A stylish open plan barn conversion, with gorgeous uninterrupted Cotswold countryside views.
It's in a private setting, perfect for couples or solo visitors.
Situated on the edge of a beautiful village, it's an ideal base for enjoying all the Cotswolds has to offer, including great walking and cycling, lovely country pubs and famous cultural/sporting events in nearby Cheltenham (@10 miles). Alternatively you can just relax, enjoy the scenery and do nothing at all.

The space
We are perched on top of a hill on the edge of a beautiful and typical Cotswold village in an area of outstanding natural beauty. At the top of our driveway, tucked away from the main house, is our barn. If you are looking for something a little bit different but with a modern feel, gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside and privacy, then this will be for you.
Our pool house was converted from a small stone barn and, as the name suggests, there is an outdoor pool and one side of the building looks out on to this (though it's only open June-August). The other side looks out on to uninterrupted views of magnificent rolling hills, complete with sheep, pheasants and birds of prey. Outdoor furniture is available.
Inside it's a little non-conventional, and is open plan, with a mezzanine bedroom area that has a huge gable-end window and an 11-rung wall-fixed ladder to get you up to it. Up there is a low-level double bed and a cargo net that pulls across the mezzanine opening for extra safety, if needed.
NB We are very sorry but this WON'T BE SUITABLE FOR ANYONE WHO CANNOT ABLY AND CONFIDENTLY USE A LADDER TO GO BOTH UP AND DOWN.
There is a separate toilet with a small hand basin and a walk-in overhead shower (please note no bath) with a connecting changing area where you can also store/hang things out of the way.
The main room is open plan and has a kitchen area with an island and seating for 6. It's well equipped and includes gas hob, electric oven, fridge with small freezer box, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and kettle (no washing machine/dryer).
There is a huge, very comfy corner sofa for relaxing and there's a TV with an Amazon Firestick with a small selection of channel apps including Netflix and Amazon Prime.
There is under floor heating throughout.
Please note WE DO NOT HAVE CURTAINS on the massive sliding doors on each side, however it is super-private where the barn is situated with no buildings overlooking it and no reason for anyone else to be near there. There are removable blackouts that can be used on the gable-end window on the mezzanine/bedroom level, for those who prefer less light when sleeping.
Outside there's a lovely deck and beyond the pool is a private garden area leading on to a paddock.
Wifi works very well, mobile not very well at all, though you can hook-up to the wifi and use wifi calling, if you have it and that works perfectly.

Other things to note
THERE IS NO SHOP AND NO PUB IN OUR VILLAGE.
The nearest shops are in Northleach @4 miles away where there is a small general store with cash point, bakery, butcher, post office and pharmacy. There is also a pub, wine bar and café. There are plenty of great places to eat and drink in the area if you don't fancy cooking yourself. There's also a brilliant large Coop in Bourton on the Water, @7 miles away.
All the main supermarkets are available in Cheltenham, about 15 minutes drive away. They all deliver here.
This is a fantastic area for things to do: all manner of water sports at the lakes near South Cerney, cycle paths in the Forest of Dean, history/archaeology at Chedworth Roman Villa and Sudeley Castle, also Warwick and Oxford are not far away. Equestrian events are very popular here too. There are plenty of fantastic walking/hiking routes to follow and this is a particularly popular part of the country for challenging, hilly bike rides.
WE HAVE A FOLDER FULL OF IDEAS FOR THINGS TO DO IN THE IMMEDIATE AND WIDER AREA, INCLUDING PUBS/RESTAURANTS, WALKS, CULTURAL AND HISTORICAL ACTIVITIES, CYCLING, WATER SPORTS ETC

Location

Cheltenham, England, United Kingdom

Our area is very beautiful, very green, very quiet and very rural. This makes for a relaxing and peaceful stay. It's also super-dark at night as we have no street lights.
If you are looking for night-life you'd have to go to Cheltenham (15 mins drive, cab possible with a bit of pre-planning).
Please note you will have to drive to get to a pub or shop.
