Property code: 56829

Enjoying the best of both worlds, this cottage is peacefully tucked away within the backwaters of a vibrant Cotswold market town, and is a perfect hideaway for couples whatever the time of year.

The vibrant market town of Moreton-in-the-Marsh, situated on the Fosse Way and now served by the main line railway from London Paddington is the location of this lovely cottage. Why not explore the high street on foot and discover honey coloured stone shop fronts with tea shops, antiques, art galleries and eateries for a lazy lunch. For walkers, a wealth of waymarked paths will take you deeper into the breathtaking countryside. Or you could discover the neighbouring towns and villages Stow-on-the-Wold, Lower Slaughter, Broadway, and Burford all close by. Further afield are the historic towns of Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare’s birth place, and Cheltenham, home to the literature and food festival. More local attractions include Chastleton House and Gardens, Hidcote Manor, Daylesford Organic farm shop and Batsford Arboretum - all excellent days out.

Take in the beauty of this terrace of cottages before stepping into the porch where you can leave your walking boots behind. The lounge is lovingly decorated with a great mix of both old and new with exposed beams and a stone fire place enhanced by rich soft furnishings and window shutters. After a full day of adventures, why not light the wood burner and sink into the sofa, there is a TV just perfect for a good old-fashioned movie. Step on through into the kitchen/diner, the handcrafted kitchen is really stylish and enhanced by the light coloured worktops which blend perfectly into the character of the room. This kitchen is well-equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. A dining table sits to the side where you can enjoy views onto the garden from the French doors. When night falls climb the stairs to the master suite, a room that’s simply charming with a super king-sized bed that will give you a great night’s sleep. The room itself is adorned in rich colours, embellished with artwork and finished with stylish shutters. Step into the en-suite bathroom where you can sit and enjoy a bath for two with side by side free standing slipper baths that look onto a breathtaking water colour. There is also a shower room with shower and WC on the ground floor.

Step outside and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening sun -  the south-facing courtyard garden sits to the rear of the cottage, complete with a table and chairs alongside colourful pots and outdoor lighting. There is off-road parking for two cars.

Peony cottage was a spacious and cosy, which was extremely well equipped. Very good use of space. It has been restored to a very high standard. It truly was perfect in every way.

Take your own bath towels if you want to wash your hair, as Bath sheet is too big, and there is only one hand towel provided for two people, which is too small.

Reviewed by aaron 16th August 2019

The cottage is ideally situated within the village It's very quiet and has off street parking . I felt that the cottage was over priced as the money paid wasn't representative to what you got. The bed and pillows are perhaps the worst I've ever experienced in any holiday let we've ever stayed in pillows wafer thin and no support at all.

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?
