Only three roads and ninety minutes from London, Barnsley house is perfectly placed for a weekend away.
Barnsley House is located in the center of the small and attractive Cotswold village of Barnsley on the B4425 (Cirencester to Bibury and Burford road), 4 miles north-east of Cirencester, only 90 minutes from West London, 60 minutes by train (Kemble) and one hour from the Midlands.
Carved in stone above the garden door is the date 1697 with the initials ?B.B.?. This stands for Brereton Bouchier, squire of Barnsley, who built the house of locally quarried Cotswold stone. Symmetrical, simple yet beautiful, it faces south-east, so has the the full benefit of the rising sun.
In the 1950?s Rosemary Verey began re-designing the garden and gradually transformed it into its present layout. The house and grounds gained international acclaim as a place of remarkable beauty, visited by garden lovers from around the world eager to discover for themselves this perfect example of the English country house and garden.
