This beautifully presented barn conversion is a perfect property and location for families or small groups to use when visiting the Cotswolds. Set on the edge of a hill just outside the beautiful village of Ascott, itself situated in the northern Cotswolds, WYTON'S PIECE is an immaculate and spacious holiday property that we loved when we inspected it. (Manor Cottages inspection August).
The barn is single storey barn with a very large, open plan living area which has an enormous sofa, wood burning stove and stunning views across the open fields.

The Central England/Cotswolds region
Welcome to the Manor Cottages Holiday Guide. We are privileged to cover some of England's finest countryside and locations and with so much to do while here, we wanted to take the opportunity to give you some basic information about the region and also some tips on what to do. Naturally there is much, much more to see and enjoy than we could possibly fit in here, but hopefully this will give you a flavour! For us a Cotswolds holiday cottage is about as traditional a cottage holiday as one could imagine or wish for. Although we are biased (as you'd expect) the honey coloured Cotswolds' cottages, the drystone walls, the rolling countryside, local pubs and inns and friendly locals together make the region one of the most idyllic in both the United Kingdom but also the world! Taking a Cotswolds holiday with Manor Cottages is likely to include the opportunity to visit famous cities such as Bath or Oxford along with many attractive towns like Cheltenham or Stratford upon Avon. And of course there are literally hundreds of picturesque villages from places like Burford, to Bibury to Castle Combe and Chipping Campden. Don't just take our word for it, look at our cottages and see for yourself, we really do have a cottage for everyone! Click Cotswolds Holiday to view.
The 'Drystone walls' are a particular feature of the Cotswolds, scattered everywhere in the fields of the region. it is believed that many of these were built in the 18th and 19th centuries, a matter of considerable skill as there is no cement to hold the walls together. They represent an important historical landscape and a major conservation feature – and are of course still used by farmers to enclose sheep and cattle.During the 13-15th centuries, the medieval period, the native Cotswold sheep were famous throughout Europe for their heavy fleeces and high quality of wool. Cotswold wool commanded a high price and the wealth generated by the wool trade enabled wealthy traders to leave their mark by building fine houses and wonderful churches, known as “wool churches”. Even today, the sight of sheep on the hillside is still one of the classic Cotswold images.
From our perspective, we are fortunate enough to have visited most villages across the Cotswolds. However, not all are well known, and today many still hold their secrets - examples such Naunton, Combe, or Winson are stunning but off the beaten track. Even the likes of Painswick, Biddestone or Winchcombe are have fabulous treats for those prepared to make more of their Cotswolds holiday. As we always say, if you're not sure ask the team where to go, we know this stunning region very well and believe that if you come once, you'll return and find something new each time! Well, we would say that wouldn't we!!
Ascott is an attractive hamlet situated on the norther edges of the Cotswolds in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', in the Warwickshire countryside close to the Oxfordshire border.The village is relatively unspoilt and has a lovely selection of period houses scattered arpound the lanes, in fact it's a delightful example of an 'olde England' village! The neighbouring village of Whichford, similarly pretty, has a good public house The Norman Knight - approx 1.5 miles away. Long Compton, also nearby, has a village shop. For local produce Wyatt's Farm Shop is within 3 miles and the popular Daylesford Organic Farm Shop is just 9 miles away from the village of Ascott. The local market towns of Shipston-on-Stour, Chipping Norton, Moreton-in-Marsh and Banbury are convenient for everyday requirements. Local leisure activities include golf at Tadmarton and Chipping Norton; racing at Stratford-upon-Avon, Cheltenham and Warwick; theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Chipping Norton. The area is well renowned for its country pursuits.
