  • Quaint holiday cottage, in a secluded location with a pretty garden
  • Nestled on the edge of one of the prettiest villages in the Cotswolds
  • Ideal for keen walkers with access to an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways
Property code: CC047

This quirky and quaint cottage is situated a few miles from Charlbury, deep in the Cotswolds. The accommodation is perfect for family breaks.

This beautiful, quaint cottage is situated within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is the perfect base for a rural retreat with plenty of walkies and lots of treats for all. Sleeping four humans and two canine companions, make the most of the countryside together, right on your doorstep. Enjoy a brisk walk on an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways nearby, before returning to your home-from-home to dust off muddy paws and boots and enjoy a hot chocolate around the wood burner.

Relax in the cosy lounge, giving Fido a well-deserved belly rub, before heading into the tastefully-decorated kitchen to rustle up a family meal. On the ground floor, there is also a light and airy double bedroom with en-suite shower room. Head upstairs to rest weary walking legs in the elegant double bedroom, with a sloping period beamed ceiling, exuding charm and character. Open up the French doors to the beautiful enclosed garden and dine alfresco on the patio furniture, whilst Mutley plays on the grass.

Venture into the historical city of Oxford for the day (16 miles) or explore the stunning dog-friendly grounds of Blenheim Palace (8 miles). Leave no scent unsniffed and no stick unfetched as you discover the ancient Wychwood Forest. A trail leading to this beautiful woodland starts at Charlbury’s old town centre, less than a mile from your doorstep. After working up an appetite, mingle with the locals and enjoy a treat at the nearby pub, which is dog and people-friendly (0.5 miles).

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

A lovely holiday for our family. Well looked after especially with the Cakes. Everything we needed was there. Could not fault it as it fitted all of the descriptions perfectly. Upstairs not ideal for 6 foot plus Giants but OK for us. The area was perfect even when the weather was not quite so perfect.
