Temple Guiting | Bedrooms: 5 | Sleeps: 10 + 2

Rates: from £6,800 per week

The Barn is a beautifully renovated property on a 14 acre estate in the heart of the Gloucestershire Cotswolds. Much of the inspiration for the design of the Barn came from renowned architect Ptolemy Dean with gardens and landscaping by Jinny Blom, a Chelsea Flower Show gold winner in 2007. The owner won the HRH Prince Charles Pinnacle Award in recognition of the restoration work carried out on the property's dry stone walls.

The area offers a wealth of picturesque villages to explore, replete with tea rooms, many renowned restaurants and of course exceptional architecture from Norman churches dating from the 11th and 12th centuries to manor houses and cottages built in the warm, soft limestone that characterises the area. There are exceptional walking possibilities, most famed of which is the Cotswold Way. There are also many activities on offer to keep the young and older entertained from Blenheim Palace and Sudeley Castle to The Cotswold Wildlife Park and Farm Park.


The property accommodates 10 people in 5 superb bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms.

The villa

Because everyone’s concept of a villa holiday is different, we have created a formula designed to offer privacy, flexibility and the freedom to run your own holiday or call upon us to help open up a world of possibilities. Our villas are normally rented on a villa-only weekly basis and are ideal for those seeking independence and privacy. We’re on call in case you need us and we provide a change of towels and bed linen during the week, but otherwise there no inclusions. 

A&K Concierge upgrade

For additional support, comfort and a slice of pampering why not upgrade to our A&K Concierge service. Included is an airport welcome on arrival with assistance for onward transportation; the services of an A&K Concierge – whose local knowledge provides you with invaluable assistance and recommendations; an orientation of the local area; a fully stocked drinks fridge; maid service; the ingredients for your first evening’s supper and breakfast delivered on the first morning of your stay. For full details of concierge inclusions speak to an A&K Travel Consultant on 0845 618 2205.

The finishing touches

Ever dreamt of driving through the Chianti hills in a red Ferrari, or along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco in a Bentley? How about sailing along the Cote d'Azur to St Tropez in a private yacht or speed boat? Sometimes the home is all that you need, but if you're lured into culture, excitement, activity, improving your cooking or simply dabbling in landscapes, then speak to one of our Villa Specialists for an insight into what we can arrange. These are what we call our ‘Finishing Touches’.

The list is by no means exhaustive and we always welcome requests, however obscure you may think they are! Our local offices enable us to control the quality of the services on offer and the depth of knowledge our local teams have is impressive. Our aim is to provide guests with the authentic sights, flavours and experiences of the region they are staying in.

If you would prefer to discuss your specific requirements, whether it’s in relation to the property or about your stay in general, please do contact us using the Enquire page or please do give us a call for a chat.
