    “Lovely cottage at the end of a long driveway.”

    Has a private patio leading from the downstairs bedroom, well equipped with 4 chairs, folding table and a parasol. Only the cool wind stopped us from enjoying an outdoor breakfast, but we were joined by friends for a socially distanced get together and were outside for 5hrs, following the sun around onto the grassed area beyond the patio. Also enjoyed seeing a fox, hares and for longer periods Red Kites which came very close to the property. The open plan living room, dining area and kitchen ...

    Has a private patio leading from the downstairs bedroom, well equipped with 4 chairs, folding table and a parasol. Only the cool wind stopped us from enjoying an outdoor breakfast, but we were joined by friends for a socially distanced get together and were outside for 5hrs, following the sun around onto the grassed area beyond the patio. Also enjoyed seeing a fox, hares and for longer periods Red Kites which came very close to the property. The open plan living room, dining area and kitchen are on the 1st floor to make the most of the beautiful views. Very comfortable living room, well equipped kitchen, large dining table. The double and twin bedrooms, along with the bathroom are on the ground floor. Large shower and bath so have the option of a refreshing shower or a relaxing soak after a full day walking or enjoying the surrounding countryside and villages. Due to Covid restrictions we chose not to dine out in the evenings but there are some local pubs that look nice. We picked up keys from owner Karen at her property and she took us down to the property and waited outside whilst we had a look around so if we had any immediate queries she could answer them. We had no issues during our stay, but were confident that Karen was available if needed. We only stayed 3 nights this time but hope to return for longer soon. We couldn't fault this lovely cottage or the area it is in.

The property

Top Barn, so called because of it's 'top of the hill' location(!), unsurprisingly delivers quite spectacular views across the northern Cotswolds.

With grazing cattle often roaming the field in front completing the perfect English picture, this delightful and quirky barn conversion is an excellent retreat for families who fancy something a little different.

The owners (who have two other excellent cottages) have undertaken a labour of love to convert the old cart shed into a spacious holiday cottage presented in a 'reverse living' style, with the living spaces upstairs and bedrooms down - thank goodness they did as the views are amazing.

The bedrooms are pretty and comfortable, the living space very well appointed - together the house is very much a 'home from home' and one we certainly enjoyed on our visit.

If you're the lucky ones in the master bedroom then you've got the view up the valley that is likely to keep you in bed for a good while!Note: WIFI is basic and not suitable for streaming/downloading. Note: Top Barn and the adjoining property Wyton's Piece (988728) can together accommodate a group of up to 10.
