Cats Abbey Barn is the perfect gathering place for groups of up to 36. It was designed and built for exactly that purpose. Half way between Oxford and Cheltenham, in the centre of the Cotswolds, it is easy to reach from anywhere in UK. Recent alterations to the site now mean we can provide additional accommodation by way of 5 "en suite" bedrooms located next to the Barn and a separate 2 bedroomed self contained cottage. As a result we could sleep up to 36.
In the Barn there are 11 beautiful bedrooms; 9 have en-suite wet-room showers and 2 inter-connecting rooms have an adjoining showerroom.
So Bedroom accommodation is for 22.
The huge living space, with a heated flagstone floor, wood burning stove, gallery and beams, is probably the best barn conversion for miles around. The dining space can seat up to 30, and the kitchen has everything you would ever want; it's a cooks delight.
If self-catering for 20 or more is not your idea of a break, then we have a list of country cooks and chefs who will come and look after you.
Weekday bookings are normally taken up by businesses and these can be tailored to their requirements. Most of our family bookings are for weekends, Friday afternoon to Monday morning 10am.
On the National Trust Sherborne Estate, 5 miles west of Burford, with spectacular views across the Windrush Valley, the location is perfect for a family get-together, or intimate and inspiring business meetings.
If you are looking for somewhere for the family to get together for birthdays, anniversaries, wedding receptions, or just a family holiday, then Cats Abbey is the perfect place.
