    “Stylish and well equipped.”

    Great shower. Comfortable beds. We loved the barn so much, despite the chilly bedrooms and shower/ bathrooms, we booked again as soon as we got home.

    Thanks for the great review really sorry about the bedroom being cold but it’s very hard to satisfy everyone on temperature so we try and keep it at ambient temp. If you contact us during your trip we can adjust it from the heating app on our phone. Glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back to the Cotswolds. Kim & Julian Property Owner

The property

Escape to a secluded sanctuary at this extraordinary renovated barn conversion, surrounded by 14 acres of magical orchards, woodland and a large lake within the owner's private grounds, an ideal getaway for families and their furry friends.

Drive down a sweeping driveway to the property, leading you through tall trees and winding paths to this hidden cottage, boasting a characterful forest green exterior and quaint flowering pots.

Feel the welcoming warmth of the underfloor heating on your toes the second you walk into the boot room, where you can kick off your muddy shoes after a day of exploring the woodlands.

Let your evening come to a close in the open-plan living area, a spacious room with natural light seeping through the patio doors, high sloping ceilings, and pretty exposed beams decorated with lush vines wrapped around.

Utilise the contemporary kitchen space, rustling up a delicious home-cooked meal while the complimentary jukebox plays an old school classic in the background, before changing it to a softer melody for a relaxing family dinner on the lovely dining table.

After dinner is over and the plates are set in the dishwasher, create a cosy atmosphere by lighting the welcoming woodburning stove as you settle on one of the delightful sofas and switch on an evening film.

A private patio space can be found throughout two large doors, an idyllic spot where you can enjoy the surrounding nature as you sip on a morning coffee, or delight in a romantic stargaze with a bottle of wine of a quiet evening.

Retire to one of the two stylish bedrooms after a tiring day, both offering attractive king-size beds with a TV and en-suite, however one of the rooms hosts a zip/link which can be changed to twins if needed, as well as a soothing slipper bath to unwind for an evening soak.

The cottage also benefits from a handy utility room equipped with storage space, a washing machine and a clothes airer for any dirty clothes.
