Shipton Cottage in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds is as English as cricket on the village green. But beneath the English reserve of fossil-stone floors and four-posters, Colefax and Fowler upholstery, and peonies and poppies, beats a homely heart.
That warmth finds its focus in the Shaker kitchen. Rustle up a repast yourself or summon our chef and chillax with something chilled while we thrill you with three courses and a strange willingness to wash up afterwards. Later, gather round the woodburner and let the chat and laughter spark and crackle.
Follow the French doors to the apple orchard. Take tea or a tipple on the terrace. Kids will continue to the shared outdoor play area, indoor games room, tennis court, playhouses, and pedal cars and bikes.
