Rosebank Barn is set in rolling countryside on the edge of the enchanting village of Ablington. The village is located on the River Coln and the popular tourist destination of Bibury once described by William Morris as 'the most beautiful village in the Cotswolds', is a pleasant one mile walk away.

This converted natural Cotswold stone barn lies on the edge of a quiet village within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The South facing kitchen/breakfast room is bright and airy with oak beams, and twin large bi-fold doors providing easy access to the patio and walled garden; the open plan living and dining rooms have full height dual aspect. Completing this beautiful barn are two bedrooms, one double with en-suite and one twin, connected via a galleried landing with glass balustrades and views to the open plan ground floor.

Rosebank Barn is set in rolling countryside on the edge of the enchanting village of Ablington. Ablington has a fine 16th century manor house and was once the home of J Arthur Gibbs; the renowned author of 'A Cotswold Village'. Rosebank Barn is an ideal base for exploring Cotswold villages and towns, on foot, by bike or in the car. Located a short drive from Fairford, Cirencester, Bourton-on-the-Water and Cheltenham Spa and with easy access to the M4 and M5 motorways and trains via Kemble station. The barn is close to a number of noted wool churches, with Northleach, Cirencester, Fairford, Tetbury and Stow-on-the-Wold all worth visiting.
