Lovely upside down barn conversion

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my partner along with my parents and their Scottie dog "Ruby" stayed at this lovely upside down barn for 4 days.

Good communication and directions were sent via email before arrival. The owner met my parents on arrival showing them around and left some loungers to sit in the garden to soak up the Somerset sun.

The barn was well equipped, spotlessly clean and tidy. This is a credit to the owners. The view from the garden looks over the Blackdown hills to the Wellington Monument and is a totally relaxing place to stay. Its only a few minutes drive from Wellington town centre and about 20 minutes to Taunton. This was a perfect location for us and we enjoyed our stay.

We would totally recommend this barn it was perfect for 4 adults. One bedroom with ensuite and the other bedroom had two single beds that were made into a king size bed with the bathroom outside. The upstairs is open plan has two very comfortable leather settees in the lounge area with two patio doors opening up onto the garden. The kitchen/dining area had everything you needed.

Thank you Philip and Sarah we hope to return in the near future. 🤗?

Beautiful setting and 5 star accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Little Owl Barn for 4 nights, it is very clean and comfortable and has lovely views.

We enjoyed walking along the footpaths around the barn, and into Wellington itself. The Holywell is a 20 minute walk along the lanes and the food is very good, we can also recomend the butcher in Wellington.

Philip and Sarah were very friendly and accommodating and we would highly recommend this property.

Perfect getaway, a lovely birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5

All directions to the cottage were well explained. Owner met us upon arrival, who was more than helpful. The Barn was beautiful, lovely and clean, everything you needed was provided. The views are stunning, peaceful and quiet. We would definitely recommend Little Owl Barn for anyone looking to have a breakaway to a stunning location.

Upside down barn delivers stunning views and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with our children aged ten and nine. There was just the right amount of space in the top part of the barn for eating meals and relaxing on the sofas. The two bathrooms were spacious and well equipped, and the washing machine proved very useful. There is plenty of cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils. The lawn at the rear of the property is large enough for a game of rounders or kicking a rugby ball around. If that is insufficient, there is a sizeable paddock too. The owner of the neighbouring farm is very friendly and that family has lots of animals including pigs, turkeys, sheep and horses. If your child loves animals, you are in the right place. The Holywell Arms is a pub within 20 minute walking distance which does excellently priced food and superb beer. Wellington is the nearest town and it has an Asda and a Waitrose. So, according to your taste, you can stock up on essentials as well as wine and gin. There are many walks in the area but you will need an OS map of the area to be able to do this properly. Exmoor is within driving distance and that offers a multitude of hiking options as well as Dunster Castle. We had a lovely week during Whit half term and we are already talking about returning next year.

Unique

  • 4 of 5

A pleasant short break in a rural area.

Dog friendly, with a fully secure garden for your four legged friend.

Philip is attentive, residing on the same road for any ad-hoc queries (if required).

Comfortable and clean accommodation, with shared access via Payton farm.

Please can I suggest a small 'Somerset' welcome pack for arrivals, for example: milk.

After a long car journey this would be greatly appreciated.

Our recent visit to San Francisco did this, so I am sure Wellington can too!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We agree milk in the fridge is a good idea as we already have tea, coffee and sugar in the cottage.
