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

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.
