Prince Barn was absolutely perfect for our stay, with plenty of space for us. It was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The beds were huge, comfortable and had crisp fresh bedding on them. The showers were hot and powerful with plenty of towels supplied. The directions given were easily followed and pick up of the key was very straightforward.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Price Barn and that it was the perfect place for your stay in the Cotswolds. We hope to welcome you back again soon.

The property is excellent as it has been for our previous stays however the lack of a coffee plunger, dish washing tablets, washing up detergent, and a reasonable number of garbage bags will remain top of mind for our next holiday. Perhaps an increased cost may be a way of not interrupting our stay and ensuring we don’t have to drive some distance to the supermarket to buy items we were not expecting to have to buy. Thank you Bernard

Thank you Bernard for your review, we have made note of your comments about the lack of various items and passed your comments on to the owners. We are glad that overall you had an excellent stay and hope to welcome you back again soon.

Although generally both Prince and the barn were clean there were a lot of cobwebs. In the bedrooms on the bedside tables. Which should be visible.

Thank you for taking time to bring this to our attention, I will let the housekeeping team know so this should not be a problem in the future. I hope that overall you enjoyed your stay and that we can welcome you back to the Cotswolds soon.
