If a chocolate-box cottage in a charming Cotswold town is what you’re after, then look no further than this Grade II listed, 17th-century abode. Situated in pretty Charlbury, the place is surrounded by glorious countryside – and more importantly, it’s a three-minute walk to the pub. Follow a bridleway that runs alongside the river to Ditchley Park or set out on the five-mile Finstock and Evenlode loop. Come home wind-whipped and worn-out to a cosy sitting room with wood-burning stove. Light the fire and hunker down as a private chef, booked via your fantastic host, gets to work in the kitchen. Should your aching muscles need a little attention, request for an expert massage therapist to treat you to an indulgent pamper session. When it’s sunny out, spend your afternoons relaxing on the patio as the barbecue expectedly sizzles in preparation for long, lazy lunches. At the end of another idyllic day, retreat to quiet bedrooms for a peaceful sleep in sumptuous beds.
