This charming 18th century Cotswold stone cottage with two bedrooms is situated in the unspoilt village of Kingham.

Found close to the centre of Kingham, it’s in prime position to be able to make the most of the village’s gastro pub and a well-stocked local shop. The village is also on the mainline for London, Oxford and Worcester making it ideally situated for touring a larger area. By contrast, there’s so much beautiful countryside in the Cotswolds, famous for its lush green hills and farm land. Kingham is a great base for discovering the area, with Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace, Oxford or Cheltenham all within a leisurely drive. Local restaurants and pubs in the market towns of Stow-on-the-Wold and Chipping Norton are just a few miles away.

On arrival at the property the welcoming lounge is full of comfortable seating, tasteful furniture and a TV/DVD with Freeview. The separate dining room/conservatory has a large table with seating for six guests with double doors opening out onto the patio, making it the ideal social space for larger groups to enjoy a home-cooked meal together. The kitchen comes well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, a microwave, a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, and a washer/dryer. On the first floor, there are two bedrooms, the first of which has a double bed with ample storage and an en suite shower room with WC. The second bedroom is a twin. Nearby is a spacious bathroom with a shower over bath and WC.

Outside is a sheltered, private patio garden which is can be a good sun trap in the right conditions with garden furniture. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. There is a shared passageway with direct access to the lane outside with ample parking.

A thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing holiday in this excellent cottage. Spotlessly clean, fully modernised but still contained that traditional country cottage appeal, complete with log fire. The Wild Rabbit bistro pub was only a short walk away, very handy for light refreshment in the evening. Would strongly recommend this cottage.

Very comfortable cottage in a picture postcard village. Very peaceful area with a good local pub (and restaurant). We found lots of places to visit within a short drive so ideally situated.

Location

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?
