Cotswold Holiday Cottage
Leave the rush and noise of the outside world behind in Norton’s Nook, our humble yet spacious proper stone cottage in the beautiful Cotswold halmet of Fordwells. The cosy dog-friendly cottage can accommodate up to 4 guests and a medium sized four-legged pal. Boasting 2 comfort designed bedrooms, a luxurious king-size bed sits within the sumptuous master suite. The light filled second floor hosts a separate sleeping quarter containing a chic double bed.
Looking for accommodation for up to 8 people? Why not also book Norton’s Lodge? – Another of our holiday cottages, conveniently located next door to Norton’s Nook. Contact us directly if you’re interested in booking both properties and to discuss dates.
Kick back and relax in the snug living area and watch your favourite TV shows on the flat-screen TV or play some games on the Xbox 360. No need to step away from the office either, the cottage presents perfect work from home experience boasting 300mb fibre optic broadband! Wash away the day, relaxing within the modern bathroom. High quality towels, bedding and toiletries are also supplied for your stay.
For the cooks in the group, the kitchen includes an oven, hob and microwave. On sunnier evenings, make use of our enclosed terrace overlooking the cottage garden for alfresco dining and chill out as you watch the sunset from our relaxing seating area.
We have three-step access from the road and the bedrooms are on the first and second floors. The bathroom has an electric shower over the bath. The master bedroom has a deep wardrobe with hanging space. You can also use our BBQ on the terrace – you’ll just need charcoal and firelighters.
Explore the Area
The Cotswolds is in an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB), so guests have the privilege of exploring a multitude of scenic walking and cycling routes within the local fields that spout for miles upon miles. Local pubs are just a short drive away and you’ll also have quick access to Burford, Bourton-on-the-water, Oxford, Woodstock, Chipping Norton and Stow. Bicycle storage is provided, and Bicycles can be leased for a small fee. Though we would recommend bringing boots or wellies and a rain jacket for those refreshing showers!
Nice stay, great location we love the coffee shop in the village and the pub nearby (The Hare) is very good too.
