For the ideal sightseeing break, this cosy cottage enjoys its own private hot tub to relax in.

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.

    An absolutely stunning holiday! Upon arrival the handover of the keys was pleasant with Jane helpfully showing us around the property and chatting with us. Despite being on a small farm it truly felt as if we were alone in the countryside for the most part which left us able to enjoy the natural splendor and facilities. With shops and eatery's just a short drive away I honestly could not have asked for more from this retreat.

    I simply cannot say enough how much we enjoyed our stay at the Old Stables. Jane and Jonathan were excellent hosts and even greeted us with a home baked cake! The cottage was superbly appointed and had everything we needed, including an excellent hot tub. Set on a working farm and surrounded by animals and nature, we left feeling 100% relaxed. We will definitely be staying here again.

    The old stables is a lovely converted animal shed. It is tastefully furnished and has all the conveniences you would expect and underfloor heating. Jane and Jonathan made us very welcome with a a cake and eggs, from their own chickens, during the week. The hot tub was an added bonus very relaxing after a trip out. This was serviced by Jonathan everyday and was kept in tip top condition throughout the week.
