The space
The Apple Barn is a recently converted farm building which was originally used to store fruit and vegetables. It combines the traditional features of stone and oak floors and beams, with contemporary fixtures and fittings. Fibre optic WiFi.

We are currently converting the adjacent Granary barn to provide a large party space or additional dining area for larger groups, events or meetings. On the top floor will be a full sized snooker table. We will also soon to be taking delivery of a hot tub which will be available to hire. All these will be available from May 2021.

The house can comfortably accommodate a large family or group of friends that don't mind sharing. There are plenty of extra beds available, but obviously the more beds you add, the more snug the accommodation becomes and the more people sharing the 3 bathrooms.

(We have another property located next door which sleeps up to 24. Both properties can be rented together, subject to availability https://www.airbnb.com/h/beautiful-cotswolds)

There are 2 good sized ensuite bedrooms on the first floor and a further 2 -bedroom family suite with one ensuite bathroom on the second floor. PLEASE NOTE - these 2 bedrooms are conjoined so they make up one large space and are therefore ideal for a family or people that don't mind sharing. The first floor bedrooms have king sized beds (5 foot). Bedroom 1 has a king size bed and a single bed. There is also space in this room for an additional fold up bed. (2 extra beds if you don't mind very little space between beds). Bedroom 2 also has space for 2 additional fold up bed, but the space is snug with the extra beds in situ. The beds on the second floor are Queen (4ft 6") and four single beds. There is room in Bedroom 3 for an additional fold up bed and we have even managed to fit 2 extra beds in here, although it's a tight fit. There is a large double sofa bed in the sitting room. Cots and highchairs are also available. I'm happy for up 16 people plus infants and pets to stay and there is enough room to seat 18 in the dining room, but it will make the common areas more of a squeeze, especially in the winter when the garden will be less usable. There are enough beds for at least 16 but you should be aware that the accommodation would be very snug if you had that many people sharing the facilities.

Please note that the second floor bedrooms are accessed via a spiral staircase so not suitable for those with mobility difficulties or very young children (see photo)

The ground floor is open-plan with a large sitting room, kitchen and dining room. There is a large inglenook fireplace in the sitting room with log-burning stove, TV, DVD player, iPod connectable stereo (via aux cable or old style jack) and football table. The kitchen is well appointed with range cooker, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, breakfast bar. and Smart TV. The dining room has a long refectory table with seating for 16 people. There is also a utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, freezer and downstairs cloakroom.

All rooms are served by wireless broadband.

There are two outside areas. At the front of the property there is a lawned area with terrace. To the side is a very private circular terrace with dining area and parasol. This is a particular sun trap and effectively creates an outdoor dining room in fine weather.

We provide you with washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, washing powder, foil, kitchen roll, clingfilm and loo rolls.

At Christmas there will be a real Christmas tree and all winter there is a plentiful supply of logs for the wood burner.

The bathrooms have soap and toilet rolls. There is also a hairdryer, iron and ironing board.

We don't expect you to use it but there is a vacuum cleaner and some basic cleaning products.

Please read the House Rules

We will greet you when you arrive and be available for any enquiries during your stay. However, we will leave you along and undisturbed unless you need out help.

Please note that the second floor is accessed by a spiral staircase that may not be suitable for elderly people or very young children.

Location

Charingworth, United Kingdom

Charingworth is a quiet hamlet on the edge of Ebrington. There are fantastic walks nearby, a great local pub and lots to do in the surrounding area. The house is in the Cotswolds but also close to Stratford upon Avon, Oxford and Warwick.

The house is located in the middle of the Cotswold countryside. This is a rural location and the nearest village of Ebrington has a farm shop and a village pub.

We always knew that our local pub, The Ebrington Arms, was special. Apparently The Times agrees. They have given it the accolade of Best Village Inn and also listed it as one of the in the best summer pubs in the UK. The pub is a short walk away in Ebrington. It's open all day and serves lunch and dinner (booking recommended) as well as snacks at other times. It also offers a very superior take-away fish and chips service.

We are very lucky because we have several really good pubs nearby. The Churchill Arms in Paxford also has to get a special mention. The chef/owner (he used to be Head Chef at Soho House and who has worked for Gordon Ramsey, Marcus Wareing and Eric Chavot) has appeared on Saturday Kitchen Live alongside Michel Roux, and his food is really excellent.

A new farm shop and cafe has recently opened in the nearby village. This is about 20 minutes walk from the house and close to the village pub. Vegetable Matters offers 'fresh local produce and a warm welcome'.

There are general stores in Chipping Campden and Shipston-on-Stour which are both within 4 miles of the property. There is a Waitrose in Stratford-upon-Avon which is about 15 minutes drive away. Ideally you will need a car, although, if guests prefer not to drive. they can arrange supermarket deliveries from Waitrose, Sainsburys and Tesco.

The house is surrounded by beautiful rural Cotswold countryside with many public footpaths, including The Cotswold Way. There are numerous Cotswold stone villages and towns nearby, including Chipping Campden, Broadway, Upper and Lower Slaughter and Stow-on-the-Wold. It is also close to Stratford-upon-Avon and an ideal location for visiting both the theatre and this historic town. Oxford and Blenheim Palace, in Woodstock, are also only a short drive away. We are a short drive from Daylesford, Soho Farmhouse and . Bicester Village.
