Spring Cottage is a Cotswold stone property in an idyllic and enviably quiet location on the edge of the village, with a beautiful outlook over neighbouring gardens to fields beyond.
It has many character features including exposed beams and timbers, stripped pine floors and doors, painted stone walls and an attractive fireplace. A delightful and peaceful country retreat to relax with your family.
Enjoy a lovely meal or a pint at the Lamb Inn, a local historic Cotswold pub which is just down the lane, a little gem, awarded Pub Of The Year by The Times in 2021.
We are in Shipton Under Wychwood, in West Oxfordshire, a 1.5 hour drive from London, but if you don't want to drive, there's a train every hour that connects London to Kingham, which is just 10 minutes away.
Shipton-under-Wychwood sits in the middle of many remarkable towns of the Cotswolds such as Burford, Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh, Bourton-on-the-Water and Woodstock.
In addition to some hidden gems that you’ve probably never heard of such as Old Minster with its ancient leaning buildings, The Slaughters and The Barringtons with quaint villages and endless Cotswold fields.
Shipton-under-Wychwood itself is rich with history, and is perfectly positioned to venture to other stunning areas of the Cotswolds. A term for the area is ‘The Wychwoods’ which consists of Shipton-under-Wychwood, Milton-under-Wychwood and Ascott-under-Wychwood and vaguely includes the surrounding villages. The area was once the site of a hunting forest called the Wychwood Forest, hence the name. Here Henry VII and other Tudor monarchs would hunt for sport.
Today, Wychwood Forest is considerably smaller, but the villages in the Evenlode valley supply endless possibilities for soaking up the history and culture.
Claudia’s cottage is the perfect place for a Cotswolds escape. Lovely sized cottage, really quiet but not far from everything. We loved the suggestions for walks and local pubs and had a great stay - great host and great accommodation, we’ll be back!
Claudia was so helpful and friendly, and the house was absolutely beautiful. So clean and tidy and we were made to feel very welcome. It’s a lovely area with lots of walks and wild swimming to do - we have such a lovely weekend here
Our stay in Spring Cottage was fantastic. The cottage itself is lovely - pretty, clean, and a good size. It's in a beautiful location in a really cute village, with lots of places to visit within a short drive, great pubs/restaurants, and gorgeous country walks. Claudia was really friendly and responsive. Highly recommend!
Very nice quaint cottage in a lovely location. it comes with all the usual country cottage quwerks. With the fire going it became the ideal place to hide away. Would recommend to a friend.
We had a brilliant weekend staying here. It’s a beautiful cottage in a great location. It has all of the things that you need. Thank you
This is the best Air BnB I've stayed in! Really beautiful and homey decor. Great log burner. Comfortable beds, wonderful kitchen equipped with everything you need to cook a big meal. Quiet and lovely location. Claudia the host was extremely welcoming, helpful and available at all times with any questions. Cannot recommend this cottage enough. Super close to lots of beautiful Cotswold villages and with lovely country walks nearby.
