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.

  • “Accommodation 5 star, spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, all mod cons in kitchen, fizz in the fridge (hic). Lovely walks nearby, some lovely villages and towns.”

  • “We are so grateful for all the help and attention we have received. You have been 5 star hosts! Wonderful, jaw droppingly beautiful countryside, who could ask for anything more?”

  • “Special thanks from us all for Karen, in making sure everything was just perfect here at the barn- there is real attention to detail. We shall be spreading the news about this place Down Under!”

  • “Love, love, love it! The highlight has to be borrowing dominoes at the pub and playing until the early hours. Just don’t want to leave.”

  • “Highly recommend The Mount at Stanton, Swan at Broadway and The Lamb in Stratford upon Avon. We have been to numerous self catering cottages but this has to be the crème de la crème. Look forward to returning one day.”

    Simon and Deborah, Surrey. Sep 2012

  • 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.

Gorgeous place and wonderful hosts. We have had a fabulous weekend and will almost certainly return. The Star- a useful bonus.

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.
