About the property

Great for Walking & Bird Watcher Groups set in Tranquil Nature Reserve

This Barn is a contemporary barn conversion that accommodates 12 - 14 people in supreme comfort arranged over one level. The glass front to the property matches the light interior and makes the most of the sun that streams into the living space from its south facing aspect.

You enter into a small lobby, off which there is a loo, utility room and access to Bedroom 6 (which has an en-suite). There is a huge kitchen/dining room which has a wow factor and perfect for socialising, cooking with the dining table comfortably seating 12.

The sitting room has a lovely log burning stove, perfect for those cold nights and a TV.

Double doors lead to the barn's further bedrooms and bathrooms which include 3 x doubles, 2 x bedrooms which can be configured into twins. 3 of these bedrooms are en-suite and a family bathroom serves the other 2 bedrooms.

The property is in a rural location, perfect for walking and a relaxing weekend away. There is a pub a few miles away which most guests enjoy walking to for a well deserved refuel. You are also close to the village of Bampton (famous for Downtown Abbey) where you will find local amenities.

“The barn was perfect for a stay for our party of 10. Great amenities, so much space and such a beautiful building. The kitchen was well-equipped and we had plenty of everything we needed. StayCotswold were great with communication and the whole thing was seamless! Would love to come again!” Lee, March 2018

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!
