Property Description

Beautifully warm Cotswold stone on the outside, light and airy inside. The Barrel Store is an environmentally-minded hostel; built to rigorous environmental (Passivhaus) standards, we are an ultra-low energy building.

Our 14 rooms are well-appointed with beautiful craft features throughout. From locally-made warm woollen throws to wrap up in, to artisan-made chairs and light shades, this is a hostel which makes the most of its association with New Brewery Arts next door to create a hostel with a real difference.

We have a Community Room with self-catering kitchen, communal table and comfy chairs to relax in. You’ll have access to free wi-fi and a selection of games. Although we do not provide catering ourselves, we can provide you with contact details of outsider caterers if required; please ask us.

The Barrel Store is brilliantly located, right in the centre of Cirencester. All of the amenities you need and everything you’d expect of an historic market town are right on our doorstep, but quiet and peaceful with no through traffic to disturb you.

For visitors wishing to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty by car, cycle or walking, we are perfectly located. Cirencester is on national cycle network routes and walking trails, and we have we have lockable cycle stores allocated on a first come, first serve basis. If it's an activity holiday you're after, Cotswold Water Park is right around the corner with water skiing, sailing and a beach.

Looking for something a bit more leisurely? The Cotswolds has an enormous amount on offer. If you love heritage, there is an abundance of wonderful stately homes, manor houses, churches and museums to visit nearby. Or why not book a craft workshop for you and a few friends at New Brewery Arts and make a weekend of it? Go home with something you’ve made and a new skill.

Great place to stop for the night, just a bit bare and lots of slamming doors due to the design of the hostel- quiet after 10pm though!
