Kingham, Stow on the Wold & surrounding area
Swallow's Rest is a stunning holiday property, nestling between two of the Cotswolds most attractive villages - Kingham and Churchill. Located in the grounds of the owner's beautiful home, this apartment is a contemporary bolt hole, beautifully furnished with a fabulous attention to detail; clever, eye catching design and a real sense of space. Light streams in from the unique windows, with views across 20 acres of private Cotswold farmland, while the wood burning stove offers cosy nights in during the winter months. We think this is an uber cool and attractive holiday option finished to a very high spec, and therefore a perfect Cotswold retreat. Stunning yet peaceful.
You can even enjoy this option without the car as there is a train station 10 mins walk away and you can easily reach everywhere else for your provisions and meals!
Entrance at ground floor and then up a small flight of stairs to a spacious, open plan apartment.
Kitchen Area is very well equipped with electric hob, electric oven and grill, dishwasher, fridge with freezer compartment and microwave. There is ample preparation space and a full selection of crockery, pots pans etc etc
Living Area has a gorgeous little wood burning stove, a large, comfortable sofa plus additional armchairs. The large flatscreen TV is very neatly stowed away in the cabinet and can be 'popped up' when required. There is Freeview and a DVD player also.
The bed is super-king size and can be made either as a double or as two singles, please specify when booking. As before, the TV can be enjoyed from the bed!!
Bathroom is very smart and contemporary, with shower, WC and washbasin.
Please note: there is a washing machine and tumble dryer for guests to use downstairs.
There is a private, south facing garden which has been newly planted by the owner who is garden designer, a real treat when in bloom. There is a table and chairs.
Surrounding the property are 20 acres of private, open fields, with a path leading into Kingham.
Any Day changeover

The location of this holiday home is, in many ways, as good as it gets! With the villages of Kingham and Churchill, plus Bledington all very close by you really are spoilt for choice whether this be for high quality gastro pubs, gorgeous Cotswold cottages or simply for rambling walks across the countryside. Kingham (which is about 10 mins walk away) has a little village store selling all the basics, plus two very good pubs, including the incredible Wild Rabbit which is owned by the Daylesford Organic store. In fact the store itself is about 30 mins walk or 3 mins in the car - one of the biggest draws to the area for sure and one we'd recommend popping to.
The Chequers pub in Churchill and The King's Head in Bledington are two absolutely excellent pubs and well worth visiting too - not that we only visit pubs!!
Slightly further afield are Chipping Norton, Stow on the Wold and Burford all very attractive and filled with interesting shops and places to visit and we'd certainly recommend. There are a huge number of National Trust gardens and houses within a reasonable drive too. The choice is wide and almost endless, although we would probably suggest that there is plenty to keep a couple busy in the local area!
"very well appointed, great location"Mr Bettesworth 2017-04-17
"Such a lovely property, well converted and quite different "mrs Ridsdill-Smith 2015-06-23
"Jamie and his family were most welcoming and informative. The flat is a light, spacious, beautifully designed and well kitted out hideaway and we ideally would have moved in permanently! The surrounding area is lovely and there are great pubs with good food everywhere. Our particular favourite was the very nearby Chequers at Churchill - possibly the best Sunday roast we have ever had! We cannot recommend the place, people and countryside highly enough."Mrs Morgan 2014-05-01
