Husband and I stayed here for two nights to attend friends wedding. The accomodation is a little way out of Gloucester so if you are planning on using a taxi make sure you leave ample time and have cash - minimum charge of £15 for a taxi. This was more expensive than a London black cab! Accomodation is clean and...

Aim was to stay 3 nights - I lasted 1 and checked out. First time in 3-4 years I've left somewhere early. I was on business and things that let this place down for me personally were: 1.

We arrived on Tuesday 25th October, to have a relaxing break . We were accompanied by our dog, who was welcomed with open arms. We were a little early as 4pm was stated as book in time, however, it wasn't a problem. We went straight to our allocated room and were very pleased. Beautiful decor and warm, homely and spotlessly...

We stayed one night to attend a party at the Village Hall close by. Location is good for Gloucester/Newent. This large barn conversion has 10 rooms and plenty of parking. Our room was a good size and well equipped with quality furnishings, tall mirrors and several plug points ...always a plus point ! Bed looked nice but sadly not that...

We selected this place to stay as it is dog friendly and it did not disappoint. The room was lovely with a soft but very comfortable bed. Good quality furniture and furnishings. There was free wifi in the room. Staff were very friendly and we were able to pick up our key early. Breakfast was good with a good range...

We arrived at Barn Lodge after a day travelling and then visiting Gloucester quays/docks. Linda gave us a warm welcome and took us to our rooms. She was able to advise local eateries to suit all budgets. On our return we walked around the lakes and took in the beautiful surroundings of Barn Lodge, meeting Linda, Julian and dog enroute....
