Property code: 83007

This pretty red brick barn, perfect for a family or a group of friends, is finished with a contemporary twist and exploits a great Cotswolds location with easy access to the River Avon for fishing, canoeing and walking.

The traditional village of Eckington is situated on the Northwest side of Bredon Hill, an outcrop of the famous Cotswold hills, and is surrounded by the River Avon. Here you can leave the car behind as you are well served by foot, there is a well-stocked village store and two good pubs. You can embrace the outdoors with waymarked paths for both walking and cycling, follow the riverside walks from Strensham Lock or enjoy a day’s fishing on the River Avon, where canoes, kayaks and paddleboards can also be utilised. This area has a year-round events calendar: follow the Blossom Trail in springtime, the Asparagus Festival in the summer, and attend the Plum Festival in autumn. A paradise for walkers of all abilities and stamina (great for the kids) awaits as there is easy access to Bredon Hill, made famous by AE Houseman’s ‘A Shropshire Lad’, and also the Wychavon Way.

Situated within a peaceful country lane that offers access to the River Avon, step inside to the heart of country life with a modern twist. The barn welcomes you, a home from home with a cosy atmosphere and warm interior. The kitchen/diner is both spacious and well-furnished with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher. Family mealtimes and entertaining are encouraged on the large table and chairs for four. There is a utility room with WC and washing machine, great for cleaning off muddy pasw and shoes! For relaxing, fall into the spacious lounge where comfortable sofas allow you to kick off your shoes, sink back, and enjoy a good film on the TV or get together with one of the provided board games. And when the day is done you can climb the stairs onto the landing where you will find two perfectly sized bedrooms: a spacious king-size with exposed wooden beams and a generous twin room. There is a bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC.

Outside you can enjoy the views across the countryside in the private, self contained garden, the barn enjoys an enticing open courtyard area where you can enjoy entertaining with friends or cook alfresco with the family. There is a table and chairs with an umbrella for summer dining, along with a charcoal BBQ. For keen cyclists, there is secure storage for bikes and canoes. There is off-road parking for two cars.

Felt at home as soon as you walk through the door. Great location and will return in the summer when the river is lower. Lots of games and books left to entertain yourself with and Alistair was brilliant on the phone and we eat at all his recommended places that allowed doggies.

The cottage was perfect - lovely and comfortable with lots of nice little touches that made us feel very welcome and enhanced our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our break despite the flooding in the surrounding area which limited our dog walks slightly but we hope to go back when the weather's better!

We were really really pleased with this cottage. It was well furnished, absolutely spotless and had everything we needed. The garden was nice and secure for our dog. It is a perfect location for day trips to each of the Cotswolds villages. The local pubs which serve great food are only a 5 minute walk down the road. We will definitely be back.
