Lock-Keepers Cottage Banbury
Tarvers Lock Cottage is a Grade II listed property, constructed in the late 18th century and set on the Oxford canal in the Cherwell Valley west of Adderbury. The property comprises of a cottage and an unconverted barn / workshop.

The cottage has a delightful symmetrical facade overlooking the canal and has been cleverly extended with the addition of the drawing room to create a four bedroom, two reception room house with character.

On the opposite side of the canal is a large red brick barn which has been used as a party room over the years. Adjacent to this is a large workshop. These buildings have potential for conversion (sstp).

To the rear of the cottage is an attractive, enclosed garden with views over the surrounding farmland and beyond to Kings Sutton with its magnificent parish church. Adjacent to the barn is a further parcel of land with lawns with fruit trees, which is leased by the current owners from Canal and River Trust. There is also a mooring associated with this leased land. The rent is of a peppercorn nature.

The property enjoys a peaceful setting surrounded by open countryside and is accessed via a one mile long farm track which passes over the M40 motorway. Banbury is just three miles to the north and has mainline train services to London (Marylebone from 54 minutes) and access to the M40 via Junction 11.
