We had a fantastic stay at Blossom Barn. The shared courtyard and the field by the overflow parking gave plenty of space for the kids (5 and 3) to run around without travelling. However, it was also a great base for visiting various attractions - Steam Train Museum, Crocodile Farm, Cotswolds Wildlife Park, and Oxford natural history museum being a few of the best. The accomodation was comfortable and clean.

Thank you very much Katy for your fantastic review. We are happy to hear that you had an wonderful time enjoying all the attractions the Cotswolds has to offer, and we hope to welcome you back again soon.

Blossom barn was extremely comfortable and exceptionally clean. We had a safety issue with one of the dining chairs and Simon was on hand to fix it the next morning. Everything is accessible in the barn however there is no armchair in the property which is usually important to someone with mobility issues and the barn description does state that it is suitable for the disabled. A minor point, we searched everywhere for oven trays but could not find any, also no bread knife. We would certainly recommend Goodlake Barns.

Thank you for sharing your feedback Larry. We're pleased you found Blossom Barn to be comfortable and exceptionally clean for your stay. We are very sorry that you experienced an issue with one of the dining chairs and appreciate you raising this with the Property Manager so that the chair could be promptly repaired. Blossom Barn is all on one level and has an accessible shower room making it suitable for someone who is less mobile, although we appreciate your suggestion of an armchair and will share this with the Owner. We'll also pick up your feedback about the oven trays and bread knife for the benefit of future guests. Overall, it's great to hear that you enjoyed staying at Blossom Barn and would be happy to recommend this property.
