The house is conveniently located on the main A429 Fosseway road (which can be busy at times) halfway between Moreton-in-Marsh and Shipston-on-Stour and it is just ten miles north to Stratford-upon-Avon for the RSC and all the Shakespearean history you can soak in. Ten miles south is Stow-on-the-Wold the Cotswolds major antiques centre. Two public footpaths lead directly from the house; a 15-minute walk over the road and across the fields to Stretton-on-Fosse and its well-regarded village pub or if a longer walk is on the cards try the trail up the hill behind the house with stunning views to the village of Todenham and another village pub. This tastefully decorated rustic farmhouse is the ideal venue for large groups or extended families boasting shabby chic decor filled with period features and old bathroom fittings. There are two sitting rooms one with a sofa bed and both with character fireplaces and wood burners. One room has a television and the other a video player in case you want to entertain the kids in a separate living room and leave the adults in peace! The huge beamed traditional farmhouse kitchen is very central to the ambience of the house with seating for 15 people - great for entertaining or simply relaxing while someone is in charge of the food! You can also experience cooking on a traditional Aga (with an electric oven and a hob as a back-up). The kitchen is equipped with a microwave a dishwasher fridge and freezer and a washing machine and utility area. There is an en-suite double bedroom on the ground floor with a shower over the bath and a WC and a further bathroom with a shower over the roll top bath and WC. The first floor has two spacious bedrooms one with a king-size bed with an additional single bed and one with a double bed. Both rooms have access to a Jack and Jill bathroom with shower over roll top bath bidet and WC. On the top floor is a further bedroom with a king-size bed and a single bed plus two twin bedrooms and a bathroom complete with a hand-held shower roll top bath bidet and WC. Outside the house is a lovely enclosed courtyard with Wisteria plants a charcoal BBQ and garden furniture. There is a small enclosed garden area laid-to-lawn for the kids. To the front of the house there is enough room to park up to six cars (with high double gates). There is also a decked area with a rose arbour and garden furniture.

Great house for a large group - full of rustic charm.
Lovely weekend shared by 12 friends in this very well equipped rambling house. Great location.
Beautiful House, perfect for a relaxed getaway
Me and my friends stayed in Golden Cross Farm for 3 nights in March 2018. The house is so beautiful, the pictures do not do it justice. The attention to detail was great; from the decor to the lovely bedding. It felt homely and well maintained. Would definitely recommend.
A lovely old house with a warm, welcoming feel.
Comfortable with a lovely lived in feeling.
