Description

Summary

Garden Cottage is a charming period property which sleeps four guests, in two bedrooms, with a lovely family bathroom. The owners have lovingly decorated the cottage in a warm, contemporary style, with modern facilities including a Freeview TV with Apple TV box, wireless internet access and a well-equipped kitchen. The stylish design has been complemented by character features including original oak beams, a beautiful spiral staircase and a cosy wood burning stove. Despite its central location in the town, the cottage benefits from an unusually large, sunny garden, made wonderfully private by high Cotswold stone walls. There is free on-street parking available close by.

Location

Garden Cottage is located on a quiet road in the heart of the vibrant market town of Chipping Norton, better known as ‘Chippy’ to the locals. One of the livelier locations in the Cotswolds, Chipping Norton has a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, most just a short walk away from the cottage. A few doors down the street from the cottage is the town's popular theatre, providing entertainment for all ages, and on the outskirts stands Bliss Tweed Mill, an impressive piece of architecture with its iconic chimney, a reminder of the wool and tweed heritage that the town is proud of.

Located within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are many walking trails and cycle routes to enjoy, including routes to the mysterious Rollright Stones and the popular village of Kingham with its two highly regarded pubs. Chipping Norton is just a short drive from the chic Cotswolds hotspots of Soho Farmhouse and Daylesford Organic Farm, and also well placed for exploring the many lovely towns and villages of the North Cotswolds, including Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh, Burford and Blockley. Further afield destinations such as Blenheim Palace, the dreaming spires of Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon are within easy reach for day trips.

The back door by the kitchen leads out into the beautiful walled garden, in which the foundations of three former cottages have been transformed into an unusual multi-level space with carefully thought-out cottage garden planting. A paving stone pathway leads uphill to the first patio, a sunny spot with a gas barbecue and garden table and seating for four. The path continues uphill under a rose-covered archway to a pergola and second patio featuring seating for four and a fire pit. From here the path bends back through an elevated wild flower meadow, where there is a hammock slung under an old plum tree and, further on, a bench for enjoying the sights and scents. With the lowest wall on the long south side, the garden enjoys sunshine throughout the day, while mature trees provide welcome shaded areas in the warmer months. Please note that there is a steep drop between levels at several places in the garden.
