                                                              We stayed at this stunning property from May 13th for 7 days of bliss . Judith the owner has done herself proud with this beautiful property . Judith greeted us on arrival and showed us around the property , the fridge had fresh milk , butter inside and bread , jam and marmalade was left on the work top for us . The cottage has been decorated to a very high standard and I would love to own a property like this . Everything is close by , Bath , Cheddar , Glastonbury etc all within 20/30 mins drive . The local pub , well it really is local , just a two minute stroll away . A warm welcome was given to us in the pub , the food is very good to . We took our dog with us and he enjoyed his adventures , he was made very welcome . All in all a great weeks holiday , lots of relaxing walks and trips to the beach . Would definitely return on day . Thanks Judith :-) Gary & Phyllis

                                                              We had a lovely stay at Mowbarton barn, two family's catching up with newborns each. Plenty of room for both families rituals with a great 'East Wing' 'West Wing' layout. Lovely surroundings and with the weather hotter than mainland Europe, sat in the courtyard, we all felt we'd been transported to the south of France. Couldn't fault facilities at all, very clean, stylish and practical at the same time. As another reviewer said, the photo's don't do it justice. We'll be back!!
