In a mellowstone village with a jolly pub, a super raftered barn with generous touches. Friendly owners next door know the Cotswolds well...

Read guest comments

You are in the heart of a beautiful village – brimming with Cotswold stone walls, tiled roofs, hanging baskets, two churches, cricket ground and jolly pub. This converted 1651 barn shares the owners' drive; Karen and Paul, green-fingered, open their garden for cream teas in June. Step in to find ground-floor bedrooms, not huge but with thick mattresses and goose down, one with a charming wrought-iron bed, and super bathrooms with travertine floors and glass-tiled showers. More stylishness awaits at the top of the central spiral stair, where ancient oak beams support a large luminous living space of spotlit walls, wooden floors, charcoal sofas... and books, games, DVDs, freeview TV and wood-burner for cosy evenings in. To the side is the kitchen, a convivial space in which cooks can chop and stir; the round dining table with red chairs adds a bright note. Walks are marked and gloriously rural; Stratford (for theatres) and Cheltenham (festivals and races) are close. Karen, a keen runner and mountain biker, will help you plan routes, and Bredon Hill beckons between old thatched roofs – take time to discover more.

"This was our 4th visit with a 5th planned in December . We love this little gem it's a great place to stay with friends or family perfect for 2 couples or a family of 4. Furnished to high spec it's an entertaining barn with the open plan layout and log burner you don't want to leave it! The bedrooms are beautiful and beds and bedding so comfy and powerful showers and lovely bathrooms. The pub over the road is ideally located too and I would recommend for food if you fancy a meal out. Karen and Paul are perfect hosts . Thanks both, my parents loved the barn as much as we do xx"

"What a find the Old Post House Barn is. A real "home from home" everything you could possibly wish for in a holiday home is here and is it excellently located for all the Cotswolds has to offer. It's a really good base whether sight-seeing, walking or cycling. We brought our road bikes and headed east on the relative flat of the Vale of Evesham before heading up and down the more challenging hills of the Cotswolds & at the end of the ride we could safely leave our bikes indoors. Karen is very friendly, with lots of helpful advice when we needed it. We thoroughly recommend this place."

"I absolutely LOVED my stay at the barn. The bedrooms are huge with comfortable beds and bedding, spotless facilities, a spacious lounge and kitchen area upstairs. The facilities are modern but set within a rustic atmosphere so you definitely feel like you're living in luxury in the countryside! Can I move in? "

"I have stayed here 7/8 times and find it fantastic. Peaceful and beautiful countryside all around yet near to shopping, theatres nod the races. Walks are fantastic and history abounds. All available when you stay in this super comfortable and well equipped 16 cent.cottage. Even a little garden to sit and read or drink your cocktails. The owners are extremely helpful and every detail is taken care of. Don't feel like cooking? There is a pub opposite with good food every day. Perfect accommodation in this lovely village."

"An amazing find! We love everything about the barn. It's homely, beautifully finished and has super hosts who are very friendly. We've stayed a few times now and love arriving but not leaving. Perfect location for visiting some of the Cotswold villages too. Fab pub over the road that serves a delicious roast. Highly recommend a stay at the Old Post House"

"Cannot recommend The Old Post House Barn highly enough! We had a truly wonderful stay! The barn is beautifully done out and had everything we could possibly have wanted including a lovely welcome treat which was very much appreciated! Karen was super friendly and helpful from our first communication and made us feel very welcome. The village is gorgeous as are the surrounding villages. We enjoyed several lovely bike rides and visited lots of great local pubs! The pub opposite is great and we had a lovely meal there. Really looking forward to visiting again soon."

"I did stay in the barn in the back bedroom with the en suite bathroom. It was very well done. The bed was very comfortable and it was very quiet in that room. It was hot the summer I was there and the bedroom stayed nice and cool which made it easy to sleep. The shower was really good, spacious and lots of pressure. I used to live in the UK and having decent water pressure in a shower verged on the amazing. The WiFi worked in the barn, no dead spots. The upstairs was very nice, but I didn’t really spend much time there. pub across the street, the food is very good."
