Snipe Barn is situated on an old farm in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds and is set in private grounds of 15 acres overlooking a nature reserve. The barn is a delightful contemporary barn conversion that is simply ideal for groups of up to 12 persons in six fabulous bedrooms.

The old Cotswold stone wall enclosure and oak gates to the front of the property makes it a haven of tranquillity. The courtyard garden makes a wonderful entertaining and there is a Weber charcoal barbecue. The glass front to the property matches the light open plan interior and makes the most of the sun that streams into the living space. The feature fireplace with wood-burner, plasma TV, state of the art kitchen and very spacious bedroom accommodation all go towards making Snipe Barn irresistible.

It is a magical place for a family get together, relax and re-charge the batteries or have a party or reunion with friends. Nearby there is the famous Trout Pub at Tadpole Bridge which sits on the Thames Pathway - well worth a visit! Great walks and cycling are all around.

The Central England/Cotswolds region

Steeped in history, rich in heritage and awash with natural beauty, the Oxfordshire Cotswolds are a charming blend of bustling market towns, picturesque villages, breathtaking natural scenery and over 6,000 years of history.

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.

Located in the heart of England, the Oxfordshire Cotswolds is served by a comprehensive network of national and international road, rail and air links.

The Oxfordshire Cotswolds is served by excellent links to the A34 and M40, providing easy access to London, Birmingham and the remainder of the national motorway network.

Both London Heathrow and Birmingham International airports are within an hour's drive and can be reached by car, bus and rail.


Oxford and its wonderful University is only 12 miles away. Belenheim Palace is the fabulous home of the Churchill family and make a great day out for the whole family - both the palace and the gardens are well worth a visit.

"Fantastic Family Get-together Venue"

Snipe Barn is the ideal venue for friends and family who do not see each other regularly and want to catch up with each other, relax and have a great time. Lovely bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms, massive kitchen/ dining room, and large comfy lounge with big-screen telly (if you have time to watch it). Would recommend it every time and hope to return.

"Great weekend retreat in Oxfordshire"

We had a fantastic stay in Snipe Barn thoroughly enjoyed by a large group of us. The team were all very helpful with requests and helping out on local knowledge of cycle routes and pub recommendations. The barn was perfect for a large group of us and very comfortable.
I would definitely recommend to use in the future.

"Fantastic accommodation"

Snipe Barn was absolutely perfect for our group, which included three infants and 12 adults on a university reunion. The accommodation was beautiful and very modern, yet in keeping with the rustic feel of the barn. There was plenty of space for fun and relaxation in the living room and enormous kitchen/diner and all the bedrooms were comfortable (and some ridiculously spacious). The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this holiday rental!

"Comfortable and peaceful"

We found Snipe Barn to be a stylish and very well equipped property in a quiet rural location with plenty of space and with no access problems for the two of our teenage lads who are wheelchair users. In our dealings with the owner and his manager we found them to be professional, respectful and considerate. This property is an ideal rental for a relaxing get together break for family or friends.

"Fantastic, well-equipped house in quiet, peaceful location."

Three generations of our family stayed for 4 nights at Snipe Barn and had a wonderful time. The house was spacious, tastefully decorated, very well equipped and comfortable. Communal living areas easily accommodated 11 people and 2 large dogs, with room to spare. Great kitchen to cook in. All the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable with very nice bathrooms. The location was very quiet, with pleasant walks on the doorstep, and lots to see for nature lovers. We were close to plenty of things to do - Oxford, pretty Cotswold villages, houses and gardens to visit etc. We had a delicious lunch at The Trout pub not far away. Everyone was happy, from the 75 year old to the 4 year old. The dogs loved it too.
