Step into the charm of rural living with this meticulously converted one bedroom barn located in the idyllic village of Middle Barton. With its blend of rustic architecture and modern amenities, The Barn By The Ford provides a unique living experience for those seeking a peaceful retreat and welcomes your canine friend too!

This lovely property offers a truly delightful getaway for anyone seeking a true taste of Cotswold living. This delightfully whimsical thatched barn has been lovingly renovated by the owners with luxury, comfort and cosy living in mind, making a heavenly homestay and ideal couple's retreat…and being only an hour and a half from London is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Upon entering, you are greeted by a stylish cream kitchen, fully equipped with an Aga, a Smeg fridge and top of the range appliances. The central island, with a stunning marble top, doubles up as a breakfast-bar and is the ideal place to enjoy an evening meal and plan the next day's adventures, there is even an optics bar for those who enjoy an evening tipple!

The kitchen leads to a hallway with a convenient space to hang your coats and kick off your boots, and on to a downstairs shower-room, which has been wonderfully finished with quirky and eccentric fittings and benefits from a spacious walk-in rainfall shower… just the most inviting space to freshen after a day exploring.

A central wooden staircase leads you upstairs to the converted loft area where you will find the unconventional and super cosy living space, with sumptuous velvet sofa and matching love seat. This really is the loveliest space to relax over a game of chess, or watch a good movie.

A couple of steps take you to the delightful bedroom area where you can snuggle down in the beautiful brass bed with sumptuous Egyptian cotton bedding. The exposed stonework and twinkling fairy lights certainly make for a magical night's sleep.

Whilst there is no outside space at The Barn By The Ford, there are some lovely walks for you and your four-legged friend to enjoy in the area.

Guests will enjoy the serenity of village life while remaining in close proximity to local amenities and transport links. Whether as a weekend getaway or for those seeking a longer stay, this converted barn is a place to renew, reset and relax.
