The property

The Old Oak Tree Barn is an historic building with some outstanding views that make it a wonderful holiday cottage option.

Forming one half of the historic King John's Barn, once the rallying point for huntsmen coming from the nearby Wychwood Forest, "The Old Oak" is situated in a classic rural location near to the Cotswolds' villages of Shipton under Wychwood and Leafield - both within easy striking distance of Burford and Chipping Norton.

Inside, the property is absolutely spotless and clean it is furnished neatly and has a relaxing feel when you arrive.

Smaller than it's bigger brother The Gallery, it is just as appealing and comfortable.

On the ground floor is an open plan space with all of the main elements you would expect including a well kitted kitchen upstairs are two en-suite bedrooms - ideal for two couple if staying.

We've enjoyed promoting this barn for over 15 years and have had many, many happy customers.

We think you'll enjoy it too!This holiday cottage is likely to appeal to families looking to enjoy open space while having easy access to local amenities.

About the location


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.

Note: There is a refundable good housekeeping bond of £50 required either in advance or payable by cheque on arrival. Sofa bed available for extra guest for £40 per person, per week. Cot & High Chair available.
