Lovely holiday home with great garden for dogs & kids to play in

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 adults, 3 kids & puppy staying in this lovely upside down barn. We had plenty of space in the house for all of us & an amazing enclosed space outside. The house was very well equipped with everything you needed. We were very lucky with the weather, even though it was February so all of us got to play in the garden outside. Philip the owner was very helpful. We walked 15 mins to the local pub where the food was very nice. The kids enjoyed going to Vivary high adventure ropes & also trampolining at Flip Out both of which were just a short drive away. We have already booked our next stay here.

Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent an amazing family Christmas at Little Owl Barn. We couldn't fault the property or its facilities - home from home. Philip (our host) was most accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. We highly recommend this property and wouldn't hesitate to visit again.

Idyllic, cosy place with all you need for self catering and to relax.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Little Owl Barn. It's very comfortable, luxurious and well equipped for a self catering holiday. The views from the upper floor are gorgeous and the 2 paddocks are ideal for pets to romp around.

Philip is very welcoming and helpful.

There is so much gorgeous Somerset countryside to explore just outside the door or a short drive away. The nearby town of Wellington has all you need.

We highly recommend Little Owl Barn and intend to visit again.

Fabulous - 5 stars are not enough!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Little Owl Barn.

We stayed with our 2 dogs and the huge safe enclosed garden was great for them.

Philip and Sarah are lovely, nothing was too much trouble and they lived close by should we have needed them.

The property is beautiful, everything in fabulous condition and SCRUPULOUSLY clean.

Everything you need to self cater is provided, nothing has been forgotten.

It is the best place we have stayed and I cannot recommend the property and it's owners too highly.

We will definitely be returning if they will have us!

Thank you Sarah and Philip for a lovely holiday - just what we needed.
