Surrounded by picturesque countryside in the heart of Wiltshire, this unique barn conversion is perfectly placed for a rural getaway that the whole family will enjoy -- four-legged members included. Accessed via a long driveway which boasts far-reaching country views, the property sits alongside the owners’ beautiful characterful farmhouse. It sleeps four across two cosy bedrooms, which includes an enticing mezzanine king-size bedroom with en-suite shower room above the open-plan living space. After a day of adventure, enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot tub beneath the stars.

Unwind under the vaulted ceiling in the lounge/kitchen/diner, which has been furnished with care to ensure all your comforts are considered. It cleverly combines contemporary style with original features, resulting in a refined yet homely aesthetic. Cook a family feast in the stylish kitchen area and eat together in the adjacent dining space, perfect for cosy meals for four. Put your feet up in the lounge area, where plush sofas make it an inviting space to curl up and watch a film. Fido is sure to love the underfloor heating, which will keep them toasty wherever they snooze. Also on the ground floor, you’ll find a beautiful four-poster bedroom with en-suite shower room, while a floating staircase from the lounge leads to the mezzanine bedroom set into the eaves. The pretty terrace makes the perfect spot for an al fresco breakfast; why not use fresh eggs from the resident hens?

This is a beautiful cottage. Tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The location is so beautiful as are the grounds of the cottage- we loved strolling around them with our dog. The hot tub is fantastic and is well secluded from the adjacent farmhouse giving plenty privacy. Friendly and helpful hosts nearby if needed. Very much enjoyed our stay Read moreand exploring this part of England. Hide

Hares Barn was a lovely Home away from home for the weekend. It was stunning, well furnished & well equipped, and close to all the areas we wished to visit. We loved the attention to detail in the accommodation- especially the Christmas trees & enjoyed the use of the hot tub.

The barn is a really lovely mix of old and new. It was beautifully clean. The open staircase from the living room leads to a bedroom that has a completely open toilet and shower at the top of the stairs, so you really have to know your fellow travellers very well!

The Cottage is stylish and restored in a professional way. We didnt like that people walk very close to the guests terrace but nobody introduces themselves. There is no working internet and just a few tv Channels. No washing machine and just 1 Set of Towels per Person per week. Not so nice. The tub was great, really hot. No reason to return.
