Guestbook comments from the owner

The welcome to Bay Tree Farm was so warm and friendly.. especially the chickens that came up to the glass front to have a good look at us!! The accommodation is absolutely lovely, very comfortable and so comfortable in the evenings with the woodburner alight. I feel that we were so lucky to be the first guests to stay... we enjoyed our stay so much we have already booked to come back in June. Sandra and Sean April 2012

Although the weather wasn't very kind to me I can't say a single bad word about the cottage - it's absolutely fantastic - Katerina from Prague,Czech Republic.

Our short break started with the warmest of welcomes and we felt at home through out our stay.Tinkley Cottage is the perfect get away.Well presented & equipped. We walked from the cottage each day to some amazing places, Woodchester Park,Coaley View Point,Selsley Common taking in the Cotswold Way and other unplanned places!We can't recommend you enough,we will be back.Just Fantastic!

Wonderful, we will be coming back

  • 5 of 5

We loved Tinkley Cottage - clean, modern but keeping the character of the barn. Arrived after long Friday night through half term traffic to find the place already warm and welcoming.

The surrounding area is breathtakingly beautiful - too much to see in one short weekend so we will be coming back for a longer visit.

The owners were very friendly and helpful with advice on where to visit, so we took a walk through some amazing woods down to Woodchester Mansion. Stunning!

6 stars for a 5 star week

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend staying here!! We staying for a week and it wasn't long enough. The cottage is fantastic, it's modern yet keeps the traditional farm feel! There is plenty to do with out having to travel far, but it's central location means it's a short drive away from many popular sites such as Bath.

A charming haven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our two adult daughters stayed in Nympy Cottage for 4 nights. We were very pleased with the bright, cheery cottage. The converted cart sheds were charming, very modern and comfortable. The on site owners were friendly and very helpful (we had a flat tyre), giving us good advice and directions. The little village was so quiet with only the cooing of the doves. The countryside is idyllic and beautiful. There were helpful literature and pamphlets in the cottage listing nearby walks. I appreciated having a washer and dryer available (tip: choose "Quick Wash" or you'll be waiting a long time for the other cycles!). The kitchen was well-equipped and it was very thoughtful of the Gazzards to have a jug of milk in the refrigerator upon our arrival. We highly recommend Bay Tree Farm!

Another enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Following our wonderful visit to Bay Tree Farm back in 2012, my family and I decided to return and we were not disappointed. Our visit this time coincided with the Xmas period and the Winter scenery was breathtakingly beautiful whilst out walking. Set in the heart of unspoilt rural Cotswolds, this area is certainly well worth investigating and the very helpful and friendly owners (Gazzards) are experts in the knowledge of the surrounding area. There is even a friendly pub in the village serving good food and even better local ales.

We had the same Tinkley cottage as before and again we found as clean, cosy and comfortable as before, infact, as we were arriving late, they ensured that the cottage was nice and warm for our arrival. Another return visit......most definitely!!

Tinkley Cottage in Nympsfield

  • 5 of 5

Tinkley Cottage was a really lovely place to spend a few relaxing days, very cosy and homely, and very well equipped and comfortable.

We visited the 'Wildfowl and Wetland Centre' in Slimbridge, not too far away, which was a wonderful day out.

From the property we also walked to Woodchester Mansion, a very lovely walk and an amazing House to visit

We had a great meal at the 'Egypt Mill Hotel' in Nailsworth, which we would highly recommend.


We would definitely recommend this property to others who want to explore beautiful Gloucestershire.

Would like to return

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was equipped to the highest standard. We were made to feel very much at home. Very friendly atmosphere.

The property was very clean.

Loved the layout the open plan kitchen.

We would recommend staying here to relatives and friends

In fact we already have.

There is so much to do in the area we visited Stroud Market,

Bath and Dr Jenners house.

Had an Indian takeaway from local Indian restaurant which was really good. Hope we will be able to return next year.

Would rate our stay 10 out of 10.
