    The house was very well furnished with good facilities and a kitchen well provided with cutlery, utensils, china etc., well up to 5* standard. The lighting in the kitchen was ceiling lights which cast ones shadow on the work surfaces, with no alternative lighting to give good vision. The same was true in the en suite with bath, where the sloping ceiling gave restricted headspace when getting in/out of the bath. We had not appreciated that the outside seating area could only be accessed from outside, making al fresco dining slightly awkward. Maybe it was mentioned and we missed it. Recycling and waste disposal instructions were confusing, with 2 separate sets of instructions that were quite different! We decided to use the coloured plastic bags left in the property, but noticed that none of the neighbours did the same. And the previous occupants had ignored any instructions to separate categories of recycling, which the dustmen seemed to accept!! These are not overly serious complaints, but since we had the impression that this was a recent conversion for renting out, the comments might help the owners to make The Granary even better than it already is. They are to be congratulated on a fine conversion of the building.

The property

The Granary is a typical Cotswolds property, that is very well suited to either a couples or a small family.

Located in the charming village of Nether Westcote, a village ideal for visiting the many honeypot places that this region is well known for - Burford, Stow on the Wold and Bourton on the Water and itself positioned in a glorious rural location.

Inside, the barn is an 'upside-down' home with the two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the ground floor, while upstairs is living area with great views across the village area plus a modern and stylish kitchen / diner.

That said, you may not do much cooking as the excellent Feathered Nest (pub) is a few hundred yards down the lane and one of the most popular pubs in the area - which enjoys spectacular views from the garden (http://www.thefeatherednestinn.co.uk) For those who like a little bit of exclusive shopping you can pop to Daylesford Organics in Kingham - one of the preeminent Cotswolds destinations!

About the location

BURFORD

Swinbrook 3.3 miles; Little Barrington 3.4 miles; Minster Lovell 6.1 miles.

Burford is possibly one of, if not THE most famous of the Cotswolds' locations. With its medieval bridge, old stone houses and attractive Tudor and Georgian frontages, Burford is justifiably one of the most picturesque towns in England. Often referred to as the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds', the town was originally a fortified Anglo-Saxon ford which later grew to be an important regional crossroads and wealthy wool town. Located mid way between Oxford and Cheltenham (25 mins each away) it is a little haven of history and beauty that many come to fall in love with when they visit.

The 16th century Tolsey building, once the meeting place for medieval merchants, now houses The Tolsey Museum, a delightful local museum illustrating the town's social and industrial past. The church is stunning, a real gem architecturally with many interesting memorials charting some of Burford's great families. There is also the signature, on the baptisimal font, of Antony Sedley, one of the Levellers besieged in the church in 1649 - three of the ringleaders were executed by Oliver Cromwell's men in the churchyard. History awaits!

With little changing over the centuries, Burford is now very popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping and antiques, and for the wide variety of places to eat, with restaurants, pubs and teashops. It is an ideal base for visiting The Cotswolds area as it is within easy driving distance of popular attractions such as Blenheim Palace, Sudley Castle, Warwick Castle and several National Trust Houses and Gardens. Bourton on the Water, Bibury, Cirencester and Stow on the Wold are all with 25 minutes from the property.
