Spaciously arranged across three flooors, this historic and characterful cottage is an ideal base for exploring this and other popular Cotswolds towns/villages.
According to local history this cottage was reserved for the town's 'Toll Collector' hundreds of years ago when the town was the centre for the region's wool and farming trade. In fact we are told the cottage contains the oldest window in Moreton!! Although much has changed, the wonky floors, flagstone floors downstairs and inglenook fireplace all give this home a very special charm. There are three bedrooms spread across the three floors (via steepish stairs). This cottage is suitable for families, friends or couples as it combines a central location with easy access to the shops and pubs in Moreton - all just minutes away.
Delightful, convenient and welcoming this historic cottage is spot on!

Moreton-in-Marsh is an attractive market town situated in the northern Cotswolds at the head of the Evenlode valley, on the Fosse Way, and mid way between Chipping Norton and Stow on the Wold. Hundreds of years ago, it was once a major stopping point on a Roman road which travelled from the south coast all the way to Lincoln. Much of the towns architecture is still evident and displays history and classic signs of the region's 'style'. As you would expect the town has a long history including being a stopping location for the old coaching route from London to Worcester, hence several coaching inns that still exist today. Additionally, there is The Four Shires Stone is about two miles out of the town - the meeting place of four counties: Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Oxfordshire.
Today the town has a great selection of shops including teashops, restaurants, antiques and art galleries. There are many delightful Cotswolds villages within a short drive with more of the well known hotspots such as Bourton on the Water, Burford and Stow on the Wold very close by. Warwick and Warwick Castle plus Stratford upon Avon are nearby also.
Add to this the fact that there is a train station in Moreton (just 5 mins walk away also) with direct access to Oxford and London, a great location for sure!!
You have good transport links to other villages/towns via bus and train links.
The property has a £100 damages deposit payable 1 week before you go.

I work for Manor Cottages! We are a boutique cottage agency specialising in holiday properties in the Cotswolds and Bath region, an area about 1 -2 hours to the west of London (depending on where you are travelling to of course). We visit and and check all of our cottages and in many cases actually manage them too. Either way, you can be certain of the standard and style and description of the property being of a high standard and if it is more basic then we'll make sure you know this.
We're friendly, we're approachable and (of course) we're based in the area so we know it like the back of our hands. What we're not, however, is a large multi-national company stuck in a call centre with thousands of cottages - you will be pleased to know.
Finally you'll be pleased to know that any property we advertise really exists! Not that we're pointing fingers at anyone out there, but we do get to hear of some horror stories of cottages not existing when a customer arrives..... imagine that.
Anyway, we are here to help you and help you get the cottage holiday you want and are looking for.
