Rolling Cotswolds countryside, the luxury of a boutique hotel and rustic charm for romance aplenty... When it comes to exquisite hideaways, Stable Cottage has it all.

Stable Cottage is a recently renovated, exceptionally finished bolthole for two on the edge of a working farm in Salford - a charming Cotswolds village in beautiful Oxfordshire. Offering the very best of the British countryside, fabulous interiors and luxurious touches at every turn, there's no better place for a romantic rural retreat to leave you and your loved one feeling utterly spoiled.

This stunning, self-contained cottage blends traditional charm with modern comforts, sure to leave you both with that warm, fuzzy feeling inside. And although Stable Cottage shares its grounds with the main house next door, you'll find the owners will never disturb you, allowing you peace and privacy throughout your stay.

You'll enter through a gorgeous stable door, straight into the wonderfully spacious, yet beautifully cosy, living room. High ceilings with exposed timber beams generate height and space, while whitewashed walls create a light and airy feel that flows throughout the cottage. And everywhere you look is yet another charming feature to give this unique home its warm and welcoming character.

One of the first things you'll notice is the magnificent light fitting above - a large reclaimed street lamp providing ambience into the evening. As the woodburner crackles away, cuddle on the plush purple sofa to watch your favourite DVD. While away rainy days with a board game, or dip into a good read from the bookshelves. Or unfold the OS map and plan an adventure - from exploring the local walking routes to locating the perfect picnic spot!

Whip up romantic breakfasts, lazy lunches and sumptuous suppers in the beautiful kitchen, where subway tiles and stylish cabinets create a sense of simple elegance. With a Bosch induction hob and oven, a large fridge-freezer, a Nespresso coffee machine (with milk frother!), microwave, kettle and toaster, as well as a dishwasher and a washer-dryer, no detail has been forgotten. You'll even find a hamper of delicious local delights waiting for you on the table for two, while fresh eggs from the farm are available throughout your stay.

An opulent bedroom is found at the other end of Stable Cottage, featuring a king size bed, topped with Hungarian goose down bedding and Egyptian cotton linen. The cast iron column radiator keeps you toasty on chillier nights, while finishing touches of industrial bedside lamps, floating oak shelves and pretty ornaments add rustic charm and modern style. Next door, you'll find the luxurious en-suite bathroom, complete with a heavenly rainfall shower and indulgent Bamford bath products for total relaxation.

A set of large double doors leads from the bedroom to Stable Cottage's private patio - a pretty suntrap where you can enjoy alfresco dining in finer weather. A gas BBQ is available on request, while a wood-burning fire pit will keep you warm after sunset. And as Stable Cottage also welcomes one well-behaved dog, the patio is a perfect place for your four-legged friend to let off some steam or bask in the sunshine!

Beyond Stable Cottage, there are local ales and hearty meals to enjoy in The Salford Inn, while nearby Kingham offers a range of excellent cafes, pubs and restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Wild Rabbit. Save some room for a trip to the Cotswold Fudge Co., and absolve any guilt with long country walks past dazzling rape fields, blackberry-laden hedgerows, and lush green pastures.

From curling up together in front of a roaring fire to exploring breath-taking countryside hand in hand, all the ingredients for your perfect romantic retreat are waiting for you at Stable Cottage - your idyllic hideaway in the heart of the Cotswolds.
