Ideally situated for the National Hunt racing and festivals at Cheltenham, along with the ancient Saxon town of Winchcombe and Kiftsgate Court Garden.

The dining area sits to the rear of the room with a traditional farmhouse table, the perfect place to enjoy an evening meal or lazy breakfast, before a day of exploring. There is a small hallway that offers access to the ground floor shower room with WC. Take the steep wooden stairs up to the first floor where you will find the lounge, a stylish space with exposed beams and floor to ceiling windows frames. The cosy sofa with colourful throw is the perfect spot to relax in front of the wood burner and take in the countryside views or watch your favourite movie on the TV/DVD, from the lounge you can also access the wooden balcony. There are double doors that lead from the lounge straight into the stylish king-size bedroom.

Halfpenny Horn Retreat is a smashing property, tastefully furnished with fabulous views. The first floor living area is ideal to take advantage the panoramic aspect with large windows allowing brightness in but still keeping the property warm if visiting in Winter. Meg, the owner, is extremely helpful & informative regarding local walks, places of Read moreinterest & things to do. We (and our dogs) had a thoroughly enjoyable week & look forward to returning sometime in the future. Steven & Ruth Hide

It's a lovely barn with great views and in a beautiful village. We found the steep stairs within the barn and outside a challenge at first but you soon adjust and this adds to the character
