This beautifully finished traditional stone cottage with its clever mix of both old and new is the perfect base to enjoy what the Cotswolds has to offer.

Picture a holiday in a Grade II-listed traditional stone cottage, where you, your favourite humans and your treasured pet can relax together after a long walk in the delightful Cotswolds. This charming holiday home is built in honey-coloured stone and provides a quaint setting for a holiday, winding down, enjoying meals together and sleeping soundly. The cottage sleeps up to four people plus one four-pawed companion.

The lounge features attractive ceiling beams and exposed brickwork that contribute to its quaint, homely feel. There are comfy sofas to sink into – here you can spend an evening or two catching up on your favourite Netflix series while your cherished pet snoozes peacefully at your feet. The house shares a courtyard and gardens with a neighbouring pub which welcomes dogs, as long as they’re kept on a lead. In this walled area, you can enjoy meals outside while Bella cheerfully begs for scraps.

The busy market town of Banbury is 3 miles away where you can pop into cafés and look for souvenirs to take to friends back home. The hills of the Cotswolds, which start just 8 miles away, are ideal for long or short walks which your fluffy companion will adore. Take Fido’s favourite ball along to keep him amused, or let him find a stick for the day. For an urban day out, the city of Oxford is 23 miles away. Here you can admire one of the world’s most famous universities and go punting with your pooch. If he needs to stretch his legs, take him for a stroll in Shotover Country Park or Port Meadow, a Site of Special Scientific Interest that borders the River Thames.

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

Fantastic place to come. Been restored really well. Well equipped kitchen with welcome gifts to help you throughout your stay. Fresh flowers are a nice touch. Great location.

The Elephant Cottage is a lovely place to say. It is conveniently located, with offisde parking and a quaint pub next door. The cottage itself is beautiful, very modern and has a real homely feel.

Reviewed by Michael 16th November 2019

Lovely to stay in a place that was very cosy but also very clean and modern! Excellent customer service. A small supermarket and newsagent are nearby and have good opening times for any essentials you might need. The only (very minor) negative during our trip was some very noisy people leaving the pub next door and getting in a row right outside thRead moree cottage on a Friday night. Hide

A quiet and cosy cottage. Welcome basket was excellent, and there was everything we needed for a short break including games.

This cottage is wonderful! Perfect for a weekend break away visiting beautiful Cotswolds villages and towns. Stow on the Wold is just 25 min drive and Bourton on the Water is just 45 mins drive. The cottage is cosy and the beds are very comfy. The village has 3 lovely pubs and a great chippy!
