Once the village sweet shop, this beautifully presented and recently modernised stone-built cottage dates from 1790. Nestled in a quiet lane in the heart of Hook Norton, a pretty village on the edge of the idyllic Cotswolds, Bridge Hill Cottage is a short walk from the village shop, from two pubs offering fine ales, wines and food, and with wonderful countryside only a short drive away.

Description

Summary

Bridge Hill Cottage is a beautiful late 18th century Cotswold stone house that sleeps six guests in three bedrooms, with further sleeping space for two guests on a double sofa-bed in the "Minstrels' Gallery”. There are two well-presented bathrooms, a downstairs cloakroom/utility room, as well as two separate living rooms. The house is elegantly furnished with antiques, and boasts a wealth of character features, including 200-year-old oak beams, an inglenook fireplace with fitted seat, a “Minstrels’ Gallery” and a functioning bar-billiards table. Complementing these period features, the house has modern facilities, including fast Wifi in all rooms, smart TV with Freeview and Alexa Voice Remote, DVD player, and Bose bluetooth speaker.

Location

Located in the quaint village of Hook Norton, Bridge Hill Cottage is situated near the church of St. Peters, with its Norman chancel, early Gothic nave, and its famous font, bells, and wall-paintings. This peaceful and picturesque little village retains period features and charm, and benefits from having three pubs, a labyrinthine local grocery store, a trendy butcher’s, and the local, visit-able Hook Norton Brewery, famous for brewing traditional real ale.

Hook Norton is on the fringe of the Cotswolds, and therefore avoids heavy tourist traffic, allowing visitors to get a real sense of rural life, such as enjoying the glorious countryside, open vistas and lovely woodlands which fall within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Hook Norton is close to the popular Cotswold market towns of Chipping Norton, Moreton-in-Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold, is less than five miles from Great Tew and Soho Farmhouse, and has many stunning countryside walks right on the doorstep.
