About this listing

The Old Chequer is situated in the hamlet of Draycott and is Grade II listed, former 17th century public house, one of the oldest houses in the village, dating back to the 1600s. The property has been sympathetically restored and features an inglenook fireplace, exposed beams, Cotswold stone walls and flagstone floor. Outside there is an enclosed pretty cottage garden with patio area.
Draycott is a small hamlet located between Moreton-in-Marsh and Blockley. Easily accessible from London with a two hour drive or a ninety minute train journey from Paddington to Moreton-in-Marsh, making it easy to escape to the countryside and witness the marvels of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty including nearby Bourton-on-the-Water, Chipping Campden and Stow-on-the-Wold, to name but a few.

The Old Chequer is an amazing cottage from which you can easily explore the cotswolds. It is so cosy and well equipped and the interior is authentic. At our arrival we were presented with flowers and a hamper with Cotswold products which we enjoyed very much. Having experienced the atmosphere in this stunning cottage, we really recommend everyone to spend some days in The Old Chequer.

We enjoyed our stay in the Cotswolds immensely and the Old Chequer was the perfect location for exploring the area. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped and the welcome hamper provided delicious local fare, including a Victoria Sponge! Directions were a bit confusing but found it in the end, was a bit of a walk to nearest pub, but the food was well worth it!!
