Holiday Rental House
Lavender Cottage is a traditional Victorian cottage which has been renovated to a high standard and provides a perfect base for exploring the North Cotswolds, Stratford-on-Avon, Oxford and Warwick Castle. There is a large sitting room with original cast iron oven and fireplace - great for cosy evenings if you are visiting in the cooler months. The characterful kitchen/diner overlooks fields so you can watch the cows come home whilst at the sink! There is a small sun room overlooking the garden. There are three bedrooms ( king-size, twin and single) all beautifully decorated in English country style. All bedrooms and bathroom have beams and overlook fields or thatched cottages. The luxury bathroom has a roll-top bath - great for relaxing after a long day's sightseeing.
