The Old Barn - Self catering holiday barn, Broadwell, Nr Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire, The Cotswolds, England - Sleeps 5
Sydenham Farm Cottages offers four tastefully newly renovated holiday barns that are located on a non-working farm between the lovely Cotswolds villages of Broadwell (one mile) and Oddington (just over one mile). They are also just a short distance from the popular historic market town of Stow-on-the-Wold (just over two and a half miles).
These fantastic honey coloured stone barn conversions are in the heart of the Cotswolds and offer a truly peaceful retreat, accessed along a sweeping driveway and set amongst beautiful countryside. Each barn benefits from having its own outside area where you can relax and dine al fresco or enjoy a cup of coffee in the sunshine. There is plenty of room for the children to let off steam, along with plenty of parking.
With a choice of four cottages, there is something to suit parties of two to five guests individually or larger parties if more than one cottage is hired at the same time. The cottages provide the perfect base from which to explore the Cotswolds either by foot or by car. Stow-on-the-Wold is only a short drive away with its shops, pubs, restaurants, bistros, deli, butcher, fashion boutiques, bakers, organic shop, chocolate shop and a Tesco on the outskirts of the town. The quintessential English villages of Kingham, Bledington, The Slaughters, Bourton-on-the-Water and The Swells are a short distance away and Broadway and Chipping Campden are too within easy reach - all regarded as some of the prettiest chocolate box village locations in the country!
Cheltenham and Oxford are within an hour where you can absorb some culture with the literary and jazz festivals, a theatre production or live screenings of opera from New York. The beautiful City of Bath also makes a fantastic day out, with its stunning architecture and Roman Spa Thermae. Another great adventure for the day, is to have morning coffee in Cirencester and head onto Tetbury for lunch and a stroll around, followed by a visit to Westonbirt Arboretum. Stratford-upon-Avon is just forty minutes by car with its great shops, restaurants and the wonderful new Shakespeare theatre. You can also visit many beautiful National Trust properties and gardens including Hidcote Manor, Blenheim Palace, Sudely Castle, Sherborne Estate, Chastleton House, Snowshill Manor and many more!

The Old Barn is a very spacious, light and airy holiday home that can sleep up to five guests in three bedrooms. It is exceptionally well-appointed throughout with wonderful feature oak beams and high ceilings, along with practical oak flooring.
You enter the cottage into the spacious family kitchen which is an ideal place to make breakfast and sit at the farm house table planning your days adventures. The kitchen is well equipped with a slim-line dishwasher and a washing machine and there is a lovely view from the sink which reaches out over the fields and beyond.
A couple of steps lead up to the sitting room which is impressive with a high ceiling and light filtering through from three elevations. There are large comfortable sofas, natural oak exposed beams, an electric wood effect fire and oak flooring.
Above the sitting room is an open mezzanine area which is reached by a fantastic open oak staircase, and here you will find the impressive master bedroom (made private by curtains) and en-suite shower room. This is a lovely light room in the roof eaves with oak beams. The shower room has a large double sized shower and large window providing nice views.
The other two bedrooms are on the ground floor beyond the kitchen. These bedrooms and the family bathroom can be closed off by the large solid oak door from the kitchen, allowing children to sleep quietly while you use the kitchen and the sitting room beyond.
The family bathroom is a generous size with a shower over the bath and natural light. Next door there is a single room with a high ceiling, oak beams and a conservation roof light. Further down the wide corridor is the twin bedroom which houses two double beds set up as twins - ideal for children to read their books or for a couple that like separate beds but with plenty of room. This room also has plenty of light with four conservation roof lights on both sides of the vaulted ceiling.
The Old Barn is a lovely spacious holiday home with great features. It is ideally laid out for a family with the addition of an outside seating area and wonderful views.
