Diplock Cottage, Chadlington sleeping up to 6 guests
The period stonework of S127748 makes this special property feel steeped in time, but don’t let appearances deceive you. Step inside and it’s very much twenty-first century comfort and convenience, including a garden room with large double doors that flood the interior with light. This is a place to feel at home in, with a master bedroom that has its very own dressing room as well as an en-suite.
With three reception rooms on the ground floor as well as the kitchen, there’s lots of space for the whole family to relax. And for those of you who don’t want to be parted from their digital creature comforts, there’s Sky TV and a Bose speaker system too.
The village of Chadlington is a pleasant place for a stroll, with a village shop and a friendly village inn, but you might prefer just spending some time relaxing in the well-established garden, with its tasteful beds of shrubs and plants. There’s a raised decking area that’s the perfect place to relax after spending the day exploring some of the gems of the Cotswolds.

Lodge Park’s unusual claim to fame is that it’s the only 17th century grandstand remaining in England. The building is quite unique, and the grounds are worth exploring too. This beautiful landscape is home to herds of deer and is great birdwatching country.
Oxford may be famous as the city of dreaming spires but there are plenty of other attractions to enjoy on a day trip here. Take a punt along the river, for instance, or visit the overwhelming collection of treasures and curios at the Pitt Rivers Museum. If you’d like to visit one of the colleges, Christ Church has to be one of the most impressive.
