SITUATION Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the River Windrush, the hamlet of Widford lies about 1.5 miles east of Burford and 19 miles to the west of Oxford. There is the 13th century St Oswolds Church in the hamlet and neighbouring Swinbrook has a pub, church and cricket club. Everyday amenities are close by at Burford and Witney and more extensive facilities are found in Oxford and Cheltenham. A good choice of local schools include state primary and secondary in Burford, with independent schools including St Hugh's, Cokethorpe and the well regarded schools in Oxford.

ACCOMMODATION Widford Mill Cottage is well-presented throughout with its lovely stone work a particular highlight. Set over three floors, it comprises entrance hall, two ground floor bedrooms and a family shower room, 1st floor open plan kitchen/dining living space with integrated appliances, a feature fire and views out over the River. The second 2nd floor master bedroom suite has a study/dressing area and an en suite bathroom with roll top bath. Probably the properties strongest attribute though is its relationship with the river. Whether it be the lovely communal gardens bordering the Mill Race or the superb views from all of the windows which overlook it, the river is very much part of this home but I should add it has no history of flooding. Externally it boasts two secure off road parking spaces in the private car park over the road and stunning gardens, shared with the other two cottages, which total over 1/2 an acre. Costs for maintaining the gardens and septic tank are split between the three cottages but the 1/3rd share has averaged under £1000 per annum for the last three years.
