Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Ideal for exploring the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the city of Oxford with its fascinating historic buildings.

Formerly a public house in the village of Bampton in the Thames valley in Oxfordshire, this comfortable three bedroomed terraced cottage, with a beautiful garden, is ideally set 500 yards from the village centre. Bampton has become famous as the filming village location of Downton Abbey, and you can certainly enjoy modern village life as it features four pubs, a café, a convenience store, an art gallery, library, post office, butchers and pharmacy. The village famously boasts three Morris dancing teams which can be seen during the summer, their main event taking place on the Spring Bank Holiday weekend where you can also enjoy other traditional events including the great original annual shirt race, May garlands and the Flower Festival. From Bampton you can easily reach the River Thames just 2½ miles away and with footpath walks and cycling available, also the Cotswolds with Burford, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and Chipping Norton within half an hour’s drive. Carp and trout fishing is available just 8 miles away. Witney, with a larger range of shops, is 5½ miles and the University city of Oxford, where you can explore the historic buildings, go punting on the river, eat and shop in the many independent and high street cafés, restaurants and stores is 18 miles. If it’s shopping you’re after, you can take a trip to Swindon or Bicester where you will find many bargains at the outlet shopping villages. For nature lovers, the Chimney Meadow Nature Reserve is located just over 2 miles away, where you will discover many different species of birds. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    Delightful property in a small picturesque village. It was well appointed. One small point. The bed was not very comfortable and the sheets scarcely covered the mattress. Apart from that it was very pleasant to stay in. We even had fresh figs from the garden. Would definitely recommend.

    A real gem of a find! A really gorgeous cottage that was ideal for a weekend away with friends. Great space for eating and relaxing together in a beautiful village location - we loved spotting all the sights from Downton Abbey. The house was really well prepared and stocked for our arrival and was spotlessly clean. Am definitely going to recommend to friends and family.

    This cottage had everything you needed. We took things like tea towels and dishcloths as when we have stayed at other places these were not provided. This cottage had lots of little extras which were milk in the fridge, cakes and some sweets for our granddaughter. Also there were toiletries left in each bedrooms. The garden was lovely for our little one and had everything you needed to eat outdoors. The village was beautiful with a fabulous bakery and butchers. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are hoping to return next year but for a week next time.

    We had a great week at The Plough - very comfortable cottage with a lovely garden. There's an excellent butchers in the village, a small coop and some shops to have a rummage in. Lots of walks all around the cottage too, we didn't move the car once we were there! There are places to eat out too, a couple of small cafes, the garden centre cafe and a pub or two in case you don't want to cook. It would be nice to visit again sometime....
