“Everything we could have wanted and more”
Reviewed August 23, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The location was so tranquil. The barn overlooked fields, sheep and cows and a gentle hill. There was almost no background noise and at night it was dark enough for a really good star gazing! But if you have a car it is not far to any amenities.

The barn itself is kitted out with everything you could ever want or think of. No effort has been spared from making this into a real home away from home. With a very modern feel the house is clean, fresh and bright. The master bedroom is a haven in itself; with one whole wall a glass door onto a balcony that overlooks the Mendip hills. The barn is spacious and very comfortable. And everything works!!!!

Our kids had the best time with all the outdoor space, there was always something to do or see. The barn is about half an hour from many, many attractions that could have kept us busy for far longer than our stay. The vegetable patch was a real bonus where we picked fresh veg and popped it straight onto our bbq right there.

Justin and Sarah were the ultimate hosts. They were always available to give us their time, advice, painkillers,etc. Nothing was too much. We all agree that it was an unbelievable holiday rental and we would very happily return there! (The sooner the better!!)

“Perfect property with excellent attention to detail”
Reviewed August 5, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

From the moment we arrived for our 7 night stay, everything about this property was perfect. Our shopping had been received and put away in cupboards. A home made cake was waiting for us, as was a beautiful flower arrangement. The property is purpose built and ultra modern. It has everything you could want for a week's stay. The owners had even produced a kitchen garden so that we could pick fresh vegetables and fruit. The owners were attentive without overwhelming us. The local area is filled with interesting things to do and we found that 7 days was insufficient to explore the local area. We were very sorry to leave and have already recommended the property to friends.

Anne....thank you so much for your very kind review...it was a delight to host you and your family. We never realised there was that much to do in the area and we've lived here 20 years. You were a joy to host and I hope we see you all again.

“A piece of heaven, in Somerset”
Reviewed July 26, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My stay in Shortwood Barn last week was perfect! It's a wonderfully quiet spot with stunning views, particularly from the bed in the Master Bedroom. The whole place is finished to a very high spec; showers, baths, utility room; right down to the towels and bed linen. It is modern, light and spacious, whilst still feeling homely with a wood burning stove, comfy sofa and TV.

As a professional chef, having access to the vegetable garden was amazing, being able to pick fresh herbs, salads and courgettes. The kitchen is well equipped and eating the fruits of my labours in the garden on a sunny evening was a bonus. A real find!

Hands down the nicest place to stay in the area, excellent value, I cannot praise enough!

“Stunning barn conversion in gorgeous surroundings”
Reviewed May 22, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This beautiful barn conversion certainly has the wow factor and a relaxed comfortable feel. Set back from the road with gorgeous views, this lived up to all our expectations and more. Stayed here in March with girlfriends for the weekend, all of us in need of a break from busy city life - we were not disapointed! The huge kitchen was equipped with all mod cons, in fact the whole place has been done to such a high spec we did not want to leave! The view from the master bedroom was very special and has a balcony with a view that's perfect for enjoying a glass of wine or two. In fact all of the bedrooms had their own unique aspects and beds were also very comfy. I would not hesitate to return here or recommend to anyone wanting to visit this lovely part of the world.
