Hughes Sealey Estate Agents welcome you to Rose Tree Cottage.

If you are looking for a rural spot with easy access to amenities this could be the one for you.

Langley village was wiped out during the Plague, but the name still exists. The original part of Rose Tree Cottage is believed to be c.300 years old and has since been extended to create a practical home with character. It retains lovely period features including an Inglenook Fireplace, exposed beams and timbers and exposed stonework whilst benefitting from a modern kitchen and bathrooms.

Being a detached property there are views across Cotswold countryside from every aspect. Up until 30 years ago Rose Tree Cottage was in the ownership of The Crown and as such has never been listed. Nearby Swinbrook has a lovely pub on the River Windrush and further pubs, cafes and restaurants are in abundance in nearby Burford. Chipping Norton c.8.5 miles is a charming North Cotswold town situated in West Oxfordshire, c.12 miles South West of Banbury and c.18 miles North West of Oxford.

A wide variety of shopping is on offer including an M&S food hall, large Co-op, Sainsburys and a number of independent traders. Daylesford Organic Farm shop is nearby in Kingham and not forgetting Jeremy Clarkson's Diddley Squat Farm Shop c.3 miles towards Chipping Norton.
