A traditional thatched cottage offering pure rustic romance, this beautiful chocolate-box Cotswold stone cottage is nestled in the quiet village of Whichford, famous for its pottery.
The picture-perfect village of Whichford with its small green and local village inn sits within Warwickshire on the Oxfordshire border. A haven for walkers offering way-marked paths from the village that will guide you through the countryside. The market town of Shipston-on-Stour is within easy reach and offers a great selection of independent shops, restaurants and cafes. Attractions within the area include Shakespeare’s birthplace Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle, Oxford with its dreaming spires and Cheltenham, home of the Gold Cup. There are also many National Trust properties and gardens including Blenheim Palace and Chastleton House, with Brook Cottage Garden, the Bloxham Museum and the Civil War battlefield of Edgehill also well worth a visit. For shoppers, Bicester shopping village is within easy access and offers a great day out.
