Located in the Cotswolds village of Swerford, close to Banbury and Chipping Norton, there is no shortage of walks and cycle trails to investigate. The Cotswolds is a large Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close the border with Wales that is so large that it reaches into six different counties. The main cities and towns in the area are Oxford, Worcester, Cheltenham, Tewkesbury, Bicester, Banbury, and Stratford-upon-Avon. Major visitor attractions in the wider region include Blenheim Palace, Cheltenham Races, Hidcote Manor, Chipping Campden, and the Shakespeare mad Stratford-upon-Avon.  Travel to the highest point in the Cotswolds, Cleeve Hill near Cheltenham, for a grand day out with views.

On arrival at the property, you will find yourself in the lounge, complete with wood burner, underfloor heating and ample seating to relax on and catch up with a spot of reading or TV which has Sky Plus. Nearby is a light, study for those that need to catch up on a bit of work, or spend some time on their novel! There is a desk and appropriate seating. The kitchen comes well-equipped with an oven and hob, toaster, fridge/freezer, wine fridge, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. There is also generous amount of worktop space to prepare family banquets on. There is also a BBQ in the garden too! There is a WC for convenience on the ground floor adjacent to the study. The sun room which benefits from underfloor heating, is a great place to escape to, to enjoy the views and or catch up on some reading with a cup of coffee. Upstairs there are three bedrooms; a master bedroom with oak floorboards – it also has an en-suite shower room with WC, a second double bedroom, and twin room that is ideal for kids – look out for a bag of toys and books in there. The main bathroom is also close by.

On stepping outside, the back garden is enclosed with a stone wall and the lawn bordered by plants and bushes. There is some garden furniture and BBQ to make the most of the good weather on a patio to the right of the sun room.  The front of the property opens out directly on the country lane. There is unallocated on-street parking available.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.
