Evenlode Cottage is a traditional farm cottage located on the edge of the attractive Cotswolds' village of Charlbury. The cottage, which is very well equipped for self catering provides simple, inexpensive accommodation ideal for a family or group of 4 or 5 who plan to tour the local area or simply have 'family-time', making the most of the huge range of things to do on the farm - all right from your front door! With so many games and loads of open space kids will love it here and so too will adults who are happy to 'get involved'!! Inside, the cottage is an attractive and comfortable size, with a large living / dining room. The cottage was once part of an old barn, and which has been converted into cottages a few years ago. You have got a shop on the farm for your basic provisions too.

Charlbury is a little known village located in what many people describe as 'the golden triangle' of the Cotswolds. So called because of its proximity to places such as Chipping Norton, Stow on the Wold and Burford - each of which are about 10 / 15 mins away. It is also one of the very few places that has its own train station which comes from Paddington London. (You can walk to the cottages from the station, it will take about 20 mins walk)
The village has absolutely absolutely everything you could wish, a few good pubs, (The Bull at Charlbury, The Bell and The Rose and Crown) some serving good food, an excellent convenience store plus a few other basic shops - there is even a farmer's market once a month. There is superb architecture throughout but especially in the heart of the old village.
We recommend, if you can, to travel to Great Tew where not only is a superb village, but a excllent pub, The Falkland Arms, a totally quintessential village pub, under a thatched roof. Beautiful!
There are loads of things to do while in Charlbury, including a must do walk to Cornbury House a stunning private manor which isn't open to the public but which has a number of walks through the grounds. This is in Charlbury. The Wilderness Festival in July is a must do if you can, similarly Cornbury both of which are music festivals over a wekend and are amongst the best for families in the UK.
Woodstock is very close by, approx 5 miles away, where you will find a wider range of shops and restaurants plus, of course, Blenheim Palace the seat of the Duke of Marlborough and previously the home to Winston Churchill. A day trip here is a must if you have the time.
The countryside in this area is extremely attractive and explains why it is amongst the most attractive places (and sort after too) to live in the Cotswolds.
