About the Owner

Louise spent two years converting this fascinating old Cider Barn. She has previously worked in property but has never taken on such a large but ultimately rewarding project. Was she mad, fool hardy or just brave? Louise loves the final finished beamed Cider Barn - her guests say it is peaceful, spiritual and they feel refreshed. Her children Will, James and Rose are all working elsewhere but they visit regularly, and love the walks and runs along the River Tone and the little spring flower clad lanes. Louise has worked abroad three times and travelled alot, but she is happy in this special corner of the West Country - accompanied by Sika her charming, black cocker. She will recommend and book local pubs for you.

  • Notes on accommodation: This is a well-designed apartment in west wing of Cider Barn - all on one floor. One dog is welcome, (defleed and wormed please) as long as it does not sleep on beds or the sofa! Dogs who sleep in cages are very welcome! WALKS AROUND US AND ALONG RIVER TONE ARE WONDERFUL! Outside: Cider Barn has a South West facing courtyard garden, with a range of seating areas. You have a small lawned area outside your property, and there are other seats dotted around, and a discreet nook hidden by shrubs. Steamer chairs/lounger, table and chairs etc are provided. There is a barbeque too. Utility Room: You can use an outside washing machine if necessary. I have two here. I can dry it for you on my airer if you wish. I am green - ie no tumble dryer here. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen provided. Normally changed once a week, you can request clean towels. Green and sustainable here, we try to minimise washing if possible. Other: Hallway with welllie boot space and coat hanging,drying. As Cider Barn has underfloor heating wet boots and damp dogs dry well!
