This romantic cottage sits on the grounds of a 17th-century Grade II listed home and was thoughtfully renovated in 2009 with high-quality furnishings. It features a south-facing courtyard garden to enjoy a private cup of tea or glass of wine whilst taking in the beautiful flora and basking in the country air.

The adjoining sitting room features a double-height beamed vaulted ceiling, wood panelling, stone walls, electric wood-burner, and Freesat flat-screen TV with DVD player.
The double bedroom of this countryside cottage enjoys a view of the courtyard and garden, with an en-suite bathroom with a shower over. The historic village of Halford boasts a thriving Village Hall and the earthworks and buried remains of Halford Castle believed to be the predecessor of the current manor house.
Three miles south lies Shipston-on-Stour, with many small shops to sample, whilst the market towns of Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Campden, and Moreton-in-Marsh are all short drives away. One can explore nearby Warwick or Kenilworth castles or make a day trip to Stratford upon Avon and take in the Shakespearean sights.
