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

Please note that prices quoted are based on 4 people, but we offer flexibility to sleep more (see below), such as via optional extra rooms or a sofa bed, which the web site won't take into account. The pet supplement is also an extra. Therefore, if you need any flexibility it's best to contact us before booking via the web site, so we can advise on the effect on price. We can be flexible but normal changeover days are Monday & Friday with a 2 night minimum stay at low & mid season and 3 nights at high season.

The Granary has 2 bedrooms to sleep 4 plus 1 bathroom 4, but it also has a sofa bed which can be set up as an optional extra for a 5th guest. There is an optional, separate but adjacent double en-suite Guest Suite, with a sofa and TV, plus basic limited cooking facilities. The Guest Suite has a sofa bed too, so it can accommodate up to 3.

We have a second cottage next door to the Granary (95457- The Stables) which is useful for large parties, which can sleep up to 10 with sofa beds.

We have parking for 7 cars for both cottages, plus over spill parking if needed. We also have a games room available to our guests, with fitness equipment, table tennis, darts and pool.

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.

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.
