Why John Were chose Castle Cary
The Hayloft is on the same area of land as our main residence. As a former out-building it came as package.
What makes this Barn unique
We moved to Castle Cary from London a few years ago and love its calm, friendly, independent atmosphere.

GREAT LOCATION, VERY ROOMY
Very much enjoyed our stay here. Plenty of room to relax in. Especially enjoyed the fresh bread, butter, eggs, milk and apple cider. A very nice treat! Highly recommend this home if you are in the area.
Super cottage in the lovely village of Castle Cary. Large rooms and plenty of space inside and out. Well looked after by our host. Will definitely try to stay here again!
Thanks very much and would love to have you back.
Hayloft is in such a great location right in the centre of pretty Castle Cary. Five minutes walk or less to all the pubs, shops, and galleries.
The accommodation is very clean and nicely decorated.
The owner makes his own apple juice and cider so there are complementary bottles in the fridge along with butter, milk and a loaf of bread and eggs from their chickens.
It makes for a lovely stay in a beautiful location summer or winter. In a town yet you also feel very much in the country as it surrounds the property.
Thanks very much Laura. It was a pleasure having you.
Spacious beautifully presented, fully equipped property quietly tucked away in lovely town
Warm welcome from John. Brilliant location. A cottage we feel at home in. We do not want to leave. Would highly recommend.
Thanks Caroline. Hope the wedding was good!
Perfect location in the lovely town of Castle Cary
We really enjoyed the quiet, privacy and beautiful garden to look out on as well as the proximity to the town's lovely shops, galleries and cafes.
The house was very clean, well equipped and as expected. The access arrangements were simple and the information provided by the owner was clear and thorough. The welcome pack of local produce was a really nice touch.
All in all a fab stay. Thank you.
Thank you Clare!
We needed a weekend base whilst attending a family wedding and the Hayloft perfectly fitted the bill. Supremely comfortable beds and complete silence (a wonderful novelty when you live in a city!) meant we all slept very well. The owner generously provided locally made bread and butter, eggs from his beautiful, very friendly chickens and homemade apple juice, all of which were delicious. We had everything we needed in the way of equipment and facilities and were very happy to have found the Hayloft. Many thanks for contributing to our wonderful weekend.
Great to hear you had a good time Liz. Thanks for the lovely review and hope to host you again.
Castle Cary is a beautiful, small and friendly market town with a thriving heart of shops, pubs and restaurants.
