A modern single-storey barn made up of two self-contained flats, this rural retreat is perfect if you're heading to this part of the world on a walking holiday. The interconnecting door will be open when you arrive, so it'll feel more like a single home with two living spaces. And although the building itself may be out in the sticks, there's nothing rustic about it. Two contemporary kitchens, two bright living rooms and three comfortable, en-suite bedrooms make this is a great choice if roughing it just isn't your thing. White walls and wood floors are accented with soft rugs and modern art inside, while the outdoor space overlooks the paddocks of neighbouring horses and the pristine countryside beyond. Spend your days hiking in the Chiltern Hills or head for a day out at delightful Henley-on-Thames.
