This property is a converted former farm building, located in the Cotswold countryside in the grounds of Clattercote Priory. It’s the perfect base for a couples’ break or a getaway for a young family.

Located on a farm in the grounds of the 12th century Clattercote Priory and surrounded by horse paddocks, it’s the very definition of a Cotswold hideaway. Close to the village of Clattercote, the property is at the centre of the historic-cultural axis of Oxford, Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon. Banbury is about six miles away, and is a good place for shopping thanks to the Castle Quay Shopping Centre and night entertainment. Other top visitor attractions in the area include Warwick Castle, Sulgrave Manor, Heritage Motor Museum, the Malvern Hills and Blenheim Palace. There are plenty of footpaths in the vicinity, so it’s a great place for walkers to stay for a short break too.

On arrival at the cottage you will notice that it embraces an open-plan layout. The lounge area has ample comfortable seating, with a TV. You may be impressed to see that the original fireplace and huge chimney breast has been retained as well as the old bread oven. The kitchen area is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge with ice box, a dishwasher, a washer/ dryer, and a microwave. Also on the ground floor there is a comfortable double bedroom. Close by, there is a bathroom that contains a shower over bath and WC. Upstairs there is a double bed on the mezzanine floor overlooking the living area below, please note that the stairs are steep. There is also a fold up bed available for an extra visitor (please book ahead). There is no internal connection between the cottages.

Outside, there is a terrace and the pleasant garden space accessed from the house via French doors. The garden and farm is great place for outgoing children, as they can explore the grounds and play with the farmer’s friendly dogs. The garden area is enclosed from the farm and contains outdoor furniture, and BBQs are provided too for evening cookouts. Guests are welcome to wander throughout the grounds – the owners ask that you take note that there is a pond near to the main house.

The cottage is very nice and well appointed with a huge enclosed garden great for dogs! However what you dont know until you arrive is that it is very close to a railway line with trains running from shortly after 6am and due to an unregulated crossing they sound a loud warning noise-if youre a light sleeper this is a little frustrating. Lots of grRead moreeat walks nearby-particularly like the canal path. Pillows were very flat and need replacing. Main bedroom needs blackout curtains Hide

The cottage and equipment were good. The stairs up to the second bedroom could be an issue. They were very steep and the bathroom was through the door in the bedroom. Could disturb the people sleeping in that room. We had a problem with the patio door which the owners sorted immmediately and were very apologetic.

Lovely location and cottage was very comfortable. We found the through door to the bathroom from a privacy point of view difficult.

We found this super little barn, easily from the directions given by the owner. Lovely position in the Oxfordshire countryside and only about 20 Minutes drive to Banbury. Ample private parking. Cosy, but not small, the living/kitchen area has everything we could need and felt like home, from home! Very comfortable large bed and ample drawer space fRead moreor clothes, although hanging space rather small for 2 people. We enjoyed our short stay and wiould certainly book again. Hide

The Cotswolds is home to some of the most unspoilt, historic and famous villages in England. Its honey-coloured stone buildings provide a quintessential English charm found no-where else in the world and offer a plethora of welcoming pubs, tiny tearooms and quaint streets to explore.

Once described by William Morris as ‘the most beautiful village in England’, the chocolate box village of Bibury is one of England’s most iconic hamlets, home to the peaceful River Coln and some of the most photographed houses in the country. The famous Arlington Row is a sight to behold - this row of 14th century weaver’s cottages have been the foundation of Bibury for hundreds of years and is instantly recognisable as a symbol of the Cotswold District.

If you’re seeking a relaxing day of sightseeing, shopping and traditional tearooms, head to the charming town of Cirencester, once the second largest town in Roman Britain. Proclaiming the title "The Capital of the Cotswolds", its market square is dominated by the cathedral-like Parish Church of St. John Baptist (one of the largest in England) and can be easily reached from our self-catering accommodation in Bibury, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold.

The rolling Cotswolds countryside is never too far away from your cosy holiday cottage, so you can enjoy a variety of outdoor leisure pursuits including those at The Cotswold Waterpark. This popular tourist destination in Gloucestershire is home to 150 glorious lakes where angling, archery, wakeboarding, windsurfing, birdwatching and even rally driving can be experienced. On a balmy summers day, the Cotswold Country Park and Beach is the place to go, boasting the largest inland beach in the UK.

When it comes to attractions in the Cotswolds, visitors will be spoilt for choice. Grab a stylish bargain at Bicester shopping village, talk a walk on the wild side at Longleat Safari Park, experience a day at the races in Cheltenham, admire colourful blooms at Westonbirt Arboretum, keep the kids entertained at the Cotswolds Farm Park, take a tour around Gloucester Cathedral, and enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea at Blenheim Palace. That’s just for starters, there’s plenty more things to see and do in the Cotswolds and you will love them all! Our holiday homes in the Cotswolds are the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploration, why not have a browse?
