Property Information

Gladstone Cottage is a spacious home ideal for groups looking to get away to the Cotswolds for a relaxing break. Inside the house has undergone a complete renovation, with the old, historic section retaining classic cottage touches like a large inglenook fireplace, beams and creaky floorboards! It has a lovely feel - atmospheric. The new addition is a large new 'cottage' which has a top of the range kitchen / diner, ideal for those who love to cook and entertain, along with a spacious living room plus two large ensuite bedrooms upstairs. The owners have overseen the work and ensured that it is very much the entertaining home they wanted - and the result is very much a place to kick back and relax. There are a total of 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (3 are ensuite) and with 2 living rooms there is ample space to spreadout. Outside is a large garden with ample parking. Next door is a good gastro pub which has a good reputation and would be hard to not visit at some stage during your stay. A great place to entertain and spread out. Banbury main line station is just 15 mins away.

Map & Local Information

The cottage is located on the road that passes through the village of South Newington heading between Bloxham and Chipping Norton yet even though it is on the road, it is a quiet cottage inside, behind thick, old stone walls. Even better, the cottage is next door to the gastro pub 'The Duck on the Pond' which has a good reputation locally for good food! The village itself is in the northern area of the Cotswolds, and from it you can take some superb walks into lesser know areas and village - what they describe as 'off the beaten track'! Outside the village are some especially pretty spots worth visiting, Great Tew village is gorgeous, stunning and famous for its old buildings PLUS the superb pub - The Falkland Arms. It serves some good food, but you will need to book - it is very small and one of the oldest pubs in England.

Also in Tew is the renowned Soho Farmhouse, open to members only sadly, but if you are a member then Gladstone Cottage is about 12 mins drive (taxis all day). Banbury main line station (direct from London) is about 15 mins away.

Of note nearby is Chipping Norton (about 10 mins drive) a classic Cotswolds' market town with a wide selection of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, notably The Fox which has had a massive makeover in 2016. There is an excellent Thai restaurant (Thai Shire) and similarly curry restaurant. There are some excellent artisan shops worth visiting, including the Bliss Mill Antique mall which is very well know locally. Read more on our blog guide to Chipping Norton here.

Bloxham is a village approx 5 mins from the cottage and where there are some more basic shops for your stay. Beyond Bloxham is Banbury, a large, working / market town with good access from London (M40).
