Lodge Cottage is a Seventeenth Century Cottage oozing classic period charm and very much in the midst of the Cotswolds' heart. The cottage which is attached to the owner's home (but barely noticeable) is a quintessential English home, with mullioned windows giving village views, big, well proportioned rooms throughout and stylish furnishings make it ideal for families and friends alike. The owners, in fact, provide a welcoming 'meet and greet' ensuring that your Cotswolds' experience kicks off on the right foot listing all the best places to find grub and the local walks to get that appetite! Within the cottage there are a host of attractive features as well as the normal nitty gritty (oak flooring downstairs, carpets upstairs, well equipped kitchen, log burning fire) which give this cottage a real appeal. The cottage has it's own, enclosed garden, but also enjoys access to a tennis court plus the stunning gardens cared for by the owners. You'll be impressed - we always are when we visit them!

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. 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).
More recently Daylesford have opened up a new pub The Wild Rabbit which is reputedly as good as it gets.! It's about 4 mins from your cottage door!
Otherwise nearby are Chipping Norton, Stow on the Wold and Burford, with Oxford, Stratford upon Avon and Bath all within a reasonable drive.
