The Old Barn is a lovely, converted Cotswold stone barn, peacefully located on a former farm, between the beautiful villages of Broadwell and The Oddingtons. The property is surrounded by glorious countryside and is close to the North Cotswold market towns of Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh, Bourton-on-the-Water and Chipping Norton, as well as being well placed for exploring the wider Cotswolds region and beyond.
The cottage has been lovingly converted from its origins as a barn and retains the original oak beams and Cotswold stone walls, which have been enhanced by oak floors and quality wooden furnishings. The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV with DVD player and a well presented kitchen.
The Old Barn sleeps a maximum of 5+2 people (one of the bedrooms contains two double beds – typically this room would sleep two guests, but it could sleep up to four), in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms. The property is primarily laid out on the ground floor, with just the master bedroom and en-suite bathroom on the first floor. There is a gravelled patio area outside the property and off street parking is available for two/three cars. The Old Barn is an ideal retreat for friends, couples or a family, looking for a peaceful getaway.
