A very spacious property which accommodated my husband and myself, our 3 children and their spouses and 6 grandchildren under 7 really well. We loved the large dining table where the 14 of us could eat together.
Great outdoor space too, where the children could play safely within a gated court yard. The grassed area to the rear of the barn needed an adult to supervise small children because of access to the lane, but was excellent for ball games and generally running around and letting off steam.
4 en-suites, a main bathroom and a cloakroom meant there were no queues!
As the property was within the Nature Reserve, we were able to walk and explore with the children/grandchildren before bedtime.
This was an excellent place and setting to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary this those we love.
Snipe barn was a perfect location for a hen do. The barn was immaculately clean and well resources with all you need. The barns courtyard allowed for some privacy and being able to have a hot tub made it extra great. I would thoroughly recommend.
What a perfect house for our family! There were 7 adults and 6 children under 7 (2 babies) and everyone had plenty of space to explore and we had privacy too with spacious rooms and bathrooms. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed lots of family fun and barbecues in the idyllic setting. The large kitchen and outside table and chairs could accommodate all of us and the comfortable beds meant we all slept well. Such a relaxing weekend giving us lots of family memories to cherish.......this was my favourite rented property and we would love to come back one day!
We had a fantastic stay at Snipe Barn and Rose Barn in April, 23 of us for a hen weekend. We found the property had everything we needed and was a lovely luxury stay for us. We were spread across the two barns to sleep and used Snipe Barn as our main area for dining etc. Great stay and would highly recommend for large groups.
Everything to do with the booking was very well organised and lots of help with arranging which rooms were best suited to which people and helping us accommodate everyone together for meals etc. Thank you.
Snipe Barn hosted myself and 13 guests for a relaxed Hen Weekend. The Barn is enormous, with a beautiful living space and open plan kitchen-dining area for a large group to enjoy meals. The location is stunning, my only regret is that we didn't have more time to explore.
Definitely will be coming back in the summer to make use of the BBQ facilities!
''Beautiful cottage, we had a wonderful stay.
|We all had a fabulous time, thank you so much. Will definitely choose the barns again for a weekend getaway!”
We absolutely love this place! It was perfect for our 3 generations. Lovely setting for a celebratory 65th Birthday. Quiet walks from the doorstep, delicious meals at 'The Plough' at Kelmscott. This property is highly recommended!! Darron the property manager was helpful with all of our queries - nothing was too much trouble to him. 10/10 - Thank you StayCotswold!
Fantastic house - would hugely recommend to any future guests! The house itself is really spacious and very comfortable for large groups (we were 10 adults + 4 children). We never felt on top of each other or crammed in at all. Also great that so many bedrooms are en-suite, meaning there were never any queues for the shower over the weekend! We felt very welcome and well looked after - from the communications during booking, to the really thoughtful welcome pack on arrival. The area is beautiful - with the house tucked away enough that you can enjoy the peace and quiet, but close enough to pubs and nearby towns for when you'd rather get out and explore. We'll definitely be coming back! Thanks so much.
Gorgeous house in a lovely, rural location. Millie and Fergus were great hosts and made everything easy from the start. The house was sparkling clean and really really cosy. The pictures don’t do it justice! It was much warmer than we expected it to be and the log fire made it extra cosy. Perfect property for a large party/chilled weekend away/hen do. Lovely festive touches too with the Christmas tree! I would recommend to any large groups looking for a relaxing weekend in the countryside.
''Millie & Fergus’s place is absolutely perfect for a big group get together. There is ample space, all the bedrooms are a fantastic size, the communal space has plenty of seating with a large dining table which is perfect for dinner - absolutely nothing negative to say. They were so communicative, would 100% stay here again.''
We couldn't have chosen a nicer location for our week in the Cotswolds and Snipe Barn was ideal. It was between Hungerford and Oxford where we had planned to have 2 special days showing the grandchildren where my husband was brought up in Hungerford and then at university at Oxford. Every day was different - we had amazing weather for October (we visited Coogles, walked up to the White Horse, spent an afternoon in the lovely village of Bampton as well as exploring the lovely area around the barn.)
Snipe Barn was the perfect place for a family get together. It offered the luxurious space we wanted for a group consisting of 10 adults and two young children. There was plenty of space to sit around the table and in the lounge together. It is in a lovely quite spot about 8 miles from Witney where we started our weekend meeting at The Fleece for lunch. Once we arrived at Snipe Barn we had a guided tour by one of the team there. What was particularly nice was the extra touches they provided, milk, a lovely loaf of bread, coffee and chocolates. It just made you feel special. Friday night we had a walk around part of the nature reserve and then on Saturday we went to Blenheim Palace. It was lovely to get back and light the fire in the log burner it made it all seem cosy. We would definitely come back to this location, it really did have everything we wanted and more.
Snipe Barn is in a quiet rural location of the Cotswolds on the upper reaches of the Thames. A beautiful property well furnished and with all mod cons for a large family gathering, The surrounding countryside offers pleasant and easy cycling and walking. The market towns of Bampton and Witney are within easy reach. Oxford is not far away but traffic getting near the city is busy StayCotswold were very efficient prompt and helpful. A lovely break. Thank you. Sheila

Ideal for a family break with young children. No stairs, gates to provide security and a good field. We enjoyed our break, it’s our second visit. If there’s any complaints they would be that it gets very warm, probably due to single storey construction.
A lovely peaceful location right on the nature reserve. This was a perfect barn for a big family get together. It had everything we needed and more! Massive rooms, thick doors to minimise noise, good outdoor areas, comfy beds and washing up liquid and hand soap included. Staycotswold did a great job managing our booking and were quick to reply to any questions. Highly recommended.
Just got back from a Fitness Weekend at Snipe Barn. The Barn is amazing - bedrooms very spacious, beds comfortable, kitchen and lounge areas spacious with everything you need and very clean. Outside space great. We would love to go back next year.

A fantastic place to stay in beautiful surroundings. We loved the visiting rabbits and deer.

Just wanted to say we had a brilliant weekend. The barn was everything the pictures showed and more. The weather was glorious and we sat outside for breakfast and it felt we were on holiday abroad. Darren was there to greet us and was extremely helpful. An excellent weekend. Pass on my thanks to all concerned.
