Property code: CC064

The accommodation is a rural Cotswold cottage with out-of-this-world views for miles around and a comfy, homely feel, making this the perfect base for a relaxing holiday.

This property lies in the pretty village of Firfield, which is lined with chocolate-box cottages and a 13th century church, with an early English chancel still present. There is a lovely gastro pub  a little further down the road in Nether Westcote. The neighbouring village of Idbury, high up on a ridge looks out over the Evenlode Valley, just five miles from Burford and Stow-on-the-Wold. This ancient town of Burford, known as the gateway to the Cotswolds, offers an excellent selection of shops, pubs and restaurants to choose from and the fascinating history around the town is well worth exploring. This is a fantastic central location right in the heart of Shakespeare’s Country.

 

Arriving at the welcoming entrance hall with stable door, you come to a bright and sunny lounge/diner, where you can snuggle up on the cosy window seat with a good book from the fully stocked bookcase or perhaps play one of the many games available and share a glass of wine or two. There is a TV, DVD and CD player in here. If you decide to stay in for the evening, there is a lovely country kitchen, well-equipped with pretty crockery and a solid wooden table and chairs for four in the dining room. All the mod cons are available for convenience, including electric oven with hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, coffee maker and a dishwasher so you don’t even need to make the coffee or do the dishes at the end of the evening. Off the hallway, you will find a shower room, with shower, wash basin and WC. Heading up the staircase to the first floor, you come to a small landing leading to a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, both with stunning views from the window.

 

Outside, you will find a beautiful walled country garden with furniture for basking in the sunshine while enjoying your tranquil rural surroundings. This truly is a peaceful  paradise.

We had the impression that the owners were not very welcoming, not interested. Not much privacy, we could hear the owners talk, heard their radio in our cottage. The owners walked around the cottage past the windows. We could walk with our dog in the big, beautiful garden, but no long walks from the cottage, the footpath was overgrown with long graRead moress and weeds.

My only comment is that the cottage has it own entry however the cottage is joined to the owners home and only an internal door separates the homes- The owners are considerate of this but we were surprised of the close proximity. Fabulous cottage though and this did not impact too much on our holiday

The cottage was well appointed and equipped but the description given on the website is a bit ambiguous,it does not explain the there is only a normal internal door separating the properties.

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?
