“Thank you for such a beautiful stay at Jimmy's Barn. Such a peaceful hideaway within an easy drive of lovely towns, pubs and walks. Kitchen was well-equipped and super easy to use. As animal lovers we especially enjoyed spotting the hares on the path to the barn, meeting the horses and all the animal decor touches. Overall, a delightful stay, and we'd love to come back to Jimmy's Barn another time.”
We stayed at Jimmy's Barn for 7 weeks starting in Jan 2019. We could not have felt more at home. Jimmy's Barn is so well equipped with everything you could want which was especially important for us as a family of 4 staying so long (we even found a whisk on Pancake Day). There is a magnificent, large wood burner and a plentiful supply of logs and kindling in the garage outside. Tvs with a a good selection of dvds to sit down to; family friendly and something for everyone. The interior design of Jimmy's Barn was a real treat - quirky lampshades, ornaments and stags heads - everything you secretly love but can't get away with in your own house! The surrounding are breath-taking - the sun rises and sets right in the centre of these huge glass doors at the front, filling the house with a warm glow. We ate our breakfast to the sight of a family of five deer and occasionally spotted and elusive hare (the first time we had ever seen one)! Pheasants aplenty. Beds are very comfortable. Showers are powerful and cleaniness is top notch. Kitchen was stunning with vaulted ceilings and an amazing views to open fields at the front. Nigel (our host) was very attentive, arriving if needed such as when we had a beeping noise from the burglar alarm and once when his dog turned up in the pitch black dark having escaped and walked quite a few miles to get to us! If you are looking for a truly countrified experience, away from the hustle and bustle of modern life and enjoy being surrounded by unspoilt nature and all its offerings - this is for you
Idyllic house in the country. Stayed here over Christmas and was perfect. The hosts were fantastic and very helpful. The house itself is well equipped and comfortable. Great location for those wanting to escape to the country for a few days.
We had a brilliant stay. The house is gorgeous and the perfect base for exploring the Cotswolds. It was a great stay for a small group and we loved coming back every evening to relax in front of the fire. All amenities were great, extremely comfy beds and the hosts went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed.”
If you want peace, tranquillity and time to get back to nature then Jimmy’s Barn is perfect! It has been beautifully decorated with plenty of space for a family but it is the spectacular surroundings in the middle of the Cotswold countryside - a little oasis - that makes it so special. There are also great pub restaurants near by (check out Giles Coren’s review of the Bell).
We had a fabulous stay at Jimmy’s Barn. The house was so well equipped in every way, and lots of attention to detail. The location is wonderful detail, so peaceful, a real getaway!
We had a fabulous stay at the house. It is in such a beautiful setting, a real getaway. The house is so well equipped and the owners are close by for anything you need. The area is beautiful. We need to come back to see everything we didn't have time for.
If you're up for tranquillity, warmth by a lovely fire and some quirky design, this is the place for you. So warm, felt like a home. 360 view of countryside, no one else around, so beautiful when the sun is shining. We were lucky enough to see hare and deer. We even found some basics (milk in the fridge, tea, coffee) and a bottle of red wine left for us. Couldn't recommend it more, and my mother is thinking of returning with my father in the summer.
