The generous modern kitchen is a real hub to the house with plenty of space for large self-catering groups allowing all to get stuck in with their house party duties! Extremely well equipped with ample pots and pans, there is an Aga and also two gas ovens for your use. Across the garden the additional barn has a perfect catering kitchen.
If you'd rather spend your self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).
A tempting choice of nearby eateries include fine dining opportunities, to quintessentially English pub fare in the nearby villages. The Bell at Charlbury is well worth a visit. Local merchants are nearby to deliver your hand picked selection prior to arrival.
