This cottage is an unusual example of estate workers' housing within a traditional estate. Still with many original features and standing in peaceful surroundings with fine vews over the Oxfordshire countryside from the cottage, it has a shared lawned garden and a more private sitting out area. For walkers there is access to the Thames Long Distance Route and numerous marked footpath walks nearby.

The Cotswolds, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire

These three counties are a chance to get closer to traditional English life, gentle rolling hedgerows alive with wildlife and wide open green spaces to relax in. Best bits include exploring the green chalk hills and woodlands of the Chilterns and discovering the history of Warwickshire, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.

If not the heart of England, the Cotswolds and the neighbouring county of Warwickshire, are surely its soul - an uplifting vision of breathtaking scenery, with gently rolling countryside of hills and valleys, picturesque stone villages and fine houses. This beautiful area offers the visitor a glimpse of traditional English life, and is attractive throughout the year. There is no better way to enjoy the splendours of the Cotswolds than to stay in one of the Trust?s many holiday homes .

    Cosy setting

    The welcome card, flowers, chocolates, Christmas pudding and logs. Comfortable settees, log fire, cosy setting and beautiful countryside. Good quality beds and bedding, good heating and hot water supply. Games available for use. We originally thought the lack of Internet access was a huge disadvantage ( had not noticed that it wasn't available on booking) but soon appreciated a time free from constant connection to the outer world!

    Made enjoyable...

    The house was in a good setting, secluded but near to places of interest. The house contained all the equipment necessary for our holiday including the highchair and cot we needed so we didn't have to pack one.

    Comfortable cottage

    Wonderful spring break! We booked this holiday as a birthday treat and were delighted by the beautiful location and general level of comfort that this cottage afforded. It has been very nicely furnished and the layout is very spacious and cosy - the beds are unbelievably comfortable! We wanted to explore this area, in particular Buscot House & Gardens and also nearby Chastleton House. We very much hope to return soon and walk to Great Coxwell Barn and also explore the Thames Path. Thank you to Debbie for preparing the cottage for our arrival with flowers and lots of biscuits to welcome us.
