Hidden away in a picturesque Cotswold village is this intimate honey-hued retreat. With its idyllic location, The Skirret is perfect for those looking to slow down, recharge and enjoy some of the most beautiful countryside Oxfordshire has to offer. Step into this enchanting home, bask in the divine rustic-chic interiors and indulge yourself in a romantic getaway with that special someone.

Upon entering the hallway, make your way to the angelic kitchen; a symphony of delicate, light wood panelling blended with a melange of rich shades of charcoal. Well appointed and with everything any aspiring chef could need, this kitchen boasts a big range cooker with double oven, grill and ceramic hob - ideal for whipping up something delectable during your stay. Create the perfect coffee with the Kitchenaid Nespresso Machine, play your favourite tunes on the Ruark Radio, take a pew at the pretty and practical island and treat yourself to a long, lazy morning.


Through the kitchen, you will find the exquisite living area with its striking midnight green ceilings and exposed Cotswold stone walls. The epitome of countryside chic, this gorgeous space was made for relaxing and is bursting with characterful, vintage trinkets and furnishings which makes this retreat a real home from home. Sink into the large walnut leather sofa, put your feet up and listen to the crackle of the bijoux grey woodburner. Peruse through the detailed collection of walking guides to plan your adventure in the Cotswolds or on a rainy day, curl up and watch your favourite film or whip out the old board games and enjoy some quality time together.


Bright and airy, the master bedroom is so calm and peaceful; home to a deliciously large king size bed, crisp white French linen and sublime designer throws and scatter cushions. The high ceilings and skylight make this room the perfect spot for stargazing, whilst the nature-themed decor remains in keeping with the beautiful setting of this retreat.

For flexible sleeping arrangements, there is also an alluring single room filled with calming hues of green and grey and with plenty of storage space for luggage overspill.


This retreat has a charming shower room with toasty underfloor heated tiles. Treat yourself to a long soak under the blissful rainfall shower with the sun shining through skylight window above. The tall ebony radiator ensures your towels are warm and fluffy.

Lay back with a glass of bubbles on the Adirondack loungers, have a go at creating your own pizzas on the Uuni Pizza Oven or just tuck into some lunch with the fresh country air. Sporting lush green countryside views, you can enjoy the far reaching views from your own little patch of heaven.

In the Area

You will find The Skirret in the pretty and idyllic village of Nether Westcote, a little slice of tranquillity hidden away from it all in the Cotswolds. This dainty village offers a plethora of local walks along the picturesque lanes and footpaths and are just steps away from the cottage door. Less than a two hour drive from London and yet completely surrounded by enchanting countryside, there are a variety of charming pubs such as the Feathered Nest Pub (only a 2 minute walk away!), prestigious National Trust sites like the world famous Hidcote and positively peaceful gardens such as Burford Garden Centre to discover.

Just a short drive away is the award-winning Daylesford Farm. Treat yourself to the delicious and organic produce here or try something new and take part in one of the many cookery and gardening workshops. Further along is Chipping Camden, a characterful and traditional market town bursting with life and activity. Filled with lovely limestone cottages and with a rich history, there is plenty to enjoy at Chipping Camden from its iconic landmarks like its Market Hall, now in the care of the National Trust, to its independent shops and centuries-old pubs. Of course you have the entirety of the Cotswold and a wealth of beautiful and local walks at your doorstep so grab your wellies and your walking guide and discover the honey-combe homes, thatched properties and rich woodlands and forests.
