perfect central location to visit major Somerset attractions (Cheddar Gorge, Bath Roman museum and Assembly rooms, Wells Cathedral, Glastonbury Tor and Abbey, the sea is only at 25 km). Very warm and helpful host.
When we arrived the pictures didn't do the Dairy Barn justice. Helen could not have been more welcoming and informative about the local area. The Dairy Barn comes fully equipped for everything you may need in a self catering property. Roomy and clean the walls had pictures of Draycott from times gone by. The views drom the balcony were amazing and on a vlear day you could see for miles.The local pub quiz at the strawberry special is a must. Helen offers great advice on places to eat and visit. Our children fell in love with Florence and Fred the parrots and Helen was brilliant and patient with all their questions regarding the parrots etc. I would definitely recommend staying at The Dairy Barn. I'm sure we will again.
Absolutely everything you could want. Comfortable, immaculate, and all home from home comforts,the Dairy Barn is the best we have stayed at... and an excellent base for travelling round the area.!! Cheddar gorge on the doorstep and Wells on the second step!! The owner Helen,is so helpful and she has an extremely high standards.
Will recommend this to friends and will be top of the list when we come back for a return visit.
We were visiting family in the local area and this property was ideally located.
The property is set out in a upside down nature to make the most of the views. There is a large living room/kitchen upstairs with a glass fronted balcony with seating which has stunning views.
There are two x two seater sofas and two more formal chairs in the living area, TV with freeview which turns on an arm so you can see it fully in the living or dining area. My only observation is that there could do with being a couple of comfortable chairs or a further sofa as if 6 people are staying the living room area is limited on seating.
There are also books, games and jigsaws for all ages.
The kitchen has everything you need and is very well equipped- every utensil pot and pan thinkable, large toaster, kettle, fridge freezer, microwave,... The list goes on!!
The barn was warm and clean with the odd mark or scuff but nothing that in any way affected our stay.
One double bedroom is upstairs which is comfortable and again well equipped with access on to the balcony. The only thing I would change is the plastic undersheet which was noisy and hot and we were there in minus 2 temperatures outside! So in summer this would be unpleasant.
Downstairs there is a fully equipped laundry room, two bedrooms - one twin and one super king which can also be a twin. Again both rooms are well equipped. Each bedroom also has colour coded towels which is a really good idea.
There is one bathroom which was clean with lots of towel rail and cupboard space. The shower worked really well and again everything you needed was provided. The only downside is this is the only toilet and if 6 people are staying it can be a little congested but with a bit of consideration and organization this didn't cause problems with the 4 of us who stayed.
I would without hesitation stay here again. It is a lovely property and perfectly located for exploring cheddar, Glastonbury, wells, street, western super mare and all of the surrounding areas. Also the owner was welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. Finally the booking process was easy and pain free.
