Located in the quintessentially English village of Blewbury on the North Wessex Downs is The Studio. This self-contained timber-framed barn was featured in Period Living magazine and short-listed in the prestigious Wood Awards, and was built with ECO credentials, making it the perfect romantic country escape for up to two guests.
Inside, those staying will discover a spacious open plan living area flooded with light. There is a comfy sofa and armchairs, dining table and chairs for two, and an impressive grand Boston Steinway piano. The well equipped kitchenette space has a fridge/freezer and a microwave/grill for making lighter meals. Guests will also be greeted by a welcome hamper on arrival, filled with goodies including a small bottle of prosecco.
There is also a shower room on the ground level, while a ladder leads up to the mezzanine with its king size futon made of sustainable hardwood. In fact, the entire property has been designed and decorated with a nod to being environmentally-friendly, with much of the furniture made from upcycled materials and handmade on site. As well as the piano, there is also beautiful artwork and an array of CDs and books to provide entertainment.
Directly outside the main door is a small table and chairs for alfresco dining, a morning coffee, or an evening drink - accompanied by a small fire pit to keep cosy and warm as the night draws in. Those staying are also welcome to stroll around the on-site organic vegetable garden, or wile away the hours in a vintage deckchair by the pond.
Blewbury itself is idyllic with its thatched cottages, village greens, and ancient Norman church of St Michaels. There are also two pubs both serving excellent food and a selection of locally produced ales and wines. With easy access to the North Wessex Downs there are plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling, and even horse riding as well. One particularly fine walk is from Blewbury to Aldworth - home of the historic Bell Inn.
Despite its seemingly remote location, The Studio is actually only 40 minutes from London by train, while Oxford and Henley-on-Thames are both within easy reach too. The Rivers Thames itself also offers up the chance of fishing, boating, and wild swimming.
There is no plumbed kitchen sink. A wash tub is provided for dishes OR we will do your washing up for you OR you can wander to the village cafe for a Full English!
