  • "The Barn lived up to expectations if not exceeded them."

    The owners were very helpful friendly but not intrusive. Lovely welcome pack of fresh milk tea coffee and biscuits. Would definitely stay here again in the future. The property had everything you would need , well appointed kitchen and bathroom with amazing walk in shower. One tiny thing but this is a personal preference is to have bath sheets as opposed to bath towels, otherwise everything perfect.

    The cottage is fantastic and the shower is amazing especially after the wet and windy walks. Close to Clark’s village shopping and other amenities. Thanks for a great holiday

  • "A well appointed and comfortable cottage with attentive and friendly owners."

    We had a lovely four night stay and enjoyed the comfy bed, incredible shower (one of the best we’ve experienced in a holiday cottage), the huge sofa in the living room and large log burner. The kitchen is very high spec and well equipped too. With a solid and reliable WiFi, a large smart tv with Netflix, and the underfloor heating, this cottage provides all you need for a splendid break.

  • "We had a lovely week in Willow Barn over the New Year period."

    The cottage was absolutely spotless, with furnishings and fixtures & fittings of a very high standard. We felt completely at home and relaxed straightaway. Andrew, the owner couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. He went out of his way to ensure that everything was done to make our stay comfortable. The cottage is in a great spot to explore Somerset and the surrounding nature reserves. Thanks again, Andrew for a great stay.

  • "Exceptionally clean, efficient underfloor heating and fantastic log burner."

    Just a shame there is no separate freezer or even a freezer compartment in the fridge. Hosts live next door and were very friendly and welcoming. Very quick to respond to our messages.

Take your seat at the dining table and be sure to crack open a bottle of bubbly, raising a glass to precious time with loved ones before tucking into your fantastic feast.

Cross the heated floors over to the sitting room, where you can place a log on the woodburning stove before settling down on the plush corner sofa and losing yourself in an entertaining movie on the flat-screen TV.

When the sun is shining and the weather is warm, open up the bifold doors in the sitting room and delight in an afternoon soaking up the sunshine out on the patio.

or indulge in a picnic on the well-manicured lawn.

Back inside, guests can admire the striking mezzanine walk-way as they wander through the first floor and discover a bright and sophisticated family shower room, hosting a spacious walk-in shower.

Also on the first floor are two homely bedrooms consisting of a king-size and a double, each complete with fresh linens and a warm ambiance, an ideal space to lay your head to rest at the end of the day.

About the location


Glastonbury 6 miles; Street 4 miles.

The pretty, little Somerset village of Shapwick can be found on the Somerset Levels, an Area of Special Scientific Interest, a low-lying marshy area which stretches from the Mendip Hills as far as Taunton, crossed by numerous drainage channels called rhynes, where willows are grown for basket making, and a bird-watchers paradise. The village became famous in 1998 for the discovery of the largest hoard of Roman silver ever found in the United Kingdom. Shapwick provides a great touring base, as the town of Street, famous for the Clarks Shopping Village, and the historic town of Glastonbury, well known for its Abbey, Tor, and Festival, are both only a short drive. Just a little further afield can be found Wells Cathedral as well as the beaches at Burnham-on-Sea and Weston Super Mare, with Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge both easily accessible. This really is an ideal location for an interesting holiday at any time of the year.
