Anthology is a historic country estate in the heart of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds between Chipping Norton, Stow-on-the-Wold and Burford. One of the highlights of a stay here is the stunning estate gardens that beautifully mix formal and informal elements, such as topiary hedges and flower-filled borders.  

The luxury cottages on the estate are housed within buildings, including former stables and a mill, that originally belonged to the manor house at the site. Each cottage is individually designed, and interiors exude country-chic style with a blend of sumptuous soft furnishings, antiques, period furniture and plenty of modern home comforts. 

As a guest of any one of the cottages, you’ll also have access to fantastic shared on-site leisure facilities including an indoor swimming pool, a spa, a gym and children’s playgrounds. Beyond the estate, there are gastro pubs just a short drive away, whilst great days out include Broughton Castle, Chastleton House and Blenheim Palace.
