                                                            This is a well thought out, tastefully decorated and well equipped cottage. Clean and tidy with extremely comfortable beds! The surrounding area is quite breathtaking, the local pub very welcoming. A short drive from both Bristol and Bath so theres plenty to do. Bath is to be highly recommended. Thank you Judith, for your warm welcome and for a lovely getaway. Sallye and ladies

                                                            This was our second visit and I whole heartedly recommend Indigo Barn to anyone seeking accommodation for a large group. The property owner lives next door and she gave excellent customer service, welcoming us with home made bread, local cheese, butter,chutney and cider. This venue was perfect, with enough space for us all. It was very clean, spacious and relaxing,with very good parking facilities. Its location in the Somerset Levels is rural, but Glastonbury, Wells, Street and Cheddar are all a short drive and there are opportunities to visit small nature reserves also. Wedmore, about 2 miles away has several interesting shops and we had an excellent meal at The Swan,a very popular place.
