Ground Floor

Entrance Hall:
This useful entrance hall has an adjacent boot room for hanging coats and keeping your walking boots and equipment.

From the entrance hall you step into the foyer where the stairs lead up to the first floor. A feature stove and bookcase add interest and a set of double doors lead out to the garden at the rear. A small WC is accessed from the foyer.

Utility Room:
A hallway with a small step passes the utility room which houses the washer/dryer and a large sink.

This spacious and bright room is equally split between a kitchen and dining area. Large windows bring the garden view in which can be enjoyed from the dining table which seats six. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, oven and hob, microwave and a coffee machine so you can still enjoy your favourite beverage while away from home.

Living Room:
Gathering around the woodburning stove you can discuss your planned walking routes for the next day, enjoy a good book or watch a blockbuster on the smart TV. Unique artwork fills the walls making this a pleasant space to soak in the silence of this cottage.

First Floor

From the foyer, carpeted stairs lead up to the first-floor landing.

Bedroom One:
This king-size room to the right of the stairs has a bed nestled under the beamed ceiling. Built in storage and antique pieces provide a dressing table, cupboard, and desk. Table lamps to the sides of the bed and around the room provide soft lighting so you can decompress and enjoy the tranquillity.

Shower Room:
The shower room is spacious with a large rainfall shower and vanity unit. Open beams are also a feature here with angled ceilings and a small square window.

Bedroom Two:
To the left of the stairs is the twin room with bedside tables and lamps. An armoire and chest of drawers in a dark wood mirror the beams and provide plenty of storage. The window looks across to the farm next door giving you a glimpse of life in the village of Woodmancote.

From bedroom two, a small step up through a door takes you to the landing with a bookcase.

The final bathroom has a bath with hand-held shower, sink and WC. Separated from the other rooms by doors on the landing, the bathroom is closed with a curtain. Tucked away it is a nice retreat where you can relax in a bubble bath with a glass of champagne.

Bedroom Three:
At the end of the cottage is a double room. The impressive roof has cross beams and you have a view out to the garden. Table lamps provide lighting and the antique furniture and artwork create a homely atmosphere. Open the windows and listen to the birdsong while you read a book before heading out for the day.


This peaceful cottage garden at the rear of the property is bordered by a low stone wall and will bloom with life in the Spring. A wooden furniture set with table, chairs and bench let you dine outside or sit and watch the wildlife. The cottage is hugged by climbing plants giving it a chocolate box appeal. To the front the main door opens onto the road and there is on-street parking available for three cars. Further parking is available on the surrounding village lanes.

The house was wonderful, it felt like a family home. Clean, tidy, and equipped with everything you need. The kitchen is beautiful, and the garden is nice and cosy and there is plenty of space in the house. Alex the owner was kind and helpful. We will definitely be back.

We all were in agreement that the cottage was just delightful! Absolutely spotless with huge bedrooms, gorgeous bathrooms, and the communal areas were great. The kitchen in particular had such great amenities. Beautiful garden and in a very quiet area. I could go on. We loved our stay and will 100% be back!
