We have just stayed at the Hay Barn for the second time. The acccommodation is perfect - so comfy and in such a spectacular location. We loved spending time on the patio looking at the amazing views and walking the dogs on the Quantock hills.
Everything at Hay Barn is so well thought out, from the beautiful decor, the welcome refreshment pack to the walking guides and maps. So many fabulous places to eat and drink nearby, although we also used the fully fitted kitchen to cook our own dinners as we didn't want to lose any time on the patio with its spectacular views! Shanti and Malcolm are so accommodating and friendly, it really is a stress-free holiday. I can't recommend it highly enough and we will certainly be back soon.
Perfect countryside location at the foot of the Quantocks with an amazing terrace for BBQs and amazing views. The property has been converted to a very high standard- everything is very comfortable. There are also two excellent pubs within walking distance.
Triscombe is perfectly situated for anyone interested in riding, walking or cycling on the Quantocks. The 2 main barns are stunning & perfect for anyone staying at any time of year. I stayed in the Groom's Studio which suited my needs for this particular visit as & I was out most of the day, every day & in the evenings. However, the Grooms Studio has nowhere of its own for you to sit outside, though as the other barns were not occupied I was fortunate to be able to sit on one of their patios late one afternoon when the weather was good. The Grooms Studio has a microwave & small hob but no oven which was disappointing but liveable for a few days. Overall though a lovely stay.
Level of comfort was perfect as was the situation. The best bit was the home-grown leeks for tea - just amazing. Very near all of Somerset's attractions: Dunster castle; the Jurassic coast; the Quantock hills for walks and mountain biking; quaint towns and cities. We took the bikes yet if I still had horses, I would definitely take them too as the facilities are great for them.
We stayed for a long weekend and on this particular stay we decided to make full use of our immediate surroundings using the equine facilities on site and went for great walks in the beautiful countryside on our doorstep. We are planning a future stay in the summer as we loved everything about Triscombe Barns and hope to do more exploring...the steam train ride to Minehead is on our list.

Any comments on what you particularly enjoyed and how we could have improved the experience for you?:
Our whole experience at Triscombe Barns was superb. It was great for our family of 3 generations. The accommodation is lovely, the equine facilities are just as good and the breaktaking outdoors completed a fab stay! Huge thanks to owners Shanti and Malcom for everything!
Walking, horseriding or just relaxing. You can do it all here! The barns are spacious and modern, with all you need and more! The Quantocks are really beautiful. If you have a horse it will also be very happy in the nice stables.
I will definitely come again!
