Exclusive Recommended Pool Manor Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite Romantic

Perfectly positioned towards the edge of the village in the Cotswold countryside lies the Lavender Farmhouse. The 12.5 acres Farmhouse offers plenty of space and seclusion in a conservation area. Offering a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with an abundance of actives to enjoy onsite, whilst still being just a short drive from Oxford, Soho Farmhouse and the market towns of Banbury and Bicester.

Ideal for any summer family getaway, this chic home boasts an eclectic and comfortable interior. Built from the iconic Cotswold Stone and including exposed beams, oak floors, and a slate roof. The accommodation is arranged on a single storey around an attractive courtyard in a classic ‘U’ shape ideal for family living and entertaining. All rooms face out to the pretty courtyard garden designed by garden designer Louise Bowman-Shaw.

Character filled; the heart of the house really delivers. The modern farmhouse kitchen has azure blue wooden cabinetry, wooden top surfaces, and a tiled flooring throughout – perfect for whipping up a feast. Doors open directly onto the stone terrace courtyard that beautifully fills the centre of the property. The suntrap courtyard provides outside dining for ten. The kitchen leads onto the drawing-room with vaulted ceilings, exposed timbers, and wooden floors. The drawing room is dual aspect with fireplace and wood burner. It is a flexible light room with comfortable seating and a dining table for guests to enjoy. Guests have additional entertaining space in the generous living room. The cosy sitting room boasting a smart TV, comfy seating and wood burning stove is lovely in the winter months. There is a party/games barn too! This houses a table tennis table, table football, darts and a small gym.

The five ground floor ensuite bedrooms are located along the west wing of the Farmhouse, with most of the bedrooms enjoying floor to ceiling picture windows or French doors to the courtyard garden. They consist of the master bedroom with a super king-size bed and ensuite bathroom. Three further bedrooms, one super king bed, and two king-size beds, are also available. The final fifth child-friendly bedroom has bunk beds. All of which benefit from an en suite bath or shower room.

Outside, the property is approached along a gravel drive to the parking area at the front of the property and continues to the rear, the courtyard, and stables. Guests have ample space to unwind in the south-facing landscaped garden, which provided an incredible sun trap within the courtyard. There are additional gardens with a spacious lawn, mature trees, and a waterlily pond to the adjoining east paddock. Outside, kids can enjoy the table tennis, cricket nets, croquet lawn, hidden rugby post, boating, a trampoline and the pièce de resistance - a stunning outdoor heated swimming pool. Please note that the swimming pool has a safety cover for when it's not in use.

An excellent range of shops and numerous fine pubs and restaurants can be found in the nearby Villages. Shopaholics will love a visit to Bicester with its abundance of outlet shops.

The immediate countryside is lovely, providing a rich mix of activities, marvellous walks and cycling opportunities. Lavender Farmhouse is both an idealistic weekend retreat with numerous onsite activities for those wishing to escape from the hustle and bustle of London, and a perfect base for an active Summer holiday exploring Oxford and the Cotswolds.
