A warm, well furnished property that is comprehensively equipped for a large group of family or friends. Very comfortable beds with quality linen and a copious amount of spare pillows. The kitchen in Orchard Barn has everything you could possible need for any amount of catering.

Eleven of us (16-90) shared Orchard Barn and Thames View. Both were usefully equipped and very comfortable and welcoming. Moving the substantial Thames V. table into Orchard B. was far from easy however, and it wd be cramped for 14 adults dining. We had a wheelchair user in Orchard B. for whom the the step of the front door was awkward - do come, bRead moreut bring a ramp? The caretaker was extremely helpful and went out of her way to ensure our needs were met. Hide

Lovely cottage well situated for most local attractions. Much appreciated ground floor bedroom as just out of hospital and somewhat unable to negotiate the stairs! With two young grandchildren, the lack of a garden was a small negative but the children were happy enough dancing around the patio. Also made good use of the outdoor facilities for a miRead mored-week BBQ. Hide

Brilliant for a family get together, having two fridges in Orchard Barn and being able to have Thames View as well to accommodate a further four people plus there is plenty of parking space.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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?
