Outside, there is a patio with furniture and off road parking for one car. Arles Barn truly is the perfect romantic retreat for couples exploring Gloucestershire and the Forest of Dean.


The details of the property, and the cozy feeling of the decor, despite being right next to a road we where amazed by how quiet the area is, very relaxing, the owners where very polite and great for local tips on places to visit and see.
Mr Dunn

A lovely location and stunning views from the cottage, windows and patio. There were plenty of great walks straight from the door and pubs within easy walking distance.
Mrs Sherred

A great place to stay, with really nice owners who were very helpful with places to visit etc. There was lots to see in the area and it was in walking distance to pubs and shop. The barn has been converted to a high specification and has everything you need, it was also very dog friendly.
Mrs Haigh

Visited with my wife and was blown away. This place was awesome. Many nice local pubs including the new Inn. Visit the Ostrich pub at Newlands as well and see the cathedral of the forest of Dean.

Accommodation was outstanding. Been to Gloucester before and really enjoyed the break. The host was awesome.
