Our Guest Reviews

"We had the most wonderful time staying at Pitcombe Barn. It's everything you could possibly want from a gorgeous family country home with hotel level amenities - think crisp white sheets, fluffy towels and very comfortable beds. The owners went above and beyond to make sure we had the best possible stay."

"The most amazing spot to host my mum's 60th celebrations. Just an awesome place and totally felt at home there. Thank you."

"Our family enjoyed a fantastic 3 day stay at Pitcombe Barn to celebrate a big birthday.
The location on the top of a hill affords 360* views, the house/barn is tastefully furnished, has lots of quirky style, and is maintained at a very high standard with super bathrooms and lots of hot water.
Simply stunning.
Ideally positioned to visit The Newt; NT Stourhead ; Hauser & Wirth gallery and garden; Pitcombe Rock Falconary; Bruton and Castle Carey"
