If you find it impossible to be without WIFI then the super slow broadband will drive you nuts! On the other hand if like us you are looking to relax, unwind, and leave the tech behind, it is a fantastic place to do just that.

Great location with wonderful views. Cottage was full of character and the log burner made it super cosy in the evenings. The wi fi is weak and needs upgrading if possible. The garden was great for our two Cockapoos although we did have to add some more wire netting to the gates to prevent the smaller one escaping. The bed was really comfortable anRead mored we had a good solid sleep each night. Hide

A very warm and comfortable place in the Cotswolds to have a well deserved break and recharge batteries! was really good for our two dogs who enjoyed the garden and nearby walks.

We found the cottage to be 'satisfactory' but were disappointed by the general 'tiredness' of the property. The two very heavy access gates were of particular concern as it was very windy and raining when we arrived and they couldn't be secured open - they require urgent maintenance. Wifi was unreliable and poor, and some of the equipment needs to Read morebe replaced, eg teapot and colander. The views were spectacular and the bed 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?
