The complex is found nestling by fields, a paddock and a couple of cottages dotted around as your neighbours, but it’s a largely secluded position. Cote is a small village close to Bampton for local pubs and shops or for main shopping area you have Witney, four miles away. The wonderful city of historical and academic Oxford is about 30 minutes' drive, Stratford-upon-Avon, for a thoroughly Shakespearean experience or Cheltenham, for horse racing, are accessible within an hour. Being a couple of hours to London or Birmingham with reasonable access to the motorway networks, this is a good central location for groups to meet.

 

Coming into the larger of the two properties you will encounter a large entrance hall. Going through you can enjoy the large lounge with ample comfortably seating and a TV/DVD. The large dining room can comfortably seat 8, - or 14 diners with some combining of furniture from the two cottages (the owner asks that everything is returned at the end of your stay). The spacious well-equipped kitchen comes complete with a dishwasher, microwave, double range oven and hob, two fridges and a freezer. There is also a separate utility room with Belling sink, washing machine and tumble dryer. In this part of the house there is a ground floor twin bedroom, with the option to add an additional third single bed if required, it also has a ensuite shower room with WC. Upstairs in this property you will find a further three bedrooms: one king-size  with an en-suite shower over the bath and WC, a further double bedroom and a bedroom containing twin beds. All bedrooms have TVs. Close by is a family bathroom for convenience with a shower over the bath and WC. In the smaller cottage, you enter through the kitchen, which comes equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, oven and hob, fridge, freezer and washing machine. There is an open-plan lounge/diner with ample seating and a TV/DVD. There is also a sofa bed for hire. Close by is a spacious double bedroom with a king-size bed, and a bathroom with a shower over bath and WC. Dogs are welcome in the larger property but not the smaller one.

A delightful cottage that was perfect for a family gathering and birthday celebration. It was very homely and plenty of space and bathrooms for everyone, was in easy reach of wildlife park and country surroundings. The owner was most helpful and provided everything we needed. Worth a visit and would recommend to others.

We had a great family long weekend here. Very good size property and good to have separate cottage as well but still enough room to all eat and socialise together in the main house. Great to have the enclosed patio area to be able to let the dog out. Lots of restrictions with dog though, so they need to be very obedient if you take one. Main bedrooRead morem bed not very comfortable but en suite very spacious as are all the rooms. It was great to have the houses decorated for Christmas, nice touch. Hide

In a tranquil setting, with lots of space, this is the perfect base for a Cotswold break. We were 3 families (4 generations). We had both properties. Lots of kitchen equipment, high chairs and cot as needed , plenty of seating inside and out. Would also suit a group of adults. Highly recommend. For anyone with children, the Cotwsold Wildlife Park iRead mores a must. Hide

For an annual get together of old school friends and partners, Orchard Barn proved to be a perfect place to stay. Clean and cosy, it has every angle covered and we all very quickly felt at home. Host Pippa was also extremely helpful and very responsive to our needs. We hope to return.

Just returned from a week in Orchard Barn and Thames View that was very enjoyable. Nine 'oldies' found it to be spacious and light with modern fittings, plenty of kitchen utensils and enough champagne glasses for all.! We enjoyed eating together in the big window area and there were enough outdoor chairs and cushions for when the sun shone. If you Read moreare going there we had an excellent Chinese takeaway from Mark's kitchen in Bampton. Hide
