This beautifully finished traditional stone cottage with its clever mix of both old and new is the perfect base to enjoy what the Cotswolds has to offer.

Situated at one of the highest points in Northamptonshire, there are far reaching views and plenty of scenic walks right on your doorstep. There is something for everyone to do: Bicester Village shopping outlet with its array of designer shops, and Silverstone race track, home of the British Grand Prix, are within a short distance by car. The traditionally English towns and villages of the Cotswolds are also nearby, including Chipping Norton, Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-the-Marsh. A little further afield is the university city of Oxford, with its historic buildings, architecture and museums.

Stepping into the cottage welcomes you into the bright and airy kitchen with everything you need for a relaxing stay, such as electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave and coffee machine. Nearby, the shower room offers an enclosed shower, WC, and washing machine should you need it. The lounge/diner is complimented with exposed beams and a stunning stone fireplace with a wood-burner nestled in the hearth, great for those chilly winter evenings. There is a spacious corner sofa which doubles up as a sofa bed should you need the extra space, and a nearby dining table for lazy breakfasts and planning the day’s activities ahead. Heading upstairs, the king-size bed is just waiting for you to enjoy a long lie-in amongst the beautiful furniture and sumptuous fabrics. Head on up the hidden staircase, which leads you to a stunning bathroom with freestanding bath, sink, WC, and dressing area with wooden floor boards and neutral tones throughout.

Outside there is a courtyard garden to the front with a seating area to enjoy a morning coffee or two. Pretty flower beds decorate the garden, which is enclosed with a picket fence. Parking is on the road outside the cottage.

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?
