Sandown Cottage Cotswolds, England

Sandown Cottage Cotswolds Pet/Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage ideal for golf with sailing nearby in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, England


Sleeps 4, 1 double ensuite, 1 twin ensuite, indoor swimming pool, spa & gym

  • Master bedroom with king size four poster and ensuite bathroom.
  • Twin room with two single four poster beds and an ensuite shower room.
  • Large open plan drawing room/dining room/kitchen with open fire.
  • Kitchen with island unit, fridge freezer, hob and oven, microwave, Belfast sink, dishwasher and dish rack, washing machine and tumble dryer.
  • Terrace overlooking walled garden with garden furniture, umbrella and barbeque.

Sandown occupies pride of place in the courtyard, set back behind the three central arches.

It used to be the carriage house, and its large open-plan drawing-room/dining-room/kitchen has truly noble proportions, with an 11′ ceiling, and length and width to match.

The imposing symmetry of the doors and windows called for an equal elegance and sophistication in the decor. so there’s a deep moulded cornice, and the walls are papered in subtle grey-green, a good background for the Ian Sanderson’s yellow-and-cream striped linen curtains.

The focal point is the fine antique pine mantelpiece taken from one of the rooms in Bruern Abbey. Clustered round it are a comfortable chesterfield in green Lelievre velvet with a handsome old paisley shawl slung over the back, and a couple of chairs upholstered in Mulberry paisley. The cosiest place on a cold day is the club fender in front of the open fire, or the big paisley ottoman strategically placed for trays or magazines on the needlework rug.

Beside the fire on the left is a tall glazed Victorian bookcase in stripped pine, and on the other side a desk. Above it all gleams the brass of a Dutch six-light candelabra.

The kitchen area is paved with pale terracotta tiles laid diagonally, and the centrally placed pine island unit, which houses the microwave, is surfaced half in granite and half in pine, with sockets built-in for appliances. It was specially designed to take the machines – like the food processor – which are too heavy and bulky to store in the cupboard units, and to give a good large extra work surface. Over it hangs an oval wrought iron rack for saucepans and utensils. The units are painted warm ivory, and topped with brown granite, and there’s a row of highly decorative Mason’s Ironstone plates above.

The master bedroom is on this floor, its mahogany four-poster magnificently dressed in ochre-and-cream silk, striped with watery blues and greens. There’s a 19th century mahogany chest of drawers, and a rosewood desk with a deep green leather top, made by Terence Conran as a young man, pre Habitat. The ensuite bathroom is painted the same buff as the bedroom and there’s a power shower over the bath. The pièce de resistance is a fine old marble-topped French washstand in pitch pine, brought over from Normandy.

The stairs are lined with old animal prints. In the upstairs bedroom, there are two single four-posters dressed in a blue-and-white Provençal print, and an antique blue-and-white faux bamboo table. The walls are off-white, and the ensuite wet room is tiled in marble from floor to ceiling. There is a power shower and washstand running across under the window.

Down a flight of stairs outside is a large terrace, with a wonderful view of the lawns and the long border of the walled garden. Rose- and clematis- covered trellises on both sides combine with beds full of viburnums, roses, phlox and lilies to give privacy for al fresco dining.

There is a property above Sandown Cottage.
