Comfortable and inviting, this cottage embodies Cotswolds charm. The lounge feels instantly cosy with the fire crackling and the many traditional features on display – though, given that it's a period home, steep stairs and sloped ceilings are to be expected. Come summertime, the suntrap garden is a delightful spot to enjoy a glass of wine in the fresh air. It's also dog-friendly, so two of your furry friends can tag along for a fee. Location-wise, Hook Norton is home to old-world pubs, a quaint selection of shops, and an award-winning brewery. With Chipping Norton, Stratford-upon-Avon, and other picturesque villages nearby, you'll also be well-placed to explore further afield.

Home truths

    This home sleeps four guests, plus one additional infant. Your host can provide a high chair and stair gate on request, but you'll need to bring your own cot.

    Though cosy, we think the interiors here are slightly dated. It's also a period home, so expect low beams, sloped ceilings, and a steep staircase.

    Free on-street parking is available here. We suggest hiring a car in this area.

    Mobile phone signal can vary, depending on the provider.

    The smart TV has Netflix, but you'll need to use your own login details.

    A starter supply of wood is provided for the fire between October and April.

    The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound-only basis.
