Welcome to countryside bliss – The Cotswolds have been the setting of iconic locations such as Downton, in Downton Abbey, and now, it is the backdrop to your perfect holiday house staycation. Pretty little chocolate box towns, and rolling Oxfordshire hills surround our three converted barns, Roebuck’s Rose, The Lock Keepers Snipe and The Owl’s Barn. Whether you’re wandering along The Thames Path National Trail, which runs through the Chimney Meadows nature reserve or keeping an eye out for birds and wildlife that’ll turn up on your doorstep, there’s no need to venture far.
Sneak Peak – Within The Chimney Meadows Nature Reserve there are bird hides, specifically for catching a glimpse of the many wading birds that call the reserve home. See if you can spot all twelve of the resident birds such as the Pintail, the Sedge warbler and the more illusive Yellowhammer. The Chimney Meadows Nature Reserve is an ancient landscape developed over many hundreds of years and is an important area for wildlife. The birds and animals are so integral to the area that we had to name two of our barns, after the Snipe and the Barn Owl. Our perfectly converted barns are within The Chimney Meadows Nature Reserve along with 13 acres of ample agriculture.
