The property

Nestled on the grounds of a tranquil working farm at the heart of Filkins village, Stable Cottage is a fantastic, detached dwelling offering a wonderful base from which to explore the spectacular Oxfordshire countryside.

Surrounded by beautiful open fields and friendly farm animals, this homely abode offers a truly relaxing retreat to the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for a family or group of six.

Renovated to a high standard, you can delight in many cosy evenings indoors cuddled close to your loved ones on the sumptuous sofas that decorate the charming living/dining room, watching your favourite shows on the Smart TV as you warm your feet from the heat of the woodburning stove.

Cook up a storm in the pretty farmhouse kitchen with the help of the many handy appliances and utensils that lie within, before serving up at the dining table with a delicious bottle of bubbly or choosing to dine alfresco in the gorgeous, enclosed garden.

Head back inside to the welcoming ambiance of the cottage, freshening up in the well-designed cloakroom or climbing the staircase to the first floor where you can unwind with a long afternoon soak in the bathroom.

Grab your towel and retreat to one of the three well-appointed bedrooms; a king-size and a twin both resting on the first floor, and a quaint yet flexible twin with zip/link beds set on the second floor.

Make your most of your time in the countryside with days spent exploring the many picture-perfect villages dotted in and around the Cotswolds, where you can embark on a scenic hike through the luscious open landscapes and uncover landmarks and attractions such as The Great House, Notgrove Long Barrow and Dowdeswell Hall.

Wander along the banks of the River Thames to the village of St Johns Priory and see Farley Well, Cheese Wharf and the National Trust owned Buscot Old Parsonage, or head to the ancient Roman town of Cirencester for tours of the amphitheater, Corinium Museum and Cirencester Park.

Enjoy a day out on the crystal-clear waters of Cotswold Country Park & Beach, where you can try out some watersports and wander the The Elemental Sculpture Park.

Grab dinner and drinks in the city of Oxford, home to Oxford Castle & Prison, La Maison du Chateau and North Hinksey Conduit House.

See incredible exotic creatures at Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens or Crocodiles of the World, or hop in the car and head for 4 Kingdoms Adventure Park & Family Farm, a real hit with those travelling with children.

Closer to home, the quintessential village shop offers all the essentials, as well as tasty cheeses and meats, perfect for a relaxing evening indoors with a bottle of wine and charcuterie board, whilst the local pub serves up tasty ales and delicious hot meals, so you don’t have to worry about doing the cooking!

Live many happy moments with your loved ones on a holiday at Stable Cottage.
