The Experience

Who wouldn’t love a 300-year-old cottage built of Cotswolds’ stone, topped with thatch and steeped in country charm? Albertine roses frame the door, lavender lines the path, and the décor – not the usual play-safe rustic offering – is exquisite, contemporary, and surprising. Imagine Arran-knit cushions on grey cloth sofas, a long low coffee table from an upcycled door, a splash of modern art on an open stone wall, and a stunning glass Buddha head. Warmth and generosity belie simple origins: the kitchen’s immaculate cabinetry, the dining room’s cool mesh chairs, the bedrooms’ chic white linen, the textures, the colours, and a bathroom to die for. There’s Shakespeare in Stratford, organic food at Daylesford, and plenty of country pursuits to keep you amused. This roadside cottage, in a pretty village between Kingham and Chipping Norton, is the perfect size for a family (though not young children because of open-tread stairs) or two stylish couples on a country jaunt – there’s even a spirits’ bar! Don’t forget to book an in-house Balinese massage, and a Sunday roast at the pub down the road.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Sand & Stone

  • The awesome Chequers pub at the centre of the village serves fantastic food, wines and beers, with a good dose of old school American country and folk music.
  • The hugely popular Daylesford organic farm shop and hay barn spa is a short five-minute drive away, we recommend guests head over for a morning to enjoy their fantastic brunch made with local produce and equally great spa.
  • In Kingham, just a mile away you’ll find “The Wild Rabbit”, Daylesford’s newest venture, along with the Plough Inn, two of the best foodie stops you’ll find anywhere.
  • Just a half hour drive from Churchill and you’ll arrive at Burford, a beautiful golf course suited to all levels of players.
  • Just a twenty minute drive from Churchill is Turpins Lodge . This lovely riding school welcomes all ages and abilities.
  • Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill. is really close as well as Chastleton House, arguably the finest Jacobean Country House in Britain.
