    “I cannot say enough about Sunnyside Cottage.”

Conveniently located in the heart of The Cotswolds, Bampton is a small almost untouched village.

    ! My husband and I just spent a glorious week at this very charming, very comfortable cottage in the beautiful little town of Bampton. Conveniently located in the heart of The Cotswolds, Bampton is a small almost untouched village. Because of its originality and period charm, it has been used throughout the filming as downtown ‘Downton’ in the hit series Downton Abbey. St. Mary’s church, Mrs. Crowley’s house, the library, it’s all there, A wonderful map called the Downton Mile has been created for visitors. It takes you on a wonderful walking tour of Bampton where there is so much to see beyond DA in this wonderful town brimming with history. A short walk from Sunnyside Cottage and you are in the heart of Bampton This treasure of a house is more than 200 years old. However, it has been recently renovated with an updated well stocked kitchen, new bathrooms and more. My husband and I were in the upstairs master bedroom with a very large brand new attached bath with a large roomy shower. Tons of closet space. Very comfortable king size bed. We didn’t use it but there is also a lovely downstairs king size bedroom also with its own very nice bathroom. The entire house has been professionally redecorated, top to bottom with beautiful period furnishings as well as new comfortable seating and carpeting. Easy to use fireplace that was efficient and started up easily. We were there in early May so we were lucky enough to experience an explosion of blooms and greenery in the perfectly maintained lush garden. A very thorough large binder has been made for guests filled with maps of surrounding towns, menus of local restaurants, brochures of various attractions and more will more than meet the need of any visitor regardless of their interests. My only regret is that we had to inevitably leave! We do hope to return here someday as there is much we would like see that we couldn’t fit in this trip but we will feel at home and happy returning to Sunnyside Cottage and The beloved town of Bampton.

We love it!.

About the location

BAMPTON, OXFORDSHIRE

Witney 4 miles; Burford 8 miles and Oxford 19 miles.

The thriving village of Bampton lies in the Thames Valley in the southern Cotswolds, amidst beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. Bampton is one of the oldest villages in England boasting a village shop, Post Office, butcher, and traditional pubs serving good food and real ales, all set around a pretty market square a hundred yards from the cottage. Ancient customs can still be experienced with the regular morris dancing festivities, which have been enjoyed for over 600 years. Just four miles away is the riverside town of Witney, which offers many attractions including a weekly market dating back to the Middle Ages, an 18th century town hall, and Wychwood Brewery. Burford is possibly one of the most famous of the Cotswolds' locations. With its medieval bridge, old stone houses and attractive Tudor and Georgian frontages, Burford is justifiably one of the most picturesque towns in England. Often referred to as the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds', the town was originally a fortified Anglo-Saxon ford to be an important regional crossroads and wealthy wool town. With little changing over the centuries. Burford is now very popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for it's shopping and antiques, and for the wide variety of places to eat, with restaurants, pubs and teashops. Oxford, the oldest university city in England, boasts interesting Botanical Gardens, museums and libraries, and plays host to many festivals and markets throughout the year. Enjoy a punt on the River Thames or take a boat trip on the River Cherwell. The ancestral home of Winston Churchill and the World Heritage Site of Blenheim Palace is just a short drive away, where many lovely walks can be enjoyed around the landscaped parkland. With so much nearby, Bampton provides a wonderful holiday destination.

Please be aware as this is a traditional cottage, the ceiling in the living room is quite low for people over 6ft. Sorry no pets and no smoking.
