    • “We had a brilliant time at Thornesmill Barn. The barn exceeded are expectations providing very comfortable accommodation with everything that you could want provided. There was even a box of chocolates and a bottle of wine left for our arrival along with the promised milk, tea and coffee. It was in an ideal location in Watchet with pubs, restaurants, shops, the harbour and the local steam train either on the doorstep or less than 5 minutes walk away. We would certainly recommend the barn and will definitely stay here again for our next visit to Somerset.”

    Mr Bromley, SHEERNESS, October 2018

    • “Set right in the centre of Watchet, it is a really fantastic property ,every facility you could need and décor is Wow! Comfortable and stylish, everything on your doorstep, and a lovely garden to relax in. Minutes walk from the Steam railway, so easy access to Bishop's Lydeard or Minehead. and great walks all round, not sandy beaches actually in Watchet but a short drive away. Also a scenic drive up onto beautiful Exmoor. Owners had left us milk ,wine and chocolates, how nice was that? This property is great value for money, We had great weather but there is plenty to do in the area and the barn is so comfy ,thanks again Chris and Richard.”

    Mrs Gunby, Leicester, July 2018

    • “The accommodation was superb! Also so near to shops, restaurants and the harbour which made it extra special.The steam train at Watchet is a must and the bus service is good too. Would recommend this to anyone! Thank you so much”

    Mrs Tyrrell, HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, June 2018

    • “We had the most wonderful week at Thornsmill Barn. The house was perfect and everything was there that we needed it was so well equipped. It was a really spacious place with a lovely private garden too where we spent most evenings. The owner even brought round a bag of charcoal if we wanted to use the BBQ. It is a great location and we all agreed that it was a home that we could live in permanently if it ever came on the market! Thank you Richard and Chris for our perfect holiday”

    Mrs James, Rugby, June 2018

    • “Modern, comfortable barn conversion. Great garden for relaxing in. Steam train station , marina and shops a few minutes walk away. Ideally situated for a happy relaxing holiday.”

    Mrs Hammond, Banbury, June 2018

    • “Lovely property, had everything we needed and plenty of space”

    Mrs Belcham, BIRMINGHAM, May 2018

    • “This is a stunning accommodation, ideally placed to walk to train station to travel on the West Somerset Heritage Line also great to walk round Watchet. The barn is beautifully laid out & the owners seem to have thought of everything, chocolates, wine & milk a thoughtful touch. I didn't want to leave & hope to go again.”

    Mrs Bray, Burntwood, May 2018

    • “The accommodation is superb...a house I could happily move to! Very well located and quiet despite being located right in the centre of town. If you enjoy the railway you couldn't get much closer..the Co-op has been revamped and is very well stocked. There are some excellent places to eat and Pebbles Bar is well worth a visit”

WATCHET Minehead 9 miles. Watchet is a delightful, small Somerset harbour town with a maritime history going back over two millennia, where visitors may enjoy the variety of quaint shops on offer and watch the boats in the marina. Watchet attracts railway enthusiasts from all around, as The West Somerset Railway, twenty miles of preserved steam railway, passes through Watchet and continues through stunning scenery to the coastal town of Minehead, approximately nine miles away. There are superb walks along the coast from Watchet, while towards St Audries in the east, the Quantock Hills rise to 1,000 feet above the sea and the Brendon Hills and Exmoor are to the west, within easy reach. Explore the many pretty coastal and inland villages including Porlock, with its steep hill and pretty winding streets, Dunster with its dramatic castle perched above the historic village and the busy resort of Minehead with its sandy beach, golf course and traditional seaside attractions.
