Places To Visit 

Discover the joys of historic towns, honey- coloured villages, exquisite stately homes  and breathtaking countryside all a stone's throw from our barns

Located in the Golden Triangle

Did you know there is a ‘Golden Triangle’ where the joys of butterscotch coloured Cotswolds villages, historic Warwick and Shakespeare’s Stratford are all within arm’s reach of each other? At its heart is the beautiful village of Walton, located in a hamlet in the heart of a 16th Century privately owned estate where you will find Mount Pleasant Barns nestled away on top of the hill. It’s quintessentially English countryside at its very best, Walton truly is the location that just keeps on giving.

The Cotswolds


Charming villages, butterscotch-toned streets, sheep-nibbled hills and valleys  not to mention unique artisan shopping experiences and a plethora of hipster restaurants and eateries,  the Cotswolds is one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the UK. 

From Mount Pleasant Barns you can easily reach the towns and villages of Stow on the Wold, Chipping Campden, Moreton in the Marsh, Broadway, Chipping Norton and Bourton on the Water. There’s a phenomenal amount to do in the Cotswolds, but whether you come for some peace and quiet in the UK’s largest AONB, or an eating, drinking and boutique browsing extravaganza, you’re in for a treat.
