Two bedroom cottage near the centre of a delightful Cotswold village
The cottage sits on a country lane that turns into a path which goes down to the pretty stream that meanders its way through the village.
Throughout the cottage the large windows have charming views over the back garden or across the rooftops and gardens to the valley beyond. There is luxury linen on the king size and super king size beds, making it perfect for couples looking for a romantic getaway. Equally the beds can be unzipped to make two twins bedded rooms upon request, and with a sofa bed downstairs, groups of up to five guests can be accommodated but ideally suited for four.

About Hugh Robertson
Becky and Hugh make a living buying properties, converting them to holiday homes and running them. We live in the same village as this holiday home with our two daughters and two dogs.
Hugh Robertson purchased this cottage in 2007
Why Hugh Robertson chose North Oxfordshire
Rose Cottage provides a great base for visiting the Cotswold towns and villages. It is also the mid point between Oxford with its Colleges and museums and Stratford with its Shakespearean history. Blenheim Palace, home of the Dukes of Marlborough and birthplace of Winston Churchill, is a short drive away.
What makes this cottage unique
The Cottage is an 18th Century stone built terrace with modern facilities inside. It is close to the heart of the village so you can walk everywhere yet it is still quiet and secluded.

Happy in Hooky!
Snug, clean, comfortable beds, warm, quiet, with lovely views from bedroom window. Very pleasant setting and extremely satisfying stay in general. Having wi-fi was a Godsend as very ltd mobile 'phone signal in the village.
Pub nearby was ok for dinner but very ltd menu and no veg offered with courses.
Though very loathe to site any negatives, it was a bit hard to find in the dark, (Hook Norton as well as the cottage), we are more accustomed to gas vs electric hob cooking, the shower door didn't seem to 'magnet' closed as many do, and water pressure could be a challenge when one guest washing dishes while another was in the shower.
Regardless, we would happily stay again and in the main had no complaints.
