    Converted into a very spacious, light and airy holiday property with a large open plan living area, this former old dairy, adjacent to the owner’s home at Rectory Farm, is surrounded by fields with sheep and rolling countryside. The property is deceptively spacious with a large open plan living space and a private patio with attractive planters. It offers a peaceful and relaxing retreat, yet is situated just off the A37, providing ample opportunities to explore the many attractions within Somerset. The nearest town is Castle Cary, 5 miles, famous for its Round House, an old town lock-up. Somerton, 6 miles, is allegedly an ancient capital of Wessex and Shepton Mallet has a 50ft market cross dating from 1500. Glastonbury, a thriving market town and a major tourist venue, is 10 miles away. Visit Glastonbury Tor, the abbey and its spiritual essence within the town, and the annual Glastonbury Festival which takes place in nearby Pilton. Street is home to a famous shoe industry and is now well known for its designer outlet shopping complex, Clarks Village. Yeovil town has pedestrian precincts, a wide variety of shops and a number of weekly markets. Spend a day in Wells, England’s smallest city, which is not only a fantastic market town but includes the magnificent cathedral and Bishop’s Palace and gardens. Slightly further afield is Sherborne with its castle, and Cheddar, famous not only for its cheese but also the caves and gorge. Other attractions include Haynes Motor Museum, 6 miles, Yeovilton Naval Air Museum, 10 miles, Bath and West Showground, 7 miles, and National Trust houses such as Lytes Cary and Tintinhull, and Montacute, the location for the TV series ’Wolf Hall’. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Brigitte – 5 Jan 2021
    "The property is in a small village so only local amenity is a baker, hence the 8 score, albeit that it did not bother us having to drive for supplies. We loved our stay so much that we already booked another holiday at The Old Cowshed later this year."
    Caroline – 8 Nov 2020
    "What a lovely light spacious modern (Cow Shed) .Spotlessly clean and in a wonderful location if you like walking and just far enough away from the nearest town .The owners were very friendly and informative . There is a bakery just down the road and if you like Sourdough it is the best we’ve eaten ."
    Shirley – 24 Oct 2020
    "Excellent cottage. We wished we could have stayed longer."
    John – 18 Oct 2020

    Kate – 7 Sep 2020
    "A wonderful, relaxing one week's stay at The Old Cow Shed. The accommodation is very spacious and well thought out. It is very well equipped with everything you might need. The furnishings are stylish and comfortable. The entire place was exceptionally clean. The setting is beautiful and the patio area lovely for an evening drink or a meal. Our hosts were very welcoming and on hand, yet left us to it unless we needed them. Highly recommended. Thank you for a great stay."
    Derek – 20 Aug 2020
    "The Old Cowshed contained everything you would need for a comfortable stay. The owners were very friendly and had gone to great trouble to ensure that everything was clean and easy to keep that way. Our daughter and family were staying three miles away and we were pleased that they were welcome to visit us in the courtyard and to use the tennis court. We were close to many interesting places to visit including National Trust properties which had their gardens open."
    Ally – 16 Jul 2020
    "We had a fantastic time at The Old Cowshed. It was comfortable, clean and set in beautiful surroundings. We enjoyed exploring the area and found plenty to do with our young children. Would highly recommend!"
    Joan – 20 Oct 2019
    "This is a very well equipped, warm and comfortable cottage. It is in a rural setting but is well placed for visiting Bath, Wells, Glastonbury and if you are prepared to drive further, Weston-Super-Mare, Wookey Hole and Longleat amongst other popular places in Somerset.The owners were welcoming and helpful .The weather wasn't too good for our stay but, had we not chosen to go out each day, the cottage would have been pleasant enough to stay at home and relax."
    Dorothy – 28 Sep 2019
    "Lovely place to stay. Accommodation was of a high standard. Would recommend highly."
    Brenda – 25 Sep 2019
    "My sister and I stayed in The Old Cowshed in September and had a wonderful week. The accommodation was of a very high standard, the best we have ever been in. Everything was clean and worked, especially the showers which were fantastic. The kitchen was very well equipped with anything you could possibly need. There were lots of mugs, cups, glasses, plates, cutlery etc, not just four place settings which is often the case in holiday lets. We found everything had been well thought out, so it really was a home from home. Duncan and Julia were welcoming and friendly but not intrusive. The location was lovely and quiet and we liked the sheep and the cows in the far field. It was ideal for visiting Cheddar Gorge, the Cathedral and Bishops Palace at Wells, and National Trust properties Tintinhull, Lytes Cary, Montacute and Barrington Court."
    Linda – 15 Sep 2019
    "A real home from home accommodation. Every piece of cooking equipment you could want. Very roomie and plenty big enough for 4 adults. Beautifully clean and well decorated, comfortable beds and pillows, really good hot showers. A very warm welcome by the owner who went through how everything worked, also some lovely goodies. Would highly recommend."
    Paul – 18 Aug 2019
    "Thankyou for an absolutely perfect holiday. The owners were friendly and attentive. The cottage was wonderful. The pictures do not do it justice. It is much bigger than it looks in the photos. The location is really peaceful. A local pub and shop would have been the icing on the cake. The location is also a good base for days out, with some amazing locations within 30mins of the cottage.Thankyou for an amazing holiday"
    Peter – 24 Jun 2019
    "Excellent comfortable accommodation in a convenient location for many attractions. Had a very enjoyable stay."
    Janet – 8 Jun 2019
    "Accommodation is wonderful- peaceful spot overlooking farmland. Ideal if you want somewhere to relax and recharge your batteries. The owners Duncan and Julia were great hosts - we were welcomed on arrival with fresh eggs and wine , they were always available if we needed them but gave us our privacy"
    Peter – 15 May 2019
    "Great cottage lovely people and the location was ideal for what ever you wanted to do"
    Emily – 30 Apr 2019
    "We had a wonderful three nights in The Old Cowshed. Duncan and Julia were fabulous hosts, making us feel very welcome. We especially enjoyed the eggs and biscuits they had left. The cottage is beautifully clean and wonderfully well-equipped. The surrounding grounds are lovely - it was a treat to see the baby lambs! - and there is so much to do in the local area (and lots of information about this to hand in the cottage). We'll definitely be recommending The Old Cowshed to family and friends."
    Heather – 23 Apr 2019
    "We enjoyed a lovely week at The Old Cowshed. Julia & Duncan were very welcoming and friendly and the cottage was fantastic. Our daughter got to bottle feed a baby lamb and collect couldn't buy that experience. Thank you Julia & Duncan."
    "Lovely well equipped and tranquil farm cottage in great Somerset location."
    "The Old Cowshed is one of the best cottages we have stayed in over many, many years. It is spacious, immaculately presented and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the log burner and other excellent festures. The owners are friendly and helpful. The cottage is well placed for visiting this lovely area. Very highly recommended."
    "Really lovely property renovated to a very high standard probably the best wood burner we’ve ever seen in all the cottages we’ve been to quite a remote location but very peaceful. Ideall for walking mid and North Somerset."
    "Everything was just as described. The owners were helpful and went out of their way to make this a great holiday home."
    "Lovely accommodation, thoughtfully designed and furnished, in a nice rural area. Owners are lovely people, on hand should you need anything. We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend there and will be coming again."
