Kingham, Stow on the Wold & surrounding area
Keen's Cottage is simply delightful! Set in the 'West End' of this award winning village, the cottage is a classic 18th Century Cotswold property packed with attractive and traditional features that are mixed with modern touches to make this a real stand out holiday cottage option. Its location down a little lane and within a traditional terrace of cottages is very peaceful and very convenient for two superb pubs less than 5 mins walk away. Internally the property was recently renovated to provide a new conservatory/dining room and new kitchen alongside the stunning inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove. Upstairs are two good sized bedrooms with two bathrooms. Outside there is a completely enclosed, south facing garden. This is a real gem and an outstanding choice for your Cotswold break or holiday.

Kingham is a beautiful unspoilt Cotswold village with a large open green and some elegant stone and thatch cottages mostly dating from the 17th and 18th centuries. It is situated in the Evenlode valley in Oxfordshire and is a short drive from the more well known town of Chipping Norton. It is a thriving village with a good sense of community and was voted the UK's 'Village of the Year' by Country Life a few years ago. As well as the pubs there is a good village store and an attractive church.
The village is unique amongst Cotswold villages, because it is served by a main line railway station about a mile from the village, the mainline railway station provides regular services to London with services operated by First Great Western Link. Of particular note is the The Kingham Plough which is a quintessential Cotswold Inn and has an outstanding restaurant. According to AA Gill: "The kitchen is a serious restaurant workplace. The bar menu is as fine as any I've seen...anyone thinking of opening a local pub restaurant should come here and see the gold standard." (AA Gill writing in the Sunday Times). Otherwise nearby are Chipping Norton, Stow on the Wold and Burford, with Oxford, Stratford upon Avon and Bath all within a reasonable drive.
"Lovely little property, very good location in Kingham, very much as advertised, very comfortable, good beds and showers, well equipped kitchen without excessive knick knacks. Particularly nice to have an induction hob. A great stay."Mr Forster 2017-11-01
