This property is a converted former farm building, located in the Cotswold countryside in the grounds of Clattercote Priory. It’s the perfect base for a couples’ break or a getaway for a young family.

Located on a farm in the grounds of the 12th century Clattercote Priory and surrounded by horse paddocks, it’s the very definition of a Cotswold hideaway. Close to the village of Clattercote, the property is at the centre of the historic-cultural axis of Oxford, Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon. Banbury is about six miles away, and is a good place for shopping thanks to the Castle Quay Shopping Centre and night entertainment. Other top visitor attractions in the area include Warwick Castle, Sulgrave Manor, Heritage Motor Museum, the Malvern Hills and Blenheim Palace. There are plenty of footpaths in the vicinity, so it’s a great place for walkers to stay for a short break too.

On arrival at the cottage you will notice that it embraces an open-plan layout. The lounge area has ample comfortable seating, with a TV. You may be impressed to see that the original fireplace and huge chimney breast has been retained as well as the old bread oven. The kitchen area is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge with ice box, a dishwasher, a washer/ dryer, and a microwave. Also on the ground floor there is a comfortable double bedroom. Close by, there is a bathroom that contains a shower over bath and WC. Upstairs there is a double bed on the mezzanine floor overlooking the living area below, please note that the stairs are steep. There is also a fold up bed available for an extra visitor (please book ahead). There is no internal connection between the cottages.

Outside, there is a terrace and the pleasant garden space accessed from the house via French doors. The garden and farm is great place for outgoing children, as they can explore the grounds and play with the farmer’s friendly dogs. The garden area is enclosed from the farm and contains outdoor furniture, and BBQs are provided too for evening cookouts. Guests are welcome to wander throughout the grounds – the owners ask that you take note that there is a pond near to the main house.


Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage is very nice and well appointed with a huge enclosed garden great for dogs! However what you dont know until you arrive is that it is very close to a railway line with trains running from shortly after 6am and due to an unregulated crossing they sound a loud warning noise-if youre a light sleeper this is a little frustrating. Lots of grRead moreeat walks nearby-particularly like the canal path. Pillows were very flat and need replacing. Main bedroom needs blackout curtains Hide

Reviewed by Tessa, 18th May 2019

The cottage and equipment were good. The stairs up to the second bedroom could be an issue. They were very steep and the bathroom was through the door in the bedroom. Could disturb the people sleeping in that room. We had a problem with the patio door which the owners sorted immmediately and were very apologetic.

Lovely location and cottage was very comfortable. We found the through door to the bathroom from a privacy point of view difficult.

We found this super little barn, easily from the directions given by the owner. Lovely position in the Oxfordshire countryside and only about 20 Minutes drive to Banbury. Ample private parking. Cosy, but not small, the living/kitchen area has everything we could need and felt like home, from home! Very comfortable large bed and ample drawer space fRead moreor clothes, although hanging space rather small for 2 people. We enjoyed our short stay and wiould certainly book again. Hide

Would recommend Baggins Barn very highly. Dog friendly, we were made to feel very welcome by our hosts. Beautiful location. Great country pubs nearby.
