“Great location, excellent accommodation, lovely owners”
Reviewed 30 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We rented this property to use as a base for our sons wedding.

Jackie and Tim, the owners of the cottage, live next door and gave us a very warm welcome on arrival.

We ask for several favours during our stay and nothing was too much trouble.

The facilities in the property are first class, and the log burner gave a homely feel when the evening came.

The views from the cottage are spectacular, rain or sun, and the local pub which has a good variety on its menu is a short walk away.

We will return to stay as there is plenty to see and do.

We stayed at Sheepscombe Byre the last weekend of Feb, with friends. You could not wish for a better place to stay. The view is amazing. The accommodation was excellent, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and a very warm and cosy living area, loved the underfloor heating. We will hopefully return in the late summer, but whatever happens, we will be back, Thankyou Jacki, lovely stay.

“Immaculate accommodation and excellent location to explore the Cotswolds”
Reviewed 16 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The cottage offered five star accommodation with all needs catered for milk in the fridge and some sumptious biscuites on arrival was a very welcome gesture. Located in the quaint village of Snowhill it is the perfect starting point to explore the Cotswolds. The owner is on site and at hand and offers a wealth of local information should it be required.

“Like staying in a fairy tale”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed here two years ago when we hiked the Cotswold Way and it was my favorite stop on the entire Way - in fact I cried when I had to hike off after only one night. So my husband determined to let me return and we did so this fall for a week with two dear friends. And it was as perfect as I remembered it.
First of all Snowshill village itself is just breathtakingly lovely and from just above the Byrne you have a view of the village. The hiking in any direction - to the woods above, over to Stanton, up to Broadway Tower, off to chipping Camden is a hiker/walker's dream - I had a fantastic hike every day of our trip. Our friends, who were not the fanatical hiker I am, loved the location just as much, because it is a great spot from which to see Stonehenge and Bath and Stratford if traveling by car.
Now for the cottage itself - it has beautiful views, it is quiet, and it is perfectly appointed. Comfortable beds, full kitchen, everything needed for a relaxing time. They have recently remodeled the downstairs to make this a self catering apartment and all the work they did was top notch - lovely flooring, counters, artwork! We all felt "at home" - the place is warm and cozy and had everything we could have asked for. Even has a BBQ and patio table. And Our host and hostess were so kind and attentive, ready with hiking and road maps, books on the area, suggestions for restaurants, and touring tips.
We are currently visiting London and the four of talk wistfully of our PERFECT spot in the Cotswolds. It really is perfect! We would highly recommend Sheepscombe Byre!
