This charming cottage set in the peaceful and picturesque village of Charlbury provides a wonderful base for a family or group of friends looking to explore the local area.

Charlbury has four pubs, a delicatessen/cafe and a selection of other shops and services. The main-line station offers a regular service between London and Oxford to the east and Moreton-in-Marsh and Great Malvern to the west. A regular bus service runs to Woodstock, home of Blenheim Palace, one of the area’s top attractions, just 8 miles away. Visit Daylesford Organic or Diddley Squat Farm for some local produce or spend a day in the beautiful towns of Chipping Norton and Burford which are close by. A little further afield are Moreton in Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold (great for a spot of antique hunting), historic Bibury (with its famous Arlington Row and popular trout farm), Stratford-upon-Avon (home of the Royal Shakespeare Company), the picturesque towns of Bourton-on-the-Water and Broadway, and ample opportunities for shopping in Oxford, Bicester, Cirencester and Cheltenham.

Boasting character and charm, this cottage will appeal to families and groups looking to explore the town and surrounding areas of the Cotswolds. This lovely cottage has been newly renovated to a high standard and with careful attention to detail. The stylish interiors have been designed to mix classic neutral Cotswold tones with uplifting accents of colour and pattern. It benefits from a new gas central heating system with cast-iron-effect radiators and heated towel rails in all bathrooms. You can park in the allocated parking space at the front of the cottage if arriving by car, and easily unload your belongings, before heading four steps to the front door. When you enter, you arrive in the hallway where you can kick off your boots and head left into the sitting room. In this room, you can relax and unwind on the large and luxurious L-shaped corner sofa, cosy up in front of the wood burner and enjoy your favourite movie or TV show on the Smart TV. Head back through the property to the well-equipped bright, modern kitchen and comfortable dining area which offers everything the chef amongst you needs to prepare a hearty meal, with an electric oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher; if needed, there is a combi washing machine/tumble dryer for your use. Once you’re ready to serve up breakfast, lunch or dinner, the old oak dining table will comfortably seat eight guests and there is additional seating for four at the kitchen island. There is a stylish downstairs WC located off the hallway. Heading upstairs, you have three bedrooms all made up with 400-thread-count Egyptian cotton bedding and sumptuous locally sourced woollen blankets. All three rooms have built-in wardrobes. The master bedroom is spacious double (able to accommodate a cot) with an en-suite shower, basin and WC, and a walk-in wardrobe/storage for your cases. Bedroom two offers a further stylishly designed and comfortable double bedroom and bedroom three is a bespoke built-in double bunk room sleeping up to four people in individual self-contained sleeper-style bunks which can be curtained off for privacy or sleep. Bedrooms two and three share a beautiful marble family shower room with a walk-in shower, basin, heated towel rail and WC.

The back door of the kitchen provides access to the relaxing, quiet and secluded walled garden outside. The garden is laid to lawn and patio with two sets of table and chairs ensuring that you can always soak up the sun whilst you enjoy some drinks, a game of badminton or croquet or a snooze in the hammock. Under the apple trees is the perfect spot of al fresco dining whilst you exchange stories and plan tomorrow’s adventures.

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?
