“Cosy retreat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My husband and I had a lovely time at Stokewood barn over Easter, it is situated in a very private secluded area, over looking a large field with sheep! At the back of the barn there was a small garden which continued into a nature reserve. The forest was carpeted with bluebells - It was so beautiful. The only the sound you could hear were bird singing, sheep baaing, peaceful. At night the log stove kept the barn warm and cosy. We enjoyed the stay very much and highly recommend it!

“Beautiful barn- beautiful location!”

Charming cosy accommodation with all you would need for a quiet get away. There's a lovely pub/restaurant less than 10 minutes walk away in the village and lots to do in surrounding area. Will definitely be going back.

“Didn't want to leave”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

A wonderful holiday over Xmas and new year. Lovely snug cottage. Plenty of room for two, bigger than pictures suggest, cooked an Xmas roast no problem. Great pub down the road, easy access to Wells and Cheddar. Owners very friendly and helpful, even though we arrived in the middle of the night. Poor phone signal in the area but great wifi included.

“Cosy Retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Stokewood Barn is a cosy one room plus shower room self catering studio. All basic kitchen equipment is there plus a mini dishwasher. Wi fi internet was also great. Nice secluded spot on the edge of a private woodland. Could hear the owls hooting when I opened the door. Wood stove for keeping us warm was lovely, with all wood provided. Host (lives next door) very friendly but not intrusive.

We Stayed at Stokewood for a 3 night break but wished it was longer. The accommodation was excellent and very cosy. The area is beautiful with lots to do very close by. We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We would like to go again very soon.

“Excellent accommodation in a beautiful setting”

I stayed here on my own for a week, looking for a quiet place where I could relax, go for walks, and get some reading and writing done. The Stokewood Barn was ideal for this, and is conveniently located in beautiful countryside between Wells and Cheddar. The barn was in very good condition, and there were a number of additional touches that made me feel at home immediately (milk, tea, coffee, biscuits etc.) Honor did a great job of explaining where to find everything, and the barn is very well-equipped.

A very quite oasis in the middle of wonderful country side. A superbly peaceful stay with all the convenience of being self catering. The facilities are great and the setting just brilliant. Watching the wild life and the sun setting was a treat, even the badger was friendly.
