What a great place! Beautiful and cozy barn located near so many fun villages to explore! Catherine was a great host and made us feel at home!

Awesome Place!

This house is the most stunning, stylish wonderful, unique house we have ever stayed in. Everything was idyllic and perfect. The beds and bedding are heavenly, the kitchen is perfect, the garden is a work of art, the living room is awesome, comfortable, stylish, spacious,. homely. Our only regret is that it was too hot in the evenings in Cotswolds that weekend to light the fire. The location is wonderful - right on the village green next to an award winning gastro pub with the finest staff. I have not stopped talking about the whole experience since we returned to London. What a find!!!! … I think it will be absolutely impossible to beat. We can't believe our luck in finding this place.

Hooray for a joyous holiday in the Cotswolds with you, Catherine and the beautiful Village Barn in Bledington. Thank you so much for your generous hospitality. It was a dream holiday for us

Catherine is a superb host as noted by previous guests. She cares deeply that her guests have a five star experience and her attention to detail ensures that they do. From the warm down quilts in the winter, the dressing gowns provided for each guest (we are a family of five), the fridge stocked with essentials for a breakfast and snack, to the plentiful bath linen, Catherine ensures her guests have a comfortable stay. The house is as described, tastefully decorated and fitted out with all conveniences. Perfect for our family of five. Being keen cooks we particularly appreciated the well supplied and designed kitchen with Gaggenau appliances. The cookware was good quality (pillivuyt, good thick stainless steel pots, bodum tea pot...). Thank you for a lovely stay Catherine. Highly recommended

The Barn is absolutely beautiful! It looks beautiful in the photos but is even more lovely in reality. The amenities and space is fantastic with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The location could not be better to visit Stow, Bourton, Daylesford Farm etc and it just happens to be across from a pub that serves wonderful food (and won the best pub of 2018). We had our 4 year old daughter with us and my 3 year old niece and they had a blast. The Barn sits on the village green and has a small playground, ducks and plenty of space to run around for little ones. The barn was spacious enough to accommodate their play and Catherine kindly provided toys. Catherine was very friendly, responsive and welcoming. I cannot rate this place highly enough. Stay!

What a wonderful stay in Catherine's beautiful house we all had. We were 4 adults and two children and we all had plenty of room. This is a gem of a property that we instantly felt at home in. The pub next door is outstanding and for us acted more like a hotel restaurant and bar, even providing take away fish and chips on the night we arrived. The beds were supremely comfortable and the house had lots of very nice little touches. Treats in the fridge, high quality shower gel and clean robes for all made it feel more like a stay in a boutique hotel rather than just another home. Thank you Catherine, we'll be back.

Exceptional accommodation! Do not hesitate to book this place! The most stylish self catering and in a beautiful village.... Very very clean and so well equipped. We had small children with us and it feels very safe and cosy. Highly recommended - we will be back!

Isabelle, April 2018

Everything about our stay was perfect, the barn is incredible, the location is perfect. Catherine was a great host, understanding and flexible. I can't wait to go back! The rooms are so sweet, the decor throughout on point. So lovely to have a few starter items left out in the kitchen, it was warm and cosy, clean and tidy. I felt like I was in a 5 star hotel. Thank you and congratulations on a really perfect property

We would highly recommend staying at Catherine's 300 year old barn conversion in the picturesque village of Bledington. The location was perfect for visiting the surrounding towns and villages such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Burford and Bourton-on-the-Water. Catherine was a great host. She has thought of everything and she went out of her way to make sure that our stay was perfect. The barn conversion is an amazing space and is perfect for a peaceful getaway with (or without) the family. We made good use of the kitchen, which was fantastic for cooking up big family meals. We also had dinner at the village pub, which is a must. Thank you Catherine. We hope to return very soon.

Matthew, August 2015

The Village Barn was a gorgeous place to stay. It was spotless, beautifully decorated, cosy and delightfully rustic. Catherine was a warm, friendly host who answered all our emails quickly and efficiently. Bledington is a beautiful English village with a wonderful pub. Don't miss out on Pimm's in the lovely beer garden. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Annie, July 2015

Catherine's place was very nice. Great location, clean and stylish.

Tam, October 2020

We had a wonderful stay in the Village Barn. A beautifully decorated and very cosy home in the countryside with great nearby facilities to eat and drink well! Catherine, the hostess, is on point at all times and made us feel very welcome. Highly recommended.

Martijn, August 2020

This is truly a delightful stay in the most gorgeous and charming farmhouse situated perfectly in midst of one of the most lovely villages of the Cotswolds... The pictures cannot capture all the attention to detail that makes this home so stunning. The farmhouse and gardens are a divine respite and a delight to the senses!!!

Julie, July 2019

This was the best place we have ever stayed. So relaxing, comfortable and prepared. We love the Cotswolds and this place has a special memory for all of us. Thank you!

Tim, May 2019

The perfect country escape if you are with a few people. Great stylish place with lots of lovely touches. Comfortable and cozy. Would highly recommend.

Anna, December 2018

Catherine's place is a gem in the beautiful English countryside. The villa is thoughtfully decorated and decked out with the highest quality kitchen and bathroom appliances - it is designed with comfort and convenience in mind. The villa is a 30-second walk from the charming King's Head Inn, which serves amazing food (especially on burger nights) but back to Catherine, she is a friendly host who always greeted us with a warm smile and plenty of recommendations for things to do around the area. She recommended visiting Daylesford Organic Farm, which is a ten-minute drive from her place and turns out to be an award winning farm/spa/cafe. But back to Catherine again, we noticed that the only thing missing in her beautiful home was a hot tub so we requested to have one brought in. Not only did she bring us a hot tub for our stay, she installed the proper electric work to make sure it is safe to use during rainy days. In conclusion, if you are ever visiting the Cotswolds, stay here! Thanks a million Catherine for the best countryside experience ever!

This is a wonderful place to stay. The Barn is so beautiful - lovely light and huge windows and very tastefully decorated. Catherine is a great host - considerate and communicative. She’s always available, but gives you lots of privacy. The village is completely charming - quiet and gorgeous. And the pub next door is great - good food, lovely gardens, cute chickens. We took our 15 month old son and found it very well suited to babies also - lots of open space for him to safely explore. Couldn’t recommend it enough!

Chido, August 2018

Amazing property and location! I think what you can't tell from the pictures is how big it is. It looks fairly big from the pictures but it's much more spacious. Also the proximity to what has been voted the best pub in the area for 2018, very welcoming staff, amazing food and it's a very short walk but the way it's laid out you wouldn't know it's there and you are not disturbed at all. Underfloor heating and giant windows made for a very bright and comfortable stay.

Serkan, January 2018

This is a very cool barn. It's been refurbished with great taste and feels like a really special boutique hotel. I just wish i could go there every weekend. Catherine was super helpful and welcoming. The location is enviable, right by a pub where you can order breakfast and from the windows you can see nothing but trees yet you are on the edge of a quaint village. Can't say enough good things...

Tonia, February 2016

Catherine has created a very magical place to stay. The Barn is stunning and my husband and I plus our 3 year old boy and 10 year old girl loved every minute. Catherine sent us a welcome pack in advance, exchanged regular text messages and we were greeted by her charming son on arrival. The interior and location is even more beautiful than it looks on line. Everything you could want is there with lovely linen, a fabulous kitchen and dining area, wonderful bathrooms and outside space to sit and enjoy the sunshine. The location is great. The pub next door over looks the village green and serves very good food in both the restaurant or more informal bar area. Great service and a good wine list. We got the train from Kingham which is just a few miles away into Oxford for a relaxed day trip and had a brilliant breakfast at Daylesford Farm close by. We are really looking forward to a return visit and will recommend the Barn to all our friends. Thank you!

Kate, July 2015

Thank you for a fantastic weekend at your lovely accommodation. The barn is wonderful and exactly as described and does not disappoint. Location is great, within throwing distance of a nice pub and a short drive to Daylesford which is lovely. Would recommend to others and stay again
