The property

Situated in the heart of Shipton under Wychwood, which itself lies just 3.5 miles north of Burford (one of the Cotswolds most iconic locations), South Lea has recently undergone a complete transformation to provide glorious accommodation for large families or groups of friends. Presented in a cool and contemporary style, the house benefits from having a gorgeous open plan kitchen / dining space - a fantastic place to while away the hours chatting with friends over dinner, two sitting areas - each with sumptuous sofas, large flat screen tv's and log- burners (for those chilly winter evenings): the perfect places to relax and unwind.

The ground floor also provides a lovely bedroom suite, complete with king size bed and en-suite shower facilities. Upstairs you will find 5 bedrooms (one double, two twins, one king size and one super king size) as well as 2 family bathrooms.

Outside you have enclosed gardens both to the front and rear of the property, as well as a generous off road parking area which can accommodate 5 or 6 cars. From the property it's just a short walk to the beautiful Cotswolds countryside where you have mile upon mile of fabulous walks.

However, if your idea of a walk is to take you no further than the pub then please don't worry - you have 3 really good pubs all within a 10 minute walk. Just a short drive away in one direction you have the Medieval town of Burford, with its wealth of cafes, shops and restaurants, and in the opposite direction you are just a 10 minute drive from the bustling market town of Chipping Norton.

The historic town of Woodstock, with Blenheim Palace (the birth place of Winston Churchill) lies just 10 miles away.

You are also within easy reach of the university city of Oxford (20 miles). South Lea truly is the ideal location for friends and families to explore all that this beautiful part of The Cotswolds has to offer.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.

Shipton-under-Wychwood is a village in the Evenlode valley about 4 miles (6.4 km) north of Burford, Oxfordshire. The village is one of three named after the ancient forest of Wychwood. The others are Milton-under-Wychwood immediately to the west of the village and Ascott-under-Wychwood about 1.5 miles to the east.
Much of Shipton is a conservation area and the village lies within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
There are bus connections to Witney, and Chipping Norton and the Shipton railway station is on the Cotswold Line running from Paddington to Hereford.
The village is on the Oxfordshire Way footpath, which can be used to walk north-westwards up the Evenlode Valley to Bruern Abbey and Bledington, or eastwards down the valley to Charlbury.
The village also offers 3 excellent pubs; The Lamb, The Shaven Crown and The Wychwood.
