Property code: 52674

Nestled within the peaceful backwaters of Longborough, with an unusual style that’s further complimented by the owners stylish interior and furnishings, just perfect for a weekend away in the Cotswolds.

This quintessential Cotswold dormer cottage nestles into a hillside and enjoys panoramic views across the sweeping hills and valleys of the North Cotswolds. The renowned Longborough Festival Opera is situated virtually underneath the stepped terrace of the bottom of the garden. Just a stones' throw away are Moreton-in-Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold, with Lower Slaughter, Broadway, Chipping Campden, Bourton-on-the-Water and Burford all close by. Further afield are the historic towns of Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare’s birth place, and Cheltenham, home to the literature and food festival and Horse racing. More local attractions include Chastleton House and Gardens, Hidcote Manor, Daylesford Organic farm shop and Batsford Arboretum.

Take in the charm of this traditional Cotswold stone cottage, renovated with a contemporary twist on the traditional. The entrance being the perfect place to leave your walking boots behind you as you step into the cosy lounge where the warming wood burner will entice you to sit back and relax amongst the tasteful soft furnishings that blend simply with the rustic charm. A particularly seductive feature is that the ground floor is split-level, with a stunning sight-line created via steps leading up from the lounge to the dining room which is just perfect for a supper for two if you choose to stay in,(also located in this room is a fridge, freezer and washing machine). The small kitchen is bespoke in style and equipped with electric oven and hob, fridge and microwave. And when the day is done climb the stairs to the double bedroom fit for a king – the vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and exposed filament Edison style lights are the perfect back drop for a super relaxed nights sleep. The luxurious bathroom with rainfall shower over bath is located off the bedroom.

Head into the enclosed garden from pretty sleeper steps up from the lounge -the natural garden has a wild bohemian feel to it and is a perfect sun trap to while away the afternoon with a good book, or perhaps light the barbecue and cook for friends. And on summer evenings sit back and listen to wafts of the Longborough Festival Opera that is just across the way. Follow the winding pathway with wonderful views that leads down to a gate within a high wall and the village beyond. This takes you down to the village shop, the archetypal Cotswold village green with its pub and church. There is also off road parking for two cars.

The cottage was beautiful and cosy. We were welcomed with a chocolate cake and bottle of fizz. We booked this cottage as a relaxing hideaway for our honeymoon and found it to be perfect. The open fire is definitely the highlight of this beautifully cosy cottage.

Had a great time at this quaint cottage. Loved the nooks and crannies, and the great use of the space. Very cosy and excellent fireplace. Loved the little touches of Prosecco and chocolate cake. Longborough village was lovely; very friendly at the village shop and The Coach and Horses pub. Did a nice, muddy walk to Moreton on Marsh to visit the ChrRead moreistmas markets. Also drove to Broadway Tower and walked down the hill to Broadway. Beautiful countryside getaway. Highly recommended! Hide

Extremely cosy and comfortable, especially with the log fire burning. This was our second visit to the cottage within a year, and we will almost certainly be back a third time.

We loved the quirky cottage layout and open fire made it very cosy. The location was super (and idilic) with plenty of walks from the doorstep along with a great local pub (they served the best steaks!) and a local shop for essentials. We had a super time and look forward to coming back very soon!

This was a great and homely cottage in a perfect location, particularly if you want to explore the Cotswolds on foot. The accommodation was great although a few things could be refreshed to make it a 5* cottage (e.g cheese grater and cafetire to be provided) which wouldnt be a problem if you were only staying 1 night, & a refresh of the bathroom ThRead moree bread & milk on arrival was very much appreciated but we were disappointed that there was no Prosecco which other reciewers have received.

lovely decorated house in a small quiet village. lot of great walks in the neighbourhood. nice (bit touristic) villages in the area. great antique / vintage shopping.

Reviewed by Judy 20th July 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Longborough, which is a super little village with a good pub and shop. We also enjoyed the cottage, but feel it did not deserve its 5 star status. With a bit more care and attention to detail it would do.

The Cotswolds is home to some of the most unspoilt, historic and famous villages in England. Its honey-coloured stone buildings provide a quintessential English charm found no-where else in the world and offer a plethora of welcoming pubs, tiny tearooms and quaint streets to explore.

Once described by William Morris as ‘the most beautiful village in England’, the chocolate box village of Bibury is one of England’s most iconic hamlets, home to the peaceful River Coln and some of the most photographed houses in the country. The famous Arlington Row is a sight to behold - this row of 14th century weaver’s cottages have been the foundation of Bibury for hundreds of years and is instantly recognisable as a symbol of the Cotswold District.

If you’re seeking a relaxing day of sightseeing, shopping and traditional tearooms, head to the charming town of Cirencester, once the second largest town in Roman Britain. Proclaiming the title "The Capital of the Cotswolds", its market square is dominated by the cathedral-like Parish Church of St. John Baptist (one of the largest in England) and can be easily reached from our self-catering accommodation in Bibury, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold.

The rolling Cotswolds countryside is never too far away from your cosy holiday cottage, so you can enjoy a variety of outdoor leisure pursuits including those at The Cotswold Waterpark. This popular tourist destination in Gloucestershire is home to 150 glorious lakes where angling, archery, wakeboarding, windsurfing, birdwatching and even rally driving can be experienced. On a balmy summers day, the Cotswold Country Park and Beach is the place to go, boasting the largest inland beach in the UK.

When it comes to attractions in the Cotswolds, visitors will be spoilt for choice. Grab a stylish bargain at Bicester shopping village, talk a walk on the wild side at Longleat Safari Park, experience a day at the races in Cheltenham, admire colourful blooms at Westonbirt Arboretum, keep the kids entertained at the Cotswolds Farm Park, take a tour around Gloucester Cathedral, and enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea at Blenheim Palace. That’s just for starters, there’s plenty more things to see and do in the Cotswolds and you will love them all! Our holiday homes in the Cotswolds are the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploration, why not have a browse?
