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.

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.
