This beautiful renovated vintage former railway carriage boasts tons of character. It has been sympathetically restored to offer you a wonderfully unique stay, set in a private area all to yourselves and has bundles of charm.

The comfortable carriage sleeps 4 adults with a double sized bed and a double sofa bed, a cute kitchen and a perfectly formed bathroom. Everything you need for a relaxing break will be supplied, including kitchen basics, bed linen and towels. The adorable bathroom cabin will provide you with a hot shower after a glorious day's sightseeing. If there are more than four of you, one tent is permitted to be pitched. If you would like to pitch more let us know and we can let you know the additional cost. Please bear in mind there is no electricity (or WiFi) at this site, but there is lighting via a 12 volt battery system.

The eco wood-fired hot tub (available at extra cost, please enquire) will keep you relaxed as your supper is sizzling away on the BBQ. Treat yourself to a glass of bubbly, gaze at the stars and let the beautiful surroundings wash away your stress.

This is an idyllic place to unwind and leave your hectic life behind. There is no power or wi-fi to distract you, so you can truly switch off.

You are close to the beautiful cities of Oxford and Cheltenham and the gorgeous towns and villages of the Cotswolds. Shop till you drop in the many boutiques and antique shops that the surrounding towns have to offer. Or lose yourself in the wonderful stately homes and gardens nearby. To name a few; Blenheim Palace, Buscot Park, Friar’s Court, Kelmscott Manor. Or visit one of our local villages, Bampton, where many scenes of Downton Abbey were filmed.

The Cotswolds is dripping in history, from ancient churches and barns, to Roman ruins and gothic monasteries, there is a wealth of activity on your doorstep.

If the great outdoors is your thing, you are spoilt for choice with wonderful walking and cycling opportunities. The Cotswold's Way is close by and boasts over 100 miles of trails through picturesque villages and ancient woodland. You also have the river Thames just a couple of miles away.

If all that activity sounds like hard work, just kick off your shoes and spend the day lounging by the fire pit toasting marshmallows enjoying the beautiful countryside, wander down to the local pub or cozy up next to the log burner.

The Cotswolds is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and you will be staying in the heart of this wonderful area.

If the Retreat is booked for the dates you are looking for, please look at our other cabins - 'Rectory Farm Camp' and 'Rectory Farm Hideaway'. All set in a similar setting as the Retreat! The Hideaway has the addition of limited solar power.
