Best Inglenook open fire I have ever used. Unlimited fire logs. Cosy and comfortable lounge. Deep bath with a shower (Not used by us). Very friendly owner (Nigel) who lives 50 yards away. Double bedroom is also very cosy and welcoming after a lazy day doing nothing.

We really enjoyed our short stay at Meadow Cottage. The cottage was just the right size for 2 adults and 2 small children and although I was worried it would be cold in early January, it turned out to be very warm and cosy. The location is was perfect for us but be advised you will probably need to drive to the nearest shop or pub.

Lovely stay, thank you!

Reviewed by Bob 8th September 2019

The cottage is advertised as Lechlade, but is half way between Lechlade & Burford and means driving for everything. It wasnt a particular problem to us - but it meant you cant stroll out on an evening to eat. And that would have been pleasant.

Pros: Fantastic place for a family holiday, especially if you or your kids like horses. Great location, peaceful and a close drive to most Cotswold must sees. Lovely Welcoming hosts. Cons: Be mindful if youre over 6ft as the cottage ground floor is a bit low as its a traditional old cottage. Shower is hand held

Reviewed by Chitranga 1st August 2019

It's a nice cottage located in a very rural area. There are lots of walking paths to explore. Also the beautiful towns of Burton on the Water and Burford are few minutes drive away.

Wonderful cottage. easy reach into Cotswold. My 3 year old specially liked the horses on site.

Reviewed by Ruth 21st June 2019

The cottage has character but needs a good spruce up. Stairs are steep. The owners were away and phone contact with them didn't feel welcoming. Oh, and enjoy the nightly flyover of many planes from Brize Norton - exciting.

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?
