This lovely, spacious two-bedroom cottage is found at the edge of Otmoor, and a few miles north of Oxford.

This inverted two-bedroom cottage provides a comfortable blend of classic and contemporary accommodation. Being close to Otmoor and the RSPB Nature Reserve this is a peaceful, popular place for nature enthusiasts. Bring the binoculars for some wonderful sightings of lapwings, wigeons, redshanks and other visiting birds, or take leisurely walks to nearby Islip , Beckley or Stanton St John for the local pubs, or walk into the village and take the children to the  newly installed play park or visit a local village stall and purchase some home grown produce.  Another great plus is that this rural location is close to Oxford, the M40 for London, Windsor or Birmingham; the Cotswolds are less than 30 minutes away, and it’s ideal for touring the wider area too.

We had a lovely stay at Manor Barn. The cottage had everything we needed and more. If we would have thought on we would have taken some games for out in the garden as it was big enough. The location was brilliant for Oxford and some surrounding tourist attractions such as Bleinheim Palace, Cotswolds Park and Zoo etc. The host was lovely, checking iRead moren with us when we arrived and leaving a lovely welcome gift. Overall it was a lovely place to stay. Hide

Being a senior Citizen I found the vacuum very heavy and cumbersome. A food. grater would have been helpful and a blind over the window above the television. I don't think we fully realised how.limiting the view was with velux windows. We will be more savvy next time. We did enjoy the days out.

Nice gift on arrival. Owner checked in on us by text to ensure all was ok, which was nice. Everything was just as advertised and great value.

Manor Barn is in the perfect location for visiting Oxford and the beautiful surrounding countryside of the Cotswolds. The local pubs/restaurants are mostly happy to have dogs. There is a lovely spacious living room/dining room and the master bedroom has a ginormous and very comfortable bed. The garden is private and securely fenced so it was perfecRead moret for the dog to roam around in safety (would also be good for kids!) Hide

We stayed here over Christmas and it was perfect for us. The cottage is really comfortable and we enjoyed spending time indoors. It was also a great place to come back to after walks in the surrounding countryside. We liked the peace and quiet but also found it easy to get to and from Oxford. We would love to stay here again.

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?
