Renovated in 2018, the Granary is the third of three unique conversions of 17th Century farm buildings in the grounds of an historic old vicarage in tranquil Little Tew, on the edge of the Cotswolds. The Granary offers luxury, private and comfortable accommodation for a couple to use as a base to laze or explore.
The Granary is the conversion of a 17th Century Cotswold stone grain store, offering accommodation over the first and second floors. External stairs with views over the surrounding fields lead up to the Granary’s own front door.

Alternatively pen your first novel at the desk/daydream whilst enjoying views over the walled garden. If all this proves too much, head up the stairs to the King size, white linen bedroom nestled in the eaves. Once again totally private yet with views over the walled garden and surrounding countryside rural remedy is assured. A landing with wardrobe two more steps to a laundry cupboard, with washer/dryer leads you to the luxurious bathroom with freestanding cast iron bath and loo with a view to complete the accommodation.

Great Tew, Englanti, Britannia

A small barn built with friends during a barn raising. Simple, stylish, fun, compact but with sense of space. Deck with hammock extends into fields at back. Edge of Cotswolds, thirty minutes to Oxford, two minutes drive to village of Great Tew.
Built originally as a large playroom/nursery we extended added and re-built it as children started to fly our nest in 2015. Designed and built by John you can see the frame going up at the end of the photos. We are part of the Great Tew Estate and Field End is part of the site called Potato Town. The history of the name is a bit of a mystery but the " Town "consists of a cluster of buildings. Those that border the road are our studios and workshops, our cottage is at right angles to the road and Field End is a building at the back. It is separated by a garden and bordered by a lane, fields and a flower and vegetable garden. Exhibitions and classes run form the workshops but don't impinge at all on life at Field End. Guests have a reserved parking space and separate entrance.
You can walk into the village of Swerford and access lovely country walks directly from us. There is also The Boxing Hare pub which serves good food just 150 metres away. Discover the Cotswold villages of Stow on the Wold and Burford. Closer still the thatched Village of Great Tew with its Famous Pub The Falkland Arms. Hidden away in the village is the recently opened Soho Farmhouse. Daylesford Organic Farmshop for spa treatments and luxury is nearby in the village of Kingham. National Trust properties of Hidcote, Chastleton and Upton are within easy reach as is Blenheim Palace and the town of Woodstock.

Stepping in through the grey-green entrance gate from the road you’ll be greeted by five amphitheatre-style steps up to the front lawn, with a children’s play area to the right including a treehouse on 4ft stilts, a slide and a rope swing all under a beautiful ash tree, and a little wooden playhouse full of garden toys! Beyond the lawn, to the side of the entrance porch, is a patio with a small bistro-style table, chairs and a parasol. Raised borders with fragrant lavender bushes and other bee and bug-friendly plants wrap around the front of the house, providing a colourful border against the wooden frame of this beautiful 1750s barn conversion.

Guidebook: Chipping Norton In this Guidebook section we head over to Chipping Norton, just 8 miles from The Quail House. Tucked high up in Oxfordshire’s portion of the Cotswolds, Chipping Norton is a beautiful market town with an enviable reputation. It is the highest town in the region thanks to its stunning hillside location, with a rich history dating back to the 13th Century when it was known as a bustling wool-trading town; a heritage proven through the great wool church of St. Mary, known for its stunning interiors, and still sitting proudly at the heart of the town. Affectionately known by locals as ‘Chippy’, the town is now very much a bustling hub of culture; its thriving retail and culinary scene attracting visitors from all across the Cotswolds. A general market still takes place every Wednesday, and a Farmer’s Market is held on the morning of every third Saturday. The town is great for anyone looking to hunt for some local treats, with a plethora of independent retailers and antique shops to peruse. The town also has a good number of pubs, restaurants and cafes, whilst culture buffs will love the thriving theatre; a rare addition to a town of this size, famous for its annual pantomime and eclectic programme of music, theatre, dance and comedy. During the summer months, you can enjoy the Lido, a heated, open air, 25m pool (see below). Perfectly positioned to explore the north Cotswolds and Oxfordshire, there’s plenty on offer right on the doorstep to keep all ages entertained. Head off on an exploration of the pretty Cotswold villages which surround the town or take a cultural daytrip to nearby Oxford or Stratford-Upon-Avon; the possibilities are endless. Sightseeing & Activities Thanks to Chipping Norton’s rich heritage, there’s plenty on offer locally to see and do for culture vultures and history buffs alike. Start off by exploring the landmarks of the town itself. Take in the beautiful Town Hall (a proud symbol of the town’s former borough days), before visiting the Almshouses – one of the town’s key landmarks dating back to the first half of the 1600s, provided kindly by former resident Henry Cornish upon his death to house widows of the town. Chipping Norton Museum, located on the High Street, showcases memorable artefacts from throughout the town’s history dating all the way back to the Roman period, making it a great pit-stop for those keen to learn more about the town through the ages. Chipping Norton Theatre is also a must-visit, should there be anything that tickles your fancy playing during your stay. Further afield, the many sights and attractions of the wider Cotswolds will afford you plenty to see and do. Start off by heading to The Rollright Stones, an ancient stone circle spanning nearly 2,000 years of Neolithic and Bronze Age development located in the nearby village of Great Rollright. Just outside the town sits Bliss Tweed Mill, an impressive display of 19th Century manufacturing prowess, immediately recognisable by its iconic dome-based chimney, which makes it look more like a lavish mansion than a tweed mill. Now luxury apartments following its official closure in the 1980s, the mill is still well worth driving past as one of the town’s most famous visual landmarks. The National Trust’s Chastleton House and Garden, an ancient country house spanning 400 years of history, is also just a stone’s throw away in Moreton-in-Marsh, whilst the acclaimed Whichford Pottery is just a 15-minute drive for those in search of a pretty souvenir from their travels. For Kids (little and big) Blenheim Palace Home to the 12th Duke of Marlborough and family, and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Blenheim Palace is a spectacular masterpiece of architecture sure to wow visitors of all ages. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, there’s plenty to see and do here: explore the Palace and its priceless collections; amble through the stunning park and gardens; get stuck in at the Family Forest School or check out the Palace’s busy schedule of events and attractions, running throughout the year. The Lido A fantastic heated outdoor pool in Chipping Norton, open from April to September each year, with lifeguards on duty and a snack bar offering tasty treats after a refreshing dip. Perfect for when those hot, sunny Cotswold days come knocking. With its heated 25m pool, The Lido is an oasis in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. Whether you’re a serious swimmer clocking up the lengths in our early morning sessions or a family looking for an afternoon’s outdoor fun, The Lido has something for everyone. Whichford Pottery Home of the world-famous Whichford Pottery, where beautiful flowerpots have been hand-crafted here in the Cotswolds for over 40 years, you can meet the makers in the bustling workshop and take inspiration from their stunning garden, before choosing your own memento to take home. Chastleton House and Gardens An ancient country house with beautiful surrounding gardens, acting as a time-capsule of family life spanning an impressive 400 years. Built between 1607 and 1612, this rare gem of a Jacobean country house was owned by the same family until 1991, when it had largely remained unchanged. It now offers a fascinating insight into years gone by. Time to Relax Bamford Haybarn Spa, Daylesford A beautiful wellness retreat at the acclaimed Daylesford Farm Shop, offering a range of pampering massage, facial and stress reduction treatments with an emphasis on the use of a holistic approach to wellbeing. Pick up some luxurious Bamford Bath & Body products whilst you’re there, all made in England using natural, responsibly sourced, organic ingredients. Cowshed Spa, Soho Farmhouse A members and guests-only paradise at the famed Soho Farmhouse. Relax with a pampering massage, manicure or pedicure, unwind in the steam room, sauna and hot tubs or take a refreshing dip in the indoor pool; with all treatments undertaken with the famed Cowshed Spa toiletry range. The Spa at Barnsley House For the ultimate in luxury, look no further than Barnsley House – an iconic hotel tucked away in the picturesque Cotswold village of Barnsley – where a dedicated spa hidden in the gardens offers all visitors a truly memorable day of R&R. The glass-walled spa really is the ultimate in luxury retreats, boasting an outdoor heated hydrotherapy pool, herbaceous sauna and indoor/outdoor lounge relaxation areas. For Nature Lovers Batsford Arboretum The 56-acre arboretum at Batsford is situated just a mile west of the historic market town of Moreton-in-Marsh in the heart of the Cotswolds. A former home to the famous Mitford family, interest in the arboretum begins in late winter when the snowdrops, aconites and early flowering daffodils spring into life, followed by magnolias, hellebores, fritillaries and the beautiful Japanese ornamental cherries – stars of the show from late March until mid-April. The handkerchief tree is another showstopper in May, as are the beautiful wildflower meadows which bloom in high summer. Hidcote Manor Garden One of the finest Arts and Crafts gardens in the country, Hidcote was created by American horticulturist Major Lawrence Johnston circa 1905. Divided into a series of garden ‘rooms’, each garden boasts its own character, intertwined with narrow pathways, beautiful views and plants bursting to life at every turn. A must-visit for the green fingered. Kiftsgate Court Gardens Located on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment, this family-run garden has been carefully cultivated by three generations. Featuring a beautiful revolving plan of blooms, which burst into life throughout the year, visitors can discover the garden’s wild garden, orchard, mound and avenue, plus a fantastic water garden and elegant fountain. Events Chipping Norton Theatre The theatre produces a wide variety of plays and screens films for all ages. Cornbury Music Festival (July) A one-of-a-kind music festival in the heart of beautiful Cotswold countryside, taking place each July with a stellar line-up of live music, food and entertainment for all ages to enjoy.

Family-friendly, it’s a great choice for those looking for a memorable day out, with day-tickets available over the course of the weekend. Walking You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to walking opportunities in and around Chipping Norton, its prime hillside position meaning there are miles of beautiful surrounding landscapes to explore. For those in search of a gentle stroll, try the walk from Chipping Norton to Over Norton; a gentle 2.5-mile circular walk across undulating countryside, waymarked for ease. For those in search of something slightly more challenging, the 5.5-mile ‘Mills and Meadows’ walk between Kingham and Chipping Norton is a great option, taking in the pretty meadowland which sits between the two famed Cotswold towns. For those keen to visit the ancient Rollright Stones, a 5.25-mile circular walk, starting from the village of Salford, provides the perfect opportunity to discover them on-foot, beginning in a beautiful valley before leading you to the mystical stones.

About the village The quiet and quaint Oxfordshire village of Swerford sits on the River Swere, four miles north-east of Chipping Norton. The hustle and bustle of the more popular Cotswold towns and villages has by-passed Swerford, perhaps why it is so well-preserved and picture-perfect. The village was first recorded in the Doomsday Book (1086) when Robert D’Oyley (a Norman who accompanied King William during his invasion of England) became the local landowner. The remains of a 12th century motte and bailey castle is open for visits, as well as the 13th century St Mary’s Church - partly built from stones taken from the castle. Often referred to as a ‘village in two parts’, Swerford’s Church End and East End are separated by a mile of countryside known as ‘Between Towns’. Hillside Cottage is in East End. Walkers will enjoy the easily accessible network of local footpaths, including one direct from Hillside Cottage to The Boxing Hare, and a 2.5-mile walk to the pretty village of Hook Norton. Hooky, as it’s affectionately called by locals, is well known to beer enthusiasts for its Victorian Tower brewery and delicious brews. Daily tours of the Hook Norton Brewery provide a chance to sample Hooky, Haymaker and Cotswold Pale beers - visitors may also like to eat breakfast, lunch or light meals at the Malthouse Kitchen Café and visit the free museum. Country lovers who prefer to visit the busier Cotswold towns, but stay in a quieter setting, will enjoy Hillside Cottage and Swerford’s rural charm. Sightseeing & Activities Swerford is less than 10 miles from several towns and villages, including Banbury (8.5 miles), Chipping Norton (5.3 miles) and Hook Norton (1.8 miles). The centre of Oxford is a 45-minute drive away (a handy Park & Ride is a 42-minute drive away), while several other well-known Cotswold towns and villages are within 20 miles, including Bourton-on-the-Water (17 miles), Stow-on-the-Wold (13 miles) and Moreton-in-Marsh (12.5 miles). Hillside Cottage is also conveniently located for visits to Bicester Village (18 miles), the designer outlet shopping centre, and Soho Farmhouse (4.5 miles), a popular wedding venue. Little and Big Kids Blenheim Palace Home to the 12th Duke of Marlborough and family, and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Blenheim Palace is a spectacular masterpiece of architecture sure to wow visitors of all ages. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, there’s plenty to see and do here: explore the Palace and its priceless collections; amble through the stunning park and gardens; get stuck in at the Family Forest School or check out the Palace’s busy schedule of events and attractions, running throughout the year.

Batsford Arboretum The 56-acre arboretum at Batsford is situated just a mile west of the historic market town of Moreton-in-Marsh in the heart of the Cotswolds. A former home to the famous Mitford family, interest in the arboretum begins in late winter when the snowdrops, aconites and early flowering daffodils spring into life, followed by magnolias, hellebores, fritillaries and the beautiful Japanese ornamental cherries – stars of the show from late March until mid-April. The handkerchief tree is another show-stopper in May, as are the beautiful wildflower meadows which bloom in high summer. Hidcote Manor Garden One of the finest Arts and Crafts gardens in the country, Hidcote was created by American horticulturist Major Lawrence Johnston circa 1905.

Beautiful, quiet, two-bedroom cottage on the edge of the Cotswolds. The house is at the end of a row of three cottages dating from the 1850s, in a tiny hamlet, and situated where the lane ends, so it couldn’t be quieter. You’ll fall asleep to the burble of the River Glyme out of the bedroom window, and wake up to birdsong.
The house has three floors, with a lounge, main kitchen/living room, porch, two double bedrooms, and bathroom. It has recently been redecorated and has new wool carpets. There is an ecologically-friendly wood pellet boiler system for central heating and hot water, and a log burner in the living room for extra cosiness in winter. It is fully equipped with TV, Freesat, hifi, fibre broadband, electric range oven with induction hob, washing machine, and dishwasher. There are lots of books (including for children), maps, and board games. Basic cooking ingredients are available, and there is a herb patch just outside the door. Outside there is a garden office with desk and digital piano (the perfect spot for finishing your novel, PhD, or symphony!). The garden is on three levels, with a large deck, barbecue, flower beds, and pond. It is very private, and slightly separate from the house itself, a few metres up a path shared with the two adjoining cottages. There are many options for beautiful country walks, include footpaths starting just outside the door. The Crown Inn at Church Enstone is a 20-minute walk along a country path, and there is a local shop and another pub a similar distance. Nearby Chipping Norton, Woodstock, and Charlbury have a range of supermarkets, shops, pubs, and restaurants. Soho Farmhouse is five miles away: a five-minute drive, or walkable via footpaths across the fields. Blenheim Palace (Woodstock), Daylesford, Oxford, and famous Cotswold villages such as Great Tew, Stow-on-the-Wold, and Burford are within easy reach for day trips. Cleveley is 15 miles north of Oxford. It is a 10-minute walk from a bus stop with regular services from Oxford or Chipping Norton, or a 10-minute taxi / 25-minute cycle from the railway station at Charlbury, served by direct trains from London, Oxford, and Worcester. Note that the heating system is solid fuel (wood pellets), which means refilling the boiler with a 10/15kg bag up to once a day in winter and once a week in summer.
