About The Owner

We live in Oxford, England with our two teenage sons. We moved back here after living for 5 years in Tenerife, where we renovated our property. We were only planning to go for 2 years!, but we loved the island so much, the fantastic climate, outdoor lifestyle, Spanish way of life and it was great for the kids who can now sail and surf.

The Barn is in the grounds of our own property. It is grade 2 listed and in the conservation area of the village. The house and barn were previously owned by Queens College and date back to the fifteenth Century.

It is a great place to live on a hill overlooking Oxford.

The Owner purchased this barn in 1998

Why The Owner chose Oxfordshire

We bought the farm house and barns as a renovation project. It was a challenge, liveable but in need of a lot of updating and the barns were original farm buildings with corrugated roofs! The area was perfect for us countryside but only 10/15 minutes from Oxford.

Beautiful location and excellent VRBO

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in May 2017 for 3 weeks and had a very wonderful time. Julie and her husband were attentive without intruding. The location requires a car but is glorious in the spring. Very quiet and relaxing with beautiful grounds. Pub next door will keep you happy. The apartment layout is best for a single person or a couple. Bathroom is small. Kitchenette is adequate for light cooking. Apartment is light, airy, clean, and very comfortable. Washer. No dryer but clothes-line outside. Wireless is excellent. I would DEFINITELY return for another stay.

Charming spot, convenient to Oxford city.

  • 5 of 5

Characterful, clean and charming in a peaceful location. Tasteful, comfortable decor and a very friendly owner. Nice to have access to the lovely garden too.

Wouldn't recommend it for older people because of the steep stairs down to the washroom in the middle of the night (!), but if that is not an issue for you, then we highly recommend this property.

Compact home from home

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed four night's stay at this well appointed Barn Conversion. The lounge area and mezzanine bed were extremely comfortable. Kitchen and shower room small but adequate. The added bonus was that we were able to use the owners' beautiful garden on this sunny weekend. It is well situated for the Park and Ride into Oxford and local amenities. Even has a good pub right next door, which we ate in on our first night.

excellent rental

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful location for a brief stay. Julie greeted us upon arrival and provided essentials in the kitchen. The barn is more spacious than the vrbo advert suggests, and it is very well appointed. A private parking spot is about 8 feet from the front door, and a lovely patio and garden are just outside glass double doors. There is a pub right nextdoor and a bus stop within a walk of perhaps 3 minutes. We hope to return to Hill Farm, and we strongly recommend it to other travelers.

Quiet and peaceful haven

  • 5 of 5

Excellent open plan accommodation in the quiet little village of Garsington with all the modern conveniences. The owner Julie was frendly and most helpful in giving us a few tips on places of interest. As mentioned by other guests, the provision of some groceries was a nice touch. Definitely reccomended

Fantabulous!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay. A cosy little space for the two of us in a brilliant setting. Julie was there to give us a warm welcome and the place had all we needed for a long weekend. The weather was great and we sat and ate breakfast on the patio. Will look to come back again.
