The England region

Within an hour you can vist 2 coasts, the towns of Bristol and Bath, Stonehenge, Glastonbury Tor, Cheddar Gorge, undiscovered villages like Somerton and Langport with their fantstic local shops and cafes. You can walk along the Yeo or the Parrett or hire cycles and bike along quiet lanes.

Glastonbury

The Barn is located in the picturesque village of Long Sutton with its blue lias houses, a church, pub and shop located around the village green. Within 1 mile there are 2 other pubs, one being regarded as the best in Somerset. Within 20 minutes you can visit Glastonbury with its Tor, Abbey and unusual shops and restaurants, Street with its Factory outlet shopping, several wildlife sanctuaries, langport, Somerton, multiple National Trust houses and open gardens, Haynes Motor Museum, The Fleet Air Arm Museum etc etc. The area is also full of local Cider Farms that can be visited(& sampled) as well as a farm shop within a mile, a local smokery and several local butchers, greenbrocers and delis.

“Great little retreat for a cosy weekend away!”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2015

Lovely little place in a great part of the word, at a great price too. Accommodation was great, and Gill the owner very friendly and helpful. Can't fault it - just be aware that the internal stairs are quite steep and narrow (but we didn't have any issues as we took care on them) and we couldn't get any wifi in the barn, but that isn't really why you come away is it?! Loved it!

“Lovely accommodation in a beautiful area of the country.”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2015

We have just returned from holidaying at the Cider Barn, we stayed for 4 nights Monday to Friday. Communication with the owner prior to the trip was excellent and as we were travelling with an 8 month old baby a travel cot, baby bath and high chair was arranged for us- making life a lot easier! Upon our arrival Gill greeted us and showed us around the place, where the pool was, how to work the hot tub. There was even cake on the table which was lovely after a long trip! (We drove from Hull) The barn was spotlessly clean, and even though it is dog friendly accommodation, there was no evidence of this. Again, great when you have little one rolling around the place! It is tastefully decorated and has everything you would need, an extensive kitchen itinery, iron etc. We were lucky to get a few warm days and so made use of the pool, another family where staying at the same time with older children and they had so much fun in and out of the pool and hot tub. There is a larger property available to rent which really is a great place for families. the cider barn is more suited to adults as the stairs up to the bedroom area are quite steep- not a problem for us with the little one though as she cannot walk or crawl yet! The area itself is in a quiet village location, so is so peaceful at night. It is not too far away from things to do though. We visited Glastonbury, Clarks village in Street which is a designer outlet (rainy day!) Langport which has a supermarket and is only a 5 minute drive away. Longleat Safari was a 50 minute drive away but was a fantastic day out and well worth the money. We also visited Bath- gorgeous city! Would recommend a picnic in the gardens along the river Avon. Overall we had a short but very busy and great stay! We would love to come back in the cooler weather as I imagine it would be so pretty in Autumn and could make more use of the log burner!

“Perfect setting”

Reviewed 1 Jun 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Perfectly situated in the heart of Somerset, you could (and we pretty much did) spend a week just exploring the places within a 10 miles radius (inc Somerton, Glastonbury and Langport). Easy walks direct out of the barns onto the levels, full of birdlife and even deer. Pubs are walkable too, though are a decent walk and the footpaths can get overgrown (passable in May, but would imagine some bits would be very overgrown come mid-summer). The barn itself is perfect for a couple. Log burner makes for cosy evenings, kitchen well-equipped, has a BBQ, and the garden is private. The other two barns with guests are close-by but never really heard them as the barns are so well insulated (also the entire site is powered by solar panels, so perfect for Eco travellers!). The only slight downside is the lack of internet and phone reception (needed to walk out the barn a bit to get 3G - though am sure this differs by network), and the hot-tub isn't part of the Cider Barn setting but is the other side of the shared swimming pool, so isn't as private as you might imagine when booking. But that doesn't stop me from rating as 'excellent', because the setting, atmosphere, and wonderful hosts, all made for an idyllic stay.

Excellent barn accommodation, lovely peaceful surroundings excellent facilities private hot tub sauna gym equipment etc Very friendly welcome from Gill for whom we have nothing but praise We shall definitely be returning and hope to enjoy the outdoor pool We can highly recommend a holiday in one of the barns

“Cosy little hideaway”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2014

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”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2014

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”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2014

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.

“Lovely Little Barn with all the trimmings.”

Reviewed 4 May 2014

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.
