Description

Summary

High Ridge is an immaculately presented Cotswold stone cottage which sleeps eight guests, in four bedrooms, with two modern bathrooms. Renovated to a high standard throughout, the house benefits from two reception rooms and a striking open plan kitchen/dining room with bi-fold doors opening into the attractive garden.

The property has been finished in a contemporary style with character features including a wood burning stove, wooden beams and exposed Cotswold stone walls, and these period pieces are complemented by stylish décor and facilities including wireless internet access, underfloor heating in the kitchen and two Smart TVs. There is an enclosed garden at the rear of the property and off-street parking for one car is available at the back of the garden.

Location

High Ridge is located in the charming village of Milton-under-Wychwood, with its pretty village green and enclosed play park for children. The village benefits from a local supermarket, a library and The Hare, an excellent pub which was voted one of the top 100 eating spots in the UK by The Sunday Times food critics. Once part of the medieval Wychwood Forest, the area is now predominantly farmland yet the magical Wychwood Wild Garden in neighbouring Shipton-under-Wychwood is a woodland preservation area, left relatively untouched, and is open all year round.

Milton-under-Wychwood is well placed for visiting the many lovely towns and villages of the North Cotswolds, including Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and Burford. Burford is a popular medieval town in the Windrush Valley, with plenty of walks and cycle routes on its doorstep to explore, as well as a wide range of eateries and shops to enjoy. Further afield destinations such as Oxford, Blenheim Palace and Cheltenham are also within easy reach for day trips, and Adam Henson’s Cotswold Farm Park makes for a fun family day out.
