Nestled between three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Cotswolds, the North Wessex Downs and the Chiltern Hills, these two luxury spacious barn conversions are in the heart of South Oxfordshire in The Vale of White Horse, set on a working sheep farm. These semi-detached barns, located adjacent to the owners’ home, have been very well designed, offering spacious rooms and comfortable surroundings set in the picturesque countryside. Each barn has their own outside area and also boasts an atrium off one of the bedrooms and the kitchen area. The furniture, fixtures and fittings are all high specification and they have been beautifully decorated.There is so much to see in this beautiful area including many countryside walks, there are links to The Ridgeway which is an ancient 87 mile track, directly from the farm. Visit White Horse Hill which is believed to be over 3000 years old (late Bronze age), The Courthill Centre, Uffington Castle, the Lord Wantage Monument and Waylands Smithy. The market town of Wantage, which is known as King Alfred’s birthplace, is 2½ miles away and you will find many shops, pubs and restaurant, or during the summer you will be able to enjoy music in the marketplace.
