We booked Greyhound Barn for a family celebration and stayed two nights. There was plenty of room for 15 people and it was well equipped. The kitchen was a little small for cooking shared family meals but there was plenty of fridge and freezer space and enough room for us all to eat together. The large upstairs lounge was comfortable and had enough seating for everyone. The owners, who live next door were very friendly and helpful and the welcome basket was a lovely touch. It wasn’t too cold to...
We had a couples weekend and then a group of guys for Cheltenham races. Everyone was very impressed with the space we all had, en-suite in every room and the huge living area upstairs for us all to relax. The kitchen facilities were up to the standard of our resident chef and the welcome pack was lovely, especially the home made lemon drizzle cake!!! The owner came round early on the Saturday morning to welcome us and assure us that any problems would be taken care of quickly, but no need as all was well. Would definitely like to return.
The house was warm and friendly and provided everything we needed (except, perhaps, good wifi) for a successful stay. We had a memorable meal at the Village Pub across the road. Great walks from the door which we did in the snow on a beautiful day. Highly recommended.
This is our second year at Greyhound Barn and it is a lovely welcoming property; ideal for large groups and very cosy. It was beautifully set up when we arrived with Christmas trees and the table set for dinner. Lovely touches and the owners couldn’t be more helpful and accommodating. I’m sure we’ll be back.
The owner knew it was my 70th birthday celebration and included a couple of bottles of 'fizz' along with basics such as tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits on the dining table for us. Both tables were set in festive red and the Christmas decorations added a holiday touch.
We had a warm and friendly welcome from the owner, also a very generous welcome hamper, thank you!
Greyhound Barn is really well equipped to cater for our large group of 16. The spacious lounge and kitchen/diner were excellent and we had everything we needed with the exception of weak mobile phone connections. This is obviously beyond the control of the owners. We would certainly recommend it to friends.
House was in a great location with a lovely pub opposite.
This huge property is a wonderful place for a large party to enjoy time together without being in each other’s way. It is roomy, well equipped and clean. Each of the 8 bedrooms is en suite, some with wet rooms, others with showers plus an extra bathroom with a bath. The owners who live in the farmhouse next door are lovely people who were most helpful. Barnsley (Glos) is easy to find and there are lots of attractions and places to see within easy reach. Cirencester is close by with its variety of shops and there is a petrol station and shop just down the hill and an excellent pub in the Village. It is a rural area so do take insect deterrent and a fly swatter.
We enjoyed a family holiday at Greyhound Barn. There were 13 of us ranging from 19 months to 72 and the property accommodated us all brilliantly. It's a great spot for exploring the area and there's plenty to do locally within a half hour drive. The outside area was good for playing and relaxing for all ages and we were lucky enough to have great weather so ate outside a lot too. There were a few minor niggles with the property but nothing to stop us having a wonderful holiday and nothing that can't be rectified very easily. The owners were very friendly and helpful and sorted out an issue we had with a shower immediately which was great. We'd certainly recommend it as a holiday destination!
Every aspect as hoped for, great for the 4 children aged 4-12, (if the kids are happy so are the adults ). Also good walks for Rufus the Springer Spaniel would certainly consider this house again if we can gather the clan in the future.
