We had a wonderful 2 night stay. The cottage itself is a unique and beautiful building, located in delightful grounds. The interior has been very tastefully designed, and updated to a very high standard.

Local Amenities

Hook Norton is on the fringe of the Cotswolds, therefore avoiding heavy tourist traffic, allowing you to enjoy this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Hook Norton is close to the popular Cotswolds market towns of Chipping Norton, Moreton-in-Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold, and has many stunning countryside walks right on the doorstep. Soho Farmhouse at Great Tew only 6.6 miles away.

The village is particularly well served with a village shop and post office, butchers, two pubs, famous local Hook Norton Brewery, doctor and dental surgeries, and library.

Chipping Norton

Perched on the highest point in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, Chipping Norton was once a centre for the Cotswold wool trade and was given a Royal charter by King John in 1205. The medieval Guildhall and St Mary’s Church reflect the prosperity brought by the wool trade. Later, sheep farming was largely replaced by arable, but agriculture remained important in this part of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. Many of the original houses around the market place were rebuilt in the 18th century with fashionable Georgian frontages.

Renowned for its antique shops and diverse shopping offer, including a regular market – Chipping Norton retains a robust living, working market town atmosphere. There is good choice of places to eat and top quality entertainment at the wonderful Theatre, famous for its pantomime and visiting world class performers.

Chipping Norton is an excellent base for exploring further afield: easily accessible by road and rail, right on the edge of the Cotswolds and lying between Oxford and Stratford upon Avon.

From Banbury, take the A361 signed to Chipping Norton and after passing the village of Bloxham, turn right to Hook Norton. Continue through Milcombe and on to Hook Norton. Enter the village on Station Road. Just before the right hand bend onto E. End turn left down a narrow road. There is a signpost that this narrow road is the dead-end of East End road.  Continue down the road until you see a solid wooden electric gate with the sign Crooked Cottage.
