Very Good 4/5 Score from 6 reviews

College Barn

Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome

An attractive, detached timbered and gabled barn set in extensive lawns, built just a few years ago as an oak frame barn of a traditional design. College Barn has considerable appeal with heaps of wood and timbers, a high vaulted ceiling and is very much of an open plan design which, combined with large areas of glass for natural lighting, creates a comfortable holiday home.

Glazed double doors at both the front and back of the barn with the front allowing easy access (wheelchair too); you enter into the very spacious sitting room that has a dining area and a lovely country style fitted kitchen. Well designed, wide door access into a double bedroom and en-suite wet room shower. The stairs lead to a fairly grand gallery landing! At the level of two huge chandeliers with a double bedroom (neatly curtained off) at one end and at the other, a single bedroom and a large bathroom. To one side of the landing is a dressing table and chest of drawers facing a second single bed, so plenty of space and storage.

Upper Denford is in an area of outstanding natural beauty between Watership Down to the south and The Ridgeway to the north in the Thames Valley. There is fishing available on the river Kennet and boat trips on the Kennet and Avon Canal from Newbury or Hungerford.

Hungerford is about 2 miles; noted for its antique shops and with a selection of individual shops as well as supermarkets, post office, etc. Newbury, 8 miles away, provides assorted shops, a market on Thursday and Saturday and, of course, is home to the well known race course. The Watermill Theatre at Newbury is charming.

This is a lovely setting, quiet, just a few neighbours and provides a good base for visits to the market town of Wantage (13 miles) or Oxford (25 miles). Just off the M4 junction 14 so ideally placed for days out to Windsor and Legoland, Bath and the West Country and The Cotswolds.

Ground floor Spacious open plan sitting/dining room with kitchen, double bedroom (suitable for a less-abled person) and en-suite wet room shower.

First floor Galleried accommodation with a double bedroom, single bedroom, family bathroom and second single bed tucked in the eaves.

The Central Southern England region

From Windsor to the Welsh Borders our area offers a taste of what was and what is...fabulous properties of historic and architectural interest that sit alongside pretty tea rooms, gastro pubs, shops, restaurants etc etc!

In a simply stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are the Cotswolds with the unique honey-coloured stone, ancient woodlands and miles of rolling hills and over 3,000 miles of public footpaths. The rivers Windrush and Coln trickle their way through some of the prettiest Cotswold towns and villages you will ever come across, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Bibury. Royal Berkshire and the Thames Valley are on the doorstep of the Capital. Stay in Windsor (with a royal neighbour!), be close to Henley-on-Thames famous for Henley Regatta or walk The Thames Path as the river meanders through rural villages, historic towns and peaceful water meadows before it reaches the Thames Barrier in the heart of London. From your 'own' front door you can explore the contrasts of Worcestershire, Herefordshire & Shropshire. Visit the theatres at Stratford-upon-Avon, walk the Ridgeway Path from the Thames in the west through to the atmospheric Chiltern Hills.

Our towns and villages optimise the English rural on the green, a glass of locally brewed beer, peace and quiet - lovely!


Upper Denford is a small rural hamlet in west Berkshire. The ancient town of Hungerford is just a few miles on the Kennet & Avon Canal from where you can take a boat trip for a lazy afternoon! Upper Denford is close to the M4 junction 14 so centrally located for visits to the west and east to Bath, Windsor and London are all easily accessible

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review, I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed. Thanks for the remedial action you took immediately following your discussions with the owner, he was most grateful. Since then and, prompted by your comments, I have personally been to the property and have conducted an in-depth inspection. I agree that there are areas of improvement, these are being addressed. I have also put forward several other ideas to the owner by way of some refurbishment following and continuing in a very busy season.
