About Ben and Kate
We live in the beautiful little village of Delly End, about 10 minutes drive from Witney in West Oxfordshire. We have a smallholding on which we rear cattle, pigs, sheep and chickens. We also grow our own veg. We have 3 children (in their teens, at school and at Uni), 2 dogs and a couple of cats. We both work from home, but are separate to the barn and while we aim to be there if you need us, we give you space and quietness.
Ben and Kate purchased this Barn in 2005
Why Ben and Kate chose Hailey
We've lived in the main farmhouse for over a decade now and recently converted the ramshackle outer barns into a holiday property. We've been careful to retain the character of the barns with all the charm of the Cotswolds stone. The conversions are immaculate; Ben is a builder by profession and believes strongly in combining traditional materials and retaining the character of the original building, while also bringing modern comfort to the barn. It is light, airy, has bi-fold doors which lead out to a terrace, where - on warmer evenings - you can have a barbecue and a glass of wine. The garden looks over to the fields beyond.
What makes this Barn unique
Ben and Kate have recently built a swimming pond which will be accessible for their guests throughout the day. It is totally natural, no chlorine or chemicals. Refreshing and inviting on a warm, summer day. The location of the farm is perfect for those wanting a quiet retreat where they can walk, ride, bike, read, cook, eat and drink. There are a multitude of very good pubs and restaurants close by, as well as things and places to explore in the Cotswolds, Oxford and Woodstock nearby.

Family break in Cotswolds
Superb property, great location and ideal for a getaway
Lovely stay in the Cotswolds
Our family of four (2 adults and 2 teenage children) have just returned from a wonderful 4-night stay in Ben and Kate's converted barn. It was everything we hoped for and more. Beautiful property, very livable kitchen and den (complete with a wood-burning stove that kept us warm during the June cold spell!), and 3 bedrooms that allowed us all to sleep well after fun days exploring the Cotswolds. Ben and Kate were lovely to deal with, making check-in and check-out extremely easy, and letting us know that they were there for us, should we need anything to make us comfortable. Pictures are accurate; the place was so relaxing and beautiful. Although it was quite cold during our visit, we will always enjoy our (brief) dip in the natural pond (water temperature was 65 F at the time -- my daughter and I made memories for a lifetime!). The property was very convenient to all of our journeys into the Cotswolds, as well as to Oxford. Grocery stores were about 10 minutes away, and some restaurants were even closer. Overall, Ben and Kate's property made for a great place to stay and enjoy the English countryside. We know we have more of the world to see, but we also would very much love a return trip to this beautiful part of the UK (and would jump at the chance to stay in the this lovely property again!). Thank you, Ben and Kate, for opening up this property to us. We will always remember our time there, and truly appreciate your hospitality.
We could not have enjoyed our stay at Turley Farm more. We are a family of 4 (kids 12 and 14) and we could not have asked for a better experience. The farm allowed for just what we needed and had hoped for.
Ben and Kate were very welcoming. The property was absolutely beautiful as was the 'farm' house. We were only there two nights but wish we had been able to stay a week. We hope to return someday.
Thank you Ben and Kate!
Booked this as a place to stay with my bridesmaids the night before my wedding. Such a beautiful barn in even more beautiful surroundings. Kate was a great host. Would definitely come back to stay again.
Perfect place to relax
Ben and Kate are gracious hosts to this gorgeous property. The barn was comfortable and tastefully furnishes. My boys LOVED all the animals on the farm, especially the new puppies. Hope to come again!
More than home away from home....
Thank you, Kate and Ben.
We rented from May 6th and left today :-(
We had the most fabulous time at the mini barn. We loved the walks, the animals and the drives in the general area. Lots to do and see and we also enjoyed just hanging out in front of the fireplace reading and relaxing. Ultra great accommodations, shared with friends and family in the area. We hope to be back!

Most specific is the natural swimming pond we have on the farm. Built by Ben who lives at Turley Farm it is a total delight to swim in; no chlorine or chemicals and beautiful plants, bird life and dragon flies. So peaceful.
