Overview

About the property

Immaculate barn conversion sleeps 6, pets welcome, hot tub, wood burner & pool

A warm welcome to Church End.

Church End Farm Barn is a converted, handsome, period, red brick detached barn conversion on the edge of the village of Church End in a rural location with access to delightful countryside walks. The stylish and sympathetic barn conversion, took place in 2014 and is located across from the principal house and is set within a private red brick walled garden .

Internally,the property displays the original exposed A- frame beams, and has large glazed panel windows together with traditional arrow slit windows. The three bedrooms have vaulted ceilings, exposed original beams, picture glass panel windows and roof lights. Externally,the barn benefits from an enclosed gravelled courtyard with private gated parking, flat lawns, mature borders and a gated pedestrian side exit out to open countryside which leads down towards the River Avon. To the east the barn is secluded by established woodland.

Church End Farm Barn remains a building of special historical interest. Sporting opportunities in the adjoining village include tennis and five-a-side football, horse riding and there is also a children's play area. The nearby hotel offers a championship standard 18-hole golf course, leisure and recreational facilities, and there is fishing along the River Avon.

Regency Cheltenham, Worcester and Gloucester are only a short drive away. With the Malvern Hills to the west and Bredon Hill to the east, the village sits comfortably between two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and enjoys the wonderful views that they afford.

The picturesque, peaceful village of Church End lies 2.2 miles to the north of the Cotswold town of Tewkesbury. Take a riverside stroll along the River Severn or a boat trip along the River Avon .

Marvel at the 12th-century ceiling in Tewkesbury Abbey, then discover Tewkesbury's famous network of alleyways and the medieval old town where you can explore the 'Vintage and Antiques Trail'. Volunteers from 'Tewkesbury In Bloom' are responsible for the amazing display of flowers which decorate the town during the year. Wander along Tewkesbury High Street and you'll find an eclectic mix of shops, cafes, tea rooms, pubs and bistros and while there, don't forget to try the world famous Tewkesbury Mustard!

Bristol, Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon and Bath are within easy reach for day trips. Major Cotswold events are held close by throughout the year such as the Badminton Horse Trials, the Cheltenham Races, summer concerts at Westonbirt Arboretum ,Tewkesbury's Medieval Festival and the Royal International Air Tattoo at Fairford.

Church End benefits from excellent access to the M5 and M50 motorways. Several superb restaurants can be found in local villages and of course, in Regency Cheltenham. Shop, pubs and restaurant within 1 mile.

The outdoor private heated swimming pool is free of charge (late April/ May to late September/ early October only) and is available by arrangement with the owners. Normally weekdays between 10am and 4pm from late April to early October , as this will allow for cleaning and maintaining of the pool. Hot tub easily accommodates 5 people and is available and exclusive all year round.

Lovely property and hosts

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay in Church End Farm Barn - a lovely converted property in a very pretty village and a pleasant walk from a larger village with a convenient shop, nice pub and large children's play area. Simon and Zanetta were great hosts and were very quick and obliging to help with queries. The welcome pack and general provisions provided were very good, and the champagne was particularly well received! The absolute winner for this barn was the swimming pool and hot tub which we used a lot and made it a wonderful stay.

Lovely. We enjoyed every minute of it.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful conversion in a beautiful village. We were met by the owner and shown around, including the pool, hot tub and jacuzzi! They were helpful and quick to respond to any questions throughout our stay. The welcome pack was spot on. Walks nearby were great, including down to the River Avon. Lovely for the dog and the kids had a great time investigating the cross country course just down the path. Basically everything you could ask for, including sky movies which was fab for a night in after the pool and a barbie. The only thing to note is there are pretty low beams upstairs on the landing and at the entrance, as is not surprising in a building like this, and one bathroom downstairs. Neither was a problem for us.

From the moment we got to the Barn we were blown away by the place. The owners could not of been more helpful we have stayed in many a place but can honestly say never had such hospitality !

Barn is beautiful children spent hours in the pool or exploring the countryside. Lots to do In Tewksbury Town and can highly recommend the The Kingfisher fish and chip shop we sat in and had lovely food then went for a walk along the river. Barn had everything you could want can’t wait to book again thanks again for sharing your wonderful home X

Church End Farm Barn

  • 5 of 5

Simon and Zanneta were the most perfect hosts for my families 2 week stay at the barn. We were provided with a welcome hamper which got us off to the perfect start.

The barn is very well appointed and is in a great location to get to the local villages and the Cotswolds area. There are lovely walks right on the door step!

The pool and hot tub were excellent and were well used by us throughout our stay.

I found that any questions I had were answered very quickly, especially when I asked about fishing and Zanneta printed me a while host of local info.

All in all we had a fab time and would not hesitate in going back.
