  • “This is a lovely little cottage, ideal for two people.”

    The standard of equipment and furnishings is very high and the cottage was immaculate when we arrived.

    The standard of equipment and furnishings is very high and the cottage was immaculate when we arrived. This area of North Oxfordshire is so lovely that we only made it into the true Cotswolds once. It was a bonus to be able to take the bus from outside our door and to be in the centre of Oxford in an hour.

When you want to explore your charming village setting, head down the winding lane that the property is located on and you'll reach a babbling brook, as well as a pretty church, while ample walking opportunities are available around the village, including through the nature reserve of Adderbury Lakes and the many local bridleways & canal paths.

There is a good village store for essentials and four pubs (three of which serve food) and specialise in real ales all within walking distance.

Just three miles north brings you to the bustling market town of Banbury, with a host of cultural attractions to enjoy, including the medieval Broughton Castle, Banbury Museum Trust and the grade I listed St Mary's Church.

Be sure to visit the stately home of Upton House and Garden, which boasts 1930s period displays, stunning sunlit terraces, walking trails and an antique bookstore, while the National Herb Centre is fascinating for wildlife lovers, with culinary, medicinal and heirloom herbs, fruit trees, shrubs and planters.
