My family and I stayed at Snipe Barn for the week as we were in Oxfordshire for a wedding. On arrival, even with the rain lashing down it couldn't detract from how well thought out and decorated Snipe Barn was. With there being 11 staying there may have been concerns with fights over whom got which room, no such problem ever arose.

The 4 smaller bedrooms (all large doubles) were fantastic and the two main bedrooms were just the owners showing off. The bathrooms, living room and kitchen areas were just as good and were just what we were after. We hosted a BBQ one of the days, Snipe catered to 30+ people easily and the owners were even kind enough to spare us a further 2 bbqs.

The nearby walks and nature reserve are fantastic, as are the quaint nearby towns which had all shopping amenities as well as pubs galore.

There are some great golf courses nearby, we didn't get chance to play them all but got great value at Carterton golf club which was 5 mins away and only £20 green fee. Was in great condition and a good test (coming from 2 scratch Players) Def worth a visit.

Genuinely couldn't have been happier with the stay, only downside was coming home.
Would definitely stay there again. It was perfect for summer and I'm sure it would be just as good, if not better near Christmas and New Years.

Should also mention there are two other smaller barns which I'm sure are just as good as snipe if you are looking for a smaller place. You'll be well looked after!

“Excellent location for a family and friends get together”
Reviewed 21 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We enjoyed an excellent short stay with a group of "old" friends. The accommodation is of a high standard, with plenty of space to spread out, even for a large group and the facilities for self catering are good. If you like to get away from it all then the location could not be better, within a few hundred yards of the Thames with lovely walks in the Cotswolds Nature Reserve. The communication with the managers and the reception on site was first rate. Highly recommended.
