    “We had a great time at Hay Barn Cottage.”

    ..lovely accommodation amidst beautiful scenery...very restful. ...

    ..lovely accommodation amidst beautiful scenery...very restful. Wonderful walks without having to use the car with a fascinating Roman villa over the fence! Jennie is a very helpful owner and did everything she could to keep us Covid-safe and told us about good local walks. Being there in the Autumn, we were able to enjoy apples from trees in the garden and appreciate the beautiful colours of the leaves in the adjacent beech woods. The cottage is close to Cheltenham and Gloucester. We very much recommend a visit to the nearby Cotswold town of Painswick and the village of Sheepscombe.

The property

Hay Barn Cottage is a beautiful cottage, on the grounds of the owner's farm in the Cotswolds AONB, in a breath-taking spot, surrounded by open fields and woodland, offering fantastic views across the valley to the surrounding hills and the village of Witcombe below, while being within a 10-minute drive to Cheltenham a 15-minute drive of Painswick.

On a clear day you can even see the Welsh Mountains to the west.

The cottage is well over 200 years old and is steeped in history, with many of the old features still on display, like stone walls and oak beams, giving the house a truly unique and charming feel.

Enter the property to find a well-equipped kitchen, complete with all the appliances you need to create delicious home-cooked meals, which can be enjoyed at the breakfast bar or at the dining table.

Delicious homemade meals can be pre ordered for delivery to your fridge/freezer from a local catering friend of the owner, and catered dinner parties available by arrangement to help mark those special occasions.

Please request information from the owner.

Once dinner is over, relax on one of the sofas in the sitting room, while enjoying a book from the bookcase or your favourite shows on the TV.

When it's time to get some sleep, head upstairs to find three bright and spacious bedrooms, each with Velux windows showcasing lovely countryside views, character wooden beams and ample storage space for your belongings.

Choose from a king-size double, which can be transformed into a twin on request, a stunning four-poster double with handy en-suite basin and WC, and a twin, served by the family bathroom, which offers a bath and handheld shower, while downstairs there is a shower room, for added convenience.

Outside there is a private patio garden with furniture and a barbecue, perfect for taking advantage of the good weather and dining alfresco, while the adjacent fields offer peace and quiet as well as the chance to discover local wildlife.
