Quirky Detached House with a big garden in the heart of the Cotswolds

Our house is a converted bungalow in central Charlbury in the heart of the Cotswolds. We have a large kitchen diner (35m2) which opens on to our garden, around a third of an acre with lots of play gear for kids (ours are 6 and 4) including a playhouse, climbing frame and trampoline. In the summer there is also a large paddling pool (3m x 2m) which we keep full, pumped and lightly chlorianated.

Downstairs there is a cosy sitting room with a large telly, a utility room, bathroom, conservatory, kitchen/diner and the master with a small ensuite. Upstairs there are three conjoining double rooms, two of which are set-up for children, so essentially this would suit one large, or two smaller families. We have two cats, who are very friendly that will need feeding during your stay.
