“Fantastic week in a lovely location.”
Reviewed 27 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Just returned from a weeks stay in this lovely property. The barn is exceptionally clean and comfortable, with everything you could possibly want from a self catering rental.
A great deal of thought and attention to detail is evident throughout. Tastefully decorated and very well equipped, with everything you could possibly require, including the child friendly garden to rear of the property, a lovely suntrap ! Local amenities are only a short drive away including several highly recommended pubs and restaurants. You will not be disappointed should you choose to stay at Oak Barn.

“Outstanding holiday home with everything you need.”
Reviewed 5 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just returned from Oak Barn, it was indisputably one of the best properties we have stayed in with our family (2 adults, 4 children). From the gratefully received welcome basket to the supply of essential cooking ingredients, every detail had been accounted for. We found the property spotlessly clean and warm with a good supply of wood for the fire. The bedrooms were all spacious and beds very comfortable. Our children were very impressed with the smart TV, DVD's, games and outdoor games available which they used despite the arrival of storm Katie! The kitchen was well stocked with every utensil possible and thoughtful provisions such as plastic cutlery and beakers for smaller children made this place a home from home. We would not hesitate to stay here again should we return to this area. Many thanks to Evelyn and Iain for going that extra mile to make it a special place to stay.

“Lovely, comfortable barn in quiet rural location.”
Reviewed 18 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Most enjoyable few days stay over New Year with friends. The barn has been beautifully fitted out and furnished with every convenience. Lovely bedrooms and bath / shower rooms. Superb large sitting room with comfortable settees and log - burning stove and dining area. Large well - equipped kitchen with separate utility / boot room and good - sized garden area to the rear.
The owners have made the property ideal for humans and dogs (both of whom felt quite at home) ! Very nice touches such as providing a supply of logs for the fire .
The barn is a only a few miles from the shops and amenities in Chard and within an easy drive of the lovely Dorset coast and the beach at Charmouth.
We will return and thoroughly recommend it.

“Somerset Idyllic Retreat”
Reviewed 8 January 2016 for a stay in October 2015

Oak Barn is a truly beautiful place to stay. It is situated in a bucolic idyll but, at the same time, is near to all the local attractions. It has been lovingly restored and decorated throughout to the highest standard and has everything you could possibly want to make your stay as comfortable as possible. It is suitable for families and dogs are welcome too. The only drawback about staying here is that you won't want to leave!

The owners thoughtfully provide a list of walks, restaurants, attractions and local amenities which came in very handy. We thoroughly recommend staying at Oak Barn.
