Property details

The Old Bakery is a converted, period, beamed, detached, stone property that lies near the green in the village of Kingham. An attractive village, situated within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, built predominantly of Cotswold stone amongst elegant tiled and thatch roofed cottages.

The village previously won the prestigious title of "England's Favourite Village" as featured in Country Life magazine and was named the best village in England by the Telegraph in 2010. You are within easy walking distance of the well-stocked village shop and post office and the village's two highly recommended local pubs, the Kingham Plough owned by Masterchef semi-finalist Emily Watkins and The Wild Rabbit.
For those looking to use public transport, the property is ideally situated with the village being on the main line from London Paddington, with stops at Oxford, Didcot and Moreton-in-Marsh. The property itself is only four minutes from the station, making it an ideal location from which to explore the local area.

Comfortable cottage in a pretty village, glorious sunshine (& frost) most of the time. The Autumn colours have been wonderful. Have visited family, friends and dentist! After 12 months living in the North we had to get used to the traffic in the South again!

We had a lovely time and the cottage was perfect for our family! We appreciated the hamper left for us as it was delicious and very considerate. We went on many long walks as, fortunately, the weather was superb, meaning that we could enjoy the Cotswolds. The living room is extremely cosy and we liked how the bedrooms were all close together and connected the family! Thank you for our stay, we thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

First time away, three sisters with our husbands - absolutely lovely weekend in gorgeous "home from home". Lots of eating (too much!). Loads of laughter and plans to repeat it. The Cotswolds are a gem in England's Crown and aren't we lucky to have had good weather.

The house was fabulous! Clean, tidy and really well equipped. There was everything we needed and more. The welcome hamper was gorgeous and full of goodies for our weekend stay. The house was in a perfect location, a couple of minutes walk to two amazing pubs and a lovely walk across the fields to Daylesford Farm. Check in and out was easy and the communication between the owner and Rural Retreats was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hose to anyone looking to stay in the area. Thank you.

A girls weekend away and we've had a fab time here at The Old Bakery. Great property, so well equipped & comfortable. Lovely hamper too! Probably too comfy because we can't say that we've done a lot other than catch up. Excellent light lunch in Chipping Campden - Huxley's with a roaring log fire. Off now to Daylesford Organics - more food! Thank you - we've had a great time

After a disastrous journey which took 5 hours instead of 1, we have had a lovely two nights in this wonderful property. Thank you for all the lovely goodies which were great when we arrived late Friday evening. We ate in The Howard Arms at Ilmington which, although is a bit of a drive, was fab. Would definitely return to The Old Bakery.

Thank you for the use of The Old Bakery which provided a perfect base for a fabulous weekend retreat. We've loved the village and enjoyed two different but wonderful nights out. The Wild Rabbit is definitely recommended for an amazing setting, food and service. The Plough, more quirky with more traditional character. May thanks

A beautiful cottage, in a beautiful setting. Was a perfect quiet retreat for a lovely family Christmas. Totally impressed with the cleanliness and we couldn't find anything more we would have wanted. Our recommendations for food:- The Ebrington Arms, Ebrington just outside Chipping Campden, the food was just brilliant. The service from Rural Retreats has been outstanding. Thank you
