The Owner Says

Simple, luxe hut with king-sized bed, fine linens, towels, ensuite shower & compost loo, wood burning stove, kitchenette with gas hob and small fridge. Outside is set up to encourage guests to connect with nature, relax in the wood-fired hot tub, kick back in the deckchairs and cook over the firepit. We love cooking over fire and provide each hut with tripod, cast iron fire-cooking equipment. Firepit meal hampers can be added to your stay. We provide two crates of wood for each stay and there's a woodshed with an honesty box to restock. There is parking for each hut by the entrance and guests wheel barrow their belongings to the huts.

Glorious, rambling countryside, honey coloured stone picturesque villages, quaint English scenes and rare wildlife make up the Cotswolds - England’s largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The T Barn sits in the pretty village of Barnsley, a small village with the Village Pub and Barnsley House Hotel offering fabulous food and gardens. Garden lovers will appreciate Rosemary Veery’s distinguished garden design at the hotel, once her home. The farm itself is a beautiful spot and one that we are committed to sharing with others, the land rolls outwards across the valley providing lush pastures for the cows... and campers!

Food & Drink

The Village Pub and Barnsley House Hotel are a short walk from the huts and summer camp. We also love The Stump, 10 minute drive or 1 hour walk for a sourdough pizza or rotisserie on Sundays. Bibury is the neighbouring village, perfect spot for an ice cream besides the river. The New Inn at Coln is a 1.5 hour walk (10 minute drive) and does a great burger. We also can provide dinner or breakfast hampers for your fire pit or an afternoon cream tea - just add to your booking.

Getting There

Whether coming from Cirencester to the south or Burford to the north, the village of Barnsley is reached on the B4425. Once you are in the village there are different instructions for each part of the site and Eloise sends out detailed instructions after booking.

Getting to the T Barn shepherd’s hut or campsite by public transport is possible but takes planning. The closest railway station is at Kemble, nine miles from site. From there you would need to take a taxi to site (probably a good idea to book in advance) or to cycle if you’re bringing a bike. Alternatively national coach services stop at Cirencester, a little closer to site. From there, taxis are more easily available or you could take a bus to Barnsley. There are just a few a day and none on Sundays. It’s a ten-minute walk from the bus stop to the camping field or shepherd’s huts.
