  • "We had a brilliant holiday at Flora's Barn."

    A very comfortable and relaxing accommodation. We would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. We felt at home as soon as we arrived. Bruce & Jacqui welcomed us, and helped us settle into Flora's barn. The surroundings and views are fabulous. Our dog Lucy was safe in the enclosed garden and this meant that we could relax knowing that she was secure. Excellent kitchen and dining area. Lovely bedrooms and separate bathrooms... You couldn't want for more. Highly recommended! Angela and family.

    Angela , Robert and their family were perfect guests. They made the most of Flora's Barn , it's garden and views. It was a pleasure to meet them and we wish them well. Bruce and Jacqui. Property Owner

  • "An excellent holiday cottage, that instantly feels like home when you walk through the door."

    The cottage was extremely comfortable and came with everything one needs for a relaxing and enjoyable rest. The thought that went into providing the extras was really appreciated, so simple, so easy yet all things that made the holiday flow. Our hosts are to be congratulated on the holiday that Flora’s Barn gives. Thank you

  • "Our third stay in this converted barn in the Quantocks."

    A quiet village but within 15 minutes drive of Taunton. Open countryside within 2 minutes drive with stunning views across the Bristol Channel. Deer, ponies and birds of prey were all seen. The cottage is a delight in the evening watching the sun set across the valley and the log burner is an absolute joy. We will return for a fourth visit!
