Further details outdoors

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.

The Oxfordshire 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.

Other places of interest are the classic old town of Burford and its legendary High St; Cotswold Wildlife Park, Bibury Trout Farm, Bicester Village for designer shopping, Chedworth Roman Villa, Cotswold Water Parks for waterskiing and fishing, Cogges Farm, Kelmscott Manor (former home of William Morris and founder of the Arts amnd Crafts Movement), and loads of gorgeous Cotswold villages including Stow in the Wold, Moreton on the Marsh, Bourton on the Water and the historic town of Witney.

Plus loads of pubs and restaurants in the area and opportunities for golf at Burford and Frilford Heath or fishing or walking.

"Lovely barn, beautiful setting"

Great barn for large groups, with lots of modern living and entertaining space. It was great venue to escape the hustle of London. Perfect for a hen do, would be fantastic for a new years eve weekend or birthday weekend with friends. The barn was very clean, with lots of seating, comfortable beds and plenty of space! The owners were very accommodating to all our requests too. Extra camp beds, extra chairs etc.

"Lovely barn"

We (x9) had a wonderful stay at Owl barn... Fergus and team were available to speak throughout the booking process and ensured everything was in place for our arrival. The barn was really well suited to our needs as well as clean, well located (but sufficiently rural) etc. Pictures don't do it justice! Would definitely stay again.

"Great accommodation in a fantastic location"

There were 18 of us that stayed in Owl and Rose barns in May for 3 nights. Owl barn is very spacious downstairs with a huge living and dining area which was more than comfortable to house all of us for evenings. There's plenty of parking space and even had the bonus of a sizable garden and seating outside where we were lucky enough to enjoy some of the warm weather. The location was perfect as people were travelling from all over and it's quite central for everywhere and there's some great walks, pubs and villages in the surrounding area to keep you entertained.

"Beautiful, clean and spacious!"

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!

"Perfect place for a large group of friends"

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. I would highly reccomend the Lamb at Buckland for lunch or dinner; the food was delicious and all locally sourced. We will definitely be staying again!

"Beautiful barn, piles of space and super comfy beds!"

We had a brilliant time at this gorgeous spacious and brilliantly well done barn. We particularly loved the enormous bunch of flowers and delicious cake on arrival! We'd definitely recommend this to anyone. Close enough to Oxford to go into town and explore but set in the gorgeous Cotswolds countryside with piles of space to play and explore. Brilliant.

"Loved it!"

We spent a long weekend at Snipe barn, 5 ladies and 9 (!) children! It was perfect for our needs, very well equipped and very comfortable. We will definitely be back!

"A fabulous venue for larger groups - Couldn't be better"

Owl Barn is a fabulous venue for a family party. The large open plan living/ dining/ Kitchen area means there is no seperating into small groups. There is plenty of space for 12 poeple and everything you could possibly need is provided. The accommodation is scrupulously clean, bright and tastefully furnished. The area is lovely with some great pubs/ restaurants near by ( although the barn itself is in a fairly isolated location but still only 1 mile from the village) The owners and the housekeeping staff are very helpful and I couldn't fault their service. I would definately use their company and this facility again.

"Perfect accomodation in a beautiful hideaway location!"

We hired all three barns for our Wedding Party to stay in over the weekend of our Wedding. We couldn't have been happier with the barns themselves, they were beautifully decorated, so spacious and everything we needed was there, even down to the BBQs and BBQ tools! Although the barns are not too far from Bampton which has a village shop etc (should you forget to bring a vital ingredient!), they are off the beaten track and therefore provide an beautiful, tranquil backdrop for a relaxing break and you really do feel at one with nature sitting outside, glass of wine in hand, listening to the local wildlife from surrounding nature reserves! As it's quite secluded and self contained, it's a very safe environment for children to run around and spend time outside without you feeling like you have to keep an eye on them all the time. We would thoroughly recommend these barns, whatever the occasion and we will always remember the happy times we had there!

"Brilliant Cottage"

Just spent a long weekend in Owl Barn. Everything was fantastic, the setting is great, even managed to watch a Barn Owl in broad daylight! Booking and check in was seamless, all in all I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this as a place to stay.
