The space
BROOK LODGE STORY

We travelled in New Zealand and Australia and stayed in some superb lodges in special places. Our dream was to one day create our own Lodge somewhere very special in the Cotswolds to be enjoyed all year round.
Brook Lodge is that dream fulfilled - A Cotswold hideaway with a great specification and stacks of style located just off a tiny lane overlooking the wonderful Evenlode Valley and Blenheim Palace Estate.
The village shop is five minutes walk, Woodstock (on of the prettiest towns in the Cotswolds) is around five minutes drive away and many of our guest choose to walk instead.
It's a few minutes walk from the Lodge, down to the river for walking and wildlife all year round.
The photographs (credit:Mark Nicholson) show what you will discover at Brook Lodge.

DEEP SLEEP IN A QUIET COTSWOLD SETTING
We have two bedrooms. In the the master bedroom we can offer either a Superking double bed or two 3 foot 6 single beds. The luxury bathroom is a couple of steps away.
Access to the the second bedroom is up some chunky steps, solid and with hand rail but still steps so not for the young or the elderly and THERE IS NOT STANDING ROOM height. Please take look at the photos and make sure that they will suit the people who are planning to stay there.
Families with two children usually choose that the adults sleep in the mezzanine bedroom - it's a lovely space with Cotswold views.

RELAXING INSIDE
Open plan and comfortable. Sofa and leather chairs: Smart HD TV (Samsung) with BT Infinity Internet connection. Lovely views from the lounge area with sliding doors opening onto large deck.
If you are in the mood for cooking, handmade kitchen with views with Electric Oven, Gas Hob, Microwave, Dishwasher and Fridge.
Dining Table to sit four, perfect for Sunday papers (five minute walk to shop) or for time on your lap top

RELAXING OUTSIDE
You have your own large decking area, a private garden with chickens in their own pen and supplying your eggs. Your garden leads into the meadow which is also there for you to enjoy.

If there is more you would like to know please just get in touch. We are here to help and look forward to welcoming you to Brook Lodge.

You have the whole Lodge to enjoy plus large decking area, private garden and access to the meadow.
Beyond that you are just a few steps away to a network of footpaths to explore the countryside and places the are on your doorstep. ...


BLENHEIM PALACE ‘Britain’s Greatest Palace and the birthplace of Winston Churchill – you get a special perspective walking there from Brook Lodge.
Truly spectacular. (details in Brook Lodge)
From Brook Lodge you are overlooking land, managed and owned by Blenheim Palace and there are a number of walking routes into the grounds. There is plenty to explore and ‘secret gates’ with free access (all marked on maps in the lodge) but to visit the Palace and Gardens there is a charge.
We really recommend these walks that offer amazing views and an insight to the Estate itself as you pass working farms and managed countryside.
A visit to Brook Lodge will enable you to really take time to enjoy the Palace and the grounds and to see parts that few ever discover.

A lovely day out from Brook Lodge is exploring the Palace, visiting the town of Woodstock and the grave of William Churchill in nearby Bladon (you could easily extend this to two days of discovery)


WOODSTOCK (details in Brook Lodge)
One of the prettiest towns in the Cotswolds, lots of historic buildings and some really lovely pubs and cafes (see our café and pub recommendations when you arrive at Brook Lodge), its hard to find a disappointing one!

We mention it often but arriving in Woodstock after a walk is a great way to arrive and you can usually take the bus back (every hour, takes ten minutes, no Sunday service). It is a seven minute drive to Woodstock

BICESTER VILLAGE
It's advertised in cities around the world as a must visit British attraction. The advertising works and it can get very, very crowded.
Designer brands at outlet prices have made Bicester Village famous and it seems to be continually expanding.
It’s about 25 minutes to drive to Bicester Village from Brook Lodge. A good tip is to get there early before crowds. If you don’t fancy that, then consider leaving your car at Oxford Parkway Station (free parking) and a 15-20 minute drive from Brook Lodge and take a 10 minute ride to Bicester Village Station.

Oxford
It’s a twenty-five minute drive (more in peak times) or a fifteen- minute train ride from Charlbury (3 miles from Brook Lodge). With a regular service on the main line to London we use this option and as a real bonus it removed the potential parking hassles in the City centre
There are other ways into the City including a bike ride down the Oxfordshire Canal!

Cotswold Walking Route and Cycle Rides
We have lots of options and all have interesting features along the ways, from places to stop an look, or stop and eat! Details in Brook Lodge or chat with us about them.

DETAILS ON THESE PLACES AND MORE WILL BE THERE TO BROWSE THROUGH IN BROOK LODGE

From short easy circular walks that start and finish at Brook Lodge and often include a pub stop to a real stomp in the Cotswolds. Brook Lodge is on the Oxfordshire Way. Lots of variety and we have added fabulous walking routes for this year.

Location

Stonesfield, England, United Kingdom

Stonesfield is a small friendly village, just five minutes drive from Woodstock and Blenheim Palace.
There are no street lights close to Brook Lodge (we'll lend you a torch) and Its a great place for star gazing. You parking is private to you and adjacent to Brook Lodge.
The views as you can see are stunning but you are not isolated.

Antique and vintage furniture restoration, plus running a couple of shops in the Cotswolds keeps me busy. I love travelling with my husband, staying in special places and enjoy walking and cycling. Other members of the family cycle quicker and longer than me though. Like most people I enjoy eating out and think we live in a part of the world where we are spoilt for choice because of the pubs. We do know the area well and some of our favourite places are not the headline tourist attraction and we'd be delighted to share these with those who come to stay at Brook Lodge
