“Best ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We stayed for 2 weeks in Flora's Barn in October 2012. The Barn looked lovely on website but the actually surpassed all expectations, being so beautifully decorated and obviously well looked after and loved. It was even better when Bruce delivered a very welcome cream tea, all part of the service, which we had sitting in sunshine in the garden. We had our 2 black labradors with us, Nessie and Ghillie, so the well-fenced garden was ideal. As were the walks we could take straight from the Barn, although there were also great walks within 5 minutes drive in the car. This is definitely one of those places where, when we say we'll be back, we truly mean it. Well done Bruce.

Room Tip: The whole of this Barn is gorgeous, so four people sharing means that no-one will miss out on anythi...

There was a very warm wecome on our arrival complete with the most amazing cream tea, now be warned here, do not eat before your arrival the cream tea will keep you going for most of the day.
Flora's Barn is more than well equiped, very comfortable bed's and excellent decor. We would recommend this break for all.

The other reviewers are simply stating the facts. Flora's Barn, one of the two cottages, is perfect. No reservations. A wonderful warm welcome: a delicious and substantial cream tea, along with many other welcoming touches (farm eggs, flowers, a starter pack of logs ...). Inside: totally clean, very well equipped, very pleasant taste throughout, very comfortable beds, useful information.... Outside: wonderful view, the fun of the farm animals, games barn, splendid walks up on to the Quantock Hills right from the door, lots of lovely pubs close by. You should read the visitors' book, page after page of ecstasy!

What a beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting! My partner and I stayed for a few nights in order to explore the south-west a little better and go walking in the Quantocks. There's nothing better after a long day of walking to come back 'home' and sit in front of the fire. We would definitely recommend it to anyone in need of a relaxing break.

Having just spent a week in Flora's Barn with my mum and my 6 year old daughter I would recommend this cottage to anyone with taste! It is gorgeous and equipped with all. The website doesn't do it justice. I was hesitant about one of the bedrooms being downstairs but it caused no problems and my daughter was excited to be in an "upside down" house. If you're wondering whether to book up, do it, it's fabulous!

This our third year of holidaying in the Quantock Hills at Town End Farm Cottages in Crowcombe. We love the area and have always been lucky with the weather. Bruce welcomes us like old friends and the Old Bakery feels like a second home. The cottage is so well equipped, everything is thought of, and the cream tea when you arrive hits the spot perfectly. From the free range eggs from the chickens for breakfast each day to the comfy beds to climb into at night, these cottages are superb. We will most certainly be returning.

We stayed in the Old Bakery with our dog for a week of walking in the local area. The cottage was in a beautiful setting and the welcome was very warm. The area is perfect for dog walking, even if the climb onto the Quantocks is a bit of a challenge and gives you stunning views that you can't get by driving to the top. The cottage was a delight to get back to and very well equipped. We had a fantastic week and look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Both the Old Bakery and Floras Barn are brilliant - don't worry if you can't get your first...
