The Chestnuts 5* self catering cottage near Burford,Oxfordshire. Eco-Luxe cottage in the Cotswolds where luxury and sustainability go hand in hand. Sleeps 8 plus 2. For more information on this eco-friendly Cotswolds cottage please contact the owner.

Welcome to The Chestnuts 5 star luxury Holiday Cottage in the Cotswold and a place where Luxury and Sustainability meet. The Chestnuts self catering cottage is run as a carbon neutral business. The holiday cottage is located in the beautiful Cotswolds village of Shilton, near Burford in Oxfordshire, and provides luxury accommodation for up to 10.

The Cottage

The Chestnuts is an outstanding, traditional, yet chic, Cotswold cottage the main part of which dates back to the 1850s. It has many original features including a curved stone stairway, beamed ceilings and a large inglenook fireplace with bread oven. The original building has recently been sympathetically extended and today the holiday property comprises four double bedrooms, two lounges, two luxury bathrooms and a separate shower room and toilet. All the rooms are interior designed in soothing neutral colours with original art works and artefacts.

Cottage Facilities

The holiday cottage has every modern comfort which will make your stay totally relaxing; the fully fitted kitchen has a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer. It is equipped for the gourmet chef with all the utensils, cookery books and cooking equipment you should need, as well as the finest wine glasses, white bone china place settings and a coffee machine.

There are televisions in both lounges and master bedrooms, together with cd, dvd and Bose iPod docking station facilities. There is a small library of hand picked books, information guides, maps, dvds and CDs, as well as games for all ages. We have free wireless internet and a landline telephone to keep you fully connected.

The four double bedrooms upstairs sleep up to eight guests. The cottage also has two double sofa beds (one in each lounge) to sleep an extra 2 people. It therefore provides flexible luxurious holiday accommodation in the Cotswolds for up to 10 people.

Cottage Garden

Set in the very heart of Shilton, a beautiful village in the Cotswolds, the secluded garden has one of the best positions in the village having views over the adjoining meadow towards the ford. This ancient meadow is full of kingcups and cow parsley in the summer and is periodically grazed by sheep or horses.

There are numerous places to sit and dine in the garden and outside lights have been placed throughout the garden for your enhanced enjoyment. However, we suggest that you stay out in the garden in the dark; one of the joys of Shilton is its night sky. The relative lack of light pollution here can lead to some spectacular starry nights. The trees on the river bank are also home to many birds and you can often hear owls hooting to one another.

Cottage Location

Shilton is near Burford, in Oxfordshire. This Cotswolds village may appear to be sleepy but lots of events are organised throughout the year. Highlights to look out for are the village Easter Egg Rolling and Duck Race, the Garden Open Day in June, the annual village Summer Fete in August and the door to door Carol singing and Christmas Candlelight service.

The gardens of Shilton are special to all who live here, every June as many residents as possible open up their pride and joy gardens to the public for viewing. Funds are raised for the Church and local charities and if you are lucky enough to be visiting that weekend you will have a chance to view Shilton from many spots that remain exclusive only to their owners for the rest of the year.

Eco-Luxe Green Holiday Cottage

At The Chestnuts we are making a contribution to preserving the environment and reducing global warming. We are members of the Green Tourism Business Scheme and are proud to hold their Gold Award and the cottage has won many awards and featured in National and international press..
