This quirky and quaint cottage is situated a few miles from Charlbury, deep in the Cotswolds. The accommodation is perfect for family breaks.

Full of character and original features, blended with modern holidaying needs, this cottage will be a hit with families looking to relax and enjoy a slice of Cotswold country life. In its rural location, it’s still within easy reach of the market town of Charlbury. The town has four good pubs and a selection of interesting shops. The main line station offers a regular service between Oxford and London, or between Malvern and Worcester. A regular bus services runs to Woodstock, and you could also visit Blenheim Palace, one of the area’s top attractions.

On arrival at the holiday accommodation, you will find the entrance hall with a utility area. Close by is the lounge; this spacious communal area has ample comfortable seating, a TV/DVD, iPod dock, and a hi-fi. Central to the space is a wood burner that comes with a basket of logs. The kitchen/dining room comes equipped with an electric oven and hob, a washing machine, a tumble dryer, a dishwasher, and a fridge/freezer. Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom with a zip-and-link bed (which can be made up as a twin by arrangement in advance). It has an en-suite shower room with WC too. On the first floor, down a narrow hallway and ducking through a doorway, is the other double bedroom which has a sloping period beamed ceiling which gives the bedroom old world charm and character. There is a bathroom with WC close by for convenience.

Through the French doors that lead outside, there is a pretty cottage garden with a patio and a BBQ which is fully enclosed and dog friendly. There is parking for two cars to the side of the cottage (there are a few steps with a hand rail leading down into the garden).

This cottage is a wonderful cosy, comfortable hide away. Every thing is provided. Wendy the owner caters for your every need. Home made cake, lovely breakfast and cereals, milk, bread etc provided so you don't even need to worry about that first shop when you've just arrived, fresh flowers, Wendy is so thoughtful.

The cottage was beautiful, it was warm and comfortable. The welcome pack was amazing. Wendy had taken a lot trouble to make sure everything was just right for our stay. I have two dogs and it was important to me that the garden was safe and enclosed which it was. My sister and I will definitely be going back . For us it was perfect.

Extremely well equipped and very comfortable cottage. Ideal for walking - we used our car only once during the week. The centre of the small town of Charlbury is a 5 minute walk away and has everything you need including shops, great pubs and take-away food vans. Wendy the owner couldn't have been more helpful.

Exceptional welcome pack including a freshly baked delicious cake, fresh flowers and even treats for our dogs.

Wendy makes you very welcome and the little extras she supplies are a first for any property i have rented. You have everything to start you off like a lovely cooked breakfast if required. The village is lovely and the pubs are nice although a little pricey for drinks and meals, but there is a takeaway fish and chips van, one day a week and also ThRead moreai food another day, although best to order that one as they get very busy,Its a lovely place to get to popular places, also a lovely walk for dogs.

No, would not recommend anyone stay upstairs.

Wendy made us feel right at home, she welcomed us with a wonderful hamper of goodies and a delicious homemade cake. The cottage is lovely and with plenty of space in the downstairs area. The upstairs bed was spacious and very comfortable but the bedroom and the hallway leading up to the bedroom, is narrow due to it being in the converted loft spaceRead more. That said, you do get used to it. The garden area is lovely and a wonderful place to relax and unwind. I would definitely stay here again. Hide

A lovely, welcoming cottage in a great location. Took a while to find the best walks for my dog, but once I'd found the wooded area we were sorted...literally round the corner, at the end of Ditchley Road. The cottage was perfect for my elderly mother and me. She took the downstairs room whilst I headed upstairs. A bit quirky, but fine for a petiteRead more person like myself. The garden was lovely, just the right size, and not too manicured- great for a nosey Labrador to sniff around. Thoughtful owner. Hide

Can't really fault this property.

Lovely quiet & ideal for dog walking with bridal path outside the door. Charlbury is a lovely village and great for getting out & about in the Cotswolds. Kitchen equipment provides all utensils etc for cooking. Upstairs could be awkward for tall guests.
