    Ideal for dog owners with the exclusive use of a large fenced paddock in addition to the cottage garden. We very much enjoyed our stay , it had the amenities we required and will book to return.

  • "Firstly, I booked the place in error."

    Although I was trying to get through on the phone, (constantly engaged), it was 24 hours & 10 mins since the booking had been made. I won't be using this Comany again!! About the converted building, it was freezing, no substantial insulation, only oil electric radiators. Now the smell, wet dogs, to cover this there were plug in chemical air freshners, I'm allergic to both so no good to me. I stayed 2 nights out of 28 booked. I nearly got my van stuck in the deep gravel in the parking area, so beware! Also very remote, with apparently no technology for WiFi, although we had a 02 signal! It was clean, but other than that, not suitable for a winter let. The bedding was inadequate & there were no draft excluders under the doors. Definable be aware! The booking was for 24/11/23 - 22/12/23 Date of experience: 24 October 2023

    Lovely goodies to start us off. We were very comfortable and Nero enjoyed the field as usual. Easy to get around to places of interest and despite the weather we managed to get around. The Lime Kiln was a good pub for our meal before leaving. We understand that Sue is making improvements based on previous feedbacks so we need to return again to see.

  • "The owner was very considerate and understanding of my husband's needs due to his ill- health."

    The cottage is well-equipped and having 2 toilet/shower rooms was great for us. It is in a very peaceful location. One of the highlights was being able to open the external door in the bedroom to enjoy watching the birds feeding on the birdfeeders a few feet away. We did feel that instead of air-fresheners in every room, what was needed was the carpet to be steam cleaned because the smell of dogs was incredibly strong in the building.

    Hello I'm so pleased that the stay was relaxing for your needs and hopefully you will return. Thankyou for the feedback which I always take on board. This is a very pet friendly environment. The carpets were replaced last year. I fully understand people that stay without pets may pick up on certain smells. I do try as much as i can to cater for everyone's needs. ie. New beds and mattress(s) are being replaced next week as a few previous customers commented on this. Property Owner

  • "We were looking for a budget value for money property for the two of us and our dog, Bertie, and we definitely found it in the Old Goat Barn."

    Sue, is defo, the hostess with mostess, so welcoming and friendly but, mainly concerned that Bertie had a good time. Sue took time to show the facilities and layout of the property, which was really useful and then left us to it for the rest of our stay however, she was only a phone call away if you needed anything. The Facilities indoors were adequate, if I had one concern, it was the shower curtains in the cubical. A glass door would have been more appropriate, as the water ran down the curtain onto the floor, the wooden shower matt stopped any slips. I also found, as a man with a fuller figure, the curtain could be quite restrictive.Everything else was absolutely fine, the secure dog paddock is an absolute triumph, the enclosed courtyard is great for eating Al Fresco and, we are looking forward to a return visit in 2024, hoping for more of the same from the lovely Sue. If you're looking for a good base to explore the southwest, then we would highly recommend this hidden gem. I could say more but I don't want to lose the booking next year!

    Thankyou so much for your lovely feedback. I totally agree about the shower curtains and i am planning to get them changed to glass. I always take on board the comments and if I can will try my best to upgrade as best as I can. It is a humble but peaceful retreat. I'm so glad you both enjoyed your stay and most of all Bertie and will be looking forward to your return. Property Owner

    We have stayed before and will do so again. Perfect for a couple and ideal for those with dogs . Nice enclosed rear garden with comfortable seating and the large enclosed paddock for the exclusive use of our dog is a wonderful extra bonus. Friendly and helpful owner .

    They were very friendly, showed us around the accommodation and extremely generous with many treats (which were much appreciated). The Barn was spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable, very well equipped and contained a very comprehensive information folder of important and local information. The setting was peaceful and surrounded by fields and meadows. The garden furniture and reclining chairs in the enclosed patio area were perfect for relaxing and enjoying the summer evenings. The location has easy accessibility by car to many visitor Attractions, Properties and Gardens, pretty towns and villages and is ideal for cycling and walking. We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay and would recommend this holiday Barn to others.

  • "Arrived Friday and left Saturday."

    The property was shown as having internet connection which was imperative for us because of an on going situation. The internet was worse than useless with a plug in repeater in the bedroom which we assumed should connect with the main house. The cottage is ideal for dogs and there is a very warm welcome from the owner but overall it falls far short of our expectations of Sykes cottages based on our many past bookings.

    Hello So sorry about your concern relating to the internet connection. The description does say that internet can be flakey due to the rural location. I myself *Susan has problems too but i normally use G4 on my phone if i need to. The cottage is humble but is a base to go out an explore and enjoy your stay. This should be about relaxing not worrying about TV and internet, It is very quite at night and doggie friendly. A private driveway and a garage to park your vehicle. I sometimes wonder what people expect for the price. I just wish you would have come to me and explained before leaving but i suppose everyone is different . Property Owner

  • "We stayed 6/3/23 for 5 days."

    We have rented holiday cottages for many years and have great experience in this field. Unfortunately our arrival was marred by an awful muddy lane leading up to the property, making our car absolutely filthy and heavy with mud. Nothing the owner can do about this, but a warning in the description would have helped us. Very nice welcome, bits of biscuits, and chocs and a sliced loaf welcomed us. Our first impression of this old converted building was that all the character had been stripped out, leaving just a pleasant abode. The lighting was minimal which is fine except that the kitchen was too dark, and shadows were cast over the cooker and the sink, making it very difficult to see. The oven door is dangerous as it swings shut again once you have opened it, making it a possible safety hazard. The fridge/freezer, located in the car port, has a compartment lid which falls open every time the door is opened. That said, we did have a good stay overall, there was plenty if information at hand about the surrounding area and amenities, and the outlook over the garden and fields was lovely, with two resident ducks on the pond, and a nice little courtyard area at the back would be a good place to sit in warm weather. I’m afraid we would not return this time which is a great shame.

    Hello So sorry that your stay was not as expected. This time of year, the lanes are very muddy due to the location, tractors etc but in the summer months it is glorious; unfortunately that is seasons for you. The Kenwood cooker was purchased less than 3 months ago, so we will check and if required this will be under warranty to be fixed but saying that we have had no other complaints or concerns about this. We have taken note on the light above the cooker. The freezer in the garage is not part of the booking description so in the future maybe we should not let anyone use this; we just thought it would be handy at times. *too kind for our own good. Description of 'The Old Goat Barn'. Well what can we say apart from it is what you see on the tin *photos on the website. Simple, humble but it is quiet, has a double bay garage to park your car safely and out of bad weather and also easy for getting to the the door if you have mobility problems. It would be lovely to see you both back again....maybe in the summer months. Property Owner

    We spent a pleasant week visiting such places as the Fleet Air Arm at Yeovilton and Burnham on Sea. The Cottage itself is cosy and comfy and benefits from its own small private garden. The beds are comfortable and the heating was more than adequate and easily adjusted. Our only gripe is that Wi-Fi connection kept dropping out making it difficult to book tickets online for the Fleet Air Arm, so ended up paying more. Also, though it's a minor niggle, there is no kitchen litter bin, but to be fair the main litter bin is just a few yards away in the car port. All in all this cottage was more than worth the money paid. A genuine bargain

The property

An attractive stone-built cottage, all on one level, in Catsgore just outside the charming town of Somerton.

This property is ideal for a couple who love walking and exploring the beautiful countryside as it is situated right in the heart of the luscious landscape.

There is a comfortable twin bedroom with lovely en-suite shower room for your convenience.

As you go into the sitting room, you will be welcomed by a comfy reclining leather 3-seater sofa so why not get cosy and relax with the electric fire on to keep you warm?

There is also a TV to keep you entertained or simply sit quietly and indulge in a favourite book.

The kitchen has a dining area, should you choose to eat at home and throughout the property there are quaint furnishings to make you feel right at home.

This humble accommodation is detached from the Owner’s house next door, with an undercover timber garage to park your car and outside is a gravelled patio area with chairs and table to sit out and enjoy an evening meal in the peaceful surroundings.

There are wonderful views from the property of the garden and the pond and the owners paddock where you can see ducks and geese as well as further afield catching a glimpse of deer.

There are a variety of places of interest nearby including: Royal Fleet Air Arm Museum, National Trust Sourhead Gardens, Glastonbury and Clark’s Outlet Village, not to mention some glorious countryside walking routes.

Somerton is a beautiful destination with old town charm and many historical buildings to see.

Once you've had time to explore, head to one of the delightful tearooms or cafes to take the weight off your feet.

Trout Cottage is in an extremely pleasant, countryside location, yet within walking distance of Somerton with 3 pubs, an excellent bistro and some shops.

Plenty to see and do for a couple looking to get away for a while.
