Location Information

Winterberry Cottage is located in the heart of the peaceful village of Barnsley, home to one of the best pubs in the Cotswolds, 'The Village Pub', as well as Barnsley House hotel, which offers fine dining and spa facilities.
For your shopping essentials, there is The Organic Farmshop located on Abbey home farm, Burford road, GL7 5HF or a local Co-op/petrol station is just 3 miles away on the roundabout & junction b4425.
For a wider selection of gastropubs, cafes, boutique shops or larger superstores, why not visit the largest Cotswold market town in the region, Cirencester, only four miles away and well worth a visit!.
Barnsley sits in the heart of the North Cotswolds and is perfectly placed for visiting the much loved towns and villages of Bibury (one of the most famous Cotswold villages!), Chedworth, Burford, Stroud, Tetbury, Nailsworth, Cheltenham and Gloucester.


The cottage is very pretty, with a lovely back garden, very comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, excellent showers and comfortable furnishings but a number of issues spoilt our stay. The village is certainly not peaceful, in fact the rush hour traffic starts at 5.30am., not helped by single glazed window., The farm at the rear of the property was also very noisy. The stairs are extremely steep, narrow and twisting - not made clear in the description of the property. As we are both over 70 this made life very difficult for us. The house was generally clean but there were areas where it was not: dust on bedheads, cobwebs and dust on walls and behind fixtures and fittings, dirty window frames etc. The property looks tired in places, especially the hall and stairs with lots of scuff marks on the walls. It needs redecorating. There was no information pack so no instruction booklets for appliances, no contact information for local services eg GP, dentist, hospital etc and no information about refuse collection and recycling. I have seen that mentioned in other reviews but it appears not to have been followed up. This property is not cheap to rent and for the price we expected a higher quality overall so - a mixed bag,

Winterberry is a characterful old Cotswold property; we are sorry to hear that the stairs gave you difficulty. It is possible to do a 3D tour of the property by clicking on the Matterport images on our website and view the photograph. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about the housekeeping and information pack, we will pass your comments on to the owner and their appointed property manager for them to action and we apolgise that these items were overlooked for you stay. Overall, we are pleased you enjoyed the comfort of Winterberry Cottage and appreciated its lovely back garden.
