About Gill Rickards
Hello, my name is Gill, having worked many years as a senior Corporate Executive I retired 6 years ago to set up my own business hosting guests. We have designed, renovated and furnished all our houses ourselves and its a full time job to make sure they are always perfect when our guests arrive. I have three sons, one working, one at University and one still at school plus Simon my husband and two dogs called Daysy and Buster. We live on site so we can make sure we are always there if guests need us but invisible if they don't. We have a team of people who all make sure that the barns are everything you would want them to be, from Penny our housekeeper who has been with us 9 years to Kirsty who looks after all the admin.
Gill Rickards purchased this Barn in 2006
Why Gill Rickards chose Langport
The Threshing Barn has been recently renovated as a superb luxury retreat in Somerset that is aimed at those looking for a private, rural idyllic break in the country complete with private hot tub, and outside heated pool. Somerset is a great county to visit with so much to offer right on your doorstep.
What makes this Barn unique
At our property you can take the time to unwind, escape and relax with the fantastic, luxurious facilities, the barns can accommodate up to 13 people with enough space to enjoy eating and entertaining together but have the peace and quiet that you need while on holiday. There is amazing outside space, a private hot tub and peaceful gardens overlooking fields.

Ideal property for a large family gathering in a pleasant location
We stayed in the Threshing Barn and Apple Barn (7 adults & 4children & 2 babies) both barns are beautiful, both with character.
The swimming pool is stunning & so clean. The facilities for children are truely amazing - ping pong tables, football tables, toys for all ages, games for all ages - everyone is catered for.
The hot tub & sauna are wonderful, lovely adult luxury in the evening & private too.
The barns are child friendly too & there is plenty of space for everyone. There is a highchair, changing mat & cotbeds. The rooms are all spacious. The small double in the Threshing Barn is rather small but perfect for a couple. We were looked after very well by Clive (in Gill's absence) & despite a problem with dishwashers, nothing was too much trouble.
The town of Langport is beautiful- lovely walks beautiful cafes & a lovely butchers! Well worth a visit & only 10 minutes away by car. There was a market on Saturday too.
We were just sad we were only staying at this beautiful place for a weekend!
The baby birds being feed by Mummy above the kitchen door were an added bonus - the wildlife is amazing too.
Definitely worth a stay & we hope to go back next year.
Birthday celebration my Mum &sister
We had a great weekend in The Threshing Barn.
As the weather was so good our only criticism is we would liked swimming to be allowed later - 8pm.

Retreat for six
Warm cozy and clean. Hot tub great. Garden and location very lovely. Great family size lounge, good size kitchen and dining room. We stayed for 10 days and there was not enough storage for our clothes in most bedrooms, however the beds were super comfy. An excellent base from which to explore the surrounding areas. We appreciated the welcome cake thank you !
Well equipped for a large group
Good location for visiting other regions in the area. Nice large lounge and a well equipped kitchen. Pool area is large enough to accommodate everyone and there are plenty of sun loungers/chairs. A couple of the bedrooms are on the small size which would be ok for children but was a bit snug for adults. There was very little room for clothes/bags etc. Overall a nice place to stay .
We had a lovely time celebrating a special birthday with all the family. Great barn with everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Ages in our party ranged from 11 weeks to 60 years with a couple of toddlers. Nice comfy beds and plenty of bathrooms. Would definitely recommend
