Property code: CLEAR

Beautiful, detached property located in a charming village with use of a hot tub and BBQ hut. Ideally positioned to explore the Cotswolds and nearby towns and villages.

Set within 3 acres of shared grounds, both humans and their four-pawed pals are sure to have an unforgettable adventure in this fabulous Cotswolds property. Whether you are relaxing in the hot tub, playing with your dogs in the grounds, cuddling up by the fire pit or dipping your feet and paws in the onsite stream, the choices are endless for a dreamy retreat. Perfectly sized for a couples’ getaway or solo adventure, you can share your experience with your three dogs too, so nobody gets left behind.

Balancing dark and light tones to create a truly luxurious space, this detached barn conversion is brimming with style. Stepping into the property, you will immediately settle into the vibe. The gorgeous open-plan lounge/kitchen boasts function and form, wonderfully indulgent and begging to be enjoyed. Take your evening meal at the dining table or head outside to the shared BBQ hut decorated with rustic wood and furs. Upstairs, the opulence extends to all levels with a fantastic four-poster bed and rich tones. Outside, the dogs will adore exploring the shared enclosed gardens, home to a pond and stream. For two-legged guests, the hot tub will be incredibly tempting after a day’s exploration.

With so much to do onsite and in the surrounding locale, you could easily avoid using the car for a few days. Dabble in a spot of fishing, play a game of croquet on the lawn and say hello to the resident alpaca in the neighbouring fields. Rolling out of your front door, a plethora of walks is available down country lanes and public footpaths. Less than a mile away, the popular Bull and Butcher pub welcomes dogs, so you can enjoy a hearty meal and drinks with your pets by your side.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Words can't describe what a beautiful & perfect holiday we've just had. The Barn has everything you could possibly want & is super comfortable. It's such a peaceful haven with a great hot tub, gazebo to sit in day or night & the fire pit hut is perfect for a cold evening too. Our two dogs were also well provided for & are given the freedom to roam Read morethe grounds which are perfectly safe. The Alpacas are lovely to watch & feed too.

Clear Brook Barn was one of the best holiday cottages weve been to. The Barn is beautifully decorated and appointed, the gardens are sublime and Amanda, the owner, is lovely. The hot tub is the icing on the cake. It was so peaceful and relaxing, like another world, which we hope to return to very soon.

We loved this well-equipped and comfortable barn conversion in the middle of the Buckinghamshire countryside. The hostess was welcoming and so happy to see us after months in lockdown (the welcome bottles of prosecco were a nice touch!). Everything we could have wanted was on hand, including friendly dogs and enigmatic alpaca. The weather wasn't grRead moreeat for several days but the barn was a great place to hunker down, and we could still use the hot tub and barbeque hut (we so want one of those!). Hide

Clear Brook Barn is amazing! We spent a week here in August. The barn was well thought out with absolutely everything you could possibly need. The grounds are beautiful and secure for dogs. Wallace the resident Alpaca roams freely around the gardens but if you have a dog with a high chase instinct Amanda will happily secure him in the meadow. The hRead moreot tub was fantastic.
