    “Lovely cottage in the heart of the Cotswold.”

    A secret hideaway just for two. So peaceful, and well equipped for a lovely break away. Furnished to a high standard and very comfortable, enabling us to have a relaxing break, the owners garden and the outside sitting area were ideal. ...

    A secret hideaway just for two. So peaceful, and well equipped for a lovely break away. Furnished to a high standard and very comfortable, enabling us to have a relaxing break, the owners garden and the outside sitting area were ideal. Enjoyed the walks from the accommodation to Bouton on the Water along well marked public footpaths - this was great as we did not fancy the walk along the main road which was a very fast road. Would like to thank Iris, Nick and the dogs for their hospitality and making sure we settled. Thank you.

The property

What a lovely location!

Foxhill Annex is a delightful, single storey home approached via a long drive through some stunning open Cotswolds countryside.

Passing through a few barns, you arrive at the farm, beautifully manicured and ordered and with your cottage on one level facing the owner's stunning Cotswolds house across the courtyard.

The property is simply yet comfortably furnished with an open plan living space, delightful bedroom and relaxing bathroom all presented in contemporary colours.

Across the courtyard is a garden which the welcoming owners are happy for guests to use with open and uninterrupted views across the countryside.

About the location

BOURTON-ON-THE-WATER

Stow-on-the-Wold 4 miles; Moreton-in-Marsh 8 miles; Chipping Norton 13 miles; Cheltenham 15.5 miles.

Located in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the historic village of Bourton-on-the-Water dates back to Neolithic times with over 100 buildings being Grade II listed or higher. The picturesque high street nestles alongside the River Windrush over which several low stone bridges span, which is why Bourton-on-the-Water is known as the Venice in the Cotswolds. Tradition states that an annual football match is played in the summer, in the River Windrush with the banks lined with spectators, with the aim to score as many goals as possible and get as wet as possible! The village has an eclectic range of visitor attractions, including The Model Village, Cotswold Motor Museum, Birdland Park and Gardens as well as a Dragonfly Maze, monthly farmers’ market as well as many tea rooms, an artisan bakery, antiques and craft markets, traditional sweet shop, cycle hire and its very own perfumery. Nearby, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises traditional England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly farmers' market. The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antiques shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Also take a visit to the medieval town of Burford for a great day out where you can enjoy a trip to the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are both within easy reach and make a great day out. The spa town of Cheltenham is, architecturally, the most complete Regency town in England with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called The City of Dreaming Spires has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also all within easy reach.
