I booked Barncastle and Barncottage for my best friends hen do. Val was extremely helpful and patient answering all my many questions when booking and provided me with some local attractions, amenities and ideas.
My whole party of 13 ladies were all absolutely blown away by the place. It is stunning, beautifully decorated and set-out, clean and equipped with everything you could need. The many little touches, such as the cake and Prosecco were very well received and the kitchen and living areas were perfect for our needs. The outdoor space is a fantastic addition and the BBQ's provided and large outdoor table were well used. It was lovely to meet Val in person when she came and joined us for a glass of wine on the Sunday evening, and I have no hesitation in recommending this venue to anyone else. If you are looking for excellent accommodation in a truly gorgeous part of the country then this is your place. Thanks Val for helping make the weekend such a special one for a lovely group of ladies. x
We have just spent a wonderful long weekend at Barncastle celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary with the family. Barncastle is a truly beautiful house with so much space for 10 people and everyone is provided for.A superb Victoria sponge, homemade marmalade, milk, Apple juice, prosecco and fresh flowers were waiting for us on our arrival. The Grandchildren loved the house and they had their own sitting area with tv, books and dvds. They enjoyed playing indoors and outside in the lovely big garden.we were so lucky with the weather and sat outside in the evenings admiring the beautiful views across the fields. It has to be the most fabulous holiday home we have ever stayed in and hope to go back again soon as we couldn't fault it. Thank you Val for making our special anniversary a time to always remember with providing us with such a fantastic place to celebrate called Barncastle.
Barncottage is very convenient for the Cotswolds and has beautiful views over the valley.
My daughter and I had a lovely week and were delighted with all the unexpected extras -- the Prosecco, marmalade, cake, milk etc., the list goes on. We were really comfortable and felt at home.
Val was really helpful and found some maps for us which were great for our walks.
She even let us look in Barncastle and we will certainly be recommending both venues and hope to be back soon!
We were a group of 8 celebrating 2 birthdays and booked Barncastle for the May Day Bank Holiday weekend. The whole weekend was superb. Barncastle itself is a lovely house, with everyone provided, including the things like washing up liquid, dishwasher tabs, shower gel, face clothes, hairdryers and many other essentials that other self catering properties do not seem to provide. There was a beautiful Victoria sponge waiting for us, along with a jar of home made marmalade, milk, local apple juice, tea, coffee, sugar and a lovely bottle of Prosecco in the fridge. Everything was great, including the weather, which was wall to wall sunshine all weekend. There were also sunloungers and cushions provided and a very well stocked kitchen with crockery, cutlery etc. Nothing had been forgotten. I cannot recommend this house enough. We have stayed in many properties over the years and this is by far the best any of us have ever stayed in. We hope to be back sometime.
What an amazing time we have just had at Barncastle! Accommodation is outstanding, so spacious. Plenty of living space for 8 adults and 2 children.
Lots of outdoor space, barbecues, picnic equipment and delightful personal touches like fresh flowers and homemade cake! Too many lovely touches to mention.
Hoping for a return trip next year!
Wow! What a place. Stunningly refurbished old barn. Sympathetically restored.
All mod cons, 5 double bedrooms. 4 bathrooms, two with baths.
Beautiful living space, log burners, with logs provided for 1-2 days. Just to warm the cockles after a long walk.
Thank you so much for the homemade Victoria sponge, and marmalade. Really yummy. Took some home for my kids, loved it.
Real treat to be there with my girlfriends, just enjoyed each other’s company.
Thank you so much. Will be back
We stayed here as a family with grandparents to grandchildren, 10 in total. Barncastle was faultless. There was plenty of space, with no one feeling crowded or on top of each other. We had many plans to go but the children wanted to stay in the 'holiday house' and play in the garden! Communication was excellent, the extras were faultless and everything had been thought of. A wonderful time with lots of memories made, thank you.
