The space

Come and stay in our Cotswold stone barn conversion, which is surrounded by nothing but fields and wildlife. No road noise, perfect peace ..... located in the heart of the countryside but close to the local village of Cherington with it's 13th century church, and the historic market town of Tetbury with its medieval market house, countless antique shops, numerous coffee shops, restaurants and .... the Highgrove shop!

The barn dates back to the early 1800's but was converted from farm use into a family home in the 1990's. The barn has oak doors throughout, exposed beams and stone walls, and a unique central hand built galleried oak staircase which took a craftsman joiner 9 months to complete!

Our guests have a bedroom with a separate bathroom inside the barn 'en famille'. This bright room features sloping ceilings with exposed beams and stonework and a long window overlooking the side gardens. The room has its own washbasin etc but its private bathroom, located across the central galleried landing, has a bath, wash basin and power shower (and a set of scales ....)

As a unique alternative, we have a very cosy, well insulated vintage shepherd's hut in a paddock very near the house (separately listed under Cotswolds Glamping), with a cosy 4' double bed, a small stove and candles for overnight illumination - plus electricity if needed !

Our guests live alongside us during their stay, but have privacy when they want it. The drawing room and dining room are available for guests and we will make tea or coffee on request. There are great walks nearby, including one which takes you down into the valley to Cherington Lake. Guests will be treated to an Aga-cooked English breakfast each morning. The house is well lived in, so other rooms can sometimes seem rather chaotic but they are full of character!

We have normal 'Freeview' television services (no satellite channels) in the drawing room, and WiFi broadband but owing to the distance from the telephone exchange internet access can be slow. Please note that the property is entirely no smoking and that we have 2 charming cats, one of which can do tricks .... they are only allowed in the kitchen and do not go into the the rest of the house.

Tetbury is about 5 minutes away and other towns including Cirencester, Cheltenham, Bath and Bristol are all within easy driving distance. The nearest train station is Kemble (10 minutes away) which is served from London Paddington in 75 minutes. Owing to the fairly remote location of the property we would recommend using a car unless you plan to stay put throughout your stay.

We can recommend plenty of local walking routes, pubs, restaurants and areas of historic interest. There are walks and concerts at Westonbirt Arboretum, polo at the Beaufort Polo Club and Cirencester Polo Club, flying at Kemble Airfield, watersports at the Cotswold Water Park, National Hunt racing at Cheltenham and Bath, motorsport at Castle Combe and wildlife at the Cotswold Wildlife Park (Burford) and Longleat. There is the Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust set up by the world renowned naturalist Sir Peter Scott and the wonderful Berkeley Castle.

So - come and stay!

Incredibly idyllic location within spirited, entertaining and caring hosts. Liz and John are class acts who look after all the important details. You will not regret your stay. Liz's breakfast table, in particular, is the sort of thing you hope for in an Airbnb but seldom find. T…
