“Excellent accommodation in a great location.”
Reviewed February 10, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We stayed here in February 2017 and thought that the barn was absolutely fantastic, with everything that you need to make your stay that bit special. There was a great log burner and under floor heating in the front room which was a great surprise. The bedrooms each have an en suite which was also great as there were 2 couples staying for the weekend. I cannot praise the accommodation enough.
About 10 mins walk away there is a pub called the Snowshill Arms which is very welcoming and sells good pub grub. Whilst in the Cotswold we visit several of the villages with ease due to the great location of the barn.
I would recommend Sheepscombe Byre to friends and family, and you, if you are reading this review.

“Lovely cosy property in a great setting”
Reviewed November 9, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This is a lovely property located on the edge of Snowshill, which is a picture-perfect Cotswolds village. Our party consisted of two couples and we choose this property as we wanted two ensuite rooms and parking for two cars.
The cottage is nicely decorated and well-equipped. Both bedrooms are a good size with king-sized beds; the master bedroom is particularly roomy. Downstairs is open plan with spectacular views across the valley. There is also a downstairs WC. The weekend we stayed here was quite chilly but the under-floor heating meant that we were warm and toasty throughout our stay. There is a wood-burner, but we didn't need to light it, despite the cold weather.
The surrounding area is also very pretty; the nearby village of Broadway is definitely worth a visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We had a great stay here! The cottage is really comfortable and the beds are good. Only upstairs the bathrooms are a bit small. The views are spectacular!
Nice surroundings, we've done a lot of walking!
The owners are also very helpfull.
We will certainly come back in The Cotswolds!

Comfortable accommodation with everything we needed provided. Incredible views and peaceful surroundings. Charming owners. Nothing was too much trouble Within easy reach of Stratford, Broadway, Bourton on the Water, Stow on the Wold etc. Good bus service from Broadway if necessary. Home from home. A delightful week.

“Cosy little cottage in the Cotswolds”
Reviewed January 17, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed in the Byre during the first few days of the cold snap in January and found the cottage a perfect little retreat. It was really warm and cosy, - particularly when we had the wood burning stove going and helped by the underfloor heating downstairs!

The cottage is in a really peaceful spot. It is also really well equipped, comfortable and well maintained. The kitchen was great for cooking in.

The owners were very kind and helpful during our stay.

Snowshill itself is a lovely village and great point for exploring the Cotswolds itself.

“The perfect self catering experience in the beautiful Cotswolds.”
Reviewed November 1, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

people found this review helpful

Wow! This is an immaculate cottage. Everything is of the very best quality and the cottage combines style with the cosines you hope to see in country accommodation. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the property is extremely well equipped. The parking is conveniently next to the cottage making packing and unpacking very easy. Snow shill is an exquisite village but this property is a little outside the main streets off a tiny country lane giving you just that bit more privacy without isolation. The views from the bedroom windows, living room windows and decking are lovely. All the Cotswold highlights are within easy reach

Not surprised there is so much repeat business ! If you are looking for superb accommodation in a truly beautiful area of the country then look no further.
