Cottage
Oxen Cottage is a ground floor cottage set in picturesque rural setting over looking beautiful Worcestershire countryside. The cottage is cosy and comfortably furnished with the original beams exposed giving a spacious feeling throughout the cottage. There is a garden to the rear with a patio area and a bbq to enjoy those warm summer evenings! There are two bedrooms in each cottage and Oxen sleeps 4 people with plenty of room for a cot. For larger groups to take both cottages works really well and sleeps a total of 7 people. There is always the Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast across the courtyard if you need extra rooms, ideal for weddings and family get - togethers. There is a tennis court for you to enjoy for the more energetic and plenty of lovely walks around Chaddesley Corbett.
