Self Catering in Oxfordshire
Welcome to Heath Farm Holiday Cottages, Self Catering in Oxfordshire just outside of Swerton near Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire. Set within the Cotswolds, lovingly converted from old farm buildings set round a stunning paved courtyard with water garden and adjoining the owners’ house, these five award-winning, very individual stone cottages offer guests the ultimate in comfort, quality and cleanliness and a chance to enjoy the high standards of craftsmanship which is the hallmark of this idyllic retreat.
Each room has its own unique and inviting character. Beneath the dovecote a weighty wooden door with wrought iron steel grille leads into the lobby. To the left is the bedroom with stone mullioned arched windows looking out onto the fields. A mediaeval-styled arched door and stone passageway lead past an unusual and spacious shower room down into the light and airy living area with fully equipped kitchen. A comfy sofa bed allows you to relax in front of the open fire. Whitewashed walls and terracotta floor tiles give a Spanish feel to this room with windows looking out onto the courtyard, where the morning sun streams in.
Chestnut, on the ground floor of the converted barn, is very spacious for two people. A small lobby leads into the oak kitchen. You then pass through beautiful solid ash double doors set in a wooden screen to reach the comfortable dining and living area. An unusual open fire, exposed joists and beams and African slate floor make this a most luxurious apartment. A large sofa bed allows two extra guests to be accommodated in comfort. Comfortable armchairs and elegant oak-framed French windows welcome you into the courtyard. The bedroom, through a curtained wooden archway has an en suite bathroom and features a window seat with a lovely view of the valley.
The main door opens into a luxurious custom built kitchen. Through folding doors you enter the main living area with a round table and chairs, comfy sofa, rugs and open fire. A heavy curtain divides this from the peaceful sleeping area with its exquisite en suite bathroom, which is reached through a hidden door in the wooden panelling. Enjoy the high pitched ceilings, warm terracotta floor tiles, exposed beams and stone walls throughout this apartment, with stunning views out onto the courtyard and down into the valley below.
The crowning glory, Walnut occupies the top floor of the converted barn. Sunlight floods into the vast living area through an entire gable of elegant oak windows overlooking the courtyard. Competing for attention is the massive stone fireplace with its chimney breast towering up to the pitched ceiling of the sleeping gallery above. This is reached up a solid elm staircase landing in front of a magnificent stone arched window giving glorious views down to the fish pond and across the picturesque valley. The spacious bathroom has a separate shower. Exposed stone walls, oak beams, wood panelling and polished elm floor combine with the comfortable seating to create a warm and luxurious ambience.
The latest addition to Heath Farm Holiday Cottages, Cobnut completes this exclusive quintet of superb cottages. As with all the other cottages here, Cobnut has been finished to an unusually high standard, with attention to detail again to the fore. A spacious entrance veranda leads into the living room area with a beautiful solid elm floor, quality sofa and armchairs and open fire place. The windows afford stunning views across the valley and into the courtyard. To the right through a beautiful elm door is a small cloakroom with airing room and washing machine. The dining area has a large refectory table in solid elm which can seat up to 8 people.
The oak kitchen has a granite work top and stainless steel fittings with all modern equipment. A beautiful solid ash open tread staircase with oak panelling to the side leads to the 2 en suite bedrooms. The front room overlooking the courtyard has an exquisite shower room with exposed stone wall, Venetian marble tiling and oak panelling with an electronic power shower. The rear bedroom looks out across the pond and valley beyond and has a large bath, also with Venetian marble tiling and oak panelling.
