About Hazel and Jeremy Lewis

Hazel and Jeremy have lived in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside for over 22 years. Both have taken early retirement and thoroughly enjoy offering Rofield Barn to guests and their families.

Rofield Barn was a tumble down barn before Hazel and Jeremy spent much time converting it into what is is today. Their aim was to provide a first class retreat for families and friends who want to get away and enjoy Gloucesterhsire. As both of them are experienced in the hospitality industry and are well travelled they both feel that you will definately enjoy the comforts of Rofield Barn.

Hazel and Jeremy Lewis purchased this barn in 2001

Why Hazel and Jeremy Lewis chose Apperley

Rofield was once a small farm and the barn belonged to the next door farmer. He was happy to sell it to us and, during our children's university days, it became their party hotspot! Now they are off earning a living we decided to transform Rofield Barn to what it is today.

Positioned in a quiet village hamlet and only 200 yards from a pub/restaurant Rofield Barn provides a great location for the perfect family holiday - or that friend's weekend break you have all promised each other.

What makes this barn unique

The peacefulness of Rofield Barn is what our guests very much enjoy. Although the home has comforts of a modern interior allow for total relaxation there is a beautiful countryside all around for walking - or just to look at!

A short distance across the fields we have a wetland park area of over 100 acres where the wildlife is fantastic. Towns and villages are not very far away and there are many things to do for all ages.
