We stayed at Winterberry Cottage for a friend's wedding in Cirencester and Cripps barn. The cottage was perfectly located, only a few miles both. The village has a wonderful local pub which is really popular (be sure to book!)
The cottage itself is fantastic! A traditional Cotswold cottage that is beautifully decorated, clean and cosy. The owners have really thought about what makes a great rental cottage-it's got everything you need for a wonderful stay...fully equipped kitchen (the Aga takes some getting used to but is really handy once mastered!), large dining area, cosy lounge that easily seats 6 or more, outside table and chairs, a dart board, music speaker and a detailed instruction/information booklet. The cottage would comfortably sleep 6, with 2 double rooms and 2 singles in the third room. One of the doubles has a sizeable en suite and there is a large main bathroom.
The surrounding area of the Cotswolds are really beautiful and easily accessed from the cottage, can't wait to return and explore more!
Winterberry is in the Cotswold village of Barnsley centrally located to the region. It's a wonderful cottage oozing with charm, perfect for 2-3 couples with a living room, large kitchen and central eating area. We spent a couple of evenings cooking "in" and playing rounds of darts. The home is clean, well maintained and stocked with all utensils and cooking supplies you could need. Pub is 2 doors down with excellent food. I'd highly recommend a stay here !
Wow! What a beautiful cottage in a perfect location. The owners really have got everything right. The decor is beautiful; the lounge is cosy and comfortable; the beds are super comfy and the kitchen fully equipped with everything you would need. We had a weekend away with the girls and all felt at home straight away and really didn't want to leave.
The location is spot on with the village pub 30 seconds walk one way and Barnsley House about a minute's walk the other. The cottage was easy to find and there are so many beautiful villages and pubs to visit just a short drive away.
We ate in the village pub on the first night which was lovely - great food atmosphere and very friendly and cosy. On Sunday night we went to Barnsley House for their Cinema Club night. They have a lovely little on site cinema and after the film you have dinner in their beautiful restaurant which was delicious... and all stumbling distance from Winterberry Cottage!
If 'cosy chic' is what you're after this is it!
My girlfriends and I chose Winterberry cottage for a weekend escape for my friend's 30th birthday. The whole weekend was absolutely ideal. The cottage is so lovely and warm and has everything you need. We kept saying we felt like we were in the film The Holiday as everything was idyllic. The kitchen is very well kitted out and we had no problem cooking up a roast on the Sunday. Barnsley itself is a gorgeous, tiny little village. We had dinner at the Village Pub one night and at Barnsley House the second night, both are 30 seconds walk from Winterberry and both excellent! We went for a lovely walk from the cottage as well. We all highly recommend this cottage and are all actually contemplating going back with our respective husbands. :)
We spent a wonderful 4 night break with our two children (4 and 2) and one set of grandparents. The house is well equipped, lovely spacious but cosy sitting room and an aga which radiates warmth throughout the large open plan kitchen. The bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect and the children didn't want to return to London.
The pub opposite was delicious and there were lots of great things to do only a short drive away.
Perfect break, thank you!
