Renovated Barn On The Edge Of A Peaceful Cotswold Village



Updated: 21-Jul-2016
Barn Conversion in Stonesfield, Cotswolds, Oxfordshire - Ideal For Blenheim, Cotswolds, Woodstock, Oxford, Burford Etc

In a picturesque away from it all location, Laughton's Retreat has been recently converted to a thoughtful high standard. Quality furnishings and fittings with all mod-cons. Along with cosy underfloor heating throughout. The two bedrooms have the advantage of both having en-suite facilities. French doors open to a suntrap patio within a pleasant enclosed garden (furniture provided). Quietly situated on a small family farm (boasting a highly regarded farm shop), surrounded by fields, footpaths and bridleways with few disturbances in this expanse of countryside. Less than a mile to the local pub. All on one level lending itself well to those with limited mobility. Children are welcome. Well behaved dogs are welcome, however not in bedrooms. Secure off road car parking.

Lovely location, wonderful welcome pack, friendly landlady, sure, the house was a little worn, but so welcoming, we always felt like we were " coming home". Thanks Kate

Laughtons Lodge

Sadly we will not be returning or indeed able to recommend this property. We were very disappointed with the cleanliness and general upkeep. The carpets were filthy, the oven and barbecue were dirty, the shower room had established cobwebs and spiders. The garden was overgrown. The parasol was broken, we had to clean the garden table before we could use it, shaver sockets didn't work etc. The double bed we were expecting in the twin room was simply 2 single beds pushed together (although comfortable). The positives were a good welcome pack and the convenience of the farm shop. Investment is needed to bring this property up to the standard of its rivals. This property could be lovely but it certainly didn't feel like a home from home! Our holiday was saved by the lovely weather and wonderful countryside.

Had a wonderful cosy stay. Super for walks from the door,which the dog enjoyed just as much as us! Laughtons Retreat was just perfect for my mum who has limited mobility, with it being all on one level and the use of a walk in shower. Thank you so much for the amazing welcome pack,food was superb! We also recommend a trip to the farm shop opposite ...yum . Plan to visit again.
