Completed in 2009 the two barns of original red brick have been lovingly restored to an exceptional standard retaining many original features of traditional oak trusses, solid stone flooring and beautiful gardens but with the modern luxury of under-floor heating. Activities available are abundant ranging from enjoying the tranquility to taking day trips to the many local cities to enjoying a game of golf, fishing, local equestrian attractions such as Badminton, Chepstow and Cheltenham and walking the Cotswold Way. The towns and villages nearby harbour a variety of pubs and restaurants or if you prefer to cater for yourselves the cottages are well equipped with a modern kitchens. We look forward to welcoming you to this peaceful and delightful part of the English countryside.

Spacious, homely nest away in the countryside
Stayed in the blackberry barn with our dog, it felt amazing and luxurious, perfect for a romantic weekend away. the shower in itself was amazing but it was also all the little details and the huge super king size bed. Great if you love to have long walks in the country side and a wonderfully warm, spacious and comfortable nest to get back to. Would recommend and expect to be back soon.
We stayed at Blackberry Barn for a second time (and already booked a third stay). We have family close by and this is the perfect place to stay with the dog whilst visiting. There are great walks straight from the door and plenty of places to visit within an hour by car.
The accommodation is spacious and clean with lovely views.
The barn is in a quiet and peaceful location although you have to negotiate narrow lanes to access it. The view from the barn is delightful and although there is a railway line nearby there is very little noise. It is adjoined to another barn but you have totally separate parking spaces and there was no noise coming through the wall. We had a tea tray on arrival of tea bags, coffee sachets and biscuits, however the milk seemed to have been overlooked but luckily we had taken our own with us. The bedroom is very large with a kingsize bed, settee, wardrobe and dressing table with plenty of drawers for clothes and lots of hangers in the wardrobe. There was also a tv. The bathroom was superb with a large bath and separate wetroom rain shower and hand held shower. The bath towels were a little on the small size. The main part of the barn is the kitchen/dining room/lounge. The kitchen is well equipped with everything necessary for cooking plus a fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. The dining table is a good size and the lounge area has a good size settee plus tv and dvd player. The barn is warm and well lit both naturally and with good lighting although the under counter lights did not appear to work. The folder with local information and appliance user guide was very useful. It is possible to do walks from the barn across the fields. I would definitely recommend this property and would like to return sometime.
Thank you so much for your lovely review of Blackberry Barn, we are thrilled your enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Great barn in a lovely location
Lovely barn in a rural location. Underfloor heating was lovely. The barn itself was well appointed with everything we needed. I was a little worried about the location of the railway line, there was some noise but nothing that put me off; in fact my little boy thought it was great to see the trains going by. There are some good local farm shops and villages in the surrounding area. Well worth a visit. would certainly recommend a stay here.
Thank you very much for your lovely review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back anytime.
