Maisey Cottage has a long history, over 200 years in fact and much of it in the same family that owns it today - so it comes complete with some special memories too! Inside the Grade II listed building, is a tranquil and attractive holiday home, full of character and charm - there are beams everywhere, the odd wonky floor board and low ceiling all giving the building a unique feel. It certainly fits the bill for couples who love the "slow life" - but who also want to enjoy some modern creature comforts for a relaxing holiday. The smart, contemporary kitchen is the heart of the house. It is well equipped and with the joy of bi-fold doors you can experience real "inside-outside" living (with a covered area that allows guests to enjoy the fresh air). The living room couldn't be more cosy - large sofas, a wood burning stove belting out the heat and with rugs and a flagstone floor, it's the perfect place to snuggle and relax. Upstairs are two bedrooms, each with views across the village and countryside. Throughout the cottage are some lovely pieces of furniture. There are some super walks from your door and with Burford up the road and some excellent pubs nearby, you really have everything on your doorstep.
