Calcot Peak Barn is two miles from Northleach, a small town of historical interest, at the meeting point of the A429 Fosseway and the A40, and three miles from the picturesque village of Bibury, reputedly acknowledged by William Morris as 'the prettiest village in England'. The Barn is 9 miles from Cirencester; 15 miles from Cheltenham; 25 miles from Oxford; 30 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon. Many famous Cotswold villages are within twenty minutes by car such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, The Slaughters, The Swells, Great and Little Barrington, Moreton-in-Marsh etc. The famous gardens of Kiftsgate and Hidcote are about forty minutes away, not far from the delightful town of Chipping Campden. Westonbirt Arboretum is forty minutes to the South and Batsford Arboretum about twenty minutes North. Many interesting local gardens are open through the season.
Calcot Peak Barn is set just outside the Cotswold town of Northleach in Gloucestershire is located at an important
crossroads, just off the Roman road, the Fosse Way (A429) 8 miles north-east of Cirencester and 10 miles south-west of Stow-on-the-Wold, and about 7 miles from Burford which makes it a great location for exploring the whole Cotswolds area - let alone these places.
Northleach was at one time an important market town (you have to believe us, it is more a village than town!), celebrated throughout Europe as a major centre for the Cotswold wool trade! The fifteenth-century church of St Peter and St Paul, paid for by the wealthy wool merchants, was built with stone dug from the quarry in the town itself and what is now the Market Square. More recently the village has been used in a number of recent films, including the Casual Vacancy of 2015.
Perhaps the biggest draw to the village today, other than its beauty, however, is the outstanding pub The Wheatsheaf Inn which has won numerous awards and is, for good reason, amongst the best in the Cotswolds.
Less than 2 miles away, in the opposite direction, you have the historic village of Bibury, described by the artist and craftsman William Morris in the 19th century as the most beautiful village in England. You'll find the famous Arlington Row - cottages built in 1380 as a monastic wool store, and converted into weaver's cottages in the 17th century and today owned by the National Trust - they're amongst the most photographed buildings in the entire Cotswolds - possibly even England. In Bibury you will also find 2 hostelries - The Catherine Wheel and The Swan Hotel!
Burford and Cirencester are within 10/15mins drive - the former one of the most famous of Cotswolds locations with plenty to keep you occupied, while Cirencester is more of 'normal' town with an attractive centre, a wide range of shops and restaurants including supermarkets. It's huge church is well worth a visit.
