Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, this delightful limestone cottage, dating back to 1703, nestles under the Grade 1 listed manor, Chastleton House. The recently refurbished and interior designed cottage, set in just under an acre of stunning landscaped garden, retains much of its original character and charm, with oak beams, curved staircase, inglenook fireplace and mullion windows.
In the centre of the quiet leafy village, the cottage has the original post box set into the entrance pillar to the property: a reminder that the cottage was once the village post office.
Chastleton is the perfect location for friends or family wanting to enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of a small village while having wonderful country pubs and larger villages nearby. The village is home to the Grade 1 listed manor house, Chastleton House owned by the National Trust and is an ideal base from which to explore the Cotswolds. The historic market towns of Stow on the Wold and Moreton in Marsh are only 4 miles away. There are numerous quintessentially English limestone villages within easy reach, Bourton on the Water, Chipping Camden, Broadway and Burford as well as places to visit like Batsford Arboretum and Hidcote Gardens. Stratford-on-Avon and Oxford are a short distance away. Chastleton has much to offer, with horse riding available at the local riding school, a bronze age hill fort to explore and is perfect countryside for cycling and walking.
