About The Manor Cottage

The Manor Cottage is a deceptively simple sounding name for what is a spacious and elegant property with space to sleep up to 14 guests in five bedrooms. The layout makes it ideal for large or extended families and groups of friends, with eight further properties available on The Cotswold Manor Estate to accommodate larger parties, including stag and hen weekends. The Lord Kitchener gastropub and restaurant is in nearby Witney, just a mile away from the estate and a relaxed 20-minute stroll.

The Cotswold Manor Estate is in a fantastic location, close to some of the best-loved sights and attractions in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Close by is Bampton which was used extensively as a filming location for the popular TV series, Downton Abbey. In addition to sights which will be familiar to fans of the show, like Church View and St Mary's Church, the village has a fantastic butcher who can tell you the provenance of the cuts of meat they sell, a small but well-stocked supermarket, and an antiques centre.

Blenheim Palace demands a full day to explore its magnificent rooms, beautiful treasures and stunning gardens. One of its most famous residents, Sir Winston Churchill, is buried modestly in the nearby town of Woodstock where there is a good variety of cafes, restaurants and pubs. Other Cotswold attractions within easy reach of The Manor Cottage include The Cotswold Wildlife Park, Kelmscott Manor and Aston Pottery, as well as the National Trust's Buscot Park. Favourite Cotswold towns and villages like Stow-on-the-Wold, Upper and Lower Slaughter, and Bourton-on-the-Water are all within half an hour's drive, while Oxford's ancient spires are just 20 miles away, welcoming visitors with centuries of history in addition to excellent shops and lots of places to eat and drink.

Guests of The Manor Cottage have access to the extensive grounds and gardens of the Cotswold Manor Estate, which include 70 acres of parkland, vineyard, orchard, ponds, woodland, and flat mown fields that can be used for a variety of games and activities. There is a three-mile nature walk around the perimeter where visitors can expect to see a variety of birds including buzzards, sparrow hawks, red kites, woodpeckers, egrets and the beautiful but elusive kingfisher.

The manager of the estate wants to ensure your holiday reaches beyond your expectations and is happy to make recommendations for local caterers and businesses so that you can plan something to keep everyone happy whether you are a group of five or 55!
