The cottage was snug and the bed and sofa were very comfortable. It was well equipped, clean and the wifi worked well. It was nice to have the wood burner as the nights started to get cooler. The views from the property were beautiful and changed with the days. Overall, a really nice cottage that I would recommend to others.

We enjoyed our stay in this cute cottage. We used the cottage as a base to explore the surrounding areas and it was lovely to return on an evening to sit in the peaceful garden or on the cosy sofa indoors. The cottage had all the things that we needed and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Lovely cottage, full of character, comfortable, clean as a whistle. Really helpful owners. The location is perfect for walkers (especially with dogs), with miles of footpaths right on the doorstep. Thoroughly recommend the circular walk at Old Sodbury, though don't be fooled by the "easy" tag - some sections are steep. Also the circular walk at WotRead moreton under Edge, though there's a high stile my dog couldn't cope with. Wonderful location for visiting pretty Cotswold towns, too. Great holiday. 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?
