About East Barn

This exquisite barn conversion has been designed with a stylish interior and the layout creates a warm and relaxing environment to unwind in.

Even though you are in the middle of the South Gloucestershire countryside, arriving down country lanes and surrounded by rolling fields, you are in fact only a 20 minute drive from Bristol with its cosmopolitan lifestyle, festivals and the beautiful world heritage site of Bath.

At East Barn, you will find two cosy bedrooms both leading outside via french doors, a large open plan living/dining area upstairs with a delightful wood burner, as well as juliet balconies. You could not ask for more. To add to this perfect holiday retreat you will find two private courtyard gardens, use of a children's play area, and even a private picnic area by the river where you can go swimming in the mill pond.

It's a blissfully friendly yet busy environment, an ideal place for a family getaway in Gloucestershire, near Bristol.
