This stunning property offers enticing food, sumptuous suites, a relaxed atmosphere and discreet, impeccable service.
Barnsley House is a place where you can escape, relax and breathe. The rooms are individual, with a character of their own. Relax in your suite with complimentary homemade ice cream, chocolates and champagne, take a bath while watching a DVD or sleep the morning away. The suites are designed for one purpose alone - absolute comfort and enjoyment, you may never want to leave your room. With the very best in entertainment systems and communication links in every room, this is a classic country house with all the latest technology. And if pampering is your thing, then look no further than the Barnsley House bathrooms. Imagine twin tubs, jacuzzis, walk through showers, luxurious soaps, foams and oils. Playful lighting using fibre optics. And plasma screens. This isn't just luxury, this is pure decadence.
The garden at Barnsley House is enchanting, one of England's finest and most famous. Not grand or forbidding, this is a place where you can truly relax, with charming walks, sunny terraces and knot gardens, beautifully ornate formal lawns, ancient meadows and ungoverned wilderness. Read by the temple and pool garden in the late afternoon sun or enjoy a long drink on the verandah with friends. Allow yourself to be spoiled or left entirely alone. Discover Gloucestershire in the pretty Cotswolds villages of Bibury, Nailsworth and Snowshill, whose traditional thatched houses are built of mellow, golden Cotswold stone. Stratford-on-Avon warrants a full day's visit to see Shakespeare's birthplace, Anne Hathaway's cottage and a play at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Walk the legendary English countryside on miles of byways, footpaths and bridleways offered throughout the county.
