  • Two adjacent holiday cottages combined in an idyllic location within the grounds of 12th century Clattercote Priory
  • A peaceful rural retreat on a working farm, surrounded by paddocks and with lovely views
  • A wealth of footpaths to explore from the doorstep
Property code: CC016

This property is made up of dual cottages that can also be booked separately. Converted from former farm buildings, and located in the Cotswold countryside in the grounds of Clattercote Priory

Book one, or both, of these quaint cottages for a family break. Combining across five bedrooms to accommodate up to 11 humans, your wet-nosed wanderers are also included as this spacious escape welcomes up to four dogs. The whole family will love the rustic appeal of this getaway, set on a working farm with a large garden and views of pretty Cotswolds farmland.

Each property is thoughtfully arranged in similar open-plan layouts. The first cottage retains an original fireplace and huge chimney breast as well as an old bread oven, for historical charm. The kitchen areas are well-equipped and modern. The ground floor of the first cottage has two double bedrooms, and the second cottage one double. Both cottages have ground floor bathrooms for making any post-walk clean-ups a breeze. One cottage sports a quirky set of stairs up to a double bed on a mezzanine overlooking the living area below. Go out of the French doors to the terrace and large garden – ideal for the kids and dogs (who may get acquainted with the friendly resident dogs). The garden area is enclosed from the farm but there is a pond near the main house to keep in mind for any curious canines.

In the grounds of the 12th-century Clattercote Priory, surrounded by horse paddocks, the property is pure rural idyll. The village of Clattercote nearby is the centre of the historic-cultural triangle of Oxford, Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon – all within 30 miles. For local entertainment, Banbury is roughly 6 miles away and features an array of shops, pubs and restaurants. Spiceball Country Park will give four-footed family members yet more running space. We don’t want to hound you, but yet more family-friendly options are Blenheim Palace (24 miles away), famously Winston Churchill’s birthplace, the parkland surrounding which is beautiful, open and utterly dog friendly.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lose yourself in true rural Oxfordshire with this trip to the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Enjoy a tree-lined 2-mile walk to the nearest pub, where you can reward yourself with a pint of something local. Head 6 miles out to the local town of Banbury, not only your closest port of call for groceries and amenities but also offering some independent shops and eateries, as well as a museum offering fascinating narrow boat workshop tours. The town's local castle (11.5 miles) is, in fact, a remarkable manor house with beautiful gardens and a 3-acre moat, well worth a look. On a more outdoorsy day, find yourself just 5.5 miles from the brink of the Cotswolds AONB, which boasts some enjoyable scenery and walking routes. Enjoy the beautiful Upton House and Gardens in the heart of this rural location (9 miles). Find time to take a trip to Stratford-upon-Avon (22.5 miles), which is rich with Shakespearian history and things to see and do for visitors of all ages. A beautiful summer's day can be spent in the town's tropical butterfly farm (21.5 miles), before having a wander around Shakespeare's birthplace (22.5 miles).

Comfortable and nice location. Big lawned walled garden ideal for children. Couple of bedrooms in open loft location with space saver steps so may not suit everyone.

This was a great cottage set-up for two or more families of mixed ages, as ours were. Both cottages were well equipped and the beds were really comfortable. We couldn't fault the accommodation. It was good that the cottages were linked via external doors. We were impressed by the sound-proofing! It enabled us to mix and match families and ages realRead morely well. The kids (mostly teens, plus a 5 year old) had a wonderful time, enjoying both the country walks and the downtime in their 'own' cottage. Hide
