The cottage is small but comfortable, well equipped and very tastefully decorated. The village of Quenington is well placed to visit a range of places in the Cotswolds.

The cottage is very lovely and comfortable, it is in a great location and perfect for going on walks. We stayed in the cottage for the New years and had a great time sitting in front of the fire. This place will always be special to me and my partner as it is the place where he proposed to me.

The location was just right for us with plenty of walks , and lots of tourist attractions within easy reach. We also have family close by so it was lovely to spend time with them. All in all we both enjoyed our stay in the cottage.

A relaxing peaceful cottage in the Coln Valley. A good pub two doors away and central for visiting the tourist hotspots. Unfortunately no garden or bike storage

Reviewed by Andrew 20th July 2018

Cottage has everything you need for a quiet stay in the country. Great location in a peaceful village, not to far from plenty of Cotswold attractions. Note that the mobile signal is very poor in the area. Owner is very helpful and we will return for another stay.

Reviewed by Paul 4th May 2018

Earl Grey Cottage was absolutely beautiful. Very clean and to a high standard, easy to find and great location very close to a welcoming dog friendly pub. The owners who live next door were so welcoming. Ideal location for visiting all of the interesting villages around within an easy 30 minute drive to most but close enough to he next village and Read morethe excellent New Inn another option for food. Highly recommended and would stay here again Hide

This cottage for us , was in the perfect location. A quiet little village in the countryside. And not far away from many of the places you would want to visit. And the cottage itself was decorated well throughout and was warm and cosy in the evening.

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?
