About mrs velvet phillips

Hi we are Kevin and Velvet, we have made The Little Barn as comfortable and cosy as possible for your enjoyment. We hope you will love this area as much as we do. We are on hand if you need to contact us for anything we live in the cottage adjacent to The Little Barn, however we make a point of leaving you to enjoy your holiday in peace and with privacy, and have designated the front gardens and private patio area just for you whilst you are staying.

mrs velvet phillips purchased this barn in 2010

Why mrs velvet phillips chose Nettleton

We bought this property in West Kington as it is a beautiful area to live ,very tranquil, but with ease of access to so many other areas of interest, and remote enough from the madding crowds.

What makes this barn unique

Whilst staying at The Little Barn you will have the convenience of staying in a lovely rural setting whilst being only a stones throw away from many visitor attractions, other villages/towns of interest. The Little Barn is a listed property, and sits adjacent to our home: originally a Beaufort estate cottage, which is an Historical grade two listed Thatched Cottage dating back to the 1500's.

There are signed walks throughout the pretty village and beyond.

We hope you will feel like you are part of the family, and aim to make you feel relaxed and comfortable at all times. You have parking directly outside the little barn for ease of unpacking etc.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Velvet,

You are more than welcome we loved the cottage and it met all of our needs for the weekend. Badminton was fantastic and the weather stayed in our favour.

We are looking at booking the 4th till the 6th May next year so will let you know straight away.

Look forward to seeing you again.

Kind regards Sally xx

A warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a quiet and very restful weekend at the barn and particularly enjoyed sitting in the pretty garden with a cup of tea and walking in pleasant, tranquil countryside from our door. The property met all our expectations from the listing and far exceeded them with all the little extra thoughtful touches from a bottle of wine, biscuits, a pint of milk to strawberries and local ice cream. We especially appreciated the cupboard full of coffee, teas and hot chocolate as we have never encountered this amount of choice in a holiday rental before! We visited the local Saluation Inn for a pleasant evening meal and beautiful Castle Combe as well as Chalfield Manor in the summer sunshine. A memorable weekend. indeed.
