Why Vivienne and Andy Brister chose Somerton
Our house and this property are set in a wonderful rural location with easy access to the town and the countryside. It is an ideal base location for seeing Somerset.
What makes this Barn unique
The Garden Room is a slightly unusual property in a lovely location. Constructed by a local timber frame craftsman approximately 12 years ago, it is located on our 2 acre property and is separate from our house, which is a timber clad wooden bungalow with a corrugated iron roof. This was built in 1920 to provide a smallholding for soldiers returning from the 1st World War. The idea being to regenerate the agricultural industry after the Great War. Along the lines of the 'Homes for Heroes' scheme. It is almost the last one remaining on South Hill which originally had a number of these, sadly most have now been demolished and replaced with modern homes.

Great place and very welcoming people
Extremely warm welcome from Andy and Vivienne, a unique and characterful retreat. Wonderful gardens and relaxed setting. Lovely interior-stylish and comfortable-we will come and stay again
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unique property.
We just love it...
Viv and Andy are great hosts, warm and welcoming, and their two little furry friends ('cheeky' Franky and beautiful Ruby are gorgeous! Our G Schnauzer 'Boris' bagged himself a 'pen pall' for the weekend. We had such a lovely time in The Garden Room, bright and airy, filled with beautiful antique treasures. A peaceful and relaxing place to spend time and unwind. We only popped down to Somerset for a new vehicle and ended up having such a wonderful weekend. Far exceeded our expectations, thanks again and would highly recommend. Helen, Paul & Boris x
Excellent, unusual retreat.
Enjoyed staying at The Garden Room, near local amenities but felt like a hidden gem! Loved strolling round the owners 2 acre garden with our dog. Lovely owners Andy and Viv, nice dogs too!
