A classic Cotswold barn conversion with bags of character, ideal for those in search of a quiet slice of traditional country life.

Found tucked away off a quiet country lane in the sleepy village of Weston-sub-Edge is Milliner’s Barn; a single-story barn conversion in traditional Cotswold stone, offering a tranquil escape to the country for families or smaller groups in search of some peace and quiet. With interiors that beautifully blend the traditional with the modern, this is a cottage with charm by the bucketful. Exposed beams, Cotswold stone walls and vaulted ceilings await guests inside, whilst a small but well-formed farmhouse kitchen with feature AGA gives the barn a distinctly warm, home-away-from-home feel.

Sleeping up to four guests across two good sized bedrooms, it’s a great choice for families or couples sharing, with a sunny decked patio and walled lawn area offering plenty of outdoor space to enjoy when the sun is shining.

​Only one small dog please, thank you.

Downstairs

Entrance

Milliner’s Barn is entered from the cottage’s gravel driveway shared with its sister property, Field House Cottage, accessed past a small suntrap seating area that’s yours to enjoy. Stepping inside, you’ll get a real feel for the cottage’s homely vibe thanks to its bright entrance hall, country cream hues and quarry tiled flooring, with both bedrooms and the family bathroom directly accessible from the entrance hallway.

The Kitchen

The heart of the home, Milliner’s Barn’s beautiful kitchen offers guests the feeling of a real farmhouse escape. Exposed beams lining the ceiling and traditional quarry-style flooring afford the space a traditional feel, whilst cream wooden units, bright tiled walls and all of the mod-cons you should need bring it well and truly into the modern day. A central dining table seating up to four guests offers the perfect spot for everything from sleepy breakfasts through to lively evening feasts, whilst the real stunner of the space can be found in its feature AGA. A true throwback to the barn’s farmhouse past, keep your eyes peeled for the traditional farm scene created from tiles which acts as the AGA’s backdrop; a lovely feature piece adding to the feeling of country charm throughout the property.

Living Room

Through the kitchen sits the barn’s living room; a wonderful space for all of the family to enjoy. High vaulted ceilings, a large exposed stone feature wall and a pretty log burner carry on the traditional rustic feel of the home, brought into the modern day through bright fabrics, contemporary artwork and large, cosy sofas. In here, you’ll find a TV and DVD player for entertainment, plus French doors which open directly onto the barn’s enclosed outdoor decking area.

Bedroom 1

Bedroom 1 sits to the left of the entrance hall, featuring a sink-in 5ft double bed and handy en-suite single shower room. Overlooking the barn’s private lawned garden area, the same country feel of the rest of the property can be found inside, with exposed beams, cream walls and bright pops of colour giving it a homely, relaxed vibe.

Bedroom 2

The larger bedroom of the house sits on the right-hand side of the entrance hall. A large space offering plenty of room in which to unwind, guests will find a comfortable zip-and-link twin bed for easy configuration, country-cream walls and attractive pine furniture, plus built-in wardrobes, a dressing table and large mirror. Light and bright, the bedroom overlooks a small private courtyard patio; the ideal spot for sundowners or a morning cuppa.

Family Bathroom

The main bathroom of the cottage sits between both bedrooms, accessed just off the bright entrance hall. In here you’ll find a modern over-bath shower with square rain shower head, basin and toilet, plus attractive contemporary tiling courtesy of the black and white floor tiles.

Outside

Just like its sister property, Field House Cottage, Milliner’s Barn benefits from bags of private outdoor space for guests of all ages to enjoy. Alongside the small private suntrap patio which sits aside its main entrance doorway, the rear of the property boasts a private fenced decking area – complete with dining furniture and charcoal BBQ – and can be accessed from the large living area. Leading on from this is a pretty, walled lawn; completely private should you need, but also able to be shared with Field House Cottage if you’re staying as a group. Sit back on the decking and relax with an al fresco feast, or let the kids and any doggie visitors run wild on the lawn, safe in the knowledge that they’re completely enclosed.

Local Amenities

Local Amenities

The nearest local amenities can be found in Chipping Campden, just a 5-minute drive from Milliner’s Barn. On the town’s High Street, you’ll find a well-stocked Co-Operative Food, well-equipped for the basic grocery amenities that you’ll need during your stay. For those in search of something a little special, Fillet & Bone, also situated on the High Street, offers beautiful artisan produce sourced from across the Cotswolds; rare-breed meat, seasonal vegetables, fresh breads, charcuterie and freshly-baked cakes and patisserie can all be found here. Slightly further afield, nearby Broadway (10-minute drive) offers a Warner’s Budgensand Nisa, whilst Evesham (25-minute drive) is closest for major supermarkets; an M&S Simply Food, Tesco Superstore, LIDL, ALDI, Morrisonsand Co-Operative Foodcan all be found there.

 

If you fancy taking the hassle out of your stay completely, we recommend planning ahead with a grocery delivery; Ocado, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Morrisons all deliver to Milliner’s Barn.

For drinks and a bite to eat, the local Seagrave Arms is within walking distance of the barn (less than one mile); an award-winning inn serving up tasty all-day dining options. There’s even a pretty beer garden, offering the perfect spot for a sundowner after a busy day exploring the Cotswolds.

Chipping Campden is quite simply one of the finest towns in the Cotswolds – well preserved and full of history but also full of life and bustle.

Its elegant High Street is a delight, described by the historian, G.M. Trevelyan, as “the most beautiful village street now left in the island”: a broad gentle curve flanked on either side by an unbroken sweep of buildings covering a host of architectural styles with buildings dating back to the 14th century.

In the centre of the High Street stands the iconic Market Hall, now in the care and ownership of the National Trust, and built in 1627 by Sir Baptist Hicks to provide shelter for traders selling perishable goods like cheese and butter or precious goods like silks. The paving stones have been worn away by hundreds of years of busy trade – and it’s all too easy to imagine the noise and bustle of traders long ago.

Sir Baptist Hicks was a very wealthy silk merchant and vast and extravagant 17th century monuments to him and his family can be found in the town’s church. St James Church, the town’s most visible landmark, is one of the greates ‘wool’ churches in the Cotswolds, built with money from the flourishing medieval wool trade.  It is famous for having one of the oldest altar tapestries and largest brasses in England.

In 1613, the newly enriched Sir Baptist Hicks began work on a splendid new house in Chipping Campden with equally fashionable formal gardens. Unfortunately not long after its completion it was burnt to the ground by retreating Royalist soldiers during the Civil War and little remains – two pepperpot lodges framing the gateway beside the church, and two exceptional Jacobean banqueting houses, which can be rented through the Landmark Trust.

The Court Barn Museum in the town tells the story of craft and design in the Cotswolds. C R Ashbee brought the Guild of Handicraft to the Old Silk Mill in the town in 1902. Unfortunately it did not prosper and in 1908 many artists had returned to London. However some stayed on, and the Hart family, descendants of George Hart, still have their workshops in the Old Silk Mill today.

The town has a lively calendar of events, including the famous Cotswold Olimpicks, founded in the 17th century by Captain Robert Dover and still celebrated every year – a bizarre mix of sports, games and village festivities.

Chipping Campden has no shortage of excellent places to eat, drink and stay in with some excellent Cotswold hotels, pubs and B&Bs, as well as plenty of holiday cottages to rent. Chipping Campden makes an excellent base for a holiday, with a number of notable gardens, including Hidcote and Kiftsgate, nearby and with wonderful walks in the area, including the 104 mile Cotswold Way, which starts in the town and follows the escarpment all the way to Bath.
