A beautifully renovated stone cottage set on the edge of the quiet Oxfordshire village of Swerford, only 4½ miles from Chipping Norton and the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This is the perfect retreat for couples looking for a sightseeing break, all on one level, complete with a wood burner in the living room and underfloor heating throughout. There is also a comfy Hypnos bed in the bedroom, and a bathroom with monsoon shower. To complete the picture, there is a hot tub, a herb and vegetable garden that guests are welcome to use, and a gas BBQ. The Old Stables is set on the discreet owners’ farm which is strictly a no smoking environment, both in the property and outside on the farm. Here you will see alpacas, goats, donkeys, sheep and chickens. There is also an arts and craft studio on-site where you can book private workshops direct with the owner.
The village of Swerford is ideal for walkers and cyclists with many pathways running through it, and it boasts a beautiful church and a site of an old motte and bailey which is believed to pre-date the church. The next door village of Hook Norton has a great village shop and is the home to Hook Norton Brewery where you can take a tour, sample the local beer and take some souvenirs home. Just a short drive is the town of Chipping Norton with many independent shops, pubs and restaurants. The Old Stables is a great base to explore more of the Cotswolds towns and villages including Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Campden, Bourton-on-the-Water, Moreton-in-Marsh, Great Tew, The Slaughters, The Rollrights and Woodstock where you will find Blenheim Palace. The historic university city of Oxford is 27 miles away, the outlet shopping village of Bicester is 18 miles, the market town of Banbury is 9 miles and Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon is 24 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
