A three-storey, classically proportioned Georgian farmhouse with stunning countryside views in all directions, with space for up to 15 guests.

The house is conveniently located on the main A429 Fosseway road, halfway between Moreton-in-Marsh (with the very popular weekly market on a Tuesday) and Shipston-on-Stour, and it is just ten miles north to Stratford-upon-Avon for the RSC and all the Shakespearean history you can soak in. Ten miles south is Stow-on-the-Wold, the Cotswolds' major antiques centre. Two public footpaths lead directly from the house; a 15-minute walk over the road and across the fields to Stretton-on-Fosse and its well-regarded village pub, or if a longer walk is on the cards, try the trail up the hill behind the house with stunning views, to the village of Todenham and another village pub.

This tastefully decorated, rustic farmhouse is the ideal venue for large groups or extended families, boasting shabby chic decor, filled with period features and old bathroom fittings. There are two sitting rooms, one with a sofa bed and both with character fireplaces and wood burners. One room has a television, and the other a video player, in case you want to entertain the kids in a separate living room and leave the adults in peace! The huge beamed traditional farmhouse kitchen is very central to the ambience of the house with seating for 15 people - great for entertaining or simply relaxing while someone is in charge of the food! You can also experience cooking on a traditional Aga (with an electric oven and a hob as a back-up). The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, a dishwasher, fridge and freezer, and a washing machine and utility area. There is an en-suite double bedroom on the ground floor, with a shower over the bath and a WC, and a further bathroom with a shower over the roll top bath and WC. The first floor has two spacious bedrooms, one with a king-size bed with an additional single bed, and one with a double bed. Both rooms have access to a Jack and Jill bathroom with shower over roll top bath, bidet and WC. On the top floor is a further bedroom with a king-size bed and a single bed, plus two twin bedrooms and a bathroom complete with a hand-held shower, roll top bath, bidet and WC.

Outside the house is a lovely enclosed courtyard with Wisteria plants, a charcoal BBQ and garden furniture. There is a small enclosed garden area laid-to-lawn for the kids. To the front of the house there is enough room to park up to six cars (with high double gates). There is also a decked area with a rose arbour and garden furniture.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Please note there is a refundable £300 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

We had had a fab weekend to celebrate my 50th. The house was homely but spacious. We had a great night at the plough in Stretton on fosse; great hosts, good food, they even drove us back to the house!

This is a lovely big house which can comfortably accommodate 10+ people although some of the beds aren't as firm as we would have liked.

We stayed here for my sister's hen do, 12 ladies in total. The space the house offered was great, and the rooms were very well presented and clean. Bathrooms are massive and also very clean.

The outside court yard area is wonderful, and very sociable. The only negative is that it is situated on a main road and is very noisy. Hide

The cottage has ample room for several families/ groups of friends to come together. We had a Waitrose delivery to the door which made catering much easier. The kitchen got very hot when full of guests at meal times as the aga is permanently on and we were blessed with good weather. Short walks are possible from the door. The road is very fast and Read morebusy at the entrance to the property and care should be taken on arrival & departure. Hide
