Gretchen - Nov 2023 - Air B&B

This was the perfect place to base our adventures in the Cotswolds. We prefer quiet places and this was perfect. The village was small and walkable to nearby villages. The accommodations were the absolute best we have ever stayed. The barn is decorated professionally with a beautiful color palette, uncluttered, simple, comfortable. Attention to detail in every aspect down to the William Morris wallpaper and the fresh Cotswold butter waiting for our arrival. We hope to stay there again very soon!

Jake - Oct 2023 - Air B&B

Beautiful place and very clean. We can’t wait to return.

Paul - Oct 2023 - Air B&B

We were delighted to find such a place near where we wanted to be – It was the perfect location for us to stay. Equally, the communication was excellent throughout. Even though we arrived early, access was given, which was very much appreciated. I would highly recommend it if you are looking for peace and tranquillity, with some luxury to boot. Thank you!

Jul 2023

The property is in the heart of the village but its so peaceful, the sky is full of stars at night and we woke to birdsong.  Made me wonder why I live in London!!

Divine. Honestly the best Airbnb we have ever stayed in. Immaculate inside with the most beautiful design and eye for detail. I almost don’t want to say how good it is incase we can’t get in, in the future. A beautiful space in a beautiful location. Lower Slaughter is by its nature a key spot for tourists but this is hidden away off the main tourist road and we didn’t hear a sound or see anything from The Little Barn. Great walking and running routes surround the cottage. Airy, beautiful, immaculately clean – I can’t say enough praise for it and you won’t want to leave.
