay. Loved the shower and the crispy towels. The highlights included the daily 'hen party' when 6 very friendly chickens came and joined us on the terrace. We also dined very well on several evenings at The Mill, which is less than 5 minutes walk away (turn left out of the drive and head down hill). It was so good that we didn't venture any further to eat in the evenings. They do a superb (huge) fish & chips but you will need to book a table Fri to Sun. We would recommend heading out to Stourhead for a whole day, as it must be the NT's best property - wonderful views from the lakeside, fascinating history of the house and family (see what happens when several generations of first cousins marry!), good NT shop and great lunches in the restaurant (get in early as it's popular). We were warned that at the mo Dyrham Park is under renovation so not much to see there. Avebury is a must, too, and don't miss out Avebury Manor House which is right by the standing stones. The BBC furnished and equipped it for one of their programmes, which means visitors are allowed to sit on the chairs and put on the costumes to be photographed in, which was great fun indeed. Lovely kitchen equipped as per the Edwardian era. You can even have a go on the repro Georgian (bouncing) exercise chair in the dining room. No teasels on the chairs at this place. Westwood House (NT) is a lovely place to explore too - small and lovely, with great views, ideal for a short visit if you're passing that way. Crewkerne is great for antique and collectibles shops. Devizes is a lovely old town too - check out Jack Spratts for the most amazing range of pies (vegetarians will love the 'Heidi' pie, as did I). Caen Locks on the Avon & Kennet canal is a fascinating and stunningly photogenic spot (not marked on any maps, oddly), but don't bother driving up to the lock head, where you have to pay to park, the cafe doesn't open until 1030 am and the view isn't great. Follow the signs for the lock bottom, a little further along the main road, and try to find a place to park briefly just to take a photo uphill. There are 28 locks close to each other, which enable barges to descend or ascend over 200 feet in 2.5 miles. It can take a narrow boat 2 hours to do this on a quiet day, or up to 5 hours on a busy day. Places to avoid: Shepton Mallett and Trowbridge. back in Rode, just a short walk, turn right out of the farm's drive, is Langham Place (formerly *Road Hill House), scene of the infamous 19th century murder of the child Francis Kent, for which killing his sister Constance Kent was sentenced to death. It's a privately owned house now so not possible to visit, but fascinating to gawp at all the same. *Rode used to be spelled 'Road'.
