Located in the heart of the village of Bloxham, The Old Dairy is one of the most historically significant and unique properties in the village, offering both the convenience of a village location with the privacy and amenities of a country manor.
You enter The Old Dairy via a lovely secluded courtyard with a boxed bay tree and lavender beds. The house opens onto a vaulted hallway before an ornate front door thought to date back to the 15th century.
The house provides a comfortable sanctuary for a large family or two families with beautiful interiors finished to a very high standard. The attention to detail is apparent throughout the house. Traditional and contemporary influences are thoughtfully blended to provide modern day comforts whilst respecting the historic features.
The large, sociable and fully equipped kitchen caters brilliantly to large groups with two fridges, one freezer, two dishwashers, a SMEG oven, a five gas hob and a range of quality pots and pans. Just off the kitchen is a beautiful recently redecorated dining room, with new lighting and original flag stones, comfortably seating 10.
The upstairs features an impressive Master bedroom with a four poster emperor size bed, an en-suite bathroom with a roll top bathtub and separate walk-in rain shower with heated stone flooring, a dressing room, double sinks and a loo.
Guests will love the second bedroom, which has been equipped with a super-king bed, because of its cathedral ceiling and original beams – the addition of the roll top freestanding bathtub and double sink complete the grandeur of this room. There are two further bedrooms, one twin and one king which have recently been redecorated and include exquisite vintage furniture. Then there is the perfect kids’ room with a single bed and a pull-out trundle underneath, toddler bed*, and a chest of drawers for extra storage. The large family bathroom with a shower, roll top bathtub, loo and separate loo for the guest room has also been retiled and redecorated.
*Guests are free to use the spare travel cot should they be travelling with infants. Please contact the office to confirm.
The large gardens wrap right around the house forming several outdoor ‘rooms’. The garden area to the front has a children’s wooden climbing frame with a den, swing and slide, a spring-free trampoline and lawn area with plenty of space to play. The swimming pool is open from early May to September (weather conditions permitting) and is heated from the first morning of your stay, providing endless fun for all the family. For balmy days, there are reclining sun loungers and deck chairs, alongside outdoor dining with a large sun parasol for up to 10 people. There’s a BBQ and an outdoor pizza oven, conveniently located just outside the kitchen so you can watch the children play safely in the pool.
The Old Dairy does not allow dogs.
The village of Bloxham sits perfectly on the edge of the Cotswolds and is a beautifully rural location when looking to explore the local environment and charming surrounding sites with the family in tow.
