  • "We enjoyed our stay at High Ridge."

    The kitchen was well-equipped and clean. The grass had been cut and the outside enclosed space is great but the outside table could do with replacing. It is a lovely village - quiet but within easy access to many Cotswold Attractions. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you

  • "Positives: 1."

    The cottage is in a perfect location to explore the beautiful Cotswolds. 2. It is well decorated, was comfortable and had plenty of room for the 6 of us. 3. Music system was great - we really enjoyed sitting in the kitchen/dining area. Negatives: 1. Cleanliness was an issue. We discovered dirty baking trays in the dishwasher when we arrived, dirty pans in the cupboards and in one bedroom, the carpet in the fitted cupboard was filthy. We even found an old sock from a previous guest! Not great! 2. Some bedrooms don't have full length mirrors, which we found frustrating. 3. The garden could have done with a tidy and the lawn needed mowing. It didn't feel very inviting, particularly after spotting a huge rat by the bins! 4. Finally, we had an issue with the hot water on the second night. Whilst myself and a friend were having separate showers, the water suddenly turned ice cold for both of us mid shower. After a call to Sykes and the maintenance guy then giving us a call, it did eventually get sorted but took about an hour and we had to contact The Hare restaurant to say that we would be late for our reservation. We tried not to let it spoil our evening but we would expect a house catering for a lot of people to have adequate facilities, especially considering the cost we paid per night for the cottage.

  • "Generally an enjoyable stay."

    Lacking a little TLC in areas. Shower on 1st floor could do with thorough clean/replacing. Kitchen cupboards have flaking paint. Generally maintenance and repair would make the property faultless

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at High Ridge. We value all feedback given by our guests and we will pass on your comments to the Housekeeper for review. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Thank you for a fabulous stay."

    The house was perfect - loved the bifold doors and we had the most perfect weather. The cottage was close to all towns - you must eat at the Kingham Plough - food outstanding.

  • "The house is really nice decorated."

    We like it very much. The garden is nice too though it is raining throughout the stay for us, but still it is a lovely place. The kids just miss this place so much and do not even want to move on to our next stop. :-)

  • "Wonderful place to stay!"

    We visited for a family birthday, and had a brilliant time. The cottage was so clean and provided ample space to cooking and entertaining over the weekend. The location is brilliant for exploring the Cotswolds, and there is a fabulous pub (The Hare) which is a two minute walk away!

The property

Nestled in the desirable village of Milton-under-Wychwood in the Evenlode Valley, is this fabulous Cotswold stone cottage, High Ridge.

Boasting a fantastic location, with an award-winning pub on its doorstep, as well as being surrounded by stunning Cotswold countryside, the property is the perfect base for a family or group of friends who are seeking a relaxing break.

As you enter into the property, the welcoming snug room greets you on arrival, where you can look forward to cosying up on one of the armchairs whilst delving into the pages of a compelling novel, for some peace and quiet.

Moving through the property, you will find the beautiful sitting room, with an eye-catching Cotswolds stone feature wall; relax in here of an evening with your loved ones as the woodburning stove crackles away in the background as you watch your favourite show on the Smart TV.

The chef of the group will have no problem finding their way around the contemporary kitchen/diner, that contains all the appliances required to cook up a delicious meal, with a centre stage island sat in the middle with a five-ring induction hob.

The underfloor heating will keep you warm on a cold winter evening as you and your guests dine at the large wooden dining table and toast a glass to the beginning of your holiday.

A staircase in the snug with a sweet rope banister and an attractive exposed Cotswold stone wall leads you up to the first-floor, where you will find three homely bedrooms to lay your head for the night, two of which contain a king-size bed and the other contains a super-king-size bed that is zip/link and can be made up to twin beds on request.

If you fancy a relaxing soak before bed, head to the bathroom where you can indulge amongst the bubbles in the wonderful freestanding bath.

A second set of steep stairs with a rope banister lead up to the second-floor, where you are immediately greeted by a spacious landing area with two armchairs and a Roberts radio.

Here, you will find the spacious master bedroom in the eaves, with a super-king-size bed, which share the floor with a shower room with a walk-in shower.

In the morning, head downstairs to make you and your guests a warming mug of coffee using the Nespresso coffee machine, and head outside through the stunning bi-fold door to listen to the morning bird songs and catch the sunrise.

A decking area with an outdoor table set provides the perfect space for alfresco dining, and there is even a charcoal barbecue for you to make use of later in the afternoon.

A lovely lawn area gives your furry friend a space to stretch their legs in the morning, before you all get ready to head out for the day.

Pick up produce for your barbecue at the local supermarket, before loading it into the fridge/freezer and making your way back out to discover your local surroundings.

Milton-under-Wychwood has a pretty village green and enclosed play park for children and The Hare pub, which was voted one of the top 100 eating spots in the UK by The Sunday Times food critics – be sure to make a visit here during your stay!

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.

For a fun day out for all, head to Rissington Kart Club, where you can partake in a high-speed race from Cadets to the awesome 250 Gearbox karts; with its fast, wide sweeping bends, billiard smooth surface and big run-off areas makes it one of the best drivers’ circuits in the country.

Nearby village of Bourton-on-the-Water, affectionately known as the “Venice of the Cotswolds”, is a wonderful place to visit and is not to be missed during your stay; there are an array of shops, restaurants, pubs and attractions in Bourton, including the interesting Model Village, showcasing Bourton in model form, as well as the fun Dragonfly Maze, where you can get lost amongst the hedges and race your friends and family to the finish!

There is something for everyone in Milton-under-Wychwood, so make High Ridge your base for a fun-filled yet relaxing holiday.
