Kitchen & reception areas:

Originally consisting of three separate structures, this holiday cottage in Warwickshire now showcases a U-shaped design with three distinct wings. The connecting wing houses an impressive open-plan dining room and kitchen, occupying a substantial portion of the space. The centerpiece of the dining area is a remarkable table that can accommodate up to 18 people. The kitchen itself harmoniously blends historical elements with modern comforts. The presence of a delightful aga stove adds character, while the deep red cupboards infuse the space with a unique and memorable ambiance. As for catering, you have the option to either self-cater or hire the services of Olive Barn’s private chef. Adjacent to the kitchen and dining area, a charming sitting room provides a perfect spot to relax and unwind after a sumptuous meal.

But that’s not all—explore the left wing of the cottage, and you’ll discover an additional communal space. In the past, this area served as a drawing room, designed to accommodate a multigenerational family. However, it has now been transformed into an entertaining games room, complete with a dart board, pool table, and a large TV. This addition creates a fantastic space for hosting gatherings and fosters a sense of connection among guests through friendly competition.


Olive Barn boasts an impressive total of 6 bedrooms, providing comfortable accommodation for up to 18 guests. What sets this remarkable lodging apart is the unique journey it undertook to become the magnificent space it is today. Rather than undergoing a single renovation, its transformation took place gradually over 15 years of cherished family life. As a result, each bedroom and living area bears a personal touch and has been lovingly crafted to accommodate a large family.

One standout feature worth mentioning is the balcony attached to the master bedroom, located in the first wing of the house. From this vantage point, guests can enjoy breathtaking views of the championship Whitfields golf club. With the fairway just steps away, one can easily lose themselves in the captivating sight of avid golfers in action. The second wing of the house offers complete privacy and uninterrupted vistas of the stunning Warwickshire countryside.

The bedrooms provide a delightful degree of privacy, with some situated farther away from the bustling areas than others. 

The fact that the property has been renovated over such an extended period to cater to the needs of its previous family inhabitants gives it a touch of magic, making it an ideal setting for family reunions and multi-generational groups. More than just a renovated house, Olive Barn is a home infused with love and soul, evident in the finest of details. Even those who struggle to sleep in unfamiliar environments will find no difficulty in finding restful slumber within the embrace of this incredible family residence.
