Guestbook comments from the owner

'A lovely property and excellent accommodations'

We had a long stay at the Blackberry Barn and absolutely loved it. Lucy, our dog, enjoyed long walks in the fields and swims in the creek nearby while Mike and I enjoyed the closeness to Nailsworth, Tetbury, Cirencester and Bath for explorations and good food. The barn is done to the highest standard and fitted with all of the extras to make your stay very comfortable. We hope to come back again someday. Mike and Lynda, California

'The hidden gem of the Cotswolds!' Absolutely beautiful, Sarah and matt and the boys are fabulous hosts. The barn was furnished to an exemplary standard. We couldn't have asked for more! Vickie Wyllie

Spacious, homely nest away in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the blackberry barn with our dog, it felt amazing and luxurious, perfect for a romantic weekend away. the shower in itself was amazing but it was also all the little details and the huge super king size bed. Great if you love to have long walks in the country side and a wonderfully warm, spacious and comfortable nest to get back to. Would recommend and expect to be back soon.

We stayed at Blackberry Barn for a second time (and already booked a third stay). We have family close by and this is the perfect place to stay with the dog whilst visiting. There are great walks straight from the door and plenty of places to visit within an hour by car.

The accommodation is spacious and clean with lovely views.

Peaceful hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The barn is in a quiet and peaceful location although you have to negotiate narrow lanes to access it. The view from the barn is delightful and although there is a railway line nearby there is very little noise. It is adjoined to another barn but you have totally separate parking spaces and there was no noise coming through the wall. We had a tea tray on arrival of tea bags, coffee sachets and biscuits, however the milk seemed to have been overlooked but luckily we had taken our own with us. The bedroom is very large with a kingsize bed, settee, wardrobe and dressing table with plenty of drawers for clothes and lots of hangers in the wardrobe. There was also a tv. The bathroom was superb with a large bath and separate wetroom rain shower and hand held shower. The bath towels were a little on the small size. The main part of the barn is the kitchen/dining room/lounge. The kitchen is well equipped with everything necessary for cooking plus a fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. The dining table is a good size and the lounge area has a good size settee plus tv and dvd player. The barn is warm and well lit both naturally and with good lighting although the under counter lights did not appear to work. The folder with local information and appliance user guide was very useful. It is possible to do walks from the barn across the fields. I would definitely recommend this property and would like to return sometime.

Great barn in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely barn in a rural location. Underfloor heating was lovely. The barn itself was well appointed with everything we needed. I was a little worried about the location of the railway line, there was some noise but nothing that put me off; in fact my little boy thought it was great to see the trains going by. There are some good local farm shops and villages in the surrounding area. Well worth a visit. would certainly recommend a stay here.
