Old Post Office Barn in Somerset, a cottage in Somerset (incl Bath and Bristol): Old Post Office Barn exterior

A beautiful old stone building - a comfortable and clean 'home from home'

Detached 18th Century converted two storey stone built barn providing a perfect 'home from home' in the depth of the Somerset countryside in the quiet village of Galhampton near the unspoilt market town of Castle Cary - a town ‘lost in time’ having thankfully been overlooked by the less desirable aspects of progress!

Galhampton is a quiet, rural and very friendly village - indeed one guest whilst out walking was asked if she wanted to bake some cakes for the coffee morning! It is ideally situated for you to enjoy the area whether you want shopping, attractions, walking, quiet village pub meals or a combination of them all. It is ideal for Glastonbury, Wells, Stourhead, Sherbourne, Bath & West Showground, Wincanton racecourse, and the Camelot countryside with good local walking.

There is an excellent and welcoming village pub with good food. In all this is a truly relaxing yet well located and rural place to spend your holiday.

The Barn has a large and well appointed kitchen diner, a large sitting room, two large en suite double bedrooms (one with twin beds) - the double room could accommodate a travel cot (available) if you have an infant. There is a garden with a gloriously sunny patio with a gas BBQ and a cast iron wood fire.

There is the paddocks for bigger games like football or rounders (horse permitting) etc. We provide on site parking for 1 car (2nd car subject to prior agreement). There is a welcome basket of local food. The two en suite bathrooms each contain a lavatory, shower and basin.

A recent guest commented that even the nice pictures on the web sites don't do the Barn justice, "it's far bigger and much nicer in real life".

We have free ranging children, chickens, horses and other animals that the children love to see. Unfortunately, although we have 2 x docile black Labradors, we can we can no longer allow guest dogs.

There is a TV with Freeview in the Kitchen, sitting room and master bedroom. We have free wi-fi available but due to the distance from the exchange we can't always guarantee it is working - but that's half the fun of living in the country!

On our website www.oldpostofficebarn.co.uk you can read the fantastic reviews and feedback our guests have left - it is clear why we have lots of families or 'rendez-vous friends' returning. You can also see more details and pictures of the barn and details of the surrounding area and lots of things to do and see.

You can also use Googlemap and postcode BA22 7AP to explore the village.
