Description from owner


The Old Cow Shed is a beautiful cottage set in 200 acres of private parkland on an estate in Oxfordshire. It offers a very high standard of accommodation, 15 minutes from the world-famous university town of Oxford, and only 5 minutes from the shopping mecca of Bicester Village. The nearby Cotswolds are famous for their idyllic English countryside. For foodies there are great gastro pubs with locally-sourced ingredients. Free wifi, pet friendly, easy access from Heathrow, and a warm welcome.

The Old Cow Shed (yes there really were once happy cows wintering in this cottage, though they are now discouraged from returning home) is situated on a private estate and working farm in Oxfordshire. The nearest village is Chesterton, about a mile away.

Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds are famous for walks, cycle and horse rides and its idyllic English countryside and villages.

The Old Cow Shed has a spacious open-plan kitchen and dining area with a table suitable for up to six people. The kitchen has all the modern amenities of fridge/freezer, dishwasher, hob, oven and microwave, and washing machine and dryer.

Along the hallway, there is a large sitting room with big comfortable

sofas, a gorgeous wood burning stove, a widescreen TV, free wi-fi and plenty of books and maps and local information to get your teeth into.

The cottage has three bedrooms: one king size; one twin room with two singles; and a further single room. There is also a large family bathroom. There are private gardens at the front and rear of the property, with a lovely outside seating area at the rear for al fresco summer lunches.
