Overview

About the property

Stay in our beautifully presented 2 bedroom spacious cottage in secluded gardens

Beautifully presented detached stone property tucked away in a peaceful position. Barn Owl Cottage is set in the large gardens of the owner's Grade 2 listed barn conversion. The holiday cottage is newly renovated and has comfortable, contemporary furnishings and fittings throughout.

The cottage is well equipped to a very high standard. An open plan kitchen/sitting room with flagged floors, electric woodburner, Smart TV and comfortable furniture overlooks the gardens.

The kitchen comprises an electric hob, oven and hood, integrated fridge with freezer compartment and soft close units. All the appliances and crockery are new this season.

Stairs lead on to a bright landing, an ideal place for a quiet read! There are two spacious bedrooms equipped with high quality bedding, one double room with king size bed, Smart TV and hanging space. The second large twin bedded room has a chest of drawers, TV point and chair. A modern shower room with basin, toilet and shaver point is also on the first floor.

There is a washing machine and Table tennis table in the garage.

To the rear of the cottage is a area with patio furniture, large lawns and parking.

The cottage is ideally located for visitors to the Royal International Air Tattoo and it is only a 8 minute walk to one of the main entrance gates. The air show is one of the UK's premier outdoor shows which takes place annually 8-10 July 2016. During the thrilling 7.5 hour flying displays visitors can see fast jets, giant transporters, historic aircraft and much more. Our proximity to the runway means we are able to see many of these flying displays without having to venture too far from home!

In the village we are lucky enough to have a typical Cotswold village pub, "The Old Spotted Cow" with its log fires, craft beers and delicious home made meals. This is situated only 300 meters away.

Marston Meysey is a sleepy, Cotswold village with its pub, church, village hall and pathways. The historic towns of Oxford, Bath, Cheltenham and Gloucester are all within a 45 minute drive. Closer to home are the wool towns of Fairford (5 minutes drive) and Cirencester (20 minutes drive) with their famous churches. Other picturesque local villages include Lechlade, Burford, Bibury, and Bourton-on-the-Water, to name but a few. The Cotswold Wildlife Park is 20 minutes drive. The Cotswold Water Parks are on the doorstep with 150 lakes. For those who enjoy the natural environment, there are 10 lakes of "special scientific interest". The remaining lakes offer activities for everyone, including wakeboarding, windsurfing, inflatable rides, water skiing, fishing, sailing, walking and cycling.

About Helen

We bought the Barn conversion as a 'big project' in 2011 after moving from Buckinghamshire. We have completed the barn and now fully renovated the outbuilding "the cottage". The properties are set in 1 acre of gardens, overlooking open fields.

Helen purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Helen chose Cotswold District

When we viewed this property back in 2010 we were certain this was our family home. The barn windows, the natural Cotswold stone and expansive gardens, made this property an idyllic location.

Marston Meysey is a charming village with the best tourist attractions of the region on our doorstep.

Lovely little cottage in a convenient location to explore the Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well kept, clean and furnished cottage. Helen and her Husband were very friendly and provided some good recommendations to explore the surrounding area. The old Spotted Cow (right next door)is a great place to dine. As a family with two young children, we felt very comfortable at the cottage and would highly recommend it to others.

2nd visit to this lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to the cottage and it was just as lovely as the first time. The cottage is beautifully laid out, with a stunning garden and patio for our own use. Helen is a great hostess;

from leaving the lights on for us (as we weren't arriving until very late in the evening) and a pint of milk in the fridge, to recommendations on where to eat and providing us with tomatoes and plums from her garden. We would happily return again next year!

Beautiful house in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The house was gorgeous, modern with character. Good position for getting about too. Would recommend eating at the Toro Lounge in Cirencester, but avoid the Old Boat House, was very plain.

Would definitely recommend the cottage, sorry about the wooden duck!

Perfect country cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Barn Owl Cottage. The accommodations were spacious, clean and modern. We enjoyed the Spotted Cow Pub which was a five minute walk down the country lane. The cottage owner, Helen, was there to greet us and available for any questions or recommendations. Would highly recommend!

What a special find!

  • 5 of 5

My family traveled through the England for 2 weeks and this was my children's (teenagers) favorite place to stay. They said it felt 'homey' and were very comfortable there. Helen and Martin were wonderful hosts and so helpful. It was so relaxing and beautiful and a welcome respite during a busy touring vacation. Thank you for the wonderful stay!
