Our wonderful hosts anticipated our every need. The cottage is delightful and fully appointed with every modern convenience, yet retaining its charm and rich sense of history. It is set beautifully on a working farm, and for either a romantic getaway or as a base for sightseeing in The Cotswolds, it is an ideal spot. We will definitely return.
The Old Stables is a detached cottage on Grange Farm at the edge of the village of Swerford. The farm has it's own farm shop which sells lots of home-made produce and other goods. There is also a herd of alpacas and other animals and poultry including donkeys, a pony and Golden Guernsey goats which are a UK rare breed.
Swerford is a small village mentioned in the Domesday Book consisting of mainly ironstone cottages and with the lovely church of St Mary's (originally founded in the 13th Century) only a few minutes walk away. Behind the church is the site of an old Motte and Bailey which is believed to pre-date the church.
There are also several footpaths around the village and the area is excellent for walkers.
A short drive away and within walking distance is the village of Hook Norton where there is a Victorian brewery. It has it's own museum and offers tours and tastings of it's beers made on the premises.
There are lots of nearby attractions to visit. The city of Oxford is about 27 miles away and a walking tour is a great way to get an introduction to the history of the university colleges and some of the beautiful surrounding buildings, libraries and museums. You can also go punting on the River Cherwell with or without a chauffeur!
Nearer to home is the town of Woodstock with the magnificent Blenheim Palace which is well worth a visit. Stratford on Avon, the birthplace of Shakespeare, is about 40 minutes away. Also in the surrounding towns and villages are some lovely stately homes, National Trust properties and other things to do and see.
Chipping Norton is the nearest town with some useful and interesting shops, antique centres, a museum and it's own small theatre.
