    So cosy and the hot tub is super after a days walking. We love the Arboretum and hope to visit again later in the year, fortunately we know a great place to stay. Nice local pubs and lots to do without driving too far.

  • "The Hayloft was just perfect for our weekend away."

    Exceptionally clean, with top quality finishes throughout; Le Cruset cookware and tableware, buttery soft bedlinen and plump duck down bedding. Lovely private patio to enjoy the hot tub and evening sun. Icing on the cake was the use of the owners own garden and gazebo and meeting their dogs and donkeys. Turns out Karl and I grew up minutes away from each other- small world! Make your booking at The Hayloft, you won't be disappointed

  • "Wonderful luxury cottage, had a lovely week, plenty of gorgeous Cotswold villages/ town to visit."

    Log burner was a must as it was a really cold week, plenty of logs (great log store outside for us to help ourselves) We ate in almost every night, lots of nice Le Creuset pans and oven wear to use. Used the hot tub a lot, was impressed by the built in Bluetooth speaker. Would definitely recommend.

  • "A beautifully renovated and decorated cottage."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our only suggestion would be some non stick pans and a few more tea towels and maybe a little welcome pack of basics such as milk and bread etc as the nearest shops are some distance. We had a great time.

    Thankyou for staying with us,and for leaving us your feedback. We trialled ‘welcome packs’ at various points over the last 18months.However, we found that due to customers individual preferences,allergies and intolerances much was going to waste. We do provide unlimited nespresso pods, tea bags sugar and milk sticks so that our customers can make a hot drink after their journey. Property Owner

  • "The Hayloft is a no expense spared, couples holiday let for touring the southern Cotswolds."

    Literally on the doorstep of Westonbirt National Arboretum, a few minutes from Highgrove/Tetbury. It is stunning in every respect. The only downside comfort wise is the restricted headroom around the king size bed up in the roof space; it involves a bit of bending to get around. Otherwise it has everything necessary for a very relaxing break and is highly recommended.

    Local town 6 minute drive which was fab for cafes and restaurants. It would be good to suggests other guest be mindful of parking. Check out 10am is a little early.

    The character of the building has been maintained and cleverly brought up to date. We are from a farming background and can clearly visualise the nature of the property pre conversion . Everything was perfect from start to finish . Wonderful location . Our only regret is that we hadn’t booked a longer stay . Highly recommended .

  • "The Hayloft was amazing!"

    I can’t recommend highly enough. Everything was perfect! The property was tastefully decorated throughout and had everything you’d need. The Japanese bath was a particular highlight, as was the two person hot tub. Lots of places to visit nearby including Westonbirt Arboretum (directly opposite), Tetbury, Stow-on-the-Wold, Castle Combe, Bourton-on-the-Water, Arlington Row and Cirencester. Also got to WWT Slimbridge, a wetland wildlife reserve. There were lots of nice restaurants to eat out. Lola and Co tapas in Tebury was fantastic! As was Amalfi in Nailsworth. The owners were lovely. Make sure to go say hi to the donkeys and chickens that live in the grounds. The donkeys are super friendly and couldn’t get enough of the carrots and ginger biscuits. Would’ve loved to have stayed longer!

    Thankyou so much for leaving us such lovely comments. We are so fortunate to be in a beautiful part of the Cotswolds with loads to do just on the doorstep, we are so glad you managed to see so much of it during your stay. Lola and Co is one of our favourite places to eat! We look forward to welcoming you back in the future xxx Property Owner

    A little height restricted in places upstairs but nothing you don’t get used to. The hot tub is a real welcome addition, especially after a days walking and the electric car charger a real bonus. The Arboretum is well worth a visit, and must be spectacular in the autumn, in fact we’d definitely book here again and are thinking about doing later in the year. A lovely property.

    It’s modern, beautiful and homely! Amazing attention and high spec facilities. Emma and Karl (owners) were so accommodating. The Hayloft is located on their property but they made us most welcome, invited us into their ground to meet all their furry friends! They gave us fresh eggs from their chickens, petted their retired donkeys and we met their 9 day old orphan lamb (great touch for easter break!) We can’t recommend enough! Only downside is that we didn’t book for longer. Emma and Karl, thank you again. We hope to see you in the future.

    Thankyou for leaving such positive feedback Alice. We look forward to seeing you both again.

    Tucked away offering complete privacy. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and everything is of the highest standard. Comfortable cosy bed and an immaculate bathroom with a very powerful large shower cubicle and luxury bath, with fluffy white towels. The underfloor heating throughout is lovely and very welcoming.

    To say it was as good as the pictures doesn’t even do this place justice. It’s the most beautiful place, clean and so comfy it truly felt like a home away from home, we even said to eachother that we would happily live there it was that good! We’ve already recommended over 5 people to come here and will definitely come back. Emma was an absolutely delight, my partner saw both Emma and her husband and said how welcoming and lovely they were, and I stayed in touch with her over our stay and we didn’t feel like nuisance at all, ever. The hot tub was unreal morning and night and they have all the stuff you could need here. The ambient lighting is nothing short of a delight as people in their twenties it was so modern but so cosy! Honestly could not recommend this stay and if not the adjoining barn just for how good our stay was! X
