Spring Barn

Great Rollright

Family Friendly
Dog Friendly
Lying deep in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside, with trees, rolling fields and fluffy sheep as far as the eye can see, Spring Barn is a delightful, dog-friendly barn conversion offering peace and tranquillity by the bucket load. Sitting at the end of a private drive, this glass and stone barn melds seamlessly into its rural surroundings and offers glorious views over the Swere Valley. The simple yet stylish design ensures it is a charming base to explore from, with Chipping Norton, Stow-on-the-Wold, and Woodstock within touching distance. Alternatively, it could also be the perfect retreat to hunker down and escape real life…just for a little while.
Full Description
Spring Barn is surrounded by beautiful countryside, tucked away at the end of a lane which winds its way through the fields. Hidden within its thick stone walls, where hay was once stored, and sheep took shelter from the weather, you’ll now find a modern, rural escape offering every creature comfort. The symmetry of this solid stone barn is both welcoming and pleasing to the eye.

Huge glass doors reveal an open-plan living space with stone flooring and a part-vaulted ceiling, whilst full-height doors on the opposite wall offer a glimpse of the view beyond, as well as access to the patio and garden. The suspended fireplace in the corner is a discreetly modern and contemporary addition to the living room. There’s a sleek and stylish kitchen and dining area which makes eating a pleasure, and there’s also a handy ground-floor cloakroom. Upstairs, a glass balustrade enhances the sense of light and space and leads to two comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom.

Surrounding the barn, there’s a large, private garden and a patio where you can enjoy outside dining, morning coffee in the fresh air, or perhaps sneak in an indulgent sunny afternoon hammock-sized snooze. There’s an open-fronted garage, plenty of parking and a paddock with grazing sheep and horses directly beyond the garden.

Ground Floor

Open Plan Living Area:
Large glass doors lead into the spacious living room with stone flooring and plenty of seating for four, with two, two-seater sofas and a pair of easy chairs. The dry stone chimney breast forms a real focal point, as does the contemporary, suspended wood-burning fireplace. Spotlights that can be dimmed for a gentler glow dot the ceiling, and there’s a Smart TV and plenty of books, covering a variety of genres.

Kitchen/Dining Room:
The monochrome colours of the kitchen-dining room are a perfect representation of the natural tones that can be found throughout the barn, and this is a sleek and well-appointed space. Black granite surfaces sit on top of mid-grey cupboards, and you’ll find all the practical equipment needed including a full-size dishwasher, fridge and freezer plus a full oven and a gas hob. A dark wood dining table with two benches gives ample seating for four guests. There’s a door to the rear hall/boot room which has a stable door, coat hooks and a welly rack where you can dry outdoor gear after countryside rambles, plus the utility cupboard, which houses the washing machine.

This handy space is in the rear hall/boot room and has a WC, hand basin, vanity storage unit and a large mirror.

First Floor

A wooden staircase with a sisal runner, handrail and glass stair panel leads up to the first floor. At the top, the galleried landing looks down from a glass balustrade to the living room below. The high, vaulted ceiling ensures this area feels light and spacious.

Bedroom One:
After all the fresh country air you’re sure to sleep like a baby in this peaceful bedroom. A comfy king-size bed lies beneath a roof light (there is a pull-down blind), reading lamp-topped bedside tables stand on either side of the bed and there’s a window to the side with views over the Swere Valley. Built-in wardrobes ensure there is lots of storage, whilst roof beams add character.

Bedroom Two:
The second of the two bedrooms is an inviting twin, with a pair of wooden single beds and a small occasional table with a reading lamp which sits between the two, acting as a bedside table for both. With a roof light and a large window, this room feels bright and cheerful. There are built-in wardrobes and a button-back occasional chair, where you can curl up with one of the many classic children’s books found throughout the barn. Step through the wardrobe into Narnia or maybe take a stroll through the 100-acre wood with Winne the Pooh.

Sitting between the two bedrooms is the modern bathroom, home to a double-ended bath with a shower above it, which is just perfect for lazy soaks after a day of exploring. There’s also a hand basin and WC and a large mirror. Natural light comes from the roof light.


The post and rail fence which lines the driveway draws the eye to the sturdy, simple lines of the barn. The gravel driveway provides lots of parking, and you can drive right up to the door. The garden wraps around Spring Barn, flanked on one side by hedgerows and to the other by a paddock in which you’ll often see grazing sheep and a horse or two. To the rear of the house is a stone patio with a wooden table and two benches and a cantilevered parasol. During the warmer months, there’s also a double canvas deckchair and a hammock. The countryside views are simply beautiful with nothing but trees and fields and the Swere Valley in the distance.

Lovely tranquil location, a great getaway and topped off by the friendly horses and sheep. A luxury, well appointed cottage with everything one could want. Would definitely stay again.

The location and barn are great - so peaceful and private and the barn cosy and nicely done. We had a great few days and enjoyed the easy access to good dog walks - we wish we had stayed longer and plan to revisit!

We had a wonderful two night stay in this beautiful barn. Great location being surrounded by countryside but also near Chipping Norton and other local places. The barn is well laid out, great views, comfy beds and a large kitchen where we cooked breakfast and dinner. Would definitely stay again!

Great property, the barn is in a secluded location but close to footpaths and Chipping Norton. Well equipped, quality furniture and fittings and warm.

Beautiful warm and cosy barn, its totally private and secluded. There is no noise or light pollution but you are only a short drive from Chipping Norton. The barn is so well designed, the beds are very comfortable, the bathrooms are all brand new. The underfloor heating in the downstairs along with the suspended log burner make it such a wonderful retreat away from everything and the views are stunning. We brought our small dog and the gardens were perfect for him. We can't wait to return!

Chipping Norton, or ‘chippy’ as it’s known locally, and Jeremy Clarkson’s Diddly Squat Farm Shop are 4 miles and 6 miles respectively.
