Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome

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. 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 cottage is 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 Granary is 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.

Further details indoors

The cottage has a wealth of charm and original features such as exposed stone walls. The cottage has underfloor heating and a light oak floor in communal areas.

The Granary offers a double bedroom and a twin bedroom with a family bathroom with wc and shower, all on the ground floor. The cottage sleeps 4 people in 2 bedrooms, but there is also a single chair bed in the double room for an extra person, enabling the cottage to accommodate a family of 5. Should you also have a baby or small child as a 5th or 6th person, there's a cot with bedding and a highchair in the cottage. The cottage also provides a modern open plan kitchen, dining and living room. The dining table seats 6.

Bedding and towels are provided, including cot bedding. There's a high chair available in the cottage.

The fully fitted modern kitchen has electric cooking facilities, microwave, dishwasher and a washing machine. There is access to a further, larger washing machine and tumble dryer in the games room if required.

There's a dining table to seat 6, which extends to accommodate 8, plus a breakfast bar for 2. The lounge seats 5, but there are extra chairs and a reading chair in the double room.

Guests also have access to a separate games room that features gym equipment, table tennis, darts and a junior pool table, plus an extra washing machine, a tumble dryer and a freezer.

There is also an opportunity to use an additional double bedroom with TV, seating, a small fridge and en-suite facilities. It also has a sofa bed, so it can sleep 3 comfortably. The Guest Suite is only a few yards from the cottage, with its own separate access, so it's great for extended family. This additional accommodation is available for a further 50% of the applicable weekly/ daily rate or a minimum of £40 per night. This then allows the Granary to sleep 9 persons in total taking account of the sofa beds and cot. We suggest however, that this would only work for short stays, due to limited space in the main lounge/ dining room for very large parties.

Further details outdoors

The Granary is surrounded by the Oxfordshire countryside and is set back, well away from the main road. There are spaces for 7 cars between our 2 cottages, which is perfect for extended families and rare.

There's a small fully enclosed and secure garden, which is shared between the cottages and is great for small children or pets. There is also an adjacent much larger garden area, where guests can sit and enjoy the views over the beautiful Cotswold countryside.

Washing lines are provided in the enclosed garden.

Further details

The Granary can be booked for full weeks (Friday to Friday or Monday to Monday), part weeks (Monday to Friday) or week ends (Friday to Monday). We are flexible on dates where possible and quite often offer a Saturday to Saturday or Sunday to Friday or 2 night weekends.

Prices are based on 4 in 2 bedrooms. Extra persons are pro-rata.

February and October half terms are mid season. May half term is high season.

Pets and children are very welcome. The pet supplement is £30.

If any of your party has disabilities, please advise, so we can assess suitability. We have ground floor facilities and wide access doors, but our properties are not fully compliant with wheelchair regulations. Suitability depends on personal circumstances.

An additional separate double en-suite room with a sofa bed, is available which allows The Granary to sleep up to 6 persons or 8 using the sofa beds in the Granary and in the Guest Suite, plus a baby in the cot, bringing the total to 9. Once again, we suggest however, that this would only work for short stays, due to limited space in the main lounge/ dining room for very large parties.

We also have a second cottage which sleeps another 6-8 plus baby- see property 95457, The Stables. The cottages are therefore great for a large gathering, with families able spend time together, but also enjoy separate facilities.

The Cotswolds region

The Cotswolds is one of the most beautiful parts of England with its green and rolling countryside and the charming stone cottages and pubs. It is a haven for walkers, cyclists, and those who just wish to relax in a charming country pub or restaurant.

The historic cities of Oxford and Cheltenham are within easy reach, as are some of the most beautiful villages in England. Burford, Bibury, Broadway and the Barringtons are all worth visiting to experience the charm and tranquillity of the Cotswolds.


Burford with its historic and famous High Street is one of the "must visit" places in the Cotswolds with its impressive Church and quaint shops, restaurants and pubs. Other villages worth visiting include Alvescot, Shilton, Swinbrook, Chipping Norton, Clanfield and Lechlade.

There are spectacular landscapes for artists and on wet days an outbuilding is available for indoor painting.

Burford, Witney Lakes and Lyneham Golf Courses are all within easy reach and there are other leisure facilities at Carterton, Chipping Norton and Witney.

The world famous Cotswold Wildlife Park is a five minute drive away and the Cogges Farm museum is a twenty minute drive.

Blenhiem Palace and the village of Woodstock is a twenty minute drive away.

The Granary is exceptionally clean and well kept, in a quiet location. Very comfortable with quality fittings and the best array of kitchen crockery/utensils I've come across! Thoughtfully provided with basics in kitchen and soap and loo paper in the bathroom. A great base for a break in the Cotswolds, with lots of lovely walks nearby. Very accommodating owners, we hope to return again one day :)

Thank you for your kind words. It's important to us that our guests have a good time. We would be delighted if you and your family made a return visit.

This was my second stay at the Granary, and I will stay there again. It has everything you need to be comfortable. Its surrounded by peace and quiet,beautiful views with horses grazing outside your gate. If you enjoy beautiful walks or just laying around for a break this is the place to go.

Thank you for your kind words- we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
