Lovely cottage and owners with thoughtful eco friendly details. Perfect, peaceful holiday escape. Highly recommended.
We have just spent the weekend at the beautiful Crotchet Barn and wish we could have spent longer there. We were delighted to find out that we were the very first guests and boy, we were not disappointed! The pictures really do not do it justice, as the Barn is finished to a high standard with all your home comforts at your disposal. Joanna, the host was such a warm, friendly lady and had fabulous suggestions of where to eat and visit. Bearing in mind, that we visited a week after the opening of lock down, we managed with Joanna’s help, to eat in the lovely Mango Tree, Taunton and Mooli Foodworks, Wellington both of which I would highly recommend. We also took a walk along the Bridgewater to Taunton Canal which was beautiful and walked the public footpath just below the barn and saw the sunset! The Barn is in a lovely location which is within 30 mins drive of Taunton, Wellington, Bridgewater and Glastonbury another must! Oh, and of course a spot of retail therapy in Clarks Village if you so wish! The weather was very kind to us, enabling us to just chill out and relax in the tranquil gardens. All in all, I highly recommend you check Crotchet Barn out! Thank you again Joanna!
I LOVED staying here! The barn was spacious and bright and set in a lovely quiet area. The bed was huge and super comfy, the kitchen had everything I needed, the garden was secluded and full of butterflies and birds. Jo was there whenever I needed her. Great place. Highly recommend.
As Vegans ourselves, finding a place to stay that is also Vegan is refreshing! From the welcome food gift to the products used in the house, they’re all Vegan. The barn is a decent size and the 3 of us never felt that we were on top of each other. The summerhouse is a great spot to sit and read a book. The welcome pack gave us a few ideas for walks, which we tried a couple of. Location wise its within easy reach of Glastonbury which we enjoyed, although we managed to pick a day where all the Vegan restaurants were shut! The bakers do a great range of Vegan goodies though! It was great and we can’t wait to go back.
We really enjoyed our stay at Crotchet Barn. It’s a clean, open and welcoming space that was really comfortable to be in. The sun room and garden are highlights, and the bed was really comfy! Jo was easy to communicate with and we were really grateful for the extra touches she and Andy added to our stay.
Oh what a wonderful stay we had! This beautiful cottage is everything you’d want and more. The hosts are so welcoming and the little touches they did, made us feel very welcome. Spotlessly clean, a home away from home. We didn’t want to leave! To anyone wanting a peaceful break away, this is the place for you.
Lovely place to stay, the cottage has lots of character. Was amazing to see the stars at night due to the rural location (no light pollution). Hosts left fresh fruit and veg, which was a lovely gesture. The bed is huge and there are hard, soft and medium pillows to pick from. A good sized t.v, lots of appliances and lovely garden space. Many thanks for the lovely get away 🙂
The sheer ambience and tranquility at Crotchet Barn is absolutely beautiful. The owners Jo and Andy are such kind people and are happy to chat, offer help and advice, or leave you to enjoy the retreat they offer. Nestled in the heart of rural Somerset, if you are looking for a getaway from the humdrum and demands of modern life, this is the perfect place to come too.
The kindest most thoughtful hosts, the most perfect location and a beautiful home away from home. I was there for 2 weeks seeking some peace and tranquility and that’s exactly what I got. Thank you for everything! Xxx
We really enjoyed our stay here. It’s a great base location for Somerset and North Devon. The kitchen is really well equipped making it easy to make meals. Great hosts who provided some nice touches upon arrival and kindly did a last minute request for us when they didn’t have to. Also really appreciated they provided recycling facilities including food waste. I often have to take items home so it’s great to see hosts who are taking additional steps to help the environment.

5 STARS! KARYN BRIGHT Fantastic cottage, warm and cosy; it offered a lovely pause in between our busy family Christmas celebrations!

5 STARS! TERESA THOMAS Beautiful place to stay in the heart of the Somerset Levels. Clean and tidy and has everything we needed. We will come back.

5 STARS! EMMA STOREY We had a great stay in the property. We especially liked the dog friendly set up like having dog towels, spare bowls, treats, poo bags, a hose and a little room to get them all clean before they head indoors – very helpful in winter!

5 STARS! LOUISE SPENCER Cannot recommend this place highly enough if you want comfort, cosiness and relaxation! The bed was absolutely massive and so comfortable. Accommodation is well equipped and its close enough for lovely countryside walks before vegging out in front of the fire for pure R&R. the night sky was just the icing on the cake.

5 STARS! KENDAL SWANEPOEL Perfect getaway for myself, partner and dog 🙂 The cottage was much bigger than expected with your own private garden. We really enjoyed our weekend and will definitely be back.

5STARS! ED BOYLE A quiet and peaceful home from home run with thoughtfulness and care. Your Somerset getaway begins here!
