“We spent three nights in Danvers Barn, which we picked based on the pictures which also showed that it had a private seating area.”
Our break was to spend the majority of the time, relaxing in and around the accommodation. With regards to the accommodation, it had everything that you could possible want for a short break.

Our break was to spend the majority of the time, relaxing in and around the accommodation. With regards to the accommodation, it had everything that you could possible want for a short break. It was extremely clean, modern and comfortable. What we could not of known from the pictures was the proximity of quite a busy road next to the Barn and in particular the seating area. Unfortunately this did spoil what would have been an idyllic spot. There is only one gravel driveway which runs past the front of the Barn and the private seating area leading to the Owners property. Every morning from around 6am we were disturbed by vehicles leaving the Owners property and throughout the day visitors passing through. It would have influenced our decision to choose this location had we of known, particularly as we were looking for a more private break. This is not to say that we did not have a wonderful time. The Owners were very friendly and accommodating. We were pleasantly surprised to be greeted by a bottle of Prosecco and home made cake, which was delicious. And the views are wonderful. This location is ideal for anyone wanting an excellent base if you are exploring the Cotswolds.
Mr and Mrs Keeling visited us from Monday to Thursday. I'm afraid that harvest time in the countryside does bring early morning starts - which will very soon be over. I am sorry that the week day traffic on the road disturbed them in the garden and I wish they had mentioned it to us at the time. We would have suggested a wander up the road with our picnic blanket to Broughton Park - the most peaceful and beautiful setting for hours of quiet relaxation. I thank them for their kind words about the Barn itself. We are new owners and all feed back is welcome so that we can iron out any problems - Sykes owner relations
