Set in abundant farmland, you'll find a real sense of tranquillity at Siskin Barn - the most beautiful space to gather friends and family, whether for a long overdue reunion or special celebration. At the focal point of the home is an open-plan kitchen/dining area lit up by glorious natural light, while four rustic bedrooms accommodating nine guests lie upstairs, making it the ideal place for a get together. Signed off by a luxurious hot tub and only a stone's throw from Cotswold hotspots Broadway, Blockley and Stow-on-the-Wold, as well as historic Stratford-upon-Avon, this serene bolthole is your base for exploring some of England's most scenic spots.
Full Description
Stepping into Siskin Barn, you’re immediately taken away by the peaceful ambience of this place. At the heart of the home is a beautiful light-speckled dining area, where a long table hosts nine guests thanks to benches lined with comfortable faux fur cushioning. To the right of the dining area, a quiet living area with a sumptuous sofa and wood burner offer a place for adults to relax and switch off. Meanwhile, to left you’ll find the kitchen ripe for rustling up farm shop finds, and a snug simply made for the kids.

Wander past the floor to ceiling windows in the dining area and you'll find bedrooms one and four on the right hand side of the home. Here you'll quickly feel the calming ambience of Siskin Barn's first floor, where there's more than enough room for extended friends and family. Stroll back downstairs, through the snug and up the stairs to discover bedrooms two and three, which sit on the left part of the barn. Mirroring the serene feel of the rest of the home, they're punctuated by traditional beams that infuse this place with rural charm.

As the glowing sun sinks below the skyline, take a seat at Siskin Barn's abundant seating area before heading around the corner for an evening dip in the hot tub, or whipping up a feast on the BBQ. If you're feeling like a wander, don't forget to check out the beautiful River Avon and its early 15th century bridge.


Ground floor


Snug:
A space for the kids, the snug is burrowed on the left side of the house and equipped with a large smart TV, comfortable sofa and crackling wood burner that makes it feel undeniably cosy. We love the practicality of this room - perfect for when the children or extended family want to fall asleep in front of a movie.

Kitchen/Dining Area:
Whether you rustle up delicious farm shop produce or make a fruit board for the kids, the kitchen is a light-drenched space featuring all the essentials, including a Nespresso machine for your morning cup of joe. Stroll into the adjacent dining area and you'll find the beating heart of this magnificent space. With seating for nine composed of communal benches and luxurious throws, its close proximity to the kitchen will make it your main hangout throughout your stay.

Sitting Area:
Flooded with light that pours in from two windows, the sitting room is the ultimate spot to unwind and relax after a day of adventures. Whether you curl up with a book or cheers a glass of bubbly, enjoy the sound of the crackling fire or flick on the TV while you soak up the ambience that this space emits.

Shower Room:
With a light and airy feel to it, the ground floor shower room features a WC, hand basin and shower, and lies just round the corner from the hot tub, making it oh-so handy.

First floor

Up the stairs from the ground floor snug lies bedrooms two and three which make the perfect spot for friends and family. Close by is bathroom one burrowed in a charming nook.

Bedroom One:
Bedroom three is a spot that exudes serenity thanks to two generous windows, a plush king-size bed and single bed, and rustic beams. Don't forget to make use of the complimentary bathrobes and flip flops when you fancy a dip in the hot tub!

Bedroom Two:
There's a palpable sense of calm in bedroom two. Featuring a soft double bed, two generous windows and a dresser for getting ready for dinner, its traditional beams complete the space with rural charm.

Bathroom:
Enjoy a luxurious soak in the bath or take a rejuvenating shower in the bathroom, which is completed by a WC and hand basin.

Wander back through the house to the dining area and pass the French doors to the second set of stairs. Once upstairs, you'll find bedrooms one and four, as well as bathroom two.

Bedroom Three:
Serene and peaceful, we love the relaxing feel that bedroom one offers. With its sumptuous double bed, generous skylight and rustic beams, it's signed off by two charming bedside tables, a chest of drawers and an elegant mirror.

Bedroom Four:
Whether you choose bedroom four for the kids or friends, it makes for a calm space for falling asleep on the two single beds after a day discovering the countryside. Natural light, a chest of drawers and mirror finish this room off perfectly.

Bathroom:
Take a bath or refreshing shower in the bathroom on the right side of the house, which is signed off by a WC and hand basin.

Outside

Siskin Barn's outside space really elevates this special spot. With the soothing sound of birdsong weaving around the property, there's an enclosed garden where furry friends can roll around while you sit and pop open the prosecco at the chic, cushioned seating area. Wander around the corner and dip your toe in the inviting hot tub as the sun sinks across the rural skyline.

Points of Note
  • Book with us to get exclusive discounts to top attractions and experiences. 
  • A maximum of 3 well-behaved dogs are permitted at an additional cost. 
  • Please make yourself aware of the hot tub rules and hours of use. Four guests maximum are permitted in the hot tub at one time.
  • It is our policy not to take bookings for single sex group celebrations, which includes Stag and Hen nights, or groups where the majority are under 25 years. 
  • Siskin Barn is located on a working farm, and at certain times of the year, there is more activity than others. In the summer (August/September), while the owners are harvesting, tractors and a trailer will be coming backward and forwards filling the grain stores, which are situated close to the barn. This will not impact your stay, but is something to be aware of, particularly if you have young children or dogs.
Neighbouring Properties
Siskin Barn is one of four Oosland Barns holiday lets and can be booked with any one of them for families or friends wanting to travel together but have their own space. You can share the properties between your group, but please bear in mind you would not have enough seating to necessarily sit/eat together.
