About Old Slaughter House

A charming cottage that’s perfect for a simple country break.

This quaint cottage is full of character, with exposed beams, lots of natural light and countryside-inspired décor. Nearby historical landmarks and places in our care are easily within your reach if you fancy a slice of history on your break.

The Old Slaughter House is nestled right on the Oxfordshire border. Surrounded by nature, like the nearby woodlands and fields, it’s the perfect spot for long walks and time spent away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. There’s a private graveled area at the back with seating, which is the ideal place for a cup of tea and quality time with a loved one. Inside, there’s a free-standing bath in the bathroom for those rainy days when you want to just unwind with a book.

Though compact, it’s a rustic, cosy place to stay, and it’s located on the Buscot and Coleshill estates. It’s also close to historical landmarks like White Horse Hill and Buscot House and Park, which is still cared for by Lord Faringdon.

This cottage is perfect for couples who love the outdoors. It’s located down a quiet lane with the countryside on your doorstep, great for a walk or cycle any time of the year. There’s a local pub and tea room in Coleshill village, a short walk away, so you can unwind with a drink of your choice after a day exploring the Coleshill Estate or a spot of fishing in nearby Buscot. If you fancy a slight change of scenery, why not visit the historic town of Lechlade for a river-based pursuit or the 13th-century Great Coxwell Barn, both a short drive away. Nature and history are on your doorstep if you choose to stay here.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
