Boxtree Cottage is a very peaceful property, set back from a quiet lane, in the small Cotswolds village of Hidcote Boyce. The village is surrounded by beautiful open countryside, with numerous walks right on the doorstep. Despite the tranquil setting, the cottage is only two miles from the historic market town of Chipping Campden, with its many restaurants, shops and beautiful buildings, and less than 10 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. The cottage is also approximately one mile away from both the Ebrington Arms and The Three Ways House Hotel (home of the famous Pudding Club), two of the best places to eat in the North Cotswolds.

Dating from the 18th century, Boxtree Cottage has been beautifully refurbished and retains many character features, including a large stone fireplace with wood-burning stove, flag stone floors and ledge and brace doors. Complementing these period features, the house has modern facilities, including wireless internet access, TVs in most rooms and a beautiful kitchen. The cottage also has an enclosed garden, at the front of the house. The layout of the property makes Boxtree Cottage an ideal retreat for a couple, or a small family.

The cottage sleeps up to three people, in a double room and a single room. There is a family bathroom.

Accessibility, health and safety:

Boxtree Cottage is a very old property and has many character features, including narrow and steep stairs, low beams and multiple floors, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency. Guests should also be aware that there is only a small landing space between the door to bedroom 1 and the top of the stairs down to the kitchen.

The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.


No smoking is permitted throughout Boxtree Cottage.

The Cotswolds region

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England". The name Cotswold means "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides”.

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Cotswold towns include Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud and Winchcombe. The town of Chipping Campden is notable for being the home of the Arts and Crafts movement, founded by William Morris at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. William Morris lived occasionally in Broadway Tower, a folly, now part of a country park. Chipping Campden is also known for the annual Cotswold Olimpick Games, a celebration of sports and games dating back to the early 17th century.

The Cotswolds is the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales. Whilst the beauty of the Cotswold AONB is intertwined with the villages that seem to almost grow out of the landscape, the Cotswolds were primarily designated as an AONB for the rare limestone grassland habitats as well as the old growth beech woodlands that typify the area. These habitat areas are also the last refuge for many other flora and fauna with some so endangered they are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. The uniqueness and value of the Cotswolds is engendered in the fact that five European Special Areas of Conservation, three National Nature Reserves and over 80 Sites of Special Scientific Interest are contained within the Cotswold AONB.

Chipping Campden

Boxtree Cottage is located approximately one mile away from two well-regarded food and drink establishments:

- The Ebrington Arms, Ebrington: A traditional 17th century Cotswold inn that radiates charm and character, with quaint yet stylish decor, open log fires, Cotswold stone walls and a warm welcome from the owners and locals. Winner of the CAMRA North Cotswold Pub of the Year for three consecutive years, foodies flock from far and wide to sample the fare from the kitchen.

- The Three Ways House Restaurant, Mickleton: Home to the world famous Pudding Club, which was founded in 1985 to prevent the demise of the traditional great British Pudding. The award winning restaurant is open every evening to non-residents and offers a weekly changing menu utilising fresh, seasonal produce, sourced from in and around Chipping Campden and Gloucestershire, wherever possible. The restaurant is also open every Sunday lunchtime and always features a buffet of Pudding Club puddings.

There are many excellent places to eat and drink in the wider North Cotswolds area, with the major towns of Chipping Campden, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, Moreton-in-Marsh, Broadway, Burford and Chipping Norton containing a wide variety of tea shops, pubs and restaurants, catering for most tastes and budgets. There are also many traditional Cotswold pubs located in the lovely villages throughout the North Cotswolds.


The list below is a very small sample to give you a flavour for the wide range of attractions and activities that are available in and around the Cotswolds . Tourist Information centres are located in all the main North Cotswold towns.

- Blenheim Palace

- Warwick Castle

- Stratford-upon-Avon

- Hidcote

- Cheltenham race course

- Cotswold Farm Park

- Batsford Arboretum

- Broadway Tower Country Park

- Snowshill Manor & Garden

Activities available in the Cotswolds include walking, cycling, horse riding, golf, swimming and rock climbing. There are also a number of spas located in beautiful surroundings.

Further food & drink and activities information is available on the Character Cottages website.
