  • "Great property in a quiet area and a good base to explore the Cotswolds; Stratford-upon-Avon; and Bicester."

    Felt very welcome right from the start with fresh eggs and flowers waiting for us. Dark skies in this area meant we could see Saturn's rings from our telescope on a clear night.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide us with such lovely feedback on your stay at Top Barn. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your time away and we hope that we can welcome you again one day in the future. Best wishes, Manor Cottages. Property Owner

  • "Lovely property!"

    We had a great stay! Well equipped cottage with a great kitchen/lounge on the top floor overlooking fields. Comfortable beds, excellent water pressure so no disappointing showers (!) and a kitchen that had everything we needed. No super local shops but there were large supermarkets a drive away.

    It was so cosy, warm and clean. Everything that we needed was provided. Wonderful position for exploring, although remote and so quiet. The owners were very warm and welcoming. A vase of flowers greeted us, and the next day some slices of homemade cake. We will certainly return next year. Absolutely loved it, had a fantastic holiday.

  • "Lovely cottage at the end of a long driveway."

    Has a private patio leading from the downstairs bedroom, well equipped with 4 chairs, folding table and a parasol. Only the cool wind stopped us from enjoying an outdoor breakfast, but we were joined by friends for a socially distanced get together and were outside for 5hrs, following the sun around onto the grassed area beyond the patio. Also enjoyed seeing a fox, hares and for longer periods Red Kites which came very close to the property. The open plan living room, dining area and kitchen are on the 1st floor to make the most of the beautiful views. Very comfortable living room, well equipped kitchen, large dining table. The double and twin bedrooms, along with the bathroom are on the ground floor. Large shower and bath so have the option of a refreshing shower or a relaxing soak after a full day walking or enjoying the surrounding countryside and villages. Due to Covid restrictions we chose not to dine out in the evenings but there are some local pubs that look nice. We picked up keys from owner Karen at her property and she took us down to the property and waited outside whilst we had a look around so if we had any immediate queries she could answer them. We had no issues during our stay, but were confident that Karen was available if needed. We only stayed 3 nights this time but hope to return for longer soon. We couldn't fault this lovely cottage or the area it is in.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback on Top Barn, the owner will be delighted to read them and we all would love to welcome you back in the near future. Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Top Barn is a great place to stay."

    We loved everything about it, including the 'upside down' layout and the views of the surrounding countryside. It is very nicely furnished and well equipped, especially the kitchen. The outside patio area is perfect for breakfast and evening dining. John and Karen were excellent hosts and the welcome cakes went down a treat, Excellent location, quiet and peaceful.

  • "Wonderful house in a beautiful location."

    Owners are really helpful and kind. Thank you for the fairy cakes when we arrived. It was also great to have basic staples like salt, pepper, tea, coffee, dishwasher tablets, washing machine liquid provided. Perfect. There are not many places we've stayed that you can watch hares from your patio or lounge! Magical. Incredible variety of birds too - never seen a yellowhammer or a brambling before. We had to look them up - wifi worked perfectly. Sitting outside and watching red kites, buzzards, a special treat. Great little walk / cycle to The Norman Knight. Wyatt's Farm Shop is worth a visit too, and the Spar in Hook Norton is brilliant (not something I ever thought I'd say!). Great selection of vegetables, fruit and herbs. If they don't have it, I don't think you really need it. Thank you for a superb holiday.
