Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday barn in Cirencester - Beautiful Cotswold Stone Barn Conversions With Stunning Panoramic Rural Views & Complete Peace
In 2007 two Cotswold barns, unused yet longing for a job, were lovingly converted into beautiful homes. And so now, in the middle of a working Cotswold Farm, the two properties act as gorgeously private destinations to visit. With 1 & 3 bedrooms respectively, (sleeping 2 or 6) Clover Barn & Keeper's Barn may be rented separately or together to make up a larger party. Close neighbours, but still private from each other, these two delightful conversions offer peace & rest to all who visit.
Clover Barn & Keeper's Barn are two idyllic properties nestled in the centre of a working dairy & arable Cotswold farm, (but not intrusively so!).
Thoughtfully converted from working buildings, (Clover used to house the farm's calves - & Keeper's was used by the estate gamekeeper) they both have retained many of their original features including gorgeous exposed oak beams, spacious high ceilings & extraordinary views as well as tranquil privacy.
Taken under new ownership in August 2013, these historic farm buildings boast all the mod cons needed to make the perfect holiday destination, including newly installed WiFi access, well equipped kitchens (brand new in December 2013), and wonderful accommodation.
The furniture and decorations have been personally chosen with huge care by the new owner The Countess Bathurst, as her one aim is that her guests feel as if the barns are truly 'homes from home'.
With cosy atmospheres and light airy surroundings, they've even had chandeliers recently installed, along with tasteful and colourful artwork.
And to make it easier for families who are travelling with little ones, a cot & high chair are also available for those who need them.
The Welcome Baskets are becoming legendary, they even include treats for the children & family dog, & a genuinely warm greeting awaits each & every guest.
Within easy access of nearby Cirencester and the stunning Cotswolds beyond, guests can explore the lovely countryside at their leisure.
Situated as the two barns are, within the heart of the Kemble Park Farm Estate, both properties enjoy unbroken views and fabulous privacy, they have enclosed south facing gardens, are dog friendly, have private parking & are perfect for families.
There are plenty of fabulous local pubs (and some even offer our guests special discounts!), and amazing walks to enjoy.
There is plenty to entertain and to see in the local area and, as a special gift from The Countess, guests will also enjoy free membership to the nearby Cirencester Park Polo Club (during the polo season) for the duration of their stay.
And even if these are not your first choice of things to do on holiday and all you want (and possibly need!) is some rest - then you can just sit, relax and enjoy the lovely views across the countryside.
