Picture Book, Plum Guide home in Oxfordshire, UK

Click to book Picture Book now: from £200 per night Ivy climbing the honey-brown stone and wisteria arching over the forest green door, this Cotswolds cottage looks like it was taken from the pages of a storybook. In the pretty Saxon village of Filkins, you can head out for a countryside walk and finish beside the crackling fire at the award-winning Five Alls inn. This four-bedroom cottage is brimming with rustic charm, retaining many of its original features from timber beams to the spiral staircase. We especially love the fireplace in the sitting room hearth, which adds a little warmth to the old flagstone floors. The window seat makes for the perfect reading nook, especially with a fire crackling in the grate. Meals can be enjoyed outside, in the bright, breakfasting kitchen or in the dedicated dining room by the original fireplace. A skylight floods the kitchen table with morning light, so it’s the perfect place to start the day with tea and toast. Sleeps up to 6 | 4 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
