It is clean, modern & contemporary with vaulted ceilings, a fabulous lounge, great sofas & an excellent wood burner, ideal for what was a very cold & damp February weekend. The bedrooms were modern & spacious with lovely ensuites. The large well equipped kitchen with beautiful granite work tops was perfect, with its large dining area for our meals together. Loved the light airy feel of the open plan glass frontage. The little touches did not go unnoticed such as the ready filled log basket, liquid soaps in the bathrooms, plenty of dish washer tablets & washing up liquid. Many self catering places do not offer these lovely add ons. Snipe Barn gave us a very special & memorable weekend. Would love to return for a Christmas break in the future. Thank you Staycotswold for your friendly & efficient service throughout 😀

It was a Christmas present to my husband, and it didn't disappoint. A real treat! When we arrived the wind was howling and the rain lashing, but inside it was warm and cosy. We loved many things about the cottage - the nespresso coffee machine, woodburner, bath, lovely views from the bedroom and the pub at the end of the road!! We would definitely recommend, and love to come back. Just something to be aware of; the church bells ring on the hour and through the night. I am a bell ringer so it didn't bother me! Thank you for making our getaway special from Stefan and Joanne.
