We received a lovely friendly welcome with lots of information about the area. The barn was perfect for my wife and I, and our dog. For a small property it has a very good range of equipment.

The Old Barn is small but proved quite adequate for our needs. We were in the area for our son's wedding so really spent little time during the day at the cottage. It was a comfortable, cosy retreat to return to at the end of the day. We were made very welcome by Mandy, the owner, including her home made apple cake on arrival. We were really happy Read moreand would definitely consider staying there again. Hide

Lovely welcome from the owner of the property with home baked brownies. Clean and tidy cottage on the small side but cosy wood burner and very quiet location. No pubs in walking distance but lots of good eating places nearby and picturesque places to visit.

Reviewed by Roger, 31st August 2017

For the price paid for four nights we consider the property a little small and cramped. The bed was in our opinion too firm - a matter of preference. The situation of the Cottage was for our purposes ideal and the owners were very welcoming and friendly. Our spaniel loved the local walks. A pity we did not have longer to fully explore the area.

Perfect for a couple, with a welcoming and helpful hosts. We cycled from Gloucester station with our Jack Russell in a basket on the bike. We mainly walked the local area with a different walk every day. We also got the bus (from the top of the nearby very steep hill) to Stroud one day and then visited Nailsworth. The highlight for a Laurie Lee fanRead more was Slad (3hr walk). Download the Slad Valley app before you go. Have at least a pint in the Woolpack but eating there is a treat (taxi back 18). Hide

Very welcoming and homely, lovely setting with a tuneful brook bubbling next to the patio. Cottage owners were especially helpful with local knowledge. Ideal setting for peace and quiet and within some easy walks. We had a lovely week there.

Reviewed by CATHY, 13th May 2017

We chose this property because it was close to the Cotswold Way. It suited us well.We were also pleased to find we could walk off road to the Prinkash Bird and Deer Park in less than 20 minutes. We could also walk to Upton St Leonard's off road and most of the route to the Kings Head pub. The Barn is a well placed self catering property.
