Wonderfully converted to a very high standard, this Cotswold stone barn is situated within the characterful hamlet of Calcot, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, between Stow-on-the-Wold and Cirencester, which offers a central location for exploring the Cotswolds. The Old Byre is three miles from Northleach, a small town of historical interest, at the meeting point of the A429 Fosseway and the A40, and three miles from the picturesque village of Bibury, reputedly acknowledged by William Morris as ‘the prettiest village in England’. There are many nearby honey-coloured villages well worth a visit including Bourton-on-the-Water, Moreton-in-Marsh with its famous Tuesday market, and Chipping Campden. The city of Gloucester, with its magnificent cathedral and tomb of Edward II is within easy reach, as is the Regency city of Cheltenham with famous racecourse. National Trust properties are plentiful, including Snowshill Manor and Woodchester Park. For horticultural enthusiasts there is Westonbirt Arboretum, Kiftsgate Court and Hidcote Manor. The property is 9 miles from Cirencester; 15 miles from Cheltenham; 25 miles from Oxford; 30 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon. Shop 3 miles and pub 1½ miles.

    The cottage was beautiful. We didn't want to leave! Loved the decoration and the log fire. In a great central location for exploring the Cotswolds. We will certainly go back in the future.

    We all loved the property - aged 8 to 72. Could do with a tumble dryer when staying with children for more than 2 days (we were there a week in October). Also double room needs a wardrobe. Otherwise a very charming property and would have loved to stay longer.

    A lovely spacious barn conversion, with an enormous kitchen and very attractive garden with a lovely view from both the kitchen and lounge. Four good sized bedrooms. Bathrooms are looking a little bit faded, but good powerful shower. The real prize is the location - not isolated because part of a small hamlet, but so quiet because away from any busy roads. The roads are mostly single track in the immediate area. Great local walks. Excellent for getting onto the main roads for Stow, Cirencester and Cheltenham. The Cotswolds are glorious - this was our second visit to the area this year, and it is stunning with the autumn colour. The directions have an error - you turn right at the Hare and Hounds and not the Horse and Hounds as described.

    Lovely barn conversion & very homely. Beautiful location. No hanging space in one of the double bedrooms but would not stop me going again.

    Excellent place to stay. Warm, clean, tidy and comfortable beds. Owners very informative when contacted.

    Our group had a lovely weekend here. It had a home from home feel. For future reference: more clothes hanging hooks needed and a central coffee table in lounge. That said we would use it again.
