Barn | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Gumstalls Barn is an extremely spacious holiday property set in classic rolling English countryside, with many features which we believe make it a very suitable family or small group get-together.
The barn, which sits in the grounds of the owner's home, has undergone a full refurbishment and yet the property retains character and appeal while having included a number of very beneficial features to make it an ideal rural retreat. Internally there is a very large open plan living space on the ground floor ideal for entertaining and 'spreading out', while outside there is a very large garden surrounding the holiday home overlooking nothing but fields. We are particularly taken by this holiday cottage as it offers real peace and yet great convenience should you wish to tour the Wye Valley, Forest of Dean, Cotswolds or even Wales. An excellent choice.
