I have lived in Somerset all my life. I am passionate about the Somerset Levels as an area of outstanding natural beauty with a rich history. In 2013 I was granted permission to convert the shed into a holiday cottage which would be built on one storey and therefore accessible to those with disabilities. This was something I felt particularly passionate about as a Gurkha officer who has served in Afghanistan and known a number of wounded soldiers.
Why Owner chose Muchelney
The concept of Woodsfield Barn was always to build somewhere which would be welcoming and peaceful - a place where people can enjoy this stunning countryside.

Great property, rural but only 15 minutes from anywhere in Somerset. Perfect for people like its who like wildlife and somewhere for the dog to run about.
Good accommodation but not with a dog!
The actual accommodation is very good quality and comfortable. The shower was the easiest I've ever operated. However, we travelled with our young dog and didn't expect to see sheep literally in front of the patio and on the surrounding fields. Our dog had to be kept on a lead the whole time as the gates onto the road had a ten inch gap underneath to it was very easy for her to escape! She had got under the gate within 10 minutes of arrival.In the picture it shows the sheep in the adjoining field, which was fine, but it doesn't show the wire fencing in front of the patio cutting off the sheep field/garden?? We certainly wouldn't have booked this accommodation if we had known the sheep would have been near enough on the patio!The explanation in the description says the fields front and back are lawned/grass garden. Certainly no indication of being part of the thistled sheep field. However if you are travelling as a couple with no dog and are happy just to sit on the patio and admire the lovely views then this is the place for you.
Very clean and comfortable barn. peaceful location with lots to do nearby
Better than I had hoped
Ideal bolt hole for couple + dog. Very high spec. One of the best s/c properties we have stayed in. Thoughtful extras such as wine, cake, milk. Will definitely return.
A fantastic retreat.
Just what we are looking for, fantastic attention to detail warm and welcoming. We have booked to come back. Thank you Sandy.
A little gem
A lovely barn conversion on the Somerset Levels. Cosy with everything you need. Spacious double bedded bedroom. Lovely shower room with large fluffy towels. The kitchen/dining/ lounge takes up the rest of the barn. The fully equipped kitchen is of a high standard with views of the Abbey. Lounge area has a TV and DVD player. Very peaceful location surrounded wildlife and far reaching views through the large patio windows that fully open for the milder weather. The barn owl at dawn and dusk was a treat. We took 2 dogs, there was plenty of room for them in the barn. There is a patio with table and chairs and a large grass area to exercise dogs. The barn is in its own grounds secured by gates. Be aware there is a wire fence to an adjoining field with sheep at various times. We would recommend the local pubs, we found the food to be of a high standard and reasonably priced. A wonderful place to get away from it all. You can walk for miles along the river with access within half a mile of the barn.
