Why Stay Here?
Four miles from Cirencester in the sylvan surrounds of the picture perfect village of Barnsley, Barnsley House is a sumptuous home-away-from-home with heart. This 17th century retreat is an hour and 30 minutes drive from west London and a 20 minute taxi ride from Kemble station.
Comprising 18 hideaway rooms and secret garden suites, the charming rooms alone are an inviting solace from the hustle and bustle of the day-to-day. An escape with friends or loved ones can easily be accommodated at Barnsley House’s very own Home Farm Cottage, a mere stroll away with its three double bedrooms, roll top baths and kitchen replete with freshly baked bread, farm yard eggs and other accoutrements bespoke to one’s needs.
A tranquil spa offers a range of indulgent treatments and therapies by Elemis, a relaxing lounge with enchanting garden views and an outdoor hydrotherapy pool. Nature extends from the beautiful surrounds into the spa, which features indoor plants, tables crafted from tree trunks and lavender scented rooms. As well as the spa, a cosy cinema welcome guests in from a day discovering the Cotswoldian countryside, whilst hidden nooks with ample armchairs and sofas bedeck the living areas to while away an afternoon catching up with a loved one or good book!
Amplifying the essence of an English countryside retreat is Barnsley House’s surrounding fairy-tale gardens, lovingly cultivated by the revered garden designer Rosemary Verey. The Potager restaurant, overlooking the glorious 4-acre gardens and terrace, serves epicurean marvels taking inspiration and ingredients from the bountiful onsite kitchen garden.
For an authentic English country pub experience, The Village Pub, situated opposite the hotel, serves up a menu of heart-warming fireplaces, local craft ales and splendid seasonal food with comfy, family-friendly bedroom boltholes nestled beneath old wooden beams. Those who enjoy a countryside ramble with their pets can take advantage of ‘Paws at the Pub’ stays, where up to two dogs can spend the night in one of the Pub’s dog-friendly rooms complete with beds, bowls and doggie treats ready for them on arrival.
From countryside golf and polo, to local cookery classes and theatre plays, Barnsley House and The Village Pub are the perfect base to discover the Cotswolds.
