Barnsley House Gardens, Cirencester

Hidden away from it all on the edge of the beautiful Cotswolds is Barnsley House Gardens, an utterly gorgeous estate with pleasure grounds set on the outskirts to the market town of Circencester. The garden is world famous and designed by Rosemary Verey, plus you can dine at the ravishing The Potager restaurant or the cosy Village Pub and treat yourself to a luxury spa treatment in the 17th century country house.

During your boutique getaway to The Cotswolds, a day out in the countryside wouldn’t be complete without visiting Barnsley House Gardens. This stunning estate is renowned for its critically acclaimed gardens; consisting of pretty knot gardens, elegant Simon Verity statues, the Laburnum Walk and lovely ornamental fruit and vegetable gardens. Walk around at your leisure and enjoy the greenery or have a private tour conducted by Head Gardener Richard Gatenby. Have intimate tour with friends and family and have a choice of afternoon tea or two or three course lunch at either the Village Pub or The Potager restaurant.

The Village pub is a stroll away from the Barnsley House and a part of the same team. Boasting cosy interiors, a roaring fire and a relaxed atmosphere, you can enjoy a traditional pub favourite and a pint amongst friendly staff and smiling faces. For a fine dining experience, you can enjoy a delicious and delicate meal at The Potager. Though exuding sophistication, this lovely restaurant is incredibly relaxing and welcoming and makes the most from the fresh and seasonal produce foraged for the kitchen garden.

As well as indulging in a scrumptious feast, you can also treat yourself to a bespoke package at the onsite Barnsley Spa & Skincare Centre. There are a range of treatments which you can make the most of from facials to massages, plus you have access to the steam room, sauna and a heavenly heated outdoor hydrotherapy pool. The spa is in a perfectly secluded spot, away from the hustle and bustle, so you can guarantee an oasis of relaxation in complete peace and quiet.

If you want to make your luxury getaway to the Cotswolds a special one, visit the exquisite Barnsley House Gardens for your very own private tour around the enchanting gardens, a perfectly cooked meal in either a fine dining restaurant or atmospheric pub or perhaps even spoil yourself and that special someone with a personalised spa package.
