An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


A short drive from the M40 giving easy access to Birmingham and London, or for simply exploring the delights of the Cotswolds.

Set in rolling rural countryside on the borders of Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire, yet only a short drive from the major motorway connections of the M40 (Junctions 10 and 11), The Hayloft and The Stalls (refs NAB & NAC) are adjoining barn conversions which lie on the edge of the Cotswolds. They offer spacious, light and airy holiday accommodation that is still warm, cosy and comfortable with wooden floors and a wood-burning stove. There are numerous established footpaths and bridle paths which criss-cross the area and take guests through some of the most picturesque countryside and landscapes. The nearby village of Aynho is famous for the apricot trees grown on the stone walls of the old houses. The historic market town of Banbury is close by, whilst Deddington (with a monthly farmers’ market), Chipping Norton, Moreton-in-Marsh and Shipston-on-Stour give a more traditional view of the Cotswolds and the chance to stroll along the quaint high streets, stopping at one of the many tea shops and country inns for which the area is famous. Less than 30 minutes away lies Blenheim Palace, in the town of Woodstock, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill and home of the Blenheim Horse Trials. In the opposite direction, why not sample Sulgrave Manor (ancestral home of the family of George Washington) or Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit, situated next to a forest - or divert to shop at designer boutiques in the highly acclaimed Bicester Village Outlet Centre. A little farther afield, but still within easy driving distance, lie the university city of Oxford, the ancient town of Warwick, Leamington Spa and the historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon. Commonly referred to as Shakespeare’s Stratford, this is the perfect opportunity to visit many historic attractions including the Birthplace, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and the world famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Aynho is an hour’s journey north to Birmingham (with the National Exhibition Centre) or south to London itself. There are excellent fast trains from Banbury or Bicester, or drive via the M40. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile

    Fabulous place for the night before my wedding with my bridesmaids. Beautiful open-plan kitchen/diner, cosy comfortable lounge, and brilliant hot tub! Property was spotlessly clean and we had comprehensive information sent to us prior to arrival, so it was easy to find too. Plenty of parking. Lovely countryside setting which made the arrival very enjoyable (though hadn't realised the motorway is in view, but this was distant and didn't bother us). Shame one of the bathrooms has a bath/hand-held shower rather than a full shower, but would still fully recommend this property; it gave us a fabulous wedding weekend! A tip - if you're getting an online food shop delivered, make sure to specify the cottage name and/or directions so that the driver can access the right building.

    Perfect for group of 8 ladies celebrating 2 of their 40th birthdays. We followed the suggested 5 mile walk and booked in for lunch at the Great Western Arms. Very muddy but great walk. All kitchen and cleaning items provided, so you really don't need to worry about packing kitchen bits. Just your personal items. Towels for hot tub even provided in baskets downstairs! Well sign posted to the cottage, but despite this the Tesco delivery driver tried to deliver to the main house who weren't home. So instead of ringing just left, which then meant I had to do 1 hour round trip to Tesco Banbury to pick up our order. So if you do use grocery delivery maybe copy and paste directions too. The barn is split into 2 cottages so you may have neighbours who can share the hot tub. We loved the Stalls, and would love to go back again some time!! Thank you!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Sorry you had a bad experience with Tesco; the delivery drivers are normally very good. Just to add a note, the use of the hot tub is for The Stalls guests only. Glad you had a pleasant stay and hope to see you again.

    The Stalls was lovely- impeccably clean and great facilities within in. A short walk to a lovely local pub for a great pub lunch and set in lovely countryside and Helen and Tim were very helpful and hospitable. We would love to visit again, we could not fault it. Thank you.

    Lovely place to stay, we all had a wonderful time. Hot tub water was not clean and needed treating.

    Had the best girlie weekend ever at the Stalls. Beautiful place, great location for shopping @ Biscester. Short taxi ride into Banbury for a selection bars & restaurants and a lovely walk into Souldern to a delightful country pub. Hot tub was a lovely addition too. Owners Helen & Tim and caretaker Helen couldn't have been more welcoming. Attached to another three bedroomed conversion which can be opened up to make one big property for larger groups. Would highly recommend.

    We had the best time at The Stalls. There was a group of 8 of us ranging from age 20 to 60, for my friends hen do and we decided that we would be having both nights in the property, we had everything we needed for a fantastic break. There isn't much to do in the local area, but we enjoyed a nice walk in to village. The rest of stay we partied the nights away. The stalls sleeps 8 comfortably, the beds were arranged to our specifications and they were very comfortable and clean. Great kitchen and dining area, we cooked both nights and it was lovely to all be sat round the table. The hot tub is absolutely lovely and really made our time at the Stalls that extra bit special. The Stalls had everything we needed and I would wholeheartedly recommend it. The owners and lady who looks after the apartments are very welcoming. It's worth noting that The Stalls can be adjoining to the property next door and therefore if you should need a property sleeping more than 8, you could also hire that which sleeps 6.
