A Converted Barn in Churchill, Cotswolds

What a gorgeous place to wake up to!
We stayed at the most picturesque converted barn in Churchill village, in the Cotwolds.

The barn comes with a lovely front garden overlooking the wild Oxfordshire rolling hills.
First thing I did on Saturday morning was to make myself a cup of hot coffee, wrap up in a warm shawl, put my Uggs on and go sit outside in my jammies to soak in the morning sun.
Peace and quiet, while everyone else was still sleeping.  Morning light and hot coffee. What a feeling!
Four of us descended upon Churchill on a grey autumn Friday evening for my foodie birthday weekend. We couldn't have picked a better place. The barn is big enough for four adults, comfortably arranged with two bedrooms, one on each side of the building, for privacy.   
The living room is open plan with windows running along the whole length of the house to allow for uninterrupted views over the garden and the countryside. Even my husband, who hadn't used AirBnB before, was convinced; he's been asking to go back ever since!

In the kitchen you'll find everything you need to make yourself breakfast and even cook a light lunch or dinner. Remember to bring the food though!
Outside there is a small coal barbeque, perfect for relaxing evenings by the fire, under the stars.

Early wake up call, my favourite part of the whole trip.

Wandering around Churchill...
Sunset over the Cotswolds' hills. I took the same picture over and over throughout the day, the light made everything so different!

Churchill is one of the smallest villages around the Cotswolds, the one pub - one church, kinda place. This is exactly why you come here for. To give your mind a rest.

On Friday evening, when we arrived hot and bothered from London, we headed straight to the Chequers pub, which is walking distance from the barn. I loved the smell of burned wood on the way to the pub. To me it signifies that autumn is here and Christmas isn't far either.

Sunday morning views from our bedroom...and sigh.

Goodbye lovely weekend pad!
