The Byre at Quercus Bluff is a unique holiday cottage, created by its craftsman owner to provide a peaceful rustic retreat in the heart of the unspoilt South Cotswolds countryside.
It has been imaginatively converted using locally sourced materials, including felled oak from the farm's woodland [for the doors, window frames and roof timbers] and reclaimed flagstones for the floor.
In the lower meadow there's a wonderful picnic and camping area, complete with hand-crafted wooden furniture. Free-range eggs and home-grown vegetables are available according to the season.
A popular farmers' market takes place in Stroud [three miles] every Saturday. Footpaths and bridleways, including The Cotswold Way, pass close by the farm.
Featured in "Grand Designs" magazine and other publications.
Wonderful far-reaching views.

The Byre is situated close to the northern (Cheltenham) outskirts of Painswick. Approaching Painswick on the A46 from the Cheltenham direction pass the golf club on the right then turn left to The Park (signed) and bear left again and follow the road downhill to the end - the final section of the lane is unsurfaced and steep.
