Aintree Cottage Cotswolds, England

Aintree Cottage Cotswolds Family friendly Luxury Holiday Cottage for romantic breaks in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, England

  • Master Bedroom with king size four poster bed and ensuite bathroom – bath with shower over.
  • Two twin rooms with shared bathroom – bath with shower over.
  • Drawing room stencilled by Jocasta Innes, with views onto walled garden and courtyard, and French windows to terrace. Open fire.
  • Children’s den under stairs with cooker and toys and dressing up clothes.
  • Kitchen/dining room: Side by side, dining table and pine dresser, us style fridge-freezer, hob and oven, microwave, Belfast sink, dish washer, washer/dryer, dish rack. Door to paved arbour facing west with tables and chairs.
  • Terrace facing walled garden with garden furniture, umbrella and barbeque.

 

Aintree (at the back of the courtyard to the left of the central arches) was once a stable, but is now more country house than cottage, let alone stable.

The front door opens into a lofty drawing room, large, handsome and rather grand, with pictures, 18th century engravings, table lamps, books and flowers, and walls stencilled by Jocasta Innes, green-on-green in a fern pattern. There’s a vast, down-cushioned Howard sofa in ochre violet; a small buttoned Victorian sofa in a subtle green Lelievre velvet and a big comfortable armchair. More seating – the club fender in front of the open fire, and a big ottoman. A tall George iii secretaire is on the left of fireplace next to the French windows to the terrace, and at the back of the room a big pale wood art nouveau sideboard is full of toys & board games. (Another treat for the children is the den under the stairs with its own door, and inside, dressing up clothes, more toys and a cooker).

 

Opening out of this room, and facing west through the French doors to its own trellised arbour, is the oak beamed kitchen and dining room, floored in pale apricot terracotta. The walls are yellow, the units off-white, and there’s a handsome Irish antique pine dresser, carrying an appealing display of blue-and-white china. The round pine pedestal dining table has chairs with cushions in a Colefax and Fowler trailing fuchsia fabric, olive and cream, to match the curtains.

On the working side of the kitchen there’s an impressive US style side-by-side fridge-freezer, hob, and oven, dishwasher, plate rack, microwave, Belfast sink and washer/dryer.

A flight of stairs, festooned with spy prints of Victorian and Edwardian worthies, heads up from the drawing room to the gallery. On the right is the master bedroom, big, airy and dominated by a magnificent mahogany four-poster bed, hung in indigo-and-white patterned Ralph Lauren cotton with a matching quilt. The buff of the walls is set off by thick cream cotton damask curtains. Two blue velvet Victorian chairs (really comfortable) sit on either side of the small round table.

The ensuite bathroom has a power shower over the bath, and a huge limestone topped washstand with a cool, conical limestone basin on top. There is, as usual, a shaving point and a heated towel-rail.

To the left of the staircase are the two twin rooms and their shared bathroom, one is wallpapered in a subtle ivory and cream, with black painted Victorian beds, and a black dressing table and chair: the other has brass beds, a green and white toile de jouy wallpaper and a chest of drawers painted in the same green and white pattern.

Their bathroom has a marble-topped washstand and a bath with power shower over it.
