OWL BARN - IDYLLIC RURAL RETREAT IN OXFORDSHIRE COTSWOLDS

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday barn in Bampton - Owl Barn, Chimney Farm Barns.

Stunning barn conversion with luxurious accommodation, sleeps up to 12!

Owl Barn is one of three stunning and award winning conversions at Chimney Farm Barns. Situated right on the edge of Chimney Meadows Nature Reserve, Owl Barn enjoys uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. This spacious barn comfortably accommodates 10 people in 5 bedrooms (additional guests on enquiry). The magnificent open plan living area is appropriately furnished to ensure you and your guests can spread out, relax and enjoy your stay.

Upstairs, there are four double/twin bedrooms and three bathrooms, two of which are en-suite.

Downstairs you will find a fifth king/twin bedroom off the entrance hall. There is a seperate loo downstairs.

The ground floor is open plan, with the large kitchen area seperated from the living end by a huge table and chairs for 10-12 plus a second table for an additional 6.

A log burning stove makes a fabulous focal point, as well as keeping you and your party cosy and warm in cooler weather. Outside, Owl Barn enjoys oodles of private entertaining space.

There is a terrace with built-in barbecue plus additional Weber barbecue grill overlooking the nature reserve and lots of outdoor furniture - large tables plus seating for 12-14 - enabling you to bring your party outside.

There are two other barns in the same location so you may accommodate a larger group by booking either Rose Barn or Snipe Barn to accommodate between 18 and 26 people.

Owl Barn is ideal for families - we have high chairs and cots available for little ones. Bedrooms 1 and 4 are sufficiently spacious to add a camp bed in each and there is a sofa bed in the sitting area.

From the doorstep there are wonderful walks and circular cycle routes - more information can be found in Local Knowledge or at the Barn itself. Families, well behaved pets, walkers and cyclsts are all welcome at Chimney Farm Barns! We keep a good stock of local information to help you get the very best from your StayCotswold. See Local Knowledge section above.

Owl Barn can be booked with either Rose Barn or Snipe Barn to accommodate between 18 and 26 people.

All three barns can also be booked to accommodate 32-40 persons. We can find the perfect combination for you so do contact us for more details and availability across all three barns.

PERFECT

  • 5 out of 5
A group of 11 of us stayed for the weekend to celebrate the end of my sisters 'single' days. Owl Barn was beyond perfect. Enough beds for us all - no one on the floor! The huge tables inside and out were big enough for us all to eat together which was brilliant. We had a mini olympic games on the grounds which were amazing. My sister and some others went for a walk and said the surrounding area is gorgeous.
The barn is really spacious and even with 11 girls it didn't feel cramped at all - there was always enough room for people to do what they wanted. The bedrooms were nice sizes and the bathrooms were great - at one point all of them were being used at the same time and no one complained of any water pressure difference which was incredible.
The sitting area was huge - nice big sofas to relax on.
It was a brilliant stay - we couldn't have asked for more. THANK YOU!
