Property code: CC016

This property is made up of dual cottages that can also be booked separately. Converted from former farm buildings, and located in the Cotswold countryside in the grounds of Clattercote Priory

Located on a farm in the grounds of the 12th century Clattercote Priory, surrounded by horse paddocks, it’s the very definition of rural idyll. The village of Clattercote is close by, which is at the centre of the historic-cultural triangle of Oxford, Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon (all within a 30-minute drive). For local shops and entertainment, Banbury is about six miles away too, and features an array of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as Spiceball Country Park and a leisure centre with indoor swimming pool. Other top visitor attractions in the area include Blenheim Palace, Warwick Castle, Sulgrave Manor, Heritage Motor Museum and more.

On arrival at the properties you will notice that both accommodations have similar open-plan layouts. The lounge areas have ample comfortable seating, each with a TV. In the first cottage, you will see that the original fireplace and huge chimney breast have been retained as well as the old bread oven. The kitchen areas are well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, a dishwasher, a washer/ dryer, and a microwave. Also on the ground floor of the first cottage there are two double bedrooms, and in the second just one double. In both cottages, there is a bathroom on the ground floor that contains a shower over bath and WC. Upstairs there is a double bed on the mezzanine overlooking the living area below too, please note the stairs are steep. There is also a fold up bed available for an eleventh visitor (please book ahead). There is no internal connection between the cottages.

Outside, there is a terrace and the large garden accessed from the house via French doors – ideal for the kids and dogs (please note, there are some friendly resident dogs). The garden area is enclosed from the farm but not from each cottage so this arrangement works well when the two cottages are booked together for a family gathering. Garden furniture and BBQs are provided too for evening cookouts, and guests are welcome to wander through the grounds – the owners ask that you take note that there is a pond near to the main house. There is off-road parking available.

Really enjoyed staying here for a weekend birthday celebration with friends - we took both cottages.. The outdoor space, including huge walled garden with patio, exceeded expectations.

From plenty of toilet rolls to dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid, dishcloths and tea towels and of course hand soap in all the bathrooms!

Fantastic weekend stay. The cottages had everything we needed for 9 adults, one baby and three dogs. The enclosed garden was perfect and the location was easy for local walks, pubs and Banbury centre. Highly recommend

We loved the very comfortable cottage and the dogs were delighted with the garden, thank you. A super location allowing us plenty of choice for days out. We benefitted from lovely October days, the villages and scenery so picturesque.

Smashing cottage with everything you need. Felt like Home from home. Very cosy. Lovely enclosed garden shared by the 2 cottages. Location was close to canal for lovely walks. But little else close by. Very peaceful except for the train line close by. Many farm dogs on site.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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?
