Sweetheart Cottage is romantic, and full of character. Set in a quiet hillside lane where flowers tumble over walls in the peaceful and picturesque Oxfordshire village of Swalcliffe, access is gained by a short set of stairs from the front door at road level or through a cobbled passageway to the side of the property leading to a pretty garden with shallow stream. Two patios provide 'al fresco' dining space and a herb garden provides fresh flavour for your holiday recipes! Sweetheart Cottage is in the perfect location for walkers, cyclists and families to enjoy countryside pursuits or to simply sit and relax in ambient surroundings. It is is just a few metres walk from the local pub, the church, and a magnificent Tithe Barn.

It is is just a few metres walk from the local pub, the church, and a magnificent Tithe Barn. Footpaths leading from the village, pass through gently rolling hills and beautiful byways. The cottage is an ideal base from which to explore the beautiful Cotswolds: within easy reach are the market towns of Shipston-on-Stour, Chipping Norton and Banbury, all only 10 minutes drive away. ‘Shakespeare’s Stratford’, is just a 15 minute drive. It is also possible to explore southern Warwickshire and Northamptonshire with ease. A little further afield but still within easy reach can be found the ‘dreaming spires’ of Oxford, racing at Silverstone, designer shopping at Bicester, a delightful small theatre at Chipping Norton, Blenheim Palace at Woodstock, and historic Warwick Castle. Swalcliffe village is in an ideal location for visiting many National Trust properties, such as Charlecote Park or Farnborough Hall. Nearby villages are brought to life with country pubs and restaurants. Other local points of interest include stone circles, civil war battle fields, potteries and breweries. We believe in fair pricing. We do not increase prices for regional events or at 'peak' times and no supplements are requested for winter fuel. We believe in comfort and relaxation!

We spent 4 nights in this quaint and lovely cottage. There were lots of nice touches to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable; and the owners go to a lot of trouble to make Sweetheart cottage very welcoming and comfortable. Thank you!

Beautifully stylish holiday cottage (and it's rare I say that!) Luxurious extra touches such as White Company toiletries and local produce welcome hamper were really appreciated. The bed was super comfy. Perfect base for short drive days out to Stratford, Warwick and north Cotswolds.

About the neighbourhood
Swalcliffe Village Swalcliffe is a small village in Oxfordshire on the edge of the Northern Cotswolds. Named after the swallows which visited in past times it is now a designated conservation area and consists of a small cluster of cottages, a church, a pub, a boarding school, a village hall and a Tithe Barn housing a museum of rural and agricultural life as well as a history of Swalcliffe. There are many walks leading from the village passing through beautiful countryside and along hidden byways.
Getting around
Because of the beautiful location and the availability of an English Country pub, serving good food, just a stone's throw away it is not necessary to have a car to hand. Visitors may relax in the location and while away the hours with ease. However, for those wishing to explore further afield there is a bus route through the village connecting Banbury, Shipston on Stour and Stratford upon Avon via the North Oxfordshire villages. From these country towns it is possible to access places of interest across the wider area. Alternatively, visitors may bring a car to provide the ultimate flexibility for days out in the Cotswolds and beyond.
