The Barn, as its name suggests, is a converted detached two storey stone barn sitting within a farm setting. It has been recently refurbished to provide luxury living for those wishing to escape to the countryside for some peace and tranquillity. Situated at the end of a quiet country lane, with private parking, the Barn is a perfect holiday retreat with open countryside on the doorstep and stunning far reaching views to admire. Guests will enjoy the light and airy open plan setting, complemented by characterful beams.

The farm sits within 40 acres, made up of fields, woodland, lakes and ponds all of which we welcome you to explore. Vobster Quay is adjacent to the farm. The Vobster Inn is within walking distance of the property. Other great family gastro style pubs include The Talbot at Mells, The Grange at Whatley and the Archangel in Frome town centre all of which have lovely outside dining areas.

This place is exactly what you need for a relaxing long weekend in a nice city. The location of the Barn was initially advertised on being on the outskirts of the City of Bath but when putting the address in my SatNav, took me 10 miles south to a place called Vobster Farm. This was misleading but not an issue for us as we took the Park & Ride into Bath each day - very cheap and quick. The Barn is located in a very pretty, scenic and peaceful place, right in the heard of real countryside. It was more than what we wished for, of a very high specification and it was spotless. A lot of memories made and we will be recommending this place to our friends.
