The Bledington Barn is a luxurious eco-friendly property for up to six guests situated in the heart of the Cotswolds. The pre-existing, 300 year old, dilapidated barn was beautifully renovated, recycling and re-purposing the majority of old materials, to create a spacious property with opulent furnishings set against exposed stone and original oak beams. The original cowshed window now houses the bathroom mirror, the hay loft ladder is now a towel rail, old engineering bricks have been cleaned up and work fabulously in tandem with the underfloor heating powered by a wood pellet boiler.
Situated on the grounds of the owner’s lovely farmhouse, on the edge of the picturesque village green, Bledington Barn enjoys complete privacy and is a wonderful escape for either a family or a group of friends seeking a countryside escape.
This light, spacious property has a huge open plan double height living room with comfortable seating for at least seven. The dining area caters for eight and the kitchen area with Gaggenau appliances is a cook’s dream! The kitchen has a separate breakfast area to seat five. There is a downstairs loo and a separate dedicated laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer.
Upstairs are the three bedrooms. The master bedroom with a king size bed and en suite bathroom with shower. The second bedroom can be a twin or a double, and the third bedroom has a single sleigh bed and a washbasin with a heated towel rail. A pull-out trundle bed gives additional space for one guest*. The family bathroom has a bath with a shower, loo and two Corian basins.
*If the pull out trundle bed is used, it should be noted that the space is limited.

Things to do nearby
Food & Drink
Bledington Barn will be hard to leave but we suggest escaping for the very best restaurants and pubs. Establishments that merit a journey include the excellent Kings Head pub in Bledington. While for brunch and local farm produce, there is nowhere better than Daylesford Farm. For Soho House members, a day spent at nearby Soho Farmhouse is well worth a trip.
Things To Do In Bledington
Hire a bike with Ty Cycles in Chipping Norton or immerse yourself in the grandeur of nearby Blenheim Palace, sip on local ales at Horton Nook Brewery and get up close and personal with the lions at the Cotswolds Wildlife Park. The Haybarn Spa at Daylesford farm is particularly lovely for those in need of a spot of pampering.
