Neighbouring town, Welford-on-Avon, is half a mile from the house with a selection of independent shops and pubs, and an 18-hole golf course. The more energetic might like to walk or cycle the towpath to Stratford-upon-Avon, 3.5 miles away. There are several riverside cafes along the way to revive tired legs. Besides its famous theatre, Stratford has an excellent range of shops and restaurants, gentle canal and river trips, and some fascinating historic houses. A trip to its Butterfly Farm will be a hit for younger children – and a pretty place to warm up during the colder months – while The MAD Museum is a great interactive place to entertain all ages with a useful central location. Further afield, the whole family will enjoy a trip to Warwick Castle, 8 miles away, with daily attractions including archery, hawk displays and jousting.

Ideal for those who love lovely villages, river nearby, beautiful countryside, great places to visit nearby (Stratford upon Avon). We also love cycling and the owners provided an assortment of bikes to use which was a great plus for all of us. The family running the cottages were wonderful - so helpful and friendly. We very much liked the local pubRead mores too. A great place to stay and I would say one of the best we have stayed in. Hide

Delightful well equipped comfortable cottage very suitable for a large family with children . Nice rural base for trips to the Cotswolds and Stratford upon Avon , close to easy cycling routes. Friendly owners always around if you needed any help or advice

Reviewed by Carol 10th March 2019

The house is spacious, well-equipped and ideal for multi-generational family gatherings. The farmer/owner is delightful and very helpful without being at all intrusive. The agents might be cautious with their email wording as our family gathering was for a sad funeral - not a HOLIDAY....!

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?
