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 Oxfordshire

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

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Clean, tidy, well appointed. Everything you need for a short break or more! The property details well represent what you should expect so I won't repeat everything. We arrived in the dark so missed the entrance twice but that was probably my fault.

I strongly recommend you try the Plough Inn, Alvescot. It's less than a mile away but amazing - we went both nights- but check if you need to book. We were lucky and they squeezed us in!

Witney is lovely and Burford Garden Centre amazing - it's more like a shopping village.

Fabulous couple of days - even the cold weather couldn't dampen our spirits - we'll definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. We are really delighted that you had a good time. The Plough is excellent and many of our guests eat there and all agree. You can walk there too along the public footpath if you feel energetic! Our son even does the odd shift there while he is studying, so he knows how professional they are. We would be pleased to welcome you back and if the weather is warmer, you might try the Wildlife Park, which makes for a lovely day out and it's 5 minutes away. Justine & Andrew Garbutt

Super little cottages

  • 5 of 5

Spent a couple of nights with friends in The Granary & Guest suite, they were both lovely. They are equipped with everything you need, nicely laid out & set in beautiful countryside. Will definitely use this place again.
