The space
Message to guest regarding COVID-19

Our properties are meticulously cleaned between visits and deep cleaned every month. Due to the current situation we are now also following Airbnb’s enhanced cleaning protocol. This means preparing the house may take longer than usual, so we hope our guests will appreciate that they may not be able to check in as early as normal or as has been previously agreed.

During the Covid-19 restrictions we ask that guests bring their own towels. All throws and scatter cushions will be removed from the property. Cleaning products will be provided in the bathrooms and kitchen. We encourage guests to clean bathrooms after use.

It is possible to set up tents in the garden, in order to facilitate social distancing. Guests can bring their own or use our tents. Please ask for details.

We ask that our guests be particularly considerate about noise during this sensitive period.

Our beautiful Cotswold Stone house is traditional designed but with contemporary interiors and facilities. Please contact Stephanie if the dates you want are not listed as available.

The house has 6 spacious bedrooms, all ensuite, and all with stunning views. There is a comfortable sitting room with log fireplace and large TV. Also a large dining hall with long oak table and a fabulous kitchen with AGA and a circular dining table. All the rooms boast the most wonderful views over the surrounding countryside and all have french doors opening onto the terrace and garden. The house is open plan on the ground floor with the rooms flowing into each other with the dining hall in the centre.

We now have a Hot Tub. This is suitable for 6 people. There is a £150 charge for the use of the tub so please ask for details. We also have a table tennis table, darts board and a croquet set so lots of fun things to do in the garden.

The house is wonderful throughout the year, whether it is enjoying the sunshine in the summer months, or basking in the warmth of a log fire in the chilly winter. We love Christmas at Charingworth and the house will be festively decorated with Christmas trees, candles and decorations throughout December.

Please abide by the house rules regarding noise. No amplifiers are permitted, unless by prior agreement.

The house is also available for small weddings receptions and family events. We do not allow weddings with large marquees.

We are very excited because we now have ultra fast internet , supposedly 300mbps but of course it's not quite as fast as that in reality. Still it is very fast especially for a rural location.

The house has 6 good sized bedrooms and will comfortably accommodate 2 or more families, with comfortable fold up beds and sofa beds available in the bedrooms for children or adults. There is also a sofa bed in the sitting room. It is also suitable for larger number, of up to 24 people, who don't mind sharing bedrooms and bathrooms. The bedrooms are on 2 floors and all are a good size. All the beds are made up with high quality, white, high-thread cotton linen. Extra fold up beds or cots can be provided in any other the bedrooms - please just let me know and they'll be set up for you.

Please note that for more than 12 guests there is a charge of £105/person capped at £420/night. So this means after 16 guests there are no extra charges. This covers the extra costs of setting the house up for larger numbers of guests.

Soft white towels, complimentary shampoo, conditioner and bath and shower gel are provided in each bathroom.

Other things to note
The Churchill Arms, Paxford.

We are very excited that The Churchill will be offering our guests a complimentary bottle of prosecco, when they book a table for lunch or dinner. Nick Deverell-Smith, the chef and proprietor, was Head Chef at The Dean Street Townhouse, part of The Soho House Group until recently. The Churchill is his first solo venture. Please contact Stephanie for further details

The Churchill is about 8 minutes drive and about 40 minutes walk. We wouldn't advise walking at night, as there is no street lighting. If you don't want to drive, we have a 7-seater car and driver, which our guest can book (subject to availability, for a small charge) or the restaurant can help you book taxis.

Location

Charingworth, England, United Kingdom

Charingworth is a quiet hamlet on the edge of Ebrington. There are fantastic walks nearby, a great local pub and lots to do nearby. The house is in the Cotswolds but also very close tonStratford upon Avon, Oxford and Warwick.

The house is located in the middle of the Cotswold countryside. This is a rural location and the nearest village of Ebrington has a farm shop and a village pub.

We always knew that our local pub, The Ebrington Arms, was special. Apparently The Times agrees. In 2017 it received the accolade of Best Village Inn and also listed it as one of the in the best summer pubs in the UK. In 2018 The Times again recognised it, by including it in their list of best 50 UK pubs. The pub is a short walk away in Ebrington. It's open all day and serves lunch and dinner (booking recommended) as well as snacks at other times. It also offers a very superior take-away fish and chips service.

We are very lucky because we have several really good pubs nearby. The Churchill Arms in Paxford also has to get a special mention for excellent food and service. The chef/owner Nick Deverill-Smith, who used to be head chef at The Dean Street Townhouse (part of the Soho House Group) has appeared on Saturday Kitchen Live alongside Michel Roux. He and his excellent staff run a fantastic establishment.

A new farm shop and cafe has recently opened in the nearby village. This is about 20 minutes walk from the house and close to the village pub. Vegetable Matters offers 'fresh local produce and a warm welcome'.

There are general stores in Chipping Campden and Shipston-on-Stour which are both within 4 miles of the property. There is a Waitrose in Stratford-upon-Avon which is about 15 minutes drive away. Ideally you will need a car, although, if guests prefer not to drive. they can arrange supermarket deliveries from Waitrose, Sainsburys and Tesco.

The house is surrounded by beautiful rural Cotswold countryside with many public footpaths, including The Cotswold Way. There are numerous Cotswold stone villages and towns nearby, including Chipping Campden, Broadway, Upper and Lower Slaughter and Stow-on-the-Wold. It is also close to Stratford-upon-Avon and an ideal location for visiting both the theatre and this historic town. Oxford and Blenheim Palace, in Woodstock, are also only a short drive away.
