Old Manor Cottage is a beautiful Grade II listed cottage that dates all the way back to the 17th century and sits peacefully in the large grounds of the owner's manor house. The cottage is located on a quiet lane in the small village of Halford, on the north-eastern edge of the Cotswolds, surrounded by stunning countryside. There is a shop and a pub in the village, and the famous Cotswold market towns of Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh are both within 10 miles, with their wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants. William Shakespeare's birthplace of Stratford-upon-Avon is also less than 10 miles away, and many other attractions are within easy reach, including Warwick Castle, Blenheim Palace and Oxford, as well as the many stately homes and gardens located in the north Cotswolds.
This charming thatched cottage has a lovely cosy feel, with many character features, including exposed beams, oak doors and an open fire. Modern facilities including wireless internet access, a TV with DVD player, and a well-presented kitchen complement the character of the property.
Old Manor Cottage sleeps three people in two adjoining bedrooms, with one bathroom and a ground floor cloakroom. The cottage has off street parking and sits in three acres of beautifully maintained gardens, which run down to the picturesque River Stour. There is a tennis court in the grounds, which may be used by prior arrangement with the owner. Old Manor Cottage is a perfect choice for a couple or a small family looking for a relaxing break in beautiful surroundings.

Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than three 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 up to two additional infants.

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.
