In the summer you can open the bi-fold doors to the sun-trapped garden to let the outside in, or in the cooler months snuggle up on the comfy sofas while watching your favourite programme on the Smart TV. The perfectly equipped kitchen has an electric Range ovens and hobs, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher , and is a great space for cooking lazy breakfasts or old family favourites. There is also a utility/boot room with a washing machine, useful when returning from outdoor activities and for drying coats, boots and dogs.

We loved our stay in Home Barn. We were warm and cosy through a particularly cold spell, and had all the creature comforts one could want. Friendly owners and a magnificent view plus a few friendly cows. We would definitely visit again except we were moving into our new house not far away.

We are so pleased we found Home Barn for our last minute New Year getaway. We felt so comfortable the moment we stepped through the door, so clean and modern. Festive treats waiting for us was a bonus. We enjoyed walks with our Spaniel from the doorstep along multiple footpaths, we parked at White Sheet Hill and walked a circular route to Mere..

Lovely spacious barn, very comfortable and well equipped. Lovely comfy sofas, all recliners! Great size area for the dogs but have recommended they put wire on the gates as our dogs were small and could fit through the gaps. Had an issue with petrol/oil smell from boiler room which meant we couldnt use the utility room, but hopefully that will get Read moreresolved. Would definitely recommend, as long as smell sorted!

Fabulous property, clean, warm and with all the mod cons which makes for a very relaxing break in the peaceful Wiltshire countryside. Only negative and its a small one is the property description still references a pub in walking distance but this has long since closed so info needs refreshing.

Very comfortable, well equipped barn conversion just off the main Gillingham to Frome road. Whilst on a working farm the property points away from the main working area so is generally quiet and you feel on your own. Owners very helpful and the biscuits, milk and eggs were appreciated. Plenty of places to visit nearby. We visited Stourhead, MontacuRead morete, Sherborne, Frome, Devizes and Clarks Village. Despite being quite close to home we expect to return again in the future.

If you want a peaceful holiday this is it. Walks are all around the area, if you have dogs I suggest Stourhead western is a superb location. As there are no nearby shops, planning meals are essential. Luckily Sainsburyss and Waitrose do deliver.
