“Lovely barn conversion in a gorgeous location”
Reviewed 23 October 2011

Stayed with a group of friends for a uni reunion weekend - the barn fitted all 8 of us very comfortably, with 2 rooms and bathroom on the ground, and 2 rooms with en suite upstairs. Well decorated and equipped with tv, DVD, free view, games and books. Kitchen also nicely equipped with all necessary equipment plus a dishwasher. Owners were lovely and left us a cake plus plenty of tea and coffee etc. Lovely setting with chickens and a peacock that roam the grounds - plenty of space for 3-4 cars, and only 10 miles from Cheltenham spa if you fancy a change of scene. Would definitely stay again, fantastic place for the weekend. Only recommendation would be that the owners invest in wireless Internet.

The barn was OK but not 5 star as advertised.

Great location.

Beware of chicken and peacock droppings! No internet.

I attended Southwold Barn for my hen weekend. We were greeted by the resident peacock and chickens. There was a bottle of wine and home made cake awaiting us as well as plenty of logs for the wood burner. The barn was decorated modernly but in keeping with the Cotswold feel, there was plenty of parking and wonderful walks without having to drive anywhere but it is only 15 minutes into wonderful Cheltenham. Overall and excellent place, I would recommend it having stayed at a lot of holiday cottages in the UK.

A 4 bedroom (3 doubles and a twin) barn conversion with 2 ensuite bathrooms as well as a family bathroom.
The barn is recently converted and in smart condition with beams and a wood burner to give plenty of character.
The owners live next door and were very kind and friendly - even leaving us a home-baked cake and a bottle of wine as a welcome gift.
Set in fields in the picture postcard village of Compton Abdale, this was great place to spend New Year's Eve in a cosy and relaxing environment and we thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay.
