the barn and the  granary at macaroni

The Barn and The Granary at Macaroni are part of the Great Barns which were built in the 1700’s.

Macaroni Farm is a family run, organic farm situated in the heart of the Cotswolds, an area of outstanding natural beauty and on the edge of the Coln Valley, best known for its glorious views and stunning walks. Being situated in the heart of the farm land, guests can enjoy footpaths, bridleways, and bike rides, and can walk across fields to the historic village of Eastleach. We are very well situated to visit Lechlade, Fairford, Cirencester, Bibury and Burford amongst others.

The farm appears to date back to the late 1600’s, the farmhouse itself was built in 1732. A classic group of Cotswold buildings surrounding the farmhouse in the yard would have been used to house all sorts of different livestock and harvested cereal crops.

The Phillips family have farmed the land around Eastleach since 1891. The family decided to convert to organic farming practices in 1999 and have been certified by the Soil Association ever since. The farm produces organic beef and lamb, and cereals (oats and wheat for milling, and barley for malting).

The development at Macaroni Farm comprises of The Barn and The Granary. The Barn offers a space for private entertaining, conferences and classes, whilst the Granary offers comfortable two bedroom accomodation for short term or week long stays. We will always do our best to accommodate your requirements to offer a unique experience and make your time with us special.

A macaroni in mid-18th-century England was a fashionable fellow who dressed and even spoke in an outlandishly affected manner.

A man who “exceeded the ordinary bounds of fashion” in terms of clothes, fastidious eating, and gambling.

Dress codes included large powdered wigs with a little hat on top, indeed so high upon the head that it could only be removed by the tip of a sword.

Members of the ‘Macaroni Club’, regularly travelled to Cheltenham to see the races, whilst stopping en-route at Paul’s Castle to watch the Bibury meet. It has been suggested that the area around the racecourse was named in their honour in a bid to increase attendance amongst the wealthy elite; and to establish a reputation as the place to be seen.
