The perfect Stay.
My husband, brother and myself had a fabulous 4 day stay in the most perfectly converted Barn. The property is very well equipped and comfortable, the heating warmed up very quickly, fabulous far reaching views, a huge grassed outside space with patio. We all found the air unbelievable clean, (no traffic or arable nearby - pollution free!), we all slept very soundly. Wellington has a Waitrose and some interesting shops, the small town museum is worth visiting. Nearby - Holywell Inn provided good beer and food. We easily managed to visit the surrounding areas - Plymouth, Yeovil, Taunton. There is so much more to see - we will have to return. We'd like to thank Philip and Sarah for their lovely cottage and hospitality.
Excellent hosts. Wonderful house! Fully furnished. Very clean
This was a wonderful house to getaway to in the countryside. Sarah and Philip are the perfect hosts; they ensured that we had everything we needed; they are kind and hospitable. They keep the house very clean. The garden is very well kept with lots of space to play for the kids. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it to all.
Not enough superlatives to describe a stay at Little Owl, it is just fabulous from start to finish. Owners Sarah & Philip are absolutely lovely, so welcoming and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. I am reluctant to say how wonderful this place is, I would rather keep it my little secret!
This is the second time we have stayed, something we never do as we like to travel around and explore new areas. However our first stay left such a lasting impression that we just had to go back and we will definitely return again if Sarah & Philip will have us!
Little Owl is immaculately appointed and spotless without having a clinical feel. As soon as you walk in you immediately feel at home. Sarah & Philip have thought of everything that is needed to self cater and there are pubs and takeaways of every kind locally.
The lovely seaside town of Sidmouth is just a drive away and Brean & Minehead for more excitement if you have children.
For me however, just sitting out in the huge garden (amazing space for our dogs!) is a joy. It is so quiet and peaceful and I never tire of the view which is breathtaking.
A perfect place as a retreat to get away from it all.
I never want to leave Little Owl, I would love to stay forever...……..!
Little Owl a hidden gem!
A lovely place to stay and was a real pleasure, relaxing, lovely views and walks. Everything provided, and I do mean everything!! Even though the weather was none too kind to us (too many storms, Helene/Ali/Bronagh) we battered down the hatches in the cosy warmth of the barn. A big thank you to Sarah & Phillip for allowing us to stay along with the dogs who enjoyed their holibobs too :-)
We arrived in the evening and as soon as we opened the door wow. Spacious bedrooms, then when we went upstairs, large spacious lounge with comfy furniture and beautiful views (and horses!). Large well equipped kitchen with everything you could need, was a nice surprise to find fresh milk in the fridge and tea, coffee and sugar. After a good nights sleep in comfy beds we went to Taunton, which is only a 20 minute drive away. The next morning Philip came across to introduce himself and said if there was anything at all that we needed, we could pop across the road to see them. Very accommodating. The whole house was immaculate, despite Philip mentioning that pets were welcome (so clean, you wouldn't even know), we had a very relaxing long weekend and if you're looking for a 'get away from it all' holiday, this is definitely the place to go. We will hopefully be back soon.
Perfect base for our Somerset break
We had such a fabulous experience staying at The Little Owl Barn. Great facilities and a homely atmosphere. And a lovely welcome. We felt looked after and knew we could call on Sarah and Philip if we needed to. Thanks for a perfect holiday.
