About the property

Two Bedroom Country Cottage In A Conservation Area with country views.

Bellfield cottage is in a beautiful peaceful country location just a few minutes drive from Banbury and the M40 motorway. With miles of country walks from the front door, an award winning pub serving excellent food at less than a hundred yards, and within close driving distance to major attractions, this is the ideal self catering accommodation for a short break or as a base for an extended exploration of the surrounding area.

Bellfield cottage was extensively refurbished in 2013 and now offers comfortable accommodation with one double and one twin bedroom, two bathrooms upstairs and a cloakroom downstairs, a cosy lounge, a well equipped kitchen dining room, and a cottage garden with patio areas and a summerhouse fitted out as an artist's studio. For winter evenings the cottage is kept cosy with the log effect fire in the lounge and under floor heating to the dining room and bathrooms.

There is parking outside and free wifi is available throughout the cottage.

Bellfield is actually a three bedroom cottage with one bedroom reserved as a storeroom meaning that the downstairs accommodation is larger than usual for a two bedroom cottage.

About Richard and Wendy Brittaine

The owners are Richard and Wendy who bought Bellfield Cottage in 2013 after their return from working in the hospitality industry in the Maldives. Their aim has been to upgrade the cottage to be available for their occasional use when they are not travelling. As such it has been equipped as a real home, not just a holiday home.

Richard and Wendy Brittaine purchased this cottage in 2013

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you. We had a lovely weekend break. Beautiful cottage. Had a good walk over the fields to Wardington. Dined in the George and Dragon every night! Very convenient for M40 yet totally away from it all. Will definitely come again!" ....The Scrimshaws, Croydon.

Very Good

  • 3 of 5

Small cottage, ideal for 1 family, not quite so good for two couples (one couple have to take single beds). Again lounge seating suits a family rather than 4 adults. Also adjacent neighbours hog all the parking spaces.

Very clean and tidy. Serious leak in the top family bathroom shower sees wasted hot water, also makes the bath mat soaking wet.

By far the best aspect of the property is the amazing "George & Dragon" PH just a 5 minute walk away. Going to come back for this benefit alone!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. We know about the leak and we are in the process of getting this fixed. Good to know you are planning to re-visit! Kind regards, Richard and Wendy.

Bellfield a great cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Bellfield and it is superb !! We toured to the local tourist spots and the wife spent a fortune at Bicester village. All in all a great time was had and we had lovely meal at the George and Dragon, just a few steps from the cottage.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights and had a really nice time. The cottage is so cute with everything you could need, and the garden was a riot of colour - poppies, aquilegia, iris, roses. The beds were comfortable, with plenty of storage space in the bedrooms, the bathrooms were clean and functional and the kitchen had plenty of equipment.

The pub was a 2 minute walk and was OK. Very standard pub fare. Try further afield if you're a bit of a foodie like us. The Kitchen at Farnborough was lovely.

Bellfield Cottage is ideally situated on the edge of the Cotswolds and midway between Oxford and Stratford upon Avon. Warwick Castle, Silverstone, Bicester Village, Bletchley Park, Stow on the Wold are just some of the interesting and historic nearby attractions. Chacombe itself is an attractive historic village with many thatched ironstone walled cottages lining narrow streets. The Jurassic Way is an 88 mile walk through the Northamptonshire countryside which passes the front door of Bellfield Cottage.
