Goldhorn | Luxury Self-Catering Country House | Ilminster, Somerset

Guest Feedback and Testimonials

Feedback is of utmost importance to us here at Unique Home Stays, and we love to hear back from our guests to ensure that we have not only fulfilled, but exceeded their expectations every step of the way. But don't just take our word for it, read what previous guests have said about Goldhorn below:

The setting is spectacular, secluded without being isolated, the garden is pretty and well maintained. The house felt warm and it is fabulous that there are so many books. We did not use wood burner as the weather was so fantastic but it would have been cosy on a winterīs evening. We could walk to Barrington Court within moments and our grandson loved riding his bike on the traffic free road. We were lucky enough to see glorious sunsets to the front of the property and the huge, blood red harvest moon to the rear. This was the first time we have stayed in Somerset and we were most impressed with the area.

What a wonderful weekend, our second visit to Goldhorn! We have had glorious autumnal weather, and the house and ambience were just perfect for the most relaxing stay.

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful home. Relaxing with family enjoying the tranquil Somerset countryside. With the added enjoyment of celebrating a 21st birthday here, this house has created some fabulous and amazing memories!

What a truly wonderful house to turn 40 in! We have had the best time! Goldhorn feels like home, the lovely touches such as the fresh flowers and delicious hamper made us all feel so welcome. The house is warm, cosy and luxurious with such beautiful things and furnishings which add to the perfect ambiance. We all felt so at home and it will be hard to leave. This week will always hold such a special place in my heart where we created lovely memories.

What a fabulous house in fabulous environs. All the previous superlatives apply, we had a wonderfully relaxed week. Amazing walks on our doorstep and lots of places to visit - Longleat and Cheddar Gorge were both great days out! We had such a lovely time enjoying the house too, we´re leaving feeling very relaxed and rejuvenated.

We barely left the house and grounds as we were enjoying them so much! what a wonderful location and such a marvellous home. We would love to return!

The house was fantastic, it was so comfortable, homely yet so special and had everything we needed. We absolutely loved the location and felt incredibly privileged to have stayed there. To have all that gorgeous land on the doorstep was a dream. We were celebrating a 70th birthday and the birthday boy was blown away with the whole weekend. We couldn’t have had a better break. We were so sad to leave! We have decided to make this property our go to for further family gatherings and would love to return for a week next year.

Super weekend celebrating a 40th & a 30th Birthday. The house is beautiful, very homely and well-equipped. Daffodils were at their best and the sun shone. Excellent walks from the door to Shepton Beauchamp and Stocklinch. Excellent dinner at The Barrington Boar. A weekend of wonderful memories, long meals and good conversation. Thank you.

This really is a special place. The link to Barrington House is wonderful, with the beautiful secret gardens to explore. The people running the house are incredibly helpful - the housekeeper is warm and friendly and thorough and the hamper we received on arrival was stunning and much appreciated after the trip. The beds were super comfortable, the linen was glorious and the fact that there were so many bathrooms was really great. We really think this is an outstanding property and hope to return.

What a lovely home, just beautifully presented. Clearly a much loved family home that we were glad to borrow for a weekend. We made the most of the stunning setting at Barrington Court and loved coming back to the log fire after a walk. We have much admired your house from our visits to Barrington and were delighted to be able to stay. Many thanks.

Celebrating thanksgiving and good friends in this cosy home couldnīt have been better. We loved the house and appreciate that you have opened in up so that we can experience it. Cosy fires, dinners at the big table, walks through the muddy countryside - enjoyed 1,000,000%!

A family celebration for a birthday. Tremendously enjoyable week here. We just loved the house and garden. And how we will miss the early morning pushchair circuit round the estate. Best equipped kitchen we have ever had, including our own.

It could not have been more awesome, amazing. So many things here to enjoy by three generations. Thank you.

Staying at Goldhorn and booking through yourselves- both five star. We cannot find anything to criticise. How unusual is that?

What a wonderful home you have! We had a wonderful time here celebrating with our family. With temperatures of 30 degrees we did not spend much time in the house but the website certainly captured the beautiful rooms and did them justice. The gardens are amazing. Thank you.

Fantastic short break, incredibly good weather for April. What a lovely house and garden, felt very relaxed.Enjoyed local walks and would definitely come back.

What a memorable 60th birthday celebration! Magnificent house and countryside, glorious walks and even some sunshine. A truly fantastic house, thank you.

We had the most spectacular and magical time at Goldhorn, it was everything we dreamed of and more. Unique Home Stays has been amazing and the owners flexibility in assisting us is second to none. We will be back to celebrate our anniversary! Thank you so much.

Goldhorn is a beautiful home in a great location, it was very spacious and with plenty of privacy - which was just what we wanted. We loved everything about the property and hope to return in the near future.

We have had a wonderful few days in this beautiful home. Absolutely perfect for a weekend getaway. Love the house, love the surroundings.

We fell completely in love with Goldhorn Manor. The hamper was amazing (and very appreciated), and the fact that the house came with the basics like eggs and butter, plus a special treat in the fridge was wonderful.

This property demonstrates that it is possible to offer clients high standards of cleanliness throughout the property while allowing pets too. We were really impressed and Goldhorn Manor was very beautiful.

We loved Goldhorn Manor and Unique Home Stays, you have done an excellent job with the property.
