Property details

Bay Tree Cottage is the perfect romantic bolthole. Tucked away in an elevated position on the edge of this very pretty village with a choice of excellent pubs and restaurants within easy strolling distance, it manages to combine an away from it all feeling with a location that makes it an ideal base for exploring with or without a car.

Packed with period features; flagstone floors, original beams and a generous stone fireplace complete with wood burning stove, it's obvious that Bay Tree Cottage has been restored with love. Four legged friends are welcome too and when it comes to walking routes, you'll be spoilt for choice.

Thank you Vanessa for providing us with a real "home from home".
Your attention an impressive indication of the love you have put into a hamper for welcoming guests.The wine, the beef chews for the dog and tea cakes were a very nice touch indeed.
In fact we would recommend you and the cottage to anyone else who fancies visiting the Cotswolds.

P.S try The Kings Head in Bledington for great food and atmosphere.

Wow! Booked as a surprise getaway for my 50th birthday and New Year. We had a wonderful time, walking around the village, a lovely New Year’s Eve meal with Vanessa & Andy at The Lamb Inn – delicious food also at The Hare in neighbouring village. We explored the Cotswolds using Shipton as a base: Chipping Norton & Burford – both lovely and a day shopping in Bicester village designer outlet only an hour away. The cottage was perfect for the two of us; cosy nights by the log burner and everything we needed on arrival. It has been fantastic and we would have no hesitation in coming back. Thank you so much guys, we loved it!

Thank you so much Vanessa! We've had such a lovely peaceful few days. We have really enjoyed cosy nights in by the log burner - the snow has been an added bonus. Thank you for all the treats and for venturing out in the snow with extra logs for us.
