Lovely comfortable cottage, well equipped in a quiet location very close to Bath. Great base for exploring the surrounding area.

We had a very comfortable stay in this cottage. It was ideally situated for Bath University. The cottage was furnished to a really high standard and flowers and a goody basket were lovely additional touches. There are low beams - easy to bump heads if you are tall - 58 or over and the stairs were quite steep. Also, take a torch if you plan to go ouRead moretside as there are no street lights. Hide

Wonderful, comfortable cottage in a great village location with very easy access to Bath (less than 10 mins in car), the university (5 mins in car), and plenty of countryside and canalside walks from the door. Easy street parking right outside the cottage - never a problem. Cottage owner was very communicative and ready to help with any questions.

Absolutely lovely property would really recommend this. Great location in a quiet area but only a 5/10 minute drive into the centre of Bath! The welcome gifts were very much appreciated after a 4 hour drive being stuff in traffic! Property was just gorgeous and honestly felt like a home from home.

A masterful modernisation of a listed cottage: elegant, well-equipped and in a quiet location with parking at the door yet easy access to Bath. An excellent welcome pack and toiletries, too.

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?
