Kate and Carl weclome you to Black Barn Cottage, a comfortable, ground-floor studio with en-suite facilities built in 2017. It's an ideal base for visiting the Cotswolds, Oxford, Blenheim Palace, Silverstone and Stratford-upon-Avon, or relaxing after a day's shopping in Bicester Village. The cottage is located on our smallholding at the edge of the picturesque village of Steeple Aston.

The space
We have designed and furnished Black Barn Cottage with your comfort and convenience in mind. Much of the work has been carried out by local crafts people and we have used reclaimed materials where possible.
Prepare a meal from tasty local ingredients, then relax in front of a film, or curl up with a book in the cozy sitting area. Please let us know if you prefer 2 twin beds, or a double bed.

Other things to note
We grow many types of fruit and vegetables on our land - our guests are welcome to purchase seasonal surpluses plus Kate's delicious jams and chutneys.

Oxfordshire, England, United Kingdom

Steeple Aston is an ancient settlement with roots going back to Roman times, maybe earlier. Today, with a population of around 1,000, it is a busy village with plenty to see and do.

The village has its own shop and Post Office, Harris Stores, and a traditional pub and restaurant, the Red Lion. Steeple Aston is surrounded by the farmland of the Cherwell Valley, where many footpaths and bridleways provide access to beautiful views across the water meadows where the river, the Oxford Canal and the railway come together. Keen cyclists will enjoy the undulating landscape. There is plenty of wildlife to be seen. Kingfishers can be spotted by the river and canal and a wide variety of birds visit our smallholding and the surrounding fields.
