There is a footpath directly opposite the farm entrance which leads right up to the top of the hills and across the surrounding countryside which has changed very little from the days when it inspired the romantic poets Coleridge and Wordsworth. Just a few minutes walk will take you into the heart of the village, where you will find the village church, shop with Post Office and also a traditional pub, The Carew Arms.

Customer Reviews

Thanks for a fantastic holiday – an ideal centre for touring N. Somerset – so many unspoilt places. A wonderful cottage that felt homely from the moment we walked in through the door. A great experience – thank you.

Gilmour, Andrew and Catherine. January 2023.

Wow what a gem of a place ! A true home from home. Super comfortable beds and a beautiful charming cottage. The games barn was a great distraction for the kids and we loved the selection of retro board games.

Arrived from The New Forest to a lovely hosts welcome. Lovely week away in the faultless Old Bakery. Home from Home. Set in some stunning scenery. Nice to see some hills – not like flat old Hampshire !! Would love to come back.

Sean Hallett and family. Oct 23

Always a great pleasure to come on what is now our 6th stay. We’ve had some great walks and an amazing meal at The New Inn at Halse. Thank you so much for your welcome pack and all your help as always.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Flora’s Barn and it just gets better each time. It is just the best UK holiday cottage we have been to.
