  • "Karen & Campbell made us most welcome, the proprty was superb in all respects."

    Anything that we wished to know, whether it be about the property or places to visit, they were a font of knowledge. Though we were primarily visiting friends and family this is a very good location for visiting National Trust propertys, or the seaside with Weymouth and Durdle Door all a reasonable distance away. Also plenty of places to have walks and to eat out. We will be going back!

    Thank you! We loved meeting you. Property Owner

    Great hosts, who are happy to chat and recommend places to visit. On arrival found a bowl of fruit, milk in fridge along with Tea/ Coffee.

  • "Quiet, well-equipped cottage in rural location."

    Friendly and knowledgeable owners provided lots of information on things to do in the area. So much to see as located on the Dorset/Somerset border, conveniently located to explore both counties.

  • "The cottage was extremely clean, the owners, Cameron & Karen were very friendly and knowledgable about the area."

    We found the cottage to be one of the best we have stayed in (this comment is not restricted to Sykes), so warm and cosy, the grounds and surrounding areas had some amazing views, enjoyable, despite the weather. Would definitely recommend and we will hopefully return in the future

The property

Wincanton 3.5 miles.

Sitting in the south Somerset countryside is this beautiful dairy conversion, with rambling roses around the door to invite you in, and south facing countryside views to admire on a bright day, Willow Barn is a homely retreat.

Attached to its neighbour, Little Barn, and next door to the owners’ home and stables, it’s a perfect location for a rural getaway suitable for a small family or a group of friends.

The property benefits from being set all on the ground floor, with an open-plan living space providing several areas to relax in, decorated in a simple but elegant décor.

The kitchen offers several appliances for cooking up a delicious evening meal, which you can serve up either at the breakfast bar or at the dining table.

Enjoy your favourite TV show while you spread out on one of the two plush sofas, or simply read the latest best seller that you bought just for this holiday.

Open up the doors to the south-facing patio and relax with a drink in the evening sun, enjoying endless beautiful sunsets.

When it’s time to retreat to your bedroom for some rest, choose from either the double room or the twin room, both providing tranquil sleeping spots and offering ample storage for your belongings.

Explore the outside surroundings, walk along the long sweeping drive next to the paddocks with horses, or wander through the garden past the pond.

Venture further out and into the Cranborne Chase AONB where you will enjoy wonderful days of walks and rambles experiencing beautiful scenery.

Visit Stourhead, a palladian mansion and world famous landscape garden run by the National Trust, north of Willow Barn and offering a lovely day out.

The town of Wincanton is a lively and sweet town.

There are many shops and is home to a golf course and the Wincanton Races.

Willow Barn is a fantastic country home perfect for a trip to Somerset at any time of year.
