About the property

The Stables and The Granary

We offer flexibility, with the ability to offer one double room for short stays, up to accommodating a large party or extended families in both our cottages. We can offer any number of bedrooms up to a total of 8. Do ask advice if you need extra rooms or if you are unsure about anything. We want our visitors to be comfortable and fully understand what they are getting.

We have 2 cottages and 2 suites.

The cottages are listed under 8128305. The Stables Cottage has is 3 bedrooms (a king, a double and a twin sleeping 6 as standard), with a shower room downstairs and a bathroom upstairs. It can be offered with the Hayloft to add a 4th bedroom, which can be interconnecting via the staircase area or locked off. See below. There are sofa beds in the lounge and in the twin bedroom too, both suitable for 1 extra. There’s a cot (in the twin although we have a travel cot, if you need a cot in a different room- please advise) and a high chair. However, we recommend that the cottage is only suitable for large parties using both sofa beds and the Hayloft, which could include 10 people, for short stays, due to the limitations of the reception area. The dining table extends to seat 8 and there’s a small extra table to add on the end to seat 2 more, plus a breakfast bar for 2. There are 2 sofas in the lounge area, but another sofa and TV in both the twin room and also the Hayloft, which also has a kitchenette and en-suite shower room.

The Granary Cottage has 2 bedrooms (a double and a twin sleeping 4 as standard), with one bathroom. There is a sofa bed in the double bedroom, suitable for 1 extra person and a cot (in the double, although we have a travel cot, if you need to put a cot in a different room- please advise) and a high chair. The dining room extends to seat 6 and there’s a breakfast bar for 2. The lounge has a sofa and 2 easy chairs and there is a reading chair in the double bedroom.

The Saddlery Suite is listed under 8167093. It's a separate double suite (sleeping 2 as standard), en-suite room adjacent to the Granary & Stables cottages, but not interconnecting. However, it can be interconnected with or locked off from the Hayloft, as there is a linking staircase. It has its own external access door. It has a seating area with a TV and sofa, which is also a sofa bed, suitable for 1 extra person. It also has a kitchenette and wet room. It has a ramped access and is wheelchair friendly. We can put a travel cot in there if needed- please advise.

The Hayloft Suite is a separate king suite (sleeping 2 as standard), en-suite room adjacent to the cottages. It can be interconnected with the Stables or locked off and similarly with the Saddlery, in both cases via a staircase. It has a kitchenette and a small adjacent seating area, with a TV and sofa, which is also a sofa bed, suitable for 1 extra person. It also has a shower room. We can put a travel cot in there if needed- please advise.

For short stays, when the cottages are booked and when guests are unable to find other accommodation, perhaps at short notice, we do offer an extra room adjacent to and accessed via the Saddlery. It can be set up as a single or twin, so larger parties can stay even when the cottages are booked. If you wish to consider this option, let us know.

We can sleep 14 as standard in the 7 bedrooms in the 2 cottages and 2 suites, plus 2 in the extra twin if needed, bringing the total to 16 in beds. In total there are 5 sofa beds- 2 in the Stables and 1 in each of the Granary, Saddlery & Hayloft. Therefore, we can sleep up to 21 with all units, the extra twin and all sofa beds in use. Sofa beds are £25 per night. Cottage and suite rates are as quoted and vary seasonally. Pet supplements are £30 per pet total.

We have tried to be as flexible as possible in terms of the party size we can accommodate and in providing a space where extended families or friends can get together, but enjoy some separation. At the same time, we can accommodate a number of separate groups.

Together, the cottages are great for a large extended family gathering of 20 plus people, with family groups able to be socialise, whilst enjoying separate facilities.

There is a large games room with books and games, fitness equipment, darts, pool and table tennis. There is also an additional extra large washing machine and dryer in the games room, plus a chest freezer. It's a useful communal space.

There is parking for 7 cars between our 2 cottages, but we can provide over spill parking if needed, so there is ample space for large groups. There are gardens with seating and a stone built BBQ. You never have to worry about finding somewhere to park your car!

If anyone in your party has disabilities, please let us know and provide details, as we would wish to discuss your particular requirements and jointly assess the suitability of our cottages. We have at times agreed to move rugs and furniture to increase space where that would help. We have downstairs facilities and access via wide doors and the Saddlery has ramps and a wet room, but there is a threshold at the entrance doors and there may be other limitations depending on need. We have had guests in wheelchairs stay comfortably, but suitability depends on the age of the guest (for instance, children can be lifted) and the particular disability and the support available within the party group. We recognise that holidays are so important and we would want to ensure that our property would not present problems for any of our guests.

Our traditional Cotswold stone cottages are surrounded by open countryside in the stunning Shilbrook Valley. The historic towns of Bampton and Burford are less than a 10 minute drive away and the beautiful villages of Alvescot and Shilton are within a mile. Both these villages have terrific pubs which can be reached by public footpaths and bridleways. There are great opportunities for walkers and cyclists, both locally and throughout the region. The cottages are close to Burford, Witney Lakes and Lynham Golf Courses and there are horse riding stables near by. There are spectacular landscapes and wildlife for artists and photographers. Ty Nant Cottages are within easy reach of the superb shopping centres of Oxford, Cheltenham and Bicester Retail Village and just five minutes from the fabulous Cotswold Wildlife Park. Cogges Farm in Witney is close by, as is Blenheim Palace in Woodstock.

Although rural, local shops, restaurants and takeaways are 5 minutes away by car or 20 minutes on foot. Delivery services are available.

About Andrew Garbutt

I live in the West Oxfordshire Cotswolds with my wife and three children. My wife and I both work, but really enjoy coming home to our converted 18th Century Barn in the parish of Alvescot. Most of our free time is spent ferrying our three children around West Oxfordshire for their sports, music and social commitments.

Andrew Garbutt purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Andrew Garbutt chose West Oxfordshire District

We bought Ty Nant, our 18th Century gabled porch Cotswold stone barn as a complete wreck! Within two years we created a lovely family home and two beautiful holiday cottages. We have lived in the Cotswolds for nearly twenty years and love this area.

The Cotswolds is one of the most beautiful parts of England with its green and rolling countryside and the charming stone cottages and pubs. It is a haven for walkers, cyclists, and those who just wish to relax in a charming country pub or restaurant.

The historic cities of Oxford and Cheltenham are within easy reach, as are some of the most beautiful villages in England. Burford, Bibury, Broadway and the Barringtons are all worth visiting to experience the charm and tranquillity of the Cotswolds

What makes this cottage unique

Burford with its historic and famous High Street is one of the "must visit" places in the Cotswolds with its impressive Church and quaint shops, restaurants and pubs. Other villages worth visiting include Alvescot, Shilton, Swinbrook, Chipping Norton, Clanfield and Lechlade.

There are spectacular landscapes for artists and on wet days an outbuilding is available for indoor painting. Burford, Witney Lakes and Lyneham Golf Courses are all within easy reach and there are other leisure facilities at Carterton, Chipping Norton and Witney.

The world famous Cotswold Wildlife Park is a five minute drive away and the Cogges Farm museum is a twenty minute drive. Blenhiem Palace and the village of Woodstock is a twenty minute drive away

Perfect set up in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect, a lovely location with excellent layout and finished to a high level. The owners were really flexible and accommodating to our needs, and left you feeling they truly had your interests at heart and wanted you to enjoy your time in the cottage. I would highly recommend.

Fantastic Clean Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our entire experience with this property was fantastic from the moment we made contact to the day we left. The home was in a wonderful location, central to all we wanted to do in the Cotswolds. The home was clean spacious and well furnished. The game room and laundry facilities we great. The horses and fields around the home were perfect, but the best part was the paths right out our front door. We went on morning and evening walks to villages and towns. The grocery store was a 2 minute drive away and was well stocked. The price was great. We would come back.

Modern, spacious house in the Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

Our family with 3 children ages 7 to 13 stayed here for two nights a few weeks back and we had a great experience. Our first place in England was more rustic so we were all very happy to stay at this modern-style house with wi-fi, was nicely furnished and very spacious. We stayed here as a bridge between our time in the north and then in London. We visited Warwick castle and the way from the north and Stonehenge as we traveled to London.

We briefly met the host a few times during our stay and he was very welcoming and friendly.

The game room was a nice way for us to spend a few hours one night. It includes a pool table, ping pong table, board games, some workout equipment and a VERY nice clothes washer and dryer which served as the one time we did laundry during our week in England.

Also, we REALLY enjoyed a few stops in nearby beautiful Bampton for coffee, groceries and a church used for filming in Downton Abbey. Our biggest regret is probably that we couldn't stay for longer.

As a side note, we really enjoyed eating dinner at Queen’s Head Inn in Stow-on-the-Wold which was on our way to the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. We have tried to keep the inside modern, as the building itself dates back to 1790, yet we feel our guests need comfort and convenience. We are so glad that the mix of old and new worked for you. We are delighted that you had a good time and we do hope you come again in the future. Justine and Andrew Garbutt

An excellent base for our Cotswolds Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Granary for 3 nights to use as a base for our Burford wedding at The Bay Tree Hotel.

The owner Andrew was very welcoming on our arrival, helping us to settle in. We really enjoyed using the games room the evening before the wedding, and it was lovely to have a family meal all together, we felt totally at home. My Mum stayed in the guest room upstairs which she thought was beautiful (the access is still in progress but we were so grateful that the owners could accommodate us with the extra space).

On the morning of the wedding it was lovely to have all of my bridesmaid arriving to have our hair and make up done. Everyone thought the surroundings with the horses right outside were absolutely stunning. I've always loved horse riding, and they all thought it was a lovely coincidence. But it wasn't a coincidence, actually, it was a big factor in booking the property as I'd read about the horses in the reviews and knew I had to stay here!!

The day after the wedding it was lovely to return to the cottage to relax and open all of our gifts and cards. We used the local supermarkets and ate in.

The facilities such the underfloor heating, the dishwasher and the washing machine (including all the tablets and cleaning products you need) were fantastic. There's access to lots of sheets and towels, you really don't need to pack much to stay here!

I 100% recommend this property and I really hope that one day we'll be able to return and spend more time at the cottage and in the surrounding areas.

Many thanks to Andrew, Justine and Ellen for such an enjoyable, friendly, professional and stress-free experience, from the booking to our stay.

Awesome stay and warm hospitality by the ownwer

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one night at the Cottage. Though it was a short stay, the whole family loved the serenity of the place where we had our first experience living in an English country cottage. The cottage was very clean, well furnished, and there was also a small gym and pool table where my son really enjoyed spending time there. Andrew, the owner was very nice. We reached the place very late. We couldn't find the entrance to our cottage as it was already dark, and Andrew was kind enough to lead us to our cottage. The only regret we had was we didn't spend enough time there. We would love to stay again one day.
