We actually stayed here back in May but I have longed to return ever since.
I could not say a single bad word about this hotel, I was brought here as a surprise birthday gift and it literally took my breath away, it's the most wonderful place I've stayed in to date.
As we drove up to the property I was stunned at how beautiful the building was, and the grounds so impeccably kept.
A birthday card from the employees was left in my room, along with complimentary Champagne. We stayed in Room 1 - just stunning, particularly the bathroom complete with twin bath tubs, and large shower. We were lucky enough to be located so that we had views almost all the way around the property and its beautiful grounds.
The spa was a real treat, with a heated outdoor pool which meant that even with a slight chill in the air we could relax in comfort.
Dinner was excellent and we were pleased to find out that many of the ingredients were locally sourced, and some even foraged from the grounds by the chef himself. The food was really delicious, and I was treated to a lovely birthday dessert by the restaurant manager. He and the rest of the staff were so attentive without even a hint of pretentiousness and we were made to feel like friends coming to visit.
The next day after a delightful breakfast in the garden, we returned to the spa for another treatment, and then once again found ourselves in the garden for afternoon tea.
The price of our stay was not cheap, but you really get what you pay for, and to me the memories I took away and the experience as a whole was totally worth every penny.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Barnsley House is your very own (fully staffed) country house set in extensive landscaped gardens near Cirencester in Gloucestershire. The Hotel has a dedicated spa, private cinema and 18 large and luxurious bedrooms to choose from. The Potager restaurant looks out to the gardens and is quite lovely. Sprigs of rosemary and linen napkins dress the tables with menus inspired from the Barnsley garden seasonal crops and local produce. If you tire of the daily home baked bread and crumbly shortbread biscuits with your afternoon tea, you can always nip across the road to our village pub. It's actually called 'The Village Pub' and delivers everything you want a village pub to deliver - open fires, papers, pints and delicious food! ... more less
