Statement for Sheepscombe Byre Holiday Cottage, Snowshill, Broadway
Sheepscombe Byre is a holiday cottage of a very high standard of accommodation. It is set on the edge of the well known Cotswold village of Snowshill. Sheepscombe Byre stands at the head of the beautiful Snowshill Valley. It has stunning views over Broadway & The Vale of Evesham.
Tim and Jacki Harrison, the owners, provided luxury B&B at their farmhouse for thirteen years, converting the cottage in 2013. Much of their farm can be seen from The Byre.
Jacki was trained in Hotel Management & Catering & has worked in many areas of the business including a period at the Royal Ballet School. She holds a variety of diplomas and certificates in hospitality and the unfailingly complimentary comments of her guests attest to the warmth of welcome that you will receive and the comfort of the home in which you will stay. Cooking is her passion: which is reflected in the design of Sheepscombe Byre’s kitchen.
Tim was a sheep farmer and has lived on this farm in Snowshill all of his life. Tim now arranges both personalised local Cotswold tours and organises tours all over England and Wales.
The working sheep farm is surrounded by beautiful countryside with spectacular and unsurpassed views. From the bedrooms long reaching views stretch with the eye not only over the village, but downhill to Broadway, the Vale of Evesham and beyond. There is sufficient accommodation for four people, in two rooms, providing a first class stay.
The village boasts the National Trust property, Snowshill Manor and a very good pub, which serves excellent meals both at lunchtime and during the evening. The village is a ten minute downhill walk from the accommodation, however, there is no pavement and the road is unlit.
Sheepscombe House and Byre are at the south-west end of the village of Snowshill, Worcestershire reached by a small road leading to the farmhouse.
