Suncroft is a beautiful, Grade-II listed, 340-year-old, thatched cottage, 3-bedroom holiday home sleeping 6 guests in bedrooms, with room for 2 more in the snug. Contemporary kitchen, furnishings and bathrooms yet maintains the character features of a 17th-century property. In walking distance of a pub, with countryside walks in every direction. Shotteswell is ideally located for visiting the Cotswolds, Warwick Castle and Stratford-upon-Avon, with Banbury train station just 5 miles away.

Indawo
The approach to Suncroft is through idyllic Cotswold countryside, with the pretty village of Shotteswell sitting high on the ridge looking out across Oxfordshire and Warwickshire. This beautiful 3-bedroom, thatched cottage has been lovingly and painstakingly restored and updated by the current owners to retain plenty of original Restoration period character while bringing the facilities right up to date with a modern kitchen and bathrooms. Suncroft sits at right angles to a quiet country lane, with the Old Post Office as its neighbour. Extending down the hill to one side of the cottage is a magnificent garden. The cottage has private parking for two cars and roadside parking for one more.

Suncroft is a spacious holiday home, with a large, fully equipped bright and light kitchen-diner with fantastic views from the kitchen windows. A family shower room sits off to one side of the dining area. From the dining area head into the first of two reception rooms, the snug (which can sleep two extra guests on a single day bed that converts into a king-size trundle bed). Continue up five wooden steps into the cosy living room. Both reception rooms have original inglenook fireplaces with realistic gas-fired wood burners. Upstairs are three double bedrooms and a large family bathroom with an inviting, free-standing bath. The third bedroom is sometimes used by the owners as a study and is accessed either from Bedroom 2 or up a spiral staircase from the dining room.

The long and pretty country cottage garden at Suncroft has a seating area and a dining area, with a charcoal BBQ, just a few steps down from the kitchen. Down a few more stone steps, is the main garden which is laid to lawn with beautifully planted borders, mature trees, a wildflower garden and a carpeted garden room with electricity - ideal for quiet contemplation or a place for the younger guests to hang out. To the front of the cottage, which sits at right-angles to a country lane, is the original front door covered with rambling wisteria, a shared drive leading to a private carport and the door into the kitchen – now used as the main entrance.
