This newly converted former barn is a wonderful base for a couple looking to explore this scenic part of Oxfordshire, with great road networks giving you the option to explore many popular towns and villages such as Burford (12mls), Cirencester (19mls), Stow-on-the-Wold (22mls) and Cheltenham famous of course for horse racing and festivals (39mls). Nearby attractions well worth a visit include Buscot Park (4.5mls), Kelmscott Manor (6mls), Bushby Leaze Trout Fishery (7mls) and Chedworth Roman Villa (23mls). Popular local events include the world’s largest military air show at RAF Fairford (11mls) held annually over the third weekend in July, Blenheim Horse Trials (24mls) and Badminton (49mls) and the Cheltenham Racing Festival.

After driving down the off-road private lane and through the electric gate you arrive and park outside The Old Cart Shed before heading in through the front door. There is an entrance lobby with a shoe rack ideal for placing those hiking boots. Walk through into the spacious open plan lounge/kitchen/diner which has been lovingly converted with a social aspect in mind. The kitchen area has all you need for a real home away from home feel with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment and dishwasher and once you have lovingly prepared a hearty meal there is a dining table that can seat up to four people so plenty of room if you are hosting guests for dinner. The lounge area has a large comfortable sofa, a large Smart TV ideal for streaming services and the added benefit of a wood burner which will add ambiance and warmth to any cold, dark chilly evening, so relax and cosy up with a film of an evening. Upstairs you have a large king-size bedroom with ample storage space for your clothes or personal items and the owners have installed some Velux balcony windows which are superb to open up and perhaps take in the views of the countryside whilst you enjoy a morning coffee or an evening cocktail. The shower room with WC is next door to the bedroom.

Outside you have a patio and gravel area with garden furniture and a BBQ should you wish to soak up the sun and dine al-fresco style. There is private parking for up to two cars.

Lovely relaxing week exploring the area I grew up. The cottage was a brilliant base to do all the things we wanted to do and was a nice quiet spot to return to after a busy day out and about.

We had a lovely stay. Very cosy and clean. Andy and Tracey were on hand to answer any questions we had. Weather wasn't great, but we managed to get out walking every day. The porch area was a godsend for muddy boots and wet waterproofs. Walk into town only took 20mins, some nice pubs with good food. Plenty of closeby walks.

Happy days!! Absolutely lovely barn conversion. It wowed us completely when we went inside. Everything was amazingly clean and good high standard of facilities. Our little dog was safe in the enclosed garden. Controllable underfloor heating was lovely and the use of a WBS made it even cosier. Shower amazing...didn't want to get out. This is one of Read morethe best places we've ever stayed in and we've stayed in quite a few. We really want to go back asap as we felt completely relaxed. Credit to owners. Hide
