  • Peaceful farm cottage in a pretty riverside hamlet of thatched cottages
  • Idyllic location by the River Avon with private fishing rights and a nearly golfing range at Welford Golf Club.
  • Great rural location for keen walkers and cyclists in the heart of Shakespeare’s country
Property code: CC081

The property lies on working farmland complete with farm shop selling fresh produce. Just half a mile away you will find good local shops and pubs in Welford-on-Avon. With the River Avon boarding the farmland, guests can benefit from private fishing rights or perhaps head to the nearby golfing range at Welford. For a relaxing day in the Cotswolds, the nearby beautiful Cotswold villages sit waiting to be discovered. Maybe enjoy a leisurely walk or hop on a bicycle to Shakespeare’s riverside town of Stratford-upon-Avon and ride along the towpath, stopping off for a bite to eat or a refreshing drink in one the many riverside pubs or cafes along the way. Whatever your interest, this is a superb location.

 

Arriving at the lovely farmhouse entrance door, you are invited into the hallway with downstairs WC, where you can conveniently store wet or muddy coats and wellies. Leading through to a beautiful spacious lounge/diner with beautiful high pitched ceilings, original oak beams and a prominent fireplace with gas-fired burner, inviting you to snuggle on the sofa by the fire with a captivating book or perhaps spoil yourself with a glass of wine or two. If you stay in for a meal, there is a fabulous fitted country kitchen with views out to the garden and bespoke oak cabinets that sit well with the oak dining table and chairs for two. Well-equipped including an electric oven with hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer and dishwasher to save washing the dishes. On the same floor, you will find a double bedroom with TV and ensuite bathroom with bath, shower cubicle, wash basin and WC.

 

Heading outside, you will find a lovely courtyard garden with a BBQ and furniture to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed while you dine out enjoying the peaceful farmland surroundings. A great deal of attention has gone into the privacy and comfort of this property.

This cottage is awesome. Beautifully presented with absolutely everything you need. As it was January when we stayed it was cold outside but the cottage was warm and cosy. I injured myself during our holiday and was so happy that I had such a lovely place to cuddle up and read for a couple of days until I was able to walk again.
