Rickyard Farmhouse is a brilliant holiday home located on the edge of the little hamlet of Foscot - deep in the Cotswolds. The house, which sits on the edge of a working farm, is very much the traditional farmhouse, with Aga in the kitchen, lovely large open fire in the living room and stunning views across the open farmland from almost all rooms. The house is an excellent and practical base for a holiday in this area with Stow on the Wold, Burford and Bourton on the Water (plus many others) all within a short drive. The huge garden which wraps around the house, is heavenly and perfect for 'mucking about' while the summer house provides tranquility and views that are second to none. The real Cotswold experience.

Rickyards Farmhouse is approached via its own Private Gated access off the adjoining lane. The garden is well fenced and hedged. However the owners and Manor Cottages would like to bring to the attention of guests that the house is on the edge of a working farm. The owners have lived in the village for many years and fully control the farm and surrounding land, along with other holiday lets.

Foscot is a small hamlet nestling next to the stunning village of Bledington, itself in the broad valley of the River Evenlode, all very close to the famous Cotswold town of Stow on the Wold. Foscot and Bledington lie on the Oxfordshire Way walk, which will take you up on to the wolds via Wyck Beacon and down to Bourton-on-the-Water, or south-eastwards down the valley to Bruern Abbey and onto Shipton-under-Wychwood. Either way it is one of the delightful walks to be found nearby.

For those thinking 'food' the excellent 'Kings Head' pub is in Bledington and about 10 mins walk away, and for the wine connoisseur there is the Horse and Groom at Oddington, which provides a great welcome along with many others in the surroundign villages. Nearby Kingham (The Mill, The Plough and The Wild Rabbit) also has a first class Village Shop PLUS a train station direct to Oxford and London Paddington. The famed Daylesford Organic Farmshop is a great visit and is just 3 miles away.

The University Town of Oxford, Regency Cheltenham & Stratford upon Avon are all easily accessible days out for Racing, The Theatre,Museums & great Shopping including at Bicester Village Outlet. The Heritage Motor Museum at Gaydon is approximately 50 Minutes away together with the Land Rover Experience & a can make a fun day out.

The Farmhouse is well stocked with all such local information for a successful & relaxing stay.
