This cottage is in a beautiful setting overlooking fields in a very quiet little village. It was easy for us to access Oxford and Blenheim Palace on our day trips and we found Witney was perfect for evening meals. Would highly recommend this cosy, quiet bungalow.

The property is in a beautiful location with a pleasant outlook in quiet village - just as we were wanting. It is easy to get to surrounding attractions without travelling great distances. It is modern, comfortable and well decorated with a full range of equipment. The welcome pack was magnificent.

The cottage suited our large family gathering well,for our dads 90 th birthday. Outside spaces could be difficult for young children, some fixtures and fittings need updating both inside and out,but on the whole a beautiful converted barn in a tranquil setting which we enjoyed using very much.

Reviewed by Wenda 1st June 2019

The property Thames View is on the edge of a pretty village. Very comfortable accommodation. Clean and lovely white bedding and fluffy towels. Everything provided for a great holiday, Views across open countryside from the large bedroom. The nearby villages of Aston and Bampton also very attractive.

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?
