Visit the Haynes Motor Museum and explore south and central Somerset, as well as the stunning Jurassic Coast.

On the outskirts of South Barrow and set in a peaceful scenic country location between Castle Cary and Yeovil, these two single-storey barn conversions are ideal bases from which to explore south and central Somerset. Duck Egg Cottage (ref 27191) is a mid-terrace barn conversion and Midknowle Barn (ref UKC2481) is end-terraced. Both are well presented, and each has its own hot tub with lovely country views, where you can relax and unwind in. On the doorstep you can visit the famous Haynes Motor Museum with its superb collection of classic cars; Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum with its exciting aircraft carrier deck experience and huge collection of naval planes; and many historic houses such as Montacute House. Slightly further afield are stunning Stourhead House and Gardens. Within easy driving are Glastonbury Tor, the designer outlet of Clarks Village, Wells cathedral city and the West Somerset Steam Railway, all of which offer great days out. Other family days out include Longleat House and Safari Park or exploring the world famous Jurassic Coast. There is also great country walking in the 6 acres of the owner’s smallholding, local pubs to wine and dine in, and golf courses nearby. Beach 25 miles. Shop and pub 2 miles and restaurant 1 mile. These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 8 guests.

    Gorgeous, cosy and warm cottage with beautiful surrounding countryside views. Great for kids too. Hot tub was the best feature! Great value for money and friendly hosts. Complimentary tea, coffee, milk and flap jacks on arrival and the kitchen was fully equipped for self catering. We would definitely go back.
