Our Stay in Stonesfield

5 of 5
Our family stayed at Stonesfield for my husband's 60th birthday celebrations and it really helped to make this a memorable weekend. The house was as described and more, particularly as the owner had gone to the trouble of putting up Christmas decorations and the tree for our celebrations. She also made sure that we had extra crockery etc for a party with additional guests on the Saturday evening, as well as bedding for a couple of extra guests staying over. The Arctic BBQ was a hit - great fun, and plenty of room for about 18 to sit round inside, very cosy! All in all, a great place - well equipped and maintained, and with a homely feel, and the owner couldn't have been more helpful.

Perfect place for a 60th Birthday celebration!

5 of 5
Snipe barn was perfect for our family get together celebrating my sister's 60th Birthday. 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 😀

Wonderfully cosy cottage, perfect location and suited all our needs. Wine in the fridge to welcome us was a lovely personal touch and delicious! Thank you for making us feel so at home. See you again!
