About the property


The cottages are situated in a beautiful unspoilt medieval Cotswold Non Working Farm complete with many of its original buildings including a Dovecote. They have been recently converted from cart sheds to the highest specification & include some of the original exposed beams,oak flooring to the first floors and wood burning stoves in the living area. This enchanting Farm has hardly changed in 400 years. Set in the Heart of the beautiful Cotswold Village of Nympsfield, the cottages are within a 2 minute walk of the Rose & Crown, a short walk to Coaley Peak escarpment View Point, this point gives spectacular views over the Berkeley Vale across the River Severn to the Forest of Dean and the Brecon Beacons beyond.

Why Anne Gazzard chose Stonehouse

Born and bred in the Cotswolds, Anne at Tetbury and myself at Woodchester we both love this area and we know that Nympsfield is a truly unspoilt and undiscovered gem with a church, a pub and a real old world village atmosphere.

What makes this barn unique

Set in a real quiet village with very little traffic and within walking distance or short driving distance of many interesting, beautiful and stimulating places to visit.

Fabulous stay, would visit again

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Nympy Cottage which was fab and the owners were fab too. Lovely village and the local pub was also excellent and the food was lexcellant, well worth a visit or two. There were plenty of places to visit and lots of nice walks for the dogs. We would definately visit Bay Tree Farm again.

Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We booked both Nympy and Tinkley with our son, daughter in law and grandson(4 years old) for a long weekend. The location of the properties was ideal for exploring the Cotswolds. The conversion of the barn has been done to a high standard with many interesting and quirky features all giving rise to a first class and homely place to stay. The enclosed location is good for young children and the owners grandchildren were very welcoming to our grandson. We were all made to feel very welcome.

We hope to visit again and I would strongly recommend the property to any one who wants a welcoming rural retreat in the Cotswolds.

zauberhafte Unterkunft in idyllischer Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine wunderbare Ferienwohnung vorgefunden. DIe Einrichtung ist modern und gemütlich. Die Küche ist mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht. Uns hat der rustikale Stil der Wohnung sehr gut gefallen.

Die Wohnung ist gepflegt und sauber, mit viel Liebe eingerichtet.

Der Ort Stonehouse ist ein kleines hübsches Dorf ganz typisch für die Cotswolds. Es gibt auch einen Pub.

Wir haben Ausflüge nach Bath, Oxford, Gloucester und Highclere gemacht. Alles ist schnell erreicht.

Anne ist eine sehr nette Vermieterin.

Wir kommen gern wieder zurück .

Vielen Dank für den schönen Aufenthalt !!!
