Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We had a lovely long weekend here. The cottage itself is a converted Barn and has been done to a very good standard. The cottage is cosy and comfortable whilst also being modern with everything you need. The location of this property is lovely, with views out to open countryside and is so peaceful. Nearby are some lovely pubs, we loved The Windwhistle Inn, Cricket-St-Thomas, a five minute drive from the cottage. Nearby is the lovely Lyme Regis and also easily accesible are Longleat, Bath and Wells and Cheddar. March 2012.
  2. Very spacious, comfortable and clean property. Idyllic location on dairy farm within a few miles of the coast and attractions in East Somerset. Perfect cycling country. Sept 2011.
  3. We absolutely loved our week in The Old Workshop, both exploring the wonderful surroundings and relaxing in the beautiful cottage! Just perfect. Aug 2011.
  4. Great place to stay with access to places such as Cheddar Gorge, Lyme Regis and Stone Henge. June 2011.
  5. Fantastic location! The farm was lovely, Barney the dog there to greet you and the cows were lovely to. Quiet and peaceful (even the odd moo from the cows was quiet!) Hosts were friendly and helpful. Felt at ease to come as go as we pleased. Amazing buzzards, swallows and deer on the farm to. Surrounding area gives you so much to do - Cheddar Gorge, Wells, Glastonbury, Langport, Perry’s Cider Mill, Lyme Regis - really filled our 4 days. Pubs and places to eat are great to, lovely food at good prices or pay a little more for an amazing meal. The Old Workshop was a modern delight to stay in, comfortable, very homely, had everything we needed. Would definitely stay again. June 2011.
  6. Beautifully simple accomodation that feels like a five star treat. Remote but stunning location and a short drive to many different places of interest. You are made to feel very welcome straight away and the time you spend here will always feel too short. If you want special time away from the rat race this propery is the perfect choice. May 2011.
  7. The Old Workshop is an utterly fabulous conversion to a top class self catering accommodation. The attention to detail both in the workmanship of the conversion and in the kitting out of the building and furnishings is excellent. The farm location os perfect for a relaxing holiday, but close enough to amenities and tourist attractions too. The family are very welcoming and also check out the Fordscroft Yurts. All in all a briliant holiday location you would want to return to again and again. Just perfect. March 2011.
  8. I would highly recommend visiting this property its location is excellent, the property is excellently decorated and furnished and there is plenty of room for 2 people. Its perfect to spend the whole day in if the weather is bad and not too far away from civilisation if you fancy going out. Only downside was that taxis didn’t seem to know where it was so remember the postcode as this can be vital! Feb 2011.
  9. Spacious, comfortable, well furnished and equipped and it was fun to be in a modern open plan barn conversion. Jan 2010.
  10. Wonderful countryside, peaceful location and amazing views. Nice places to visit locally and a real retreat from the real world. Nov 2010.
  11. Excellent in every way. Sept 2010.
  12. This Holiday let felt like a real home away from home - all the creature comforts you need to relax. We enjoyed spending time in the Old Workshop just as much as we enjoyed exploring the glorious surrounding countryside. Sept 2010.
  13. Excellent surroundings and property. Owners very helpful, a wonderful break, we would not hesitate to return and would use your company again. June 2010.
  14. Very spacious, clean and although on a working farm i never once felt intruded upon. Staff on the farm were very friendly and made me welcome. May 2010.
  15. The Old Workshop had an amazing panoramic window which allows you to look over the fields while laying in bed! With a cup of coffee in hand it is difficult to concentrate on anything but the amazing landscape in front of you! The standard of everything is of a very high quality and it is a lovely peaceful, private retreat to escape to! We will be returning for out third visit again! Having tried both barns on the property now... this view wins this barn an extra star in our opinions! April 2010.
  16. Nice clean place in a lovely area. Quiet and peaceful.Lots to see in surrounding areas. April 2010.
  17. Clean, excellent provisions which were much needed as the shops were a few miles away. April 2010.
  18. Stylish, modern accommodation in rural countryside. Large rooms, lovely bedroom and bathroom - everything you need for a great retreat. March 2010.
  19. Spacious yet cosy accommodation, off the beaten track & perfect for those looking to get away from it all! March 2010.
