Quiet location, exactly as described by the owners. Well renovated and equipped barn, comfortable beds and good kitchen facilities. The top Cotswolds attractions are all within a very short drive with plenty of information and recommendations available at the property.

The location was not as clean as we would have liked, with lots of insects in the barn (but to be expected to a degree as the location is surrounded by farms). Isolated location, but nice overall - good value for money

Gorgeous location with the most beautiful view. Zero traffic or light pollution. Equipped with everything you need for families, e.g. travel cot, baby bath, stair gate. Decent beds with a good selection of pillows. Nice rainfall shower downstairs, bath upstairs. Easy to access and close to Burford, Bourton, Slaughters etc. Bring your own DVDs as wiRead morefi not strong enough to stream, oh and a gro-blind if you like a lie-in. Everything else is there inc washing liquid, cling film, cleaning stuff. Hide

The Gallery was very comfortable and so peaceful surrounded by friendly sheep. It was a short drive to Burford and many of the other beautiful villages in the Cotswolds. It was perfect for us & our 2 dogs.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The Cotswolds is home to some of the most unspoilt, historic and famous villages in England. Its honey-coloured stone buildings provide a quintessential English charm found no-where else in the world and offer a plethora of welcoming pubs, tiny tearooms and quaint streets to explore.

Once described by William Morris as ‘the most beautiful village in England’, the chocolate box village of Bibury is one of England’s most iconic hamlets, home to the peaceful River Coln and some of the most photographed houses in the country. The famous Arlington Row is a sight to behold - this row of 14th century weaver’s cottages have been the foundation of Bibury for hundreds of years and is instantly recognisable as a symbol of the Cotswold District.

If you’re seeking a relaxing day of sightseeing, shopping and traditional tearooms, head to the charming town of Cirencester, once the second largest town in Roman Britain. Proclaiming the title "The Capital of the Cotswolds", its market square is dominated by the cathedral-like Parish Church of St. John Baptist (one of the largest in England) and can be easily reached from our self-catering accommodation in Bibury, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold.

The rolling Cotswolds countryside is never too far away from your cosy holiday cottage, so you can enjoy a variety of outdoor leisure pursuits including those at The Cotswold Waterpark. This popular tourist destination in Gloucestershire is home to 150 glorious lakes where angling, archery, wakeboarding, windsurfing, birdwatching and even rally driving can be experienced. On a balmy summers day, the Cotswold Country Park and Beach is the place to go, boasting the largest inland beach in the UK.

When it comes to attractions in the Cotswolds, visitors will be spoilt for choice. Grab a stylish bargain at Bicester shopping village, talk a walk on the wild side at Longleat Safari Park, experience a day at the races in Cheltenham, admire colourful blooms at Westonbirt Arboretum, keep the kids entertained at the Cotswolds Farm Park, take a tour around Gloucester Cathedral, and enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea at Blenheim Palace. That’s just for starters, there’s plenty more things to see and do in the Cotswolds and you will love them all! Our holiday homes in the Cotswolds are the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploration, why not have a browse?
