In a small community of scattered houses and cottages, Tibbs Barn has been recently refurbished by its owners to an extremely high standard. It is almost equidistant between Taunton to the west and the A303 to the east and has the best of both worlds in its location, with the Somerset Levels ahead and the scarp of Ham Hill behind, both of which offer interesting walks and a wide variety of wildlife. The area is especially appealing to birdwatchers with the Somerset Wildlife Trust`s renowned habitat, Westhay Moor, only seven miles away. Now a National Nature Reserve, it is one of the top bird-watching locations in Britain. Further afield but still within easy reach are many places of interest – Glastonbury with its Abbey and Tor, Street (Clarks` Village is well-worth a visit), Cheddar Gorge and Caves, Wells with its particularly fine Cathedral Close, and Muchelney Abbey are all relatively nearby, whilst Sherborne and (in the other direction) Taunton and the Blackdown Hills are a pleasant day`s outing.

The renovation of Tibbs Barn not only provides very comfortable accommodation for four people with a wealth of original features (the building dates from the early 1700s) but incorporates some very clever and unusual features: the bathroom lighting in particular is state-of-the-art, and the whole of one side of the sitting room is virtually a glass `wall` which folds back making the patio feel like an extension of the room. At the end of a long day`s exploring, Tibbs Barn is a place to savour and relax in – a thoroughly enjoyable holiday experience.

What our guests say

First Class Property

Needed to be in the area for a few days and needed to take our two small dogs. Normally accommodation that accepts dogs is not of a good standard (in our opinion). Because this is actually someone's home who lives elsewhere most of the time, it has been furnished to the highest standard. One reason for choosing this was the log burner but it was so warm in the house it was not needed even in November. Massive 50" TV, lovely bed, fantastic kitchen. A real must if you are looking for quality in the quiet countryside. One tip is that we arrived near dusk and got a bit lost at one point so if you are visiting in winter time make sure you arrived before it gets dark.
