About Cowshot Barn

For discerning couples looking for a luxury break in a unique manor house setting look no further than Cowshot Barn! The Manor house is lived in by the charming owners and dates back to the 15th century. Access the four and a half acres of grounds that constantly change throughout the seasons, and take a stroll along the small stream which runs along the edge of the property.

The accommodation is in a detached barn that sits proudly within the grounds of the adjacent main house. It has been recently re-built using the utmost quality and care. Many of the oak beams have been repaired or replaced by master craftsmen - from the same company responsible for the rebuilding of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre! The high ceiling and wooden beam structure are a particular feature. The bedroom is on a galleried mezzanine level accessed via a beautiful oak staircase and has a magnificent 2 metre superking size bed; hand crafted using ancient beams from the old barn. Customer comfort is very much at the heart of the design.

A huge open plan sitting room with large, comfy sofas and a smart TV greets you as you enter. There's an expansive feature window that looks out onto the grounds, and for keen chefs the modern kitchen is spacious and well equipped with extensive granite worktops. A delight to cook in!

If you're from abroad, your stay here will make a visit to England truly unforgettable and if you're from England you will appreciate the superb convenient location and accessibility afforded by Cowshot Barn. There are superb motorway links, Heathrow airport is only 45 minutes away and central London is just 35 minutes' by train.

Cowshot Barn would suit couples or independently-minded business travellers who are looking for something more from a self-catering apartment suite, we welcome you to spend your well-deserved getaway here!
