Property code: 77493

This sympathetically converted barn sits within acres of farmland without another dwelling in site, off-grid and perfect for those wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Experience off-grid living at its finest at this beautifully converted barn, on a working farm in the heart of the Gloucestershire countryside. Sleeping four people across two bedrooms and welcoming two waggy-tailed friends, this pretty property in the hamlet of Kencot sits within acres of farmland that you are free to explore. You are sure to love the secluded location and your pups are certain to enjoy running free in the enclosed garden.

Taking its energy from a generator and wind turbine, staying at this off-grid barn is a truly unique experience. Step inside and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner and the eclectic style of the decor. Cook up a storm in the beautifully-finished kitchen with its bespoke cabinets and granite worktops, and then serve up your feast in the dining area, which is set in the heart of the barn conversion with farmland views. Alternatively, step outside onto the patio and dine alfresco while your dogs enjoy the freedom of the enclosed garden. After dinner, stretch out in front of the wood burner in the lounge area, or retire with a good book to the cosy snug. When the day is done, climb the wooden stairs up to the first floor where you will find two gorgeous bedrooms to choose from.

Well behaved pups are welcome at the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens (3.5 miles), although they aren’t allowed indoors or into the Bat Belfry, Reptile House, Children’s Farmyard or any areas with free-ranging animals. Your four-legged friends are also welcome at Stanway House and Fountain (25 miles), where you can see the tallest gravity fountain in the world and explore the wonderful water garden, which dates back to the 1720s.

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

Just returned from a stay at Jimmys barn and cannot recommend strongly enough. The barn has everything you could ever wish for in such a peaceful setting. It is really comfy and feels like a home from home. We took some lovely long walks. There is a lovely pub not far and it is super dog friendly. We will definitely be returning.

A perfect holiday property. The barn is very well equipped and in the most beautiful location. We loved the stillness and silence - no strimmers, lawn mowers or traffic noise. The wildlife right outside the windows was a constant source of entertainment and wonder. The barn is spacious, comfortable, warm and full of interesting treasures to delightRead more. We were still discovering new things after two weeks. The owners are charming and very helpful. A holiday home to be recommended. Hide

Be aware that the property is in the middle of a field and a car is essential for access. Once there it is actually only a short walk to a couple of the neighbouring villages where there are pubs.

Highly recommend this cottage! Had a lovely stay here. The property is clean, cosy and feels just like home. The decor is fab and feels like there are a lot of memories. There are great walks right from the doorstep, we walked to a lovely dog friendly pub in the village of Alvescot which had great food. Will definitely be returning here :)

A wonderful barn conversion to a holiday home. Full of quirky items. Located in an exceptionally peaceful area, surrounded by fields 360 degrees.
