Overview

About the property

A charming, self-catering Cotswolds cottage, sleeps 8, no kids under 6, no pets

Sorry but this property is not suitable for children under 6. Best described as a typical 'chocolate box' picture of an English country cottage, this stunning 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, thatched Cotswold's cottage, accommodates 8 people. The original building dates back to the 1650’s and has been sensitively added on to over the years, creating all the benefits of a spacious contemporary home but with many original features. There are two twin bedrooms, one bedroom with a queen size bed and one bedroom with a super king size bed. There are three spectacular bathrooms, two en suite, one family bathroom.

If you are looking for that perfect self-catering holiday in the Cotswolds, you couldn't have chosen a better property. Fox End really is the ultimate quality vacation rental. Whether you are looking for a venue for a family reunion, a luxury base from which to explore this most beautiful part of England, or need a sanctuary to escape your busy daily life and immerse yourself in rural splendour, this house is the one for you.

Fly Fishing: There are ample opportunities for Fly Fishing for trout and grayling in The Cotswolds. From charming still water to elegant chalk streams it's all here. Visit the Orvis store in Burford for up to the minute info on where to fish, what flies to use and how to get permits. There is a great Put 'n' Take lake only 5 minutes drive from the cottage which is in a gorgeous setting and has abundant rainbow and brown trout on two small waters. You can buy a half day or day ticket on site (please, do not hesitate to contact owner for further information or link of the website).

Horse Riding: There is a wonderful riding school 300 yd from the cottage. It is excellent for both beginners and small children as well as the more experienced rider who may wish to canter out into the Cotswold countryside and see the local rural splendour first hand. Do please contact us for more details at the time of booking.

What to do in the Cotswolds: We have many years experience of all the Cotswolds has to offer. That quaint pub with excellent ales and home cooked food, the dates of the best local markets, the whereabouts of the best butcher, ideas for young children, where you can get the best spa treatment (yes, spa treatment!) we can help you. Please ask for our 'What To Do In The Cotswolds' info sheet and we will arm you with everything you could possibly need for a successful stay at Fox End and The Cotswolds.

Perfect country home

  • 5 of 5

Charming, comfortable and well equipped, this English stone house was in the perfect location to enjoy the lovely Cotswolds. Isolated and quiet, yet minutes from all the best villages, we felt we were in a different world the moment we arrived. Thanks for everything.

Charming, stylish, large genuine Cotswolds cottage.

  • 5 of 5

I am not poetic enough to rate this cottage with any justice. This property was exactly what we were hoping it would be and much more. It came equipped with very high end furnishing and decor. All the modern convenience mixed perfectly with old world Cotswolds charm.

The location was great. We were easily able to drive to all the touristy sites. The property was even more enhanced by three friendly sheep outside the windows.

There was a restaurant 4 minutes away, The Greedy Goose, with great food and an equally great staff. There is a large grocery near the house too.

Absolutely amazing Cotswold thatched cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful property and truly didn’t want to leave. The pictures don’t do it justice! The house was very comfortable and charming and the location was terrific. We were able to make many day trips as well as visiting Chastleton House a short walk away. I especially loved the views from the windows including neighboring sheep and cows as well as fields and hills in the distance. The location was a perfect blend of rural but very accessible to neighboring towns and villages. We also found Marcus to be very pleasant to deal with and Marcus and Laetitia clearly love their home and made it feel very warm and welcoming! We hope to visit again one day!

A gem in the heart of the Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing 2 weeks at Fox End this summer. The cottage is even more beautiful in real life than in the pictures. Old charm with all the modern amenities. From before we arrived the owner 's instructions were clear and that made our arrival super smooth and easy. The handbook provided was very useful and recommendations spot on especially for dining. The location is great and provides easy access to all the little beautiful towns. The peace and quiet provided were like nothing I've ever experienced... we look forward to returning to Fox End for sure !

Immaculate, sumptuously furnished, sublimely comfortable

We hosted a series of British relatives as if we were in our home in Cambridge. It was a treat for them and for us.

Car: recommended

Fox End Cottage is located in Chastleton, 4 miles from Moreton In Marsh, in the most beautiful part of the Northern Cotswolds, 75 miles NW of London. The house is perfectly situated for sightseeing some of rural England's greatest gems. Shakespeare's Stratford Upon Avon, the splendid seat of the Spencer Chuchill family at Blenheim Palace, the ancient city with the fairytale castle at Warwick, the pretty picture postcard Cotswold villages and towns like Chipping Camden, Stow On The Wold, Moreton In Marsh, Lower Slaughter and Bourton On The Water are all within close range. Visit the world famous gardens at Hidcote or walk round the corner from the cottage to our own hamlet's National Trust property, Chastleton House (1602). Have a day in the gorgeous university town of Oxford (only 35 min by car) and don't forget to stop in the film set village of Woodstock on the way there or back.

Only two miles up the road you will find the incredible Daylesford Organic Farm Shop and Spa.
