Location Information

Ash Barn is located on the outskirts of picturesque Great Tew, an unspoilt village benefitting from a popular local country pub, The Falkland Arms. There are many footpaths throughout the local area, one of our favourites being the Little Tew circular walk which conveniently passes renowned cafe Quince and Clover- the perfect mid-walk pit stop!

The area is also spoilt for choice with an array of well-known eateries including The Royal Oak at Ramsden, The Wild Rabbit at Kingham and the Boxing Hare at Swerford. All of these destination country gastropubs and inns are situated just a short drive from the barns. If you are looking to celebrate a special occasion, or just treat your party, then we recommend using the Cotswold Guy, a private chef who can cook up a storm in the barn's kitchen whilst you relax.

For your shopping essentials, there is a Marks and Spencers Foodhall, Co-op and Sainbsurys superstore in Chipping Norton. Also, in the nearby town of Deddington is Eagles Fine Foods, an independent deli and butchers.
Great Tew sits in the heart of the North Cotswolds and is perfectly placed for visiting the much-loved towns of Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Norton and Oxford. Also within a short drive are the renowned Soho Farmhouse, Daylesford Organic and Diddly Squat farm shop.
