A beautiful barn that was recently renovated in 2018 and is set in a quiet village in the Oxfordshire countryside, on the edge of the stunning Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The owners will give you a very warm welcome and ensure you have a fantastic stay with your friends and family and will even let you stay until 11am on the day of departure to enjoy every last moment of your break. Set in a gated courtyard, Monastery Barn has been presented to a very high standard with many period features including beams throughout the ground floor. All rooms in this property overlook the walled English country garden which has two patios where you can sit and dine, a secret seating area and is subtly illuminated at night so you can enjoy the warmer evenings with a gin and tonic. The dining room opens into the conservatory which boasts another seating area and flows into the large kitchen and the cosy living room. Upstairs, there are 3 beautifully decorated bedrooms, the master has an en-suite bathroom and there is a family bathroom too.
This is a great property for a short break or extended holiday as there is much to see and do in the area. Shutford has a lovely village pub and is a short distance from both Banbury and Chipping Norton. Explore sleepy villages of honey-coloured stone and lively market towns; visit stunning palaces, castles and country houses; walk along rural historic trails, footpaths and bridleways to explore ancient woodlands and wild flower meadows. Locally produced cheeses, meats and drinks can be sampled at the gastro pubs and inns, traditional cafés and fine dining restaurants within a 20 mile radius of Monastery Barn.
There is a wealth of visitor attractions and leisure activities in the area including Blenheim Palace, British Motor Museum, Broughton Castle and gardens, Hook Norton Brewery, Daylesford Organic Farm, Soho Farmhouse, Rollright Stones and Silverstone Race Circuit. A few villages and towns that would be well worth a visit during your stay would be Chipping Norton, Moreton-in-Marsh, Banbury, Shipston-on-Stour, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stratford-upon-Avon, Woodstock and Chipping Campden to name but a few. Shop 4½ miles, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

    The owners were very friendly and helpful. Monastery Barn was well presented with nice little touches such as Ferrero Rocher and bottles of water in every bedroom. I think that maybe they should inspect the work of the cleaners as some of the floors could have been cleaner.

    Wonderful cottage. Exceptionally well equipped. Very accommodating hosts. The only thing which could be improved would be the addition of a proper stand-up shower in the main bathroom. Otherwise, everything is perfect! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

    This is a fabulous cottage in a small, beautiful Cotswold village. The house was beautiful and very well equipped and the garden was fantastic. The owners gave us a very warm welcome including some welcome drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic). They are very dog friendly and the house has a large downstairs area with a tiled floor so good even in muddy weather. The garden is properly secure for the dogs and ours had a fabulous time exploring and playing in it. There is an outside tap for paw rinsing and a dog towel was provided. There is off road parking and good dog walking from the house as well as being in close driving range of many more walks and great places to visit. We would highly recommend Monastery Barn for your holiday.
