About the property

Charming Cottage ,sleeps 5 - views over thatched cottages and open fields

This beautiful Victorian cottage has been renovated to a high standard and provides a perfect base for exploring the North Cotswolds, Stratford, Warwick, Oxford and surrounding areas.

There is a large sitting room complete with original Victorian oven and working fireplace, a characterful kitchen/dining room, small sun room and three bedrooms with beams. The bathroom has a lovely roll-top bath and a separate shower and is lined with travertine tiles. Underfloor heating will keep you warm in the cooler months.

The charming garden, complete with arbour, has lovely views over fields and the front rooms overlook thatched cottages. Situated in a friendly, peaceful village which includes Farnborough Hall, a National Trust property (with adjoining lake )and a great gastro pub, there are also some lovely walks nearby. Lavender Cottage is easily accessed by the M40 and yet is in the heart of the English countryside.

About The Owner

Terry is an architect and Christine works with children from deprived backgrounds. We live in one of the neighbouring villages.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why The Owner chose Stratford-Upon-Avon area

We live in the next village and have always loved Farnborough with its National Trust hall and lovely walks down by the lake.

The village is pretty and very friendly and it has a great gastro-pub, the Country Kitchen at Farnborough. Wonderful teas are also held regularly in the Village Hall run by the villagers when Farnborough hall is open. The cakes are not to be missed - we went there rather too often when renovating the cottage!

What makes this cottage unique

Our guests love the original Victorian range in the sitting room and the roll-top bath in the bathroom. We like being able to watch the cows come home from the kitchen sink and just sitting out at the front of the house watching village life pass by.

Our younger guests like the village playground and seeing the local donkey being taken for walks!

Farnborough has excellent road connections and you can visit a myriad of places of interest in under an hour's drive.

An excellent 'Home away from Home'

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this well appointed Cottage with good space and Facilities.We have lived in Vancouver for 50 years and enjoyed the opportunity to entertain our Cousins. We were there on a Saturday so appreciated the Tea and Cakes at the Village hall, and a Gluten Free one for me. !! Enjoyed walking the Tow Path and a Meal at the Wharf inn at Fenny Compton and got blown away up Beacon Tower on Burton Dassett Hills

Lavender Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Rather a lot to recommend at Lavender Cottage, which is a traditional cottage in a village. Close by is a Gastro Pub. Twice weekly shopping van visits this village.

A wealth of historical places to visit nearby, such as Upton House.

Cottage itself has comfortable beds, a real fire and the kitchen is well equipped for real cooking, plus a small garden with washing line.

The owners are very accommodating and friendly.

I would return here and will recommend it to my friends; The icing on the cake was the sighting of a heron on the local pond.
