  • "Great barn conversion situated on a working farm."

    Very comfortable! Well located for Oxfordshire's attractions. You just have to put up with the A40.

  • "We had a great few days with family at the Barn."

    We loved having the cows next door provided great entertainment for the kids. The barn is very well kept and spacious. Great location

  • "The Old Barn was the perfect location for our family gathering."

    The accommodation is beautiful inside and out and very well equipped for all needs. Some of the pans and plates were unfortunately put back dirty, but this has nothing to do with the property and was most likely from the previous tenants who didn’t care how it was left. With being on a working farm there’s lost to see and always something going on. Can definitely recommend.

  • "Our second stay at the Old Barn."

    Lovely clean, well equipped property and beautifully decorated for Christmas. The spacious living area is a great space for all the family to be together. The children loved playing football, going in the Wendy house and seeing the cows every day. Very helpful owners.

  • "The barn conversion was perfect accomodation for the whole family especially our young grandchildren."

    Inside there was plenty of space in the open plan downstairs, a well equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, and a toy box including a selection of games and jigsaws. Outside there was a Wendy House, some footballs for them to kick into goals on a grass area and a few inquisitive farm animals to observe. The grounds were well kept and the beds comfortable. We could park our cars close to the house. The location was convenient for Oxford and we managed the turn onto the A40 quite easily. We had a very relaxing stay and highly recommend this lovely house.

  • "Loved our stay."

    Beautiful, modern cottage in farm surroundings. Young kids (4 & 2yrs) loved having games, toys, football pitch, Wendy house and cows to play with!). The guys from the farm (assume owners) were really helpful and made us very welcome.

  • "We had the loveliest time at this house, it was such a beautiful place and had everything we could need."

    The house was spacious and clean, and perfect for 8 people. We also went to Oxford for an evening and this was a short 25 minute journey, which was great. I would definitely stay here again and definitely recommend!

  • "Our stay at the Old Barn was amazing."

    The whole place was spotless and everything we needed was there.The children loved seeing the cows every day and my fears that they might wake us up really early were unfounded. The owners live in the adjacent house and were very friendly and helpful. A great, comfortable base from which to visit Oxford and the Cotswolds.

  • "We had a great stay at the Old Barn."

    We were a group of 4 adults and 3 children. The barn is stunning. It really has the wow factor. As you drive in you are greeted by a barn full of cows! There is large parking area, grand entrance, with huge open space plan. With high ceilings I thought it might get cold but the temperature was perfect, there is under floor heating throughout keeping it toasty warm. We wanted to use the wood burner more but only used it once. It’s so cosy. Up to date kitchen with all the things you would need. I would have liked better quality pans. A few dishwasher tabs but bring some of your own if staying longer. Beds are comfortable, rooms a good size. It’s a short drive from Oxford. We did the park and ride with ease. Also near Witney, nice to take a stroll around. You do have to get in the car to go anywhere. I’m sure in the summer it’s even nicer with a grass area, patio and BBQ. There is washing machine if needed. Overall a very pleasant stay and would recommend.

  • "This is a fabulous barn conversion, ideal for two couples with children."

    Comfortable bedrooms with en-suites. A very well equipped kitchen and large dining table where we could all sit for breakfast and an evening meal. The log burner is a treat on a cold evening. The working farm setting and gardens provide lovely views. A perfect base for taking the park and ride into Oxford City centre and visiting the various Colleges and the fantastic Ashmolean Museum.

About the location

EYNSHAM

Oxford 5 miles.

Dating back to the Bronze Age the thriving village of Eynsham lies on the north bank of the River Thames just 5 miles from the university city of Oxford, and on the edge of the Cotswolds. It boasts many amenities such as a family butcher, traditional pubs and village shop. Visitors can enjoy many lovely walks and cycle routes from the village as well as canoeing, kayaking, horse riding, golf and fishing. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and known as ‘The City of Dreaming Spires’ has an abundance of attractions, namely the 38 colleges of the university, the oldest university teaching room, Bodleian Library, Botanic Gardens and museums as well as playing host to many festivals and markets. Look out for the numerous TV and film locations around the city. Enjoy a 'punt' on the River Thames, take a boat trip on the River Cherwell or visit the many individual shops, riverside pubs, cafes and the ancient buildings of this charming city. Blenheim Palace, the ancestral home of Winston Churchill and a World Heritage Site is just a short drive away where many walks can be enjoyed around the Capability Brown landscaped parkland, great lake and the beautiful village of Woodstock. Also close by is Henley on Thames with its annual Royal Regatta, attracting thousands of visitors each year to watch over 200 races on this charming part of the river. Cotswold Wildlife Park, one of the most beautiful in the country, is also worth a visit and is home to many rare and endangered species, while a little further afield Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare, Warwick with its magnificent castle and Royal Leamington Spa make a lovely day out for all the family. A memorable holiday destination at any time of year.
