This holiday home comes with 3 bedrooms, a TV, and a kitchen with a dishwasher.Lovely ‘lived in’ feel to the cottage, we especially liked the sunny conservatory overlooking the garden.Each room features a flat-screen TV, cafetiere coffee and tea-making facilities, Egyptian cotton bed linen and a modern en-suite shower. Located in Chipping Norton, within 19 km of Blenheim Palace, Upper Court Barn is an accommodation offering garden views.
"Chipping" means 'market', revealing the town's past importance as the main commercial centre for the Evenlode valley.
The surrounding Cotswolds were one of the wealthiest parts of England in the Middle Ages, owing to their production of wool; Chipping Norton was one of the beneficiaries of this trade.
For those living close by, there are several bus services that meet at Chipping Norton, most notably the S3 (that travels to Oxford, stopping off at Woodstock, Enstone and other places) and the number 50 to Stratford.
For those coming from further afield, coming into Chippy by car is best advised.
For such a small town, the best way to get around Chippy is by foot.
The town is not very wheelchair-friendly and in some places steep hills may cause potential problems for the semi infirm or people with baby buggies.
Chipping Norton also holds host to very nice bookshop, Jaffe & Neale, and a well run Oxfam bookshop for bookworms and record collectors alike.
Chipping Norton is not the most dangerous place, but sensible precautions should always be taken.
The bar contains period features and offers views of the Cotswold Hills.
