In the heart of the ancient Cotswold village of Shipton-under-Wychwood, you will find our enchanting retreat for six. This 16th century, Grade II listed home has been tastefully renovated to a high standard, with bold and quirky décor beautifully complementing the historic features, offering touches of luxury to every carefully curated corner. For sun-soaked days where alfresco brunches and refreshing aperitifs are at the forefront of the agenda, you will find a heavenly enclosed garden with suntrap spaces, whilst the chillier months are equally as inviting, with an open fire at the heart of the lounge promising cosy fireside moments with your nearest and dearest. For evening tipples and hearty pub grub, The Lamb Inn is 2-minutes by foot and the delightful towns of Burford, Stow-on-the-Wold and postcard pretty villages of Lower and Upper slaughter are just a short drive away. The family favourite Cotswold Wildlife Park is only 12-minutes by car too.
