Being greeted on arrival by a sentry knight in shining armour leaves you in no doubt that a stay at The Barn will be brimming with history and character. Set amidst 14.5 acres of calming landscaped gardens, the luxuriously converted barn on the Temple Guiting Manor estate is the answer to a quintessential, Cotswolds escape with a quirky twist.

A stay at this luxury house in the Cotswolds is idyllic in every season. The quaint courtyard bordered with blooms is the perfect place to savour a classic afternoon tea on a fragrant spring afternoon or crisp autumn morning. A short one-minute meander away is your own private swimming pool glistening inside a stone-walled garden, which you can bask in from May to October on glorious sunny days. With an outdoor rose gold shower, shepherd’s hut changing room and the Peacock annex at the end of the lawn complete with shaded seating, you won’t have to wander far for amenities. Back by The Barn, a bubbling cedar hot tub is perfect for stargazing on a clear night in the countryside.

Stepping inside your private house in the Cotswolds is akin to stepping inside the abode of an eclectic antiques collector. Soaring white ceilings adorned with wooden beams and a grand chandelier add character to the cosy living room, where you can claim your favourite leather chair after a day’s rambling in the great outdoors. Pick a tune from the jukebox on the overhead glass mezzanine to accompany a pre-dinner board game by the log fire, before retreating to the light and airy open plan kitchen dining room, perfect for quality time together and flooded with light from the floor to ceiling windows. On a warm summer’s eve, throw back the glass doors and enjoy the serenity of the countryside dining al fresco.

When it’s time to retreat to bed, five tastefully themed rooms are yours for the choosing. Whether you select the soft hues of the Pink or White rooms in the cosy eves, the grandeur of the Gold room or are drawn to the artworks of the African room, you will sleep in the comfort of White Company luxury linens, perfect to sink into after a soak in one of the roll top baths. For extra guests or staff, the annex Peacock room is the perfect solution.

When you’re not lunching around the BBQ or playing a spot of tennis on the shared court, the endless charming villages of the Cotswolds may be the only thing to tempt you away from your luxury house in the Cotswolds.

There’s nothing quite like a British BBQ on a warm summer’s eve, and with al fresco dining in your private courtyard, you can embrace the great outdoors during your stay in your luxury Cotswolds lodge. For a celebration, a festive affair or simply some quality time together, leave the cooking to a local chef who can be hired upon request. With a vegetable garden on the estate, you know your ingredients will always be fresh.

For a morning coffee fix or tasty treat, the estate’s own Temple Guilting Pantry is in the village a short five-minute walk away. Brimming with character, this once post office turned two storey restaurant with a quaint garden will tempt your tastebuds with breakfast, lunch, coffee and cakes until late afternoon. A takeaway menu is ideal if you want to pick up a bite to eat for back at The Barn. The adjoining lifestyle shop has a tempting selection of wines to choose from too: the perfect accompaniment for a night by the fire.

For a hearty British pub lunch, the Hallow Bottom is a pleasant one hour walk away, and you can reward yourself for your efforts with gastro delights including Cornish whole lemon sole, duck egg rarebit, and of course, a classic fish and chips.


Firefly pre-arrival concierge service.

An estate manager is on hand throughout the day should you need any assistance. Additional staff such as a private chef, housekeeper and sport coaches can be arranged at an additional cost upon request.


Kids will be in their element during a stay at The Barn. Endless hours can be spent splashing in the pool and playing on the adjoining lawn in your own private garden. Games galore are on hand, whether it’s a round of tennis on the shared court, a spot of table football or a classic board game. With an Xbox, music system and movie library, tech savvy teens will be happy with the gadgets available.

For a fun day out with little animal lovers, the Cotswold Farm Park is only a 5-minute drive away. Discover the barn away from The Barn, with lots of cuddly creatures from rabbits to guinea pigs, and farm animals from piglets to donkeys. In autumn, the pumpkin patch is a riot of colour from where you can pick your Halloween staple.
