Thank you for making this place such a wonderful place to stay. I smiled as soon as I walked through the door.

Such a lovely, homely place to stay for our run of a show at the Minack. Everything you could need. Relaxing and peaceful. Pity about the poor wifi!

Trustees' response: Thank you for your appreciative comments. We are pleased to say that the WiFi has now been upgraded to 'full fibre' and it seems much better if not faster!

Truly a Haven. Place to watch the tide and mist roll in out. So homely with that touch of luxury. Thank you.

Such a comfortable and well equipped place to rest and regroup. Amazing location; views, walks, fun in the sea. Thank you so much.

The "Tractor Shed"

The "Tractor Shed" is a comfortable property! Its name serves as a reminder that the Convent at Posbury was also a working farm run by the Sisters of the Franciscan Servants of Jesus and Mary (FSJM). The "Tractor Shed" was converted as a residence for Sister Giovanna, the last surviving member of FSJM, who used to drive the tractor at Posbury!

The Tractor Shed offers comfortable accommodation for guests wishing to have a quiet/reading day in tranquil surroundings overlooking the fields of Posbury. The property has underfloor heating throughout served by an air source heat pump. There are solar panels and an electric vehicle charging point. There is sufficient space for a group or team meeting up to a maximum of 10 people. There is limited parking so guests are asked to share transport where possible. There is maximum space for two cars in front of the Tractor Shed and two on the grass verge opposite, so car sharing is encouraged wherever possible. Guests wishing to stay overnight may do so up to a maximum of two people sharing. Guests, both resident and non-resident, are asked to respect the presence of other properties and people on the Posbury Estate especially in relation to parking and levels of noise.

The property is let on a self-catering basis. Towels and tea towels are provided, and sheets are supplied for resident guests. Our housekeeping service prepares the Tractor Shed for the arrival of guests. Before departure it is expected that guests will wash and dry dishes, pots and pans and put them away leaving the property clean and tidy.
