Old Post Office Barn


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 a really nice 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 if you have an infant. There is a garden with a gloriously sunny patio with a gas BBQ and 'fire pit' wood brazier. There is the paddocks for bigger games like football or rounders (horse permitting) - even a set of rugby posts ! 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 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 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 of the surrounding area. You can also use Googlemap and postcode BA22 7AP to explore the village. If you would like to discuss any questions you might have please do not hesitate to contact us (+44) 01963 441305 or (+44) 07779 023985. NOTE: 1. Please note that for the comfort of all of our guests' we have a strict No Smoking Policy in the Barn.

With its lovely beaches beautiful countryside and fascinating history, dating back to the times of the Ancient Britons, Somerset makes a wonderful cottage holiday destination. And the best way to experience the county’s many attractions is from your base in one of our holiday cottages in Somerset. Bath has some of Britain’s most majestic Georgian architecture, as well as the famous Roman Baths (not mention great shopping). Then there’s Wells, England’s smallest city. Wandering around the cathedral close, with its unspoilt medieval lanes is like taking a step back in time. And for a real sense of mystery, there’s Glastonbury (home of the world-famous music festival), supposedly the site of King Arthur’s mythical Avalon. All await you on one of our Somerset cottage holidays. The county has more than its fair share of beach resorts too. The Grand Pier at Weston-Super-Mare is superb, as is the wide beach here, while Minehead and Burnham-on-Sea offer a choice of traditional seaside pleasures. Meanwhile, for nature lovers there’s the wild landscape of Exmoor, and the Mendip and Quantock Hills, both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cheddar Gorge is truly stunning. Great for real Cheddar cheese too!
