Welcome to House on the Green, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.
The House on the Green is a modern Cotswold stone home, built on a small development on the site of the former village hospital. Overlooking a large green and with an enclosed rear garden, the house offers peace and quiet, yet is moments away from the centre of Chipping Norton, one of the North Cotswolds' famous market towns, with its wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants. Chipping Norton is ideally placed for exploring the beautiful Cotswolds region, as well as other world famous attractions, such as Blenheim Palace, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon.

Chipping Norton, better known as "Chippy" by locals, is a well-known market town in the Cotswolds which has been runner up in the Great British High Street awards for small market town for the last two years. Once the site of a Norman castle, the town is the highest in Oxfordshire and has a number of notable buildings to visit. The Town Hall proudly marks the days when the town was a Borough. It was built in 1842 and used to host the poultry and butter markets on Wednesdays, as well as the Corn Exchange. It was also used for entertainment and auctions and lucky visitors may catch a glimpse of a bride and groom as the hall is licensed for weddings.
A picturesque row of traditional Cotswold stone cottages can be found in the town which were once almshouses given to Chippy by puritan Henry Cornish. The almshouses are set back from the road and are entered through a grand archway which has elaborate finials and cresting.
Another standout building is Bliss Mill. It dates back to the 1870s and was once used in the manufacturing of wool and tweed for cloth manufacturer William Bliss. The mill was designed to look like a country house, but has the large chimney at one end for which it is recognised. It is now a Grade II listed building and was converted into luxury apartments in the 1980s.
