Barn in Crewkerne, Somerset, England - Organic Farm Within Walking Distance Of Award Winning Gastro Pub
Oak Tree Barn (one of 3 properties at Fords Croft Cottages) is packed with features reminiscent of a bygone era, on arrival the double height ceiling with exposed beams and open plan layout never fails to impress. The restoration of this beautiful ham stone barn took care to preserve features such as the arched stone work along the south wall and maintain a sense of grandeur by keeping the original layout. Now you can relax in style with a beautifully designed interior that features an oak floor and kitchen, high quality furniture and furnishings and modern appliances. To top it off there is a lovely secluded seating area which affords stunning country views for a morning coffee or evening glass of wine.

Guestbook comments from the owner
-"This place looks amazing on the website, and is even better in real life. Very friendly people and dog though it is not necessary to have any contact with anyone if you wish. I didn’t want to leave when the weekend was over and I really couldn’t have asked for a nicer place to stay."
-“We absolutely loved our week in Oak Tree Barn, both exploring the wonderful surroundings and relaxing in the beautiful cottage! Just perfect.”
“We had an absolutely fabulous time staying here, thefacilities are just as described and all very high quality. We would recommend it to anyone.”
From the Owner
“This property was renovated on the family farm as it was a beautiful character building. Fords Croft Cottages also offers a beautiful character cottage and another very impressive barn conversion.”
