Lechlade is a bustling town on the River Thames and the gateway to the Cotswolds. The Barn at Lechlade sits in the grounds of Bridge House, built in Cotswold stone in the late 17th century and retaining many of it's original period charms. It has a large open plan sitting room with plenty of space to relax overlooking the beautiful gardens. The area is steeped in history and dotted with picturesque Cotswold villages to explore. Lechlade is surrounded by beautiful countryside to explore on foot or by bike on one of the many cycle routes. There are plenty of opportunities for fishing or boating on the river or book a round of golf at one of the nearby golf courses. The towns of Cirencester, Cheltenham and Oxford are all within easy reach with all they have to offer, whether it's shopping and fashion you're after or a literary or music festival or a day at the races. If it's fine dining you're after then try one of the fabulous restaurants or gastro pubs all just minutes away.
I am a mother of 3 with 2 girls now at University and a boy taking his GCSE's. I live in Lechlade with my partner Peter and 2 black labradors. I am a fashion stylist and fitness instructor with an active and busy business and social life. I love entertaining and love sharing my gorgeous barn with guests whilst they visit the Cotswolds.
Deborah Dyer purchased this barn in 2012
I've lived in Lechlade for years and when faced with moving I couldn't leave the area. I like being in the Cotswolds where you can experience the beautiful countryside (including walking my dogs down the Thames every morning) while still being close to Cheltenham and Oxford for that all important retail therapy.
On the edge of Lechlade, you'll sample the real cotswold life - peace and tranquility but with access to all the activities that come with a cotswold village by the Thames. The main town of Lechlade offers riverside pubs and quintessential village shops. Its a popular fishing location and idyllic for that afternoon roast and post meal stroll. A little further up the road Cheltenham and Oxford beckons. Shopping trips to Cheltenham can be organised or you can simply relax in comfort at the Barn. Either way, we offer a real experience you're sure to remember.

We really enjoyed our stay at Lechlade. Deborah did everything to make us feel very welcome, including a home made cake. The property is lovely, clean, tidy and with everything you need. I loved all of the finishing touches including snuggly dressing gowns. Additionally there were plenty of toys for my nephew and DVDs. The local area is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hope to be back.
The barn in Lechlade is a great place to stay when visiting the Cotswolds. Deborah is a fantastic host and very helpful, even leaving us a lovely afternoon cream tea! The barn is very clean and spacious and has everything you require during your stay, even a cot, high chair and bath if visiting with a baby. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others!
A very relaxing holiday staying in The Barn, we were made very welcome by Deborah and family including dogs! We felt totally at home with every convenience to hand. The gardens were beautiful, well established, children friendly but lovely just to stroll around. We hope to return in the future.
We were delighted to arrive at The Barn in Lechlade on Thames. It was a last minute booking and we were not disappointed. It was everything we wanted in a gorgeous converted barn. Bursting with style with lots of lovely little touches including a most delicious homemade lemon drizzle cake. Deborah was an amazing host who cooked us the most incredible breakfast; suffice to say there was no need for lunch that day! My daughter loved the Barn and didn't want to leave. She fell in love with the two dogs Brian and Boris and enjoyed walking them through the sheep fields. Lechlade is a great base for exploring the Cotswolds; without being a busy town itself. We also enjoyed a dinner at Kushi the local Indian restaurant. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer. We hope one day we can return. Thanks Deborah.
Amazing barn beautiful inside and out. Walked into homemade cake. All the personal touches were lovely tea coffee facilties in the bedrooms along with home made sweets. Breakfast cooked by the owner of the barn is a must to have was lovely. .definitely would go back and recommend. 5* throughout.
Fab welcome with yummy cake! Lovely barn conversion with luxurious comfort and style. Big fluffy towels, comfortable bed. Safe parking and good for Cotswold touring. Short distance to shops, river and pubs/restaurants, also handy for.Raf Brize Norton where our son is stationed. Highly recommend!
