The Village Pub

Outside, baskets overflowing with colourful flowers hang from the Cotswold stone. Inside, flagstone floors, a crackling wood burner and wing-backed chairs set the scene for this rustic pub.
Rooms at The Village Pub
Six cosy and perfectly formed rooms follow a cool, chic theme with lovable touches such as Robert’s radios and retro telephones. You can also enjoy the added luxury of a rolltop bath in one of the rooms.

Tips from The Village Pub in Barnsley
The Village Pub is close to Bibury and Cirencester, Fairford and some of the best open Cotswold country. Depending on the season, expect to see wildflowers, hares and spectacular leaf colour.
Some of the best walks locally are alongside the slowly winding River Coln.
Barnsley Festival, held in May includes a rare chance to visit the gardens of Barnsley Park, Barnsley Arboretum and Barnsley House (the pub’s sister hotel nearby in the village).
Paddock Farm supplies The Village Pub’s butcher’s cuts. The bacon jam is a real crowd-pleaser and the veg is from Barnsley House’s plot.
Nearby Cirencester is an interesting place. It’s the spiritual capital of old-money Cotswolds with an impressive Roman history and arts and crafts shops.
Planning a celebration? Ask about the lovely (and rather hefty) party table, located right by Chef’s kitchen.
