About Sweethills Barn

Sweethills Barn was originally the Gamekeepers 'lookout' and retains its original oak beams, coupled with high ceilings creating a very spacious feel.

The open plan fully-fitted kitchen/dining area and sitting room give a wonderful feeling of togetherness and comfort. French doors open from the sitting room area to the garden making the most of the amazing countryside views. The bedroom is beautifully laid out and welcomes its guests to the upmost comfort.

Continue the romance into the private garden with seating and barbeque supplied, enjoy those lazy summer evenings appreciating the wonderful views on offer.
Sweethills Barn will provide you with many happy memories - We believe a marriage proposal was also made here recently...food for thought...!

As a gift from the owner, all visitors during the summer months will be able to enjoy watching polo with a complimentary membership to Cirencester Park Polo Club where top players (and the odd Prince or two!) take part in the most enthralling of equestrian sports. As members you will be able to park in the Members Enclosure and enjoy the Members Restaurant and Bar.
*Please note that this only applies during the polo season, which runs from approx. mid-May to mid-September.
