A beautiful barn conversion that retains much of its original charm and character whilst blending the contemporary, with links to London and Oxford, and Winchcombe just a short stroll away.

Winchcombe is a small town with a selection of period properties to admire and a handful of shops to browse, as well as tea rooms and pubs. There is so much to explore in the surrounding areas, from the vast Cleeve Common with its rare plants, to Belas Knap long barrow, Hailes Abbey, Stanway House, and Snowshill. Sudeley Castle is just a short walk across the fields, or take a 25-mile round-trip by steam train from Toddington. The family will love a visit to Cotswold Farm Park, home of Adam Henson, or the Regency spa town of Cheltenham is only seven miles away. Stratford and Oxford are within an hour's drive, and popular Cotswold towns Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water are within easy reach.

High ceilings and exposed beams give this barn conversion a sense of space and elegance as you enter the lounge. A piano sits in the corner and there is a selection of books and games to choose from, with comfortable soft furnishings to relax on, a TV/DVD for when you want to catch up on your favourite shows you’ve missed, and a gas fired remote control wood burner effect fire to keep everyone warm in winter. The beautifully fitted country-style kitchen is a large area, containing everything you might need during your stay, including an electric oven and gas hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. There is a separate utility room housing a washing machine and ironing facilities, and next to floor to ceiling windows is a dining table to seat up to six people looking out over the garden. One of the two bedrooms is located on the ground floor, with beautiful beams and a king-size bed, and the large wet room is also on the lower level, with a walk-in shower and WC. There are stairs leading to a mezzanine floor where there is a fold-out futon (a small 4ft double), and a TV for playing DVDs on (there is no aerial for this TV). The second bedroom has a super-king-size zip-and-link bed (can be made into twin singles on request at time of booking), and has a small en-suite WC.

Outside there is an enclosed garden with a large bench and a BBQ, perfect for dining on a summer’s evening whilst looking across at the surrounding countryside. There is also a garage and off-road parking.

It is a very comfortable and cosy cottage, well equipped and a real home from home. There are some practical touches like shopping bags and umbrella near the entrance and we liked the (faux, which is less trouble than the real thing on holiday) wood burner in the sitting room. The kitchen is extremely well thought out .The beds are very comfortableRead more and are super king size. You are surrounded by nature with sheep in the neighbouring field. Watch out for the white squirrel and pheasants. Hide

Magnificent setting. Beautiful landscapes with views and sheep nearby. Walking distance to Winchcombe town center, the Cottswold Way, and Sudeley castle. The Stancombe Barn has rustic beauty in the the Cottswold style and all the modern conveniences. A great place to relax, we loved it.

This barn is worth every penny. Peaceful location, surrounded by fields, sheep and an orchard. Lovely walks across the fields and a stroll to town. The barn is cosy and delightful. If you are lucky you may see the white squirrel we did, scurrying along the boundary fences, trees and hedges. I highly recommend Stancombe Barn.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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?
