Lechlade, sitting on the edge of the southern Cotswolds, is a popular riverside market town that boasts many antiques shops, traditional pubs, a village store and a Christmas shop.

Excellent holiday base for families, loads of room to play and be kids.

What a find !!!! We visited the barns and stayed at the Smythy in OCT 2015. It was amazing. So relaxing, back to basics, fun, happy and just a perfect holiday. I would really highly recommend this holiday for anyone who has children. There was so much for them to do in a safe environment. The woods were amazing, the trampolines excellent and the fire pit where we roasted marshmallows most evening's after 6 was something my children will never forget. The sheep in the field kept us company whilst we sat round the open fire. Just a perfect holiday. Thanks Kirsty and Josh.

I would highly recommend this holiday location to anyone with young children. It was a holiday where the I pads actually came second to the swimming, the trampoline and roasting marshmallows over the fire pit. We had a fantastic time, it was brilliant.

Had a wonderful little stay in a lovely rural setting. The barn was cosy and warm, a great choice for a few old girly friends catching up. It was in easy distance to walks, tearooms, nature reserves and pubs. Would love to return with friends and the rest of our families next time (there was lots of play space for kids!)

A really lovely place to stay if you have youngish children! Lots for them to do, trampolines, tennis, swings, the friendly animals to meet, football, fishing and obviously the swimming pool, all in a quiet and very safe environment. This led to us being relaxed too which isn't always possible when you go somewhere new with 3 children aged 12, 11 and 9! The cottage itself had everything we needed for a week and the kids liked the loft style bedrooms especially. We will certainly look at staying in The Smythy again, as we had a wonderful week here and it was well priced for a family of 5. It was also our first time visiting this area but we will definitely come back as it's an incredibly beautiful part of the country.

Fantastic accommodation, especially for families. It was a great base for seeing local attractions but there was also lots to do on site. Will definitely be going back next year.

These photos provide indisputable proof of previous reviewers comments I.e. Dirt under beds Ridiculous dog bed provided for extra seating Heavily stained sofa Exposed wiring

The owner was friendly and helpful without always being present. We were able to relax and use the facilities in peace as there weren't many other guests.
