Welcome to Foxcote, our gorgeously romantic and relaxing getaway for couples nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds, close to the picturesque market town of Stow-on-the-Wold. Step inside this charming Cotswold stone cottage and you'll discover a welcoming, open-plan living space, an airy bedroom with shower room, and a stunning garden with its own Garden House. Transformed by its interior designer owner, Foxcote is a delightful modern country home from home that offers exquisite décor yet still retains a warm, inviting atmosphere - and dogs are most welcome too. Fantastically positioned to make access to the Cotswolds a doddle, there's a vast number of places to visit within a short distance of Foxcote, from the pleasures of Daylesford Organic and the plethora of fabulous eateries, to the numerous stately homes such as Sezincote. Or simply explore the maze of bridleways and pathways that weave through the countryside - the ideal way to spend a week or short break.


Living and eating

Foxcote's open-plan living space incorporates the sitting room, kitchen, and dining room. With oak wooden flooring throughout, gently heated with underfloor heating, this is a warm, bright space with a modern country feel, with beautiful artwork displayed throughout.

The sitting area has a beautifully large squishy linen sofa and chaise from Loaf, oh-so-comfy and the perfect spot for curling up together after a busy day's exploring, whether to watch a movie or simply read and watch the flickering of the wood burner. There's a television, plus a SONOS speaker to create the soundtrack to your holiday. For non-digital entertainment, there are lots of games to be found in the TV cabinet, and plenty of books too.

Step through the wooden archway into the beautiful country kitchen, a joy with cream cupboards and wooden worktops. Complete with Neff gas hob and electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge plus the all-important Nespresso coffee machine and milk frother, you have everything to hand to create feasts for your loved one. There's also a useful central island for prepping meals - head to nearby Daylesford for some tasty local produce! In addition, the washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer can be found in the laundry room.

For dining, there's a lovely dining table and chairs, set next to the French windows that lead out into the garden - great for warmer days, where you can dine with the soft country air and the sound of the birds as your companions.


Sleeping

The double-height bedroom is just a dream, where the king-sized, upholstered bed awaits, swathed in cloud-soft bedding, luxurious linens and sumptuous cushions and throws - just what's needed to send you off into a blissful nights' sleep in this airy room. As well as a window overlooking the garden, there are French doors that lead out on to a tucked away patio, the perfect spot for morning coffee and breakfast. For storage, there's a large chest of drawers, a clothes rail, and a cloakroom just outside the bedroom.


Bathing

Next to the bedroom lies the shower room, complete with a huge, walk-in shower with rainfall shower head and separate hand-held shower. We just love the exposed Cotswold stone wall, and travertine tiles - such a beautiful room! In addition, there's underfloor heating and a heated rail to keep towels warm and fluffy.


Outdoor space

The idyllic, large country garden is lovely, with several seating areas in which to relax. Professionally landscaped, there is a sunny lounge area on the terrace just in front of the dining room, complete with seating and a table. Another outside dining space, together with a gas BBQ, can be found next to the oak garage. Both areas have a parasol for some shade in the hotter months.

Along with a lawned space, beautifully manicured shrub borders and a gravelled area, there's a wonderful Garden House, complete with a little table and reading light as well as a day bed - great for sun downers or just to read a book and relax!


Parking

There is private, off-road parking available at Foxcote, plus a garage for a smaller car.


Babies and children

Babies are most welcome at Foxcote. A travel cot, highchair and children's cutlery and crockery are provided.


Dogs

Foxcote welcomes one well-behaved dog. We charge £35 per dog per week or short break. The garden is secure for your dog to play in.


In the Area

Set within the pretty Cotswold village of Lower Oddington, close to Stow-on-the-Wold, Foxcote is perfectly situated to explore the very best of this stunning area, with two pubs just a short walk away. You're just around the corner from Daylesford Organic, which alongside a wonderful farm shop has an excellent restaurant and shops, as well as being offering courses, from flower arranging to yoga. There's a host of places to visit, from Jacobean Chastleton House, beautiful Sezincote with its lovely gardens, Batsford Arboretum with 56 acres of incredible trees and the ancient stone circle of The Rollright Stones. With so many beautiful villages and towns to explore, a simple drive around the Cotswolds will uncover such gems as Bourton-on-the-Water (known as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds'), Moreton-in-Marsh, Broadway and Burford. Head to historic Cirencester for fabulous shops, the Corinium Museum and a wonderful farmer's market. Broadway Tower is well worth a visit for fantastic views, whilst Stow-on-the-Wold, just around the corner from Foxcote, is a fantastic market town with a rich history dating back to Roman times - it also has some fantastic places to eat, including The Old Butchers - a firm favourite with the owners of Foxcote! Walkers will just love heading out on the numerous path and bridleways in the area, whether traversing hilltops or fields, woodlands, or riverside trails. Of course, The Cotswold Way is a lovely way to see the countryside, running for 102 miles all the way from Chipping Campden to Bath - although you might only want to walk a bit of it!


We're super-proud to welcome you to this illustrious beauty, a gorgeous couples' escape set within the heartland of the Cotswolds, an idyllic retreat in which to do as much or as little as you want - and it's dog-friendly too.
