The delightful village of Hook Norton is situated in the North of Oxfordshire and surrounded by simply stunning countryside. A fairly large village, close to Chipping Norton, it is possibly most well-known for its award-winning brewery. Their beer, which is sold across their 36 pubs, can be sampled on a brewery tour and then purchased in their onsite shop and Malthouse kitchen cafe.
Many of our holiday cottage guests choose the Cotswolds for the many walking routes and fabulous outdoor attractions. One such destination, and local to Hook Norton, is the Rollright Stones – an ancient site made up of three neolithic and bronze age monuments. Great to visit on a daytime walk, the stones are also popular with stargazers as they are a fantastic dark sky destination.
Another popular place to visit, and a little further on the same road as the Rollright stones, is the National Trust property – Chastleton House. This Jacobean mansion is open to visitors and home to some beautiful artwork and stunning interiors. In the warmer months it is also worth a wander around the garden which still largely maintains its original Jacobean layout.
If you’re coming to the Cotswolds with a young family then a stay in a holiday cottage near Hook Norton places you close to the Waterfowl Sanctuary and Childrens farm. Children will enjoy meeting the animals in ‘cuddle corner’ as well as burning off some energy in the large play area.
