Holiday Rental House
Lovell Cottage is on a quiet country lane in the historic village of Old Minster Lovell, just a short drive from the main Cotswold arterial road (the A40) yet feeling like a million miles away from anywhere but the peaceful surroundings of this archetypal Oxfordshire village with its Cotswold stone houses and thatched cottages. To the rear of the cottage is a typical English country garden, mostly laid to lawn, with planted borders and mature trees. A patio area with seating for 6 and a BBQ sits to one side of the garden. A path leads from the garden, past the kitchen door to a gate which opens to the parking area and front of the cottage. The garden, which is private and not overlooked, looks out over a large neighbouring garden and paddock (not for guests' use).

To the rear of the cottage is a typical English country garden, mostly laid to lawn, with planted borders and mature trees. A patio area with seating for 6 and a BBQ sits to one side of the garden. A path leads from the garden, past the kitchen door to a gate which opens to the parking area and front of the cottage. The garden, which is private and not overlooked, looks out over a large neighbouring garden and paddock (not for guests' use). Outside the cottage looks typically olde-worlde Cotswold, with a wisteria climbing across the front, but inside the owner has combined the original features with super-stylish contemporary furnishing and décor. Downstairs, at the front of the cottage, is a gorgeous living room and snug, sharing a double-sided wood burner. To the rear, up an original stone step, is a very well-equipped kitchen with a large dining table to comfortably sit 6 guests, a downstairs shower room and a double bedroom. Upstairs are two large double bedrooms, one with a super-king size bed the other a king-size bed, sharing a splendid Jack and Jill shower room. Lovell Cottage lies in Old Minster Lovell, the historic section of the beautiful village of Minster Lovell on the edge of Wychwood National Nature Reserve. The village has a church, pub, a country hotel with a spa, a village cricket club and fishing on the River Windrush. Head out the front door for fantastic local walks, including to the ruins of Minster Lovell Hall, a 15th century Oxfordshire manor house, which sits in a beautiful rural setting beside the river. Nearby Witney is a vibrant market town with excellent amenities and a thriving local community with a wide range of independent shops, restaurants and boutiques, as well as a cinema and larger stores including Waitrose and M&S. Cleaning Protocol: Every owner of a property listed with Bolthole Retreats has undertaken to implement a series of additional cleaning measures in order to minimise the risk of infection between stays. Housekeepers have been instructed to follow a 30-point guide which involves cleaning first to remove germs and other impurities, and then disinfecting to kills germs with chemicals while wearing disposable gloves and facemasks. All laundry will be washed using a bleach or other disinfectant-based laundry detergent containing active oxygen bleach at a temperature of at least 60 degrees. At least one pot of hand sanitiser, and for the larger properties 2 or 3 pots, will be provided. Implementing these measures will necessarily result in an increase in the time taken to undertake a clean. Therefore, we ask that guests respect the advertised check-in and check-out times, and we will regrettably be unable to agree to any exceptions. Full Property Description Ground Floor Living Room The front door opens into the cottage's stunning living room with original features, including a beamed ceiling and flagstone floor, complemented by a double sided woodburner, shared with the Snug, pale grey walls and beautifully lit feature alcove. The Living Room has a plush three-seater pin-back sofa, a large footstool, an armchair and inviting snuggler to curl up on. Snug Sitting at the foot of the stairs to Bedroom 1 and 2 the Snug shares the double sided woodburner with the Living Room. This cosy room, with its original beams (mind your head!) has a large 43” smart TV with plenty of seating for all to sit and view, including on an inviting three-seater dusty pink velvet sofa, a midnight blue chaise longue and a fabulous Ercol bench. A window seat with a comfy cushion provides the perfect place to perch and watch life go by. Kitchen At the rear of the cottage is the striking Kitchen, with its milky-midnight blue units standing out against the backdrop of the cottage's pretty rear garden. The beautifully crafted marble work tops provide plenty of space to create a meal or have a private chef get to work. The kitchen is fully equipped with every appliance needed, from dishwasher to Rangemaster oven, wine fridge to Nespresso machine. At the centre is a long rectangular table, comfortably seating six guests. (On arrival, guests first enter the cottage through the side garden that leads to the back door into the Kitchen.) Downstairs Shower Room Approached from the Snug, up one step, or from the Kitchen, the family shower room features a beautiful wall with raw limestone tiles and a large walk-in shower, with polished limestone walls, a dual-flush WC and wash basin. Bedroom 3 The cottage's downstairs bedroom features a double bed on an unusual chrome bedstead, which sits up against a backdrop of pretty bamboo and parakeet wallpaper. The bedroom has twMore
