Each cottage has a hot tub and a wood burning stove making these cosy retreats after day’s spent walking, visiting Stratford-upon-Avon or exploring the many Cotswold hot spots which are within easy reach.
Full Description
If you’re looking to get away to the picturesque Cotswold countrywide, while still being close to local amenities, The Brambling at Oosland offers both. Just a twenty-minute country stroll to Bidford-on-Avon with its selection of pubs and a short drive from Stratford-upon-Avon, these converted barns are surrounded by farmland.

Staying at The Brambling with family or friends is the perfect opportunity to spend time together while still having your own space. Both of the two converted barns sleep four in two comfortable bedrooms which overlook the garden and country views in the distance. Open plan living areas provide plenty of space and being set across one floor The Brambling suits a wide range of groups. Open beams and a roaring woodburner in each cottage adds a wonderful atmosphere.

Outside, each cottage has its own enclosed lawned garden with a fabulous hot tub and picnic bench on a paved terrace. Fire up the barbecue and gather the whole group in the garden for a feast as you share stories and enjoy your time together. There is space for the dogs, and children, to play safely and parking for four cars is available.

Points of Note
  • Book with us to get exclusive discounts to top attractions and experiences. 
  • Please make yourself aware of the hot tub rules and hours of use. Four guests maximum are permitted in each hot tub at one time.
  • Four well-behaved dogs are welcome for an additional fee but must be restricted to 2 dogs in each barn.
  • The Brambling is on a working farm, and at certain times of year there is more activity than others. In the summer (August/September) during harvesting, tractors and trailers will be coming backward and forwards filling the grain stores, which are situated close to the barns. This will not impact on your stay but is something to aware of.
