Set at the heart of a thriving family-run organic working Cotswold farm in between the quaint villages of Filkins and Eastleach, Stable Cottage is an arresting stone dwelling perfectly positioned for a rural retreat to the spectacular Oxfordshire countryside.

Boasting stunning undisturbed views across the farm, visitors can really feel a part of the excitement as they watch chickens and ducks wander peacefully around the grounds.

Make yourself feel right at home in this warm and welcoming abode, as you curl up in the sitting room after a long and eventful day whilst watching a captivating movie on the Smart TV.

Make your way into the well-equipped kitchen and discover everything you could possibly need to create a mouth-watering meal for the whole group to enjoy whilst gathered at the dining table.

Whisk yourself away to the first floor where you can retire for the evening to the spacious double-size or homely twin, or take the staircase up to the second floor should you wish to stay in the flexible third bedroom offering guests the option of a king size or a twin with handy zip/link beds.

A family bathroom can be found servicing all three bedrooms, home to a roomy tub and overhead shower allowing you to choose how to best prepare for the day ahead.

There is a front garden as well as a lovely, enclosed garden at the back with table and chairs, the perfect place to soak in the sun and take in the stupendous countryside views!

Resting on the Gloucestershire/Oxfordshire border, you will be spoilt for choice with so much to see and do throughout your stay.

Spend your days exploring picturesque Cotswold villages or hiking through the scenic Pitham Brook walk and Cascades, and discover Cheese Wharf and the National Trust-owned Buscot Old Parsonage along the way.

Wander the grand halls of the lavish 17th-century dwelling of Blenheim Palace or step back in time at the imposing remains of Minster Lovell Hall and Dovecote, now a popular heritage museum.

Hike to Godstow Abbey and visit the remains of Oxford Castle & Prison, before a tour of La Maison Du Chateau and Pitt Rivers Museum, all of which can be found at the heart of Oxford city.

See the 15-species of alligator at Crocodiles of the World or lose yourself in the 160-acres of wildlife at the Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens.

Delight in a fun-filled day out to Cirencester and see the Roman Amphitheatre, Corinium Museum and well-kept landscapes of Cirencester Park, or spend the day shopping in all your favourite stores at Bicester Village, a pleasant drive away.

Admire the magnificent scenery of the Cotswold Water Park, where you try a new and exciting watersport or bask on the popular man-made beach.
