''The barn is absolutely stunning. So much thought has gone into the renovation - everything is high spec and very stylish. There is so much space yet it still feels cosy and comfortable with the huge fire. There were only two of us but it would be excellent for two couples as each room has its own bathroom and they are at opposite ends of the barn so are private. Location was good - felt like you were out in the country but it isn't far from Bourton on the water which has a lot of shops and cafes. One day we did a circular countryside walk from Bourton to upper and lower slaughter which was nice and we called in at the local Mousetrap pub. We walked up the farm lane to the barn in the dark after (about 15/20 mins) but it was actually fine as the road was illuminated from the moon. Hosts were very nice and responsive and it was helpful knowing they were only next door if we needed anything. Would highly recommend!''
''This really is the most idyllic location and matches the photos very accurately. In fact, I would say it's actually bigger in real life! amazingly designed, perfect interior. The fire was incredible. The town was walking distance and we enjoyed a lovely walk to another nearby town. Great games to play and an incredible sound system, TV etc. Kitchen was fantastic and we really appreciated the delicious bakery bread, milk and incredible homemade marmalade! We were able to use the tennis court which was a real plus and the owners were easily contactable/around if ever we needed them. We had the most wonderful time and hope to be back as soon as possible. Horses, dogs, beautiful views. What more could we want!?! Thank you so much, JB, Chris, Millie and Fergus.''
We had the perfect stay at the Barn this weekend! We traveled with another couple and two toddlers (16 months and 18 months) and this accommodation was absolutely perfect for us. We highly recommend! The Barn is exactly as described in the listing and photos. We loved the fireplace and the heated floors. In addition, the grounds were stunning. Our kiddos loved seeing the horses nearby and the many birds and pheasants running around in the fields. The kitchen had all the necessary items to cook dinner. The Barn is about a 20 minute walk from Burton on the Water and we enjoyed walking to town in the morning to stop at the recommended bakery (Bakery on the Water). We passed horses and cows and sheep! It was quintessential English countryside and made for a delightful morning both days. The hosts communicated well before and during our stay. They provided the requested baby items (cot and high chair) and even went above and beyond by placing a wood panel on the ladder so that our kiddos wouldn’t be able to climb up. We ate at two of the recommended restaurants and they were great. We would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a lovely weekend in the countryside.
A Beautiful barn in the middle of the Cotswolds. Perfect for exploring the surrounding villages or simply staying in front of the enormous fire. We just loved our weekend in your gorgeous barn, thank you!
An absolute gem hidden away in the heart of the Cotswold’s. A huge converted barn which has been decorated to a very high finish. It’s a large space but still maintains a very intimate feel - especially when the roaring open fire is burning away. Waking up in the morning, pulling back the curtains and seeing the morning dew turning to mist whilst deer play in the field was a particular highlight. The hosts are very attentive and lovely - providing a list of local eateries and bars. We will most definitely return - soon hopefully! Thank you very much.
We can’t recommend this highly enough, it’s a lovely place. The barn itself is a great space and very well appointed, very comfortable, warm and light. And the location is superb too, a mile out of the bustle of Bourton and you are amidst lovely countryside and farm life. JB and Chris are very kind and attentive hosts, and we’re particularly patient with our young girls’ insistence on interesting with horses, dogs and all kinds of other animals! Thank you! Will.
