You’ve finally found it! Norton’s lodge is one of the finest getaways the Cotswolds has to offer. Indulge yourself in a 5-star rural escape within the quaint hamlet of Fordwells.

This peaceful getaway is the perfect venue for your next retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You shall be enchanted with the harmoniously captivating valley surrounded by the rolling meadows of the English countryside.

The space
This humble yet spacious proper stone cottage can accommodate up to 4 guests and of course your four-legged pal. Boasting 2 opulently designed bedrooms, a luxurious king-size bed sits within the sumptuous master suite. The light filled second floor hosts a separate sleeping quarters containing two comfy singles. Wash away the day, relaxing within bucolically decorated bathroom.

Dining alfresco? Host a group of 4 for a sizzling BBQ in our tempting terrace, whilst you embrace your very own cottage garden.

Seeking some fun? Break out & embrace the area! Guests have the privilege of exploring a multitude of scenic walk & cycle routes within the local fields that spout for miles upon miles. Bicycle storage is provided, and Bicycles can be leased for a small fee. Though we would recommend wearing boots or wellies and a rain jacket for those refreshing showers! If you’d rather travel “farther afield”, engross yourself in the depths of culture in the surrounding areas of Oxford & Chipping Norton!

Take the opportunity to visit the award-winning pretty village of Bourton-on-the-Water for a unique day out, the miniature village display is a must! The whole family can put their problem-solving skills to the test, adventuring through the Dragonfly Maze. Lastly for the animal lovers we couldn’t not recommend a trip to the Birdland Park & Gardens, home to the Cotswolds very own Penguin families!

For the foodies of the group, cook up a storm in the newly fitted cool, light, contemporary styled country kitchen equipped with state-of-the-art appliances. This will give you the unique chance to savour the finest produce Daylesford Organic Farm has to offer. Hanging up the chef’s hat for the night? No problem! Savour some of the finest traditional Cotswold whilst ruffling your taste buds within the delicate tranquillity of The Swan Inn, PS: we personally recommend their Gourmet Burger Thursdays!

Guest access
This marvel of a property is tucked away, leaving the noise & rush of the outside world behind. Upon arrival complimentary parking on site. Guests will be embraced by the property’s warmth entering through either the front entrance or rear passage. You won’t have any fear of those sharp cold evenings cosying up to our top of the range eco burner. No need to step away from the office either, the cottage presents perfect work from home experience boasting 300mb fibre optic broadband!

Other things to note
The hamlet of Fordwells is gorgeous and the neighbours are a friendly bunch who have lived there for many years. There is a shop in Leafield - about a mile away if you need something last minute and Aldi, Morissons and Spar in Carterton which is 10 minutes away. We provide a full cleaning service which follows strict guidance on Covid-19 management.

Amazing local pubs combined with a country life experience of walking or shopping in Burford, Witney or Oxford, or any of the stunning villages that exist in the Cotswolds. Amazing pubs such as The Lamb at Crawley and the Maytime Inn are highly recommended.
