  • 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

This duo of thoughtfully designed holiday cottages is the ideal solution for accommodating family groups up to 14. It is also set in a lovely rural location.

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.

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

Amazing place! The welcome pack was most generous. Everything about the venue was of a very high standard. The bathrooms were exceptional, the living area most comfortable for all 10 of us to spread out and the patio area a most welcome addition.

We hired both Orchard Barn and Thames View to celebrate a significant family birthday and Christmas. There were 10 of us at our largest and having both properties was perfect as it gave everyone enough space to relax.

We had a fantastic 7 day stay at Orchard Barn and Thames View. 10 of us found the 2 cottages spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped so that we could eat together and socialise inside and outside. The welcome pack was a nice touch and the owners even turned up with fans for us due to the hot weather.
