Lovely Cotswold barn conversion with 'upside down living', located in a pretty village.
The barn is situated in the heart of the pretty and friendly village of Ashton under Hill, which nestles at the foot of Bredon Hill and is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). We are just inside the Worcestershire border with Gloucestershire. Bredon Hill, which is one of largest outlier Cotswolds in the area, has gorgeous views and is popular with walkers, mountain bikers and horse riders.
We have a variety of national and local paths and ways in close proximity. The Wychavon Way goes through the village and the Cotswold Way starts at Chipping Campden, a twenty minute drive away. Why not drive out to the Malverns, a beautiful and ancient range of hills with breathtaking views. If you are a gardener, there are many fine examples to visit including Hidcote Manor and Batsford Arboretum. Historians can root out Roman ruins at Chedworth and medieval castles in Warwick and Kenilworth.
Last weekend, the barn was honoured to host another wedding party! There was definitely a party atmosphere in there on Saturday as bride, bridesmaids and mother of the bride all changed into their wedding finery for the village ‘woodland wedding’ of Emma and Oliver in Emma’s grandparent’s garden. The bride looked stunning. After a great day, the happy couple spent a couple of nights in the barn. Emma has kindly allowed us to post a few pictures. Big thank you to the new Mr & Mrs for choosing the barn and we hope you have a fabulous honeymoon!
‘This must be my 8th or 9th stay in the Old Post House Barn. As usual it was absolutely lovely and the new addition of the little garden is wonderful . We could sit outside with drinks and enjoy the warm weather late into the evening. Super hosts, Karen & Paul made our stay extra special. I have no doubt I will be back.”

“I was slightly worried as I brought my girlfriend here for a surprise short break. Suffice to say, according to her, “You have set the bar too high!” We were both blown away by the barn. It was perfect for a couple of nights away. Immaculately clean, beautifully presented and full of small touches which just added to the experience. In short we loved staying at the Old Post House Barn and will definitely be back!”

“We have had a fantastic stay in the OPHB. The location was excellent as we had a family event at the pub across the road. The barn itself is fabulous, spotlessly clean, warm and inviting. We’ve enjoyed some lovely fires and it is so well equipped. We would stay here again if the need arises. Karen, you were so welcoming. Thank you.”
