The Old Bakery is a converted, period, beamed, detached, stone property that lies near the green in the village of Kingham. An attractive village, situated within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, built predominantly of Cotswold stone with some elegant tiled and thatch roofed cottages.
The village previously won the prestigious title of "England's Favourite Village" as featured in Country Life magazine and was named the best village in England by the Telegraph in 2010. You are within easy walking distance of the well-stocked village shop and post office and the village's two highly recommended local pubs, the Kingham Plough owned by Masterchef semi-finalist Emily Watkins and The Wild Rabbit. For those looking to travel using public transport the property is ideally situated with the village being on the main line from London Paddington, with stops at Oxford, Didcot and Moreton-in-Marsh. The property itself is only four minutes from the station, making it an ideal location from which to explore the local area.
