Stay in our beautifully presented 2 bedroom spacious cottage in secluded gardens
We bought the Barn conversion as a 'big project' in 2011 after moving from Buckinghamshire. We have completed the barn and now fully renovated the outbuilding "the cottage". The properties are set in 1 acre of gardens, overlooking open fields.
Helen purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Helen chose Swindon
When we viewed this property back in 2010 we were certain this was our family home. The barn windows, the natural Cotswold stone and expansive gardens, made this property an idyllic location. Marston Meysey is a charming village with the best tourist attractions of the region on our doorstep.

I had a great time there and the host we really great
What a lovely place to stay!
We had a wonderful short break in Marston Meysey. Helen’s cottage is absolutely lovely and fitted out really nicely. Being able to use the garden to the rear with direct access to local fields (and the pub!) was great. Lots of exploring to do in the local area. We would love to come back again.
Wonderful stay at Barn Owl Cottage
We all loved our stay here. Beautiful countryside, lovely cottage and Helen and Martin were wonderful hosts. We made various day trips exploring the Cotswolds. Loved The Old Spotted Cow! Would love to return one day.
Beautiful Cottage in a Peaceful Setting
We spent 3 nights in Helen's lovely cottage. It had everything we needed for our short stay. We had two young children with us who really enjoyed the large garden. The cottage was close to lots of great places for days out with your family. Helen greeted us when we arrived and was warm and helpful. I would recommend this cottage!
Beautiful cottage in quiet surroundings
Friendly host, lovely accommodation a fabulous relaxing 2 day stay
Relaxed Christmas break
We had a 2 night stay over the Christmas period. We were 2 couples and a young baby.
Very relaxed and comfortable. Warm and cosy. Comfortable bed. We had everything we needed. Helen was very helpful and friendly.
Only suggestion and its nothing major in the grand scheme is that it would have been great if the main lights were dimmable. Otherwise the living area is well proportioned and comfortable.
Definately recommend for a small family or 2 couples.
The cottage is ideally located for visitors to the Royal International Air Tattoo as it is a short walk to one of the main entrance gates.
The local village pub "The Old Spotted Cow" is only a two minute walk with its log fires, craft beers and delicious home made meals.
