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.
“Our 4th time in 4 years at the Barn. Still the most relaxing place we’ve stayed at. Karen & Paul are always welcoming and happy to suggest new places to see/eat at. We managed a couple of short walks, with the weather, but didn’t do any more because the sofas and log burner enticed us back ‘home’. Lovely! The food at the Star Inn and is just as fresh / prompt / tasty / filling as ever and the staff (Ed & co) make you feel welcome. PS If you like scotch eggs of different types, then try The Star bar snacks. We’ll be back.”

‘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”.”
