Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The barn was beautiful, comfortable and equipped with everything we needed for a perfect holiday. The bedrooms were large as were the bathrooms. We loved the underfloor heating as it made the spacious kitchen and living area feel cosy. The children loved the play area and seeing the horses!

We enjoyed the area as there was so much to see and do.

This is a perfect barn in a perfect location!

Beautiful barn, perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Early Xmas get together with close friends!....8 adults, 4 children and 2 dogs! By far one of the best barns we have been to! Perfect for get togethers, every room beautiful, plenty of room so not on each other's toes yet cosy when required! Looking at making it an annual thing! Great walks for dogs also!

Wonderful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week in this delightful, superb-quality accommodation. There were four generations of us- including two children under two, ninety-two year old great-grandma and a cocker spaniel and the property catered for all our needs perfectly! We were extremely lucky with the weather the week we were there and got to see the Cotswolds in all its autumnal glory, thanks to the stunning views from the comfort of the sitting area! It was a very special week where many happy memories were made and one we won't forget.
