  • "Perfect stay, everything was as listed in the description and Erica was so lovely in asking if we needed anything topping up."

    Olive the gorgeous dog is adorable and friendly made our stay. One thing i would say is that it would of been good to of have more options with the TV as in Netflix as we do not have the Google Stream as i would say a lot of visitors wouldn't either.

    Thankyou for your feedback…. It was lovely to meet you both….Pleased you enjoyed your stay and made the best of your visit….…. We recently put the new smart tv in… something we will address re Netflix/Google stream…. Property Owner

  • "We have just returned from a relaxing and peaceful holiday at Boundary Barn."

    It's set at the top of a valley, so the views were amazing. Being able to watch the funny spring lambs was lovely. The Barn had everything you need and it was very clean. We enjoyed walking from the barn across the numerous footpaths, byways and bridleways. The countryside was stunning. The wildflowers were beautiful. A visit to the Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes was a lovely day out, if you go to the fishing tackle shop at Woodford Lodge at Chew Valley lake sailing club, you can buy a day permit ticket for £6 each, this allows you to walk or drive around these beautiful lakes. We saw an Osprey, Barn Owl, Little Egrets, Herons, Sandpipers, and a new sighting for us, Garganey dabbling ducks. The grasses around the lake were filled with wildflowers including Early purple Orchids. There's also a restaurant at Woodford Lodge. Thank you for a lovely stay at Boundary Barn.

  • "Fab location."

    The barn was amazingly clean! Decor was the perfect mix between modern & traditional. Superb comfy beds with high quality bedding. Fluffy, thick bath towels. Loads of storage. Kitchen equipped with everything you could possible need/want. Diffusers dotted about releasing lovely fragrances & also matching handwash in both bathrooms. There is even a chromecast so you can beam content to the tv Its those little well thought out touches that raises the bar. This is by far the best place we have stayed in in the UK. Erica & Andy are such a lovely friendly couple and It's so obvious to see that their priority is for all guests to have a lovely time at Boundary Barn. This is a 5* accommodation!!! I cannot recommend enough & would definitely return in a heartbeat!!

  • "This was the first time we have booked a cottage and we really enjoyed it."

    The cottage is just 5 miles from Bristol and is a great base to discover the local area. It has beautiful views over the rolling hills and the owners were very welcoming even giving us some milk so we didn't need to go to the shops when we arrived. It had a well-equiped kitchen including washing up liquid, dishcloths, and tea towels. There were lovely toiletries provided in the shower rooms and it was well decorated throughout. At one end of the lane, there is an ice cream parlour well worth a visit and a pub at the other end. We visited Bristol Docks, Clifton Suspension Bridge, Glastonbury, the Cheddar Gorge and Weston Super Mare all very easy to get to. Lots of little villages with country pubs close by too.I can't recommend it enough. We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you Andrea and Graham.

  • "We had a lovely holiday 'covid style', isolating so sadly not accessing local attractions although we visited Tynstesfield N."

    T property and drove through Clevedon which unfortunately had decided to ban all car parking along the front, why could they not have had at least alternate parking bays made available? As a result side streets were jam packed with cars - possibly for the residents and few visitors. Shame, because Clevedon looked delightful. The location of the Boundary Barn gives 180 views of beautiful countryside with every shade of green, yellow and bronze - and with sheep of course. Unfortunately without a Sat Nav finding it was tricky on the drive down to Dundry but we cracked it in the end - part of Somerset's charm is the winding roads which can take you in circles even with an old fashioned map to guide you.. We had beautiful weather which was a bonus, and walks to the local dairy each day for fresh milk from Guernsey cows was a joy. Our hosts Andrew and Erica made us most welcome on arrival and unobtrusive hosts, we knew if we had need them they were always there.

  • "We loved the layout and facilities of Boundary Barn, Everything seemed to have been well thought out and it was decorated and furnished to a high standard."

    We appreciated the groceries left for us, which avoided us having to pop to the shops for the basics. We had lovely days out throughout the week, visiting Wells, Clevedon and Bath, but there is lots for us still to see, so another visit would be good! The showers were great, but my elderly mother would have appreciated a shower mat and grab rail. We highly recommend.

  • "I booked Boundary Barn for my boyfriends parents as they were over to visit us from France and we are having work done on the house so they couldn't stay with us, and they were looking after his 5 year old daughter."

    They were so happy with their stay, they arrived to scones and clotted cream and Erica and Andy made them very welcome! It is a lovely location and funnily enough we could almost see the cottage from our house and they could see ours as the views are across the valley! Would highly recommend staying there to anyone, and if we have more visitors that we can't put up, will definitely be booking them in there!! It's easy to get either directly into Bristol or out to the countryside, so they found it a great location for exploring .. apparently there are also apples and plums in the garden ;-)

  • "We found Boundary Barn very cosy, clean and comfortable, (lovely comfy bed and the fluffiest towels ever)."

    Located in lovely rolling countryside but near enough to Bristol if you want a bit more life, plenty of things to see and do there. We visited Weston Super Mare, Wookey Hole, Wells, Cheddar Gorge which were no more than a hours drive away. Be aware that there are planes regularly flying over as airport not too far away, though we had no problem with this at all. Would definitely recommend you visit here, owners Erica and Andy were most welcoming and helpful.
