  • "We had a very enjoyable holiday, weather could have been better."

    Karen was most helpful and I even managed to cope with her dog Puzzle. The property was very quiet and peaceful, the lanes can be challenging being single track.

  • "The cleanest holiday property we have stayed in over the years."

  • "The cottage and the grounds were faultless and spotless, all so well kept and neatly presented."

    Karen and Campbell were on hand if we needed but not intrusive in any way and Puzzle the dog was a joy to see each morning. We were welcomed by Karen and there was milk, tea, coffee and fresh fruit available as a starter pack along with a vase of flowers hand picked from their own garden. Would recommend to anybody as a lovely peaceful holiday, very therapeutic. Thank you

  • "Little Barn was very comfortable and warm; it was well appointed and had everything I needed."

    It was in a great location with lovely views and a beautiful village to walk up to and close by a number of National Trust properties to visit. I very much enjoyed my stay and would definitely return again.

  • "This is a beautiful cottage with everything you need for a home from home comfort."

    Lots of National Trust properties and seaside not too far. I would have liked a pub or restaurant within walking distance, but that’s my only gripe. It’s in a lovely setting and very relaxing and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "This was the best coattage that we have stayed in and our holiday was cut short by the illness of a relative."

    The only problem for us was the Friday to Friday let as we do not like travelling on days when commercial vehicles use the roads and prefer Saturday to Saturday.

  • "An OK place."

    Chair and sofa a bit worn and lacking in body. Excellent heating. A very good space for a couple.

    The Sofa and Chair were not very old but as we never stop to sit down on them when cleaning during changeover we had not realised the sofa was becoming a bit too soft! This has been rectified and a lovely new sofa and matching chair have been bought, are very comfortable and look really nice! Property Owner

  • "After still getting lost on the way there despite the new directions we arrived at Little Barn."

    Karen and Campbell were welcoming and showed us around the place. Little Barn had all of the facilities and comforts that we have come to expect from Sykes cottages and extra touches like fruit and flowers and a milk to start off our holiday. The setting was lovely with a pond just outside the door where the swallows swooped down and then headed back to their nest in the stables. Each time we came "home" the dogs came to greet us with enthusiasm. From Little Barn we visited the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Wells cathedral, Wilton and Stonehenge.

  • "Very quiet location and within easy driving distance of numerous places of interest."

    Our hosts, Karen and Campbell, were very friendly and welcoming (as were their two dogs) - they gave freely of their local knowledge of eating-places and alternative directions to places. Would recommend this location.

  • "A lovely holiday cottage with everything you need set among fields and views over beautiful countryside."

    Owners were particularly friendly and helpful and the local community too. It took a while to get used to the narrow lanes and routes to Wincanton and Gillingham but there was plenty of help from local houses if you took a wrong turn. Strongly recommended and we hope to return.

  • "We had a great holiday ,friendly helpful hosts ."

    The photos don’t do it justice . Lovely quiet setting with lovely views to the front . My only criticism is that the directions to find the cottage were inaccurate ,Karen the host ,had to come and find us when we got lost ( we don’t use a sat nav ) the lanes mentioned don’t have any signs ! And instructions to leave A303 at wincanton are wrong,you need to leave where it sayes wincanton races . After a long journey this all wasted 30 minutes .

  • "What a little gem."

    The owners live on site and could not be more helpful. In these strange times with Covid social distancing and cleanliness are very important to everyone. We couldn’t fault the precautions that had been taken. This part of South Somerset had a lot of places to explore. We had a lovely relaxing break
