About Ben's Burrow

Ben's Burrow is a favourite with families who love staying in a holiday home with loads of space and lots of luxurious touches. Though its name implies subterranean, it's a light, bright, spacious wooden lodge with two-story accommodation. It has views of a duck and koi carp pond, an outdoor hot tub, and a floating outdoor geodesic living area complete with a telescope and a day bed for snuggling under the stars. There is ample space for nine people in four bedrooms, including a self-contained flat for teenagers or grandparents, plus room for an infant. Ben's Burrow is on the family-run Winchcombe Farm in Upper Tysoe, just over a mile from the village shop, cafe, and 15th-Century Peacock Inn pub.

Upper Tysoe is in the north Cotswolds. It's a picturesque village with pretty thatched honey-stone cottages that typify the best of Cotswold architecture. The surrounding Warwickshire countryside is lovely for walking and cycling in all seasons. Local paths lead to Upton House and Gardens, Edgehill, Winderton, Shenington, Oxhill, Whatcote, and Epwell. Further afield, you can visit Broadway Tower and Batsford Arboretum and Gardens. Bicycle hire is readily available, and guided bike tours of the Cotswolds are becoming an increasingly popular way for visitors to explore with the help of a local expert.

Being in the north Cotswolds puts you easily within reach of famous places like Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold, scenic Upper Slaughter, and Chipping Norton. However, you're also within half an hour or less of Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwick Castle, and Royal Leamington Spa. Fill your days with a vast choice of attractions, including Shakespeare's Birthplace, the Stratford Butterfly Farm, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and Warwick Castle. Within around an hour are Bicester Designer Shopping Outlet, Blenheim Palace, and the ancient city of Oxford. With such a massive choice of places to see and things to do, the Cotswolds is a fantastic all-season holiday destination.

Ben's Burrow is one of six superb self-catering properties at Winchcombe Farm. Each one is unique and wonderful, providing a high standard of accommodation with charming quirks remaining with you as happy memories long after you leave.

Accommodation Comprises:

Ben's Burrow is wonderfully spacious with a stylish and practical combination of open-plan living areas for socialising, and a warren of cosy rooms for relaxing in peace. The layout works well for big families or extended families, with a separate granny flat providing the ideal space for teenagers or grandparents.


  • Entry is via the welcoming kitchen, a place you'll spend many happy hours cooking, eating and chatting in a leisurely way that normal life never allows time for. Appliances include a dishwasher, an American-style fridge/freezer, oven/grill, and SMEG kettle and toaster, as well as a full complement of pots, pans, equipment and utensils to cook and serve meals. The owners thoughtfully provide a basket of local goodies so you can put the kettle on and feel settled as soon as you arrive. A long dining table seats 10.
  • At the other end of the kitchen/diner is a seating area with big sofas, a 55-inch Smart TV with a DVD player, and a glazed door that opens onto the deck.
  • Bedroom One is a big double room with space for a travel cot. It's perfect for parents and even has a Teasmade if you're awake for night time feeds.
  • Bedroom Two has a kingsize bed, proper storage, and an ensuite with a shower, heated towel rail, WC and a handbasin.


  • Family/triple room with a kingsize bed and a single bed. All beds are made up for the arrival of guests using lovely linens so all you need to do is fall into bed at the end of a busy day for a luxuriously sound sleep.
  • Bathroom with a bath, power shower, WC and a handbasin,

Studio Flat: Climb the external stairs by the living room to the self-contained studio flat complete with two single beds and a well-equipped kitchenette with a washing machine. The bathroom has a bath with a hand-held shower attachment, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: The exterior space is as impressive as the interior of Ben's Burrow. The big deck has a leafy outlook with seating, a barbecue and a pizza oven. There is also a hot tub, a pond with a beach, and a floating geodesic dome with a daybed, seating and a telescope for watching the stars. It's heated, so you can enjoy it all year round. There is off-street parking a short walk from the cottage and an enclosed garden with lawn and sun loungers.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are included. Short breaks are possible, depending on availability. Smoking and pets are not permitted.
