The Dutchy

Weston Subedge

Family Friendly
Dog Friendly
Local Pub
The Dutchy comprises two spacious barn conversions - Ledge View and Hill View Rise, which stand adjacent to each other in the most glorious setting. Accommodating up to 14 guests in seven bedrooms, this is a beautiful location for gathering your loved ones together or celebrating stylish hen parties. With an abundance of open-plan living space, this is a place where you can enjoy a range of experiences without leaving the comfort of The Duchy, from mobile beauty and spa treatments to exclusive wine tastings, the options are endless. The barns are surrounded by wonderful walks, including the Cotswold Way and there are some excellent places to dine in nearby Chipping Campden.
Full Description
Sitting off a quiet country lane, The Dutchy is surrounded by beautiful countryside and magical views over the Vale of Evesham. Beyond the woodland, on the other side of the land lies Dover’s Hill which forms part of the renowned Cotswold Way trail. The nearest pub is just a mile down the hill, whilst the beautiful ancient wool town of Chipping Campden is a five-minute drive.

This sympathetically restored pair of barns offer the opportunity to stay in a delightfully rural setting, yet with everything you need close to hand. Ledge View is a three-bedroom barn, transformed from its former life as a Nissen Hut, whilst Hill View Rise is a four-bedroom, reverse-living Dutch Barn. Both feature well-equipped kitchens, and spacious living areas to relax and unwind.

The Dutchy sits in a large garden with space to really enjoy the open air. Organise garden games, lawn picnics or simply relax in the sunshine, listening to the birds. The sunsets from here are pretty memorable too. Dogs are welcome and there is parking for eight cars.

The space at both properties worked really well for a family get-together to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. The rooms were large and the kitchen provided everything we needed over the weekend. Nice countryside views from the upstairs rooms and lots of outside space where the children could play safely. It's well located, just a 35-minute walk to Chipping Campden where there is lots of pubs and shops and we also visited Cotswold Farm Park which was about a 15-minute drive away. We would definitely return.

The Dutchy is in a rural setting, approximately one mile from the centre of the peaceful village of Weston Subedge, itself a five-minute drive to the popular Cotswold towns of Chipping Campden and Broadway. Located on the northern edge of the Cotswolds, The Dutchy is set within prime walking country - it’s just a short walk to the Cotswold Way at Dover’s Hill - home to the Cotswold Olympicks - and has an outstanding view of the Malvern Hills in the near distance.
