A beautiful country home in an adorable village in the Cotswolds. We stayed in a junior suite which was a short walk from the main house. In the main house is the bar, lounge area and the main restaurant. The spa is a 1 min walk across the gardens.
This hotel is stunning - but it is also very expensive! Personally think it would have been better value for money to stay at the pub down the road - it's connected with the hotel and has lovely rooms, and as you have to go outside to get to the restaurant & spa anyway, it wouldn't make much difference!
Our meal at the pub was much better than our meal at the hotel restaurant - probably bad luck, but there was gravel in the bread and the staff charged us for 2 bottles of wine rather than 1 by accident. When we told the waiting staff they didn't react very well, but when we told management on check out they took the first bottle of wine off the bill which we appreciated. The spa is lovely - small outdoor plunge pool (bit on the chilly side), large lounge area, sauna and steam room. Lovely views. A jacuzzi/hot tub would make it perfect! Room service breakfast was fantastic.
This review sounds more negative than I intend it to be... this is an incredible place and we had a great weekend, but for the price I would have liked perfection!!
- 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
