I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and LJ for a fantastic couple of days. The venue is absolutely stunning. You have done an incredible job. Your communication before, during and after the event has been second to none. You met me on the first day and helped me set the room up so it was just right for my team. You took time to understand my needs and desired out come and gave valuable inputs into this.
You were attentive without being intrusive and nothing was ever to much trouble.
The catering you put on was superb. Unfortunately this added some pressure to myself (as I was cooking in the evening) as the bar was set so high.
I have asked my team to give feedback on the two days and specifically the venue, please see below. Please bear in mind we all stay away a fair amount in lots of different venues so the below are a reflection of how the two days compare.
“Amazing venue, best I’ve ever stayed in. In work or otherwise.”
“Wonderful venue, great location, very comfortable, spacious and homely.”
“Just like home, felt free as a bird, all you could ever want and more. I loved it.”
“Great location, beautiful surroundings and interior with a homely feel. First class many thanks.”
“Lovely couple of days. Gorgeous place, beautifully decorated with a real homely feel. Thanks Simon looking forward to returning again.”
John Mackrory - Edinburgh - February 2017
Dear Simon- just to say what a wonderful time all the family had in your delightful Cotswold Barn accommodation. We all had a tremendous time, relaxing, country walks, even sitting in the sun in the barn doors sun trap. Also the whole experience topped off by the truly scrumptious lunch prepared by Mary Rose. Every body thoroughly enjoyed the meal, probably eating way too much! Mary was so efficient, and all ready on time! We will all have many happy memories of the time we had there. Thank you again.
Steve Green - Funding Circle - London - January 2017
Funding Circle selected the Cotswold Park Barns due to its perfect combination of work, play and comfortable living space. It is hard to find a location that has been as well thought through when it comes to creating the right environment for team building and working, but they have clearly used their experience to focus on the details that matter. It also really helped that they were on hand to welcome the group and support us through the days we spent there. I am looking forward to a return trip.
Russell Bragg - Guilford - New Year 2017
We had a family New Year reunion for 16 people this year (2017) at Cotswold Park Barns. People came from Calgary, Dubai, the Isle of Man...Preston! So the place needed to impress - and it didn't disappoint. The property looked amazing in its Christmas finery and was superbly equipped for such a large group - double ovens, work areas and sinks in the kitchen, a huge dining room table that we didn't even fill in front of the open fire in the high ceilinged dining room, copious sumptuous sofas around a burning log fire in the lounge and plenty of large and very comfortable en suite bedrooms with very comfortable beds for some well deserved rest. We even had caterers in on New Year's Eve so we could all relax and they cooked a meal that would've graced the tables of any fine restaurant. The owner, Simon and his team were friendly and helpful and our only reservation is about letting anyone else know about it! But that would be churlish.
Pat Clancy - Loughborough - November 2016
We are a large family group of 3 generations with ages ranging from 2 to 68 years of age. We are spread over the Country with some now even living overseas in New York. So we like to try and get together at the end of November to celebrate an early Christmas get together.
We have rented different houses for the last 8 years and have had some wonderful times. But last year we came across Cotswold Park Barns. What a find!!
A large stunning, very high quality accommodation with everything you could possibly want. In fact the photos do not do it justice. When contacting Simon to book it, he could not have been more helpful. Any requests from us was met with "no problem" and always sorted. Simon greeted us on our arrival to show us around and answer any questions we had and then left us to enjoy our weekend. And what a weekend!!
The home was so luxurious and spacious in a beautiful area with walks from the door and many lovely places to visit close by. It was perfect for all the generations in our party. We never felt 'on top' of each other and could always find a quiet area to sit and relax. By the end of the weekend, when Simon came to say goodbye, we realised that we had found the place we all want to go back to for our family Christmas get together, so have booked it for 2017!!!
We can't wait to stay at the Cotswold Park Barns again.
Candy Turner - Wiltshire - October 2016
We were a large party aged from 6 weeks to 70 years old and we all had a marvellous weekend. A beautiful, extremely well equipped barn with loads of space for a large group, with very relaxed and non intrusive owners. Our bedrooms were all extremely clean and very comfortable, although we did not spend much time in them as there was the spacious sitting room and a lovely dining room to spend time in together, and of course the beautiful kitchen where we all seemed to gather (as you do) to chat and cook. We had walkers who enjoyed exploring the countryside and others who just enjoyed being in the barn. A really lovely catered meal was provided by the owners recommended caterer and every guest loved it. We all had an extremely relaxing but joyous weekend and look forward to returning one day.
Joanna Thornton, Kent - August 2016
Just a quick note to thank you for a wonderful weekend at your Barns. The whole party could not have been more elated at the truly superb accommodation, or the glorious surroundings. You were such a friendly host and took care of our every need. We are truly grateful for all your time and assistance. Needless to say, you can expect us back. Indeed several us will be bringing other friends!!
Ben Saville - Microsoft - Reading - July 2016
“I’ve used Cotswold Park Barns on two occasions for corporate offsite events and have found it to be the perfect place to get away from the world for business planning and team building. The place itself is stunning with great spaces and excellent accommodation. The highlight though is the private chef who catered for all of our requirements throughout our stays. Simon and the team are always there when you need them, but never obtrusive. They are very professional but always relaxed. I’d highly recommend.”
Helen Grieves, Hampshire - July 2016
I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for everything you have done this weekend and letting us stay. The house is absolutely amazing and was the perfect setting for Sophie's party. We all had the most amazing time and are all very sad to have left today. We are trying to think of reasons to come back again!!
The food from Mary Rose was outstanding - I can see why she does all your catering! It was an amazing meal.
Alexandra Woods - Leeds - May 2016
I can't recommend Cotswold park barn enough, a luxury barn in a lovely location with everything you could want and more. The owners are very helpful, friendly and their attention to detail was faultless. The barn was beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. I would highly recommend The green dragon inn and the Bathurst arms for food and Ella and Fleur for yoga. An instructor can come out to the barn to teach a yoga class to big groups! We loved every minute and can't wait to stay again.
Linda Poole - Monmouthshire - May 2016 and Christmas 2016
We needed a large property for a family celebration. We found the perfect place. The barns could accommodate us all, young and old. Everything we could have wished for was there. Every room was perfect. The bedrooms were all beautifully decorated and had the most luxurious bedding. The fully equipped disabled facilities in a downstairs bedroom were excellent for an elderly member of the party.
Our May visit meant we were able to take advantage of the wonderful outside areas and made good use of the barbecue and hot tub. We were 'far from the Madding Crowd ' for 4 wonderful days with just the sheep for company!
Every member of our party had such a wonderful time we couldn't wait to do it all over again!! We returned to the barns for the most magical, memorable family Christmas. The log fires were lit and the whole place looked festive with decorated trees and lights. What a wonderful chimney for Santa to come down!!!!
Thank you Simon and LJ for making both our visits perfect.
Alison Blythe - Manchester - April 2016
Cotswold Park Barns is an AMAZING venue and accommodated our 20 guests perfectly. We celebrated a birthday here in luxury and style and made lots of special memories which will last forever. All the guests commented on the high speck of the bedrooms and we loved the open feel of the kitchen / dinning room. We also had the added bonus of a musician within our group who made use of the piano which was just magical within those surroundings. Simon was very attentive to all of our needs and made the booking process a joy and full of confidence. I would highly recommend Cotswold Park Barns to everyone and wish them well with there life venture. A pure pleasure from start to finish!
Giselle Bailey - London - January 2016
My 19 friends and I celebrated my 40th birthday weekend at Cotswold Park Barns January 2016 . We arrived to a beautiful , luxurious property on scenic grounds . We were greeted and made to feel very much at home. The rooms are all beautifully designed and property very spacious . We enjoyed a weekend of dinner parties , table tennis matches , country walks and relaxation. We even made a pop video ! The owners were on hand when needed but also left us to our own devices .. Will definately stay again ! We had a fantastic weekend . Thankyou .
Ian Franklin, London - January 2016
Can I just say again waht a fantastic time we had staying in your barns. It couldn't have been better and we really appreciated it. The kids loved it and the older ones greatly appreciated everyone coming together.
We recognise how much work and though went into the design and development of the barns. You did a fantastic job and I'm sure you will have lots more happy customers!
Pauline Driscoll - Cardiff - Christmas 2015
We found the barn met all our expectations and much more ! The accommodation was fantastic every room was 5 star ⭐️ level
The facilities particularly the kitchen were excellent and xmas dinner for 24 was easily achieved
Our hosts we're particularly obliging and nothing was too much trouble and they were never invasive during our stay
The location was perfect a short drive to nearby towns and local walks through the countryside were enjoyable
We would love to visit again one day when funds allow
Chris Morris - London - December 2015
A perfect spot for a civilised get together. Exceptional finish throughout, a wonderful dining space and a real rarity in properties of this size - a living room with enough sofas for all the guests! We'll be back.
Tom Wakefield - November 2015
A wonderful asset to the Cotswolds... a great restoration of a location full of history! Have used the venue for business as a first choice for the team here at Cotswold TV.
The Oxford Ski Company and OS Private Travel - November 2015
WOW, WOW, WOW!!! Incredible all round. What a team to convert a barn and cattle shed into a seriously smart, impressive venue. Beautifully and diligently done. It made me weak to even imagine how much hard work has already gone in to the project. I simply wish you the very best for its success.
Gemma Middleton - Mitchells & Butlers - Birmingham - October 2015
We stayed at Cotswold Park Barns as part of a Team Building event. A group of 14, and every single person was over whelmed at how stunning and spacious the Barn was. Ideal for large groups. Beautiful, clean and Simon was very helpful. We would all defiantly recommend and will hopefully use again in the future.
Emma Daden - Hertfordshire - October 2015
110% recommend booking Cotswold Park Barns!!!!
I booked the barn as a surprise weekend away for my dad. It was his 60th birthday and I arranged for all the family and close friends to come and join us for the weekend. He was over the moon as was everyone else as the barn is absolutely stunning throughout. Such a treat to stay here, we were all smiling from start to finish and super sad to leave.
Working with Simon was a complete joy and ever so helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay.
We look forward to booking another weekend away here in the future! Do not hesitate in booking, you wont be disappointed.
