Some of the finest, grandest Cotswold barns are found in this part of the south-east Cotswolds and our barn lies between Eastleach, famous for its thousands of daffodils growing wild by the river Leach, and its two Norman churches and Southrop, whose ancient church has a magnificent stone font.
The barn is in a tiny hamlet just off the A361 between Burford and Lechlade-on-Thames, an hour and a quarter’s drive from junctions 15 and 16 of the M25 and Heathrow and 45 minutes from junction 11a of the M5 at Gloucester. The Manor House in Southrop is home to the Thyme Cooking School and both villages have pubs which are easy to walk to across fields from the barn. The Swan pub in Southrop has been chosen as Pub Restaurant of the Year by Which Good Food Guide and after walking by our stretch of the River Leach, over a stone bridge and through a field, within ten minutes you can be having a drink or meal at the Swan – favourite of Kate Moss, Gary Barlow and many other famous local residents. But most important is the barn’s setting in exquisite gardens.
