“Highly recommend for families”
Reviewed September 12, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed at the barn with our two young boys while visiting for a friend's wedding. The barn is beautiful, exactly as shown in the pictures. Jane gave us a lovely welcome and was most helpful with local knowledge of parks for children. Both Jne and Richard were also on hand to answer questions when needed. The backyard is an explorers paradise for kids. We wish we could have spent more time there. The village is an easy walk awaywith some great pub meals to be had. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you Jane and Richard.

“Perfect location and wonderful garden”
Reviewed July 6, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This was such a find for a place to stay. It was our family's first trip to the United Kingdom and to Bristol. The location was perfect for visiting the major sites in Bristol, access to the train station/bus and wonderful food options -- both restaurants and grocery stores. The garden attached to the location was wonderful. It was a little piece of paradise at the end of the day. We had lots of information included about Bristol and the surrounding area, suggestion on places to eat, visit and maps of the city. If we ever come back, we'll be back at the Old Barn too.

“Beautiful cottage”
Reviewed December 9, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

A lovely cottage in a beautiful tranquil setting, yet very close to all local amenities and easy to get into the centre of Bristol. The property has been converted very sympathetically but has all mod cons and was very cosy. Jane and Richard are lovely hosts and looked after us very well.

“Fantastic self catering accomodation”
Reviewed October 12, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A welcome cake, beautiful barn with lovely thick walls, a dream stay. Wonderfully helpful hosts in an idyllic village. A great garden for the kids to enjoy. Second to none.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The Old Barn at Trymwood is a charming place to stay. The accomodation is not large but accomodates 4 adults comfortably. The place has all amenities, dishwasher, washing machine, oven, microwave, and all in excellent condition. The place was very clean. Nice flat screen TV included. Then there's the garden...magnificent...nurtured with love. Richard and Jane Pedlar, the owners, are a charming couple...there when you need them but absolutely never intruding...just right. The village itself, Westbury-on-Trym is also charming. There are good places to eat...Grupo Lounge has great food...and then there's Tesco for your daily needs. We chose Westbury-on-Trym to visit the Cotswolds, drove into Wales and visited Weston-Super-Mare. Memorable.

“An Oasis in the heart of the City.”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

A beautifully renovated period cottage which is only slightly out done by the enormous garden; a horticultural masterpiece and wonderful for children to explore. Both Garden and property are a true credit to the owners who are generous and kind, the cottage was cool and cozy and a welcome from the unusually hot English summer. With its open fireplace this would also make an ideal winter retreat.

We shall be back - however prefer to keep this cottage our secret.
