Beautiful countryside setting accessible to many attractions
Bright, clean and welcoming farmhouse cottage. Spacious, airy and very well equipped. High quality furniture and finishings.. Delightful setting and outdoor courtyard. Friendly, accommodating owner.
5 Star***** Four Adults, Three Nights Stay, to return again one day.
We decided to have a long weekend away Friday to Monday. Wanted no more than a couple of hours drive from home, a barn conversion, wood burner, peace and quiet, and somewhere scenic. Found Courtyard Barn, it has the aforementioned, and more.
The drive was pretty, and straightforward, the barn has the scenery, and is so very peaceful. Set within Lois Farm. It has privacy and lovely views at the back of the property over fields and open skies. On arrival, Tanya greeted us and kindly gave us a tour. It felt so homely, super clean, light & bright, fresh flowers were a nice touch, beautifully furnished with three spacious bedrooms two bathrooms.
Our trip was to give my folks a change of scenery, and to celebrate mums 75th birthday. I enjoyed the kitchen/diner as a room, super views and sunsets, preparing & cooking supper with every kitchen utensil and gadget to hand. The radio was most welcome too, Thank you.
Being here in January, we made good use of the wood burning stove and it was easy to get going and kept our toes toastie. I had not realised until leaving on the Monday, how relaxed I felt. Personally I had slept so soundly, the beds just perfect in size, the quality bed linen, and the peaceful location. The owners Tanya and Chris have made this home from home, they are friendly, helpful and thoughtful. We drove away feeling somewhat sad, as we all said that we could have stayed longer and that we would like to return, perhaps in the warmer weather. It is worthy of its 5 stars and it has been decorated and furnished to a high standard. The four of us had a very enjoyable and most memorable stay.
Dear Paul & Amanda
Thank you so much for your very kind review. It was a pleasure to have you stay here at Lois Farm with us. I am so pleased you left feeling relaxed and well rested. I am glad you liked the barn and you found it had everything you needed. We would be delighted to welcome you back to Courtyard Barn, if it was warmer your Mum could visit Humphrey more often without getting cold.
Thank you again for your review and for being such lovely guests. Hopefully see you again one day. Chris & Tanya
Great place to relax and unwind
The cottage is in a very quiet location backing onto fields with its own private garden.
Everything inside was immaculately clean and tidy, no sticky glasses or cutlery! The hosts were very friendly and helpful.
We had great weather and the barn really did look as good as it does in the photos.
Handy for the stunning Stourhead National Trust property.
Overall it was a great place to spend a relaxing weekend.
Thank you Andy for your very kind review of Courtyard Barn. I am so pleased you liked the barn and had an enjoyable and relaxing weekend. It was a pleasure to share Lois Farm with you and thank you for being such lovely guests. It would be a pleasure to welcome you all back if you needed another weekend away to relax. I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer.
Very Best Wishes
Tanya and Chris
