Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Keen's Cottage is simply delightful!
Set in the 'West End' of this award winning village in the heart of the Cotswolds, the cottage is a classic 18th Century cottage furnished in an attractive and traditional style making it ideal for either families or two couples looking to visit this (popular) area. There are many modern touches mixed with comfortable features that make this a real stand out holiday cottage.
Its location down a little lane and within a traditional terrace of cottages is both peaceful and convenient, particularly for two superb and highly revered pubs which are less than 5 mins walk away.
Internally the property was recently renovated to provide a new conservatory/dining room and new kitchen alongside the stunning inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove. Upstairs are two good sized bedrooms with two bathrooms. Outside there is a completely enclosed, south facing garden.
This is a real gem and an outstanding choice for your Cotswold break or holiday.

Kingham is a beautiful unspoilt Cotswold village with a large open green and some elegant stone and thatch cottages mostly dating from the 17th and 18th centuries. It is situated in the Evenlode valley in Oxfordshire and is a short drive from the more well known town of Chipping Norton. It is a thriving village with a good sense of community and was voted the UK's 'Village of the Year' by Country Life a few years ago. As well as the pubs there is a good village store and an attractive church.
The village is unique amongst Cotswold villages, because it is served by a main line railway station about a mile from the village, the mainline railway station provides regular services to London with services operated by First Great Western Link. Of particular note is the The Kingham Plough which is a quintessential Cotswold Inn and has an outstanding restaurant. According to AA Gill: "The kitchen is a serious restaurant workplace. The bar menu is as fine as any I've seen...anyone thinking of opening a local pub restaurant should come here and see the gold standard." (AA Gill writing in the Sunday Times). Otherwise nearby are Chipping Norton, Stow on the Wold and Burford, with Oxford, Stratford upon Avon and Bath all within a reasonable drive.
