    We had a lovely week at Orchard Barn. The location was just what we were looking for - quiet and very rural but with shops a short car ride away. Our dog loved the large enclosed garden and we found the local lanes and footpaths excellent for walking. The cottage itself was very well appointed with lovely furnishings (particularly the bed and the curtains) and we had all of the kitchen equipment that we could have wanted. As other reviewers have said the "doors" from the living room and bedroom to the garden are actually windows. They weren't a problem for us but might be more difficult for anyone with mobility issues or who needs a wider gap to fit through. That said, you can reach the garden by exiting via the front door and walking around the side of the building so the "doors" aren't the only option. We found the owners to be very welcoming and helpful. Not only were tea, coffee and milk provided but also fresh flowers and cake, which we really appreciated. All in all we would thoroughly recommend Orchard Barn for a holiday in this beautiful part of Somerset.

    I would strongly recommend Orchard Barn, especially if you have dogs. The garden was so big my two boxers loved it! The location was good and there are a few dog friendly beaches within a short drive. It was very comfortable and the owners made us feel very welcome.

    We felt that the cottage was very tired, it needs up dating. The equipment was poor. There was no instructions for the appliances and although the owners said to let them know if we had any problems we did not want to spend the holiday keeping having to complain.

    A well equipped and spacious cottage with a great enclosed garden for dogs and children, also a paddock to exercise dog (shared with horses). Well located in quiet village between Taunton and Bridgewater. We did not like the foam mattress on the bed and found we were clinging on the edge of the bed so we didn't roll into the middle.

    Ideal location for us, visiting family in Taunton. Only disadvantage was lack of privacy for the single bedroom with large ceiling to floor window directly onto the car park area.

    Well equipped and comfortable cottage in a peaceful country location. Ideal for couples with dogs, the garden is completely enclosed and the paddock is ideal to exercise your pets. Local amenities are few, but there are a good selection of pubs (The Monkton and the Merry Monk can be recommended) and Takeaways can be found in North Petherton. The owners live locally and are very helpful (they fixed the faulty wi-fi within an hour of being told about it) I have no hesitation in recommending this property.

    Beautiful rural property with a large enclosed garden. Ideal retreat if you have dogs. The owner was very thoughtful and welcoming - fresh flowers in the sitting room were a lovely touch. The cottage had everything that we needed for a comfortable base close to all the attractions of Somerset.

    ideal location and garden for us , particularly with 3 dogs in mind. Perhaps an overhaul of the cottage inside is due as inevitably some wear and tear is evident. We would happily return however.

    We have stayed at Orchard Barn many a times over the past 10 years, the dogs love the secure large garden and it is a perfect base to explore Somerset

    When we arrived we were so disappointed to find another property opposite our front door since since we hoped for some privacy considering the situation. Unusual to have milk left but no tea bags or coffee and the kitchen really needs updating. At least we had a private rear garden and the pleasure of feeding two lovely friendly horses with carrots which they enjoyed.
