Potentially a lovely cottage but the owner needs to do some repairs and thorough clean throughout the cottage, especially considering the price.

We had a lovely stay at Appletree Cottage. The cottage is tastefully decorated, well equipped and in a fabulous location. We were also treated to a lovely welcome pack on arrival with tasty bread and cakes and other essentials to get us started. Bourton-on-the-Water is the quintessential English village with a shallow river for the children to playRead more in and a wide range of reasonably priced shops and restaurants. We would recommend staying here without hesitation. Hide

Cottage was fantastic, everything you need was there. So close to the High St, but so quiet and peaceful as well. It was only a shame we only booked for one week. Location was excellent, so much to see and do within close proximity of the property. If you didnt want to drive, plenty to do, as well as eat and drink within walking distance.

Lovely cottage in a great location with a homely feel. All the amenities we needed, and we arrived to a welcome of some bread, cakes, etc. It was really handy to be within a short walk of the village but with quick access to countryside walking paths. We would definitely recommend!

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?
