You are viewing the Stables and that sleeps 6-8. Just to outline our accommodation, we have 2 cottages- the Stables is a 3 bed cottage with an optional en-suite 4th bedroom by opening up access to the Hayloft (see below) via the staircase area, which can be locked off or interconnecting. The Granary is a 2 bed cottage. Both cottages have open plan kitchen/ lounge and dining areas. Bedding & towels are included & the kitchens are fully equipped. We also have 2 one bed suites, with kitchenettes- the Saddlery is a double has a lounge area and a wet room and is wheelchair friendly and the king sized Hayloft has a shower room and small sofa and TV area in the kitchenette. There is an optional twin with the Saddlery, but also the Saddlery and Hayloft can be locked off or interconnected via a staircase. There is a cot and high chair in each cottage and a travel cot available for the suites on request. All units have access to our games room (with fitness equipment, table tennis, darts and pool) and we have parking for 7 cars, but we can provide over-spill parking if needed. We can sleep 14 as standard in the 2 cottages and 2 suites. Also, in total there are 5 sofa beds (2 in the Stables, 1 in the Granary, 1 in the Saddlery and 1 in the Hayloft), plus we have an extra twin room accessed from the Saddlery if more accommodation is needed. Therefore, we can accommodate an extra 7 when needed. We can offer anything from a suite for 2 people up to a combination of cottages and suites to sleep 21, which is great for extended family or friend group gatherings, who want to meet up, but with individual family units to having their own space. The accommodation is constructed from beautiful Cotswold stone dating back to the 1790s and is surrounded by fields and the stunning Oxfordshire countryside. It is ideally situated as a base for exploring the Cotswold region and is convenient for visiting both Oxford and Cheltenham. The historic town of Burford is less than a 10 minute drive away and the beautiful villages of Alvescot and Shilton are only a mile away. Both these villages have terrific pubs which can be reached by public footpaths and bridleways. The Cotswolds is a fantastic region for a great holiday, with plenty of historic places to visit and beautiful villages and countryside. Oxford's architecture is stunning and definitely worth seeing. The cottage is in open countryside, but still 5 minutes from local amenities. The cottages are 5 minutes from the fabulous Cotswolds Wildlife Park. The animals are housed in the extensive grounds of an old manor house. The variety of animals is impressive and the gardens are stunning. There is a great play area and cafe. There are great opportunities for walkers and cyclists, both locally and throughout the region. The cottage is close to Burford, Witney Lakes and Lynham Golf Courses and there are a number of horse riding stables in the region. There are spectacular landscapes and wildlife for artists and photographers. The cottages are within easy reach of the superb shopping centres of Oxford, Cheltenham and the Bicester Retail Village. Witney is local too and it has a great new centre with shops, restaurants and a cinema. More
