With its origins dating back to the early 17th century, Chippy Cottage is one of a row of traditional Cotswold stone cottages, located on a quiet road in the heart of Chipping Norton, one of the famous market towns of the North Cotswolds. As well as having a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, Chipping Norton is ideally placed for exploring the Cotswolds region, whether walking, cycling or riding through the beautiful countryside, or exploring the many other lovely towns and villages just a short drive away. Chipping Norton is also well placed for visiting other world famous attractions, such as Blenheim Palace, the dreaming spires of Oxford, or Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.
Chippy Cottage has been lovingly refurbished and furnished by its owners, to create a warm and cosy environment, whilst retaining the property's many character features, including exposed Cotswold stone walls, oak beams, wooden doors and an inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove and traditional bread oven. The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, an Apple TV, two SMART TVs and a small, yet well presented kitchen.
The cottage sleeps a maximum of six people, in three bedrooms, with one bathroom, and there is a small courtyard garden at the rear of the property. Free on street parking is available close to the cottage. Chippy Cottage is an ideal retreat for families and friends looking for a beautiful property, which is well located for exploring the Cotswolds region and beyond.

Accessibility, health and safety
This is an old property and has many character features, including narrow and 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.

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.
