What an incredible setting!
Hay Barn Cottage (4* Gold Award Rated) is located in a simply breathtaking spot where the views are outstanding.
In fact you can see why the Romans chose Coopers Hill on which to build one of their luxurious villas!
Surrounded by open fields and woodland, Hay Barn Cottage enjoys awesome views across the valley to the surrounding hills and the village of Witcombe below.
On a clear day you can even see the Welsh Mountains to the west.
Though not Roman, the cottage is well over 200 years old and is steeped in history with many of the old features visible giving the house a truly unique and charming feel.
Thick stone walls and massive oak beams are amazing!
The owners, who live on the farm, have ensured that the cottage is spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming and kitted out with all the main mod-cons to make your stay comfortable.
Outside there is a private garden, adjacent to surrounding fields, from where you can enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside and local wildlife.
