“Just perfect for our needs”
Reviewed 2 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Booked a 2 night break in the Barton Annex to use as a base for visiting relatives and for a spot of sightseeing (Wells, Glastonbury, Cheddar Gorge). The annex was ideal for our needs being clean, comfortable & well appointed. We received a warm & friendly welcome from the owners and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property if you are a couple looking to spend either a few days or a week in Somerset.

“Restfull Stay”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

The Barton Annexe owners have thought of everything in this self catering converted barn building.
From the comfortable beds, very good kitchen, so much storage, nice furnishings and decor.
Very quiet at night. Easy to reach on B or A roads. Good pubs abound throughout the area. White Horse in Castle Cary and the Ring of Bells in Ashcott and many more.
Lots of places close by to see. Wells is particularly fascinating. Ham Wall reserve gave an amazing glimpse of a Kingfisher fishing!
Enjoyed our 7 night stay.
Jan and Paul are nice & easy to get along with and not at all intrusive.

“Perfect accommodation in quiet surroundings.”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed for a week in the middle of August in this quiet, single storey accommodation, while we visited surrounding areas. Not far from any of the local small towns and near enough to visit Monkey World and Longleat. With friendly, helpful owners and every amenity you could wish for, I can recommend The Barton Annexe for an excellent holiday.

“Lovely Well Equipped Holiday Home”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Lovely modern cottage with everything we needed. Comfortable beds, clean, plenty of towels, milk in the fridge, tea and coffee. Nice lounge area and dining area along with separate kitchen, shower and toilet. Off street parking area and Wifi. Highly recommended for a quiet holiday near to many things of interest including Hayes Motor Museum 5 mile away. Friendly and helpful hosts.

“Perfect for peace and quiet”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

When you open the door and walk into the accommodation you have booked, the first questions are normally "did I pick a good one and would I stay here again?" My wife and I said yes to both, it was perfect from the moment we walked into the annexe. It is tastefully decorated with plenty of room. The bedroom is curtained off to separate it from the sitting area, which itself is separate from the kitchen. There are enough windows to give plenty of light and unlike most of the hotels I have stayed in they actually open to give you fresh air. The Barton Annexe is situated in the very small village of East Lydford. It is a very peaceful retreat, no traffic noise, just the quiet Somerset countryside. So if you like noise it is not for you. The accommodation has an electric hob, fridge, microwave and an electric kettle, for those who want to have a meal or a drink. The electric shower gives controllable hot water which is set in a wet room. The toilet is in it's own little room. There is a TV if you fancy a stay in. It will be a bit small for those of us used to a 50" set. There are a pair of rear doors that open out to a small area where there are a Bistro table and two chairs for you to enjoy your drink outside. But the scenery is blocked by the wall of a storage shed directly in front of you. Basically a good centre to explore Somerset and good enough to stay in if it is raining or you are too tired to go out. Recommended.
