Key Features2 cosy self catering holiday cottages
Short breaks are available
Far reaching & uninterrupted panoramic views
Private garden with seating, picnic tables & BBQ
Secluded, peaceful location on a small working farm
Near the old Cotswold market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, at the end of a private drive are two cosy self catering holiday cottages with far reaching, uninterrupted panoramic views.
Set in a secluded, peaceful location on a small working farm, they have been converted from an original Cotswold stone barn. The open beams and exposed timbers retain rural character and charm. There are expansive large grass areas and wonderful footpaths surrounding the cottages, which are ideal for strolling and dog walking.
The cottages share a private enclosed flower and lawned garden with seating, picnic tables and barbeque, ideal for summer breaks. Blackpitt is also charming in winter. Something we recommend is getting up early on a frosty morning when everything is still and quiet, when the roads are empty and the birds are singing
in the hedgerows. As you tramp along the crispy ground you can see your breath in the cold air, it is these moments that capture the precious secrets of the Gloucestershire countryside.
The cottages are fully equipped with all essential appliances, bed linen and tea towels. Both cottages have Broadband access and the hot water is heated by solar-power. We always welcome dogs, especially well behaved ones. The washing machine and tumble dryer, both coin operated are in the tack room next to the cottages. An outside washing line and pegs are also available. There is a freezer in the tack room which guests are welcome to use. There are expansive large grass areas and wonderful footpaths surrounding the cottages, ideal for dog walking. Maps are provided in each cottage. One car parking space is allocated per cottage and please ask if you would like extra space. There is also undercover storage for mountain bikes, muddy walking boots etc.
Stable Cottage is the larger of the two cottages, with a fully equipped farmhouse-style kitchen, dining area, separate sitting room, first floor double bedroom, twin bedroom, and bathroom. The limestone walls are original as is all the timber work and beams .There is underfloor heating throughout, Freeview, Sky TV, video and DVD player with videos available on request. There is also a sofa bed with linen provided for extra guests. In addition to the large garden opposite the property, there is a smaller grassy patch bordered by shrubs and vibrant flowers in summer.
Well Cottage has a fully-equipped kitchen, open-plan sitting room, first floor double bedroom with French windows and ensuite bathroom. There is Freeview, Sky TV, DVD & video player.
Recycling is encouraged as much as possible especially as we do not have a regular rubbish collection. We have a bottle and tin collection bin, a newspaper and cardboard bin and a compost bin for vegetable matter. We have ducks for bread recycling and horses for carrots, apples and polo mint recycling. There is a large bin for any other rubbish behind the cottages.
Blackpitt Farm is one mile outside the picturesque village of Oddington, with the famous Michelin award winning Fox Inn and two miles from the beautiful hilltop town of Stow-on-the-Wold. It is surrounded by miles of footpaths and bridle roads suitable for mountain bikes, and is an ideal base for exploring the Cotswolds; England and Wales's largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
