About the property

The Granary - a cottage that sleeps 5 guests in 3 bedrooms

Welcome to The Granary, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.

Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.

The Granary is a lovely former farm building, which has stunning rural views and sits in the owners' extensive grounds, in the heart of the beautiful North Cotswold countryside. The cottage is located on the outskirts of the small, peaceful village of Great Wolford, and is also only a short drive or a lovely walk away from many of the famous North Cotswolds towns and villages, including Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden, Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water. The Granary is also well placed for exploring further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace and Oxford.

This traditional former granary benefits from picture postcard views across the fields of the beautiful church of St Michael and All Angels in Great Wolford, and the property itself contains lovely exposed oak beams, wooden floors and exposed Cotswold stone footings. The character of the recently refurbished cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV and a well presented kitchen.

The Granary sleeps a maximum of five people, in three bedrooms, with a family bathroom and separate WC. There is a lovely elevated deck attached to the property, as well as a separate private outdoor area, and guests also have access to the owners' beautiful extensive gardens. Off street parking is available outside the cottage. The Granary is perfect for a family, a couple or group of friends looking for a relaxing break in the heart of the Cotswold countryside.

House Rules

Booking and payment

Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.

For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.

All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.

Security deposits

Security deposits are not required (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions).


The maximum occupancy of the property is five guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than five guests at the property.

Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by one additional infant.


Up to two medium sized dogs are accepted, at a cost of £20 per booking per dog.

For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs do not go in bedrooms, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure.

Please note that the property is surrounded by farmland, which often contains livestock, and dogs should therefore generally be kept on a lead when outside. There is a fairly well enclosed paddock at the property that dogs can run around in, however it is possible that an unsupervised dog could get out onto either the road or into the fields bordering the paddock.

Bed linen and towels

Bed linen and towels are provided for guests.

Arrival and departure times

Arrival time is after 3pm and departure time is by 10am. Access is via a key safe, therefore it does not matter if you are arriving late at night.

Bedroom 2: Either a king size bed OR two 75cm wide single beds

Bedroom 3: Single bed


Family bathroom: Bath with overhead shower, and wash basin

Ground floor utility room: Toilet and wash basin

Services provided

The property has free wireless internet access, a Freeview TV with DVD player, and a Bluetooth radio and CD player.

There is no telephone at the property. Mobile phone reception is generally OK, typically being better outside the property than inside.


There is off street parking for two cars, with additional off street parking available upon request.


Where a letting exceeds nine nights, a mid-stay clean, bed linen and towel change may be included in the price. Please check with us to confirm. Additional housekeeping services may be available on request.

Child friendly facilities

A cot (without linen) and a high chair are available upon request.

Initial consumables

A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay.

Accessibility, health and safety

The property is laid out over two floors and there are steps from the raised decking area down to the garden, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the cottage in the event of an emergency.

The smoke detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.


No smoking is permitted throughout the property.


The property is located in the large grounds of the owners' house.


In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.

If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Beautiful place, relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend at the granary. The property is well equipped and you can see they have really spent a lot on this barn conversion with the finish being of a very high standard. The property is beautiful but the location is the real selling point. Stunning views over the surrounding countryside and it's so quiet. It really felt like you have escaped from the hustle and bustle of daily life

An idyllic rural home away from home

  • 5 of 5

A lovely property situated in a peaceful location away from the everyday hustle and bustle of life. The Granary offers all the comforts of home and is very well presented and welcoming.

The area is ideal for those who love rural life, beautiful scenery and tranquility. We loved watching the local wildlife including deer, owls and bats and the sheep in the Orchard were very friendly.

We enjoyed a great family day out at Warwick Castle (approximately 30 minutes by car).

Overall, we would highly recommend this property to both couples and families.

The one thing we would recommend would be to use the services of a supermarket delivery for convenience only.

Other Activities:

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England". The name Cotswold means "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides".

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Car: The Granary is easily accessed by car, being located two miles away from the A44 and three miles away from the A429 (Fosse Way), which are two of the main roads running through the North Cotswolds

Train: The nearest railway station to The Granary is Moreton-in-Marsh (approximately four miles away), which has regular, direct services to London Paddington, with a typical journey time of approximately 90 minutes

Plane: Birmingham International Airport: 39 miles, approximately 60 minute drive; Heathrow International Airport: 69 miles, approximately 90 minute drive.
