Shipton Court is an impressive Jacobean manor house with magnificent reception rooms and lovely gardens in the centre of the village of Shipton under Wychwood.

In addition to the main house there is the option to take a one bedroom cottage in the former stables, ideal for main members of the group and a second two bedroom cottage perfect for staff (available later in August).

Although this is the original manor house and backs up to a later Victorian addition, separately owned, Shipton Court is very much its own; private and with its own gardens ideal for playing croquet and badminton. In the Clock House, part of the original outbuildings, is a separate sitting cum Ping Pong room.

Recent interior photographs have been taken and are available upon request but excluded from this public listing for reasons of privacy.
