Naunton, Bourton on the Water & surrounding area
Do you fancy being "to the Manor Born"? Well, Aylworth Granary Barn is every inch the glamourous rural retreat you could imagine, a delightful and attractive holiday home that sits in the grounds of a magnificent Manor across the driveway. Inside the barn is a large, vaulted living area with huge open fireplace and smart kitchen area. In addition there are two ensuite bathrooms making the property just as suitable for a family as it is for two sets of couples. Surrounding you are some outstanding gardens, which you are free to roam with countryside views spilling beyond the boundaries. Whether you choose to walk (for miles and miles) or simply lounge in the chairs you are in a stunning set up. If you fancy something a little more energetic then there is a tennis court too! With a country pub up the lane just over a mile away, you can even sample some local food and drink!

Places such as Bourton on the Water (about 10 mins) Stow on the Wold (12mins) are very easy to reach.
Nearby Naunton is a sleepy village nestling in the Windrush Valley. It is full of traditional cottages, has a lovely looking church and also enjoys a good local pub - The Black Horse, which is about a mile from your holiday home.
For the walkers, there are excellent, scenic walks from your door along the 'infant' River Windrush as it winds its way through the village. You will be treated to some delightful views of the surrounding countryside on these walks. For a gentle walk try Lower Slaughter and Upper Slaughter, hidden gems of the Cotswolds with plenty of photo oppourtunities.
Stow on the Wold is a approx 12 mins away, with its excellent array of shops, antique shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants making it ideal for a 'quick trip' while on holiday! In recent years there has been an evolution of top notch restaurants most of which can now be considered as very good.
