The cottage was comfortable with a modern kitchen well equipped for dining in. As there was just the two of us we spent most of our time exploring the area and dined out most of the time.

We have stayed in numerous cottages in the Cotswolds, this is by far the best. It is furnished to an extremely high standard and has every piece of equipment you could want. We did not want to come home. Many people before have mentioned the road outside but to be honest within an hour we no longer noticed it.

Second stay at this cottage and we were really pleased we went back. Everything was perfect, great location and a lovely home to stay in. The property has a beautiful garden that back's on to fields with views and sheep passing by. A lovely place to relax and couldn't be better positioned for exploring the Cotswolds.

A great cottage with superiour standard. Really really comfortable beds and high standard of bed linnen and towels. The copper bath tub worth they journey in its self. From the add I dont think the second toilett is mentioned, but really nice to have if you are more than two people staying there. Already planning to return.

Fantastic building. Like a tardis inside, really good size. Excellent fixtures and fittings. Would be nice in the summer with good outside space and views. Slight shame about the road noise as the cars go really fast. Would still recommend and come again.

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?
