Fantastic barn with heated swimming pool, private hot tub and sauna

The barns are located in the countryside with a deck and covered private hot tub where you can relax or watch the local wildlife, or maybe amble along the footpaths to one of the 3 pubs all serving fantastic food, beer and cider. The main barn has 4 bedrooms a huge lounge large enough for the whole group and a double height kitchen where everyone can sit down to eat (table seats 15). The Apple barn which is a stones throw away provides another 2 bedrooms and shower room with own lounge and kitchen, Outside there is a fully enclosed heated swimming pool (May to Sept up to 28 degrees) located in a walled garden.

About Gill Rickards

Hello, my name is Gill, having worked many years as a senior Corporate Executive I retired 4 years ago to set up my own business hosting guests. We have designed, renovated and furnished all our houses ourselves and its a full time job to make sure they are always perfect when our guests arrive. I have three sons, one working, one at University and one still at school plus Simon my husband and two dogs called Daysy and Buster. We live on site so we can make sure we are always there if guests need us but invisible if they don't. We have a team of people who all make sure that the barns are everything you would want them to be, from Penny our housekeeper who has been with us 9 years to Kirsty who looks after all the admin.

Gill Rickards purchased this barn in 2006

Family 40th birthday celebrations

  • 5 of 5

There was 13 of us staying in Thresher Barn and Apple Cottage for our sons 40th birthday we had 4 children with us under 11.

We had a great time with plenty of room to all sit comfortably and do our thing!!

Gill the owner was very helpful telling us about walks and places of interest.

Some of our party enjoyed the hot tub on a number of occasions.

We found our stay very relaxing and would be happy to return on another

occasion.

Met all our expectations.

  • 4 of 5

The property and its facilities met our expectations and were enjoyed by all ages, The manager showed us round in a friendly fashion. The only glitch was the failure of the main dishwasher which couldn't be fixed over our w/e stay. I would happily recommend this property. Glastonbury tor was the only outing and provided exercise and good views.

Ticks most boxes for a large group

  • 4 of 5

Party of 13 of all ages found plenty of room and good facilities to enjoy whatever the weather.

It was the end of the summer season, but a little more proactive previsit check on the big dishwasher would have avoided this not working. Everyone enjoyed the recreational facilities.

Would one happy to recommend this property and all it has to offer.

Fantastic facilities, low key relaxed atmosphere with hwlp on site if needed.

  • 4 of 5

Spent a week as three young families in the Threshing and Apple Barns for 6 adults abd 6 kids. The facilities at the barn were great and both the adults and the kids had a great time. We had our own hot tub, with access to shared swimming pool and sauna where there was little competition. We used the barns to slob in for a couple of days and then as a base to travel to Lyme Regs, Cheddar Gorge and a couple of parks. Great welcome from Gill, automatically felt relaxed, we utilised the BBQ we hired which was great, gas ran out and Gill's husband was very quick to nip out ad replace this so handy to have access to the owner on site, however we never felt looked upon and hardly saw them. Dewposit was returned within 24 hours so very efficient. My only constructive comment would be the mattersses on the double beds (particularly in Threshers barn) were unsupportive and the rooms became hot quite quickly so could have been better for sleeping, however this didn't stop us enjoying the stay.

Very good

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights for a work trip. 9 adults and one baby. We really enjoyed the stay. Gill left a cake waiting for us when we arrived which was a very nice touch. The house and sauna etc were great. The location is really good. The two pubs in easy walking distance were very different, but both well worth a visit. For the more athletic amongst us there were convenient paths and nice scenery for running. The village shop and the close distance to Somerton for a supermarket, butchers means everything is very convenient. We'd be very happy to return.
