Large self-catering holiday house in the Painswick Valley
Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Barncastle, Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, sleeps 4 - 10 in 5 bedrooms.
Welcome to Barncastle, a large, recently converted Cotswold stone barn nestling in the beautiful Painswick valley. Once a home to farm animals, farm implements and a dairy farm belonging to my parents.
Barncastle was converted in 2007 and has become a property of outstanding elegance and beauty and much loved by the guests who come to stay for a holiday.
Barncastle has a five-star Gold ETC rating and recently won Silver in the Cotswold Tourism Awards for 2013. Barncastle has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and will sleep 10 comfortably. This beautiful self-catering barn conversion has a well-appointed, fully-fitted kitchen. A pleasure to cook in, there is a traditional stone floor and large American-style fridge, range cooker and dishwasher. The dining hall, with its oak flooring and a large Cotswold stone Inglenook fireplace allows everyone to eat together in this wonderful setting.
Perfect for family and friend get-togethers, the five bedrooms include two king-size bedrooms one with en-suite, which includes a claw-foot bath. There are also another two doubles, and one twin room which can be joined to make a king size bed. Four bathrooms in total.
Set in a wonderful rural setting on the edge of the Cotswolds, Barncastle is easily accessible being close to the M5, while still offering a superb five-star family house in which to explore the area.
This gorgeous holiday home is close to the lovely Cotswolds as well as the towns of Painswick and Stroud and within a short distance of nearby historic Gloucester, with its historic docklands and beautiful Cathedral. Regency Cheltenham is a short drive with its many restaurants, theatres, literature and music festivals, shopping, Gloucester rugby and Cheltenham Racecourse.
