  • "Cherrywood Barn was an excellent property to stay in - quite spacious for 2 plus our dog, with very clean, modern facilities (eg oven), and a lovely setting behind the owners house surrounded by trees, flowers, and a lovely lawn with the sounds of nature a really soothing and relaxing background."

    We felt really welcomed on arrival and was able to use the property as a great base to visit other places, but also lovely for local walks and a couple of evening meals in the local pub. Definitely a place that we will consider going back to

  • "Cherrywood Barn was very comfortable and spotlessly clean with everything we needed for a relaxing break and more."

    Our hosts were very friendly and approachable. The setting was quiet and peaceful but with plenty of opportunities to explore all that Somerset had to offer. Will definitely return in the future and would definitely recommend to family and friends.

    Thankyou Ian for the great feedback and we look forward to seeing you both in the future . Derek and Catherine Property Owner

  • "Had a lovely stay at Cherrywood Barn, everything was spot on."

    Our only problem was we could not figure how to work the oven and microwave as digital, difficult for older people like us but we had planned to eat out most of the time so not really a problem. We were very lucky with the weather so we're able to make the most of the lovely balcony and peaceful surroundings. Local pub a very short walk away and fantastic Sunday lunch. Owners Catherine and Derek were so nice and the Lemon cake and Apple Juice were so nice to have on arrival. Only thing we feel that could have improved our stay would be to have access to a couple of relaxing garden chairs to enjoy the garden. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

    we are glad you had a lovely stay at Cherrywood Barn and thank you for your kind and helpful comments on aspects of your stay. We do appreciate there can be problems using unfamiliar appliances and we are happy to help guests familiarise themselves with the instructions.We will look to make these more user friendly. Linda,it is a good idea about providing garden chairs,we have loaned our own but plan now to buy a couple for guests. Property Owner

    It was very clean and comfortable and tastefully decorated. It is situated in a pretty village with easy access to the Dorset coast and there were several national trust properties within easy reach.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete the review and your kind comments. It was good to see you return and hope to see you again. Derek & Catherine Property Owner

    Excellent. The only thing I would have liked from Sykes was, in addition to the travel directions, would be SatNav coordinates or what3words to assist in locating the property entrance.

  • "We were greeted by Catherine on our arrival and show round the barn."

    This property is outstanding ! Extremely well built, tastefully decorated, comfortably furnished and equipped with everything you need. The bathroom is perfectly set out and the bedroom has lots of space and plenty of wardrobe and drawer space for 2. Having the covered balcony is a nice touch, offering somewhere tranquil to sit on a warm evening and enjoy a glass of whatever you fancy. The Lemon Drizzle cake and Apple Juice were greatly appreciated too ! It was great choice for a base for our excursions, within walking distance of the local pub for evening meals and a drink. We would recommend Cherrywood Barn to any couple looking for a friendly retreat.

  • "Cherrywood Barn was a delight to stay in."

    Catherine and Derek were very welcoming. There was a delicious cake and their own apple juice to enjoy whilst relaxing on the balcony. The barn itself was spacious, modern and clean with quality bedding, as was everything else provided. There are nice walks from Cherrywood Barn itself, particularly to South Petherton that is just right for a circular walk as there are cafes to break the journey and a baker selling locally made bread. The nursery and garden at East Lambrook is a must for plant lovers. We have a further two weeks booked later on in the summer and can’t wait to go again.
