About Stewart & Andrea

Hi, We are Stewart & Andrea :) .. We own this gorgeous vacation/holiday home along with another home in Maui, Hawaii. Stewart was born & raised in England and Andrea was born & raised in Maui, Hawaii. We both love, each location and aspire to live on each side of the earth, 6 months out of the year, but we especially love this property and the English countryside that surrounds it. :) .. If you would like to view our Maui property, please go to

Stewart & Andrea purchased this barn in 2000

Why Stewart & Andrea chose Worcester

This property is 'Absolutely Gorgeous' .. Not only is the property itself gorgeous, but, the surrounding area is gorgeous too !! The property is located 1.5 miles off the narrow lane, down a farm track. Surrounded by farm land, countryside, woodland and walking paths, and within walking distance of 2 local pubs it's the perfect location to 'Get away from it all' and relax in the English Countryside, whilst not being far, from all modern convenience's, road systems and Birmingham International Airport !!

What makes this barn unique

The unique benefits of this property are it's rural location, nestled in a 17 century fully converted farm court yard, which was originally designed for farming practices using horse & cart.

Now In the court yard, are two converted hay barns, a converted grain storage barn, a converted granary, a converted utility barn and the converted milking parlor; Swallows Barn. All of the properties in the courtyard and privately owned, by super nice, friendly people, who usually organize an evening out at the local pub once a week, don't be surprised if you get an invite during your stay here :)

Birmingham International Airport is 32 miles away and on the main motorway system which is within 6 miles of Swallows Barn. Particular interest for guest's would be the central location, close to Stratford Upon Avon, the Cotswolds, Warwick Castle, to name a few plus, the property has all electrical hook ups for anything electrical which you may need to take with you from the States.
