About The Manor House

The Manor House can sleep up to 22 guests in 7 bedrooms, making it ideal for holidays with your extended family and friends, hen weekends or team building events. It is one of nine fantastic properties on The Cotswold Manor Estate which, when hired together, can accommodate parties of around 150 guests. Coupled with 70 acres of private grounds and a location within walking distance of the popular Lord Kitchener pub near Witney makes this property one not to miss.

Between the parkland, private garden and hot tub, games barn, ponds, streams and woodland, there is no need to even venture off the property. There is enough outdoor space to arrange laser clay pigeon shooting, personal training sessions and team building exercises, and there is more than enough space for running around and playing ball games. However, it would be a shame not to explore the world-famous Cotswolds that is right on your doorstep. Within a short drive are attractions like Blenheim Palace, The Cotswold Wildlife Farm, Cogges Manor Farm and Chedworth Roman Villa. The historic city of Oxford is around half an hour by car, with excellent shopping and places like the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology and Oxford University Museum of Natural History.

Opportunities for shopping and fine dining abound. The Lord Kitchener pub has a private dining room guests can book, or it is also possible to arrange for a private chef to cater in the house. Oxford and the eastern Cotswolds have a wealth of excellent restaurants like the Michelin starred Le Manoir Au Quat’Saisons and Lords of the Manor. Bicester Designer Outlet is a shopaholic's treat, or you could browse the shops of Oxford or the boutiques in Chipping Norton and Stow-on-the-Wold.

Whatever your reason for staying at The Manor House, the high standard of accommodation, excellent location and wonderful variety of facilities and opportunities will ensure that everyone in your party is happily occupied from the moment they arrive until you wave them goodbye.

Location (The Cotswolds)

Accommodation Comprises:

The Manor House is all on one level, with a central living/dining and kitchen area separating two separate wings for sleeping. Some of the bedrooms have single beds that can be zipped together to create a super-kingsized bed. The owners request that guests confirm their preferred layout at least a week before arrival.

  • The living/dining room measures a generous 25 feet x 17 feet, providing ample space for entertaining. High ceilings with exposed beams add to the sense of space, with leather sofas and armchairs giving everyone a place to sit.
  • The dining area has a long table that spans the length of the room and seats 20 guests. Dual aspect windows, flagstone floors and a decorating scheme in pale neutrals make it a pleasant place to dine.
  • Catering for a large group does not have to be a chore in the contemporary kitchen which features all the benefits of a modern kitchen with the charm of a country house. In addition to an electric range cooker, there is a tall American-style fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher.
  • The bedrooms vary in size but are all decorated to a high standard, many with a feature stone wall and some with a television with a DVD player. The entire property has superfast broadband throughout, so guests can use their phones, tablets and laptops.
  • Four of the bedrooms have ensuites with a shower, WC and handbasin. There is also a large family bathroom with a walk-in shower, bath and WC.

Outside: In addition to the 70 acres of grounds on The Cotswold Estate, The Manor House has its own private garden, courtyard patio area with garden furniture and barbecue, and an outdoor hot tub. A separate building provides shared use of a games barn which includes a pool table, table tennis, table football, air hockey and a variety of sports equipment. Adjoining the games room, a shared utility room has a washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board. If more space is needed, the Events Barn is available to hire.

Additional Information: The Manor House has underfloor heating and WiFi, and all utilities are included, as are sheets and bath towels. Guests are requested to bring towels to use with the hot tub. Well-behaved pets are welcome, with the owners providing a hamper of doggy treats, towels and bedding to help ensure every guest feels welcome and comfortable. Smoking is allowed in the garden but not inside The Manor House or any of the buildings on the estate. Please speak with the owner if you need any help arranging local transport, catering or activities.

Prices are charged as follows: Short breaks are offered all year round costing from £2400 (low season) to £3300 (high) for a one to three-night weekend break or one to four-night mid-week break.
