About the property

2 beds, bathroom, shower room, open plan living area, wifi, large outdoor space

*** Chair bed now available in the living area to accommodate an extra person.***

The Bailiff’s Cottage is a recently converted Cotswold stone barn just a 5-minute walk from the centre of Tetbury yet on the fringes of stunning Cotswold countryside - picturesque walks are literally on the doorstep. The bright and airy open-plan cottage is beautifully appointed throughout. The cottage sleeps 4 adults/children plus one infant, with all accommodation being on the ground floor. There is a smart tv with DVD player and free wifi. Underfloor heating keeps the cottage warm and cosy in winter whilst in summer the thick stone walls keep it cool and fresh. Outside there is a patio and generous parking and views over the owners paddock, which you are welcome to enjoy during your stay.


The cottage has two bedrooms, bathroom, shower room, and a large open plan dining, kitchen and lounge area. The larger bedroom has two single beds and is next to the shower room. There is room for a cot in this room. The smaller room has a bunk bed and en-suite with bath.


There is a Cotswold stone patio with table, 4 chairs to the rear of the cottage. The patio overlooks the owners' grass paddock which you are welcome to enjoy. From here you may spot deer or foxes and hear the resident owls. A seasonal stream runs along one side of the property and to the other side is a generous parking area just for the cottage. Guests are welcome to bring up to two vehicles.


The cottage is located down a small and quiet lane a few minutes’ walk from Tetbury town centre yet with open fields only meters away. The lane is access only so vehicles are restricted. (There is a water treatment works at the very end of the lane which is accessed by the local water company. You may see occasional vehicles during your stay but otherwise you should not be affected).


A seasonal tributary of the Tetbury Avon borders one side of the property. It normally flows in spring, autumn and winter but in heavy rain can flow in summer also. Throughout the year there is a drop from wall in front of the cottage into the stream bed. There is also an internal staircase to the owners' storage area. For these reasons, we would ask that children are supervised at all times.

Young guests

We can provide a high chair and cot should you need it.


The property is strictly non-smoking.

Arrival and Departure

You are welcome to arrive from 1600 and ask that you depart by 1000. We offer a minimum 4-night stay and a maximum 7-night stay.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a really relaxing and comfortable week in this lovely property. The cottage is ideally located just a few minutes walk from Tetbury. The village has a good convenience store, some interesting shops, pubs and more besides - the Police Museum is worth visit too.

The owners could not have been more accommodating and helpful - there was milk, and biscuits awaiting our arrival as well a chilled bottle of wine (which was most appreciated!).

We'd definitely come back and we have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to others.

Modern renovation of a beautiful old barn.

  • 5 of 5

A relaxing green view when sitting outside with a fantastic space for the children to play in. The house was spotless and Alyssa was kind enough to leave a welcome gift. Thank you Alyssa for being so helpful during all parts of the process!

Perfect property - wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We booked last minute when our previous accommodation that was booked via AirBnB was cancelled with no warning. Alyssa couldn't have been more helpful prior to arrival... we arrived to find a loaf of bread, butter, milk, tea etc. had been left for us and the property was beautiful! Ideally located walking distance from local Tetbury pubs and restaurants as well as just 15 mins from Badminton Estate... So perfect that I would like to book again for next year!!

A hidden gem

  • 4 of 5

The barn is a clever conversion giving a spacious and well equipped base for a trip to the Cotswolds, we enjoyed the terrace and the fact that it felt remote but was just a few minutes walk from the centre of town.

It was clean and very comfortable and had everything we needed. We didn't try the TV but a radio would have been a bonus. Our only niggle? - the light over the bunk beds, but that would not stop us coming here again its a lovely cottage. Alyssa responded promptly to our emails and should be proud of what she has achieved here.

Charming hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Bailiffs barn is one of those places where opon arrival you just know it has that certain something , it can only be described as awesome .

It is situated in its own private driveway leading to a lush green paddock, but with only a 5 minute walk into the village which offers everything you would need during your stay .

The Royal Oak was great for the fine craft beers and on the weekend the the Tex Mex cantina .

Would definitely return .

Thankyou for our wonderful stay and would return again , hopefully sometime in the near future.
