  • Ms Concannon

    “Lovely location and friendly owners, cottage was very cosy, and has been nicely thought out, we were made to feel very welcome.”

    Ideal for couples. Nice location for walks and close location to Cheddar Gorge. Just let down a little bit by a slight lack of cleanliness and bathroom being a bit overdue for a revamp. Example such as the mattress cover was dirty (noticed when taking off the sheets at end of the stay), also stairs didn't appear to be cleaned, noticed pet hairs on arrival. One other recommendation would be to have a larger TV in the lounge area to improve overall experience.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in The Barn. The Barn (including the shower room) will receive its annual refresh in early February. We will bring your other comments to the cleaners' attention. We agree with you that a larger television in the sitting room would be a good idea and we will replace it for the 2022 season. Thank you once again for your feedback and we wish you a Happy New Year. Property Owner
