Introducing Stone Barn
Built in February 1879, according to the writing on one of the beams, Stone Barn was once a stone mason’s workshop. We have a picture of a little Victorian girl in a crisp white pinny and large hat sat on the wall next to a winch used to haul the slabs of marble up to the top floor to be engraved. The smaller of the two barns was used to store supplies for The Old Sweet Shop. We have retained the large branches and tree trunks used to hold the roof up – it’s worth a look when you’re putting the recycling out!
When fully renovated, it will have a modern open plan living, dining, and kitchen area on the top floor, with two large en-suite bedrooms downstairs, and a smaller cosy ‘snug’ upstairs. There’ll be a hot tub, patio and lawned area with flower beds, and we’ll have on-site parking for one car.
More details will follow later in 2018.
We know the importance of going the extra mile to delight our guests. That’s why our returning guests receive special treatment. We design and furnish the interiors with our visitors’ various needs in mind, hoping they will enjoy one cottage so much they’ll want to try another.
We’re delighted that visitors to our cottages bring essential income to an area of West Somerset that struggles economically compared to the rest of the UK. We encourage everyone to shop and eat locally as well as visit the local sites when they are here and thank you for doing so.
