Property Information

Thorndale is an outstanding holiday cottage, providing luxury self catering accommodation in one of the prettiest Cotswolds' locations. Walk amongst the hills to the local pubs or watch famous racehorses train on the hills or simply sit in heavenly surroundings and do nothing - and just relax! Set on a farm which trains top class racehorses on the surrounding land we were simply gobsmacked at the location and accommodation on show. Inside the open plan living space downstairs and bedrooms upstairs have been designed and presented to an exceptional standard, with a real attention to detail and one fits the building beautifully. Oak flooring, huge oak trusses, a handmade kitchen and luxury bathrooms together ooze charm and appeal, while large, deep mattresses in inviting bedrooms ensure a good night's sleep. Two of the six bedrooms are located in a separate, private barn approx 12 paces from your front door (to the side in the picture). Together this is a perfect choice for a large group or family who looking to enjoy a quality holiday home in one of the finest Cotswolds areas. We absolutely loved it when we visited.

Map & Local Information

Rarely are you going to get such a stunning location! Situated on a farm which houses one Horse Racing's most famous and successful trainers, where you can literally sit and watch the horses training up and down 'the gallops' Thorndale Farm Barn is quite awe-inspiring with regards to its situation. The cute and historic village of Withington is just 2 miles up the lane, including the classic pub The Old Mill - it is about as picture postcard as you can imagine. A bracing walk to the pub.... of course.

Andoversford is about 1.5 miles away and is home to two pubs The Kilkenny (about 1.5m) and The Royal Oak. Each are recommended - which means you've got three pubs within a good walk or very short drive. For your general amenities Cheltenham is the best choice and is about 10 mins drive away. Cheltenham, renowned for its Regency style architecture, is also a thriving Cotswolds' hub with regular events across the town, including the very famous Literary Festival. For the determined shoppers, The Montpellier area is full of some good quality shops and cafes. Of course there is also a very active race calendar at the racecourse, including the famous Cheltenham Festival (March and November) home to the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Beyond the local area are many classic villages and places well worth a visit. Cirencester (described as the Capital of the Cotswolds!) is about 20 mins away and has a wealth of shops and restaurants and is definitely worth a visit. Just outside is the Cotswolds Water Park, a collection of hundreds of lakes of real beauty and nature and wildlife. You can walk for miles and likewise cycle. (You can of course do this in the area you're in but the are big hills around Withington!)

Northleach has the superb and award winning Wheatsheaf pub which is a must visit (about 10-15mins drive) it really is stunning. Burford, Stow on the Wold and Bourton on the Water are all within 30 mins max, so all in all this location really does have it all!

"The property is absolutely superb. Top quality in every way."
Star Star Star Star Star Mrs Bennett 2017-11-10
"Exceptional accommodation, superb views and beautiful surroundings."
Star Star Star Star Star Mrs Brew 2016-12-23
"The barn is beautiful, every room decorated to a high standard, with really wonderful furnishings and spotlessly clean. The host took the time to leave us a cake, and fill jugs of water with glasses in each bedroom which was a really nice touch. In terms of making us feel welcome, we cannot fault this place or the host and the little touches were greatly appreciated. We would absolutely return here and recommend this place to anyone looking at a group stay in the Cotswolds. The side cottage to sleep the extra 4 people is also just as nice as the main house, with beautiful decorations so its certainly not sub-standard compared to the main building. "
