The Barn & Stables was built in the mid to late 18th century and was originally part of Denfurlong Farm. The present owners have undertaken a stunning conversion of what were originally two properties into a spectacular and spacious individual house. The property retains many character features, including wooden beams, exposed stone walls and an “owl hole”, which allowed owls to enter the barn to deal with vermin. The period features are complemented by the house's modern facilities, including three Freeview TVs, a DVD player, an iPad/iPhone/iPod docking station, iPod docks in every bedroom and a well equipped kitchen. Most of the rooms in the property overlook the large, enclosed garden, beyond which are views out over open countryside. The layout of the house makes The Barn & Stables an ideal retreat for families or a group of friends.

The Central England/Cotswolds region
The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England". The name Cotswold means "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides".
The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
Cotswold towns include Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud and Winchcombe. The town of Chipping Campden is notable for being the home of the Arts and Crafts movement, founded by William Morris at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. William Morris lived occasionally in Broadway Tower, a folly, now part of a country park. Chipping Campden is also known for the annual Cotswold Olimpick Games, a celebration of sports and games dating back to the early 17th century.
The Cotswolds is the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales. Whilst the beauty of the Cotswold AONB is intertwined with the villages that seem to almost grow out of the landscape, the Cotswolds were primarily designated as an AONB for the rare limestone grassland habitats as well as the old growth beech woodlands that typify the area. These habitat areas are also the last refuge for many other flora and fauna with some so endangered they are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. The uniqueness and value of the Cotswolds is engendered in the fact that five European Special Areas of Conservation, three National Nature Reserves and over 80 Sites of Special Scientific Interest are contained within the Cotswold AONB.
The village of Chedworth is in the County of Gloucestershire, seven miles from Cirencester, five miles from Northleach and eleven miles from Cheltenham. It is close to the Roman Fosse Way and is roughly 600 feet above sea level. Chedworth is an attractive Cotswold village, with old and modern Cotswold stone houses hugging the steep sides of the valley, which extends for almost two miles along a tributary of the River Coln. The village remains unspoilt and off the beaten track, with the exception of the famous Chedworth Roman Villa, which is less than a mile from the village, as the crow flies, but approximately five miles away by road.
Chedworth is a thriving community and has a pub, church, village school and a wide range of clubs and societies.
The area around Chedworth is renowned for its beautiful scenery, in particular the Coln Valley, and there are numerous public footpaths and trails accessible from the village.
Food & drink
There are a number of places to eat and drink within a relatively short walk of The Barn & Stables:

There are many excellent places to eat and drink in the wider Central Cotswolds area, with the major towns of Cirencester, Cheltenham, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, Northleach and Burford containing a wide variety of tea shops, pubs and restaurants, catering for most tastes and budgets. There are also a lot of traditional, high quality, Cotswold pubs located in the lovely villages throughout the Central Cotswolds.

"Like something from MTV Cribs!"
We stayed with family at the Barn and Stables in August and were just blown away by how fabulous it is!
Our whole booking process through Character Cottages was seamless and couldn't have been easier.
We all had our own bedrooms and bathrooms, each one being very comfortable, well planned and full of character.
There is a farm shop right next door which is fantastic and a lovely outside space to relax in. The kitchen was very well equipped with all the mod cons but with a country cottage feel.
We loved our stay so much that we can't wait to go back again!
We would thoroughly recommend this charming, spacious, modern, clean and quiet accommodation.

The cottage was beautiful and spacious and was ideal for our family weekend. Having the ground floor bedroom was ideal for our elderly parents. We found the local pub great for food and we passed a few hours at the local attractions. Would and have the commended it to our friends.
