>> CLEANING PROTOCOL: Every owner of a property listed with Bolthole Retreats has undertaken to implement a series of additional cleaning measures in order to minimise the risk of infection between stays. Housekeepers have been instructed to follow a 30-point guide which involves cleaning first to remove germs and other impurities, and then disinfecting to kills germs with chemicals while wearing disposable gloves and facemasks. All laundry will be washed using a bleach or other disinfectant-based laundry detergent containing active oxygen bleach at a temperature of at least 60 degrees. At least one pot of hand sanitiser, and for the larger properties 2 or 3 pots, will be provided. Implementing these measures will necessarily result in an increase in the time taken to undertake a clean. Therefore, we ask that guests respect the advertised check-in and check-out times, and we will regrettably be unable to agree to any exceptions.

THE SPACE>> Gladstone Cottage is a cottage of two parts, with the original rooms dating back to the 1750s and a modern extension added in 2015, providing the perfect combination of history – exposed beams, flagstone flooring, and an inglenook fireplace - and every modern facility and convenience a family or group of friends would need for a Cotswold holiday, including four bathrooms - two with a bath and shower, a bar and two reception rooms, both with TVs. The cottage is conveniently located on the A361, mid-way between Banbury and the popular Cotswold town of Chipping Norton, both 7 miles away.

A pretty English country garden wraps around the cottage from the roadside, providing a tranquil setting for guests to relax and entertain in. The River Swere forms the end boundary of the garden, where guests will find a wooden bench, making it an idyllic spot to sit and watch the water flow and the birds and bugs dart about. There is a beautifully maintained patio, with a round table and seating for 8, positioned under a majestic magnolia tree adorned with fairy lights, making it a magical spot on a summer’s evening. Two outdoor sofas and a coffee table are also provided on the patio, the perfect spot for planning a walk or enjoying the evening sunshine. Conveniently positioned as you step out of the dining area is an abundance of fresh herbs, including mint, sage and thyme, which guests are welcome to use for cooking! A path leads from the upper garden to a garden gate; head through here to walk to the Duck on the Pond pub next door.

To the side of the cottage is a large private parking area with space for five cars.

South Newington is a delightful village, with pretty cottages and houses built of local limestone. It dates back to Anglo-Saxon times and is mentioned in the Domesday Book.
The village has a very fine church of considerable size dating back to Norman times, which is dedicated to St Peter ad Vincula ("St Peter in Chains"), only one of 15 in England to be dedicated in this way. Back in the 18th Century the village had four pubs; today, just one, The Duck on the Pond (originally The Wykeham Arms), survives and is very conveniently located next door to Gladstone Cottage!

The Cottage is in walking distance, across beautiful Cotswold countryside, of four great country pubs: The Falkland Arms at Great Tew (a 3-mile walk); The George Inn at Barford St Michael (a 2.2-mile walk); The Horse and Groom at Milcombe (a 1-mile walk); and The White Swan at Wigginton (a 2-mile walk). You can find a copy of each walk in the printed Welcome Guide at the cottage.

Full Property Description
Ground Floor

The first point of entry for guests staying at Gladstone Cottage is the Dining Area (though there is an Entrance Hall and porch at the front of the house, which can also be used – see below):

Dining Area

Stepping into the Dining Area from the patio and the hugely impressive magnolia tree, guests will be immediately struck by the warmth and cosiness of the cottage combined with its chic contemporary touches of colour and lighting.

The dining area features an antique wooden table and chairs to comfortably sit eight guests. A small dresser holds a library of cookery books, available for guests to use.

Utility Room

Just off the Dining Area is a large storage cupboard and the Utility Room with a washer, dryer, iron, ironing board, highchair, cleaning items, a handy hanging rail for drying clothes and plenty of coat hooks and room for muddy walking boots.

Turn right out of the Dining Area towards the front of the original part of the cottage and the Family Bathroom

Downstairs Family Bathroom

This bright and light bathroom has richly coloured deep magenta walls and features a full-size bath with an overhead shower, a stunning golden lacquered sink set in an antique dressing table, a toilet and heated towel rail. (This Bathroom serves as the Ensuite to Bedroom 4.)

Hallway and Front Porch

The Hallway is where guests will find a photographic diary of the restoration work carried out by the owners. At the end of the hall is a doorway to the front porch, where there is a handy bench to sit and put your boots on, and front door. Keys for the front door can be found hanging in the hallway to the left of the porch door. The front door leads to a path to the main road and a footpath to the pub next door.

From the hallway turn left into the Snug

Snug

This cosy second living room features the cottage’s original stone flagstones, inglenook fireplace, with a woodburner tucked inside it, and exposed timbers and beams. The room is furnished with two double, sink-in leather sofas, a footstool and a pretty antique desk. The Snug has a 48” TV connected to Freeview and iPlayer. There is a DVD player and a wide choice of DVDs in a large cupboard which also houses a huge choice of family games. Stairs lead up from the Snug to Bedroom 3 and 4 (see description below), behind the stairs is a bookcase with a wide choice of novels. (Note: the locked door in the Snug leads to a private room used by the owners.)

Head back to the Dining Area and on to the Kitchen

Kitchen

This beautifully decorated, spacious cooking and socialising area features a central island with four barstools and a Rangemaster cooker set into the original inglenook fireplace. The deep plum-coloured walls and white Shaker-style units perfectly complement the rich purple tiling with its Moorish mosaic detail and the antique Welsh dresser - all offset by the delightful purple fairy lights around the unit tops. Every convenience has been thought of from the underfloor heating to the splendid double fridge, full range of crockery and bakeware and a Bluetooth speaker. The kitchen connects to the Living Room through double doors.

Living Room

This room is a showstopper with its fantastic view across the patio and down the garden to the River Swere. Bi-fold doors open out on to the patio and the outdoor eating and sitting area, which at night-time are lit by fairy lights draped through the beautiful magnolia tree. The room is furnished with two four-seater, burgundy leather sofas, and a central coffee table, and features a bar with three stools and a wine/beer fridge. There is a 48” flat screen TV with iPlayer. This TV does not connect to Freeview, but does have apps for ITV Hub and 4oD, and if you have Netflix, Wuaki or Amazon subscriptions, you can use these apps with your own login details. The TV automatically connects to the Sound Bar via Bluetooth.

Upstairs

Gladstone Cottage has two staircases, one leading from the Living Room to Bedroom 1 (master with en suite bathroom with roll top bath, walk-in shower, basin and WC) and Bedroom 2 (king-size en suite shower room with shower, basin and WC), and the second staircase leading from the Snug to Bedroom 3 (en suite shower room with shower, basin and WC) and Bedroom 4.

Up the staircase from the Living Room to Bedroom 1 and 2

Bedroom One

This spacious, triple-aspect room, with its opulent crystal chandelier and cream and lilac colourway, has superb views down the garden and over the magnolia tree at the centre of the patio. The room features a king-size, 4-poster, mahogany bed, bedside tables with reading lights, an antique chest of drawers, a triple-mirror dressing table, plus a full-length mirror and deep-pile carpet. At the entrance to the room is a large, walk-in wardrobe with a trouser press. The crowning glory of the master bedroom is the ensuite bathroom, with its enticing roll-top bath set against a relaxing heather background, and the walk-in shower with unusual iridescent purple tiles (the shower has a fixed rain showerhead and detachable hand shower). The bathroom has underfloor heating, a sink with a mirror, WC and heated towel rail.

Bedroom Two

The vaulted ceiling of this king-size ensuite bedroom with its wooden beam has been built with the history, of the original cottage, built in the 1750s. in mind. The taupe colour scheme, with accents of arctic blue, perfectly off-set the mahogany king-size sleigh bed. The bedroom has a large double wardrobe with plenty of covered hangers, bedside tables and reading lamps, a dressing table and a large mirror. The ensuite shower room features underfloor heating, a walk-in shower with detachable hand shower, basin and WC. (An extra single bed with a trundle bed below is provided in this room, making it ideal for guests with young children who may prefer to be closer to their parents rather than at the other end of the house in Bedroom 3 or 4.)
Please note: Bedroom 2 has a mezzanine area which can be accessed by a removable ladder. Access to this area is the sole responsibility of guests and the owners will accept no liability whatsoever from any accidents that may occur due to the use of the ladder or mezzanine area.
Up the staircase from the Snug (take care the stairs are quite narrow and do not have a handrail) to Bedroom 3 and 4

Bedroom Three

This double ensuite room, tucked away from the main part of the cottage and sitting above the Snug, has a country cottage feel, with highlights of a soothing heather colour. The bedroom features a double, brass bedstead, two large, pine wardrobes to either side of the bed, an antique pine chest of drawers and bedside chest of drawers with reading lamps and polished wooden floorboards. A large cupboard acts as a storage space or airing cupboard, as it has its own radiator. The ensuite shower room has a corner shower, WC and basin with a mirror and shaver’s point.

Bedroom 3 and 4 do not have underfloor heating, instead they are heated via radiators with thermostat controls.

Bedroom Four

Mind your head as you take a small step down into the smallest, but sweetest, bedroom in the cottage, featuring a four-poster mahogany double bed. Though small, this bedroom has a double wardrobe, bedside tables and a large mirror. Bedroom four uses the Family Bathroom, just down the stairs, as its ensuite.

Outside

As you turn off the main road onto Gladstone Cottage’s driveway, you’ll be greeted with a lovely view across the immaculate parking area to the lawn, flower beds and the little River Swere, which forms the bottom boundary of the garden. A wooden bench has been thoughtfully placed by the river making it an idyllic spot to sit and watch the water flow and the birds and bugs dart about. To the left of the parking area (suitable for up to 5 cars) is a wide and beautifully maintained patio, with a round table and seating for 8 – all positioned under a majestic magnolia tree adorned with fairy lights, making it a magical spot on a summer’s evening. Also arranged on the patio are two outdoor sofas and a coffee table, the perfect spot for planning a walk or enjoying the evening sunshine. Conveniently positioned as you step out of the dining area is an abundance of fresh herbs, including mint, sage and thyme, which guests are welcome to use in their cooking! A path leads from the upper garden to a garden gate; head through here to walk to the Duck on the Pond pub next door. Outdoor, motion sensitive lighting is located along the paths, guiding guests to the patio and front entrance.

Points of Note

• The garden has direct access to the River Swere, which after heavy rainfall flows quite quickly. We ask that guests with young children are vigilant at all times and that they do not leave children unattended in the garden.

• The staircase to bedrooms 3 and 4 (via the Snug) is quite narrow and does not have a handrail. Please take extra care on these stairs.

• Please be careful with the step on the patio. Due to the levels in the garden, a step had to be built into the patio.

• Televisions: There is a TV in the Snug and in the Living Room. Only the TV in the Snug is connected to Freeview TV. Both TVs have iPlayer. The Living Room TV also has apps for ITV Hub and 4oD, and if you have Netflix, Wuaki or Amazon subscriptions, you can use these apps with your login details.

The cottage is beside a busy 'A' road. We ask that guests with young children are vigilant at all times and that they do not leave children unattended in the garden.

Bedroom 2 has a mezzanine area which can be accessed by a removable ladder. Access to this area is the sole responsibility of guests and the owners will accept no liability whatsoever from any accidents that may occur due to the use of the ladder or mezzanine area.
