Cosy cottage in idyllic position.

A beautiful property, well equipped, very clean and well cared for. The setting is superb in a real picture postcard village. Lots of lovely walks right on your doorstep.

Lovely homely cottage. Very clean and well equipped with all we could need. The enclosed rear area was ideal for our dog to be safe outside.

We wanted a quiet location away from the hotspots of the tourist trail, but still within close travelling distance...and this cottage was just perfect. In a lovely rural location, the accommodation was spotlessly clean and had everything we could ask for - including free range eggs!

Beautiful cottage in a perfect location for dog walking. The place was very clean and the fire was lovely

Reviewed by Geoffrey 26th October 2018

The cottage is in a very remote area. There is a pub about 10 minutes walk down the road which allows dogs in but it is not safe to walk there at night as it is extremely dark. Have to use the car to get anywhere as there are no footpaths and the road can be quite busy. It is a pleasant cottage but the wi-fi is very hit and miss. The cottage is heaRead moreted using storage heaters and they were on during the night which was not very comfortable. Hide

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?
