Amazing find
Certainly recommend this detached, clean, comfortable, well equipped, relaxing and spacious cottage. Milk and delicious home made chocolate cake on arrival. Fresh home grown cut flowers in the conservatory. Lovely views from the sunny conservatory and garden, with views over the farm, including cows, hens, peacocks and ducks on the pond with fields beyond. An occasional steam train can be seen in the distance puffing along. Nice, helpful owners live in the farmhouse near the cottage IF needed but are certainly NOT intrusive

Family Visit
Choose The Granary as it was near to Son's in Upton Noble. Easy to get to from road and a warm welcome given. The Bungalow next to farmhouse had a entrance porch handy for boots and shoes. We parked right upto door which was handy as my partner had mobility problem. A lovely warm feeling when we walked into the kitchen come lounge. It's like home from home with everything you needed. Was greeted with milk and chocolate cake left for us. You can also purchase eggs from them. The bathroom was large with shower over bath and very powerful shower! The lovely bedroom suite all wood and plenty of space. Conservatory/second bedroom and dinning room looked out onto well stocked kitchen garden, greenhouse, chickens and duck pond. The best view was the cows. I watched them every morning coming out of feeding sheds to go to be milked. Very quite with odd moo. Shops only down the road at Shepton Mallet. Would recommend The Granary to all my friends and family to stay.

Everything we Needed
We chose ?The Granary? for its location; it is close to Shepton Mallet and shops, but well away from the noise of a main road. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there. The cottage is very comfortable and there was everything there that we needed. We chose to eat in most nights and found that the kitchen was very well equipped and well planned. The owners left a basic pack for us of milk, sugar and coffee, which was a plus, and an enormous yummy cake. The building is obviously well insulated, as we found that the cottage was far too warm with the heating on and turned it off after our first night there. We also liked watching the farm animals and discovering about them, and the work involved in looking after them. I found the chickens particularly amusing. The cottage is very well situated for discovering the tourist sites of Somerset and Devon. We would certainly return again.

Such a warm welcome. Beautiful, well cared for cottage in spotless condition. We immediately felt at home. Very sad to leave, but already planning to return. Could not find fault with anything. Attention to detail was present in each room of the cottage. Thank you for giving us such a relaxing, happy holiday.

Very friendly owner, she couldn't do enough for us. The area to sit outside was wonderful. Everything was perfect!
