We have all enjoyed a really relaxing time at your beautiful barn. There was plenty of space for you all to enjoy getting ready for our daughters wedding at Upcote. It was really wonderful to be all together again and able to celebrate this special occassion. Thanks for your hospitality again.
Our son's wedding was held at Stone Barn on the Saturday and we booked from the Thursday to the following Tuesday. I'm very glad we did. The property is as described and is in a very quiet location on its own plot with plenty of space. The bedrooms were comfortable, the bathrooms and en-suites spacious and well equipped. Best of all there was seating for everyone in the living area (seven of us) - not the case in most other properties in our experience. Board games available for rainy days. A very decent property and happy to recommend.
A wonderful time spent in this beautiful place with family. It could not have been lovelier and was very special because of the attention to detail and welcoming ambience. Thank you and we will certainly remember these moments forever.
We had a great long weekend to celebrate a big birthday with our two sons and family in the lovely Southwold Barn. Very well equipped and comfortable. Enjoyed walks and a visit to Compton Abdale Fete on a lovely afternoon.
What a wonderful setting for our yearly RAF reunion, its been a fabulous weekend with lovely weather too. Visited the Roman Villa, Hidcote and had super walks around the village. Barn is very comfortable and well stocked loved the peace and quiet.
We have had a wonderful stay at Southwold Barn. Such a beautiful setting and the accomodation was so well equipt. We loved sitting out in the garden and the sheep were very entertaining. The host has been so helpful and kind and her thoughtfulness was much appreciated. Some lovely independent shops, bars and restaurants in Cirencester, as was as the other Costwold villages. We'll definitely recommend to our family and friends and would love to stay again sometime.
A massive thank you for making our long weekend so enjoyable. Beautiful accomodation in gorgeous surroundings aided by very generous and friendly owners. Faultless all round. Hope to make trip in the future and would love to re-visit your lovely barn.
Extremely clean. Good quality furnishings. Very well equipped. Garden was lovely. Would love to come back.
Perfectly appointed house in a stunning Cotswold setting. Our hosts were lovely, generous and easily contacted if we needed anything - in fact went over and above with their help and kindness! The perfect get-away for our ladies weekend away.
A really wonderful weekend getaway. Great walks, fantastic pubs and a really lovely property for a quiet escape with friends!
What a weekend - how we wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you for the warm welcome and for making our stay so very special.

We have had a wonderful break here at Southwold Barn!. We had everything we could possibly need, such a bright, modern but cosy place to stay and very clean and well organised. The location has been perfect for exploring the Cotswolds and the local walk down to the Crocodile Spring with the children has kept them greatly entertained. The Barn was the perfect place to cosy up during storm Eunice and evenings were spent playing the array of board games provided. We feel greatly relaxed and revived after our stayed and all the special extras were so appreciated! A hugh thank you.
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in your beautiful Barn. We have had a lovely time and a superb wedding celebration at The Barn at Upcote. Many thanks.

Thank for a wonderful say in your lovely Barn, which was perfect for the needs of 4 adults, 2 little onse and 2 dogs.

Beautiful countryside and a lovely garden with ponds to explore.
A fabulous place for our family to meet up for Christmas, especially after not being able to be together last year. The Barn is really spacious and functionable (thank goodness, though for hostess trolley when cooking Xmas dinner for 7!). We all enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
