A most attractive detached property with paddock and delightful views towards Shotover Park


Forest Hill is a popular village situated to the east of Oxford and benefits from various amenities, including The White Horse public house, the 12th century Church of St Nicholas and a village hall. The nearby village of Stanton St John also has an award winning shop. The area offers a wide variety of well regarded state and private schools.

Forest Hill has an active village community that ensures that there are numerous clubs and societies including a baby and toddler group, sports club, gardening club and amateur dramatic society.

For commuters, Chiltern Railways operates a regular service from the new Oxford Parkway station to London Marylebone, with journey times from 56 minutes. The M40 is approximately 6 miles away providing excellent access to London Heathrow, Birmingham airport and the national motorway network.


Church Cottage is a handsome detached property with flexible well proportioned accommodation over two floors. Set in substantial gardens with an adjoining paddock the property combines the appeal of a country setting with excellent transport links and is just 2 miles from the city of Oxford.

On the ground floor is a comfortable sitting room with open fireplace and bay window, which has views over the paddock to Shotover Park beyond. Leading from the sitting room is a kitchen/breakfast room with fitted units, AGA and wooden flooring. At the south-eastern end of the property is a study, which looks out onto the garden, a laundry room and utility room. This end of the house is served by a separate entrance and a back staircase, making it ideally suited to the creation of a self-contained unit within the main house.

On the first floor there are five bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom and a further shower room.

Church Cottage is set back from Church Hill and approached via a gravel drive with ample parking for several vehicles. The property is set in mature gardens, which are predominantly laid to lawn with established borders and trees such as walnut, oak and lime. The garden is also interspersed with various specimen shrubs and fruit trees, including a strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo), apple, cherry, pear and plum. Sheltered by the property is a delightful walled courtyard garden with a pergola, and external wine store, ideally suited to entertaining in the summer months. To the south-west of the property is a paddock. Adjacent to the paddock is a productive kitchen garden planted with vegetables and fruit bushes. There is also a separate wooden studio to the south-east of Church Cottage, which provides a secluded vantage point from which to enjoy views of the garden.
