Situated on the borders of Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire, this barn conversion has sweeping views over the Cherwell Valley.

Situated on the borders of two historic counties, Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire, this detached, spacious and beautifully appointed barn conversion has sweeping views over the Cherwell Valley and to distant Banbury. The lovely garden makes a perfect setting in which to relax at the end of the day, and from here there is ease of access to the popular Jurassic Way footpath, providing excellent walking.
Swallow Barn is in an ideal holiday location to explore and enjoy the many places of interest and great scenic beauty in this area of England. The quaint and often unchanged market towns and villages of the Cotswold Hills are full of charm; there are many fine houses and gardens to visit, a superb Wildlife Park at Burford, several farm parks and Blenheim Palace at Woodstock. The elegant university city of Oxford has world famous museums and art galleries, and punts can be hired for an afternoon on the River Cherwell. A visit to Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon should not be missed. A guided sightseeing tour is available taking in all the memorable and historic houses and churches including the two great theatres where the Bard’s plays are performed.
The lesser-known picturesque villages of Northamptonshire include Ashby St Ledger - the home of Guy Fawkes (not open to the public), and Althorp, the resting place of Diana, Princess of Wales. The Silverstone Racing Circuit and Gaydon Motor Museum add further interest. Shop 2 miles.

    Loved the barn - beautifully decorated and very well equipped. Lots to fun with the pool (it’s small but has jets to swim against) and there’s also pool, table football and games galore. Lovely walk along Jurassic way that runs out the back gate of the garden and it’s an easy walk to Middleton Cheney village pub ! Loved It here so much we have already rebooked for another weekend next year !

    We had an amazing weekend at Swallow Barn. The place was ideal for our family. The kids loved the pool and games room. We will definitely be visiting again. The owner was lovely and couldn’t do enough. There was everything we needed available

    Great cottage to stay in, though thought the cooker could have been bigger considering the size of the kitchen.

    Lovely property big enough to absorb 10 people easily. Pool was a great bonus, enjoyed by everyone. Plenty of other games/activities available in the house. Quiet rural location with slight motorway noise in the garden but nothing to spoil the visit. Would benefit from another shower but we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    We all had a great time a group of friends age from 19 to 50 there was plenty to do , playing games, swimming , playing table tennis or just chilling out . All rooms a good size allowing for individuals to do their own thing. The gardens are beautiful and space to sit out in garden and enjoy or play football. The building itself was lovely and comfortable . You felt like you was in the middle of nowhere but you had the advantage of big stores (Tesco ) being only a few miles up the road so easily stock up on supplies. Plenty of places to visit and do shopping with out having to travel to far. The owner was a very helpful lovely lady , highly recommend and planning to return next year with family.

    Superb accommodation that is hard to fault, well equipped in all respects. We had three teenage grandchildren who loved the pool and games room. Kitchen was extremely well equipped with more than enough utensils,cutlery etc. Swallow Barn is in a rural location but Banbury is only a short drive away. As a family we have stayed in numerous rental properties for holidays over the past few years, Swallow Barn was way and above the best equipped and comfortable of them all.
