Milliner’s Barn is entered from the cottage’s gravel driveway (shared with its sister property, Field House Cottage) and accessed via a small suntrap seating area that’s yours to enjoy. Stepping inside this single-story property, you’ll get a real feel for the cottage’s homely vibe thanks to its bright entrance hall, country cream hues and quarry tile flooring.
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 black and white contemporary floor tiles.
Left from the Entrance Hall to…
The larger bedroom of the house sits on the right-hand side of the entrance hall. A large space offering plenty of room to relax, 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.
Right from the Entrance Hall to…
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, this bedroom has exposed beams, cream walls and bright pops of colour giving it a homely, relaxed vibe.
The heart of the home, Milliner’s Barn’s beautiful kitchen offers guests the feeling of a real farmhouse escape. Exposed beams and traditional quarry-tile flooring give the space a traditional feel, whilst cream wooden units, bright tiled walls and all the mod-cons you should need bring it well and truly into the present day. A central dining table, seating up to four guests, offers the perfect spot for everything from relaxed breakfasts through to lively evening feasts. The real stunner of the space is the feature AGA; a modern take on the barn’s farmhouse past, with a tiled backdrop of a traditional farm scene.
A wonderful space for everyone to enjoy, the vaulted and beamed ceilings, large exposed stone feature wall and a gas-fired, woodburner effect fireplace 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, plus French doors which open directly onto the barn’s enclosed outdoor decking area.
Milliner’s Barn benefits from lots 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 living room. Leading on from patio 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. (Field House Cottage sleeps 6 adults + 2 children.) Sit back on the decking and relax with an al fresco feast or let the kids and any doggie visitor run wild on the lawn, safe in the knowledge that they’re completely enclosed.
For drinks and a bite to eat, the local Seagrave Arms is within walking distance of Milliner’s 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 sun-downer after a busy day exploring the Cotswolds. A community ‘Village Bar’ serves drinks and bar bites and is also a short walk from the Barn.

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.
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. (See our blogpost: ‘8 Quirky Cotswold Traditions‘.)
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.
