The cottage was snug and very comfortable with everything you need. The bed was very comfortable. The log burner soon warmed up the cottage. I cooked a meal every evening and the kitchen was well equipped. The slow cooker was a bonus. The garden is enclosed but our Jack Russells did manage to escape. We loved the location. Peaceful and quiet but onRead morely a few minutes drive to M5. Would definitely go back . Hide

This comfy warm cottage is great if you like a bit of piece and quiet, and walks in the Cotswolds! There's a good range of facilities with in 5 min drive (post office shop, pubs etc) and the cottage is a great place to come back to!

Nice comfortable cottage, fantastic views with plenty of walks available from the front door, brilliant if you have a dog or two! A little drive gets you to the Cotswold Way with all its lovely walks and views. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending this lovely little cottage to anyone who enjoys a peaceful break where you can chill out.

We really enjoyed our stay! Location and view is absolutely perfect, with Bath close by, Wales a quick drive away, and everything you need around you! We'll absolutely be back, time and time again :)

A lovely cottage set in a stunning location. Tastefully decorated with all the amenities you could ask for. Lots of places of interest to visit and especially the Westonbirt aboretum. All in all we had a very restful and peaceful stay . Our dog Finn also enjoyed the freedom. We found everyone was dog friendly and handed out dog treats in all the shRead moreops which was great, as you didn't feel that the dog was a nuisance. We really loved the time we spent there and will definitely be returning. Hide

A beautiful cottage with stunning views in a very quiet location. The cottage had everything we needed, was lovely and clean to the point I wondered if any dogs had stayed there before. The owners left a lovely thoughtful welcome gift and even texted to ask if we had all that we needed. Will definitely go back again.

Pretty and compact cottage with beautiful views. Welcoming cake and ale much appreciated. Knowledge and use of fire making and maintenance essential in cold weather.

Reviewed by R Malcolm, 17th February 2017

Accessed along a narrow lane with a tight turn onto hard standing. If it's wet be careful not to reverse too far onto the grass as getting out if you are not on the plastic matting is a problem especially if you have rear wheel drive. The cottage itself is really lovely.

We enjoyed our stay at earl barn, super location for local walks with our dogs, very cosy and comfortable, nice welcome, would recommend it

We stayed in the cottage over New Year for three nights and had such a lovely time. We were left some bits and pieces to help our stay (milk, cider, cake, biscuit for our dog). The cottage was warm, comfortable and had good wifi and tv signal and the wood burner was great (once we worked out how to get it going!) The views are so breathtaking and aRead more visit to the abandoned medieval church next door is a must for keen photographers like me. Hide

Lovely place, we used it as a base to explore the surrounding area and cotswold walks. Very clean, homely (there were even Xmas Decs for our December visit) and the hosts are very helpful.

Reviewed by Penny, 11th November 2016

Lovely cottage but pictures make it look like there's no neighbours but it's across the road from a very small business plot. Could have done with more logs as it's the only source of heat and a wood axe would have been useful. Property owner was extremely helpful and welcome gifts were lovely. Overall a lovely cosy cottage.
