Tom's Barn, near Andoversford and Cheltenham, is a breath-takingly beautiful five-bedroom, five-bathroom detached holiday barn located in a secluded Cotswold valley. This 300-year-old barn has been lovingly renovated by the owners to create a spacious and welcoming holiday home with glorious gardens and fabulous views. It has the perfect layout to accommodate a multi-generation group, with a large, beamed living room with a wood-burning stove, a piano and a separate snug area to one side. To the other side of the living room is a large and very well-equipped, farmhouse-style kitchen with a garden room leading out to the outside dining area. As you look out of the living room and garden room, you'll see a beautiful terraced garden set on three levels, the lowest terrace has a patio with a large barbecue and dining area, the middle terrace has an immaculate lawn and double swing seat, and the top terrace has a wide lawn with an open-sided, corner cabin – the ideal spot to sunset or stargaze.
Inside, the feature staircase leads up to a beautiful gallery landing with three bedrooms on the first floor, including the large master with an en-suite bathroom and two twin rooms. There are also two further twin bedrooms on the ground floor.
Tom's Barn is located on a small, family-run farm in a peaceful hamlet, where you can buy their own honey, lamb, free-range eggs and woven blankets to take home with you. It is the perfect location to easily explore the Cotswold villages, towns and countryside, including Cheltenham, Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold and the Gloucestershire Way. Also on the farm is The Calf Pens, a peaceful and secluded getaway for four.
