Property description

Owl Barn is one of three stunning and award winning conversions at Chimney Farm Barns. Situated right on the edge of Chimney Meadows Nature Reserve, Owl Barn enjoys uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. This spacious barn comfortably accommodates 10 people in 5 bedrooms (additional guests on enquiry). The magnificent open plan living area is appropriately furnished to ensure you and your guests can spread out, relax and enjoy your stay.



Upstairs, there are four double/twin bedrooms and three bathrooms, two of which are en-suite.
Downstairs you will find a fifth king/twin bedroom off the entrance hall. There is a seperate loo downstairs.
The ground floor is open plan, with the large kitchen area seperated from the living end by a huge table and chairs for 10-12 plus a second table for an additional 6.
A log burning stove makes a fabulous focal point, as well as keeping you and your party cosy and warm in cooler weather. Outside, Owl Barn enjoys oodles of private entertaining space.
There is a terrace with built-in barbecue plus additional Weber barbecue grill overlooking the nature reserve and lots of outdoor furniture - large tables plus seating for 12-14 - enabling you to bring your party outside.
There are two other barns in the same location so you may accommodate a larger group by booking either Rose Barn or Snipe Barn to accommodate between 18 and 26 people.

Owl Barn is ideal for families - we have high chairs and cots available for little ones. Bedrooms 1 and 4 are sufficiently spacious to add a camp bed in each and there is a sofa bed in the sitting area.

From the doorstep there are wonderful walks and circular cycle routes - more information can be found in Local Knowledge or at the Barn itself. Families, well behaved pets, walkers and cyclsts are all welcome at Chimney Farm Barns! We keep a good stock of local information to help you get the very best from your StayCotswold. See Local Knowledge section above.

Owl Barn can be booked with either Rose Barn or Snipe Barn to accommodate between 18 and 26 people.

All three barns can also be booked to accommodate 32-40 persons. We can find the perfect combination for you so do contact us for more details and availability across all three barns.
