Tadmarton is a rural village with an active community. There is a historic Church, village hall and well-regarded village pub, the Lampet Arms with B&B accommodation.

Banbury and Oxford provide a wide variety of shopping and leisure facilities. Soho Farmhouse at Great Tew is located about 9 miles to the south. The M40 motorway can be accessed at junction 11 Banbury. There are mainline train services from Banbury to London Marylebone (from 52 minutes).
This super cottage has plenty of character and is set back from the road in an elevated position making the most of the fabulous views over some of the most attractive countryside in the area. There is off-road parking and good external storage. Now in need of some modernisation the property offers a fabulous opportunity for the buyer to stamp their own mark on their property.
A covered entrance porch leads you through the front door to the hall. The adjacent sitting room has an inglenook fireplace with log-burner and is situated to the rear of the property with triple aspect windows, including large sliding doors to the garden room with picture windows overlooking the superb views down to the valley and beyond. The kitchen is situated to the side of the cottage with an external door to the side and rear garden. A utility room and cloakroom complete the downstairs accommodation. Stairs from the hall lead to the first floor with two double bedrooms both with dual aspect windows and window seats, again looking over the attractive countryside to the rear. There is a good size cloakroom and a separate shower room on the first floor.
Grounds and gardens
There is off-road parking to the front of the cottage and a storage area housing the oil tank. Beyond this is a log store. Several steps take you down to the entrance porch and an adjacent bridleway continues along the side of the cottage and across the fields beyond. On the opposite side of the bridleway there is a useful additional lawned garden area belonging to Malcolm’s Cottage. The views from the rear garden are the star of the show. Privately situated, and mainly laid to gravel with plant and shrub borders, the vista from this elevated position is stunning. There are several seating areas, including a covered decked area to the side of the garden room. A garden office, workshop and several garden stores surround the garden.
