Rufus Cottage

Burrowed within the quintessential village of Sibford Ferris you will find Rufus Cottage on Main Street two doors from the village shop/post office. Rufus Cottage is a Grade II Listed traditional stone cottage built around 1691 and contains many original features such as an inglenook fireplace and winding corkscrew staircases. A traditional cottage beautifully decorated with stylish country furnishings, this attractive abode makes a fabulous retreat to the English countryside for families or groups of four travelling with their canine companions. Climb the original stone steps up to the front door and step into the bright and airy sitting room to discover a spacious red sofa, where you can kick back and unwind as you stay warm from the heat of the woodburning stove, flicking on the TV to find a captivating movie to keep you entertained. Wander into the well-appointed kitchen complete with stylish sage green cabinets and traditional oak worktops, where you can cook up a storm with the help of the contemporary electric appliances such as the flashy built-in oven and keep on top of the dishes with the convenient dishwasher. Indulge in this magnificent feast at the dining table as you crack open a bottle of fizz and toast to the good times, before discussing the finer details of the action-packed days that lie ahead. Continue the evening in the sunroom as you enjoy a long overdue catch up with friends and watch as the sun sets on another fabulous day. Ascend up the steep and winding staircase to the first floor, home to a chic bathroom boasting an impressive roll top bath and eye-catching blue panelled walls, as well as an attractive king-size bedroom boasting a striking feature fireplace and rustic wood furnishings. Carry on up the staircase to the second floor where you will be greeted by a peaceful twin bedroom, finished with cream walls and bright blue and yellow bedding, providing a relaxing room for guests to retreat to at the end of another exciting day. Make the most of the spacious back garden as you bask in the sunshine on a warm summer's day, whilst the chef of the group takes to the barbecue and cooks up a delicious dinner to be dined alfresco at the outdoor seating area. When ready to tear yourself away from this fantastic dwelling, start with a tour of the grand Broughton Castle or visit the magnificent Tysoe Windmill on a scenic walk through the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Beauty. Soak up the local history at the local heritage museum of Minster Lovell Hall and Dovecote. Spend the day with the kids at the All Things Wild Zoo, meeting charming lemurs and friendly camels, or enjoy a theatre visit at Stratford on Avon, Oxford or Leamington Spa, before grabbing a bite to eat in the nearby towns of Banbury and Chipping Norton. Rufus Cottage makes a wonderful setting for your next family holiday to the Cotswolds.
