Bedroom 6 can be changed into a meeting room complete with table and chairs and plasma TV for presentations. StayCotswold would be pleased to discuss options for business meetings. It is private, tranquil and appropriately equipped.

Snipe Barn was the perfect place to stay for our family celebration.Spacious and well equiped.

  • 4 of 5

Firstly a big thank you for allowing early access for our family who had flown in from Hong Kong that morning...they were very grateful for that. We were very happy with the accommodation, all very clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. Our BBQ party with a few extra family and friends went very well, and we didn't feel that we were disturbing other holiday makers as the courtyard is very private, and the paddock was a bonus.There was also plenty of overflow parking too. All in all...wonderful property in an amazing location...thank you very much.

A great remote location for a business meeting

  • 5 of 5

I used Snipe Barn for a business meeting a great location for feeling away from it all, and nicely relaxed to get a creative working environment. The rooms were to a high standard of furnishings and cleanliness and Stay Cotswold were very helpful in meeting our needs.

Peaceful, very pretty location, stunning property

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group celebrating a family birthday. Snipe Barn was ideal for all of us, grandparents and young grandchildren alike and there was plenty of space. The property was immaculately clean and StayCotswold were fantastic with organising things to make it all as stress-free as possible. Thank you!
