Notgrove, Bourton on the Water & surrounding area
A truly unique self catering experience awaits at this stunning contemporary barn creation, set within the gorgeous Cotswolds hills. Walnut Barn is one of four large barns set on the edge of the Notgrove Manor Estate Farm all of which are awash with sunlight, space and excellent quality accommodation. Walnut Barn is the largest (just!) with an extra living room on top of all the creature comforts found at each of the Notgrove properties. The property is all located on the ground floor with everywhere very 'roomy' and spacious. The open plan living room area is a particular feature, but equally the second living room with its wood burning stove allows for a cosy hideaway if required. Four bedrooms with four bathrooms give this a real Five Star appeal, on top of which you've got a games room too - pool table, table tennis you name it! If you've come from an urban environment then this is heaven!

Set deep in Cotswolds' territory and surrounded by rolling hills and open countryside, this location is the perfect spot for all that is good and glorious about a UK and English holiday. A visit to Notgrove will (we're quite certain) leave you both recharged and relaxed in equal measure. The family have worked hard to create the perfect balance of a countryside idyll with farm animals, chickens, alpacas and you name it plus the chance to take the bikes to scoot around the local lanes (along with other activities to boot!) If you fancy doing nothing then you can go for gold... there's a pool table, table tennis table and table football within 10 yards in the Games Room. You can even get the local chef in to cook for you if you really want to go for it - in the terms of kicking back!
Notgrove is the place that time forgot - a few period cottages clustered around the Estate Manor and gorgeous fresh air everywhere - no time for the X Box here; leave the Wii at home!
If you bring the kids, the Cotswolds Farm Park owned by BBC Countryfile's Adam Henson is about 20 mins drive away, alternatively how about the famous Cotswold Wildlife Park at Burford (15 mins) There are plenty of other options.
If you fancy gastro pubs or simply the best in traditional local pubs, then you've got a huge choice. Try The Wheatsheaf at Northleach for the top end gastro experience, its about 7 mins in the car. The local pub in the village at Cold Aston (The PLough) was refurbished in 2013 and is proving very popular. You can walk across the fields to this pub. We could go on....
If you fancy a little retail therapy, then you've have a good selection - Montpellier in central Cheltenham is attractive (15 mins drive), Oxford is about 25 mins away, meanwhile the infamous Daylesford Country Store is a must visit for those looking for a slightly more expensive treat!!
In short there is something for absolutely everyone here
"Lovely area with fabulous accommodation well laid out and finished to a high standard, both inside the property and outside with the approach and the layout of the various properties "Ms Slater 2017-12-05
"A lovely, well laid-out barn with lots of space "Lawley 2017-08-31
"The barn was well equipped and spotlessly clean . It was a advantage to have a bathroom to each bedroom. This cottage was chosen as 4 bedrooms were required and was well suited to our needs. Your website was very easy to use and I need that as I cannot use the telephone as I am deaf. There is a lot to do in the area and we particularly liked Chastleton House and Snowshill Manor (both NT) For pubs we liked The Plough at Cold Aston and the Hollow Bottom both having good friendly service and good food at reasonable prices. Bourton on the water is nice but ruined by to many tourists. Lower Slaughter is worth a visit and has a nice tearoom at the Old Mill. "Atkinson
