We had such a beautiful time staying in the gorgeous Prince Barn over Christmas. As an adult family of 6 we were more than comfortable, and the barn was very well equipped — exactly what we were looking for considering we were cooking a full Christmas spread. The location is beautiful and quaint, and quiet but nice to stroll around. They were incredibly hospitable and helpful — especially considering they were able to accommodate our very last minute booking! Thanks for a wonderful stay!
"Great stay place for a group to stay and explore the local area and natural environment."
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
Very nice place in a very nice area and many attractions to visit.
The Barn is beautiful, very comfortable and well agenced and equipped.
What only misses is to meet the owner. This is probably the way it is done in the self-catering type of rental, if we compare to Bed and breakfast for example. Anyway, a welcome discussion would have been appraciated.

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!
Lovely spacious and well equipped accommodation, Shellingford was a lovely rural village!
The stay at the barn was fantastic and the whole family really enjoyed the time. The building 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.
My family and I stayed here for 7 nights in February 2019. We had a great stay. The barn is lovely, the two larger bedrooms especially are very nice and cozy. It accommodated 5 people very easily. Shellingford is a beautiful little village, and offers easy access to the surrounding area. The only thing I would mention is that the village itself doesn't have a lot of amenities (store, pub, etc.), so you'll need a car to get around.
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!
Superb Place To Stay!
On arrival at Goodlake Barns we were over the moon with Prince Barn. It is very well presented and very clean which is very important with self catering accommodation. The rooms are very spacious and all the bathrooms are lovely with lovely Out of Eden products to use as well, another nice touch. Housekeeping staff are very pleasant too and only too happy to help. We have stayed in many places in Oxfordshire and Goodlake Barns is by far the best. We shall definitely be booking up again.
