North Cotswold Cottage near Chipping Norton (Oxfordshire) with rural views (Sleeps 6 +) home swap

A spacious North Cotswold family stone cottage with four bedrooms (sleeps 6 + z-bed/mattresses) in one of the Cotswold's highest villages on a quiet village green. It has; a cosy log burner in the lounge; a large, light and spacious oak framed kitchen with a snug overlooking a beautiful English view to the village church across the fields behind. The house enjoys a shower/w.c and twin/double room on the ground floor for those who need ground floor access (2 steps up to kitchen/diner).
A large private front garden full of children's toys and games, and a newly landscaped quiet rear garden with a high sunny terrace with a beautiful view across the fields to enjoy whilst you eat your breakfast or BBQ.
Please note: Our house is a reasonably tidy family home, and though clean, it is not immaculate. We will of course give it a big tidy and spring clean before the swap; The final stages of the re-landscaping of the back garden mean that the path around the side of the house is currently being paved, so there is some building material at the front of the house, that we will make as safe and tidy as possible. The upper terraced area of the back garden is great however! The gated long front garden is a nice, private, wild and wonderful play area for kids games and sports, though the 8ft wide trampoline is no longer netted. There is a very large paddling pool and a large number of varied bicycles and other toys for use, plus easy access to the back field for little explorers!

About the location

Great Rollright is famous for the beautiful Norman church across the field from the cottage and the legends of the Rollright Stones and Circle. It has a well stocked farm shop with a good cafe and nursery. It is 3km to the market town of Chipping Norton (the Cotswold's best kept secret! ) with an eclectic theatre and eating places, varied shopping and antiques, arts and crafts as well as a fabulous heated outdoor pool, leisure centre and golf course.
