Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Barrel Store, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, Cotswolds, sleeps 2-26 in 14 bedrooms.

Part of the original Cirencester Brewery, the Cotswold stone Barrel Store has been beautifully and creatively transformed into up to date accommodation; it is light and in deference to its owner, New Brewery Arts next door, has crafted touches through. Though simple, this accommodation has style and flair and has been built to meet Passivhaus standards.

Located in the centre of Cirencester, The Barrel Store is close to all the shopping, eating and heritage amenities offered by this beautiful and historic market town. It also offers the perfect central location from which to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty by car, cycle or walking. Or why not book a craft workshop for you and a few friends at New Brewery Arts and make a weekend of it and come back with a new skill, or something you've made?

We are in the heart of the Cotswolds and are happy to host cycling groups, hen parties, stag parties, groups of friends, family reunions, walking groups and more, for exclusive or shared hire.

The Cotswolds has an enormous amount on offer. If you love heritage, there is an abundance of wonderful stately homes and manor houses and churches to visit nearby; if it's an activity holiday you'd prefer, Cotswold Water Park is right around the corner with water skiing, sailing and a beach. If you love cycling and walking, the Monarch's Way runs past Cirencester, with Roman sites at Chedworth and Great Witcombe and cycle paths all over the Cotswolds.

The Barrel Store can be booked for various sized groups, either taking a whole floor or wing, or exclusive use of the whole building. Please contact us with any special requests. We can sleep 43 people but groups may prefer to sleep 26 across the 14 rooms, to allow for easier dining.

Although we do not provide catering ourselves, we can provide you with contact details of outsider caterers if required; please ask us.
