A thatched cottage which is one Oxfordshire's oldest homes is on the market. 

Grade II-listed Little Manor in the conservation village of Wroxton in north Oxfordshire dates back to 1450.

The village, which is mentioned in the Domesday book, is made up of predominantly ironstone cottages and farmhouses and is the home of Wroxton Abbey with amenities in the village including the Wroxton House hotel, a well regarded Church of England primary school, sports club, and village hall.

More extensive facilities can be found in Banbury and Chipping Norton.

The house, which is tucked away in a secluded position, has a thatched roof, stone mullion windows, flag stone floors, and exposed beams.

Owner Jonathan Reuvid and his wife Anne said: "Little Manor was one of the first homes to be built during the period of All Saints Church rebuild.

"It was originally a single-storey hall house, with the upper floor added in the late 16th or early 17th century.

"Its rich history is evident both inside and out, and we have thoroughly enjoyed our time as its custodians over the last 25 years."

The hall with tiled floor leads to the cloakroom and utility/boot room with a door out to the herb garden.

The kitchen/breakfast room is the hub of the house with stone mullion windows and window seat, with plenty of space for a family dining table.

This leads through into the spacious dining room with exposed stone walls, parquet flooring and wood burning stove. Glazed doors lead out onto the pretty garden.

The large sitting room has flagstone floors and fireplace with access to the original front door via a separate passageway. The cellar is accessed via stone steps.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms including the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom, three further bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Outside the gardens consist of the orchard with mature fruit trees, the sunken garden with pond, the herb garden and vegetable working garden.

The vegetable garden has a greenhouse with electric points, and also provides some flat lawn for children to play on.

There is a separate stone thatched barn providing storage space for garden machinery and larger items, which could be converted into a studio/annex subject to planning consent.

Sophie Gannon, of Savills Banbury, said: "Little Manor is a rare gem, enjoying a great central location for making the most of village life on foot, while being tucked away within an incredibly private and tranquil plot.

"Jonathan and Anne have looked after the home very well over the years, ensuring its Grade II- listed heritage is beautifully preserved.

"Its sale now is an exciting opportunity for a new family to enjoy the home, which also has further potential in its separate threshing barn and stable block."
