Lovely property and perfect for a family get together.

We had a great family weekend at Green Farm House. It is an extremely spacious house full of character, with large bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen and lovely views. Aldsworth is a quiet village away from the tourist hot spots of Bibury and Bourton, but still beautiful and with a nice pub within walking distance from the house. We loved the layout of the house, which enabled us all to spread out when we needed to, as well as eat together at the long table. We would love to stay again. Thank you!

Green Farm House sits alongside the village green in the village of Aldsworth near Burford with fine views of the surrounding countryside. The village is ideally located to explore the Cotswold towns of Burford, Northleach and Cirencester, and the beautiful villages of Bibury and Coln St Aldwyns - both in walking distance. The Sherborne Arms (circa 1799) is a family-owned pub and is within a short walk. Aldsworth has a village hall and the cricket club plays their fixtures in the field next to the hall. St. Bartholomew’s church dates to late Norman times and has a 15th century spire - an unusual feature for a Cotswold church - which can be seen for miles around. The popular Cripps Stone Barn wedding venue is just under two miles away.
