Chipping Norton, Chipping Norton & surrounding area
Hare House is a truly neat-as-a-pin town house as one could wish for. Set across three floors and stylishly updated for families and small groups, this gem of a holiday home is the perfect spot to make the most of Chipping Norton. Located a few moments from the market square, this gorgeous home has a lovely, cosy feel to it; warm and welcoming with colour and style that makes it feel like it's fresh from the pages of a magazine! The owners clearly have a good eye for style, yet have kept it simple and restful and nicely uncluttered. The flare also comes to life with the little pictures of rabbits and hares you will come across.
Inside, there is a spacious living room with wood burner, a compact but well equipped kitchen for your inner Nigella... whilst upstairs are three large bedrooms and two luxury bathrooms, all large and airy and with plenty of space to spread out and relax. Outside is a small gravelled terrace area, but to be honest you are just as likely to pop up the street to one of the local cool cafes to save on your washing up!!
We really like Hare House and love its 'feel'. A welcome choice where you may choose to spot members of the "Chipping Norton Set" (... or not as the case may be!).

Hare House sits just down the street yet very close the market square in the heart of Chipping Norton. With a very wide range of local bistros and artisan shops mixed with some of the more familar brands (like Cafe Nero and others) visitors to Chippy (as it's described locally) will have plenty to choose from. Your stroll from your holiday cottage is no more than a minute up the hill where you will be able to visit the Farmer's Market during the week or indulge in one of the many places to eat or drink.
Specific favourites include the famous Jaffa & Neale bookshop-come-cafe which is a joy to behold and which serves outrageously superb cake and coffee. Thai Shire is one of the best Thai food restaurants in the Cotswolds and if your not eating but hunting for some quirky objets d'art or home furnishings, then the Station Mill Antiques centre is an absolute must (plus it is about 3 mins walk down the hill from the house!). Our Guide to Chipping Norton is a good place to start your search too!
The Chipping Norton theatre is one of the country's leading boutique theatres with a wide range of performances, talks or similar going on all year round and therefore it is certainly worth looking up what's on when in town.
Beyond Chipping Norton are a wide range of the Cotswolds best known locations. Burford and Stow on the Wold are each about 20-25 mins away in the car. Broadway and Stratford upon Avon are slightly further afield and equally worth a visit. For the committed "shopper" Daylesford Organic Store, about 10 mins drive, is a must, which along with a cafe, restaurant, food store and garden section there is also a spa and treatment centre too.
