  • "The cottage was very comfortable, and suited us perfectly."

    Christine, the owner, was very responsive to any questions we had. A perfect short stay close to all the places in the Cotswolds that we wanted to visit.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and looking forward to welcoming you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Such a sweet cottage in a perfect location."

    Right in the middle of everywhere we wished to visit during our stay. It made it all the more special that we went in the festive period. Many beautiful places to see with lovely Christmas lights and decorations. The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed, we took our own towels as we were unsure but the host even provided these. Left us milk in the fridge for arrival and we really enjoyed the log fire. The cottage was perfect for us and a real quiet location, laying in bed looking over the endless fields - bliss. Lovely big bath for you to use after a long day of exploring then plenty of kitchen utensils and utilities to ensure you can cook a nice meal then cosy up by the fire. We had a great stay and felt there was nothing the host could improve on. We only wish we could’ve stayed longer! I would recommend this place and in fact have already suggested our friends stay here when they plan to visit the cotswolds in 2021. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Thank you for your lovely comments on Appin Cottage. It is amazing to hear there is nothing to improve. We would love to welcome you and your friends to Appin in the future. Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Arriving in the evening I took food for the week which was put in the fridge."

    The next morning I found everything was frozen as the fridge setting was put on maximum, my food was ruined and the majority thrown out hence a waste of money. There appears to be a problem with the oven which makes a loud clanging noise when heating. The property was not properly cleaned and was disgusting under the sofa, I only moved it slightly to hoover around and saw dog chews, dust, rubbish......I took photos as proof!

    Many thanks for your feedback. We have been in to Appin Cottage to check on the oven, upon inspection there was no loud clanging noise whilst it was heating up. Apologies if the fridge had been turned up high, housekeeping always check the property the day of guests arrival. We will speak to housekeeping regarding the cleanliness and endeavor to get it perfect for future guests. Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage on the edge of the village."

    Village easily accessible by short walk. Comfortable and well equipped, tho not a lot of storage space. Good location for visiting the Cotswolds.

  • "Very nice cottage probably more suited to short breaks due to the lack of garden space but that is made clear before you book but a good location as to being close enough to all attractions but far enough away for a little peace an quiet plus some good pub restaurants in walking distance."

    Very nice.

  • "We loved Appin Cottage!"

    It was in a perfect location for discovering the beautiful Cotswolds, especially for history buffs like us - not too far from Stonehenge and close to amazing historical Medieval villages like Burford and Bourton-on-the-Water. We loved the cottage on sight and it exceeded our expectations.

The property

Appin Cottage is just so cute!

Set down a quiet lane on the edge of the very attractive village of Shipton under Wychwood, and with Burford (3 miles) and Chipping Norton a short drive up the road, you are right in the heart of the Cotswolds.

Not only that, but those with a taste for all things swish can either pop to Daylesford Organic Farm which is about 10 mins away or alternatively you can gorge yourself at the multitude of top notch pubs in the vicinity, all convenient enough for a walk (long or short!) Inside, Appin is a cosy rural retreat with snug woodburning stove which will keep you toasty all year round and large bedroom upstairs that you can soak up the views without so much as lifting your head off the pillow!

The cottage is just spot on for a couple looking for a break and who fancy a little exploring - from this location you can do as little or as much as you wish.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Swinbrook 3.3 miles; Little Barrington 3.4 miles; Minster Lovell 6.1 miles.

Burford is possibly one of, if not THE most famous of the Cotswolds' locations. With its medieval bridge, old stone houses and attractive Tudor and Georgian frontages, Burford is justifiably one of the most picturesque towns in England. Often referred to as the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds', the town was originally a fortified Anglo-Saxon ford which later grew to be an important regional crossroads and wealthy wool town. Located mid way between Oxford and Cheltenham (25 mins each away) it is a little haven of history and beauty that many come to fall in love with when they visit.

The 16th century Tolsey building, once the meeting place for medieval merchants, now houses The Tolsey Museum, a delightful local museum illustrating the town's social and industrial past. The church is stunning, a real gem architecturally with many interesting memorials charting some of Burford's great families. There is also the signature, on the baptisimal font, of Antony Sedley, one of the Levellers besieged in the church in 1649 - three of the ringleaders were executed by Oliver Cromwell's men in the churchyard. History awaits!

With little changing over the centuries, Burford is now very popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping and antiques, and for the wide variety of places to eat, with restaurants, pubs and teashops. It is an ideal base for visiting The Cotswolds area as it is within easy driving distance of popular attractions such as Blenheim Palace, Sudley Castle, Warwick Castle and several National Trust Houses and Gardens. Bourton on the Water, Bibury, Cirencester and Stow on the Wold are all with 25 minutes from the property.
