A stunning cottage set within the lovely village of Barrington, the ideal spot for a relaxing Somerset break for a small families or a pair of couples.

Perfectly situated in the peaceful village of Barrington, on the edge of the Somerset Levels, this is a great spot for those looking for a relaxing break to explore Somerset, Devon and Dorset.

There is plenty to do in terms of retail therapy as well, with Clarks Village and the larger towns of Yeovil and Taunton nearby.

This area is the perfect place to relax in front of the flatscreen TV and watch all your favourite shows after a day of walking the local area.

I can't fault Budds Farm Cottage or the hosts at all. I was very sad to leave - my dogs and I were so at home. The cottage was spotlessly clean, we had everything needed and the location was perfect. Such a generous and thoughtful welcome basket too. Excellent.

Cottage with loads of character - after a few knocks you learn to keep your head down. Barrington is very peaceful. Suzanne & Graham are excellent hosts and have clearly understood what it takes to keep the customer happy. The garden is a real cottage garden and very tranquil, although during our stay the weather precluded much use. Plenty of pathsRead more connecting neighbouring villages, and very few stiles (we have a 28kg greyhound...). Hide
