An impressive Georgian house surrounded by lovely countryside, perfect for friends and families to relax and unwind.

The house is conveniently located on the main A429 Fosseway road halfway between Moreton-in-Marsh and Shipston-on-Stour,  just ten miles north to Stratford-upon-Avon and ten miles south is the picture perfect Cotswold town of Stow-on-the-Wold.

The self-contained front part of a larger farmhouse - The Georgian house was once the village pub, and is now a home from home for visitors wanting to explore the local Cotswolds area, and walk the many public footpaths nearby. Next to the main Roman fosse road, the house is surrounded by beautiful countryside and many historic walks. The front parlour has lovely period features, but now includes all mod cons, a fan oven, ceramic hob with extractor, dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer. The woodburner in the huge fireplace makes a cosy place to dine around the original Georgian table. Across the hall, the snug/ lounge also features a stone fireplace with a woodburner, comfy feather filled sofas, tv and dvd player, two bookcases filled with dvds and videos and lots to read. A door from this lounge leads to a downstairs bedroom with double bed and an antique wood panelled ensuite bathroom with little roll top bath with shower over, washbasin and w.c. Stairs from the front hallway up to the middle floor lead to a double bedroom with lovely antique furniture and an ensuite "Jack and Jill" bathroom (lockable door on both sides). This features a huge roll top bath with shower over accompanied by a w.c. and bidet, and a dressing table and chairs. Along the landing and up the second flight of stairs you will find a large family bathroom with roll top bath (with hand held shower attachment), dressing table, w.c. and bidet. The top landing leads to two further bedrooms, both with period furniture; On the left, a twin bedroom with cast iron bedsteads, and on the right a large bedroom with a king size bed and a single bed, (so this room can be used as a double or a twin room).

The gravelled front drive has room to park four cars, a rose arbour with chairs and a little walled lawned area to sit out with your glass of wine on a sunny evening. The larger farmhouse can be booked as a whole if your group is more than eight people, please enquire.

The property is great: comfortable and cosy, full of character and carefully chosen furniture and fittings. The location enables easy access to everything the Cotswolds has to offer with some good walks from the door. The owners were very quick to respond and we had a lovely Autumn break.

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?
