About the property

The Barn and Stables - a house that sleeps 8 guests in 4 bedrooms

Welcome to The Barn & Stables, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.



Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.

The Barn & Stables was built in the mid to late 18th century and was originally part of Denfurlong Farm, on the edge of the pretty village of Chedworth. This is an attractive Cotswold village, with old and modern Cotswold stone houses hugging the steep sides of a valley, which extends for almost two miles along a tributary of the beautiful River Coln. The village remains unspoilt and off the beaten track, close to Chedworth Roman Villa. Being in the heart of the Cotswolds, Chedworth is ideally located for exploring the entire region and beyond.

The present owners of The Barn & Stables have undertaken a stunning conversion of what were originally two properties into a spectacular and spacious individual house. The property retains many character features, including wooden beams, exposed stone walls and an “owl hole”, which allowed owls to enter the barn to deal with vermin. The period features are complemented by the house’s modern facilities, including TVs (one of which is a SMART TV), wireless internet, a DVD player, Bluetooth speakers, iPhone docking station and a well equipped kitchen.

The Barn & Stables sleeps up to eight people, in four bedrooms, with three en-suite bathrooms and a family bathroom. Most of the rooms in the property overlook the large, enclosed garden, beyond which are views out over open countryside. There is also ample off-street parking on the property's drive. The layout and location of the house makes The Barn & Stables an ideal retreat for families or a group of friends

House Rules

Booking and payment

Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.

For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.

All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.

Security deposits

A security deposit of £250 is payable, which is returned after the letting period, subject to an inspection of the property. For the avoidance of doubt, guests are requested to leave the property in a reasonable condition, consistent with the property's appearance upon arrival. In the event that the owners, or their appointed housekeepers, have to spend additional time tidying up after your departure, then the cost of this extra time may be deducted from your security deposit. The security deposit is payable prior to arrival at the property, via a bank transfer or a valid debit or credit card.


The maximum occupancy of The Barn & Stables, including its grounds, is eight guests, at any point in time. Please consult us prior to booking if you think that you may have more than 8 guests at the property at any point during your stay, as additional charges may apply. Over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges.


The Barn & Stables accepts one dog, at a cost of £25 per booking per dog.

For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure.

Bed linen and towels

Bed linen and towels are provided for guests.

Initial consumables

A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay.

Accessibility, health and safety

Although The Barn & Stables is an old, Grade II listed property, it has been refurbished to a very high modern standard and the ground floor bedroom and bathroom makes the property suitable for guests with limited mobility.

Those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the smoke alarms and could be at risk.


No smoking is permitted throughout The Barn & Stables.


In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas. The photos are provided as a guide only and the layout and furniture may change from time to time. If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Great venue for groups and multiple families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a wedding with 4 different families/ couples/ singles. It was a great house, big enough to keep everyone contain ed yet not on top of each other!

We stayed during the summer heatwave, so the house was extremely hot the first night having been locked all day, but the second night we left all the windows and doors open and it was perfectly fine. Next door to the property is a cafe and small shop which was perfect for coffee, getting some snacks and breakfast items and had great toys for the kids.

Chedworth is a gorgeous area, we had a great time.

Other Activities:

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England". The name Cotswold means "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides".

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Car: Chedworth is located approximately 1 mile away from the A429 (Fosse Way) and is easily accessed by car.

Train: The nearest railway station to Chedworth is Kemble (approximately 12 miles away), which has regular, direct services to London Paddington, with a typical journey time of less than 90 minutes. Kingham Station (approximately 17 miles away) also has regular, direct services to London Paddington, with a typical journey time of approximately 90 minutes.

Plane: Birmingham International Airport: 58 miles, approximately 75 minute drive; Heathrow International Airport: 75 miles, approximately 90 minute drive; Bristol International Airport: 58 miles, approximately 90 minute drive.
