Bettys Cottage is an idyllic, end of terrace thatched cottage situated in the beautifully un-spoilt village of Taynton, just a couple of miles from Burford. Oozing charm and character, this old country dame has recently been given a facelift and we think you'll agree that its funky new look marries well with its undeniable Cotswold charm.
Taking centre stage is a bold glass room style kitchen diner which not only injects style but is perfectly placed to take advantage of the very pretty & completely private garden to the rear of the property. Sociable cooks can enjoy a truly inspirational (not to mention calming) view and chatting over a glass of wine whilst keeping an eye on children playing in the garden has never been easier!
As well as table and chairs for 6, the kitchen area is fully equipped with double oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher and microwave and there's a larder for all your culinary supplies.
An adjacent utility room houses a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Perfect for multi generational families, there's now a smart and cosy double bedroom on the ground floor where you'all also find a shower room with walk-in shower, washbasin and WC.
The light and airy living room features original flagstone flooring dating from 1740 as well an impressive inglenook fireplace* guaranteed to bring a glow after a long country walk. There's ample comfy seating or an appealing window seat if you like to keep an eye on the outside world. For those who like to unwind with a good film, there a large LCD TV with freeview and dvd player
Wooden stairs rise and turn to the first floor.
The Master Bedroom has a double bed, bedside tables with lamps, chest of drawers and an LCD TV with Freeview.
Bedroom Two has two single beds, bed side tables and shelving for storage.
The Bathroom has a bath with overhead shower, washbasin, heated towel rail and WC.
A private garden at the rear includes lawns, flower beds and fruit trees as well as a patio area alongside the glass room leading to decking with table, chairs x 6 and a parasol. The front overlooks a small front garden on a very quiet road offering parking outside the cottage.
Need to Know
*The fireplace is available for use in the winter months (1st October – 1st April). A welcome basket of logs is provided. The fireplace chimney is closed-off during the summer months but remains an attractive feature of the property.
A travel cot and stair gate can be provided upon request.
Parking is available right outside the cottage. A driveway does also provide parking for one car, however it is narrow and not recommended for modern family cars. It will accommodate a car if first it is unloaded then carefully reversed into the driveway with the front end facing the road.
Please note that the stairs are a little steep and uneven and thus the cottage may not be suitable for people with restricted mobility or toddlers.
