This Barn conversion is near the village of Broadway . It is not far from other places in the Cotswolds.
The accommodation is great for families or couples as we were .
A real bonus is the conservatory as when not good weather still felt you were outside which few cottages offer .
It is well equipped and plenty of towels and t towels.
We even enjoyed a log fire on a couple of evenings .
Can really recommmend this rental .
Would definitely come again .
Quiet location, walkable to the nearest pretty village of Broadway. Excellent facilities. Good clean comfortable accommodation.
This old converted barn is in a great location, a few mins drive from the lovely broadway village, in a nice quiet location down a private road. The building has its own private large garden, and overlooks a shared courtyard with other barns.
The building is nice and large, lots of space, provides most kitchen essentials and plenty of them.
For us we felt like the building needed a bit of TLC and those finishing touches however.
On arrival, other than a A4 sheet of paper with a small amount of information on, there was no welcome book, no information on surrounding area/restaurants which I found to be very unusual.
The front door doesn't stay shut unless you lock it, the ensuite bathroom door doesn't shut properly or lock. The towels provided are so small in master room, they didn't even wrap around head!
The heating doesn't have a thermostat, it's either on or off, and on a cold feb week you need it on, but not always as high. The kitchen needs a deep clean.
We were quite surprised that there wasn't any hand wash in the bathrooms;no logs provided for the fire, or even a welcome box on arrival which seems to be standard in other locations we've stayed at especially as arriving on a Sunday and the shops were closed.
For the price of the barn we did expect those little small details to be right as for us they can make your stay.
However, the building could be a great place to stay, it is nice and spacious with 4 bedrooms, and in the summer the garden would be lovely to sit out in.
Close to the lovely Cotswold village of Broadway, we spent 2 weeks here over Christmas-New Year. The house was spacious, with comfortable living room (complete with fireplace), large well-appointed kitchen, and a cosy sunroom. There was even a large Christmas tree, and a Christmas basket with lots of goodies. Perfect for catering for a large family Christmas. The large garden is perfect for a game of boules or touch footy, and there is space for several cars. This was also an excellent base for sightseeing, as there are lots of lovely villages nearby - Chipping Camden, Bourton on the Water, Lower Slaughter, Stow-on the-Wold.
Our hosts were quick to respond when we had a minor problem with the dishwasher. We would definitely stay here again.
Old Sheepcote was a great base for our three days in the Cotswolds. There were 6 of us
(3 couples). The property was very comfortable and spacious, close to town. We travel each day and really enjoyed coming back at night as we felt very much at home. We really enjoy our stay and would recommend "Old Sheepcote" as a place to stay.
