Honeysuckle Cottage is an elegant and comfortable cottage, located in the centre of the pretty north-east Cotswolds village of Middle Tysoe. The delightful surrounding countryside, with spectacular views, is accessible directly from the cottage and this "off the beaten track" village is largely self-contained, with a local pub, Post Office with shop, tea rooms and a village store with off-license. Middle Tysoe is ideally located for visiting the many lovely Cotswold towns and villages, including Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden and Stow-on-the-Wold, as well as being perfectly located for exploring William Shakespeare's birthplace of Stratford-upon-Avon. Warwick Castle, Blenheim Palace and Oxford are also easily accessible.
This spacious cottage has been decorated with a contemporary feel, complemented by characterful features such as a wood burning stove, wood panelling, stone cladding and a bright and airy dining area, which looks out onto the garden. The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Smart TV and a well presented kitchen.
Honeysuckle Cottage sleeps eight people, in four bedrooms, with three lovely bathrooms and a ground floor cloakroom. There is an enclosed garden and free on street parking is readily available close to the property. The cottage is perfect for extended families or a group of friends looking for a relaxing break in a beautiful village, surrounded by spectacular countryside.
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.
A security deposit of £150 is payable, which is returned after the letting period, subject to an inspection of the property. For the avoidance of doubt, guests are requested to leave the property in a reasonable condition, consistent with the property's appearance upon arrival. Guests are respectfully requested not to move the beds in bedrooms 3 & 4. In the event that the owners, or their appointed housekeepers, have to spend additional time tidying up after your departure, then the cost of this extra time may be deducted from your security deposit. The security deposit is payable prior to arrival at the property, via a bank transfer or a valid debit or credit card.
The maximum occupancy of the property is eight guests, 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 eight guests at the property.
Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by one additional infant.
Up to two large dogs, over one year old, are accepted, at a cost of £20 per booking per dog.
For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure.
Bed linen and towels
Bed linen and towels are provided for guests.

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
The second floor of the property is in the eaves. Restricted height in the second family bathroom may be inconvenient for tall guests. The Velux windows in the second floor bedrooms have opening restrictors fitted and keys are available to open them in the event of an emergency.
The property has multiple floors and there is a step in the garden area, 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 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.
Hen, Stag and other same sex groups
Unfortunately, Hen, Stag and other same sex groups are not allowed at Honeysuckle Cottage.
If you would like to enquire as part of a same sex group, please contact us, as these may be accepted at the sole discretion of the property owner. Please note that same sex family groups are welcome.
The property is not suitable for loud parties, as there are neighbouring residential properties close by.
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.
