This former barn provides upside down living accommodation in a beautiful area of the Cotswolds, close to Cirencester and Cheltenham.

Flowers Barn is a beautifully converted detached Cotswold stone barn, still boasting many original features throughout. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, between Duntisbourne Riuse and Duntisbourne Leer. The name is taken from the River Dunt which flows through the village, and also from monks at the Abbey of Gloucester who controlled the area in the 13th century. Flowers Barn is adjacent to the owners’ working farm and occupies a beautiful countryside setting.
Built mainly in the time of Charles II, Flowers Barn was once home to aspiring writer and farm owner Eliza in the early 18th century. Eliza came to inherit 420-acres of land off her father, rather than one of her four brothers, and dedicated her life to the farm. She was a very bright and keen horsewoman, who was the first in the area to own a bicycle and a gas cooker. Eliza worked on the farm up until her death in 1901.
This is a perfect place to stay when in the Cotswolds, being just a 10-minute drive from Roman Cirencester and 20 minutes’ drive from Cheltenham and its famous horse racing festival in March each year. There are plenty of walks and cycle routes for active guests, and this is a very central position from which to visit the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, including Bourton-on-the-Water, Bibury, Burford, Stow-on-the-Wold and Chipping Campden. Both Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon are also a convenient drive away.
The accommodation provides upside down living with the bedrooms and bathroom on the ground floor and the living room and kitchen on the first floor. Outside there is a well-kept front garden with seating area and garden furniture. There is a driveway offering off road parking and a bike store can be made available should guests wish to bring their own bikes to leave the car behind and explore the area. A purpose-built dog kennel, with a run, is available if dogs get wet and dirty. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    The barn was spacious, clean and the people warm and friendly. It was a little isolated but this was not a problem apart from finding a pub.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; It was lovely to meet you both and I am glad you liked Flowers Barn. As you say, it is quiet here but it is peaceful, the internet is great and we are only 5 miles from the centre of Cirencester. We hope to see you again. Best Wishes.

    Excellent place, very beautiful, very well kept and maintained, lovely hosts. Only (minor) minus is the slightly remote location, but then again you get a lot of peace and quiet, which is also great. Highly recommended!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feed back. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay in Flowers Barn. We are in a peaceful spot but the busy market town of Cirencester is only 5 miles away. We hope you will visit us again when you need some quiet relaxation.
