    “The photos did not do justice for ...”

    The photos did not do justice for this cottage. The front patio area is huge and exceptionally private. Central tree for optional shade. We ate breakfast outside every morning plus "sundowners". Ideal inside if raining for 4 adults. Downstairs bathroom clean with good electric overbath shower. Stairs are steep but don't get too drunk!!! 3 decent dog friendly restaurants within walk. Google: Sun Inn- 50 metres away and very good food and choice of drinks. Pear Tree at end of Village good local ...

    The photos did not do justice for this cottage. The front patio area is huge and exceptionally private. Central tree for optional shade. We ate breakfast outside every morning plus "sundowners". Ideal inside if raining for 4 adults. Downstairs bathroom clean with good electric overbath shower. Stairs are steep but don't get too drunk!!! 3 decent dog friendly restaurants within walk. Google: Sun Inn- 50 metres away and very good food and choice of drinks. Pear Tree at end of Village good local simple food pub but we only drank there. Gate Hangs High is 2 km walk but worth it. All decent beers, choice of menu and beer gardens. Cottage directions rubbish - its right at the top of Bell Hill exactly opposite the entrance to the well stocked Spar on the High St. Very quiet, no boy racers, or slamming of car doors etc. Cottage so good we invited 2 friends to join us for a few days [in the bunk beds] and had a super time. Hook Norton Brewery Tour recommended. Pleasant Cava and chocs on arrival in cottage which had been spotlessly cleaned and well presented. Good local walks. Ideal for visiting local market towns. Loads of information and maps in the cottage. Coffee maker and all necessaries for a week there but take an ice cube tray with you. We'd stop there again and we're all around 60. Ignore the fussy earlier folks' comments.

The property

A delightful 18th century terraced cottage ideally located in the heart of the pretty village of Hook Norton in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

As you step inside this charming cottage the owner's personal touches are evident, together with original features such as flagstone floor, exposed stone walls and ceiling beams.

Enter through a porch into the sitting room which has a warming open fire, comfortable seating and a dining area to seat all guests, ideal for catching up over dinner or enjoying a family board game.

To the rear is the well-equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar and a family bathroom.

Make your way upstairs to the two bright and cheery bedrooms, both having exposed wood floorboards and views over the village.

Outside is a sunny front patio with furniture, perfect for relaxing with a refreshing drink or dining alfresco on a summer's evening.

Take a stroll around the village which has a number of historic buildings, thriving village pubs, restaurants, shop and Post Office as well as the Hook Norton Brewery.

Moreton-in-Marsh, Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water are all close by or take a trip to the riverside town of Banbury, Blenheim Palace or the university city of Oxford.

The birthplace of William Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Warwick with its magnificent castle also make great family days out.

A wonderful cottage for a memorable holiday at any time of year.

About the location

HOOK NORTON

Chipping Norton 5 miles; Stratford-upon-Avon 22 miles; Oxford 25 miles.

A picturesque village with many honey-coloured historic buildings, thatched cottages, a thriving community and its very own steam driven brewery, the last of its kind in the country. The village boasts a well-stocked shop, Post Office, several pubs and restaurants and many lovely walks can be enjoyed from the village with the D'Arcy Dalton Way passing through the village. The market town of Chipping Norton lies south of the village in the Cotswold Hills, plays host to many festivals throughout the year, has an abundance of shops, cafes and restaurants as well as a theatre and the oldest golf course in Oxfordshire. Historic Banbury nestles on the banks of the River Cherwell in the Cherwell Valley and offers many restaurants, cafes, a canalside museum, cinema and local theatre, plus the annual Banbury Folk Festival attracts many visitors each year. Blenheim Place, the ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill is also close by. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and known as ‘The City of Dreaming Spires’ has an abundance of attractions, namely the 38 colleges of the university, the oldest university teaching room, Bodleian Library, Botanic Gardens and museums, as well as playing host to many festivals and markets. Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare, Warwick with its magnificent castle and Royal Leamington Spa make a lovely day out. Enjoy many types of motor and superbike racing at Silverstone or spend a day shopping at Bicester Village Designer Outlet.
