This charming, Grade II listed cottage is perfectly situated in the heart of the village of Hook Norton.

This charming, Grade II listed cottage dates back to the 17th century and was formerly a sweet shop. Now having been lovingly restored to a good standard, the cottage still retains a wealth of character, with an inglenook fireplace, beams and stone walls but boasting comforts to give you that home from home experience. There is also a games/play room with a games console to keep the younger guests entertained. The property will be decorated for guests staying over the festive period.

Perfectly situated in the heart of the picturesque village of Hook Norton, on the edge of the beautiful Cotswolds, with superb walks right from the doorstep and excellent local amenities, all within walking distance, including a local parish church, library and well-stocked general store. There are two public houses within walking distance, both serving food and where you can sample the locally made beer from Hook Norton Brewery. The Victorian brewery is also a lovely day out for guests with guided tours being offered, free beer samples and a visitors centre. The village is just a short distance from the market town of Chipping Norton where you can explore several antique shops, and a wide selection of coffee shops, restaurants and pubs. A short drive will take you to Blenheim Palace at Woodstock, Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford, known as the ’city of dreaming spires’. There are plenty of opportunities for guests to travel a little further and visit one of the many Cotswold towns such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water or Morton-in-Marsh. The designer outlet village at Bicester is also worth a day out for those guests who enjoy some retail therapy. Shop and pub 500 yards, restaurant 5 miles.

    Great property. Spacious for 6. Well equipped kitchen. Easy to use log burner although there is a very effective central heating system. Walking distance of 3 pubs, a well stocked shop, and an historic brewery. Good walks nearby. Dog friendly.

    The cottage is warm, friendly and very well furnished. We were pleased to find comprehensive instructions for using the cooker and hob, and the owners have assembled a wealth of information about local services and places of interest. We can also highly recommend the village store and post office which has an excellent selection of groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables and is open until 8.00pm.

    An enjoyable stay in excellent accommodation with lots to visit close at hand. Local amenities were also very good. We had an elderly relative who required some medical attention during our visit (nothing serious!) and there is even a clinic in the village itself (very convenient and staff very helpful).
