Old Post House Barn

Beautiful self catering cotswold getaway

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.

  • “We stayed at the Old Post House Barn to be close to family in a time of need. Karen & Paul made us extremely welcome. The excellent accommodation provided an oasis of calm for us all. The confortable feeling and clever design of the barn made us all feel we would like to ‘pick it up’ and take it home.”

  • “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.”

  • “Me and my now husband spent a couple of nights at the barn following our wedding day and it was just what we needed – a nice relaxing and secluded area perfect for walks and chilling out. Karen was in continual contact with us making us feel extremely welcome and the barn was absolutely beautiful. Would highly recommend a stay there.”

Wedding No 2 for 2019!

Wedding No 2 for 2019!

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!

Guest Review

“What’s not to like and what to add that’s not been said before!!! Absolutely super place to stay-welcoming hosts, cosy barn, excellent location. For us it was  great to have lovely walks right on our doorstep and then come back and chill. The Star opposite as an added bonus- Sunday lunch was first class, Monday quiz night a lot of fun and Tuesday night ‘two for one’ meant no cooking needed to be done! What was also an added bonus for us (and pretty hard to find these days) was that we could stay for three nights and weren’t tied into Saturday to Saturday or Friday to Friday schedule. Perfect in every way.”
