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 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.

Lovely accommodation in a fantastic location. Newly refurbished to a high standard Stable Barn had everything we needed for a family of four. Bedrooms and living room were particularly comfortable and relaxing. Beautiful area for walks, with the river Avon 5 mins in one direction and the village pubs 5 mins in the other. Hosts were lovely and were Read morequick to assist with a couple of teething problems. Really enjoyed our stay. Hide

The Cotswolds is home to some of the most unspoilt, historic and famous villages in England. Its honey-coloured stone buildings provide a quintessential English charm found no-where else in the world and offer a plethora of welcoming pubs, tiny tearooms and quaint streets to explore.

Once described by William Morris as ‘the most beautiful village in England’, the chocolate box village of Bibury is one of England’s most iconic hamlets, home to the peaceful River Coln and some of the most photographed houses in the country. The famous Arlington Row is a sight to behold - this row of 14th century weaver’s cottages have been the foundation of Bibury for hundreds of years and is instantly recognisable as a symbol of the Cotswold District.

If you’re seeking a relaxing day of sightseeing, shopping and traditional tearooms, head to the charming town of Cirencester, once the second largest town in Roman Britain. Proclaiming the title "The Capital of the Cotswolds", its market square is dominated by the cathedral-like Parish Church of St. John Baptist (one of the largest in England) and can be easily reached from our self-catering accommodation in Bibury, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold.

The rolling Cotswolds countryside is never too far away from your cosy holiday cottage, so you can enjoy a variety of outdoor leisure pursuits including those at The Cotswold Waterpark. This popular tourist destination in Gloucestershire is home to 150 glorious lakes where angling, archery, wakeboarding, windsurfing, birdwatching and even rally driving can be experienced. On a balmy summers day, the Cotswold Country Park and Beach is the place to go, boasting the largest inland beach in the UK.

When it comes to attractions in the Cotswolds, visitors will be spoilt for choice. Grab a stylish bargain at Bicester shopping village, talk a walk on the wild side at Longleat Safari Park, experience a day at the races in Cheltenham, admire colourful blooms at Westonbirt Arboretum, keep the kids entertained at the Cotswolds Farm Park, take a tour around Gloucester Cathedral, and enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea at Blenheim Palace. That’s just for starters, there’s plenty more things to see and do in the Cotswolds and you will love them all! Our holiday homes in the Cotswolds are the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploration, why not have a browse?
