Yet it is within easy reach of plenty of interesting towns, such as Burford, Woodstock, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold, enabling you to enjoy a fantastic Cotswold holiday.

Available for our guests to use is a heated outdoor swimming pool. Beautifully warm and sheltered, our enclosed pool is a very short walk from the cottage (opening dates at our discretion, usually May - September). New from 2015, Stone Farm also has its very own tennis court which guests can use at any time. These two features in particular make Stone Farm a great place for all the family to enjoy the perfect holiday.

Children will love exploring the surrounding countryside - there is plenty of space for them to roam around and play (highchair, stair gate and travel cot available free of charge). Dogs - who are very welcome - will love the abundance of walks just outside your door - Stone Farm is located on both the Shakespeare and Wychwood Way (£20 per dog per booking, max 2). And couples will find this the perfect rural retreat - the peaceful, away from it all location guarantees you a chance to relax and recuperate.

Glymestone Cottage is one of two cottages located at Stone Farm. Whilst it sleeps four, if you have a larger group or wanted to holiday with another family in the same location, our sister cottage - Hoarstone - sleeps a further four people. The cottages are close enough to each other to be able to do so, yet far enough apart to guarantee your privacy.

The accommodation offers: 2 bedrooms, one king and one twin, family bathroom (with power shower, separate bath, heated towel rail), kitchen (with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave) and an open plan sitting room with a cosy wood burning stove (a basket of logs and kindling is provided with further supplies available free of charge), a 32" TV with Blue-ray DVD player, CD with iPod dock as well as books, games and puzzles for guests to enjoy. A selection of children's toys can be provided depending on the ages of the children staying.

French doors open from the sitting room into a small walled garden with barbecue and outdoor seating - perfect for relaxing after a pleasant days sightseeing.

Amenities: ample parking, a secure barn for storing bikes, bed linen, towels, electricity, central heating and FREE wifi. Regret no smoking.

Location description from owner

The England region

The lovely rolling hills of the Cotswolds surround some of the prettiest villages and towns in England, where history and architectural features abound. Historical houses, museums, wonderful gardens, famous restaurants and many family attractions make this a fantastic and fun place to visit at any time of the year.

An extensive network of walks and cycle routes, fishing, riding and golf are just some of the many activities to be enjoyed both locally and further afield.

Lidstone

With so many wonderful, picturesque places to visit, antique shops to browse and tea/coffee shops in which to enjoy a few minutes respite, there is so much to do, one visit is never enough!

The local town of Chipping Norton provides all your essentials: supermarkets, banks, post office, leisure centre and garage, as well as coffee shops, cafes, pubs and independent retailers.

The most visited town in the country - Burford - is just a 20 minute drive away, with its glorious collection of antique shops, cosy pubs, 'country' shops and nic-nac shops, not to mention the infamous Burford Garden Centre!

The larger cities of Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and Cheltenham are all less than an hour away. London can be reached easily in just over an hour – just catch the train from Charlbury station (5 miles away).

A stay at Stone Farm will provide you with the perfect base for travelling to the Cornbury Festival, The Riverside Festival, Wilderness, Bleinham Horse Trials, The Big Feastival and The Heythrop Hunt.

“Wonderful stay in the Cotswolds”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2013

We stayed in Nicky's beautiful cottage for 3 nights and I can honestly say it was one of the nicest holiday cottages we have ever rented! Beautifully decorated, well positioned, super clean, and very friendly owners. Not the largest outdoor space, but with the Cotswolds on your door step, you dont really need a big garden.

“Beautiful, quiet, chic, immaculate, great location cottage.”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2013

A fabulous Easter break for both of us, even though temps at 0 and snow on the ground. It's so easy to get to all the cotswolds villages, and lots of cute things to do in them. Independant stores, and beautiful tea rooms. Villages themselves are just delightful. Like you've stepped back in time. Cottage was so beautiful and clean and snuggley. We made full use of the log fire. Lovely. We found everything we needed was to hand. Nice little touches like blanket throws on both sofas in the longe, an enlarging mirror in the bathroom, shoe rack by door. It's a lovely large cottage and only 2 other properties that are close by. One is another rental cottage and we didn't even see it or the people staying there, and the other is the owners Nick and Nicky, who are close for any questions or problems but otherwise you would never see them due to entry and exit of both properties. Trust me we would never stay with owners next door. Have done it once before and were a little concerned, but no need. Didn't even see N&N until the 2nd day, when we needed them. They are so kind and friendly and will help with anything you need, without being intrusive. We slept great, beds great. Towels fluffly. Cushions in lounge are feather & very comfy as are sofas. 10mins on a straight road is the Red Lion. We have stayed there and eaten there a couple of times before so were delighted to return. Gastro Pub food. Locally sourced, log fires, reasonable prices, great staff, fab wine by the glass. Also COCO is the resident brown lab and loved by all. I know i'm supposed to list any points for improvement but they are so petty. The lane you have to use to get to the property is approx 200mtrs and very bumpy. It's just a track and the terrible weather made it awful, but Nick had done his best to fill in a lot of the holes to make it a little easier. Personally we would of liked liquid soap in the bathroom and not a vanity bar, just for hygenie reasons. Also the bath is very tiny, only good for children really. There were no dishwasher tablets which i'm sure was just an oversight. We just bought some from supermarket. We would also of liked feather pillows. These things would of been inkeeping with the high quality overall of the property. As i said very small things. We have been to the Cotswolds on a couple of occasions and stiill have things to do there and we would DEFINATLEY 100% stay here again. That's high praise indeed as we are so fussy and everything has to be to a high standard and perfect for us. So if you are just trying to decide between 2 /3 /4 different cottages, this is the one to go for. You won't be dissapointed at all. Happy Holidays :-)

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review ladies, we would love to see you again. NEWSFLASH! New tarmac drive being laid on Monday 29th April so no more bumps and potholes - hooray!
