Saintbridge is an impressive Cotswold stone property which sleeps eight guests, in four stylish bedrooms, with three bathrooms. Dating back to the late 17th century, this beautifully presented Grade II listed home away from home has been finished to a high standard with a wide range of modern facilities including wireless internet access, a Smart TV with full Sky package (excluding BT Sport), a DVD player and a well-equipped kitchen.

These modern touches are complemented by the splendid character features which remain, including exposed oak beams, stone mullion windows with wooden shutters and an inviting inglenook fireplace with Morso wood burning stove. There is a large enclosed garden and off-street parking for three cars is available on the private driveway.


Saintbridge sits peacefully in the quintessential English village of Barnsley, an unspoilt hideaway in the heart of the Cotswolds. This idyllic village features attractive Cotswold stone properties, the parish church of St Mary’s, and Barnsley House, a stunning retreat which offers a range of spa facilities and a fine dining experience in its restaurant. Also owned by Barnsley House is The Village Pub, often voted as one of the best pubs in the Cotswolds, which prides itself on its seasonal menus and use of local produce.

Surrounded by the rolling countryside which falls within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Barnsley has many walks and cycle routes on its doorstep to discover. It is also well placed for exploring the many superb villages and towns of the region including Bibury, Bourton-on-the-Water, Burford and Cirencester, the capital of the Cotswolds. Further afield destinations such as Bath, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon are also accessible for day trips.
