Spotlessly clean, warm, comfortable and great communication. We only booked the day before and it was perfect. Reviewed by Alan5.0★Jan 2024 "Beautiful barn in a rural area but only 8mins away from Yeovil Town centre." Barn had everything we could need including decorated for Christmas. We had an amazing stay. Thank you Carol and Glen Reviewed by Gaynor5.0★Dec 2023 "We had a very enjoyable week at Tom’s Barn." It was very clean and comfortable, it was decorated for Christmas which made it nice and cosy. We didn’t need to use the log burner as we were warm enough without it. It was a great base for exploring the area, the single track roads near the property were a little scary at times but we got used to them and didn’t really come across much traffic, once through the village you were on main roads anyway. The only thing I could suggest was maybe a dish drainer or drying mat as if you wanted to just hand wash a couple of things there was no where to put them, everything else was provided including cleaning products and hand wash etc. Thanks very much for a great week. Reviewed by Adam5.0★Dec 2023 "Very comfortable cottage, with excellent facilities." The homemade scones were delicious. Reviewed by Robert5.0★Nov 2023 "We had a lovely holiday and Carol and Glen were very accommodating." The property is comfortable and convenient with everything on the ground floor. It's worth clarifying there's no DVD or Blu-ray player, although the TV's are smart and it's possible to log into Netflix etc on there. Being an active site it's not always quiet in the evenings but we were never bothered or disturbed by it. Reviewed by Joe4.7★Oct 2023 "Loved everything about the place, the owner's Carol and Glen are lovely people." I wished we could have stayed longer than 2 weeks! I can't fault it. Reviewed by David5.0★Aug 2023 "We loved our stay!" All the little touches of the flowers and the scones and the fact there was toilet roll and hand soap on arrival! Whenever we needed anything you were straight in to help. The barn is beautiful and we were very comfortable and very sad to go home! Reviewed by Michelle5.0★Aug 2023 "Thank you Carol for another lovely stay in Toms Barn and for the delicious scones." Reviewed by Jo5.0★Jul 2023 "A beautiful home for a week, with everything we needed." Surpassed expectations. I only booked it because hubby wanted to go to the Fleet Air Arm museum and I wanted to spoil him for our 30th wedding anniversary. We didn’t have the best weather, but went cycling using parts of the south Somerset cycleway and found good cafes to stop at. Good trip to Lulworth Cove and had a fab rest day sitting out the pouring rain doing the kitten jigsaw, drinking tea and watching telly (and even the Fleet Air Arm museum wasn’t too bad!) Reviewed by Frances5.0★Jun 2023 "Only thing l would say is on the site there was a garage and in the evening they use to burn material's which had a strong smell." This means that it was difficult to sit outside in the garden. Reviewed by Norman5.0★Jun 2023 "Lovely place to stay and great location." Reviewed by Victoria5.0★May 2023 "Hosts were very welcoming and helpful with any request." Would return any time. Comfortable and clean Reviewed by Robin5.0★May 2023 "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tom's Barn." The owners had left homemade jam, scones and clotted cream for us plus milk, which was greatly appreciated after a long drive. There was everything we needed at the barn including plenty of firewood which made for a very comfortable stay. Highly recommended! Many thanks to Carol and Glen Reviewed by Rhian5.0★Apr 2023 "Lovely property in a lovely location." Stayed as a family with a 4 and 6 year old. Very comfortable and lots of thoughtful touches. Very well equipped. Would happily stay again and recommend. Reviewed by Rachel5.0★Apr 2023 "Tom’s Barn is everything you would want in a holiday home - indeed - in a home." Could have moved in to be really honest. Spotlessly clean, everything required for your holiday. Peaceful surroundings and conveniently located. We visited Sherborne, Shaftsbury and Glastonbury during our four day break - all beautiful. The barn had a woodburner but we didn’t need it due to the excellent heating system - even though it was cold outside. Our very old dog Tom was catered for too. Welcome pack for him and for us. Superb!! Reviewed by Rosemary5.0★Feb 2023 "We were greeted by freshly baked scones and a welcome pack for our dog - lovely touches." The cottage was absolutely immaculate and contained everything we needed for a very restful week. The location was lovely and peaceful with views over the open countryside. We would thoroughly recommend Jack's cottage and would definitely return if in the area again. Reviewed by Susan5.0★Jan 2023 "The barn was lovely with everything you could need and more for a stay." On our arrival we found freshly made scones, jam and clotted cream along with some milk. A basket of chocolate, teas and cereal. As it was at Christmas time it was nicely decorated with a tree and even Christmas Crackers on the table. We spoke with the owner a couple of times who was welcoming and very helpful. Plenty of information was left in the barn. We would certainly book again. Reviewed by Beverley5.0★Dec 2022 "Just returned from spending a week at Tom's Barn." Everything was just perfect, from the scones, jam & clotted cream to welcome us & of course the doggie welcome pack. Lovely rural location, but handy for some lovely days out - Wells, Jurassic coast, Cheddar, Glastonbury & more. Tom's Barn has everything - warm & cosy, very comfy bed, excellent large bathroom & the range a real treat to use. Only regret it wasn't cold enough to light the log burner!!! Reviewed by Lynn5.0★Nov 2022 "Carole snd Glen were extremely helpful and accommodating and whilst being next door we were left to ourselves too." Logs were provided for our stay and as it was apple time we were able to help ourselves from the tree outside. Very nice barn Reviewed by Linda5.0★Oct 2022 "A spacious well equipped warm property of a very high standard." An ideal centre for visiting NT properties and good local restaurants. Reviewed by Iain5.0★Sep 2022 "Toms barn is one of the best equipped holiday cottages we have stayed in with absolutely everything you need to self cater and all very clean." The barn is very remote making it lovely & peaceful. Reviewed by Lynda5.0★Aug 2022 "If you are looking at this place and thinking do I then I would say book it." Went there for a week with my new partner and it was the break I needed but didn't know it. Looks pretty much as it does in the pictures and I hope it stays like this as we had a lovely time. Main bed was comfortable, blind made the room as dark as it could be, very little noise as you are only in a small cluster of properties. They've done their best to think of everything that you might need and with the range we enjoyed cooking even though on holiday and didn't plan to. Scones, were very welcome after the long journey and I even managed to save some of the home made jam for my toast in the morning, delicious. Thanks again Carol and Glen Reviewed by Debbie5.0★Jun 2022 "Thanks again Carol and Glen for a lovely stay, in your peaceful spot in Somerset." It had everything we needed plus the homemade scones - always a winner! The broadband for TV was rather slow but hopefully the new fibre will help that. Besides, it's time to switch off more whilst on holiday! Reviewed by Katie4.7★Jun 2022 "We would highly recommend staying at Tom's Barn, a perfect place to stay." We had a lovely welcome from Carol & Glen, they told us about the property & left scones & a treat bag for our dog - a really nice touch. So much space for a family of four, beautifully decorated & furnished & lovely to have parking spaces for two cars. In a really peaceful location but close enough to visit many lovely places that both Somerset & Dorset have to offer. Reviewed by Lorraine5.0★Jun 2022 "Very well equipped and furnished converted barn." Gorgeous home made scones and jam provided by Carol for us and even the dog had a treat bag. Enclosed garden ideal for dog and also a field for her to run around. Only recommendation I would make was to fence the side of the field which runs down to the road (although there is a hedge this is below the field level). Definitely recommend Tom's Barn and would return Reviewed by Lesley5.0★May 2022 "All round excellent." What more is there to say ? Reviewed by Anthony5.0★Apr 2022 "Toms barn was excellent everything we wished for for our break." Carol welcomed us to the property and we found everything that was promised and more. Reviewed by Alan5.0★Dec 2021 "Toms Barn is even nicer than it looks on the website." Spotless, warm, spacious and comfortable throughout with plenty of hot water and kitchen utensils. Karen was warm and welcoming and even left us some home made scones, cream and jam and a welcome pack for our dog, on our arrival. We slept like logs in the comfy beds as it was so peaceful. I would give 10/10 however the wi fi was a bit patchy and we could only watch Netflix in the double bedroom which was a bit of a shame. Other than that it was perfect and would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet break in the Somerset countryside. Reviewed by Sara Ann5.0★Oct 2021 "Ambience, style." - very good for wheelchair user. Great hosts Reviewed by Chris5.0★Oct 2021 "We enjoyed our two week stay in Tom's Barn very much." It is conveniently located yet in a peaceful rural location and the perfect base from which to explore Somerset. There were a number of interesting places to visit within easy reach (National Trust etc), a very nice "farm shop" / bistro close by and the coast is not too far away either. The well equipped accommodation was very comfortable and the thoughtful welcome pack was much appreciated too. The private garden area can be a real suntrap on fine days and all of these things combined helped make this an enjoyable and relaxing stay. Reviewed by Roy5.0★Sep 2021 "Carol made us very welcome, with a cream tea and welcome pack for our dog on arrival." The barn was well equipped with everything we could have wanted and the setting was amazing, so tranquil whilst being close enough to Yeovil as to not feel too remote! Reviewed by Sarah5.0★Sep 2021 "Really lovely property and the owners couldn't have been more helpful." The cottage has only recently been opened so everything was brand new and immaculate from a design and facilities perspective. Highly recommended, we look forward to coming back! Reviewed by Kelly5.0★Aug 2021 "Tom’s barn was perfect." We had a such a lovely fortnight’s holiday. The property was beautifully maintained, well equipped and very clean. It is also very quiet and private surrounded by stunning countryside. The owners, Carol and Glen, are very friendly and always on hand if needed.
