About Bog Cottage

In the grounds of Upton House, overlooking the bog garden, this former banqueting house is a stylish retreat.

Bog Cottage is a former 18th-century banqueting house located on the grounds of Upton House and Gardens. The cottage overlooks the bog garden, created in the 1930s, with its lush green plants and stream running through it. The large property has a spacious, open plan feel, with chic interior styling and many original features. .

Discover Upton House, a long low house built of local yellow sandstone before exploring the gardens. As well as a large lawn area with huge cedar trees, and a terraced garden, there is a kitchen garden, a series of herbaceous borders, and large lake with water lilies too. 

Just seven miles away is the interesting market town of Banbury. Explore the historic town centre, with its many shops, restaurants and pubs. Of course, the Cotswolds is well within reach too.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
