Great place to stay. We were very happy with everything including the service we got from who we booked it through. Very spacious, clean and in a beautiful place. Will definitely be going back.
A group of 8 of us stayed at the Owl Barn for a long weekend and it was the perfect location for a long weekend break. The barn itself was really big and had a great social area in the way of an open plan kitchen/dining/living area. The kitchen held lots of pots, pans, utensils etc that you need to cook up a storm.
The bedrooms were a decent size and enough bathrooms to accommodate 8 of us. On arrival, they helped us map out a nature walk to a nearby pub (1.5 hour walk 6 min by car!) which was really pretty along the Thames. There are lots more activities that you can do nearby as well.
Overall StayCotswolds were really accommodating in giving us useful advice and the facilities were great as well. I would definitely recommend for families and groups of friends alike.
The Owl Barn is every thing one could expect, set in the most beautiful countryside inside a nature reserve. The accommodation is as perfect as it could be ,with an open plan kitchen,dining and sitting area ,the kitchen is well stocked with every utensil one would need, we felt at home within minutes of arriving, the owner gave us all the information we could need, our extended weekend stay ,to celebrate a 40 th birthday passed far too quickly and the whole family were reluctant to leave for home, bedrooms were large ,well equipped and very comfortable, highly recommended .

Went away for my husbands 30th birthday with a group of our friends and shared owl and rose barn. Very well decorated communal spaces, the open plan area in owl barn was more than adequate for the 18 of us.
Fergus and his team were very accommodating prior to our arrival and with a late check out. The barns are based in beautiful surroundings and close to sainsbury's for additional grocery/wine run!
My only suggestion would be that there be more accessible bins as we had to take much of our rubbish away/to another set of bins.
Owl Barn is a great space for a large group of friends / family.
The accommodation is of a very good standard with comfortable bedrooms and sufficient, well-appointed bathrooms for a large group. Plenty of hot water for all.
The open plan nature of the kitchen/ dining area lends itself to catering easily and sociably for a large group and we liked the central island - great for entertaining.
We were disappointed with the lack of comfortable seating in the lounge. It would be ok for families with children but not for a large gathering of adults - the sofa beds were uncomfortable to sit on with no adequate back support and they were actually very badly stained, although covered with throws. The leather sofas were fine - could have done with four of them not two.
That said, the property was welcoming and cosy especially once the the log burner was lit.
There are great walks from the doorstep and the location is superb - pretty remote and very secluded despite being close to other barns.
