    “This was our first family holiday and the first outing since Lockdown measures were relieved - Anna went above and beyond to make sure our stay was the best we could have asked for.”

    The place is incredible - the under floor heating and fireplace kept us cosy whilst it rained and the nearby area was perfect for walks with the dogs. When it came to the end of our stay, we wish we could have stayed for longer - would love to come again.

High Cogges Farm Cottages

Set at the end of a quiet road in High Cogges near Witney are The Granary and Cartshed. The two newly converted properties are set in the peaceful Oxfordshire countryside with shared access of the adjoining wood. The Granary is a Grade II listed, reverse-level property for two that retains many of its wonderful original features. The Cart Shed is a family-friendly and contemporary property for up to six guests with an option for a double sofa bed as extra accommodation in the upstairs twin/double bedroom. The two properties are connected by a contemporary glass link (that can be locked either side to separate the two) so provide great possibilities for a family or group gatherings. The building has been converted to high environmental standards with a focus on reducing the carbon footprint of the buildings in their new life. Electricity is supplied from the farm solar panels during daylight hours. The heating and domestic hot water comes from an air source heat pump. There is a large outdoor space, consisting of a lawned area with furniture and you are welcome to access the adjoining wood, where the owners have created a recreational space for the properties on the farm. Here you can enjoy plenty of outside space for exploring right next to the accommodation. Amongst the trees are additional seating, a fire pit and an impressive treehouse with child zip line and swing, which should keep children and adults entertained. These immaculate properties are completed to a very high standard, with a high spec finish and will provide a memorable and luxurious retreat to the countryside. The surrounding area is serene and tranquil, offering excellent walking and cycling opportunities: the owners have provided maps of local walking plus off and on road cycling routes.

The Cart Shed is a luxurious rural retreat in the Oxfordshire countryside, ideal for a family or group gathering for those wanting to explore the picturesque countryside that abounds the area.

With off-road parking for up to three cars (four if you are using both properties) just opposite the property, you can park comfortably and head over to the property, immediately being impressed by the walkway of floor to ceiling windows that runs the length of the ground-floor level of the property, allowing in plenty of natural light.

Step inside the property and onto the warmth of the polished concrete flooring, which provides underfloor heating throughout the ground-floor level.

Leave coats and shoes in the hallway, where hooks and storage are available, and make your way down the impressive hallway towards the open-plan living space.

The kitchen is finished to the highest specification, with a stunning concrete work top and push base cupboards; here you can create delicious home-cooked meals for loved ones, to be enjoyed together at the dining table, before retiring to the sofa and throwing a few logs onto the woodburning stove as you relax with your favourite TV show or enjoy a family movie.

For the day time, the sliding door can be opened to allow in a fresh summer's breeze.

And you have a large glazed sliding door panel that leads directly into the wood for direct access or simply watching the woodland birds through.

When it's time to catch up on rest, choose from three bedrooms; a ground floor double and twin, served by a stylish shower room suite with excellent shower access.

On the first floor is a spacious and light twin with zip/link feature and the option of a double sofa bed for extra sleeping space, apex roof and stunning en-suite bathroom with a choice of bath or shower and a large skylight allowing in plenty of light.

Head outside and into the woodland for an evening around the fire pit, toasting marshmallows together, and during the daytime the children can explore the treehouse and play on the swing, while the lawn and south facing gravel area are great places to sit out with a morning coffee and soak up your peaceful surroundings.

The Cart Shed is an idyllic base for a group gathering in Oxfordshire.
