Description

The Tythe Barn, our smallest cottage, provides a cosy retreat for two, with truly rustic charm. It is medieval, a character split-level studio apartment set in the last bay of Owlpen's listed Barn, converted above the coach house in about 1700. With massive oak cruck beams and principal trusses (like 'A' frames) which date it to the 1450s, this historic building has been completely renovated in the same style as Owlpen's larger cottages.

INTERIOR
The open plan studio, light and spacious, has comfortable seating and a king-sized double bed, like a hotel suite.

Key Features
• Cosy retreat for two with rustic charm
• Historic building with original features
• Hotel suite style studio apartment
• Dog friendly
• Sleeps 2

Two steps lead up to the kitchenette and dining area with views towards the manor gardens and meadows. Adjacent is the bathroom, with sunken bath and handheld shower. The cottage is heated

Two steps lead up to the kitchenette and dining area with views towards the manor gardens and meadows. Adjacent is the bathroom, with sunken bath and handheld shower. The cottage is heated with storage heaters.

Outside there is a large private terrace with a small wrought iron table to enjoy a morning cup of coffee in the sunshine. The cottage is situated in the heart of Owlpen's valley, over the Estate Office and Cyder House restaurant.

The Tythe Barn is one of nine stunning cottages set in a private wooded valley on the edge of the Cotswold hills. Here a fairy-tale Cotswolds hamlet centres around a church, with the famous Tudor manor house of Owlpen and a selection of romantic cottages all set in a picturesque wooded valley. This valley has long been recognised as one of the most romantic places in England and provides guests with an exclusive and relaxing hideaway surrounded by private beech woods and hills. There are many miles of walks from a gentle stroll round the estate trails to a 20 mile trek along the Cotswolds Way.

Situated in the Royal Triangle in the heart of the Cotswolds hills the historic cities of Bath Cheltenham and Cirencester are all within an easy drive as are the cultural and scenic attractions of Oxford Blenheim Palace and Stratford Upon Avon which are popular day excursions. An ideal base for the Horse Trials at Badminton and Gatcombe Park and racing at Cheltenham. National Trusts Newark Park is a few miles away as well as many historic houses including Berkeley Castle, Chavenage House and Sudeley Castle. The choice of attractions and things to see and do is huge and you will need to return to see and explore it all.

Ample parking. Bed linen, towels and heating included. Wi-Fi is available. Regret no smoking.

The Cyder House restaurant on site can be pre-booked for groups of 15 people or more by prior arrangement.

The restaurant, manor house and cottages also adapt well as an unforgettable setting for weddings, gatherings of friends, meetings and corporate events.

Laundry service available (extra charge applies).
Short breaks.
Location: pub and shop, microbrewery and arts centre in the nearby village of Uley.

Location description from owner

The Cotswolds region

The Cotswolds are one of England's best known touring regions of picturesque hills, villages of honey-coloured limestone and scenic attractions. The magical deep wooded valley at Owlpen provides some of its most spectacular and characteristic scenery. This is Laure Lee country, situated in the Royal Triangle in the heart of the Cotswolds Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The historic cities of Bath, Cheltenham and Cirencester are all about 20 miles away; the famous sites of Oxford, Blenheim and Stratford-upon-Avon are popular day excursions. An ideal base for the Horse Trials at Badminton and Gatcombe Park, and racing at Cheltenham.

Whether your passion is the hamlets and drystone walls of the Cotswolds, prehistoric barrows, quiet lanes, antique shops, walking, Norman churches, gardens, good food and drink, visiting friends, or more likely a combination of these, the choice is wide and guests will barely scratch the surface during their stay.

Apart from the Cotswolds and their wool towns and villages, other touring regions include the Berkeley Vale, the Forest of Dean, the Wye Valley, the Welsh Marches, the Malverns, and the Thames Valley.

Historic houses, besides Owlpen itself, include Berkeley Castle, Chavenage House, Dyrham Park and Sudeley Castle. Within walking distance is Woodchester Mansion, an unfinished masterpiece of the Victorian age. Tourist attractions include the American Museum at Claverton Manor and the Roman Baths at Bath, Gloucester Cathedral, Westonbirt Arboretum and the Wildfowl Trust at Slimbridge. The National Trust's Newark Park, and Woodchester Mansion, are a longish walk, three or four miles away!

Gloucestershire is famous for its many gardens. They include Hidcote and Kiftsgate, Miserden Park, Painswick Rococo Garden, Rodmarton Manor, Barnsley House, Westbury-on-Severn and Highrove (five miles)--if you can get in!

The choice of attractions and things to see and do is huge and you will need to return many times to see and explore it all.

"Is this the most beautiful place in England?"--Fodor's Britain Guide

Tetbury

The Owlpen valley has long been recognised as one of the most romantic places in England. Today it provides guests with an exclusive and relaxing hideaway surrounded by private woods and hills and many miles of walks--from a gentle stroll round the estate trails to a 20 mile trek along the Cotswold Way.

There is a pub, village shop/ post office, micro-brewery and Prema arts centre in the nearby Cotswold village of Uley.
Boutiques and antique shops—some by Royal Appointment--are in Tetbury; supermarkets in the market towns of Nailsworth and Dursley.

Golf (Cotswold Edge, Stinchcombe, Minchinhampton), gliding, riding within three miles.

But many visitors never leave the peace and privacy of the Owlpen estate, with its miles of footpaths and 800-years of history.
