Beautiful Barn

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our family stay at Cider Barn. The barn is beautifully decorated to a high standard, it's warm and very comfortable. It's fully equipped with everything you could need and more. It's clear a lot of thought has gone into this holiday home.

There was plenty of room for the 4 of us and the owners kindly rearranged the bedroom to fit two extra mattesses in for our children.

Marion was friendly and welcoming and even left some Easter treats for our young daughters which was a lovely touch.

We enjoyed looking out to the countryside views and had some lovely days out. We would certainly recommend Cider Barn to anyone!

Great location, a very well equipped rental property. A lot of thought has gone into setting this up and it shows in the attention to detail and tasteful decor. A lovely comfortable place to stay.

Luxurious, spacious, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived on the property we knew this was going to be something special. Upon being greeted by Marion, we were shown around the first floor apartment and were so happy with what we saw. It was spacious, warm, cosy, and the little touches provided were a real sign that the owner cared.

Our stay was based around us going out walking everyday, and the position of this property was perfect. It was quick and easy to get to the whole of the Cotswolds, and was also located near plenty of pubs, restaurants, and supermarkets.

I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone I speak to about our little break.

And the best part was, she said YES!

Absolutely Lovely

  • 5 of 5

At first we got a little lost, but Marion was on hand to help and instruct us. We had a lovely warm welcome, and were given directions to the nearly supermarket and surroundings . This cottage has everything you could think of, Tea, coffee, cereals, milk, orange juice, biscuits, sugar, pots, pans, you name it! Not only to mention the amazing views, and walks around too. We visited so many beautiful places on our stay, and I would definitely recommend for you to visit Bribery if you do stay here.

Very well equipped cottage in quiet rural location but close to Cheltenham

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was spacious and very well equipped with even milk, juice, bread, butter etc provided. It was a good base for us to complete another couple of sections of the Cotswold Way with bus stop 5 minutes walk away. We also took bus into Cheltenham one evening for dinner. Some instructions on how to find the place would be handy.

A spacious and comfortable retreat for two

  • 4 of 5

This converted barn has a lovely, welcoming feel. The flowers were a beautiful addition and the essentials left for us in the fridge were much appreciated. There is lots of space for two people - the bedroom being a very comfortable size with plenty of storage. It is attractively decorated and you will find everything you need. A good jumping off spot for visiting the Cotswolds.
