Shortwood Barn

A fantastic large modern luxurious property ideal for a large family, wonderful facilities, everything anyone would want to make there stay special, even down to providing tea, coffee & milk etc. Set in a lovely remote quiet setting but close enough to towns and many attractions that caters for all different types of interests. A well designed building which is a credit to Justin & Sarah, there have thought of everything which made our stay a wonderful experience for my whole family. Even down to Sarah and Justin providing a lovely cake and sparkling wine to celebrate my wife 60th Birthday. We would highly recommend this property to everyone, it caters for everyone needs, space, luxury, facilities, comfort, lovely views, quietness, the list is endless. We would return again as it has everything a large family would require to have a lovely break/holiday. A five star home.*****

WOW What a house this is

WOW What a house this is, the pictures just don’t do it justice and even they are amazing! The decor and lay out is just perfect we had everything we needed and more! 8 extremely comfortable beds. The double bedrooms were both very roomy with en-suite! The view and balcony were amazing in the main double room A massive walk in wardrobe with so much storage. Hairdryer were provide and also any cleaning products such as dish washer tablets and washing machine pods! We arrived to a beautiful and tasty cake and bottle of bubbly which went down well! We came as a hen do and we all had an amazing time! The huge kitchen was amazing for breakfast and dinners a large dinning table and spacious kitchen meant we could all sit and chat whilst preparing and eating! The lounge was just as good able to play games chat and listen to music. The added fun of having a football table! This house is definitely value for money! In the middle of no where but still close enough to bath etc (via car) Thank you so much for making our stay so enjoyable and relaxing

What a wonderful place to stay!

What a wonderful place to stay! Shortwood Barn was perfect for our family of seven - very comfortable, well equipped and in a lovely quiet location. Within easy reach of Bath, Bristol and some superb countryside this is a great house with a contemporary feel. Justin and Sarah have thought of everything and were very accommodating - thanks to them both. We would love to revisit!

Amazing property in a great location and perfect hosts

Stayed at Shortwood Barn for a 2 night break (wished I'd booked for longer though) for a family celebration. All in our party thought the property was amazing and none of us wanted to leave. We all remarked on how we thought Justin and Sarah were the perfect hosts. The property is equipped with high quality modern furnishings, great layout and all the home comforts you need in a rental property. No expense has been spared with making this an extremely comfortable home. The hospitality from Justin and Sarah could not have been better. They were both welcoming, friendly and helpful but not in any way overbearing, respecting our privacy during our stay. It is obvious that they both have put a lot of thought into making Shortwood Barn a top class property. We were also welcomed with a bottle of Prosecco, homemade Victoria sponge cake and a pint of milk in the fridge. The views of the surrounding countryside from the property, and in particular the upstairs balcony, were lovely to wake up to. It was very beneficial to have 3 bathrooms (and a downstairs toilet) to accommodate a large group and the walk-in wardrobe in the master bedroom was an added bonus. The Litton public house (10 mins walk from the property), with its open fire and cosy feel is a great place to visit for drinks and food. Wells is a pretty town and has its own cathedral and Bishop's Palace and not too far to drive to. As a regular to holiday rentals I can honestly say this is one of the best properties I have stayed in and would definitely like to return in the not too distant future

A wonderful long weekend at Shortwood Barn

A wonderful long weekend at Shortwood Barn for a much needed family get together. My daughter and grandson from Derbyshire and daughter and 2 grandchildren from Plymouth had a lovely chilled weekend. The barn is spacious and clean with everything you could need. Very clean bedding and soft towels. Lots of space for the children to play. A thoughtful and welcome touch of a yummy cake and prosecco. I couldn't fault our stay and will definitely book again.

Everything you hope and want from an air bnb . A stunning converted barn in a beautiful part of the countryside , large enough to spend a weekend with friends/family. And only a short distance from the pub! All made very easy by the hosts who are hospitable , reactive and communicative

Fabulous property, beautiful surroundings and lovely host!

We stayed here for a week and had lovely time. The house is stunning but very comfortable too and Justin was so friendly and welcoming with great tips on where to go and local amenities. The house is in a rural area, very quiet and set amidst beautiful countryside which is accessible from the house - we had several lovely long walks around the local countryside and the nearby lakes / reservoir; a particular highlight was meeting a very friendly cat and chicken chilling on the path by the lake who both strolled along with us for a while! The local pub was walking distance away too and was very nice and there's lots else to do in the local area. We could also imagine coming here in the Autumn and Winter, going for walks, cooking feasts in the lovely kitchen and snuggling down on the huge comfy sofa in front of the wood burner - we will definitely be coming back! Thanks.

Amazing Stay, dream house, dream location, dream hosts!!

This is an amazing property located in the heart of the countryside. Our hosts Justin and Sarah couldnt have been more helpful. The homemade cake and Prosecco on arrival was a great touch too!! This was the ideal property for us as a family, so spacious with a lovely feel to it. The location is perfect deep in the heart of the countryside but close enough to so many beautiful places to visit like Wells and Bath. We couldnt have asked for anything more from our perfect hosts Justin and Sarah. We are now settled back in sunny Albir Spain, but a part of our hearts will always remain at Shortwood Barn as we all had such an amazing time! Thanks again, Paul, Nicky and family XX
