  • "We had a fab time at Horseshoe Cottage."

    The cottage was fab and had everything in it that we could possibly want and more. The weather was fab and the scenery and pretty villages were superb.

    Mrs BrownSep 2021

  • "Lovely cottage and a lovely village, we were lucky enough to be there for the car show on the green…"

    Mrs PriceAug 2021

  • "Fabulous week at Horseshoe Cottage."

    Comfortable, cosy and delightful. Plenty to do and see nearby.

    Mrs BellJul 2021

  • "The cottage was very well equipped and obviously used by the owners, so it felt like a proper 'home from home'."

    The charming front garden overlooks the village green, and is a stone's throw from a lively village pub. We loved the sunny conservatory, and gazebo in the back garden for breakfast.We were very lucky with the weather and Horseshoe cottage makes an ideal location for splendid Cotswold walks and visiting some first class Gardens. Altogether a lovely relaxing break!

    Mr ElphickJun 2021

  • "Lovely cottage and lots of nice extras, books, maps for local walks and dog treats too"

    Miss CharlesMay 2021

  • "Well equipped cottage in a quiet location with a good local pub/restaurant on the doorstep and within easy reach of bigger villages and towns."

    Plenty of walks in the area albeit the weather made conditions difficult under foot. Take a trip to the Cotswold Distillery if you like gin and the Hook Brewery in Hook Norton for a great breakfast.

    Mr ThorpeMay 2021

  • "The whole experience left a bad taste in my mouth."

    The house was lovely but I had to pay £100 for a double duvet cover that I am certain I didn’t mark. There has been no acknowledgement of that fact. I will not be recommending Sykes or the cottage I stayed in.

    Ms FaulknerApr 2021

  • "Lovely cottage in a good location."

    Lovely kitchen and very well equipped. It was really useful to have the outside sink for washing the dog down after going for some nice walks, unfortunately the weather was not kind to us, it rained pretty much all the time during our week's stay - we certainly had good use of our waterproofs and wellingtons. Would have been useful to have a dustpan and brush, a razor point in the bathroom and a larger mirror in the main bedroom. Also we found that all the kitchen cupboards were full with equipment, so no where much to store your groceries. Thank you for a nice stay, and for preparing the cottage so nicely.

  • "The cottage is beautiful, full of character and comfort."

    A great location for seeing the Cotswolds.

    Mrs ParkerOct 2020

  • "The cottage is beautiful."

    It completely overwhelmed us when we went inside. It was exactly like the pictures. The owners Ken and Gill have equipped it to a very high standard. It was our home for a week. They have thought of everything. I would recommend this cottage and the village which is a great base to see various places in the area. A must when you arrive is the straw kitchen by whichford pottery plus the Norman Knight for food. We went to Broadway and walked to the tower, we visited Oxford, we walked to long Compton and had a meal st the red lion. We went to Bourton on the water and Stow on the Wold, we saw lovely local villages like Burford and a town Banbury. All in all it was an amazing relaxing holiday and would definitely come back to this cottage if we could.

Located on the edge of what is considered the largest village green in England, Horseshoe Cottage is a quintessential English country cottage, resting in the pretty village of Whichford.

An utterly charming cottage packed with homely touches throughout, this is an ideal retreat for those looking to escape to the countryside and enjoy peace and tranquillity.

Located at the junction of Warwickshire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, you are only moments from some of the most popular spots in the northern Cotswolds region, including Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh.

Inside, the cottage retains its wonderful period features, including large, exposed beams, a huge, romantic inglenook fireplace with a roaring fire and lovely pine staircase.

Outside, your enclosed garden overlooks the village green, and is only 100 yards from the very highly regarded village pub, The Norman Knight.

Just 400 yards from the cottage is Whichford Pottery, a gallery and an excellent café, serving breakfast, lunches, coffee and cakes.

The award-winning Cotswolds Distillery is less than 2 miles away, with a shop and a café, if you fancy a spot of lunch - book your slot today!

There are excellent walking and cycling opportunities right from the front door of the cottage, with lovely country sites and a plethora of wildlife to spot along the way.
