About The Corner House

The Corner House embodies all your dreams of a picture-perfect English country holiday cottage. The Grade II listed property was built in 1544 and is a short walk from the centre of the highly desirable Cotswold village of Kingham. It has a thatched roof, exposed beams, thick stone walls and a mature garden full of colourful flowers - you may never want to leave! While it is large enough to sleep seven guests in four bedrooms, the cottage’s proportions and charming interior are perfect for couples as well as families and friends who want a taste of English village life, even if just for a short while.

Kingham was voted “England’s Best Village” by Country Life Magazine, and in an area renowned for attractive villages, that’s certainly some accolade. At the heart of this vibrant and friendly place is a well-stocked village shop, only a five minute walk from The Corner House. Two excellent restaurants, The Wild Rabbit and The Kingham Plough, are an easy 5 and 15-minute walk respectively and The Fox at Oddington is a short drive, together with the Kings Head at Bleddington (which is also within walking distance for lunch, albeit three and a half miles each way). The village also has a large open green, and there is a mainline train station on the village outskirts with a good service from London.

It is hard to find a more perfect location for a stay in the Cotswolds. Leave the car at the station and jump on the train to explore Oxford, called the “city of dreaming spires” by poet Matthew Arnold. The beautiful city with its wealth of historic buildings is only thirty minutes away. Closer to home, Chipping Norton and Stow on the Wold are less than five miles from The Corner House, while Broadway, Cirencester, Woodstock and Stratford-upon-Avon are between a thirty and forty minute drive through gorgeous scenery.

From The Corner House you can easily reach attractions like Blenheim Palace, Tewkesbury Abbey, the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens, the Royal Gardens at Highgrove in Tetbury (owned by HRH Prince Charles) and Sudeley Castle. The area is known for the quality and beauty of its walks, and there are several paths that run through the village, including routes to Stow on the Wold, Bleddington, Chipping Norton and Churchill.

If you’ve been dreaming of a Cotswold holiday that lives up to the images you’ve seen on postcards and in guide books, look no further than The Corner House.

Location (The Cotswolds)

Accommodation Comprises:

The Corner House is made from beautiful honey coloured Cotswold stone and retains many original features including flagstone floors, exposed thick oak beams and a large fireplace. The owners have carefully updated the property with modern touches like central heating, without losing any of its charm.


  • The spacious living room has ample seating, with three large couches angled towards the open fireplace, and a separate arm chair. Dual aspect windows provide natural light and garden views during the day, while a thick rug and heavy curtains keep it cosy on winter evenings.
  • A combined kitchen/dining room is ideal for relaxed meals with family and friends. The fitted kitchen has all mod-cons including a dishwasher and microwave, while the long dining table provides extra space for preparing meals and seats eight with ease.


All four bedrooms are upstairs, each furnished in a style that complements the age and character of the cottage, and have windows with deep sills that overlook the garden.

  • Main bedroom with king sized bed, bedside tables and reading lights, and a wardrobe for storage.
  • Additional king-size bedroom with wall-mounted television and en-suite walk-in shower (plus WC and double wash basin).
  • Bedroom with comfortable double bed decorated in charming blue and white toile du jouy.
  • Fourth bedroom ideal for a single adult or child, with a single bed and chest of drawers.
  • Family bathroom with a large bath with shower attachment (for use by hand only as there is a sloping ceiling that prevents you standing), hand basin and WC.

Outside: The mature cottage gardens are the vision of award winning designer, Marion Ackrill. There are three main spaces: a large garden with table and chairs comfortably seat six; a smaller patio area at the rear of the cottage which has more seating and benefits from the sun almost all day; and a small front garden with a bench. A separate utility room provides a place to dry wet coats and muddy wellies, and houses a fridge/freezer. On street parking is usually available out the front of the cottage.

Additional Information: There is WiFi and central heating throughout the property. All towels, linen and utilities are included. Logs and coal for the fire can be ordered in advance for an additional cost. The property is strictly no smoking due to the thatched roof. Sorry but no pets. All male and all female parties are not normally accepted.

Prices: Short breaks and a flexible changeover day are possible depending on availability (three night minimum breaks offered out of peak season or possibly at short notice during peak if available).
