We felt very lucky to have found Barncastle to rent. It is situated In an idyllic location with sweeping views of the gentle Cotswold countryside. It has a warm, spacious layout that easily accommodates large groups. The owner, Valerie, welcomed us as if we were family, and Barncastle had the feel of a well-equipped, fully functioning home. We felt that the rental was excellent value for money and, perhaps because of this, it was necessary to book well in advance.
Our party of 9 adults and two children used both Barncastle and Barncottage. The space, comfort and quality and quantity of the facilities are all 5 star. Plenty of different spaces to loose oneself if desired. Painswick, Stroud, Gloucester are nearby and the whole of the beautiful Cotswolds are also within easy reach. Location is quiet with outstanding views across the lovely Painswick valley. Val King the owner replies to all queries efficiently by return. We all liked everything, have no criticisms whatsoever and our only regret is that we could not stay longer.

I have stayed here about 3 times now with my family. Great setting and walks. Short distance from swimming pool, supermarket and main town. Facilities are amazing and they have catered for everyone. Thoroughly recommend!!!
We are greeted like family when we arrive, nothing is too much trouble. The property is spacious but inclusive. We had 3 generations together and the space was perfect for everyone. The list of other services we could purchase, alternative therapies, or meals cooked are really novel. We were close to Gloucester and Stroud and Colesbourne snowdrops were spectacular. Feel nervous reviewing such a gem as it may get so popular we wont be able to book out next visit!
This was our fourth year staying here for a week with all the family. It's like walking into someone's home - everything you could possibly want is provided. Fabulously high quality furnishings and kitchen equipment, exceptionally clean and the owner has become a firm friend, popping in for a chat. There are great walks in practically every direction and a lovely view over the green hills of Gloucestershire. There's a cottage too so we rent that also now that the family's getting even bigger. I can't recommend this accommodation highly enough. Book with confidence.
