About the property

Built on the site of the former Waggon & Horses Pub from Cotswold stone, Elba House provides high quality accommodation for families, friends, and their four legged companions, to explore all the Cotswolds and West Oxfordshire has to offer.

Chipping Norton is an attractive and superbly situated small historic market town on the edge of the renowned Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It has numerous amenities including supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, coffee shops, park and can even boast its own lido and theatre.

We are 8 miles from Soho Farmhouse, 10 miles from Woodstock and the majestic Blenheim Palace (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) , 19 miles from Bicester Village, and only 22 miles from the historic centres of Oxford and Stratford-Upon-Avon (both can be reached by bus). It is also a great location for Blenheim Park, Great Tew Park and Cornbury Park events. We are only a short drive from Kingham and Charlbury GWR train stations and numerous stations on the Chiltern Line.

Elba House has generous and flexible bedroom accommodation, a courtyard garden with southerly aspect, 2 private parking spaces and is a very short walk away from Chipping Norton town centre.

Rare for the Cotswolds, Elba House gives you loads of space in the bedrooms, so feel free to swing as many cats as you please (not literally - of course). The master and second bedroom both have king sized beds - no short straws for couples staying together. There is an additional sofa bed in the second bedroom if required.The third bedroom has a full single sized bed.

All beds have the highly rated Silentnight Studio Medium memory foam mattress, microfibre duvets and luxury bed linen.

The second floor ensuite has a shower and separate bath. The first floor bathroom has a bath and over bath shower.

The kitchen has all the cooking facilities you would expect. We have:

- Gas hob and electric cooker

- Microwave

- Dishwasher

- Washer/Dryer

- Fridge & Freezer

- Coffee Machine

The living room is a very comfortable space to socialise with a log burning stove. It also has:

- A Smart TV

- Blu Ray Player & Range of DVDs

- DAB Radio, CD Player & Bluetooth Speaker .

If you need some 'me' time, there is 'music room' with record player and the third bedroom has another T.V. and DVD Player.

We are happy to accept one mutt of most (smaller) varieties on the ground floor of Elba House only, provided they are well behaved and are not left alone.

See our website at

Please note that the property is on a hill, has three storeys and there are steps up to the rear door. Chipping Norton is also plonked right on one of those famous Cotswold 'rolling hills'. If you have mobility issues please do contact us with any questions you have prior to booking.

We do not currently accept cats due to the increased allergy risk for future guests. We do take dogs as they are deemed to be a lower allergy risk and we have dogs of our own. Please bear this in mind if someone in your party is allergic to pets.

Excellent location, relaxed, comfortable with all the mod-cons!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the little extra touches upon arrival to Elba House, it was really lovely after a long car journey to get to what is such a lovely, quaint and historic village. This modern, bright, clean and beautifully presented holiday home was superbly equipped with everything for a relaxing stay! Wonderful bathrooms, comfortable beds, a private outside dining area with BBQ, parking right outside and plenty of local information and Cotswolds magazines were provided. Plus, being less than 5 minutes walk from the Chipping Norton High Street was a real bonus!

We highly recommend Elba House to base yourself for your Cotswolds Getaway!

Beautiful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Elba House was very comfortable, the decor is fresh & homely, we loved the quirky prints framed on the walls too. The tea, coffee, milk & delicious lemon cake were a lovely bonus.

Chipping Norton is an ideal location to stay to explore all parts of the Cotswolds.

Super house, lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this beautiful, spotlessly clean house.

Vicky answered any communication very quickly.

Welcome pack on arrival, great suggestions of things to do/locations of supermarkets etc, very nice soaps in the bathrooms.

We were able to use the barbecue in the sun trap garden.

Overall, fabulous house and would love to come back

Lots of places to eat out in Chipping Norton
Car: not necessary

Chipping Norton offers the best of both worlds - beautiful Cotswold countryside just on your doorstep but not completely stuck out 'in the sticks'.

It is a pocket sized town but packs in a lot. With one foot in the past (the town centre is built of traditional Cotswold stone with old fashioned shops and the beautful Bliss Mill, perched on a hilltop giving you wonderful rolling countryside views) but you also have coffee shops, pubs, restaurants, takeaways, gift shops, supermarkets, lido, leisure centre, a theatre and the modern day wonders of street lights and footpaths! (great for kids, night time dog walks or finding your way back from the pub).

And the locals are generally a lovely and welcoming bunch.

No too far away, there a numerous historical houses and gardens to visit and you can hop on a bus to Oxford, Woodstock or Stratford Upon Avon.
