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.

Bloxham is a village in northern Oxfordshire, on the edge of the Cotswolds and 3 miles from the busy market town of Banbury, home of the famous Banbury Cross mentioned in the well-known nursery rhyme. Discover the history and heritage at the nearby Hook Norton Brewery's visitor centre, just under 7 miles away. There is something for everyone to do, with Bicester Village shopping outlet, with its array of designer shops, Silverstone race track, home of the British Grand Prix, and the traditionally English towns and villages of the Cotswolds on the doorstep, including Chipping Norton, Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh. A little further afield is the university city of Oxford, with all its historic buildings, architecture and museums.

Step back in time, entering from the pretty courtyard into the beautifully presented lounge of this traditional honey coloured stone cottage, with contemporary seating and soft furnishings that  further enhance the character. Relax with the Smart TV and Netflix for a cosy night in, after supper in the dining area just off the lounge. The bespoke well equipped kitchen is just perfect for cooking your favourite meals with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and washing machine. Heading up the cottage style stairs you will find two bedrooms, a double and a twin. On this floor you will also find a bathroom with shower over bath and a WC.

This quaint cottage sits within the courtyard of the neighbouring pub and offers use of the communal gardens with seating. There is off-road parking for 2 cars.

To anyone who would like to stay in the Cotswolds stay here. The central location makes it great for exploring. The decor felt modern and fresh. The best part is after a day out it is incredibly welcoming to come back to a cottage that is attached to a homely welcoming pub. Additionally, the cottage owners touches were incredibly welcoming. These tRead moreouches included some croissants, milk, coffee and other essentials which made it nice to have available after traveling. Hide

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!
