Cozy home from home stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Cider Barn and yet again we weren't disappointed.

The barn is warm and cosy and has everything you need for an enjoyable stay.

Cheltenham has a great variety of shops and restaurants so we managed to get all of our Christmas shopping done aswell which was a bonus!

Thanks again for your hospitality and see you again soon x

Amazing property.. 5 star ++++

  • 5 of 5

Me and my partner had such a lovely stay at cider barn. It's warm and cosy, they had provided everything we needed (towels, blankets, food!!!-bread,milk,cereal, butter, spreads, oil, tomato sauce, etc.) they had a folder with all the places and things to do, take away menus and pubs to eat at. The shower was to die for! Very friendly people who live opposite and below. Would 100% recommend, and we will most deffinately be returning!!

Beautiful barn conversion in the Cotswolds 10/10

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this beautiful property with my wife and 18 month old son. The property was extremely clean and well-maintained.

The friendly owners welcomed us on arrival and showed us around the barn. We had brought some food with us but it was lovely to find that the kitchen had been stocked with essentials including milk, bread, cereal and coffee.

This a perfect place for children and there were even some toys and books for him to play with.

The property is a short drive to Cheltenham and we would recommend visiting Pittville Park which includes a wonderful children's play area.

We normally stay in hotels and this was the first time that we have booked through HomeAway. I would not hesitate to recommend this as a place to stay and as an alternative to expensive hotels with less character.

We stayed for 3 nights in this cosy apartment and I didn't want to leave!

We felt so at home in this beautiful place and it was amazing returning to such a wonderful place after a busy day exploring. It is in a perfect location, 10 minute drive from the centre of Cheltenham and a short drive to Gloucester, so incredibly convenient

So many things were provided for us, including milk, breakfast essentials and other lovely things which made the stay even better. The place was spotless when we arrived and everything we could possibly need was provided for us.

The owners were very friendly and were around if we needed them.

Would 100% recommend to friends and relatives and will hopefully be returning at some point as we enjoyed our stay so much!

Thank you :) xx

Beautiful Barn Conversion

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely holiday rental. All of our interactions with the owners were positive and friendly, the space was large,clean and nicely decorated, the kitchen was great (the bread and milk, coffee, tea were appreciated!) The location was good for exploring the Cotswold's. To top it all off we felt the price was very good value! I would not hesitate to recommend this place to friends and family.

This was a superior property, in excellent order and tastefully furnished

  • 5 of 5

Without doubt this was the best self-catering unit we have ever stayed in. This comment is based on the fact that we also did self-catering on our farm so tend to by ultra critical.

Everything was of the highest quality and nothing was missed. Breakfast items were provided as well as eggs , biscuits and milk.

The barn is situated in beautiful countryside.

We found the owners friendly and helpful and we would definitely stay again.
