Recently modernised, Fox Tail Cottage is a charming period cottage situated within the popular Cotswold village of Fulbrook. Its position on the edge of the village means it borders the countryside and enjoys lovely views both from inside and out over the adjoining fields to the rear. The property also benefits from planning permission (application no. 13/1674/P/FP) to erect a two storey extension at the rear of the house taking advantage of the outlook, to provide a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with a master bedroom above. Full plans available.

Fox Tail Cottage is currently let as a successful holiday rental. Please enquire for further details of the returns.

The cottage has much charm and character and provides accommodation arranged over two floors. The ground floor has underfloor heating throughout and boasts three reception rooms two of which enjoy the lovely rural views. Off the entrance hall to the left is a snug room with an open fireplace and a study corner with a larger sitting room beyond. To the right of the hallway is a cloakroom and the dining room, which continues through to the kitchen with fitted wall and base cupboards with wooden surfaces and an integrated oven, hob and dishwasher. From the kitchen, a back door gives access to the garden and the stone shed where there is space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer. From the hallway the staircase, which splits to the left and right leads to the first floor and the two double bedrooms, both with en-suites. One being a wet room with a rain shower and the other a bathroom.

At the back of Foxtail Cottage the terraced garden enjoys the views over the paddocks and country-side beyond. There are three levels; one of which is laid to lawn and the other is decked ideal for alfresco dining and relaxing. At the bottom of the terrace there is a little stream running through the garden. To the side of the house a driveway provides parking.

SITUATION Fulbrook is located just across the River Windrush from the historic Cotswold town of Burford, it is raised above the river valley and has a parish church and a 17th century Cotswold stone pub. Burford has a large number of pubs, restaurants and hotels catering for all tastes, the shops provide a good selection of produce and clothing, although High Street chains have yet to make a significant impression on the town. State and private schooling in the area is outstanding, with schools in Burford, Bourton on the Water, Kingham and Cokethorpe. Good communications with the A40 to the south linking Cheltenham, Oxford and London, a fast and frequent service to London Paddington from Charlbury Station, the M5 motorway at Cheltenham and the M40 at Oxford.

DIRECTIONS From Burford High Street proceed down the hill and continue over the river bridge, then turn right into Fulbrook Hill. Proceed through the village, after the left hand bend and just before the turning into Upper End, Fox Tail Cottage will be found on the left.
