Cosy yet contemporary 5 bedroom property with hot tub, nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds

Part of our exclusive 'Handpicked' collection, The Cart Shed whisks you away into a world of utter relaxation, with reading nooks and separate hideaways for little ones (or big ones). Nestled in the best part of the Cotswolds amongst footpaths and country pubs this is a delightful retreat.

The Cart Shed’s living space is open plan living at its best, the English Oak locally crafted kitchen is not just stunning, it encompasses a modern kitchen including the most important appliance for a large family gathering... a dishwasher. A large dining table with endless views onto your private courtyard ensures for no lapse in dinner conversation. Spill from the kitchen into love seats & leather Chesterfields to catch up with the outside world, or to continue your escapism by watching a film on the 52 inch television, complete with Sky.

Slip out of crisp White Company bed linen, leave your hand-made mattress behind & indulge in boutique award-winning toiletries, the very best way to start the day. The Cart Shed offers one downstairs King Sized bedroom complete with en-suite, one upstairs king sized bedroom, two upstairs double bedrooms & one twin room complete with en-suite bathroom.

Dine Al fresco on your private patio, or take in the spectacular unbroken view of the stars in the countryside’s blackness. Overflow your glasses with something sparkly in the summer, burrow into a blanket with hot cocoa in the winter, all year round the peace & beauty is a must. There is also a hot tub for guests use.

The Cart Shed has ample parking spaces & disabled access. The Cart Shed is dog friendly with a dog bowl & lead provided for your furry friend to borrow should they have forgotten to pack them. The Cart Shed provides a wireless Bose speaker for you to set the soundtrack for your stay and modern laundry facilities are on site should they be required.

The Cart Shed is located less than a minute’s drive from the picture-postcard village of Great Tew, home of one of the Times’ ‘Best Pubs to Visit’; The Falkland Arms, a quaint village shop and café and the glorious St Michael’s Church. Great Tew is ideal for an afternoon stroll (and a photographers dream), with its charming thatched cottages and gabled roofs, mullioned windows and colourful gardens.

Just a ten minute drive from your luxury cottage, visitors can also find the beautiful market town of Chipping Norton. Stock up on delicious self-catering delicacies at the thriving Wednesday market where you can find mouth-watering produce, or dine at the outstanding pubs, gourmet restaurants and cosy tea shops. This quaint town has plenty of facilities including a superb leisure centre, award-winning theatre and is also renowned for its incredible events, including the ‘Big Feastival’ hosted by Blur guitarist Alex James and TV chef Jamie Oliver.

A little further afield lie two of the most iconic locations on the Cotswolds map. Bourton-on-the-water is 30 minutes from Great Tew and is regularly voted one of the prettiest villages in England with its fascinating model village and just 35 minutes away is ‘Arlington Row’, dating back to 1380 and arguably one of the most well-known vistas in the whole of the Cotswolds. Truly a photographer’s dream!

For a taste of the city, the iconic Oxford is less than 20 miles away and is an ideal day visit for those wanting to explore the historic streets, waterways and landmarks.
