Punch Barn is a light and spacious self catering holiday cottage which has been sensitively converted, retaining much of the character and charm of the original building. Arranged over 2 floors, the barn provides luxurious accommodation for 4 guests in 2 comfortable bedrooms. Part of the Goodlake Barns complex, there is a large communal courtyard and plenty of parking available on site. The market town of Faringdon is only 3 miles away which offers a range of amenities and there is a wide range of nearby places to visit including Blenheim Palace, Oxford, the Cotswolds and the iconic Uffington White Horse.
