  • "Absolutely loved our stay at Chippy Cottage."

    Wonderfully equipped, beautifully located, gorgeously decorated etc. Thank you so much - we would come back in a heartbeat and may well do so depending on where our family is next year. Our family is currently split up across the Atlantic with two of our kids at uni in the UK and one still with us in Connecticut, U.S., and your cosy cottage provided just a lovely place for us all to reconnect over Thanksgiving.

    Thank you for this lovely review. We're delighted that your family managed to celebrate Thanksgiving at Chippy Cottage and that you enjoyed your stay so much. We would love to welcome you again when you next visit the UK. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "1. Black mould on the wall under the window of bedroom 1, the bedroom in which our 2 year old slept, 2."

    Vacuum cleaner didn’t work - had to bring one in. 3. Not enough cutlery, china and cooking utensils for 6 + child 4. Oven not clean on arrival. On the positive side, cottage was attractive, warm and comfortable, though it is important to eliminate the mould!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear of the issues you experienced. The owner has investigated and responded to your comments. The mould was only superficial and wiped off easily. It was only due to a cushion which had been left wet, so was just restricted to the wall directly behind the cushion. There is no damp problem in the property. The vacuum cleaner bag needed emptying and the housekeeping team have checked the tableware and the oven. We are glad that you were warm and comfortable during your stay.

    Only downfall was lack of parking but would recommend

    Thank you for your feedback. We're glad you loved the cottage and location. Although there is free roadside parking it does sometimes get very busy in Cotswold villages but we hope this didn't impact your stay. Character Cottages Property Owner

    The cottage was of a very high standard with traditional beams, yet had everything modern that you need. It was a great central place to be based in the Cotswolds. There are some lovely pubs nearby. I would recommend this Cottage and would definitely go back there again.

  • "Beautiful, cosy and stylish cottage."

    Really great central location in Chipping Norton. Thoughtful touches on arrival such as delicious cake as well as bread and milk in the fridge. Also very useful antibacterial hand gel and wipes. Very swift communication. The cottage ground floor keeps really cool despite the heat but it gets hotter on the 1st floor and even hotter in the top bedroom. Saying that a fan was provided and over 30 degrees heatwave doesn’t happen that often in the Cotswolds. All in all would highly recommend.

  • "A great cottage in a perfect location near the centre of Chipping Norton."

    The cottage has been renovated to a high spec, with really good facilities, great little kitchen, good bathroom and even a useful utility room. The rooms are all a good size, and the beds comfy! If over 6 foot, You will need to watch your head when going into the bathroom and bedrooms, and the stairs are a little awkward to come down as the beams are quite low at the bottom. There are great finishing touches throughout which are really lovely to see and made our stay really enjoyable. It's just a short walk to the Theatre and lots of pubs/restaurants and take-aways. We had no trouble parking outside each night, but you do get a permit to park in the premier inn car park which we didn't ever need to use.

    Very stylish and lots of lovely touches. Great location, a 2 minute walk from the centre of Chipping Norton but on a quiet, pretty street. Very well equipped. Hosts were very friendly and responsive and provided lots of info about the local area in the guest book. - The only slight downside for us is that there is only one bathroom which isn’t much considering it can sleep up to 6 but this is obviously fully disclosed.

  • "The cottage was absolutely perfect for two couples and two children."

    The welcome cake was much appreciated as was the milk and coffee. We thought the owners had done a brilliant job of making the cottage nice and modern but keeping its gorgeous original features. Absolutely loved the loft bedroom and cosy living room. We brought a tipi for the kids as a late Christmas present and this stayed up in the living room all weekend so it was great to have room for the kids to play in it. Stairs were quite steep which was a worry with the kids but can't be helped. Overall thought Chippy Cottage was beautiful and homely and could have definitely done with more than three nights there!

    It is easy to get to and the owners have gone the extra mile to make guests feel at home. We loved our stay. There was a special extra which we did not expect, and that was a delicious cake awaiting us on the kitchen table. There were six of us, and even though the cottage was small, we did not trip over each other. All the bedrooms are a good size and very comfortable.

The property

Chippy Cottage is a beautifully refurbished Cotswold stone cottage, dating back to the 17th century, located in the heart of the well-known market town of Chipping Norton.

The cottage is the perfect homely base for exploring the lovely Cotswolds as a group of six or in conjunction with neighbouring Garden Cottage for larger groups.

A raised footpath leads you up to the front door of Chippy Cottage, which opens into a small hallway and into a warm and inviting sitting room that has lovely exposed Cotswold stone walls, oak beams and an inglenook fireplace with a warming woodburning stove and a unique, traditional bread oven; providing a welcoming and tranquil space for you and your loved ones to sink into the inviting sofas and watch a film using the DVD player connected to the Apple TV.

The chef of the group can rustle up a delicious evening meal in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, which is a small space that has been cleverly designed to maximise the available space, home to a wooden dining table for you to enjoy your meals at whilst toasting to your holiday ahead.

A handy utility room sits adjacent to the kitchen/diner containing a convenient dishwasher, microwave and washing machine so you can leave with a bag full of clean clothes!

When night falls, wooden stairs lead you up to the first floor where you are welcomed by a peaceful reading area with a bathroom at the end of the hall and two bedrooms, the first of which is a spacious, well-presented room with ample storage, a Smart TV, a quaint window seat and a king-size bed, the second has an eye-catching oak timbered wall, a sweet window seat and twin beds.

An attractive staircase with attractive exposed wall and rope handrail guides you up to the eaves of the property where you will find the inviting third bedroom with lovely oak beams, wooden flooring, a Smart TV and a king-size bed.

Once you laid your head to rest for the night, enjoy your morning coffee in the small courtyard garden and soak up the morning sun and fresh country air and get ready for the day before heading out to the centre of Chipping Norton and enjoy a delicious breakfast at The Tea Set, before heading to Chipping Norton museum for a touch of history or on warmer days have a fun-filled day at Chippy Lido, before having a wonderful evening meal at one of the many pubs that sit within Chipping Norton such as The Red Lion and The Fox.

A short car journey will bring you to Chadlington where you will be able to indulge in delicious hamburgers, cool draft beers, lagers, ciders and rosé, and also the interesting cow juice at Diddly Squat Farm!

Nearby Kingham is a peaceful and secluded village, an excellent centre for walking and cycling with a number of walks and cycle rides centred on the village, set in the broad Evenlode valley with wide open village greens and a village shop, a church and two pubs; The Kingham Plough and The Wild Rabbit.

Chastleton is pretty little village lying close to Chipping Norton, where you can visit the well-known Chastleton House which is a splendid Grade l listed Jacobean manor built in the early 1600s.

Choose Chippy Cottage as your base for your holiday to Chipping Norton, you will not be disappointed!
