About the property

Barn at Lechlade, The Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, England - Surrounded By Beautiful Countryside And Picturesque Cotswold Villages For You To Explore

Lechlade is a bustling town on the River Thames and the gateway to the Cotswolds. The Barn at Lechlade sits in the grounds of Bridge House, built in Cotswold stone in the late 17th century and retaining many of it's original period charms. It has a large open plan sitting room with plenty of space to relax overlooking the beautiful gardens. The area is steeped in history and dotted with picturesque Cotswold villages to explore. Lechlade is surrounded by beautiful countryside to explore on foot or by bike on one of the many cycle routes. There are plenty of opportunities for fishing or boating on the river or book a round of golf at one of the nearby golf courses. The towns of Cirencester, Cheltenham and Oxford are all within easy reach with all they have to offer, whether it's shopping and fashion you're after or a literary or music festival or a day at the races. If it's fine dining you're after then try one of the fabulous restaurants or gastro pubs all just minutes away.

About Deborah Dyer

I am a mother of 3 with 2 girls now at University and a boy taking his GCSE's. I live in Lechlade with my partner Peter and 2 black labradors. I am a fashion stylist and fitness instructor with an active and busy business and social life. I love entertaining and love sharing my gorgeous barn with guests whilst they visit the Cotswolds.

Deborah Dyer purchased this barn in 2012

Why Deborah Dyer chose Lechlade-on-Thames

I've lived in Lechlade for years and when faced with moving I couldn't leave the area. I like being in the Cotswolds where you can experience the beautiful countryside (including walking my dogs down the Thames every morning) while still being close to Cheltenham and Oxford for that all important retail therapy.

What makes this barn unique

On the edge of Lechlade, you'll sample the real cotswold life - peace and tranquility but with access to all the activities that come with a cotswold village by the Thames. The main town of Lechlade offers riverside pubs and quintessential village shops. Its a popular fishing location and idyllic for that afternoon roast and post meal stroll. A little further up the road Cheltenham and Oxford beckons. Shopping trips to Cheltenham can be organised or you can simply relax in comfort at the Barn. Either way, we offer a real experience you're sure to remember.

Perfect winter holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a magical place. We stayed at the barn over Christmas and it was perfect. It even snowed 2 days after Christmas! The location was brilliant with a 5 min walk into town with pubs, cafes and groceries right there. Deborah was so welcoming and the place had everything you need for a family get a way. Thank you Deborah.

Perfect Accommodation for a getaway in the Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic New Years Eve weekend in Lechlade, the property had everything you could want, it was clean and to a high standard. We even had time for a knock about on the table tennis table. Deborah could not do enough for you and helped us out at short notice when we needed some extras we had forgotten.
