2BR Cottage Vacation Rental in Witney, Oxfordshire

Vacation Rentals

Updated on Oct 10, 2019

Idyllic cottage 12 miles Oxford, 5 minutes Blenheim, Cotswolds. Pet friendly.

Located in: Witney
Beautiful stone built barn conversion renovated from the old bakery and wash building which is situated near to the farmhouse dating back to the 18th century which is pet friendly and fully accessible.

****STOP PRESS****: Once again The Old Bakehouse has gained 4 stars in its latest inspection by Visit England with 100% for cleanliness and 5 *****.

The farm is very tranquil and peaceful and is to be found at the end of a long private 600 yard drive, with horses, cattle and sheep grazing either side on the gently rolling hills that lead down to the stream and wetland in the valley beyond, a haven for barn owls, red shank, woodpeckers and other interesting birds.

There is unlimited free fast wifi, oil fired central heating throughout and plenty of hot water with back up electric heaters.

Features include traditional kitchen with magnificent original bread oven and copper, lots of character including massive beams and Cotswold stone walls.

The cottage is situated on the outskirts of North Leigh, a small village which is very close to Witney, the local market town, which has all the amenities you require, including several banks, supermarkets, sports centre and several good pubs/restaurants. Blenheim Palace is very close (about 5 minutes by car) as is Oxford, The Cotswolds, Rousham, Cotswold Wildlife Park, Cogges Manor Farm museum and Kelmscott. The cottage is very close to Long Hanborough train station that has regular half hour services running to Paddington, London.

The accommodation comprises: Two downstairs ensuite bedrooms, one double and one twin, one with a wet room and the other with a shower enclosure, both with electrically heated towel rails plus thermastatically controlled radiators.

Also on the ground floor there is a fully fitted kitchen with two fridges/freezer, oven, hob with extractor fan over, with good lighting over the work surface. Washing machine and full sized dishwasher. Excellent quality pans and equipment and more than enough cutlery and crockery for 8 persons. From the kitchen there is the conservatory that leads directly into the courtyard garden through patio doors which has wooden seating and table with large umbrella, a lovely suntrap. There is a BBQ on the paved area surrounded by tubs and pots of pretty plants and flowers.

The conservatory/dining room has rush seat/ladder back seating and table for 6 persons and a leather sofa bed with other occasional seats. There is a small television and music/radio in here also. The stairs lead up to a large sitting/television room, fully beamed with one Chesterfield, one two seater sofa, two comfortable leather easy chairs and one Georgian tub chair. There is a small desk with a small collection of books, cds and games.

This cottage is ideally situated on a working farm and horse livery yard. Located between Woodstock and Burford on the edge of the Cotswolds, yet only 20 minutes from Oxford. Please note that the farm is 12 miles from Oxford via the A40 which is a very busy road in rush hours and 14 miles from Oxford via A4095, through Bladon and past Yarnton, which we find is a much quicker route into town.

Well behaved dogs and horses are very welcome. From the farm there is a superb network of bridleways and walks. We have a small 1000 year old Church at the bottom of the drive with very interesting and well renowned murals and a 4th century Roman Villa, both within easy walking distance of the cottage.
Witney (2 miles) is a market town previously famous for its blankets and now a vibrant shopping centre with many amenities and supermarkets including free parking.

Please contact us if there is anything we can do for you to make your stay more pleasant, including shopping, booking tables in restaurants, etc. We have been virtually fully booked since advertising with holiday-rentals/homeaway.
We live in the farmhouse and are always happy to advise on walks, outings, restaurants in the locality.

Please note:: As we are a working stock farm and horse livery yard we do ask that children and pets are fully supervised at all times. We have many fields and walks on the farm. The sows are farrowing all year, ewes are lambing in the Spring and mares are foaling in the Spring/early Summer. Please do not walk round the back of horses and mind little fingers!
