Kite's Gate - Kingham, Oxfordshire, The Cotswolds, England - Sleeps 6

Kite's Gate

Kingham Cottages offers a collection of three luxurious holiday cottages that are located within the stunning grounds of Kingham Lodge. Ideal for couples, families and friends, the cottages are perfect for a long weekend, mid-week break or longer holiday and can be rented together to accommodate larger parties of up to eighteen.

The owners of Kingham Lodge have lived in Kingham, a charming village in the 'golden triangle' of the Cotswolds, for over thirty years and their aim is to provide guests with a taste of Cotswold's life, in a luxurious setting to ensure a memorable stay.

The loft apartment (sleeps four to six guests) and the two holiday cottages (each sleep six guests) have been designed as traditional Cotswold properties with timeless luxurious interiors that are perfectly combined with modern-day conveniences to ensure your stay is enjoyable and relaxing.

Kingham Lodge sits in five acres of beautiful landscaped grounds where guests can enjoy additional facilities that include a wonderful indoor complex with heated swimming pool, lounging area and traditional Turkish Hammam; a tennis court; croquet and the Sequoia Room, a flexible room adjoining the pool which can be used as a cinema room, yoga room or to seat up to thirty people for dining or a business away day.

Located in the heart of Kingham village (which has previously been voted 'England's favourite village'), there is stunning countryside all around for walkers and cyclists to explore. This lovely village has a thriving community, village shop and two excellent pubs (The Kingham Plough and The Tollgate Inn) serving locally brewed ales and gourmet meals for foodies.

The surrounding area offers plenty of attractions and interesting places to visit with Churchill, Chipping Norton, Stow-on-the-Wold and Burford - all within a short drive. For those happy to travel a little further afield, Oxford, Cheltenham, Blenheim Palace, Broadway, Chipping Campden, Batesford, The Slaughters and Stratford-upon-Avon are within easy reach.
