About Fiona and Gary Sweet

Gary and Fiona would like to welcome you to Park Farm Country Cottages. Gary is a third generation of the Sweet family to farm here, the farm was a mixed beef, dairy and arable farm but now we concentrate on arable with grass made into hay for horses.

Why Fiona and Gary Sweet chose Chew Magna

There are two cottages, one was originally a barn, believed to be over 200 years old and had been recently been used as a stable. The Dairy cottage was formally a milking parlour, both cottages were converted in 2008 and finished to a very high standard retaining the character of the original building.

What makes this cottage unique

Lovely views from both cottages and walks from the doorstep.

Chew Magna is less than 2 miles away and was voted best village in Britain by Sunday Times 2011.

The Michelin Star Pony and Trap Gastro Pub is just outside of Chew Magna, booking recommended.

Very close to Bristol and great for visiting Bath and Wells.

What a great place this is! We were bowled over by this cottage; its style, layout, decor, equipment, everything about it was second to none. The friendly owners have thought of absolutely everything and the fresh eggs, a delicious homemade cake and local apple juice were a thoughtful touch too. It's location is also superb with great views and walks on the doorstep. There's also a trampoline and slide and space galore for little ones to run around. Great find. Thoroughly recommend! Also Sunday roast lunch at The Druids is a great idea; the food was excellent and the staff really accommodating ( esp with our 2 yr old granddaughter). Fab homemade desserts too, but book well in advance! For a casual lunch Salt and Malt on the Chew Magna lake was also an excellent choice. Great stay. Would be nice to go back.

Family Break

Delightful stay in the Barn for a week - well situated for family touring and ample walks locally as well - Local Farm Dog "Woodie" was a big hit with the Kids as was the open areas for ball games etc. Owners Gary and Fiona always available if required for questions and to update our knowledge of farm activities.

Perfect stay near Chew Magna

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the beautifully renovated and decorated Barn was perfect. Charming, spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortable with rural views across rolling hills from the terrace where we ate breakfast and had evening drinks. We (two couples) arrived after three weeks of traveling to warm hospitality including a delicious home cooked cake and local apple juice. An excellent location for motorists to visit Bristol, Bath, Wells, Cheddar Gorge, Wales, good eateries and food shopping in nearby Chew Magna, a lovely village. The listing was accurate and we highly recommended the Barn...we hope to go back!

We were a group of three ladies attending a glass fusing course in Bristol. The property was very close to Bristol and a real haven to come back to at the end of the day. The views were lovely and reminded me of my childhood farm days. Gary was very welcoming and we saw him most days for a chat even though he was busy haymaking. Woody the dog was a special treat and I will not forget his lovely smile! The property itself was lovely, well equipped and clean. We would all go back again and in fact I think we need to as we only found out about the Pony and Trap on the last day and they weren't open! Excellent.

Owner's Response: Thankyou ladies for your lovely comments, I am glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to meeting you again, and yes the "Pony" is as good an excuse as any to come back. - Gary
