  • "Great communication from the owners with lots of information before we arrived."

    A lovely bottle of wine, milk and biscuits on arrival. The cottage is very comfortable with plenty of utensils for cooking in the kitchen . The walled garden area is perfect for alfresco meals and a bit of a sun trap. The cottage is well positioned in a lovely village with some great pubs in nearby villages. We would love to return again soon.

  • "A very well modernised and immaculately clean cottage."

    The house has a small area to sit outside and enjoy the sun. Luxurious kitchen and bathrooms. The house is on three floors and as is often the case in older cottages the stairs may be a bit steep for some people Our family of eight enjoyed it immensely. Very good places to eat nearby and plenty of places to visit too.

    TonyMar 2019

  • "A beautifully appointed cottage, very high quality fixtures and fittings."

    We appreciated the luxury touches and the welcome bottle of wine and walnut loaf. The beds are so comfortable with extremely high quality linens. The house is very clean and the interior design is fabulous, we loved the log burner in the lounge.

  • "Modern and clean cottage."

    It had everything we needed: kitchen well equipped, enough towels etc, and all we could need for 2 children. 2 stair gates, cot and high chair. Comfortable beds and food quality bathrooms. Parking Might be an issue to some people, but absolutely fine if you park outside the shop as recommended. Would happily recommend this place to anyone.

  • "Girls get together weekend!"

    Fabulous weekend in a beautiful cottage. We didn’t really explore the local area instead thoroughly enjoyed our time together in this lovely home. Tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. We would definitely consider another trip in the future.

  • "The four of us thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Cotswolds."

    The stay at Honeysuckle cottage was delightful. We toured all the small villages, Stratford, Oxford, Chatsworth, Blenheim, Bath, Hidcote Gardens. It’s a beautiful part of England.

    MaryOct 2017

  • "65th family get together."

    A nice weekend break, visited Stratford on Avon followed by an evening in the Peacok at Oxhill. A great Saturday! Beautiful cottage ideally placed. An excellent weekend. Sunday we visited Hidcote gardens before a pub lunch and walk in Tyse. Needed a much longer stay to really get the most out of this area. Will be back!

    Dave, Chris, Graham, Greg, Emma, Zoe, Charlie And LolaOct 2017

  • "What a beautiful cottage, thoroughly enjoyed our break away with the girls."

    The cottage was very comfortable and homely, it felt like home. The villages were very friendly and five stars for the Chinese. We loved the scenery and the surroundings and would certainly recommend Honeysuckle. We would love to come back, thank you for a lovely stay.

    Celia, Heather, Isabel, Marion, Julie, Cathy And SusanOct 2017

  • "What a lovely way to spend a break."

    The cottage is everything we could have hoped for. Scenery is amazing on the way to Banbury. We would recommend the Castle and Edghill for a superb meal in idyllic surroundings. Thank you once again, we will return.

    The PlumbsAug 2017

  • "We had a lovely family weekend at Honeysuckle Cottage."

    The cottage was immaculate and had everything we needed. Character Cottages were very helpful and responded quickly to any questions. The village itself was ideal with the children's playground opposite and the shop just a minute's walk away selling the most delicious artisan bread. We look forward to booking another break with you.

    BeverleyJul 2017

  • "We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Honeysuckle Cottage!"

    Good kitchen and living room facilities and the beds were so comfy, loved sleeping here! Nice surrounding village with shops, pub, tearoom and garden. Went to Stratford for the day and looked around Shakespeare’s birth place, house and garden. Recommend Stratford for the day, lots of exciting things to see. If you go on Shakespeare week there are lots of Shakespeare based activities to do. The local village has everything you might need from food to cleaning products. Nice sunny weather! Warwick Castle is nice to visit and not too far away. Overall this cottage is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed in and we all liked the shops and sunny weather! Good space to walk around in and nice atmosphere! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay here!

    Ruth And FamilyMar 2017

  • "The beds are so comfy and the village so pretty."

    We all really enjoyed ourselves and I’d love to come back. We went to Warwick Castle and it was really fun but a bit scary. We have had a lovely weekend here at Honey suckle Cottage for a family reunion weekend. After traveling from Nottingham, Leicester and Surrey, we were very pleased with the house – how comfortable it is and how everything had been thought of! We stopped at The Peacock in Oxhill for lunch on the Friday which was lovely and the village very picturesque. On Saturday we went to Warwick Castle for the day as we had been given tickets. I wonder if there would be more to do there in season? And the children’s playground was closed which was a shame, although the maze was fantastic! On Sunday we went to Leamington Spa and had a roast at The Fox & Vivian which was excellent! Amazing food but you definitely need to book! The playground opposite the house is a lovely surprise and we spent every evening there playing – we can also highly recommend the fresh bread from the village shop!

    Dan & FamilyMar 2017

  • "We spent a wonderful weekend here for the celebration of our son’s 40th."

    The cottage is wonderfully decorated and has everything you could possibly want. Thank you. If you fancy traveling to Moreton-in-Marsh, about 10 miles, The Greedy Goose ay Chastleton (GL56 0SP) is a must for lunch!

    StephanieMar 2017

  • "What a beautiful cottage in a quiet village."

    Had a fantastic time meeting up with old friends from London and the kids had a ball! We will definitely be returning later on in the year, everything we need here. Thank you!

    SarahFeb 2017

  • "A fabulous weekend with friends, much talking, some walking and plenty of good food!"

    Lovely Chinese take away from The Peacock and lots of living space for us all to relax. This is a beautiful home and very well equipped, we would certainly recommend it. A spot of retail therapy in Stow-on-the-Wold really topped the weekend off, plus a gorgeous lunch in The Sheep! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    BiancaFeb 2017

  • "What a fabulous gem of a house and what a fantastic weekend we had!"

    We booked as a Uni friends reunion weekend with people coming from Manchester, Leeds, Cambridge and Bristol. So much laughter our ribs hurt! Loved walking the circle walk past the airfield and to the Bell for some bar snacks. Came back to a roaring log fire! Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will be back next year!

    HazelJan 2017

  • "Fabulous house, beautifully decorated to a high spec."

    We had a wonderful New Year’s stay as a group of 8 adults, lounge is much bigger than it looks in the photos. Kitchen was perfect for big 'family' meals. Smart TV was great, if it were mine I'd have a selection of board games/dvds available to guests but a minor thing!

    ClareDec 2016

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Honeysuckle cottage."

    It was a perfect location for us to explore the beautiful country side nearby and the house was great! Tatiana Grew

  • "Our family has enjoyed a lovely weekend at the cottage."

    We chose this as a central point for traveling from different parts of the country. It proved to be a perfect location and the accommodation has been first class, having everything we needed. We will certainly recommend it!

    David & FamilyDec 2016

  • "Yes, another 70th!"

    Great accommodation for a family occasion. Weather not so good but spent two days enjoying the comforts of Honeysuckle Cottage. Loved the contemporary accommodation in a very cosy home – tempted to light up the fire but general family time overtook the occasion. The smaller ones 3-9 years enjoyed their individual exploring experiences around the house in providing a relaxed environment. Many thanks.

    Clare & FamilyNov 2016

  • "A big thank you for a great holiday with a faultless cottage."

    We’ve celebrated a 70th birthday and getting engaged too! All the family had a great time around the village and coming back to a cosy fire. Local pub was very friendly and the Chinese take-away was pretty good too! Thanks again.

    A wonderful memory of activities, wonderful food, love and laughter. What a wonderful family I have! A beautiful house, well stocked, spotlessly clean, wonderful showers; perfect!

    Sep 2016

  • "We have had a very good stay, lovely weather."

    Visited The Castle at Edgehill which overlooks the battle site of 1624. Also the church at Radway where there is an interactive museum about the battle of Edgehill – open all year and free! Upton House is also well worth a visit. Good Chinese meal from The Peacock.

    LynnSep 2016

  • "Booked as a birthday weekend away from London; our first time in the Cotswolds and we’ve had an amazing time!"

    Thank you so much – we’ve enjoyed many family meals together and had loads of fun driving through the English countryside. Would love to come back again – those beds are so comfy!

  • "Booked as a surprise for my 50th birthday with my family."

    A superb home. Very clean and extremely well equipped. The village is quiet and friendly. Enjoyed a great Chinese from The Peacock. Also visited the White Horse on the way to Banbury and had a lovely meal. Bourton-on-the-Water and Stratford-Upon-Avon were both great days out. Would recommend the cottage to others.

The property

Honeysuckle Cottage is a large cottage in the lovely village of Middle Tysoe.

This stylishly furnished cottage is ideal for large families or groups of friends who are seeking a wonderful getaway break to this stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

At the end of a row of cottages you will find Honeysuckle Cottage, and upon entering through the front gate you will find the cottage’s stable-style front door, which opens into the wood panelled hallway, where you can kick off your shoes and enter into the large, dual aspect sitting room that has been lovingly furnished for complete comfort, where you can sink into one of the two three-seater sofas, and watch your favourite show on the Smart TV, as the woodburning stove keeps the room warm and toasty.

When dinner time comes around, make your way into the well-equipped kitchen/diner, and make use of the wonderful appliances such as the electric range cooker and fridge/freezer, to cook up delicious meals, before retreating to the bright and airy dining area to dig into your meal sat at the lovely reclaimed oak table.

Make use of the enclosed, south-west facing walled garden, which has a patio and gravelled area with an outdoor table set and a charcoal barbecue, perfect for alfresco dining in warmer months.

Back inside, you will find a handy utility room with a washer/dryer, as well as a cloakroom with a basin and WC and finally a rear hallway, which is a useful space to store coats and shoes.

A half-panelled staircase leads you up to the first floor, where there are two homely, welcoming king-size bedrooms with ample storage space for your belongings, one of which benefits from an en-suite shower room, as well as the family bathroom which has an inviting bath, and a rain shower over, where you can enjoy an invigorating rinse and be welcomed by a toasty towel thanks to the heated towel rail!

A further staircase leads up to the eaves of the cottage, where there is a dual aspect twin room and a triple aspect twin room, sharing the floor with the shower room.

The early risers of the group can enjoy breakfast for two at the breakfast bar which has two adjustable height stools and then head out into the side courtyard area to take a seat at the wooden bench and take advantage of the morning sun, with a warming mug of coffee!

Once your group are ready for the day, head out and discover the delightful surrounding countryside, with spectacular views in this "off the beaten track" village which is largely self-contained, with a local pub (the Peacock Inn), Chinese take-away, Post Office with shop, and a very well-stocked village store with off-license.

Not forgetting the children's playground just a short walk away.

Head for a great day out at Heythrop Zoological Gardens where you can discover an array of wonderful exotic animals, and finish your day with a pub dinner at one of the many pubs that sit within nearby Chipping Norton such as The Red Lion and The Fox.

Visit the famous Cotswold market town of Moreton-in-Marsh, where you can enjoy a wonderful breakfast at The Cotswold Tea Room, before heading over to Cotswold Falconry Centre to discover the range of falcons, eagles, owls and other birds of prey, and finish off your day with a tipple and meal at The Black Bear Inn.

The bustling market town of Stow-on-the-Wold is nearby, where you can take a walk around the market square, which is the heart of the community and offers boutique shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, as well as the Farmers’ Market which occurs every second Thursday of each month, featuring inviting local produce.

There is something for everybody in Middle Tysoe, so make Honeysuckle Cottage your base!

About the location


Hook Norton 7.3 miles; Banbury 10.2 miles; Stratford-upon-Avon 12.5 miles.

Middle Tysoe is part of the civil parish of Tysoe, in the Stratford-on-Avon District of Warwickshire. The parish is on the boundary with Oxfordshire, about 7.5 (12 km) northwest of Banbury. The parish includes the villages of Middle and Upper Tysoe and the separate hamlet of Lower Tysoe. The earliest known surviving record of the place-name is as Tiheshoche in the Domesday Book of 1086. It was Tiesoch in the reign of Henry I (1100–35), Thiesho in a charter from 1131–40 and Tisho in a royal roll from 1201. The name is derived from the Old English Tīges hōh, meaning "spur of land belonging to the god Tiw". Today in the villages you will find
a village Post Office, a shop, a pub and a take-away Chinese restaurant. There is also a beautiful parish church of St Mary which dates back the 11th century and a number of properties which date back to the 17th century. The parish lies on the edge of the Cotswolds, where you will find breath-taking landscapes and a number of lively market towns and historic trails. A little further away is the medieval market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, where you will find further quality amenities and attractions including Shakespeare's Birthplace, Anne Hathaway's Cottage and the tropical greenhouse of butterflies. Middle Tysoe is a pretty base for exploring this part of Warwickshire / Oxfordshire.
