The
Experience

Along country lanes and surrounded by fields, this secluded farm is the perfect place for a group of family or friends wanting to get away from it all. The only noise you’ll hear will be birdsong and farm animals, perhaps the occasional whoop from someone splashing around in the natural swimming pond. Generous owners Ben and Kate, who transformed the property back into a working farm, live just across the farmyard and are on hand to help should you need it. Your 19th-century stone barn is simple, homely and stylish, with a light and airy open-plan living space, limestone flooring, African rugs and Ben’s artwork on the walls. The kitchen, its walls lined with open shelves, has everything you need and there’s space to eat inside and out. Upstairs, colourful cushions and throws make the bedrooms comfy and cosy and the en suite shower room and family bathroom are sleek and sparkling clean, with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Head out on excellent walking and cycle trails, take a trip to Shakespeare’s Stratford, or simply stay and lounge on the lawn, take a dip in the pond and warm up by the wood-burner.

Reviews

We absolutely loved our stay at the Little Barn. It was perfect in every way for our family of 4. The cottage was beautifully decorated and had every amenity that we could imagine needing. It was our first time traveling in the UK, outside of London, and we wish we had more time to explore the area. There was certainly plenty to do just a short drive away. It was also lovely just to walk around the footpaths between the farms and among the houses. Would love to go back in the summer months to take advantage of the natural swimming pool! The owners were very helpful, yet unobtrusive.

Local points of interest from Kate & Ben Brown

  • Walk straight out of the barn, down quiet roads and bridleways or head a mile and a half to Ramsden and dine at the classic village pub, The Royal Oak.
  • The historical city of Oxford - home to the Ashmolean, the Botanical Gardens, the Sheldonian and the city's beautiful Colleges - is only 12 miles away.
  • Other interesting sites include the fabulous Blenheim Palace (World Heritage Site) just 10 miles away and go west to Stratford if you're a Shakespeare fan.
  • On the farm Ben and Kate have concentrated on rearing rare breed livestock. They currently have Shorthorn and British White beef, Lleyn sheep and Berkshire pigs.
  • The farm is located in the Cotswolds and accessible to a plethora of beautiful villages, stunning countryside, as well as some top class restaurants and pubs, such as the Wild Rabbit and The Plough in Kingham.
  • Ben has recently finished building a natural swimming pond on the farm which is as near to Wild Swimming as it gets. Swim with the dragon flies and swallows swooping down on the water! Some of our braver guests bring wet suits during the cooler months.
