You’ve finally found it! Norton’s lodge is one of the finest getaways the Cotswolds has to offer. Indulge yourself in a high quality 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 our bucolically decorated bathroom.

Dining alfresco? Host a group of 4 for a sizzling BBQ in our tempting enclosed terrace (good for dogs too), 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 bringing 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, Stow & 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 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!

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.
