Beautifully refurbished barn accommodation sleeping 4
The Hayloft is a converted farm building with comfortable, 2 bed accommodation on a gated property. The heart of Castle Cary is 2 minutes walk while the garden in which the Hayloft is situated backs onto fields. The best of town and country at once! We have just completed a full redecoration, including new bathroom. We're really proud of it. Come and see for yourselves!
We'll generally be on hand to help with anything you need otherwise you will be left in peace to enjoy your stay.
Castle Cary is one of Somerset's jewels. The buildings are mainly beautiful honey-coloured Hadspen stone. The market town itself has a thriving heart of shops, pubs and restaurants. We feel privileged to live here.
The whole house is yours for the duration of your stay. We leave the key in the door for you so you can arrive when you like after 3pm.
The Hayloft dates back to the early 1800s when it was a farm-building. It is comfortably equipped, cosy and warm. Tucked away from the street it's a haven of calm yet only 2 minutes walk from the centre of town for any shopping needs. You're very welcome to use the top garden where there is a table and chairs for you to sit.
Castle Cary is really well connected. The rail station is 15-20 minutes walk with fast trains to London Paddington, Exeter and beyond, Bath, Bristol and Weymouth. If you're coming by car the A303 is less than 10 minutes drive in either direction. There is off road parking on site for two cars. Two shops, the Coop and Mccolls, are open till 10pm each night with a good stock of the essentials. There are then two independent wine shops, a great delicatessen, and a super greengrocer so you can buy everything you need a short walk away.
We supply the kitchen with basics of salt, pepper, sugar, tea, coffee and cooking oil. In addition, subject to availability we put in a pint of organic milk from the local Bruton Dairy, a bottle of cider and of apple juice (our own while stocks last!), eggs from our chickens (when they are laying), and butter from local farms. If you would like us to organise a simple, high quality home-cooked meal like Spaghetti Bolognese or Carbonara, Chilli con Carne, Lasagne, Sausage, chips and beans for you to finish cooking on your arrival please let us know. We can also supply other local food and drink on request including from our garden depending on the season.
We don't leave a printed "Welcome pack" in the property as it is easier to keep all information up to date digitally. There is decent phone reception and wifi in the house to access this information.
