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.
