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!
“Great weekend for a village wedding! Thank you so much, Karen & Paul for the card and prosecco and for welcoming my family and my new hubby and I into this stunning barn -it’s such a beautiful house and the sheets are amazing, so silky!”
Lots of love the new Mr & Mrs Walker, May 2019
“A great place for good friends to catch up after years apart! The walks up Bredon Hill, around Broadway Tower and the loop around Snowshill were the perfect antidote to excellent meals at The Star Inn and The Swan! Thank you, Karen for your warm welcome and excellent comms before we came. We were very comfortable. We hope to return!”

“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!”
