My partner and I stayed at The Byre for 5 nights from the 13th March. We contacted the owner Tim, who couldnt have been more helpful. We have never holidayed within the UK before and just wanted something to get away for a few days.

This place is amazing. It is set within its own grounds, not overlooked by anyone. The views which you can see on the photos are stunning and can not be done justice by the photos. The house is 5*. It is a barn conversion which is immaculate inside and we really can not fault anything. It has more than you would expect to be in a self-catering holiday cottage.
On arrival we had been left eggs, (from the hens just down from the house) wine and locally produced apple juice. This was a great touch and much appreciated. We took our dog too, there is no evidence that any pets had previously ever been in the house, or in fact any human! They must have a very good cleaning lady!

An added bonus to what is a fantastic cottage was the hot tub looking out over the views. Unfortunately my other half was pregnant so not able to go in but I enjoyed it. We invited two of our friends to come to the house for two of the nights which Tim was fine with. Overall he is very relaxed and responded immediately to any queries we had whilst staying there.

It is not a very balanced review because between us we can not think of anything bad to say!

If you want a quiet holiday cottage,at a good price, with amazing views, private, with an outdoor hot tub book this place, you will not be dissapointed. Although we would appreciate it if not too many people booked because we want to go a few times next year! The worst part of our time at The Byre was having to come home, honestly!

“Beautiful Cottage In An Excellent Location”
Reviewed October 15, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We booked the holiday cottage for ourselves, our 2 sons aged 15 and 13 and our dog.

When we arrived at the holiday cottage we were very pleased. The cottage was immaculate and the decor and furnishings were of excellent quality. The property stands in its own grounds and there is ample car parking. Both bedrooms are ensuite, the master bedroom has patio doors into the rear garden.

The cottage is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, even down to DVDs, console and games, a large selection of books, gas barbecue, sun loungers, washer, dryer, wifi etc. The owners had even left some bottles of cider, apple juice, eggs and a home made cake for our arrival.

There is a large rear enclosed garden which overlooks fields. The hot tub is also in the rear garden and it was lovely to spend time in the tub overlooking the beautiful scenery.

Nearby is the Grand Western Canal and the town of Wellington. We went a bit further afield and spent time in Torquay, Cheddar and Minehead, all of which were reasonable travelling distance.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property. Fantastic location with beautiful scenery.
