Overview

About the property

Stay in our beautifully presented 2 bedroom spacious cottage in secluded gardens

Beautifully presented detached stone property tucked away in a peaceful position. Barn Owl Cottage is set in the large gardens of the owner's Grade 2 listed barn conversion. The holiday cottage is newly renovated and has comfortable, contemporary furnishings and fittings throughout.

The cottage is well equipped to a very high standard. An open plan kitchen/sitting room with flagged floors, electric woodburner, Smart TV and comfortable furniture overlooks the gardens.

The kitchen comprises an electric hob, oven and hood, integrated fridge with freezer compartment and soft close units. All the appliances and crockery are new this season.

Stairs lead on to a bright landing, an ideal place for a quiet read! There are two spacious bedrooms equipped with high quality bedding, one double room with king size bed, Smart TV and hanging space. The second large twin bedded room has a chest of drawers, TV point and chair. A modern shower room with basin, toilet and shaver point is also on the first floor.

There is a washing machine and Table tennis table in the garage.

To the rear of the cottage is a area with patio furniture, large lawns and parking.

The cottage is ideally located for visitors to the Royal International Air Tattoo and it is only a 8 minute walk to one of the main entrance gates. The air show is one of the UK's premier outdoor shows which takes place annually 8-10 July 2016. During the thrilling 7.5 hour flying displays visitors can see fast jets, giant transporters, historic aircraft and much more. Our proximity to the runway means we are able to see many of these flying displays without having to venture too far from home!

In the village we are lucky enough to have a typical Cotswold village pub, "The Old Spotted Cow" with its log fires, craft beers and delicious home made meals. This is situated only 300 meters away.

Marston Meysey is a sleepy, Cotswold village with its pub, church, village hall and pathways. The historic towns of Oxford, Bath, Cheltenham and Gloucester are all within a 45 minute drive. Closer to home are the wool towns of Fairford (5 minutes drive) and Cirencester (20 minutes drive) with their famous churches. Other picturesque local villages include Lechlade, Burford, Bibury, and Bourton-on-the-Water, to name but a few. The Cotswold Wildlife Park is 20 minutes drive. The Cotswold Water Parks are on the doorstep with 150 lakes. For those who enjoy the natural environment, there are 10 lakes of "special scientific interest". The remaining lakes offer activities for everyone, including wakeboarding, windsurfing, inflatable rides, water skiing, fishing, sailing, walking and cycling.

About Helen

We bought the Barn conversion as a 'big project' in 2011 after moving from Buckinghamshire. We have completed the barn and now fully renovated the outbuilding "the cottage". The properties are set in 1 acre of gardens, overlooking open fields.

Helen purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Helen chose Cotswold District

When we viewed this property back in 2010 we were certain this was our family home. The barn windows, the natural Cotswold stone and expansive gardens, made this property an idyllic location.

Marston Meysey is a charming village with the best tourist attractions of the region on our doorstep.

Beautiful, well maintained property in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place, excellent hosts, accessible to the Cotswolds and more. Local pub within a very short work that serves excellent food and good beer, but as described do book it ahead.

Many thanks to our hosts for making us very welcome.

Country village cottage in a beautiful garden

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is spacious, comfortable and very nicely decorated. It is well provisioned with lots of thoughtful touches. The garden is amazing with access at the back to paths for nice walks. A gorgeous peaceful spot for sitting out on summer evenings.

Lovely cottage with nice garden

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay at this cottage over the early May bank holiday weekend. The house is modern, well equipped and in excellent condition having been recently renovated to a high standard. We were lucky with the weather and got to enjoy the beautiful well-kept garden to the fullest whilst the trees were in bloom. The owners who live next door are friendly and helpful and our daughters had a great time playing with their cats and dogs. We would love to go back.

A lovely mix of traditional Cotswold cottage and modern open plan living. Warm and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A home from home with all the mod cons in a character property. Ideal for a family of 4 (or more?!) Relaxing and comfortable and ideal for winter snuggling up or summer with garden patio - would certainly revisit!
