This beautiful country cottage, barn conversion retains many original character features, situated in the heart the Cotswolds offering the perfect base to explore the area.

Set in the sweet village of Shipton-under-Wychwood in the heart of the north-eastern Cotswolds, this cute little cottage will get romantic hearts of humans and hounds fluttering. Just down the lane lies the magical Wychwood Wild Garden (0.5 miles), an enchanting adventure for four paws or two. A selection of walking and cycle routes are abundant, including the Wychwood Way, a 37-mile circular trail around the Royal Forest of Wychwood. Explore the Cotswold towns and villages of Milton-under-Wychwood (1.5) with its superb canine-cordial pub, Bruern (3 miles) and unspoilt Burford (4 miles), one of the most picturesque towns in England.

Inside you’ll find a charming ground-floor interior, lavished with love and bursting with rural charm. After wild days of adventure, unwind in the lounge with its exposed Cotswold stone walls, comfy furniture and patio doors to the terrace and gorgeous English country garden, which canine comrades will adore. Prepare sumptuous feasts of fine local fare in the beautiful tiled kitchen/diner, with its skylight and verdant garden views. Enjoy al fresco delights on balmy evenings, before relaxing soaks in the shower and dreamy nights in the delightful twin bedroom.

Enjoy Burford’s lively calendar of events including the biennial Burford Festival in June and Levellers Day in May. Explore Chipping Norton (7 miles), with its ancient market, terrific little theatre and superb independent shops. Discover the delights of Stow-on-the-Wold (10 miles), the highest Cotswold town with its vast Market Square, fabulous fashion and antique shops and 11th-century church. Furry ones will love the freedom of Batsford Arboretum (16 miles), home to one of the country’s largest private tree collections that explodes into spectacular colour each spring and autumn. Nearby Moreton-in-Marsh (14 miles) is a fanfare of history, architecture, and excellent tearooms; its Bell Inn inspired the Prancing Pony in Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.

Fantastic cottage great location although the public transport is a bit hit and miss. You need a car to get about. 2 local pubs in walking distance both do food. Shop about half a mile away. Beautiful relaxing garden to use and very comfortable cottage inside. So peaceful very rarely hear any traffic. Would highly recommend.

A lovely setting and beautiful garden. The cottage is equipped very well with everything that you need to cook. Everything is of good quality. The fridge is quite small but you can stock up locally so don't bring too much in the way of cold items. There is a small freezer which is very handy. The village is very quiet and a great base for touring tRead morehis beautiful area. Hide

We were met by Mrs Ballot with a very warm welcome. She was so very helpful and we felt at home immediately. It was a most relaxing holiday and we certainly hope to visit Turkey Cottage again.

This is a beautiful property in an ideal location to explore a wide area. I visited many of the Idilic Cotswold villages, plus Blenheim Palace, Oxford, Cirencester and Stratford comfortably (well under an hour), I headed to Henley on Thames which was just over an hour and Bath wouldnt be much further. I couldnt have been made more welcome by Hazel Read moreand Byron (the King Charles). Everything you could require in the cottage and if the weather is fine the garden patio is a lovely addition.
