  • “Location was excellent ,cottage was excellent , parking on arrival was a bit awkward,as the neighbour had parked across both bays ,then she came out an complained about her own bins being in the way ,then decided to force bins past my car after I offered to move then before I parked up ,now the bed it’s suitable for one adult and a small adult at that , if your over 5 ft 5 an on the large size then your going to struggle in this bed .”

    I’m 6ft so was a nightmare sleeping in the bed together

    I’m 6ft so was a nightmare sleeping in the bed together All other amenities in the cottage were fine and it was spotless just a little on the small side for what we paid. Would I return? I would have to say no unfortunately.

The property

Banbury 4.7 miles.

Nestled in the quaint village of Mollington, near Banbury on the fringes of the Cotswolds AONB is Butlers Cottage, a picture perfect thatched abode, ideal for a romantic couple's retreat.

Bring your partner to share quality time together amidst the unspoiled character of the cottage, which is set against the storybook backdrop of the Cotswolds countryside that is awaiting to be explored.

Savour your idyllic surroundings before stepping inside this charming cottage, where contemporary styling and traditional charm combine, making the perfect base to relax and unwind whilst in the company of your loved one.

Wooden beams and exposed stonework are perfectly showcased within the open-plan living space, where the sumptuous sofa invites you in to rest those post-walk soles in front of the feature stone fireplace, turning on the electric stove-effect fire and spending a cosy evening in front of the Smart TV with a glass of wine.

Adjoining the space is the modern kitchen suite, where you can cook up a storm for your partner as you make the most of the quality appliances needed to create a home-cooked feast, and top the evening off with a glass of fizz and a toast to your romantic getaway.

As the evening draws to a close, head upstairs to the beautifully-styled bedroom, where crisp white linens drape across the plush double bed, complemented by the room’s neutral tones and boasting character features, it's the perfect place to catch up on rest, benefitting from access to the bathroom, which offers a bath with shower over, as well as superb exposed wooden floors.

Spend summer afternoons in the pretty garden, relaxing on the bench and soaking up the sunshine with a good book in hand.
