Imagine a beautiful, listed, pale stone barn where doors are chunky, ceilings lofty, and everything sparkles.
This little corner of the Cotswolds stands apart from the crowds. A mile down the road is the hamlet of Curbridge, its ancient pub offering delicious food. Five minutes’ drive away is Witney, and, ten minutes the other way, the lovely wool town of Burford, “gateway to the Cotswolds.” Close too are Blenheim Palace, with 2,000 acres of parkland, and Sherborne Park Estate (NT), home to a 17th-century, deer-racing grandstand. For a family day out, the Cotswolds Farm Park is a 15-minute hop.
Stock up at the poshest farm shop in England, Daylesford Organic, 20 miles… and return to the lap of luxury. Find harmonious colours and heated floors, a glass-topped dining table, a vast fridge freezer, and fabulous flat screens in every room.
