Cow Byre is part of a traditional courtyard development of five cottages, on the southern edge of the Cotswolds.

The cottages have been expertly converted from original farm buildings and are situated on a 370 acre working dairy farm. There is a variety of other animals (geese, sheep, pigs, hens, horse and pony) to interest children, who can be shown round the farm, and an abundance of wildlife. There are walks across the farm which includes bluebell woodland and a stretch of the River Avon. The cottages overlook the beautiful Avon Valley with magnificent, south facing views over rolling grassland, the Wiltshire Avon and beyond to the distant Marlborough Downs.

Other facilities

The services of a beautician (ideal for hen parties), offering facials, hairdressing, pedicures etc. and a personal trainer (aerobics) are also available (N.B. must be booked in advance).

Maunditts Park Farm Cottages can be booked jointly for larger parties. There are dining facilities for larger groups in Cow Byre, the largest of the cottages and a marquee for up to 30 guests can be hired for special occasions in the summer months.
