Vinnie - Jul 2024 - Air B&B

This place was beautiful. It met our expectations and then some. Very nice location as well. Very unique experience.

Shaun - Jul 2024 - Air B&B

The “Little Barn” was picture perfect! Tasteful decor and comfortable spaces. Excellent location as well, which made it easy for day trips and dinner destinations.

Ken - Jun 2024 - Booking.com

One of the best places we’ve ever stayed, we hope to be back one day! Lovely quiet location in beautiful little village, which is a great base for exploring the Cotswolds. The accommodation has everything you need, is very spacious and feels like a home away from home.

Jun 2024

Absolutely loved this peaceful gem right in the heart of stunning slaughters. The pictures matched the property, everything was clean, easy to get to, easy hosts to communicate with. We enjoyed the fireplace tremendously and the tub, and the large lovely kitchen. Attention to detail in this cosy property with the décor was nice to observe too. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Jun 2024

This beautiful place in Lower Slaughter is in such a great location. It is walkable to Burton-on the-Water and Upper Slaughter. The kitchen amenities and all furnishings were as lovely as the photos. The bed comfortable and we had great communication with the host. Nice stay and would highly recommend.

May 2024

We had a delightful few days staying at the Little Barn, it was to celebrate my husbands birthday. It was beautiful very home from for us.

May 2024

Wonderful location in the prettiest part of the Cotswolds. The cottage was perfectly sized, and only a short distance from a pub and restaurants. We also really enjoyed the small hamper basket of locally select produce

Apr 2024

Loved staying there. Close to everything in a nice and quiet environment. Very comfortable the whole house, the bed, the shower, the kitchen everything perfect. I’d come back without hesitation.

Mar 2024

This easily became our favorite Airbnb. The village is stunning, with the cottage perfectly placed in its center while still incredibly private. The bed is an escape in its own right, the kitchen a joy to use, while the size of the home provides nice separation. We certainly plan to return!

Mar 2024

Absolutely divine stay – better than imagined. This is one of the best Airbnbs I’ve ever stayed in. I hope to be back!

Feb 2024

Beautiful shower room – luxurious sanitary ware, lovely towels, dressing gowns and toiletries. Clearly much attention to detail. Also the separate slipper bath. Lovely kitchen and thoughtful welcome pack, lovingly decorated. The whole property was stunning and thoughtfully and tastefully decorated.

Dec 2023

A wonderful place to stay, loved the house and area, the house contain everything we need

Nov 2023

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!

Oct 2023

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

Oct 2023

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!

Aug 2023

What a wonderful place to stay , very cosy and the cleanest place I have ever stayed in , my wife and I loved it thankyou

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!!

May 2023

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.
