  • Cosy converted barn in an idyllic location, among open farmland, close to riverside village of Welford-on-Avon
  • Situated by the River Avon for fishing, and a golfing range at the Welford Golf Club.
  • Great rural base ideal for keen walkers and cyclists in the heart of Shakespeare’s country, on the edge of the Cotswolds.
Property code: CC067

This cottage is a beautifully converted barn, ideally situated just a short walk to the local pub, within the heart of Shakespeare’s Country.

This cosy four-bedroom barn conversion is a great place for a laid-back break with family or friends. A quiet location on the River Avon provides ample countryside walks, pretty towns to explore, and plenty of local pubs for those well-deserved breaks.

The property has been stylishly renovated with an impressive double staircase and lots of antique furniture throughout. The large hall area is a useful space for shedding wellies, coats and bags – and the kids will be fascinated by the beautiful grandfather clock. Upstairs in the eaves, the four bedrooms are bright and roomy and, with an additional bed available in the snug, there are options enough to suit any combination of guests. Three bathrooms plus a WC downstairs are also a bonus, so everyone has space to get ready for a day exploring the stunning Cotswolds. Gather around the large pine dining table and notch up some more quality time together over a hearty breakfast as you chat and make plans for the day ahead. In warmer weather, the barn's large enclosed garden with patio furniture and French doors connecting the kitchen/diner provides the perfect setting for leisurely BBQ lunches and evening drinks watching the sun go down. There's even enough room for a family game of rounders or cricket. In cooler months, pile into the living room with the open fire roaring and get competitive over a board game instead, or find a moment of calm with a book and a blanket in the comfy snug.

The house is surrounded by farmland, and it's just 100 metres to the River Avon for some pretty riverside walks or for a spot of fishing. Neighbouring town, Welford-on-Avon, is half a mile from the house with a selection of independent shops and pubs, and an 18-hole golf course. The more energetic might like to walk or cycle the towpath to Stratford-upon-Avon, 3.5 miles away. There are several riverside cafes along the way to revive tired legs. Besides its famous theatre, Stratford has an excellent range of shops and restaurants, gentle canal and river trips, and some fascinating historic houses. A trip to its Butterfly Farm will be a hit for younger children – and a pretty place to warm up during the colder months – while The MAD Museum is a great interactive place to entertain all ages with a useful central location. Further afield, the whole family will enjoy a trip to Warwick Castle, 8 miles away, with daily attractions including archery, hawk displays and jousting.

The Farmstead was a superb holiday location for our four adults and four grandchildren. Walks to the neighbouring villages with pubs and shops and just over 3 miles into the heart of Stratford.

Clean and spacious, The Farmstead is situated in a stunning location. The owners are delightful and permanently on hand if required. Our son and daughter-in-law spent a few days with us with our one year old grandson.

Wow! What a gem! The house and location was perfect and we would definitely stay there again. We found a footpath and took a short walk to the local pub (The Bell I think).
