In terms of cleaning and maintenance, the properties within our portfolio are managed by a third party property manager or the property owner – your pre-arrival email will contain confirmation and contact details for the person managing your property. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.

All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.

Location Information

The Grinding Barn is located in the picturesque village of Little Coxwell, in the Vale of the White Horse. This unspoilt village is surrounded by breath-taking countryside, and is home to a popular country pub, The Eagle Tavern. The pub boasts a fantastic seasonal menu and prides itself on its use of locally sourced ingredients.
Surrounded by the wonderful countryside of the Vale of the White Horse, there are many walks nearby including The Ridgeway National Trail which rewards walkers with breathtaking views and passes close to the famous chalk white horse itself.
The Oxford Reds, a local supplier of home-reared, dry-aged, prime beef, is perfect if having a special home-cooked meal. The flavour is amazing and because the meat is hung for 28 days it’s very tender. They sell various cuts and mince online or buy direct from the beef freezer at Gorse Farm Goodies just next door. Please note that prime cuts will need to be booked early via their website.
For your shopping essentials, there are supermarkets in both Faringdon and Swindon, however the neighbouring farm (Goose Farm Goodies) sells honey and eggs, and re-usable glass bottles are provided for the vending machine which serves fresh milk and milkshakes.
Little Coxwell is well-placed for visiting the city of Oxford, as well as the much-loved Cotswold towns and villages of Cirencester, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Bibury.
