With the River Avon boarding the farmland, guests can benefit from private fishing rights or perhaps head to the nearby golfing range at Welford. For a relaxing day in the Cotswolds, the nearby beautiful Cotswold villages sit waiting to be discovered. Maybe enjoy a leisurely walk or hop on a bicycle to Shakespeare’s riverside town of Stratford-upon-Avon and ride along the towpath, stopping off for a bite to eat or a refreshing drink in one the many riverside pubs or cafes along the way. Whatever your interest, this is a superb location.

Arriving at the lovely farmhouse entrance door, you are invited into the cute hallway and downstairs WC, where you can conveniently store wet or muddy coats and wellies. Leading through to a beautiful spacious lounge/diner with beautiful high pitched ceilings, original oak beams and a prominent fireplace with gas-fired burner, inviting you to snuggle on the sofa by the fire with a captivating book or perhaps spoil yourself with a glass of wine or two. If you stay in for a meal, there is a fabulous fitted country kitchen with views out to the garden and bespoke oak cabinets that sit well with the oak dining table and chairs for two. Well-equipped including an electric oven with hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer and dishwasher to save washing the dishes. On the same floor, you will find a double bedroom with TV and ensuite bathroom with bath, shower cubicle, wash basin and WC.

This is a small converted barn, it has everything you need. On arrival there were the small items that were very welcome e.g. milk, sugar, tea, all cleaning products including dishwasher tablets and washing powder and softner, the property was spotlessly clean. We had a very warm welcome from Richard the owner and he gave us many tips for walks. WeRead more would book this property again. Hide
