Beautiful house, very stylish and comfortable. Be prepared for a slightly bumpy track to the house, but it's totally driveable. We had everything we needed and had a wonderful weekend. Would recommend.

Full Description & House Rules

A funky-meets-contemporary hideaway in the heart of the countryside; perfect for group getaways or family gatherings.

Tucked away down a winding private track just outside of the peaceful hamlet of Foscot is this seriously cool cottage for up to 12 guests; an eclectic haven with outdoor and indoor space a-plenty, perfect for families and groups alike. A traditional single-story cottage from the outside, this vibrant home comes to life as soon as you step inside, filled to the brim with eye-catching artwork, bright pops of colour and unique furnishings; all sourced from owners Adam and Rowan’s private collection of quirky international artefacts.

The Living Space

The cottage’s contemporary-cool feel hits you as soon as you enter the bright reception hall, with walls filled-to-the-brim with a mixture of eclectic artwork greeting you as you step into the light-filled space. Just off the hallway sit the cottage’s two main living areas: a cosy snug, complete with log fire, sink-in sofas and vibrant purple walls (plus a cleverly-concealed TV) and an impressive adjoining living/kitchen/dining space spanning the rear of the cottage. This spacious open-plan hub boasts a stylish 10-seater oak dining table (plus a cute 4-seater table for little ones), high vaulted ceilings, beautiful floor-to-ceiling glass doors and a comfy lounge area at the far end; complete with TV and crackling wood-burner. The well-equipped kitchen benefits from a triple oven, gas hob, large American-style fridge and dishwasher, brought to life by vivid green cupboards and quirky mosaic tiles. Leading through the living space at the far end is a separate annexed studio area, complete with sofas, wood-burner, 4-seater dining table and kitchenette. Carrying on the impressive contemporary-meets-traditional feel of the property, this additional studio space homes a hidden attic single bedroom, found at the top of a quirky built-in staircase, plus a fully-equipped shower room and toilet, making it great for teens or older guests in search of a little privacy.

Bedrooms

Can be found throughout the property, sleeping up to 8 adults and 4 children comfortably:

Bedroom 1

Tucked away down a book-lined corridor along from the entrance hall is the master bedroom, benefitting from a sink-in super king bed, en-suite shower room and French doors opening directly onto the property’s sheltered front garden. In here, the owners’ passion for art shines through the painted mural wall behind the bed; hand-painted by owner Rowan as an homage to her family home in southern India. A stand-alone crib also fits comfortably at the foot of bed for those travelling with babies.

Found through a unique stable-door just off the entrance hall, Bedroom 2 homes a king-sized bed (configurable as a twin) and bright, Moroccan-inspired interiors, evident through its sparkling lantern lights, cool blue hues and pretty, tiled wardrobe. We love the roll-top bath taking pride of place in the room itself, plus there’s a handy en-suite toilet room, too.

Bedrooms 3 – 5

Hidden behind a secret cupboard door in the entrance hall sit three further bedrooms, all benefitting from their own shared family bathroom. Bedroom 3 is great for adults, with its king-sized bed and French doors leading directly onto the garden, whilst Bedroom 4 can be used for big kids or those who don’t mind sharing thanks to its twin-bed setup. Bedroom 5 is definitely best for younger guests, with full-sized bunk beds, a great toy collection and plenty of space for playing, plus its own set of French doors leading onto the grounds.

Mezzanine Bedroom 2

A den-lover’s dream, Bedroom 6 is perfect for younger guests or adults who don’t mind a bit of a squeeze. Able to accommodate up to two guests on two mattress-beds (one single, one small double), one is hidden in the rafters up a small wooden ladder; perfect for mini-explorers in search of a hideaway. Located just off the entrance hall, the Rudyard Kipling-esque wallpaper will speak to book-lovers of all ages and it’s perfect to use as a study for those who need a little peace and quiet.

Mezzanine Bedroom 1

Another great room for intrepid explorers, this small annex room, sleeping one on a single mattress-bed, is hidden away up a flight of steep wooden stairs in the studio; great for teens and agile adults, not so great for those less mobile. The studio also homes a sofa bed which can accommodate two if needed. Be warned, the sky lights have no blinds on them, so it’s best for early-risers!

What’s Outside

Brock Cottage offers blissful seclusion by the bucketful thanks to its rural location and sweeping one-acre garden, surrounding the property like a pretty, green cocoon. Mostly lawned (great for kids wanting to stretch their legs), mature trees and shrubbery reward the garden with complete privacy, with a trampoline and swing to keep little ones happy for hours. The cottage’s rear garden, accessed through the kitchen/diner’s sliding doors, also benefits from a large paved dining area complete with outdoor dining table and charcoal BBQ; sheltered from the elements by a wisteria-strewn pergola.

This is rural living, so amenities do involve a short drive. The nearest convenience store (Londis) can be found in Kingham (5-minute drive), or you can head to Daylesford Farm to pick up some essentials (8-minute drive) if you’re not fussed about the price tag. Stow-on-the-Wold offers the nearest supermarket (Tesco) with a Marks and Spencer service station for little bits and pieces. Nearby Chipping Norton (15-minute drive) also offers a well-equipped Sainsbury’s. We’d recommend a grocery delivery during your stay; Ocado, Sainsbury’s and Tesco all deliver to the cottage.
