Come to a peaceful working farm and family home at the edge of the Cotswolds. Meet the resident horses, chickens, cats and dog or swim with dragonflies in the natural swimming pond – there’s a beautiful, airy barn hosting regular Pilates and yoga classes that you are welcome to join too.
From the apartment you have views of the pond and fields beyond. Friendly Kate and Ben live across the courtyard and will leave you with home-laid eggs and plenty of logs for the wood-burner; they’re generous and accommodating but will leave you in peace. If you’d like to stay as a party of eight the Bothy can be rented together with Little Barn.
Stroll over fields to the Royal Oak gastropub in Ramsden in about 20 minutes. The historic market town of Witney, which has shops, restaurants and supermarkets, is a ten-minute drive away or you can reach Oxford in three quarters of an hour.
