    “An excellent cottage.”

    Clean, comfortable and well equipped. The downstairs bedroom with en suite facilities was ideal for my elderly father. The cottage is in a beautiful and quiet rural location but with easy access to all the main Cotswolds sites. It was a pleasure to sit outside on an evening watching the sun go down (the September weather was surprisingly good).

The property

The Gallery Barn sits at possibly the highests point in the Cotswolds!

How about that!?

Originally an historic barn that was a meeting point when the entire area was covered by the ancient Wychwood Forest - sadly hundreds of years ago - today this big barn is still a great meeting point but instead of for hunting (!!) it is ideal for a family or pair of couples.

The eye-catching living area with its vast floor-to-ceiling windows is a perfect spot to watch the world from.

The light literally floods in and makes the room truly special.

It is a spectacle to view the open countryside and village of Leafield in the distance from the sofa.

The barn is spotlessly clean and well appointed, with well equipped kitchen and two ensuite bedrooms, one on the ground floor and one upstairs.

If you love walking, this is a great base to launch from!

The owner is keen birdwatcher and you'll find some great guides to help you spot all manner of local songbirds which frequent the garden, beyond which are nothing but fields with sheep and lambs.This is brilliantly located for Burford, Stow on the Wold and Chipping Norton, and there are some superb pubs within a 5 - 10 min drive - The Swan in Ascott Under Wychwood and The Bull in Charlbury are especially recommended.

A great choice for a family, with or without your pooch!!

About the location

LEAFIELD

Witney 5 miles, Burford 6 miles, Stow on the Wold 13 miles, Oxford 19 miles

Leafield is centred round the ancient village Greens, common land now used as an area for children’s play and a site for fêtes. There was originally a pond on the north western part of the Greens, but it was filled in the late 1950s.

At the eastern end of the Greens is the village cross. Only the base remains of the original, the shaft having been destroyed by vandals around 1850. In 1873 the cross was restored to commemorate the inhabitants deliverance from smallpox.

Although the village was established by at least the 11th century, there are few medieval remains and these are limited to features in houses that were later extensively rebuilt. St Michael and All Angels’ church, built in 1859, is an outstanding example of the work of Sir George Gilbert Scott, though the previous chapels on the site date back to at least the fifteenth century. The picturesque school on the Greens was established in 1839 and has altered little over the past 100 years.

Nineteenth century Baptist and Primitive Methodist chapels have been converted into houses, as have three former inns, the smithy, the bakery, the butchers and other village shops of the nineteenth and early twentieth century.

Nowadays, and after being closed for a number of years, the village needs are served by The Fox, a traditional country pub, with the emphasis being very much on proper pub grub rather than fine dining!

Note: The property requires a refundable Good House Keeping Bond of £50 prior to your arrival.
1 dog welcome at £25
