  • "Lower Farm Barn is a beautiful holiday home, that has plenty of character, charm in a wonderfully peaceful setting."

    The house is equipped with high end fixtures and fittings, very comfortable beds and furniture where all your home comforts are met and more! We were so lucky with the weather , the garden cane into its own. We did gave to look for the property to find it though, as the address was misleading. Its actually on Bull Lane, not Bull Street for any future stays!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your comfortable stay and were able to enjoy the garden. We hope we can welcome you back again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

    It is a long time since we have had this sort of holiday but we were more than happy! The booking was easy; we were given all necessary information and the home is even better in life than it is shown in the pictures - I’ve never known that - the photos always look better than the reality. We took our elderly parents for a week’s holiday and we were all comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our time. It just went too quickly! We would be delighted to recommend this home any time. Thank you for the use of the beautiful, well appointed, well equipped home!

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are so pleased that you found the process easy and that you and your parents enjoyed your stay. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Lower Farm Barn, and I must say it was a remarkable experience."

    From the moment we arrived, we were captivated by the stunning outdoor space, spacious rooms, and impeccable selection of furniture, fittings, and design. This place truly exceeded our expectations in every way. We even received a little welcome basket with all the essentials that we needed for the first few days - it was a lovely touch. First and foremost, the outdoor space surrounding the Barn Farm Conversion were nothing short of breathtaking. Lush greenery and well-maintained pathways created a serene and picturesque setting. Our kids and dogs enjoyed the space. The spacious rooms in the converted barn were a delightful surprise. Each room was thoughtfully designed, with plenty of space to accommodate families and their furry friends. The interiors were tastefully decorated, seamlessly blending modern comfort with the rustic charm of the countryside. The attention to detail in the design was evident, with carefully chosen colors, textures, and furnishings that created a warm and inviting atmosphere. Every aspect of the barn conversion was carefully considered, and it showed. The furniture was not only aesthetically pleasing but also exceptionally comfortable. The fittings and fixtures were of high quality and perfectly complemented the overall design of the space. It was evident that great care had been taken to create a harmonious and stylish environment. As a family traveling with kids and dogs, Lower Farm Barn was an absolute haven. The property was well-suited for families, providing ample space for children to play and explore. The open layout and well-planned design allowed for easy movement, ensuring everyone felt comfortable and relaxed. The added bonus of being able to bring our four-legged companions along made our stay truly memorable. Furthermore, everything was in great shape. The property was meticulously maintained, and every detail was taken care of. From the spotless cleanliness to the excellent upkeep of amenities, we felt like we were staying in a five-star hotel. It was evident that the owners took great pride in their property and made every effort to ensure a top-notch experience for their guests. The level of care and thought put into every aspect of the property was truly commendable. I wholeheartedly recommend this charming farm conversion to anyone seeking a memorable and enjoyable countryside getaway.

    Thank you for taking time to provide us with this fantastic feedback. We are so pleased to hear that you had a wonderful stay at Lower Farm Barn and appreciate you taking the time to share all of its wonderful qualities. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "The property was very lovely and well maintained."

    It was spotlessly cleaned too, even down to the kitchen drawers and storage. Great communal space for a big group, there was 8 of us and a dog. Kitchen was well equipped and good sized fridge, freezer and cooker. A couple of very minor points only for feedback not to criticise. The bedroom off the living area was lovely but needed a mirror somewhere in the bedroom. it was virtually impossible to dry hair and use the bathroom mirror and if someone was using the bathroom at the same time. A loose toilet seat in the shared bathroom. Also check in time being 6pm is very late indeed. We were kindly emailed to say we could check in earlier at 1pm but the Journey took over 4 hours so it was too late to get there much earlier as we had already scheduled our leaving time, therefore the email was too late for us to set off earlier. We were also aware of the check in time when we booked, but still considered it late. We did get there a little earlier and we were able to access the property, which we were grateful for. I would still highly recommend the property and the process

    Many thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. As a larger property, it is a challenge to get the property ready again when previous guests have check ed out the same morning, however the housekeeping team will always contact guests if the property is ready earlier. We're so pleased you had a lovely time overall and look forward to welcoming you back. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "The only let down to this wonderful barn is the lack of secure garden as a dog-friendly holiday let."

    All it would take would be some wire one the back of one gate, as there is on the field fences around the barn. We made it dog-safe using garden furniture but it was a shame. But other than that, a beautiful relaxing home! We had a wonderful stay!

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, as the property is close to livestock, pets do need to be supervised. We pleased that you enjoyed a relaxing break in this beautiful setting. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed a first class experience in premier accomodation."

    The facilities were top class with everything fully functioing . There was more than enough space for six adults and two children and the dog was well contained in the rear garden. We would certainly consider visiting again and our experience puts a big dent in the likelyhood of future visits to CentreParcs.

  • "The Barn is exquisite, immaculate and a joy to spend time in."

    Our family had a fabulous weekend. The pool table added an extra element that everyone enjoyed. At the time of booking the master bedroom was listed as a king bed so it was disappointing to find a 4ft6 bed in there instead. I see the description of the master bed, has now been changed, however, I would suggest that a king bed in that room would be far more comfortable and more in keeping with the overall comfort level of the barn.

  • "The property was to be accessed at 6pm on day of arrival."

    This is not acceptable when you are traveling with small children and wanting to cook in the evening. Check in should be at 2pm or earlier. Cleaning should be sorted out and not be a burden on the guests. The cleaners need to be monitored: the ceiling in the sitting room had cob-webs and a large spider that enjoyed our company for all 3 days. The toilet seat in the upstairs room was filthy around the seat fixings. 6pm check-in and check-out by 10am. This is robbery.

    Many thanks for providing this feedback and we're sorry that you encountered some issues during your stay. We are gradually bringing forward our check in times following Covid. Insects are common in the countryside and cannot be completely eradicated. We will check on the toilet seat and ensure that cleanliness is upheld to our normal high standards - thank you for bringing this to our attention. Manor Cottages Property Owner

The property

Located in the civil parish in Thames Valley is the stunning Lower Farm Barn.

Sleeping a total of 8, this is the perfect home for a retreat to the Cotswolds.

Upon pulling up on the private driveaway, you will instantly feel right at home.

To your left you will firstly find the kitchen/diner, the perfect space for the chefs of the party to prepare only the best home-cooked meals, as you proceed to set the dining table and feast upon a ravishing meal, after a day’s activities.

Further left you will find bedroom 2; A king-size room with a stunning view to the land that surrounds it.

Exiting this, is bathroom 2 which contains a walk-in shower, bath, hand basin, and WC.

Moving down the hall you will find bedroom 3; A twin room that has once again, a beautiful view of the outside area of the property.

Bedroom 4 found at the far end of the corridor, which contains a generous king-size bed and fixed cot, as well as an ensuite which holds a walk-in shower, hand basin, and WC.

The utility room for the property can be located at the back door of this bedroom, which also leads outside as well.

Moving around to the other side of Lower Farm Barn is the sitting room 1.

This space is just what you need after a day of adventure, as you sip on a crisp glass of wine over the wood burning stove, whilst the kids compete in an exhilarating game of pool.

If you are wanting a bit of a quiet space that is out of the way, move through to sitting room 2.

This is a smaller space but one that is just what you need for a quiet evening away from the kids to really unwind during your stay.

Above this room is the first floor, where bedroom 1 is located.

This is equipped with a double bed, and ensuite which has a roll-top bath with hand held shower, hand basin and WC.

Outside of the property is a beautiful area of green for the kids to run around and let off their energy on a bright summer’s day, whilst the adults of the group relax at the bench located in the middle.

About the location

BAMPTON

Witney 4 miles; Burford 8 miles and Oxford 19 miles.

The thriving village of Bampton lies in the Thames Valley in the southern Cotswolds, amidst beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. Bampton is one of the oldest villages in England boasting a village shop, Post Office, butcher, and traditional pubs serving good food and real ales, all set around a pretty market square. Ancient customs can still be experienced with the regular morris dancing festivities, which have been enjoyed for over 600 years. Just four miles away is the riverside town of Witney, which offers many attractions including a weekly market dating back to the Middle Ages, an 18th century town hall, and Wychwood Brewery. Burford is possibly one of the most famous of the Cotswolds' locations. With its medieval bridge, old stone houses and attractive Tudor and Georgian frontages, Burford is justifiably one of the most picturesque towns in England. Often referred to as the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds', the town was originally a fortified Anglo-Saxon ford to be an important regional crossroads and wealthy wool town. With little changing over the centuries. Burford is now very popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for it's shopping and antiques, and for the wide variety of places to eat, with restaurants, pubs and teashops. Oxford, the oldest university city in England, boasts interesting Botanical Gardens, museums and libraries, and plays host to many festivals and markets throughout the year. Enjoy a punt on the River Thames or take a boat trip on the River Cherwell. The ancestral home of Winston Churchill and the World Heritage Site of Blenheim Palace is just a short drive away, where many lovely walks can be enjoyed around the landscaped parkland. With so much nearby, Bampton provides a wonderful holiday destination.
