This quirky and quaint cottage is situated a few miles from Charlbury, deep in the Cotswolds. The accommodation is perfect for family breaks.

Full of character and original features, blended with modern holidaying needs, this cottage will be a hit with families looking to relax and enjoy a slice of Cotswold country life. In its rural location, it’s still within easy reach of the market town of Charlbury. The town has four good pubs and a selection of interesting shops. The main line station offers a regular service between Oxford and London, or between Malvern and Worcester. A regular bus services runs to Woodstock, and you could also visit Blenheim Palace, one of the area’s top attractions. Charlbury is close to the beautiful towns of Burford and Chipping Norton, and a little further afield are Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton in Marsh, Bourton-on-the-Water, Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham.

On arrival at the holiday accommodation, you will find the entrance hall with a utility area. Close by is the lounge; this spacious communal area has ample comfortable seating, a TV/DVD, iPod dock, and a hi-fi. Central to the space is a wood burner that comes with a basket of logs. The kitchen/dining room comes equipped with an electric oven and hob, a washing machine, a tumble dryer, a dishwasher, and a fridge/freezer. Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom with a zip-and-link bed (which can be made up as a twin by arrangement in advance). It has an en-suite shower room with WC too. On the first floor, down a narrow hallway and ducking through a doorway, is the other double bedroom which has a sloping period beamed ceiling which gives the bedroom old world charm and character. There is a bathroom with WC close by for convenience.

Through the French doors that lead outside, there is a pretty cottage garden with a patio and a BBQ which is fully enclosed and dog friendly. There is parking for two cars to the side of the cottage (there are a few steps with a hand rail leading down to the front door).

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?
