Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Fab Accommodation and lovely location
We stayed here for 4 nights with our friendly dog. Very clean and comfortable. Plenty of room. Nice touches around the barn even for the dog! Handy garden to let dog out early morning or late at night with doors opening from bedrooms into garden. Nice decking at front with table and chairs if you get the weather. Only thing I would suggest as it is dog friendly is maybe having a gate on the barn garden so your dog can't get out as it is quite close to the little road. Lovely fresh bread left for us and jam and milk in the fridge. Tea/Coffee/sugar/cooking oil/cooking film/foil etc all available to use in the barn. Comfy double bedroom and twin single beds. Met the host Louise who was very friendly and helpful. Very pretty location. We stayed for the Badminton horse trials event which was about 20mins derive away. Plenty of other places to visit around this very pretty countryside. Plus pub opposite which serves nice reasonable priced pub food. Highly recommended place to stay hopefully we will be back to enjoy again. Thankyou Louise for helping us enjoy your lovely barn accommodation.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a detailed and lovely review. We are so happy that The Barn provided everything you needed for your visit to Badminton Horse Trials. Thank you for your comment regarding the Barn garden. Despite the Barns private garden not having fencing leading into the bigger garden, once the front gate is shut, the garden is fully enclosed so pets can't wander out. That said, should you ever return, or other guests need it, we would be happy to put up some temporary fencing to enclose the Barns smaller, private garden. Many thanks and hopefully we will see you again! Louise & Jim

Perfect holiday home in a lovely Wiltshire village with friendly hosts
The photos do it justice, it’s very nice and we had a relaxing stay. On arrival we were greeted by the hosts, Louise and Jim. There was artisan bread, homemade jam, butter, tea and coffee waiting for us. The facilities are top notch. It’s very quiet. Definitely recommended!

Beautiful well appointed barn in quiet Wiltshire village
We had a lovely few days in the barn at Daubneys. Beautifully decorated and well appointed with everything you need for a relaxing time. Together with husband, 2 kids, and our spaniel, we explored local villages and countryside, Westonbirt arboretum, Bath, Prior Park Landscape Gardens. The beds are extremely comfy, the barn was spotlessly clean and we really appreciated the welcome supplies and local info. I would highly recommend

Lovely Cotswold Break.
We booked a two night break at the barn, It simply was not long enough. We arrived to a freshly baked loaf of bread, jam and butter, and milk in the fridge. Everything you could need, was there ready! It was the perfect base to explore the Cotswolds. Louise and James were the ideal hosts, they printed off a list of places to visit, and all of them were excellent. The Barn itself, was idyllic, child friendly. The kids had somewhere to relax and chill after busy days out. We did not need the log burner, but I can imagine its lovely during the winter months. We enjoyed our stay so very much, and will definately return soon!!

Great barn
We really enjoyed our stay in the barn. It was bright and clean and very well equipped. The beds were very comfortable. The location was great, we visited Bath easily, Bristol, Castle Coombe, the Arboretum, the Cotswold Sculpture Park, Solsbury Hill and Lacock. There were a couple of handy shops in the village. The Six Bells Inn in the village had very good service, a large garden and a pizza van at weekends.

Beautiful barn!
We had a fantastic week at the barn! A really beautiful holiday let, spotlessly clean on our arrival and owners Jim and Louise were very welcoming. Great for kids, ours loved the garden and it felt very safe for them. Colerne is a lovely little village with a great little park for the kids in the evening. We would definitely stay again!
