Old Rose Cottage is a grade II listed 4 star AA rated brick-and-flint cottage located in the heart of Turville, in a little row of terraced cottages near beautiful St Mary - the church in The Vicar of Dibley.
The cottage dates back to the 16th century and it has been expertly renovated to provide all comforts whilst preserving its character - a unique self-catering retreat for up to 4 guests featuring two bedrooms, a fireplace with log burner, garden, wi-fi and breathtaking countryside location

The space
Old Rose Cottage is arranged over two levels.

Upstairs there are two spacious bedrooms, one with a king size bed and one with twin beds.
The bedrooms and stairway have beautiful original oak beams.
Downstairs there are the kitchen/dining room, a cosy sitting room and the bathroom with bath/shower over.

There is a magnificent inglenook fireplace in the sitting room with a log burning stove for cosy evenings in, as well as a television and a DVD player.
The oak cottage style kitchen has a dining area and is well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, full size electric hob and oven, microwave, kettle, toaster, full size fridge/freezer and everything needed for an enjoyable holiday, including an abundance of pans, cutlery and crockery.

Old Rose Cottage also benefits from a nearby private garden with BBQ, table and chairs - great for relaxing, al fresco eating and children playing.
The garden is a few yards away from the cottage and it is totally private and secluded.

Other facilities include: central heating throughout (there's a radiator in every room), allocated parking space for one car and free wi-fi for our guests.

Towels and bedding are provided at no extra charge, beds will be made for you prior to your arrival, and all linen is changed weekly for bookings spanning over two weeks or longer. Extra services and/or linen changes can be arranged (at extra cost).


Please Note:

Due to the covid-19 outbreak, until 4th July 2020 we are unable to confirm any booking, pending the lifting of UK government restrictions for our sector.
The situation is constantly being reviewed so please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
In order to support social distancing and minimizing the contagion risk, the mid-stay cleaning and servicing is at present suspended until further notice. The cottage will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected at least 48 hrs before each arrival, and will not be serviced again until after check-out, irrespective of duration of stay.
Thank you for understanding!!

Guest access
Guests have exclusive access to the entire property and garden.

Turville is a quiet peaceful village and we like it this way. We welcome families and friends wishing to relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside, however if you are planning parties or late night events, then Old Rose Cottage is not the place for you.
We ask you to show due consideration to our neighbors and ensure any noise is kept to a minimum between the hours of 10 pm and 10 am.

Other things to note
The tiny, peaceful village of Turville is actually one of the most popular film and TV location of the country: beautiful St Mary Church starred in The Vicar of Dibley, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was based at the Cobstone Windmill, which overlooks the village, and the serie Midsomer Murders is a regular visitor here at the village, to name just a few! On a more practical note, mobile reception is very poor in the village - adding to the peace and quiet....! There's wi-fi in the cottage anyway.

Location

Turville, England, United Kingdom

Old Rose Cottage is located in the beautiful Hambleden Valley in the heart of the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire. Designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) the Hambleden Valley has some of the most spectacular and characteristic Chiltern scenery: high ridges, beech woods, sweeping dry chalk valleys, and yet it is only 25 miles from Heathrow - within easy reach of both Oxford and Central London.

This unspoilt, picturesque location offers a wide range of attractions: from some of the finest walks in the Chilterns to boat trips and picnics along the nearby river Thames, visits to grand stately homes and shopping in the pretty market towns of Marlow, Henley-on-Thames, Thame and Wallingford.
The idyllic village of Turville itself will give you the impression of stepping back in time with its tranquility and its delightful cottages, most of which date back to the 16th century.
Central London is only 40 miles away and Oxford is about 20 miles, making Old Rose Cottage the perfect base for day trips to both.
About 7 miles from the cottage, along the most beautiful reaches of the River Thames there are the buzzing night life, cafes, boutiques, restaurants of Marlow and Henley on Thames.
