    “From the moment we arrived at Garden Cottage we were greeted with the warmest welcome from Niki which instantly made us feel like this was a home from home.”

    ...

    The cottage was perfect and suited both myself and my husband perfectly, it had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The cottage was decorated beautifully and was thoroughly cleaned prior to our arrival. The cottage was situated in the small town of Black Bourton where we were able to enjoy stunning walks, we were only a short drive from some of the larger towns as well as local attractions. Niki had kindly created a welcome pack which highlighted everything the Cotswolds had to offer and the must see places, this was incredibly helpful and we planned some lovely day trips. We would also recommend the The Plough Inn in the village of Alvescot which was just a short 5 minute drive with free parking at the rear of the pub. The food was superb and reasonably priced, again we would have to thank Niki for the recommendation from the welcome pack which highlighted some wonderful places to eat nearby. We cannot find any fault with our stay at Garden Cottage and our hosts Niki and Lawrence were some welcoming and friendly, we were even given the pleasure of meeting Jasper the family Labrador who greeted us every morning by sitting by the back door in the garden. We highly recommend anyone who is considering a visit to the Cotswolds to stay at Garden Cottage, we are already talking about booking our next trip.

The property

Garden Cottage is a delightful holiday cottage located adjacent to the wonderful Shilbrook Manor, itself a listed building built around the 1860's.

The property has undergone a complete overhaul and today provides a high standard of self catering accommodation whilst overlooking a simply stunning garden of two acres.

The cottage is situated on the edge of the hamlet of Black Bourton, which has history dating back to 1086, and is within easy reach of popular spots such as Burford, Woodstock and Lechlade on Thames.

This romantic hideaway is ideal for a couple who want to escape to the Cotswolds.The owner, who is a garden designer, is also a keen horticulturalist very happy to sell plants (when and where possible!) in addition to eggs and home made preserves.

About the location

BLACK BOURTON

Bampton 2 miles; Burford 7 miles; Oxford 21 miles.

Black Bourton is a small medieval village in Oxfordshire, notably the birthplace of influential novelist Maria Edgeworth and painter William Turner of Oxford. Black Bourton has an excellent gastropub and is home to St Mary the Virgin Church which features superb 13th century wall paintings carefully uncovered in 1932. The nearby village of Bampton, one of the principle locations for Downton Abbey, is well worth a visit to discover the many sites of interest, including the West Oxfordshire Arts Gallery. Burford, the ‘gateway' to the Cotswolds, is within easy reach, and Oxford is just 21 miles away. An excellent base for touring this beautiful region.
