  • Classic Georgian-style farmhouse surrounded by stunning countryside
  • Perfectly located for exploring Shakespeare country and the pretty Cotswold villages
  • Wonderful countryside walks from the doorstep to enjoy together
Property code: CC026

The house is conveniently located on the main A429 Fosseway road, (which can be busy at times) halfway between Moreton-in-Marsh and Shipston-on-Stour, and it is just ten miles north to Stratford-upon-Avon for the RSC and all the Shakespearean history you can soak in. Ten miles south is Stow-on-the-Wold, the Cotswolds' major antiques centre. Two public footpaths lead directly from the house; a 15-minute walk over the road and across the fields to Stretton-on-Fosse and its well-regarded village pub, or if a longer walk is on the cards, try the trail up the hill behind the house with stunning views, to the pretty village of Todenham. This tastefully decorated, rustic farmhouse is the ideal venue for large groups or extended families, boasting shabby chic decor, filled with period features and old bathroom fittings. There are two sitting rooms, one with a sofa bed and both with character fireplaces and wood burners. One room has a television, and the other a video player, in case you want to entertain the kids in a separate living room and leave the adults in peace! The huge beamed traditional farmhouse kitchen is very central to the ambience of the house with seating for 15 people - great for entertaining or simply relaxing while someone is in charge of the food! You can also experience cooking on a traditional Aga (with an electric oven and a hob as a back-up). The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, a dishwasher, two fridges and freezer, and a washing machine and utility area. There is an en-suite double bedroom on the ground floor, with a shower over the bath and a WC, and a further bathroom with a shower over the roll top bath and WC. The first floor has two spacious bedrooms, one with a king-size bed with an additional single bed, and one with a double bed. Both rooms have access to a Jack and Jill bathroom with shower over roll top bath, bidet and WC. On the top floor is a further bedroom with a king-size bed and a single bed, plus two twin bedrooms and a bathroom complete with a hand-held shower, roll top bath, bidet and WC.

Outside the house is a lovely enclosed courtyard with wisteria, a charcoal BBQ and garden furniture. There is a small enclosed garden area laid-to-lawn for the kids. To the front of the house there is enough room to park up to six cars (with high double gates). There is also a decked area with a rose arbour and garden furniture.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

For a suitable jaunt out with the kids, the 1-mile walk to the nearby village of Stretton-on-Fosse is the way to go for a highly regarded village pub and 12th-century church to explore. Alternatively, the 2-mile trip to Shipston-on-Stour offers a small supermarket for grabbing some groceries alongside a handful of pubs and a couple of independent cafes. You might also prefer to get a takeaway and take it home to feed the clan. Come the morning, venture into the nearby Cotswolds AONB for a dose of countryside. Explore the secret gardens of the Hidcote National Trust (6.5 miles) and view the house's colourful rooms, partaking in some arts and crafts whilst there. There's also heaps to do in the historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon (11 miles), where tourists head to learn a little bit about the iconic British playwright William Shakespeare. See the restored 16th-century birthplace of the bard, before checking out the beautiful home of his wife Anne Hathaway (12.5 miles).

Great for a group reunion. We celebrated our Golden Wedding with close family. Very comfortable and relaxed style. Its only downside as mentioned by others is its proximity to the busy Fosse way which makes exit onto the road a little challenging at times.

The house is lovely, comfortable, spacious, and full of charm. It is close to lovely towns of Moreton in marsh and Chipping Camden. It is next to a busy road, which was a bit of a problem when large trucks zoomed passed (noise and vibration) but after a couple of beers, less of an issue. Take care when drive out of the property.

Golden Cross Farmhouse is a beautiful property, full of rustic charm, very well equipped for large parties, very spacious inside and with enough room outside in the back courtyard and small lawn area.
