The Barn was clean, spacious and very well equipped. We enjoyed the hot tub and steam room and shared pool. The table footie and pool was great for the children (and adults!) as also was the table tennis and basketball. Our stay just wasn't long enough!
We booked The Pictureworks for a birthday celebration and it proved to be absolutely perfect. First impressions were excellent and despite our arrival late at night Gill was on hand to show us around the facilities which were all brand new and immaculate.
With 9 of us spread over the 6 bedrooms it felt very spacious and it was perfectly laid out for socialising with a huge kitchen diner and very comfortable separate lounge area with a big TV and sound system which were easy to use. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and we managed to rustle up several meals during our stay including a full Sunday roast with all the trimmings. There were lots of cupboards and two big fridges and a separate freezer so there was plenty of space for food and drink.
The spa facilities were fantastic with a private steam room and sauna within the property as well as a heated pool which was shared with the other properties on the site but we never saw any of the other guests during our stay so it all felt very private. There was also a private hot tub on the patio which was wonderful. Everything was spotlessly clean and looked to be very well maintained.
The living areas have enormous bifold doors which open out onto a patio with a dining table and barbecue area beyond which is a lawn and then open countryside. We spent the weekend lounging around in the sunshine, making use of the barbecue and playing games on the lawn.
We also took a trip to the nearby Somerset Cider Brandy Company which Gill recommended and proved to be very enjoyable, offering walks around the orchards and adjoining fields and tasting of the delicious cider and brandy which is produced there. Definitely worth a visit!
Gill and Simon were wonderful hosts and were on hand whenever we needed anything but otherwise left us alone to enjoy the glorious peace and seclusion offered by the property. We absolutely loved our stay there and would be very happy to return.
