Perfect location and property

  • 5 of 5

The Cider Barn was perfect for our short stay. Well presented and a home from home. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful.

Ideal for a couple and although with easy access to all amenities it seems as though you are in a secluded rural area. Very peaceful.

Would highly recommend the Cider Barn and would definitely book again

We had a short break here as a surprise birthday present for my husband at the end of August. Wonderful accommodation in a lovely location perfect for exploring the Cotswolds. Really well equipped with nice little touches such as the great welcome pack on arrival. The hosts are very welcoming and on hand to answer any questions you may have. Would definitely recommend this beautifully converted property to anyone wanting to explore the area and hope to return ourselves very soon.

Even better than it looked in the photos!

  • 5 of 5

The Cidar barn is the perfect base for exploring the Cotswolds. Although close to both Cheltenham and Gloucester, it feels like you are in the depths of the countryside and the barn is a peaceful and relaxing place to come back to after your day. The accommodation has been beautifully converted and has everything you could possibly need during your stay. This,combined with the generosity of the owners in leaving tea,biscuits,cereals and even chocolates, makes it an even more special place to stay. All in all, a great holiday home!

Dear Pippa and family. Please accept our apology for the delay in writing our review, which was due to unforeseen circumstances upon our return home to Australia.

The Cider Barn was the highlight of our stay in the UK, and our 1st visit to this stunning area. It has been beautifully and lovingly restored, and has everything you could possibly need. A fabulous and well equipped kitchen if you wish to self cater, very comfy bed, plenty of wardrobe space and room for your luggage, a nice hot shower with extras like shampoo etc, and a warm and inviting sitting area to relax in the evenings. There is also a wealth of information, maps,pamphlets etc, provided in the apartment for places to visit in the surrounding areas. An unexpected bonus was finding tea/coffee, cereals and lots of extras to use for breakfast. What a wonderful and thoughtful surprise.

The apartment is in a great location to visit the many picturesque villages and towns, but is away from the hustle and bustle of the main highways, providing a quiet haven to return to each day. There are supermarkets within easy driving distance for any essentials you may need.

We just loved it, our only regret is that 6 days was not long enough.

We sincerely enjoyed this special apartment and the fabulous and friendly hosts, Pippa, David, Marion and Rob. Thankyou for everything, we absolutely hope to return. Take care, Sylvia and Murray
