The Granary is a beautiful stone built Cotswold cottage 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.
