Travelling with teenagers, we try to find somewhere that we can all enjoy! So Shipton-under-Wychwood ticked all the boxes. The countryside and the stone buildings are beautiful, the pubs are delicious and friendly - The Tite Inn at Chadlington is highly recommended and have a lovely patio and children's play area. Cotswold Wildlife park is nearby and excellent, and we also had a trip out to Rush Indoor Skatepark in Brimscombe (less than an hour away) to keep our son happy! The local play park is also excellent for all ages...
Gardeners Cottage is finished to a very high standard and had absolutely everything we needed (except we couldn't find a first aid kit :) ) .... The walled garden is lovely and the interior of the house is modern, but keeping a lot of original features. We even had the wood burner roaring on a couple of evenings (in August!)
There's a lovely short woodland walk a few metres up the road, just before the cricket club, where you will find some little canals and a duck pond.
Thank you to the owners and to Jigsaw Holidays :)More
