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.

    We had a lovely week at The Plough in April 2019, and used it as a base to visit Cotswold towns as well as Oxford, Blenheim Palace and Cheltenham. The cottage is cosy and well equipped, with excellent wi-fi, and the local pubs are welcoming, especially to males wishing to watch the football! There's plenty of hot water and a useful utility room / cellar to store boots / shoes etc. There is a washing machine and there were plenty of toiletries and towels provided. Communication with the owners beforehand about arrival details was very easy and prompt. We would happily return!

    Comfortable cottage an a lovely village. Despite variable weather we made the most of our weekend and the cottage was warm and cosy. Comfortable beds and although we didn't take a dog the downstairs area was dog friendly, with a door at the bottom of the stairs (a notice requesting no dogs upstairs) which meant the bedrooms felt clean. Nice little garden, though not the right weather for us to use it. Pity there's not more choice of places to eat within walking distance, though the coop is well stocked and the Chinese take away was ok, the pub food was average.

    Our second stay in this lovely cosy cottage. Really well equipped, clean and comfortable, with a very pretty garden, it's ideal for a family holiday. The village location adds to the charm and is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area. We loved it, and hope to visit again.

    A really lovely cottage in a beautiful village. The cottage itself was so comfortable and great layout. The village had lovely pubs & a shop just down the road.

    Excellent condition and dog friendly garden. Fully equipped kitchen,milk and cake were a bonus. Highly recommende. Downtown crew were filming by the church. Shame about the housing estate at the back of the village.

    We found this cottage a very good place to meet up with friends and family. It was extremely well equipped, we wanted for nothing. Sofa could be a little uncomfortable but I have known worse. It was much appreciated that the cottage takes dogs and there are many lovely walks from the town centre. The pubs left a little to be desired but the tea rooms next to the Co-Op was very good. We had a super breakfast there.There was no noise or inconvenience from the properties on either side and the one neighbour, Lynn was very pleasant and helpful. We never met any others. Above and beyond with the electronic equipment. There was only myself and husband but would be good for a family or two couples. Will return if visiting the area again.

    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.
