  • "Lovely cottage and great location, took us a bit of time to find it but well worth the wait."

    The welcome gifts were very much appreciated and we had a fab week as it was very near to the care home we had booked for my mother. Plenty of pots and pans although couldn't find a cheese grater

    Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate your comments and are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. We hope to welcome you again. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "We spent 3 days over Christmas here a delightful little place with a log burner and a Christmas tree a lovely morning walk to the church on Christmas Day and local pubs walking distance away The parking is a real problem though and local neighbours clearly have a problem too, with an elderly mother and 2 cars we were constantly moving the cars a recommendation on where to park with a map would be helpful as there is no where to unload on a bust main road ."

    Thank you for this lovely review and we're so glad you enjoyed your Christmas at Hare House. We're sorry you encountered an issue with parking - Chipping Norton is such a popular village - but we will certainly pass on your suggestion regarding recommendations for parking.

  • "Parking possibility across the street was reduced during our stay in the house."

    Parking was not an great issue. There were only the two of us my wife and I, but we think with six it should be a little bit crowdy especially in the kitchen. Chipping Norton is a great place to explore the Cotswolds, we did many places of the National Trust (being member). We had fine eatings in the Fox and the Chequers

    Thank you for the feedback. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and the beautiful town of Chipping Norton. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Best wishes Manor cottages Property Owner

  • "Hare House is a well equipped & comfortable 3 bedroom property."

    It is well located close to the town centre. The main disadvantage is that the only outside space is a small seating area at the front, secluded from the pavement of a main road into Chipping Norton by a thin hedge. The road noise in the front bedroom is also a minor disadvantage. Overall we felt that it didn’t quite justify its high end price tag.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback. I'm sorry to hear about the noise being a bit of an issue for you and i can assure you we take all feedback on board. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Best wishes Manor Cottages. Property Owner

  • "A group of ladies stayed for the weekend at Hare House , whilst the cottage is well equipped & clean I did feel it lacked certain elements you would expect when paying over £1,000 for a 3 night stay ."

    Some of the decor is a bit dated , cracked tiles in bathroom window sill on middle floor , broken Roman blind in middle room took 2 of us to get down & just left it down for the whole weekend as it was so fiddly , no mirror in top bedroom , about 6 coat hangers in the whole 3 bedrooms ! The only hooks for coats in downstairs toilet did not allow for a long coat as the coat hook is placed over washing machine . The outside space is facing out on to the main road , it is enclosed by hedges but there was a lot of traffic noise from the main . Also the garden was starting to get overgrown it had clearly not been attended to recently . The parking as at booking I realise it did say there was no allocated space but felt there could make suggestions for local parking as a lot of the surrounding roads are double yellow lines & the free parking just up the road was for 12 hours only . The location is very good for the shops , town & pubs . I realise my review sounds really picky but felt for the price things could be better .

    Thank you for the constructive feedback. We hope you had a lovely stay with us despite the few issues. I can assure you we have our maintenance team to fix the tiles and blind. I will also ensure the garden is seen too and we add a description for alternative parking. I do apologies for the inconvenience caused. Best Wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Positives: Perfect location, bedrooms of a good size and comfortable, bathrooms very nice."

    Negatives: The house smells stale and it could not be overshadowed by candles and air freshener. Downstairs is small, not large enough for 6. The kitchen chairs are uncomfortable and it is cramped to eat in the kitchen. There is mould around the kitchen sink. We found a drinks bottle and sweet wrappers underneath one of the sofas. The downstairs toilet gets blocked easily. Generally, the pictures look great in the marketing, but the house is not to the same standard as the advertising. Very disappointing and we left early. We would not return.

    Many thanks for taking the time to feedback on your stay at Hare House. We're very sorry about the cleanliness issues you experienced during your stay at Hare House. This is not the standard we expect our housekeepers to clean to. Therefore, this will be brought to the attention of the housekeeping team to ensure no future guests experience the same problem. If you stay with us in the future and are not satisfied, please do call and we will do all we can to rectify this issues. Property Owner

  • "Lovely area, plenty of restaurants and cafes."

    Parking was a bit of an issue but we were warned in advance so expected it on arrival. The photos of the cottage on your we site must have been taken quite a while ago as the bushes out front are much more established now. In respect of this , the downstairs of the property could do with some tlc, was shocked about the state of the walls and skirtings on entering. Confusing situation about the bins, could not find a recycling one, hence the main one was full when we left, sorry. Finally a table and chairs in the garden would have been welcome. Overall a good stay though.

    Many thanks for your feedback on Hare House. We shall look at the issues raised and get these addressed. We aim for all of our guests to have the best possible experience during their stay. Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "A few small things spoilt an otherwise lovely week."

    There was sufficient room for four but six people would be a bit tight. There was no microwave, which surprised us. Similarly the absence of a cafetiere. The second floor bath looked 'cool' but I doubt if anyone has used it. Certainly the hand held shower would leave water all over the floor if you were brave enough to try it! Somewhere to hang clothes in the top bedroom would be helpful, too. A light near the key safe would help in that dark ally. Putting wine glasses on the wicker basket which doubled as a coffee table looked dodgy so we didn't! The people who fit out cottages should spend a minimum of two nights there so they know what works and what just looks 'cool'. Apart from that everything was OK!

    Thank you for your feedback. We will look in to all the issues raised. We hope to welcome you back to the area in the future. Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Great location close to shops, pubs and restaurants - loved the quirky rooms but mind low doorways."

    It’s very clean and well appointed. Well equipped kitchen and large living room. Extra armchair would be useful for 6 people to be more comfortable. Parking close to house not always possible but managed to find a space close by. Try the Swan inn (Ascot under Wychwood ) superb food. A Small table and chairs in the front garden would be a nice addition to sit outside.

    Thank you for the great recommendation for the Swan Inn and for the comments on how we could improve the property. Manor Cottages Property Owner

    Perfect for a winter break as it is so close to great pubs, restaurants and shops. We would thoroughly recommend it. When we had a sight issue with hot water Manor Cottages were swift and courteous in sorting it out. One tiny point - shame there wasn't even a tiny microwave.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location 1 minute walk from centre of village and 1 minute from park which with kids and dog was perfect."

    Very clean and well maintained with comfy beds and amazing top en suite bedroom, Very traditional which meant a little creaky and front room hard to heat up despite radiator and log burner. Property would also benefit from an iron. welcome pack with cookies and (a good) bottle of prosecco was a very thoughtful touch. Easy booking and check in and out although 4pm check in and 10am check out felt pretty tight and limited our time in the cottage which was a shame.

    Thank you for you comments, w!are very pleased you enjoyed your stay at Hare House. There is an iron at the property, we are sorry you couldn't find it and will leave instructions for future guests. Our check in and out times are 10am & 4pm to ensure the property is in top condition for the next guest. Property Owner

  • "The house itself was fine although could have been clearer, lots of dust on skirting boards base of taps grubby mats dirty and floors sticky."

    As there was only the very small outside space at the front of the house we felt it could have made into a nice space to sit with some nice seating. As things are at the moment I would not consider hare house a 5 star rental.

    Firstly thank you for choosing Hare House and we are extremely sorry that the cleanliness was not up to our usual standard. In relation to the outside space at the front, as you state it is very small and it is felt as it is open to a busy main road, seating out there would generally not be used by guests. There is a bench out the front if guests do wish to sit outside. Property Owner

  • "Cottage is in an excellent position right in the centre of town and really easy to get everywhere using Chipping Norton as your base."

    Also found the bus service to Oxford very cheap and convenient. The cottage was lovely - just a few minor niggles. The lounge could do with another easy chair - for six the two sofas are not sufficient. Not enough pillows for each person to have two each. We were lucky with car parking but it is not as easy on the street as Manor Cottages led me to believe when I specifically asked! Overall it was a great house and would return.

The property

Hare House is a truly neat-as-a-pin town house as one could wish for.

Set across three floors and stylishly updated for families and small groups, this gem of a holiday home is the perfect spot to make the most of Chipping Norton.

Located a few moments from the market square, this gorgeous home has a lovely, cosy feel to it warm and welcoming with colour and style that makes it feel like it's fresh from the pages of a magazine!

The owners clearly have a good eye for style, yet have kept it simple and restful and nicely uncluttered.

The flare also comes to life with the little pictures of rabbits and hares you will come across.

Inside, there is a spacious living room with wood burner, a compact but well equipped kitchen for your inner Nigella...

whilst upstairs are three large bedrooms and two luxury bathrooms, all large and airy and with plenty of space to spread out and relax.

Outside is a small gravelled terrace area, but to be honest you are just as likely to pop up the street to one of the local cool cafes to save on your washing up!!

We really like Hare House and love its 'feel'.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
