A lovely cottage with a very homely feel set in the very pretty town of Charlbury.

Ideal location close to shops and places to eat in the evening. Ideal for dogs with enclosed rear garden and leading straight out onto lovely footpaths for long walks. Very clean and welcoming. The downstairs bedroom and shower room ideal for those with limited mobility. However very steep stairs to access upstairs bedroom and low ceilings.
