We stayed at Barrington Barn for 5 nights during August, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodation, a post and beam style custom-built barn, had lots of character, was comfortable and in a great location. The owners were very friendly and welcoming as well.

The small village of Barrington itself is very idyllic, with a nice pub, a lot of picture-postcard cottages, and friendly locals. It is also in a handy central location for exploring both the north and south coasts and interior of Somerset.

It might be worth pointing out that the barn, including sleeping areas, is very open plan, which only allows for limited privacy. We actually liked this aspect of the place, but it is worth bearing in mind.

Will definitely stay again!

Stayed here as we had a wedding in Ilminster. The barn is situated in the owners garden with beautiful views. The barn looks small but was very spacious and accommodated 3 adults and 3 teenagers very comfortably, it felt like home. There was everything you needed. Janet, the owner was very friendly and helpful. It's a place I would stay in again also great value for money.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 6 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Originally from Somerset we visit at least once a year and have now found the perfect base to visit friends and enjoy Gods County.

Bernd has really worked hard to present the perfect location to rest and relax while being in travelling distance to Yeovil / Taunton and Bath if you so desire. The log fire was always burring and Bernd always ensured that there was fuel to burn. You have a cooker / washing machine / shower and the ability to sleep around 7 people although I'd recommend a small family. The top deck bedroom has an amazing view and is best enjoyed during dusk with a glass of wine.

I wholeheartedly recommend this barn to others from all walks of life at the detriment to it becoming popular and me missing out on securing dates in the future. It truly is a retreat to get away from the grinds of busy life.

It is a drive to the shops so plan this accordingly, however the local pub offers food from 10 - 2 and then 6 - 10 so if you don't fancy cooking head down there and enjoy the local Thatchers Cider.

“Friendly owners and relaxing break.”
Reviewed 30 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Nice long weekend stay in the Barn in Barrington village. The Barn is next to Barrington Court and grounds which is worth a visit.
The Barn was comfortable and accommodating with a lovely log burner and owners were very friendly.
Barrington Boar Pub in the Village is worth a visit. Very friendly with good food and drink.

The addition of Wifi and Freeview TV could be a welcoming bonus to the Barn.
