the old dairyThe Cotswolds
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, 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 12.
The upstairs features an impressive master bedroom with a super king bed, an en-suite bathroom with a roll top bath 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 recently been equipped with a brand new super king bed, because of its cathedral ceiling and original beams – the addition of the roll top freestanding bath and double sink complete the grandeur of this room. There are two further bedrooms, one twin and one king size which have recently been redecorated and include all new storage furniture. Then there is the perfect kids’ room with a bunk bed with a pull-out trundle underneath, cot*, and a chest of drawers for extra storage. The large family bathroom with a shower, roll top bath, loo and separate loo for the guest room has also been retiled and redecorated.
*After the summer the cot will be replaced with a toddler bed, but guests are welcome to bring a travel cot should they be travelling with infants.
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 May to September and is heated from the first morning of your stay, providing endless fun for all the family. Two sunbeds, brand new garden furniture for dining al fresco, and a BBQ, are also conveniently located just outside the kitchen so you can watch the children play safely in the pool.
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.
