Everything about this barn conversion was first class. The owners lived near and were very helpful and pleasant.

Absolutely perfect! A stunning location and a wonderful stay in a beautiful place!
Mrs Taylor

Dairy Barn is in a perfect location and the setting was lovely and peaceful, yet not difficult to get to other places. The best accommodation we have stayed in during the last 3 years.
Mr Varey

A very well presented and well equipped property with helpful owners. An excellent holiday base, we had lovely days out and it was always a pleasure to return back to Dairy Barn.
Mrs Cadman

Liked the way we were welcomed with the littlest touches of a home from home. A lovely place from which to explore the surrounding area. Would definitely revisit in the future.
Mrs Andrews
March 2015
This was a holiday planned late and close to home to be quiet and relaxing. The property allowed just that, but had some beautiful countryside, villages and country towns close by. Lots of lovely walks for our Jack Russell and dog friendly pubs to hand for meals. There is also much more in nearby Dorset and Somerset for the visitors to this property to explore.
Mr Obern

A great cottage in a brilliant location to explore the surrounding area.
Mrs Chase

The excellent presentation of the cottage, definitely worth 5 Stars. The area was excellent for touring, the cottage was lovely and warm and certainly worth another visit, perhaps later in the year..

A lovely, cosy barn in a tranquil, rural location. Dairy barn is well equipped and warm. The property is central to many tourist locations such as Salisbury, Bath, Stonehenge, Avebury and Shaftesbury. Stourhead House and Gardens is just a few minutes drive away and Longleat is just a short drive away too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Dairy Barn for a rural holiday retreat.

The barn was very well located to discover the countryside and attractive cities in the neighbourhood. Arriving at the barn after a day of walking and discovering the beautiful landscapes, it felt like coming home.
Mr Blake

Home from home in a well equipped cottage. Very peaceful and relaxing. We would not hesitate in re-booking should we visit the area again.

We have stayed in several Sykes Cottages now and although they have all been excellent, this one surpassed our already high expectations set by Sykes. This cottage is perfectly located for just about everything you would want to see and in a beautiful setting.

Mrs Bland

Property was definitely worth 5 stars, underfloor heating, water softener, good quality fittings. Always warm and cosy on our return at the end of the day.
Mrs Chapman
November 2013
The quality was far better than is expected of holiday cottages. The pictures on the web page do not really do it justice. The area is full of interesting places to visit whatever type of days out you want. Perfect.
Mr Sandler
July 2013
Loved everything from the moment we arrived. Whether inside or out, we weren't disappointed. The place is just lovely and so are the owners. The surrounding areas were stunning and wonderfully quiet. If you want a very private getaway then the Dairy Barn is perfect.
Miss Duffy

Ms Purkiss

Our hosts were friendly and helpful offering a very warm welcome. The Dairy Barn had all the home comforts needed. If a tranquil setting is what you want Dairy Barn is the place to holiday. We hope to return soon.
May 2016
This has been beautifully done and is in a lovely position. It's really close to Stourhead and there are lots of great walks nearby. There's also a great pub which you can walk to across a field.
Mrs Page
April 2013
The Dairy was beautifully equipped and finished and extremely comfortable. The area is attractive and interesting although the extremely cold weather was a deterrent to exploring as much as we would have liked.
November 2014
We have just returned home after a most relaxing week away, the Dairy Barn is In a lovely location surrounded by beautiful country side and plenty of places to visit in the surrounding area. We felt at home the minute we walked through the door ! the place is very clean and done to a high standard with every appliance you need , a large dining kitchen , snug lounge so comfy at night to relax in, a large bathroom and a large bedroom with a very comfy bed, plenty of storage place for your clothes . The owners Fiona and David are very nice and helpful about the area and when we arrived they had left milk tea and biscuits for us . The place is always lovely and warm . We would highly recommend the dairy barn for a holiday.
September 2013
The Barn has been converted into a holiday home with no expense spared in order to make it comfortable and good to stay in. Being used to a superking size bed at home it would have been nice to have had one there, but that being said the bed was very comfortable. The owners could not have been more helpful and welcoming but were not intrusive. There is lots to do in the local area, with a number of National Trust properties within easy reach and plenty of small and large towns to visit not too far away. The local small town of Mere has a fish and chip shop, coop and Indian takeaway.

We chose this property because it was central to many of the places we wanted to visit (Bath, Salisbury, Westbury, Avebury, Shaftesbury & Stonehenge). The barn is very well equipped and it was lovely and warm (it has underfloor heating). There is a large, well equipped kitchen, a cosy snug area, an airy bathroom with a large shower and separate bath, along with a double bedroom. Outside there is a private patio/garden area off the kitchen and open plan parking to the front of the property. The barn is set within a small complex of 6 heritage dwellings, but there is ample privacy and the property isn't overlooked. The setting is rural, peaceful and pleasant. The Dairy Barn exceeded our expectations and we'd have no hesitation in booking the property again.
July 2013
Our stay did not disappoint. The Dairy Barn is even better than in the photos. The place looks brand spanking new and is beautifully maintained and incredibly comfortable. The owners are truly lovely and live next door but leave you alone unless you need their help. It's wonderfully quiet and set in the most beautiful surroundings. We took our dog who enjoyed the garden and near-by fields. The only negative comment is that watching the big telly in the living room at night isn't very comfy due to uncomfortable seating. We were pre-warned that we might not get a good signal on our phones and infact we didn't get any signal unless we drove out of the area but there is a landline if you need it . We really look forward to visiting again as we have fallen in love the place.

The owners were very friendly and helpful. This was our second visit to the cottage, so we would not have returned if we didn't think it was a great place to stay.
Mr Varey
June 2016
A very well equipped and laid out holiday cottage. The Dairy Barn feels very homely and is an excellent base for days out. Plenty to do in the area. We particularly liked the enclosed garden. We also thought the kitchen was amazing, allowing you the scope to prepare anything. A very well thought out property.

Mrs Hodges

We have stayed in lots of cottages and this was one of the best.. It was extremely comfortable with a good quality bed and everything we needed. There was also an enclosed paddock where we could let our dog have a run. The owner was very helpful suggesting places for us to go and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the area.

Mrs Gosling

Excellent accommodation, home from home, cosy, clean, comfortable with good furniture and fittings.. Also if you have a dog Dairy Barn is very dog friendly with tiled and wooden floors throughout (plus rugs) and a safe enclosed garden too. Would highly recommend.
Mr Mirams
September 2018
This holiday cottage was absolutely first class in every respect.. It was in a beautiful area which is a dog's paradise for the beutiful walks and varaity. It is a pity it Is so far away from where we live else I could see us spending a short break there frequently.
Mr Teather
September 2018
It was a gorgeous cottage, nice garden for the dog with meadow beyond.. The cottages fantastic beautiful furniture, long inside which the dog loved running up and down with his toys. Every thing there that you needed. Owners were really great, helpful but also kept out of your way. One of the best we've been too and we've stayed in a lot.
Mrs Seabrook-smith
September 2018
The visitor book at the Dairy Barn was full of complimentary comments from previous holidaymakers, many of whom have made repeat visits; and we are not surprised.. The accommodation is superb, the welcome from David and Fiona was very warm
Mrs Short
August 2018
The Cottage was beautiful.. a bit off the beaten track but, suited our needs. Fiona was superb, explaining where everything was and how it worked!! The drawer within a drawer advice came in useful, as it stored all the cutlery. The bed was comfy. The outside back garden was spacious. We have had issues with some of the properties we've stayed in, at least 2 in recent years, have spoilt our Holiday by the uncleanly state they were in. I'm pleased to say the Dairy Barn isn't one of them. Only one thing that I could fault. The seating areas were uncomfortable, not good for the less mobile person with back and leg problems. But overall we enjoyed our stay.
Ms Viner

The barn had everything I could have needed.. Bed was super-comfortable, kitchen had all mod cons & the owners were really friendly & helpful (but not at all intrusive!)
Mr Burrows

Excellent rental property.. Can't think of anything else that you'd want from it. An ideal base from which to explore Wiltshire & Somerset.
Mr Varey
June 2018
We have been to Dairy Barn four years in a row and we love the homely feel it has.. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and the accommodation has been well thought out. There is plenty to see and do in this area of the country but it is lovely to have a comfortable base to return too. I am sure we will be booking again.
Mr Pincombe
June 2018
The accommadation was the best we have ever stopped in, it was clean and tidy with lots of room to move about in.. It was great for the dog too plenty of room in the garden to play in also well positioned for dog walks and places to visit will book again.
Mr Mead

All of the modern home conveniences you could possibly want. Exceptionally friendly and helpful hosts. Ideal location for walking and touring. Very dog friendly. Thank you.
