  • “The cottage was ok, the village was lovely and the locals very friendly.”

    We had some lovely days out at Bletchley, Blenheim Palace, Bourton on the Water and Hidcote however the whole holiday was over shadowed by the following: The bed was the most uncomfortable bed we have ever slept in. You could feel every spring pushing into your back and there was no support. It really needs replacing. The freezer was completely iced up and we had to hack the ice away just to get into one drawer.

    We had some lovely days out at Bletchley, Blenheim Palace, Bourton on the Water and Hidcote however the whole holiday was over shadowed by the following: The bed was the most uncomfortable bed we have ever slept in. You could feel every spring pushing into your back and there was no support. It really needs replacing. The freezer was completely iced up and we had to hack the ice away just to get into one drawer. The following day it was iced up again and it's quite clear why this happened. The freezer door is not fitted properly so the door doesn't actually close so the motor is over producing ice as it is fighting the temperature in the room. Another small matter, the smoke alarm, whilst great to have, was so sensitive we couldn't even make toast without it going off. It went off every day of the holiday and must be really annoying for the neighbours. Finally, the boiler made the most horrendous noise every time the hot tap was turned on. We would struggle to recommend this cottage due to these issues.

    Many thanks for your feedback on Orchard Cottage. Your comments have been taken onboard and the mattress is being replaced week commencing the 11th October. In relation to the freezer, we are very sorry, this was an oversight and one we tried to rectify before your arrival. This is now working correctly. The smoke alarm has been moved to avoid it going off too often. There is no boiler in the property and the noise comes from the water pump and unfortunately this is not something that can be changed, but the noise should not be loud enough to bother guests.

The property

Orchard Cottage is a wonderful cottage situated in the heart of this lovely village.

The cottage is flooded with natural light and the open plan living and dining area is full of charm and character, with exposed Cotswold stone walls, exposed beams and flagstone flooring giving it a real cosy feeling.

A step up leads into the well-equipped and tastefully decorated galley style kitchen boasting a breakfast bar.

From here the bright and contemporary bathroom is accessed.

Upstairs you will find both bedrooms with elegant furnishings. The stunning tiered garden sits at the front of the property and is a wonderful spot to soak up the summer sunshine.

Bordered by mature shrubs and featuring beautiful trees and raised flower beds, the garden comprises two tiers, both of which have outdoor tables with seating for four.

A parasol and charcoal barbecue are also provided, perfect for making the most of this delightful outside space. Pubs, shops and fantastic walks are literally all on your doorstep!

About the location

HOOK NORTON

Chipping Norton 5 miles; Stratford-upon-Avon 22 miles; Oxford 25 miles.

A picturesque village with many honey-coloured historic buildings, thatched cottages, a thriving community and its very own steam driven brewery, the last of its kind in the country. The village boasts a well-stocked shop, Post Office, several pubs and restaurants and many lovely walks can be enjoyed from the village with the D'Arcy Dalton Way passing through the village. The market town of Chipping Norton lies south of the village in the Cotswold Hills, plays host to many festivals throughout the year, has an abundance of shops, cafes and restaurants as well as a theatre and the oldest golf course in Oxfordshire. Historic Banbury nestles on the banks of the River Cherwell in the Cherwell Valley and offers many restaurants, cafes, a canalside museum, cinema and local theatre, plus the annual Banbury Folk Festival attracts many visitors each year. Blenheim Place, the ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill is also close by. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and known as ‘The City of Dreaming Spires’ has an abundance of attractions, namely the 38 colleges of the university, the oldest university teaching room, Bodleian Library, Botanic Gardens and museums, as well as playing host to many festivals and markets. Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare, Warwick with its magnificent castle and Royal Leamington Spa make a lovely day out.
