Summary

There are four bedrooms and four bathrooms in the main house, plus two bedrooms and bathroom facilities in the cottage, with plenty of space in the house for everyone to relax in. Boasting a secluded location, with stunning countryside views, the property is surrounded by five acres of paddocks, and an acre of beautifully maintained gardens, with ample parking space on its gravel driveway.

The character of the property is complemented by its stylish decor and modern facilities, which include wireless internet access, two TVs with the basic Sky package, and a large, beautifully presented kitchen. The stunning gardens have a number of seating areas, plus a sandpit, trampoline and climbing frame for children.

Location

The Ox Barn sits peacefully in its large gardens, in the heart of the Cotswold countryside, a mile away from the picturesque village of Naunton. The River Windrush meanders peacefully through the village, which is home to a well-regarded country pub and a golf course, and has many beautiful walks and cycle rides right on its doorstep.

Alongside its lovely, rural location, Naunton is also close to the famous Cotswold towns of Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water, as well as to the Regency spa town of Cheltenham, with its extensive range of shopping and dining options, and lively calendar of events, including the famous horse racing festival every March. The acclaimed Soho Farmhouse member's club is a 35 minute drive away, and many other popular destinations are also within easy reach, including Oxford, Blenheim Palace and Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.
