The Chestnuts main lounge

Combining luxury living with a design edge


Eco Chic Cottages comprises of two luxury self-catering holiday cottages, located in the Cotswolds - The Chestnuts in Oxfordshire and Culls Cottage in Gloucestershire.

Each historic cottage has been lovingly restored to retain traditional touches and brought bang up to date with contemporary luxuries. 

The stone floors, oak beams and inglenook fireplaces of each cottage exude old world charm, while stylish furnishings, original artworks and modern conveniences such as underfloor heating make them glorious places to be. 

Women and Home Magazine said “Culls Cottage is a stylish old charmer, with its roots in the 16th century. In beautiful Southrop village. Stand by for a ‘group gasp’, as you walk into the low-beamed, stone-floored living room. Bathed in bright light till evening it’s the perfect place to catch up over a glass of something sparkly”. 

You will want for nothing in our kitchens, which are equipped for the keenest chef; Global knives, a range of cookery books and even lemon zesters. We not only have Champagne glasses and essential ice bucket, but red and white wine glasses and tumblers for Gin and Tonic too. For coffee lovers, we have espresso machines, grinders and plungers. If you like, you can cook up a storm with local produce purchased from one of the nearby markets or farm shops such as Daylesford. 

Our lounges comfortably seat six and The Chestnuts benefits from a second lounge, also with television and DVD player, so you can enjoy peace in one, whilst your children watch movies in the other. Enjoy the iPod dock, digital radio or brag to friends and family on Facebook with the free WiFi. 

Culls Cottage has three double bedrooms and The Chestnuts has four doubles. One of Culls’ bedrooms is downstairs with a nearby bathroom. For little ones, we can supply (free of charge) cots, highchairs and stair gates and we have a tiny tots box of toys. 

The bathrooms are places to linger and luxuriate, with drenching showers, double ended baths and indulgent toiletries for a spa-like feel. 

The Cotswolds are superb whatever the season and our luxury holiday cottages are equipped for all weathers; the roaring fires, woollen throws and goose down duvets will keep you toasty in winter and our stunning gardens each with numerous places to sit and relax, are a haven in summer. Both gardens are loved by our gardener and are special places to enjoy. 

Contemplate the view towards Shilton ford from The Chestnuts or the revel in the majesty of Red Kites soaring overhead at Culls Cottage. If you do decide to venture out of our cottages you could take a walk over the fields, enjoying the wildlife, ancient churches and have a refreshment break at picturesque Eastleach or Burford. Try cycling our lush lanes; you can hire cycles nearby and the peddling is easy over the gently rolling countryside that surrounds us. 

Go further afield and there is more fun for all. Families love The Cotswold Wildlife Park and Adam Henson’s Farm. Go punting in Oxford, take in the Shakespearean theatre at Stratford, or rampage on the ramparts of Warwick Castle. Walk with the Romans along nearby Akerman Street, visit Chedworth Roman Villa, or Cirencester’s Corinium Museum. Visit the standing stones of Avebury, the Rollrights or Stonehenge. Snap up a designer outfit at a bargain price at Bicester’s Chic Outlet Village. If literature moves you visit, Jane Austen’s Bath, The Roald Dahl Museum or Laurie Lees countryside inspiration for ‘Cider with Rosie’. 

Once back at the cottages use our off-street parking and walk to The Rose and Crown Pub at Shilton or The Swan at Southrop, each of which serves great food for lunch or supper.

With our master cancel policy, you can cancel for any reason any time from 60 days up to 2 days before the start of your holiday, so you can book with confidence. This doesn't cover you for the last two days before arrival, so we would still recommend that you get UK travel insurance ( just in case you were unable to travel at the last minute, due to health reasons for example), but at least it does give you peace of mind and you can book in confidence. 

Meet the owner

Christine Burton

We purchased The Chestnuts in 1998 and lived there until 2005. Today we live a life split between The Cotswolds, Australia and other wine producing regions of the world. Phil is a wine consultant and Chris looks after the holiday properties. We love travel, books, architecture, cooking and naturally wine. You will find elements of these things in both of our cottages. Our houses are peaceful places - full of light, white and neutrals with gardens to enjoy a read and a glass of bubbles.
