Overview

About the property

Located on a traditional farmstead in the beautiful Blackmoor Vale, sleeps 6

Courtyard Barn at Lois Farm is perfect for holidays with your family or friends. If you are looking for relaxation and tranquillity in a peaceful rural setting overlooking farm land this lovely barn is for you. Situated in the beautiful Blackmore Vale on the border of Somerset and Dorset there are many well-known places to visit close by for all ages. We have horses and ponies with cattle and sheep in the fields during the summer. We are family friendly with baby equipment available to borrow, toys and a safe fenced garden. There is a large games room with table tennis and table football. In the colder months light the wood burner for cosy evenings in. The barn still retains many of the original features.

Lois Farm is located in the beautiful Blackmoor Vale on the border of Somerset and Dorset, accessed by a quiet country lane and surrounded by stunning countryside. We are only few miles south of Wincanton and ideally placed to visit many well-known attractions including Glastonbury, Longleat, Wookey Hole, Wells, Fleet Air Arm Museum, Hayes Motor Museum, Sherborne and many beautiful National Trust properties and gardens.

The barn has recently been fully refurbished and will comfortably sleep 6 (plus cots) in three double bedrooms one of which is downstairs. All bedrooms have zip and link beds so can be set-up as either super kings or twins. We use only fine Egyptian cotton for linen and provide towels and bathrobes.

The modern and well-equipped kitchen/diner has cream shaker-style units luxurious granite work surfaces and a slate floor. It is very well equipped including an American style fridge/freezer. The double doors open onto the patio with views over farmland.

The lovely south facing patio and garden overlooking fields is ideal for al-fresco meals, relaxing in the evening sunshine and watching the sunset. In the winter the wood burner makes the living room a warm and cosy place to be, we provide all the logs and everything you need to light the fire.

Great place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in a very quiet location backing onto fields with its own private garden.

Everything inside was immaculately clean and tidy, no sticky glasses or cutlery! The hosts were very friendly and helpful.

We had great weather and the barn really did look as good as it does in the photos.

Handy for the stunning Stourhead National Trust property.

Overall it was a great place to spend a relaxing weekend.
