Property Information

Hooky Cottage is a gorgeous thatched cottage situated close to the centre of this lovely village, itself located in the northern part of the Cotswolds. The cottage has a long history and has a wealth of period features that give it real character. Naturally the thatch is very appealing (and rare!), but the beams, wood burning stove and Cotswold stone walls give the cottage a real homely, cosy feel that sets it apart from many others. The cottage is ideal for two, but can easily accommodate an extra person as there is a second bedroom. The owners have undertaken some recent updates and these give it a welcoming feel, mixing 'period' and 'modern' in a tasteful way. There is a small patio area to the rear along with a separate south facing garden area. With some great pubs moments away and proximity to superb walks on your doorstep, this is an ideal 'rural retreat' for a couple or couple with a young child. Enjoy!

From the back door there is a small courtyard (not enclosed) which has a small table and chairs, this leads to the outhouse.

Due to the quirks of old arrangements, the two parts of the garden are disconnected!!

Map & Local Information

Hook Norton (locally known as 'Hooky') is a lovely, attractive village sitting in the northern Cotswolds between the market towns of Chipping Norton and Banbury. The village is very convenient from the M40, making it a good option for people travelling from the south east or from the north. The village is a thriving community particularly known for its local brewery (Hook Norton Beers) which serves award winning beers across the surrounding counties including Hooky where there are a number of pubs to choose from! There are also a few extra basic shops for your basics too.

The village is surrounded by beautiful countryside with a wealth of great walks to choose from. Similarly there are some other delightful villages nearby including Great Tew (The Falkland Arms pub is well worth a visit) Great Rollright (visit the Rollright Stones - linked to Stonehenge) and also Swerford.

Chipping Norton, approx 8 mins drive, is a bustling market town with a good selection of shops including a supermarket, restaurants and (more) pubs. There is also an excellent book shop-come-cafe selling top drawer cakes called Jaffa & Neale. Slightly further afield are Stow on the Wold, Burford and Moreton on Marsh - all approx 25 mins from Hooky.

Although this is deep Northern Cotswolds territory, it is an excellent choice for a weekend break or for those looking to get out and tour this beautiful area of England.
