Stunning two bedroom holiday cottage in the Cotswold village of Bladon. The property joins the very famous Blenheim Palace estate, and is walking distance from the pretty town of Woodstock. The city of Oxford is a short drive away, making it the ideal location for work, pleasure or a combination of both.
This former farmhouse was lovingly restored in 2013 and has been decorated in a beautiful French country cottage style. The cottage is set in a tranquil and calm location, set away from the road by a large drive and a lovely garden. One of the major benefits of the cottage is that the front is south facing and light streams in through the large windows.
Entering Home Farm Cottage you are greeted by a bright hallway with traditional stone floor. To the right there is a large living room which is furnished with comfortable leather sofas and a wood burning stove. The living room is the perfect place to relax after a long day. To the left of the hallway is the large cottage style kitchen. Furnished with an attractive wood dining table and chairs seating up to six people and a fantastic setting for family meals. The kitchen is fitted with all cooking utensils and equipment that you would need from a home away from home.
The staircase winds up to the first floor with a small study area off to the left hand side. There are two spacious bedrooms with large windows. The first bedroom is furnished with a comfortable French style king size bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers. The ensuite bathroom is fitted with bath with overhead shower. The second bedroom is furnished with twin beds and stylish wood furniture. The ensuite bathroom is fitted with a large shower cubicle.
The owners of the property, Kelvin and Kate, live in the adjoining property and share the driveway. They are on hand to answer any questions or queries and love welcoming their guests to Home Farm Cottage.
