A beautiful barn conversion in picturesque Stonor Valley, 10 mins from Henley-on-Thames. The barn is surrounded by a 5 acre garden shared with our farmhouse and enjoys spectacular views. Use of tennis court & indoor pool.

The space
As you enter the barn through tall glass doors, you come into an open-plan sitting room, with double height ceiling and a comfortable seating area.

To the right and still part of this open plan room, is a dining table that seats up to 12 and a fully equipped kitchen with fridge, freezer, oven, hob and a dishwasher.

Also on the ground floor are two double bedrooms and a bathroom.

Upstairs, the barn is made up of two large mezzanine rooms accessed by two staircases flanking the fire place. To the right above the kitchen and dining area is a large family bedroom (described under Accommodation) and to the left on the mezzanine is a Games Room, with a full sized billiard table.

The fire place is a focal point of the open plan living room and is in good working order, logs will be provided although the barn is centrally heated.

There is no washing machine or tumble dryer but a laundry service can be provided at an additional cost by the owner.

Accommodation:
This property is advertised for 12, it is ideal for that number if shared between two families with children but for an adult group wanting their own space and privacy we would recommend it for a group of 6, two in each of the three rooms.

It can be scaled up further in terms of beds to a maximum of 14 on sofa beds (x2 singles) and truckles (single bed in Master with one truckle below) and doubles (x 5 across x 3 rooms) but this is not recommended for a comfortable stay. Please note there is only one bathroom!

The bathroom is spacious, with loo, sink, bath and separate wet-room shower.

The accommodation comprises:

x 1 double bedroom that sleeps 3 (1 double bed and a single bed, there is a truckle under this single bed so could work for two children)

x 1 double bedroom that sleeps 2 (1 double bed)

x 1 family bedroom / children's room - this is located on the mezzanine level and sleeps 7 (x 3 double beds and one single sofa bed). Please note that this is on a mezzanine and open to the living area below, it is perhaps a consideration for those with young children who are light sleepers and likely to be disturbed by light or noise from the main sitting room below.

A travel cot is also available for small infants.

In the Games Room there is a further single sofa bed if required.

Tennis Court:
This is right next door to the guest house and can be used by guests as they please.

Swimming Pool:
The indoor pool is attached to the farmhouse and must be accessed via the house, therefore it will be offered to guests between the hours of 8am and 7pm. Pool towels are provided.

Guest access
You will have exclusive access to the converted barn. This will be approached from a shared drive with the farmhouse. You will have full access to the 5 acre garden which is shared with the farmhouse.

Use of climbing frames and trampoline is welcome but totally at the risk of users and should be monitored by an adult. Parents of small children should be aware that there is a small shallow pond that is a good distance from the barn but is not covered.

Plenty of parking is available.

Other things to note
Bed linen, bath and pool towels will provided by a hire company and charged at cost, £55 to be left in cash in the provided envelope at depart regardless of group size.

No stag parties, or all male group celebrations, sorry guys! You are welcome on another occasions. We do not hire the grounds for weddings or larger scale events, although we have accommodated many brides, grooms and families before and after their big day.

Location

Oxfordshire, United Kingdom

The Stonor Valley is situated in the Chilterns just 10 minutes drive from Henley-on-Thames and is an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The village of Pishill, is charming, it has a local pub, The Crown Inn and a 12th century church. This is a dream location for walkers and cyclists. We provide a map to help you plan walking and cycling routes.

For those seeking a little culture, we are also just a mile away from neighbouring village, Stonor where the impressive country house, Stonor Park is situated amidst a stunning deer park. The house and garden are open to the public at restricted times, so check their website before planning your visit.

Whilst this is a rural area, there is no shortage of good places to eat from Michelin starred restaurants to honest local pubs, many within walking distance and all listed in the information booklet, a pdf of which can be sent to you prior to your stay.

If you are celebrating a special occasion, we have two 2-star Michelin restaurants in easy reach although early booking is essential.
- Raymond Blanch's 'Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons' in Great Milton is 20 minutes away

- Tom Kerridge's 'Hand and Flowers' in Marlow is 15 minutes away and his more casual dining tapas bar 'The Coach' is also in Marlow is great (they do not accept reservations and are very busy on Saturdays).

Otherwise, for more down to earth dining, there are so many wonderful pubs to choose from serving restaurant standard food to honest pub grub.

Henley-on-Thames and Marlow are both beautiful historic towns, boasting lovely walks along the banks of the Thames, good retail therapy with many boutique shops and a good selection of restaurants. Henley has a charming cinema, Regency theatre and the Water and Rowing Museum that alongside a history of rowing, tells the tale of Kenneth Grahame's 'Wind in the Willows' inspired by this stretch of the river.

Boat trips, boat and canoe hire are possible from both Marlow and Henley.

We moved to this stunning area 7 years ago from London and no regrets. We love the fact that the area is so rural yet we do not feel isolated with good shops and restaurants easily accessible to London and Oxford. My husband and I have a 13 year old daughter and 10 year son. Having left a demanding job in the art world in search of a better work/life balance, I have now set up on my own art consultancy called Hollandridge Group and work largely from home. Since lockdown my husband now works from home having commuted into London for years which is an added bonus. As a family, we love sporting and cultural pursuits, entertaining our friends and family, good food and wine. We look forward to meeting you!
