Longborough sits within the hillside above the beautiful Evenlode valley just north of Stow-on-the-Wold. This traditional Cotswolds village is peaceful and largely undiscovered with some hidden gems. The village is famous for the opera promenade concerts in the summertime, tearoom and local inn, and to grab a loaf of bread just pop to the community village store. Just a stones' throw away are Moreton-in-Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold, with Lower Slaughter, Broadway, Chipping Campden, Bourton-on-the-Water and Burford all close by. Further afield are the historic towns of Stratford-upon-Avon, known as Shakespeare’s birthplace, and Cheltenham, home to the literature and food festival and horse racing. More local attractions include Chastleton House and Gardens, Hidcote Manor, Daylesford Organic farm shop and Batsford Arboretum.

The peaceful high street of traditional Cotswold stone buildings is the backdrop for this Grade II listed detached cottage. Step back in time through the heavy wooden door into the lounge, a cosy space that’s been finished with tasteful soft furnishings and warmed by a wood burner. For dining continue through the cottage where you can take a seat at the solid wooden table and enjoy a simple supper of local produce. The kitchen is to the rear of the cottage, finished with a more contemporary style and well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge, freezer, and washing machine. There is access to the rear of the cottage which is a great place for muddy boots. The stairs are accessed via a small wooden door in the lounge, they are cottage style and aided with a rope. Off the landing, there is a double bedroom with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, and a double bed dressed with natural linens. There’s also a bathroom where you can relax in the free-standing clawfoot bath, and there is a separate shower and WC. The gardens are to the rear of the cottage and immediately from the side door there is a small, gravelled area with table and chairs, perfect for dining along with a further enclosed area edged with mature hedgerows.

A quintessentially beautiful Cotswolds cottage, the main furnishings of The Old House are in keeping with the character, while the lovely kitchen and gorgeous bathroom have carefully selected high-end fixtures and fittings. The garden is so pretty with a couple of delightful seating areas where we enjoyed everything from morning croissants to eveniRead moreng glasses of wine. The village is stunning with a great pub. The cottage owner was extremely helpful before and during our holiday. Thank you Paul. Hide

A brilliant cottage in a fabulous village location, super quiet on a night but close to Stow and other attractions. Beautifully renovated and feels like you have stepped back in time for an authentic Cotswolds experience.

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?
