Disabled Access

Both barns are single storey and built on one level throughout. Each has a wooden ramp, allowing easy disabled access to the property.

Depending on your needs, you might find Blackberry Barn  suits you better than Bramble Barn. The main difference is that Blackberry Barn has the space for wheelchair access to all facilities, including having a wet room with sufficient turning space to make it easy to get in and out. As you will see from the pages for the individual barns, we also have a range of equipment available to assist you during your stay – just let us know what would be useful and we’ll make sure it’s in place ready for your arrival.

We recommend you check out the pages for the individual barns, the photographs of the properties, and the testimonials, to help you decide which barn is best for you. And, of course, do not hesitate to ask for more information if you need it.

There are many accessible attractions in the Cotswold.

 

Blenheim Palace is one of the Treasure Houses of Britain and sits at the centre of English history. Planned as a gift to John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough by a grateful nation after the defeat of the French, it was also the birthplace of Winston Churchill.

Kelmscott Manor is an attractive 17thC stone built manor house in the upper Thames Valley on the edge of the Cotswolds. It was leased by William Morris and became his ‘heaven on earth’ and country retreat for the rest of his life. The internal decor is much as Morris left it with a collection of his furniture, possessions and displays of his textiles. There is also solid oak furniture and 17thC tapestries from the original owners of the manor. The house is surrounded by a small garden and outbuildings. There is a shop and very good tea room.

Chedworth Roman Villa was one of the largest Roman villas in Britain, just off the Fosse Way. It is a lovely setting in a sheltered position overlooking the River Coln. It has some of the best mosaics in the country still in situ as well as dining room, bathhouses, hypocausts, water shrine and latrines. The museum has artefacts found around the site.

Malmesbury Abbey is a splendid Norman building. It has had a chequered history as the central tower fell down in 1500 destroying much of the church. In 1500 part of the west tower fell down, demolishing part of the nave. Only the nave and side aisles survive, but they are well worth a journey to see. The carving round the south porch and doorway is some of the best in the county. The inside has the WOW factor even though it does end rather abruptly in a blank stone wall at the east end. It is Norman architecture at its best.
