Inside, the accommodation has been beautifully updated to include fresh and modern tones and furnishing while retaining plenty of original charm through exposed beams, floorboards and fireplaces. The kitchen diner is spacious and bright with stone flooring, oak worktops and shaker style cabinets. Here you will find an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher, together with a large farmhouse table. A washing machine and tumble dryer can be found in the downstairs WC. The lounge is reminiscent of this property’s past with exposed ceiling beams, wood wall panelling and a large inglenook fireplace. At the end of a long day on foot, relax and unwind on the comfortable sofas while making the most of the TV/DVD available. Upstairs, there is a beautifully presented double bedroom with stone mullion windows, wooden flooring and a feature fireplace, together with a modern en-suite shower room. Next door, the twin bedroom is light and bright with a pretty window seat. There is also a family bathroom with shower over bath.

A superb cottage close to the village centre, with all its amenities, yet quiet and peaceful. Would highly recommend. Many attractions within 45 minutes drive.

Fabulous period cottage. V comfortable. All we needed (cake, milk & ice for GnTs!). Don't take holiday reading as amazing book collection. We took Nespresso machine but thee is a cafetiere. Excellent bakery 100m away. Plenty of good eateries (Indian take away v poor). Places we recommend visiting: Stow (antiques & market town), Avebury (stone circlRead morees), Oxford (museums etc) , Stratford (see an RSC play), Hidcote (gardens), local walks. Fab 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?
