Valley Barn offers sleek and modern living whilst being ideally placed in the centre of the countryside. Newly converted in 2014 you will not be disappointed with all it has to offer. From state of the art entertainment systems, two stunning en—suite bedrooms and a large open plan living area and kitchen you could be mistaken for thinking you were in a 5* hotel.

The most breath taking part of this home is the uninterrupted views! Glass doors open across the full length of the front of the building looking over rolling valley hills as far as you can see this truly is an idyllic place to get away from it all.

If you feel like venturing out you will find a variety of things to do on your door step. Walking is exceptionally popular in the area due to the traditional looking villages and great local charm. While you’re out and about why not visit The Woolpack pub which is known locally as one of the best pubs in the Cotswolds and is famous for being frequented by Laurie Lee. Valley Barn is on the Laurie Lee Wildlife Way and a map is available within the property. Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust owns four beautiful nature reserves in the Slad Valley called Frith Wood, Snows Farm, Swifts Hill and, thanks to a very successful fundraising appeal, the new Laurie Lee Wood. The Laurie Lee Wildlife Way takes in all four Nature Reserves and the trail is marked by wooden posts carved with the famous authors poems. People come from all over Europe to see the beauty of these valleys.

If you fancy going a little further afield you will find Cheltenham with its regency charm, independent shops and cafes, and of course the famous racecourse just up the road as well as Stroud, Gloucester and the rest of the Cotswolds right on your doorstep.
