Barnsley House Cirencester (Barnsley)

“An imposing Cotswold house set within stunning (deservedly famed) gardens. Gorgeously renovated rooms are light, airy and full of mod cons. The chic modern interiors, indulgent spa and contemporary British cuisine make it hard to leave! A popular rural escape for urbanites.”

Exclusive Hotel Guru offer

Enjoy a four night break that includes overnight accommodation in a double or twin room of your choice, full English breakfast and use of spa facilities and your fourth night is complimentary. This offer is valid Sunday to Thursday inclusive, subject to availability.

“Formerly the private home and illustrious garden of renowned horticulturalist Rosemary Verey, Barnsley House became a hotel in 2003, the darling of the bonus crowd, its padded red leather bar mere moments from London once you were at the wheel of your trusty Porsche. Happily, the lovely mellow house and still stunningly beautiful garden have since fallen into more measured and caring hands and Barnsley House is now the sister hotel to Calcot Manor (and to the Village Inn, a smart pub with rooms almost opposite). The padded leather has gone, the decoration now more sympathetic to its surroundings, and the lovely, all white, cleverly mirrored dining room leads to what must be one of the prettiest hotel terraces anywhere, with tables shaded by parasols facing the famous garden. There’s also a lovely yet low key spa, tucked away along a shady path.”

Barnsley House

"Located in the unspoiled Cotswolds village of Barnsley, near Cirencester, it's the latest of a new wave of country house hotels that owes more to Vogue than to Country Life."
