This duo of thoughtfully designed holiday cottages is the ideal solution for accommodating family groups up to 14. It is also set in a lovely rural location.

The complex is found nestling by fields, a paddock and a couple of cottages dotted around as your neighbours, but it’s a largely secluded position. Cote is a small village close to Bampton for local pubs and shops or for main shopping area you have Witney, four miles away. The wonderful city of historical and academic Oxford is about 30 minutes' drive, Stratford-upon-Avon, for a thoroughly Shakespearean experience or Cheltenham, for horse racing, are accessible within an hour. Being a couple of hours to London or Birmingham with reasonable access to the motorway networks, this is a good central location for groups to meet.

 

Coming into the larger of the two properties you will encounter a large entrance hall. Going through you can enjoy the large lounge with ample comfortably seating and a TV/DVD. The large dining room can comfortably seat 8, - or 14 diners with some combining of furniture from the two cottages (the owner asks that everything is returned at the end of your stay). The spacious well-equipped kitchen comes complete with a dishwasher, microwave, double range oven and hob, two fridges and a freezer. There is also a separate utility room with Belling sink, washing machine and tumble dryer. In this part of the house there is a ground floor twin bedroom, with the option to add an additional third single bed if required, it also has a ensuite shower room with WC. Upstairs in this property you will find a further three bedrooms: one king-size  with an en-suite shower over the bath and WC, a further double bedroom and a bedroom containing twin beds. All bedrooms have TVs. Close by is a family bathroom for convenience with a shower over the bath and WC. In the smaller cottage, you enter through the kitchen, which comes equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, oven and hob, fridge, freezer and washing machine. There is an open-plan lounge/diner with ample seating and a TV/DVD. There is also a sofa bed for hire. Close by is a spacious double bedroom with a king-size bed, and a bathroom with a shower over bath and WC. Dogs are welcome in the larger property but not the smaller one.

Amazing place! The welcome pack was most generous. Everything about the venue was of a very high standard. The bathrooms were exceptional, the living area most comfortable for all 10 of us to spread out and the patio area a most welcome addition.

We hired both Orchard Barn and Thames View to celebrate a significant family birthday and Christmas. There were 10 of us at our largest and having both properties was perfect as it gave everyone enough space to relax. The properties have everything you need, even to create a full on Christmas dinner! Location wise the village itself is super cute aRead morend in a short car ride you can really explore. Christine was so welcoming and helpful and just made everything straightforward and stress free. Hide

We had a fantastic 7 day stay at Orchard Barn and Thames View. 10 of us found the 2 cottages spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped so that we could eat together and socialise inside and outside. The welcome pack was a nice touch and the owners even turned up with fans for us due to the hot weather. Would definitely recommend stayiRead moreng in these beautiful cottages and hope we get the opportunity to return soon. Thank you. Hide

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?
