Chimney Meadows is the largest nature reserve of the BBOWT (Berks, Bucks and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust). The site totals 250 hectares of wildlife rich land along the banks of the River Thames. This vast and tranquil area of fields, pastures and nationally acclaimed wildflower meadows is a vital refuge for wading birds. The reserve is of national importance for its species-rich wetland meadows that support large numbers of now scarce ground-nesting birds, and provides a haven for curlew, snipe and reed bunting. Nearby is the famous Trout Pub at Tadpole Bridge which is approximately a mile walk and well worth the journey, it sits on the Thames.

Whatever the time of year, the Oxfordshire Cotswolds offers a lively calendar of festivals and special events. As well as all the exciting large scale events, it's the smaller community events - the village fetes and fairs that seem to fill every summer weekend, the open gardens, local guided walks, exhibitions and performances by local groups that really give you a true feel of just what wonderfully rich experiences the area has to offer.
Walking, cycling, swimming, hot air ballooning, watersports, horse riding, shooting, fishing, golf - the list goes on! It's all here in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds and set against a backdrop of outstanding natural beauty.
From riverside strolls to more energetic hikes across the rolling countryside, there are more than 500 miles of footpaths to enjoy, including long distance trails like the Thames Path and the Oxfordshire Way.

We had a fantastic stay at Owl Barn. It was much larger than the photos suggest, clean and very comfortable.
There was plenty of room for our party of 11 and the kitchen was well equipped to cook and provide a buffet for a large party.
We were sad to leave and I will be trying to come back as soon as possible.
Highly recommend Owl Barn!

We had an amazing stay at Owl Barn recently with a group friends. The property is beautifully decorated and is perfectly equipped for a large group of people.
