Corn Close Cottage is a stunning, traditional Cotswold stone Cottage, located on a quiet lane in the heart of the beautiful North Cotswolds countryside, a mile away from the small village of Paxford and close to the well known market towns of Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh. All of the rooms in the cottage have views out over the large garden to the fields and woods beyond, and there are numerous walks and footpaths that can be accessed directly from the cottage. Corn Close Cottage is also ideally placed for visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, as well as other famous places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace and Oxford.
The recently refurbished cottage retains many character features, including oak beams, some exposed Cotswold stone walls and a very grand stone fireplace, containing a wood burning stove. This character has been complemented by the cottage's contemporary furnishings and by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV with DVD player, and a well presented kitchen.
The cottage sleeps a maximum of six adults + two children (see Description and Key Features below), in four bedrooms, with two bathrooms. There is plenty of off-street parking on the private driveway and a particular feature of the cottage is its large, enclosed garden. Corn Close Cottage is a beautiful, peaceful location for friends or families looking for a holiday in the Cotswolds.
Booking and payment
Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.
For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.
All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.
Security deposits are not required (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions).
The standard capacity of the property is six guests, however, there are a total of four additional beds available at the cottage, two bunk-beds in bedroom 3 and two single beds in bedroom 4. Because of space constraints on the ground floor, only two of these beds are available to children under the age of 16, ie. the maximum capacity of the cottage is six adults + two children. The costs of the extra two beds are not included in the standard rental cost of the property and are charged at 10% of the standard rental cost per bed (eg. to increase the capacity from the standard six guests to eight, the rental price would be 120% of the standard cost).
The maximum occupancy of the property, including its grounds, is six adults and two children at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than six adults and two children at the property.
Regrettably, pets are not accepted.

The property's garden is enclosed, however, please note that it is very large and not all of the garden is visible from the house, therefore young children should be supervised outside at all times.
A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay.
Accessibility, health and safety
This is an old property and has many character features, including steep stairs, low beams and multiple floors, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.
The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.
No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas. If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England". The name Cotswold means "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides".
The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
