“Peace & Tranquillity at its finest”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Monks Mill Barn is exceptional throughout, a beautifully finished barn within peaceful surroundings, with the odd sheep here and there! If you want to trek up to Bourton on the Water to visit the Motor Museum or travel to Bath to see the Roman Baths, the location of the barn is ideal as a base location for venturing out. Definitely recommend

“Perfect holiday cottage. Beautiful, clean, excellent location.”
Reviewed October 17, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed here after our wedding and were blown away by how wonderful the barn is.
The location is perfect, tucked away in a beautiful valley with only sheep for company.
The barn has been decorated to a very high standard. It is immaculate and very light and airy.
It was a super relaxing stay and I look forward to booking again.

“Peaceful Getaway”
Reviewed April 27, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We just enjoyed an amazing stay at Monks Mill Barn. When we arrived there was a welcome basket supplied by the local farm shop. Fresh bread, eggs, milk etc. A very nice treat after our long travel day. Booking was easy and we received emails before our stay so that we could start planning our actives before we arrived.

The furnishings are top notch, and, very comfortable. Nice big rooms and comfortable beds….and an awesome shower! There are lots of public footpaths around and some sheep nearby to keep you entertained. We really enjoyed spending hours walking and enjoying the beautiful countryside.

We can’t wait to book another stay at Monks Mill Barn.

“Beautiful haven surrounded by sheep”
Reviewed April 26, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were very lucky to have beautiful weather and to stay in spring when we could really enjoy the antics of the lambs, but I'm sure this property is great at any time of the year (except perhaps deepest winter). The barn conversion has been very tastefully done and very well appointed, except for the fact that there weren't really enough crockery and utensils for those who wanted to eat all their meals at home. The property was very warm and a delight to come back to after a day's sightseeing. There are many places to visit within about 20 miles - Bath, Tewksbury, Newark Park, Berkeley Castle, Woodchester Mansion, and lots more. We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days and saw a different part of the Cotswolds from the one more usually visited.

“Out of this world”
Reviewed March 10, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

What a find. The barn has been converted and finished to a fabulously high standard.
Set in a valley with sheet around, yet only a couple of miles from Wotton Under Edge, this gives you the best of both worlds.
Two equally sized large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms with bath and shower. There is also a shower room downstairs.
On arrival there was a welcome arrival pack with items from the Farm Shop in Wotton.
We enjoyed a few miles at The Fleece Inn, Hillesly which is a community owned pub no more than two miles from the barn.

We have just returned from a week's stay at Monks Mill Barn and can't wait to return. The barn is superbly appointed with quality furnishing and a lovely outlook. We were delighted to receive a generous welcome hamper of local produce which we enjoyed very much.

This property is in a great location for touring, with Lacock Abbey and village and Castle Coombe, both of which are used for filming period dramas, being nearby and well worth a visit. We also visited Bath, Cheltenham, Westonbirt Arboretum and Hidcote Manor Garden and there were so many other places we wanted to visit but ran out of time. The barn is a lovely relaxing place to return to after a day out and the owners really have thought of everything. Whilst the property is secluded it is not isolated, and there is a footpath very close, also the Cotswold Way.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Monks Mill Barn, it is one of the best self catering properties we have stayed in.
