The Machine Rooms is a stylish property which sleeps four guests, in two bedrooms, with two bathrooms. The owners have recently refurbished the property to a high standard, with a contemporary finish which differentiates it from the more traditional cottage interiors. The wooden furnishings in the living area and bathrooms give the property a bespoke feel and the exposed flue from the wood burning stove is a lovely reference to the building’s former purpose. Modern facilities include wireless internet access, two Smart TVs with access to Netflix, and a well-equipped kitchen, and there is a pretty patio at the front of the property and off-street parking for two cars.


The Machine Rooms is located in the peaceful and picturesque Cotswold village of Churchill, which benefits from a well-regarded pub, a church and a village green. The village is surrounded by the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with many lovely walks right on the doorstep including the five mile long ‘Kingham and Churchill’ walk.

Churchill is just two miles away from the village of Kingham, which benefits from a direct train line to both London and Birmingham, and is home to the well known Daylesford spa and farm shop. The village is also close to the famous market towns of Chipping Norton and Stow-on-the-Wold, with their wide range of shops, restaurants and pubs, and further afield places such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace and Oxford are also all within easy reach.
