A self-catering holiday retreat located at the end of its own private drive nestled in a sublime part of the Blenheim Palace Estate, offers all the comfort and flexibility of home-away-from-home living, coupled with a sense of rich reward and self-indulgence. 

This cosy, two-storey, two-bedroom hideaway, made of Oxfordshire Cotswold stone, is inherently captivating. Shaded by oaks and horse chestnuts, the cottage and its landscaped garden sit on the edge of the River Evenlode, with a traditional stone bridge that guards the working entrance to the Duke of Marlborough’s farmlands.

Refurbished with an eye towards creating glamorous countryside comfort, a British theme runs throughout using vintage, restored and reclaimed materials and only the best in British design: Ochre light fixtures, Cole & Son wallpaper, Royal Doulton fire places and Andrew Martin fabrics, to name a few.
