  • "The only negative point is that the bedroom and front door blinds were dirty with dead insects stuck on the blinds."

    The cottage was lovely, very well equipped and the surroundings were incredible, our dogs had the best time ever, mesmerised by the horses and playing with the owners dogs.

    Thank you for feedback. We are sorry to hear of the issues that you encountered during your stay and hope that this did not leave a lasting impact on your retreat. We hope to welcome you back to Tallet Barn one day in the future. Property Owner

  • "My wife and I had a lovely time at Tallet barn and were very fortunate with the weather which allowed us to enjoy the large patio with fine views over the property and the valley beyond."

    It was a pleasure to stay somewhere with plenty of space and easy parking and the regular welcome party of friendly dogs (especially from the famous Onion!). The cottage it's self was very clean, well equipped (although some kitchen utensils were not of the best quality) and comfortable, with the exception of the bed which needs a new mattress as it had roll together and gave us both back ache). The owners were friendly and on site if needed and access was easy. Altogether a very pleasant stay and would recommend to anyone wanting to be right in the heart of the Cotswolds but in a quiet location with plenty of space.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your recent stay at Tallet Barn. It's lovely to hear how much you enjoyed you stay at the barn. I will advise the owner to have a look at the kitchen utensils, so thank you for this point. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

  • "It was probably due to Covid safety, but we were expecting some info on local walks, places to eat,etc."

    What was there was safely presented but limited. Cottage had good sized rooms, immediate surroundings were really nice.

    Thank you for your feedback. You're quite right - lot's of the things we expect to see in the holiday cottages have been removed due to COVID-19. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and had the chance to explore the surrounding area. We look forward to welcoming you back to Tallet Barn in the future! Property Owner

  • "Beautiful location with extremely friendly owner."

    The views and set up are just perfect for a relaxing break. Far enough away from civilisation but close enough to access some stunning villages. Amazing walks for doggies and owners right on the doorstep. We managed to get to eat out twice and although cold....Covid 19 restrictions....it was worth it!. We will definitely be back to stay if Robert and the dogs will have us!!!

    We would love for you to come back and stay with us in the future! Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed staying at the Tallet Barn very much!"

    It was well located on the outskirt of Burton-on-Water surronded by so many natural walks, all of which were managable for my 6 year old son. There's plenty to do on the farm as well, my son loved playing with the owner's dogs and he went to stay hello to the horses every morning. The cottage has everything that we needed, it bathroom is so spacious and it was so wonderful to have such a nice bath espically after a muddly trekking day in the field. Overall we couldn't be more happier and wished to have stayed longer.

    Many thanks for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and hope to be able to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

  • "Tallet Barn and the surrounding area are beautiful and so well maintained."

    As soon as you walk into the barn you feel at home. We really needed a weeks chill and sat outside overlooking the grounds and taking in the fantastic view was exactly what we needed. Can I mention the 5 wonderful dogs especially Onion who greets you like a long lost friend. The owners are friendly and around if you require anything. The negatives. There aren’t any. It’s a gem of a place and one we look forward to staying at again

    Set in the grounds of a large estate with plenty of room between buildings. The owners are on hand to help with any queries or requests but also offer enough privacy to enjoy your stay. The arrival instructions and extra cleaning protocols that have been implemented are second to none.

    We really appreciate your feedback and are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Tallet Barn Property Owner

  • "Lovely weekend, very welcoming to our puppy."

    There were 6 dogs free range in the farm which scared our puppy at first but she made friends with them soon enough! The kitchen was really well-equipped for self-catering and milk/tea/coffee facilities were provided which was a nice touch. There was also hand sanitiser available before entering the farm and next to the sinks. The bed was very comfortable and it was a nice change having baths rather than standing showers. The outdoor sitting area was lovely to have breakfast in the sunshine. The only quip was that one day we drove back and the side door was open with a guy doing an annual service check we think on the electricity? It would have been nice to have a heads up of that visit via text or something. We really enjoyed our stay nonetheless, great location and short drive from lovely towns Bourton-on-the-water, the slaughters, stow-on-wold etc

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at the barn. Its lovely to hear you and your puppy enjoyed themselves. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

  • "The barn was a lovely place to stay and relax."

    The photographs on the site do not do it justice. The views from the outside seating area are just wonderful and the grounds are also beautiful and maintained to a high standard. The owners live on site and are lovely, as are their little pack of dogs, especially cheeky Onion. The barn is a 10-15 minute walk to the lovely village of Bourton on the Water. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would not hesitate to recommend.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback with regards to Tallet Barn. It's always lovely to hear how much guests have enjoyed staying at the barns and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

    I only slightly under scored facilities as there is no stand alone shower, my husband is a shower person but I loved the big beautiful roll top bath. I loved meeting the horses on the farm, they are very friendly. On our first night the sun was shining, we sat on the patio and just enjoyed the beauty of our surroundings. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again.

    The accommodation was just beautiful and cosy with everything we wanted and more. As it was Christmas Rob had gone out of his way to provide us with an array of Christmas treats as well as the cottage being decorated for the festivities. The facilities at the cottage were excellent with everything you need in the kitchen and plenty of nice clean crockery. the lovely comfy bed and lounge were just perfect and we enjoyed the use of a soak in the bath as a special treat from simply just showering daily. The location of the cottage is just great being able to walk straight from the door across miles of the lovely Cotswold countryside with the dog and visiting the villages and pubs scattered around. All in all a lovely place to stay with a nice host who lets you get on with no bother allowing you share their wonderful surroundings. A big thankyou.

About the location


Stow-on-the-Wold 4 miles; Moreton-in-Marsh 8 miles; Chipping Norton 13 miles; Cheltenham 15.5 miles.

Located in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the historic village of Bourton-on-the-Water dates back to Neolithic times with over 100 buildings being Grade II listed or higher. The picturesque high street nestles alongside the River Windrush over which several low stone bridges span, which is why Bourton-on-the-Water is known as the Venice in the Cotswolds. Tradition states that an annual football match is played in the summer, in the River Windrush with the banks lined with spectators, with the aim to score as many goals as possible and get as wet as possible! The village has an eclectic range of visitor attractions, including The Model Village, Cotswold Motor Museum, Birdland Park and Gardens as well as a Dragonfly Maze, monthly farmers’ market as well as many tea rooms, an artisan bakery, antiques and craft markets, traditional sweet shop, cycle hire and its very own perfumery. Nearby, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises traditional England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly farmers' market. The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antiques shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Also take a visit to the medieval town of Burford for a great day out where you can enjoy a trip to the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are both within easy reach and make a great day out. The spa town of Cheltenham is, architecturally, the most complete Regency town in England with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called The City of Dreaming Spires has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also all within easy reach.
