What The Press Say About Our Cottages

I wasn't expecting it to be quite so gorgeous, so ultra-cool, in fact, a million miles away from anything you might associate with a traditional Cotswold Cottage and rather more akin to a Scandinavian lodge where the design and decor is kept minimally contemporary, white and bright. - The Chestnuts - Oxfordshire Limited Editions Magazine Homes and Interiors

Eco-luxury and style are the main selling points for this well equipped, chic and family friendly Cotswold Gem. While it is conveniently located near several large attractions, you may simply want to stay put and enjoy the pretty garden. With plenty of scope for privacy, its ideal for groups. When it's cold, curl up by the wood-burner in the main sitting room and play a  board game. When the weather is fair the garden has lots of outdoor seating. - The Chestnuts -The Telegraph Travel

Quintessential Cotswolds village cottage. The Chestnuts is a stunning village cottage for eight. And, with two lounges

 that each come with their own TV it means there will be no arguing over the remote control.

Grandparents can have time on their own in this spacious country five star cottage. It comes with a well equipped

kitchen, four double bedrooms, two lounges and three spacious bathrooms. There's also a private garden with BBQ,

 dining  table and loungers perfect for sundowners and lazy summer suppers.

Younger children will be kept entertained with the books and toys that are provided. Walks over the fields can be

 enjoyed direct from the door. Families can also cycle through the rolling countryside from here or explore nearby

 attractions including: Blenheim Place, The Ashmoleum Museum and the Bicester Outlet Village. There's also a pub

 within walking distance. - The Express

What You Say about The Chestnuts


Thank you so much for creating The Chestnuts as the most perfect holiday cottage. The family consisted of great Granny (85) down to baby Jasper (2 months), Mum and Dad, Grandma and Granddad and single Uncle - who loved the Bose sound system. As we prepared for a family wedding, Mum was able to make the wedding cake, Grandma loved the incredibly well equipped kitchen, as we hosted supper parties for relatives, uncle was impressed with the BBQ and our two year old appreciated the childrens books and toys. Whenever we looked for something that you would have at home our comment was always 'this is the sort of cottage where they would have thought of that'. Examples included Grandma looking for a radio in the kitchen (I always listen to Women's Hour when cooking) which of course was there, to the last minute panic of getting ready for the wedding and needing safety pins (naturally they were there and easily found!) Great showers, fabulous products in the bathrooms, gorgeous fluffy robes, comfy beds and sumptuous pillows. I think you may have worked out that we loved The Chestnuts and we would love to come back.

What a delight. A fantastic few days with lots of walking, eating, sleeping, talking, laughing ...couldn't ask for anything better. The cottage is perfect, difficult to leave the blazing log fire...think we will have to take it with us.


Really Sensational cottage to spend Christmas. We loved the stylish decorations, winter walks and enjoyed a few of the fantastic nearby pubs.


Lovely place to spend New Year, memorable points - the blazing log burner, sharp global knives; we needn't have brought one of ours, an all time 1st!, Very Comfortable beds, kids slept in everyday.


Thank you so much for an absolutely amazing weekend The Cottage is beautiful and we loved all the finishing touches.


What an amazing, welcoming cottage. We have all had the most relaxed, enjoyable and comfortable stay we could have wished for...and now we don't want to go home. Every comfort and facility has given so much thought.  The village is gorgeous, the views wonderful and the pub very atmospheric. As a group who love to cook and entertain, your kitchen is equipped with the most impressive array of tools and aids we have ever known. Can't wait to come back.


All the little touches make such a difference, everything is amazing quality and the bathtub is the best i've soaked in!


 A really thoughtfully put together space to come and stay.


Sad to be leaving today after a lovely relaxing week. The cottage is beautiful - we have spent a lot of time on the floor with our crawling baby and the under-floor heating was much enjoyed. Visited Witney, Burford and The Cotswold Wildlife Park (brilliant).


Very comfortable, cosy stay, in a gorgeous well stocked house. The swan was lovely, very welcoming and child-friendly. The kids had a whale of a time.


A lovely stay in a really well resourced cottage.


Stunning - if the cottage goes missing - we have it.


 What can I say? We had such a fantastic time at The Chestnuts. Everyone loved it - adults and children alike.


The interior design, decor, furnishings and garden are stunning. The white washed walls and stone make it such a relaxing environment. Even though we were 10 people, the rooms/ garden seating areas are so well organised that we never felt on top of each other. You could have a few people reading in the living area while others were cooking or enjoying a glass of wine in the garden. Our every need was anticipated. We really cannot think of anything to change or improve.


This is easily one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in.


Once again another fantastic long weekend. This was our first stay at The Chestnuts and we loved the cottage. We thought Culls Cottage was amazing when we stayed there last year. We are fussy guests but we had everything we needed, which makes a stay so much more enjoyable. The food and welcome at The Rose and Crown pub in the village was superb.


This is our fourth year of booking an Autumn break at one of your cottages and it's my favourite weekend of the year.

Featured as one of The Coolest Cottages in The Cotswolds 

The Guardian Travel Section Inside the three bedroom property all is calmness and serenity, with flagstones floors, a woodburning stove, underfloor heating (one of several eco features) and clean white walls offset by exposed stone and wooden beams. If the setting is historic, the styling isn't. Furnishings are crisp and modern with a leaning towards luxury (wine glasses are Riedel, the kitchen is home to an espresso machine, smellies are organic and there are toys and books for children, plus cot and high chair.
