This new barn conversion will please the most discerning visitor. It has recently received Gold Award and

5 star by Visit England and is simply breathtaking. It has a wonderful feel with stunning original beams mixed with contemporary features (like underfloor heating) including a fabulous open plan living space that is absolutely ideal for entertaining.

Set in peaceful hamlet of Doughton just 2 km from historic royal Tetbury you will find plenty to do and enjoy. We provide walking maps and advice, or you can simply relax in the huge sitting room by our lovely log fire.

-Having gathered your friends together why not book our local top class chef for that special celebration meal in the comfort of The Pantiles' huge living area.

Or try some of Tetbury or Malmesbury's many exciting bistros, restaurants and pubs.

-With an enclosed south- facing garden and barbecue facilities next to the ancient moat under Doughton's 17th century manor house, you will lose yourselves in time while on holiday here.

In the house we keep descriptions and maps of short and longer walks, whether across the fields to the local pub or, after a short drive, to gaze across the Severn estuary into Wales

The house is on a farm and separated from existing listed cotswold stone buildings by its own front garden to the north, and enclosed walled garden to the south. It looks over the ancient water moat after which 'Doughton' [old english for 'Duck Farm' ] was named.

The farm is part of stewardship schemes to encourage wildlife and there are singing birds in abundance, and, if you get up early, you could see deer, foxes and hares. We also have horses, pigs and egg-laying chickens.

Well behaved dogs are welcome at £30 per dog

The Central England/Cotswolds region

Tetbury is in the cotswold area of outstanding natural beauty and the landscape is a combination of rolling pasture land famous for its dry stone walls. The walls and roofs of barns and cottages have always been built with the local stone and, as a result, seem to grow out of the land.

There are stately homes to visit like Chavenage as well as pretty villages with rows of stone cottages like those in Minchinhampton, Easton grey or Tetbury's Chipping Steps. The famous Cotswold Way, a 5 day walking trail that passes within 7 miles of Tetbury, is quite stunning with its views over sheep- grazed valleys into villages like Uley and Horsley and eventually into the wonderful crescents and terraces of the Georgian city of Bath.

Cirencester

Beautiful buildings and farmland combine easily around these two 2 market towns which are less than 10 minutes from Doughton. 40 minutes away is either Bath, Bristol, or Cheltenham. Each very popular for shopping ,sight -seeing,concerts and theatre, but each also has something unique: Cheltenham, its famous racing festival in March, Bristol, the SS Great Britain and wonderful children's museums (@Bristol) and Bath, the newly refurbished Roman Baths and tea rooms made famous by Jane Austen's novels.

The National Arboretum at Westonbirt [3 mins drive] is a wonderful place to spend the day in every season of the year.

Visit the Abbey Gardens in Malmesbury, wonderful in late summer and autumn and the Badminton International Horse Trials[10 minutes drive] are held in the grounds of the Duke of Beaufort's well- run country estate, in May.

"A perfect "home from home" for a family wedding in Wapley."

The Pantiles was beautiful, spacious and airy, and perfect for us to base ourselves for my daughters wedding. We had plenty of room, and it was perfect inside and out. We had a wonderful time, and h… More

"Fantastic cottage providing excellent accomodation for large group"

The accomodation was of a very high standard and provided excellent space in both the 4 bedrooms and living room areas. We booked the cottage for a long weekend for a number of families with small children and the open plan layout downstairs was perfect for both adults and children alike. We holidayed in Feb when there was snow and the cottage and surrounding area was beautiful. Local fields also allowed some sledging for the children. The cottage has an open fire and provided a basket of logs, which was ample. The cottage was lovely and warm with underfloor heating in the living room areas downstairs. The owners were very friendly and even provided a very tasty homemade cake upon arrival. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

"Fantastic barn to catch up with friends or family"

9 of us recently stayed at The Pantiles. The barn is beautifully furnished and really welcoming. We were all very impressed with the decor and facilities. It is the perfect place for a large group of friends and would make an excellent choice for a family holiday. The location is fantastic also and the owners were very welcoming. We will probably all be back and would definitely recommend this property.

Thank you very much for your positive comments. we are glad you enjoyed your stay and would like to come back. We are keen to keep up the high standards you admired.

"A fantastically well-equipped, welcoming and wonderful place"

Finding a place to accommodate half a dozen families with kids aged 3 to 13 is not straightforward, finding somewhere they're all happy with is almost impossible. Twenty four years in and thirty-two properties down, we came across Doughton Barns and it's the only one to tick all the boxes for everyone: comfort, size, rooms, layout, cost, location, equipped kitchen, child-friendly, things-to-do, etc., even the weather! We've just had our second stay and everyone, young and older, loves the place and can't wait to get back.

Thank you very much for your super comments. It encourages us to keep it always as good.
