Full Description & House Rules
As you turn into Pages Piece from May Lane, you’ll instantly feel the attention to detail that the owner has paid to the immediate surrounding, with its planting and immaculate parking area to the front of the house. Beautiful, newly laid, dry stone walls surround the house, patio and garden. To the front are far-reaching views out over the surrounding farmland and Cotswold countryside, while a gate to the side leads you to the garden and patio.
At the front of Rowan House is a planted parking area for two cars. A footpath leads around the right-hand side of the house to a gate, through which are steps down to a private garden and a large patio with a BBQ and garden furniture for seating and eating alfresco. The garden can also be accessed via the living room’s bi-fold doors and the French doors in Bedroom 2. At the back of the patio are steps up to a gate, which leads to the shared private parking area and the refuse/recycling centre.
Inside, Rowan House has been furnished and decorated to a very high specification, with a relaxing grey, ivory and white colour scheme throughout, engineered oak flooring downstairs and a silver-grey, deep-pile carpet upstairs. Every detail has been thought of for guests’ comfort from the fully equipped and stylish kitchen-diner to the relaxing living room, and from the fabulous double bedrooms to the luxury bath and shower rooms. On the ground floor are two bedrooms (both standard doubles with one ensuite) while upstairs are two king-size bedrooms sharing a family bathroom.
Ebrington village is within easy reach of some of the most treasured and popular locations in the Cotswolds, including Chipping Campden (just 2.5 miles away), Broadway, Moreton-in-Marsh, Bourton-on-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold, and it’s only two miles from Charingworth Manor wedding venue and 12 miles south of Stratford-upon-Avon. The village has an award-winning pub, two fabulous farm shops (veg/fruit/deli and meat) and some great circular walks through beautiful countryside right from the heart of the village – no extra travel required! Arrival by train is easy too, with Moreton-in-Marsh mainline station only 6.5 miles away.

The village of Ebrington is the perfect location for a Cotswold getaway, with an award-winning pub, two fabulous farm shops and some great circular walks through beautiful countryside. You really don’t need to venture further afield to have a relaxing time and get a taste of the true Cotswolds, but if you do feel like a short trip, Ebrington is just 2.5 miles from Chipping Campden – one of the finest market towns in the Cotswolds and 6.5 miles from the thriving market town of Moreton-in-Marsh.
The Ebrington Arms is a stone’s throw away. According to The Times, this is the UK’s #1 village pub. It would be hard to disagree as well. They’ve held 2 AA Rosettes for over a decade and picked up a few gongs along the way, the most recent being SAWDAY’s Best Pub For Food 2020 and The Good Pub Guide’s County Dining Pub of the Year 2019. They were South-West England’s Pub of the Year 2019 and 3 times CAMRA Pub of the Year Winner & 4 times runner-up and are certified three-stars from the Soil Association for organic produce on their menus. We recommend you book a table as foodies from far and wide flock there to eat and enjoy their Yubberton beers, Yubby, Yawnie and Goldie.
Just a few minutes down May Lane is Vegetable Matters Farm Shop and Café and Fresh Meat Matters butchers. The farm shop sells Drinkwater Farm vegetables and juicy seasonal fruits, bread, milk, jams, preserves and deli items, while the butchers shop sells a wide range of locally sourced meats.

If you would like to have a break from cooking, we recommend local caterer Isobel Slatter who can prepare anything from dinner party food to canapés. All dietary requirements catered for. Contact Isobel on 07786127449.
Walking: Vegetable Matters has produced a wonderful walking booklet – 5 Walks – with detailed information on five circular walks starting and ending at Vegetable Matters – all passing Rowan House. The farm has kindly provided a copy of the booklet for guests to use. You will find it in the Welcome Guide at the house.
Just under 3 miles away is the National Trust’s Hidcote. One of the finest arts and crafts gardens in the country, Hidcote was created by American horticulturist Major Lawrence Johnston, circa 1905. Divided into a series of garden ‘rooms’, each one boasts its own character, intertwined with narrow pathways, beautiful views and plants bursting to life at every turn. A must-visit for the green fingered.
