    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.

    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.

    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
