We rented the whole of Goodlake Barns to entertain family and friends for our daughter's wedding. A perfect venue for this sort of gathering, with cooking facilities to make catering for 28 as easy as it could be, and a communal room big enough to seat us all for meals in comfort. A very well-run group of properties

Luxury in a lovely part of the Cotswolds


My group of 26 (16 adults + 10 kids) actually rented all 5 barns for a long weekend break, and we all had a fantastic time.

Each barn was very well presented, and all kitchens well stocked, the beds were comfy and all in all we couldn't fault the place.

There's lots to do nearby, and plenty of great places to eat as well, so we were spoiled for choice.

We went to the Cotswolds wildlife park on Saturday and that's a great day out for families. We got a takeaway curry that night from the local restaurant and it was amazing, and great value too. On Sunday we stayed at the barns, playing ball games with the kids in the private paddock, and we had a BBQ for dinner. It was way getting bits for the BBQ and for breakfasts etc..., as there was a Waitrose, Aldi and Tesco superstores.

We all loved it so much we're going to book again for 2020!

We recently stayed here and booked out the entire place, it was absolutely brilliant and The Hub made for a perfect function room. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and cosy! The customer service from the moment of booking right throughout to the end of our stay was excellent. I will definitely consider staying at Goodlake again, 10/10 all round.

Thus is the 2nd time visiting the Barn and yet again had a fantastic time. We use it for a family get together and the setup at the Barn is perfect. Most rooms have en suite bathrooms so no queues in the morning for showers, the living room is huge so we could all sit and chat but the best feature is the large kitchen/dining space. We use the island as a self serve counter and the table is plenty long enough for everyone to sit round, bearing in mind there was 11 of us as we had some guests using the Blossom barn too this is fantastic. As the weather was lovely again during our stay most of the time was spent sitting outdoors and again plenty of room with the long outdoor table and chairs, the village itself is so quiet so it was lovely just to sit out and chill.

7 golden girls had a terrific break at The Barn. Amazing property with everything to hand to make our stay comfortable. Didn't want to leave. Every room was tastefully decorated.

We stayed at The Barn for my wedding weekend and could not recommend it more highly. We booked all five cottages for family and the wedding party for the whole weekend, and it was a perfect base. The cottages were clean, spacious and just generally lovely. Andrew was really responsive and helpful, as were the StayCotswold team. Really recommend staying here!

The Barn was idyllic. It is set out in the country so had beautiful scenery and the house was even better. Had everything we needed, was spacious and very comfortable. Would definitely recommend

The stay at the barns was fantastic and the whole family really enjoyed the time. The buildings and decoration were of a very high standard and the tidiness, cleanliness and little things around the place made it more 'hotel like' (in a good way), such as the folded towels, chocolate on the beds, truffles and a few necessities around the kitchen. Overall - fantastic.

Stay Cotswold were very helpful in taking the booking, very quick to respond and very friendly making the whole process very easy and painless. We stayed at the main Barn and one of the adjoining cottages at GOODLAKE BARN, just outside Faringdon (Oxfordshire), it was one of the best weekends ever. The property and grounds are stunning and peaceful. Everything was clean and tidy, very comfortable and warm. Plenty of utensils, homeware and cooking equipment to cater for the large group.
I highly recommend it!
Thank you for a great stay!

My stay at Goodlake Barns

On arrival at Goodlake Barns I was pleasantly surprised, a lovely quiet historic hamlet of an Oxfordshire village with amazingly large accommodation. The flow of the accommodation felt almost therapeutic, certainly a home from home. I spent 3 weeks all in all and I must say It was great. The owners tend to every need, available for any questions about the area or needs. I had every convenience to hand and the surrounding pubs served great food, walks and jogging up White Horse Hill and my family nearby. Superb!

Beautiful, spotless, relaxed accommodation in a lovely setting

We hired this for a group get together, and it was utterly perfect. Andrew was incredibly helpful and kind, and we really enjoyed our experience. We hired The Barn and Pony, and they joined together to make one beautiful house. The whole place was utterly spotless, and parking was easy. We also went wake boarding and ringo riding in a campsite about 20 mins drive away, and for a night out in Oxford, which made it a great location. It would be ideal for a big family reunion, which I am now thinking of booking, as all of the properties face into a pretty, open space. It also worked out to be very cheap per night!!
Thank you for a wonderful weekend, Andrew! We couldn't have asked for anywhere better!
