About Andrew and Helen Stone

We have owned the property for 21 years with the intention of always converting the adjoining barn but the time has not been right until 2014.

Lovely clean and modern cottage which was perfect for our family half term holiday in Somerset.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cottage. It had everything we needed plus the log burner was a real luxury during the cold winter evenings. The property was very clean and well designed. The owners were lovely and were mostly around if we needed anything.

One word..Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Before I talk about the property I would like to say a word about our hosts Andrew and Helen. You could not ask for nicer more accommodating hosts. When we had a problem (not with the property) Andrew went the extra mile to help us out, for which we are so grateful. There are two words I can describe Andrew and Helen, and those words are genuine and friendly.

The property was top rate, I don't believe it could have been any cleaner and was equipped to a very high standard. The beds are comfortable, and the fact you can control your own heating via the control panels in each room is a real bonus. The property is ideally located for the local area, we visited Wookey Hole, Glastonbury several times!!! and Weston Super Mare. We cannot recommend this barn highly enough!

Excellent accomodation in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Andrew and Helen’s barn conversion in Shapwick. We were greeted by Andrew upon our arrival who took the time to show us around the barn and answer any questions we had. The barn was clean, well maintained, and equipped to a high standard with a stylish décor throughout. The beds in the barn where very comfortable and we appreciated Andrew and Helen accommodating our request for a sofa bed.

The barn is ideally located to explore many attractions. We had great days out at Cheddar, Wookey Hole, Wells, Bristol, Weston-Super-Mare and fossil hunting at Kilve beach.

We would highly recommend the barn and will definitely stay again when holidaying in the area in the future.

Wow what a beautiful holidayhome!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last week of our holiday in Somerset in this beautiful barn conversion. It is spacious, light and we absolutely loved the interior. From the beautiful well-equiped kitchen to the modern bathroom, everything is decorated to a high standard. The property was very clean and well-maintained. The owners are very helpful and friendly. The secluded garden is private, quiet and sunny. When you visit the area you should visit Wells, Bath, Stonehenge, Cheddar Gorge and Glastonbury. We had a wonderful week and when we visit the area again, we will definitely be staying here!
