This beautifully restored semi detached barn conversion sleeps two people and is 300 years old, combining modern convenience with old world charm.

This lovely conversion is a 300-year old barn and is set in the grounds of a working fruit farm in Snitterfield village. The property has been lovingly restored to a very high standard and has managed to keep many of the original features, making this a dream holiday home. The living accommodation is open plan and has a well-equipped kitchen and dining area, a fabulous wooden floor and a cosy sitting area with a log effect fire.

The bedroom is a stunning galleried room with low exposed beams whilst the ground floor bathroom is a luxurious haven. Outside there is a shared front garden - ideal for relaxing with a good book or a barbecue. This is a wonderful place for a romantic break any time of year.


Sensational Cottage & Location
We stayed here on our 'mini-moon' just after we got married and we couldn't have picked anywhere better. This was perfect. The Hayloft had everything and more, overall the cottage was rather large, nice original features with brickworks and wooden beams, fully furnished kitchen, superb bathroom and the bedroom was lovely! A smashing touch was the complimentary Damson Jam and the fact the Hayloft was provided with DVDs and board games, we in particually enjoyed the Stratford-Upon-Avon edition of Monopoly. The Hayloft was excellent and just having this place would have been enough but you get much more. The location is fantastic, not bang in the middle of Stratford-Upon-Avon, just a few minutes outside, we enjoyed this as it meant the area was nice and peaceful, no cars flying past and the surrounding area was just nice countryside. Speaking of the surrounding area, this was picture perfect and lovely for a walk, the ground of the property was something else and whoever does the gardening deserves a medal its pristine, intact everything about this place is. Also if you enjoy fishing towards the end of the property is a lovely fishery, although I think this is separate but still lovely. The highlight for us was the hot tub looking across the country side, the view is spectacular and the indoor swimming pool, this was incredible, we used it every day, it was unreal! The owners were excellent and were very friendly, always on hand to help if needed. We were delighted we picked this for our 'mini-moon' and we most certainly will be returning in the future, do not hesitate to book this place!

Beautiful cottage amazing location!
Wow! I don't know where to start! A gorgeous cottage with probably the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. This cottage has absolutely everything you might need including a fully fitted kitchen, large bathroom and lots of storage space. The complimentary homemade damson jam is a lovely touch. The pool and hot tub are spotlessly clean and the views from the hot tub are stunning. It's in an incredibly romantic setting with beautiful walks. There's are great pub within walking distance. We went into Warwick the first night and Stratford the second and taxi fares were a reasonable £10-£15. I would definitely recommend a stay here.

Romantic break
My boyfriend and I really loved this barn conversion and sleeping up in the eves. We had the best nights' sleep ever during our stay, the king size bed was amazingly comfy! Everything was just like the pictures, we arrived to find a lovely vase of flowers, homemade bread and damson jam, which was a nice touch. Being sat in the hot tub with views of the countryside was just bliss, very peaceful. Though the swimming pool and hot tub were communal we were lucky enough to have them to ourselves. The only thing is that they are only in use during the day time, so some days we didn't make it back in time to take advantage of it. I'd recommend taking a dressing gown, towel and flip flops to walk round to the pool and hot tub, though there is a cubicle to get changed in. Also contrary to the pictures - no drinking in the hot tub! The owners were really friendly and came down to introduce themselves. We also had an email from them in advance which was really helpful and we worked out bike storage with them in advance. This is a great location for national trust properties, frisbee golf, and exploring Warwickshire and The Cotswolds. It is also walking distance to the pub in the village, though I'd recommend taking a torch at night!

Romantic and cosy
My husband and I just spent a magical Christmas at the hayloft. It has tons of character and is a really cosy cottage with plenty of mod cons. The bath is deep and spacious with plenty of hot water. The sofas are really comfortable as is the bed and due to plenty of radiators its easy to stay warm. The Hayloft is in a great location, nice and close to the Park and ride so access to Stratford is easy.

All was as we had expected; great location, fantastic hot tub, fantastic indoor pool with a beautiful view over the countryside and also very nice farm shop on site. We cant wait until our next short break; feel so relaxed. The owner was most helpful.
