Claridges Barn is set among 3½ acres of family garden, wood and meadow hewn from a barley field on limestone brash.

Situated on top of the Cotswolds, it is open to all weathers, but there are rewarding views and dog walking opportunities on hand. The garden has a large vegetable, cutting and fruit garden together with a wildlife pond and six greenhouses, all loved by rabbits, deer and squirrel.

Entry fee: Adults: £5; Children (under 16 years): Free.
