The Old Barn
The Old Barn is a beautiful and historic holiday let located in Somerset, England. We offer cosy self-catering holiday accommodation for up to five people all year round.
The Barn is a great base for those who want to explore the glorious Westcountry, and is within easy reach of the Mendip and Quantock Hills, Wells, Bath, Bristol and Glastonbury.
The Barn, on Church Street, Croscombe has had a long and varied history. It is thought it began life as the brew house for the church and its hospital (now the Bull Terrier Pub at the end of the road) in the Middle Ages. More recently it was used as a hay barn and as a builder's store.
The barn was listed in 1985 by English Heritage, an acknowledgement of the barn's historical significance.
The barn lay unused, unloved and derelict for many years. When we purchased it in 2000 - having lived next door since the early 1970s - the roof was leaking and the interior was jammed with building materials and rubble. We have spent the last ten years converting the barn into comfortable holiday accommodation.
