Description

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.

    We went to celebrate my birthday with family. Had a great time. The cottage is lovely. Plenty of space and decorated to a good standard. Love the hearts every where 😊. We were left a bottle of bubbly and a cake which was a nice touch. We ate at The Sun Inn Saturday evening and the food and service was A+. We would definitely recommend the cottage.

    The cottage was comfortable and clean. We had a pleasant time. It was a lovely surprise to get a fruitcake and drinks upon our arrival. Much appreciated. I would suggest providing a small milk also as guests can make nice cups of tea as soon as they arrive. In one of the bathrooms, there was only 1/2 used up roll provided. Otherwise, the bed was comfy, the rooms were nice and warm. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you Jo.

    Extremely well equipped. Busy main road is the reason I scored less on location, although well situated in terms of where we wanted to go.

    Lovely cottage perfect for a family get together over a weekend. Only downside was on road parking only. Warm, comfortable, well fitted and a welcome pack to greet us on our arrival. Will certainly book again if I need somewhere to stay in the area.

    We had a wonderful time at The Old Sweet Shop. It was a bit of a flying visit but everything was setup to make it as simple as possible to relax and enjoy ourselves. A delicious welcome package, and a well equipped kitchen were ideal. We enjoyed a circular walk that took in the also brilliant Norman Knight pub for lunch and a trip to the nearby brewery. A great trip and host, we would definitely go back.

    A perfect venue for our old girls get together. Lovely cosy cottage and the owner went out of her way to make it welcoming and was very helpful. Highly recommended.

    Beautiful cottage. We wondered if it would be a bit chilly with it being an older building but it was super cosy-only downside was we didn't end up getting to use the gorgeous fire. Really well stocked with everything you could need. Loved every minute.
