Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Chastleton - Fox End

A charming, self-catering Cotswolds cottage, sleeps 8, no kids under 6, no pets

Sorry but this property is not suitable for children under 6. Best described as a typical 'chocolate box' picture of an English country cottage, this stunning 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, thatched Cotswold's cottage, accommodates 8 people. The original building dates back to the 1650’s and has been sensitively added on to over the years, creating all the benefits of a spacious contemporary home but with many original features. There are two twin bedrooms, one bedroom with a queen size bed and one bedroom with a super king size bed. There are three spectacular bathrooms, two en suite, one family bathroom.

If you are looking for that perfect self-catering holiday in the Cotswolds, you couldn't have chosen a better property. Fox End really is the ultimate quality vacation rental. Whether you are looking for a venue for a family reunion, a luxury base from which to explore this most beautiful part of England, or need a sanctuary to escape your busy daily life and immerse yourself in rural splendour, this house is the one for you.

Fly Fishing: There are ample opportunities for Fly Fishing for trout and grayling in The Cotswolds. From charming still water to elegant chalk streams it's all here. Visit the Orvis store in Burford for up to the minute info on where to fish, what flies to use and how to get permits. There is a great Put 'n' Take lake only 5 minutes drive from the cottage which is in a gorgeous setting and has abundant rainbow and brown trout on two small waters. You can buy a half day or day ticket on site (please, do not hesitate to contact owner for further information or link of the website).

Horse Riding: There is a wonderful riding school 300 yd from the cottage. It is excellent for both beginners and small children as well as the more experienced rider who may wish to canter out into the Cotswold countryside and see the local rural splendour first hand. Do please contact us for more details at the time of booking.

What to do in the Cotswolds: We have many years experience of all the Cotswolds has to offer. That quaint pub with excellent ales and home cooked food, the dates of the best local markets, the whereabouts of the best butcher, ideas for young children, where you can get the best spa treatment (yes, spa treatment!) we can help you. Please ask for our 'What To Do In The Cotswolds' info sheet and we will arm you with everything you could possibly need for a successful stay at Fox End and The Cotswolds.

A glorious retreat in the Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

Capturing the best of all worlds, One approaches Fox End to see the quintessential Cotswold House, thatched roof and all, set in beautiful grounds.

Inside, the house has beautiful period details and every contemporary convenience one could imagine

We were five adults, but the four bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths could comfortably accommodate eight. And while I say adults, the house is well equipped with games and puzzles galore. While at home the BBC is a popular outlet, we never did turn n the television here, helping to reenforce our withdrawal from real world pressure. Short day trips here and there to the beautiful Cotswold towns provided just the right amount of entertainment. One evening we had dinner and then attended a play at the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford

Our hosts have prepared a very helpful guide about how the house works, and about pubs, restaurants and nearby sights

Fox End's neighbor, a short walk away is Chastleton House, a National Trust House with a fascinating history. Several hours in the house and well maintained gardens can be followed, on many days, with tea in the attached church.

One must have a car and be comfortable negotiating the narrow but well marked roads

The house is exactly as advertised and is in exceptional condition.

  • 5 of 5

The property from the outside is a charming rustic cottage in a tranquil country setting.On the inside the house has been tastefully and exceedingly well modernised with especially the kitchen and master bedrooms being of the highest standard.

The owners are very pleasant to work with and provide copious amounts of information.

I certainly have no hesitation in highly recommending this property.

Most Beautiful Cottage in a Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

If you have the opportunity to rent this Cottage, do so! You will not be even close to disappointed. The owners have completely modernized the interior, while keeping the charm and feel of a country cottage. The furnishings and elegant and reflect a refined and thoughtful design talent. You will find everything you need in the kitchen and throughout the home. There is an owners Guide that has a wonderful selection of things to do/ local restaurants/stores etc. that we found immensely helpful. The Cottage is a perfect and peaceful base from which to explore everything in the Cotswolds and surrounding areas. It is a rare gem and was the highlight of our trip in England.

Immaculate english cottage feels like home

  • 5 of 5

For the 7th time returning with our family to our most favorite hideaway in the cotswolds. Every time a joy to be there again in the stylish super comfortable place that feels like home. Fully equipped kitchen, well maintained gardens, soft and high quality linens and big and soft beds. Direct and personal service from the owner. Very quiet place with just cow and sheep as your neighbors. We will definitely be back again!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was beyond perfection, it would have to be the best holiday rental we have ever stayed at.

The cottage was so lovely, even better than the photos. It was beautifully clean and so well maintained.

I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone wanting a perfect holiday in the Cotswolds.

I can't say enough good things about it.

Thank you so much!!!

Fox End Cottage is located in Chastleton, 4 miles from Moreton In Marsh, in the most beautiful part of the Northern Cotswolds, 75 miles NW of London. The house is perfectly situated for sightseeing some of rural England's greatest gems. Shakespeare's Stratford Upon Avon, the splendid seat of the Spencer Chuchill family at Blenheim Palace, the ancient city with the fairytale castle at Warwick, the pretty picture postcard Cotswold villages and towns like Chipping Camden, Stow On The Wold, Moreton In Marsh, Lower Slaughter and Bourton On The Water are all within close range. Visit the world famous gardens at Hidcote or walk round the corner from the cottage to our own hamlet's National Trust property, Chastleton House (1602). Have a day in the gorgeous university town of Oxford (only 35 min by car) and don't forget to stop in the film set village of Woodstock on the way there or back.

Only two miles up the road you will find the incredible Daylesford Organic Farm Shop and Spa.
