“Beautiful barn in a beautiful location”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The barn is immaculate inside with everything you could need. The owner was very helpful in the run up to our visit and the location is idyllic, with rapeseed fields surrounding the property. A beautiful part of the world and some lovely walks nearby.

“A wonderful relaxing holiday.”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We all enjoyed a relaxing holiday in Curlew Cottage.
A real home from home. This recently converted luxurious barn is beautifully situated in a tranquil location with lovely wide reaching views across the countryside.
Lovely deep baths with plentiful hot water, soft comfortable beds and everything one could need.
Very convenient location both for local tourist attractions and quick access to the motorway for trips to London,
Washing machine and tumble drier were excellent to handle holiday washing chores.

“What a lovely venue for our family celebration weekend!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

person found this review helpful

The spacious barn has been beautifully converted and equipped to a very high standard. We loved the extensive views from each window over the surrounding peaceful downland. It was very easy to relax and unwind in such a place. It was also a treat to be able to abandon the cars and go off on foot straight from the barn. Even my four-year-old granddaughter managed the flat walk to Avebury. We also had a very good meal at the Silks on the Downs, near Ogbourne St Andrew, just a short drive away.
Everything possible was done to ensure guests would enjoy their stay. All the booking arrangements were made very efficiently and plenty of useful information was provided. The tea tray all set for our arrival was also much appreciated. We all wished we had been staying for a week instead of just a weekend!

“Perfect weekend away in the most fabulous cottage”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We went to Curlew Cottage for the May bank holiday weekend and we had the most fantastic time. All the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and the beds are so comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed and there was a BBQ and seating area outside. The booking process was very smooth and the owner of the cottage couldn't have been more helpful. There are lots of lovely, pubs, cycle rides and walks nearby. I couldn't recommend Curlew Cottage more highly and I really hope to go back there one day.
