  • Thoughtfully designed complex of two adjoined (not interconnecting) holiday cottages
  • Peaceful rural location a few miles from Bampton for local pubs and small shops
  • 2 Dogs welcome in the large property, but not in the smaller
  • Well-located for exploration of top visitor attractions
Property code: CC060

These two semi-detached cottages on the edge of the Cotswolds are the perfect base for a family or friendship group looking for a countryside retreat within easy reach of shopping and attractions. Catering for 14 across five bedrooms, the main property also welcomes up to two dogs, so there's no need to leave furry family members behind.

The larger house has plenty of space to operate as the central hub for the gathering, with a big entrance hall to leave muddy shoes and coats, and a good-sized kitchen featuring a range oven, microwave and two fridges. The dining area is connected to the kitchen by double doors and seats eight around its chunky pine farmhouse table. Whatever your group dynamic, the bedroom set-up should work, with a collection of king, double and twin bedrooms across the two houses, plus a sofa bed and two additional single beds on request. Older relatives or those looking for a little peace and quiet could take the double room in the smaller house, while everyone else piles into the main property. With two lounges and TVs in most of the bedrooms, there'll be no squabbles over the remote either. The patio garden comes complete with a BBQ, just right for those sunny evenings when cooking inside just doesn't seem right, and with the French doors to the dining room open, anyone who prefers to eat at the table won't feel excluded.

The houses are set in a rural location, surrounded by tranquil fields and countryside. Any walkers in the party can explore the local scenery, or head off on the 2.5 mile trip to nearby Bampton, where die-hard costume-drama fans may recognise some of the buildings from village scenes in Downton Abbey. Bampton also has an excellent art gallery with regular special exhibitions. Groups with children – or animal enthusiasts – shouldn't miss Crocodiles of the World, 7 miles away, and everyone will enjoy an afternoon spent burning off steam in Kilkenny Lane Country Park, 7.5 miles away, with its outdoor playground and plenty of picnicking space. The market town of Witney, 6 miles away, is famous for its woollen blankets and May Day celebrations, and with a good range of shops too, it'll satisfy anyone looking for a spot of retail therapy. It's an easy 17-mile journey to Oxford from the cottage, which has a fantastic calendar of events and entertainment for all ages, including the Natural History Museum which is just the right size for younger kids.

In a tranquil setting, with lots of space, this is the perfect base for a Cotswold break. We were 3 families (4 generations). We had both properties. Lots of kitchen equipment, high chairs and cot as needed , plenty of seating inside and out. Would also suit a group of adults. Highly recommend. For anyone with children, the Cotwsold Wildlife Park iRead mores a must. Hide

For an annual get together of old school friends and partners, Orchard Barn proved to be a perfect place to stay. Clean and cosy, it has every angle covered and we all very quickly felt at home. Host Pippa was also extremely helpful and very responsive to our needs. We hope to return.

Just returned from a week in Orchard Barn and Thames View that was very enjoyable. Nine 'oldies' found it to be spacious and light with modern fittings, plenty of kitchen utensils and enough champagne glasses for all.! We enjoyed eating together in the big window area and there were enough outdoor chairs and cushions for when the sun shone. If you Read moreare going there we had an excellent Chinese takeaway from Mark's kitchen in Bampton. Hide
