    A lovely warm welcome from Sonya as we arrived and a very nice welcome pack. The Barn was immaculate and very well equipped with lots of space, an enormous bedroom with a very comfy bed, huge shower with endless hot water. Everything you could need in the kitchen, beautiful views from the dining room table and comfy sofas to sit on. It was also very peaceful and we saw lots of wildlife, hares, deer and loads of birdlife. We will definately be back.

    Hook Norton Barn was towards the top (if not at the top) of the tree. We literally could not fault it in any way. It was private, peaceful, spotlessly clean, comfortable and well supplied.

    The barn is so comfortable and very well equipped. It is in such a quiet, peaceful and beautiful location with exceptional views across the countryside which makes it very easy to while away the hours relaxing and watching the wildlife. We saw rabbits, hares, pheasants, a deer, buzzards, kestrels and lots of smaller birds including yellowhammers all from the comfort of the lovely patio area. Despite it being in such a secluded area, the barn is not far from anywhere which also makes it a convenient place to stay to explore the Cotswolds and surrounding area. Sonya and Dean are great hosts, very welcoming and even left a bottle of prosecco and a card for my birthday which was a lovely thought! Hook Norton is a lovely village with a traditional brewery and visitors centre and a very well stocked village shop. We look forward to returning!

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hook Norton Barn."

    The barn has been renovated to a very high standard and the owners have obviously put a great deal of thought into providing everything that's needed for a great holiday - The welcome bag was especially appreciated! The barn is in an ideal location for exploring some great places and was very warm and comfortable to return to in the evenings. We enjoyed the quiet location and loved watching the local wildlife which included Roe deer, rabbits and a variety of birds. The firework display in Hook Norton was an added bonus.

  • "We have just spent a week at Hook Norton Barn, which is situated in a very quiet rural location, just a mile outside the village of Hook Norton."

    We arrived to be greeted by Sonya, the owner, who showed us around and left us with a rather nice ‘welcome pack’ of goodies, some of which were cooling in the fridge! The barn conversion, which was only completed a few months ago, is superbly done, a lot of thought has gone into the conversion and furnishing. It really is a quality property and had everything we needed, in a really nice rural location, ideally situated for exploring the area. Hooks Barn was perfect for the two of us to visit numerous places within easy reach, then return and just chill out and sit on the patio with the birds singing away. The property is so comfortable we immediately felt ‘at home’ so we tended to eat out during the day and just relax in the evening and enjoy the peace and quiet, simply brilliant!
