In the lounge/diner the wood burner set within a huge inglenook fireplace will keep you snug on chillier evenings. The attractive country style kitchen has been very well equipped and features a built-in electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. Stairs lead you directly up to the romantic double bedroom with en-suite shower room and WC and three steps lead off the bedroom to a stylish bathroom with a Victorian style roll-top bath.

We were very comfortable in Thimble Cottage though the weather was so good we spent little time there. It's definitely geared towards romance! The location is perfect, right next to the old mill and steps from several public footpaths to other picturesque Cotswold villages. Parking wasn't an issue for us as we found a spot and abandoned the car forRead more the week. The garden is south facing, just right for a relaxing glass of wine. Hide

Thimble Mill is idyllic, perfect cosy cottage for two! Brilliant location, parking was no trouble around the church/Manor House. Ideally located to get to all the major villages that are worth a visit! Owner was very responsive & helpful too.

The location is to die for...idyllic village with cottage well situated. The cottage is full of original features, especially inglenook fireplace. A nice touch to welcome with bread, milk, croissants. But...parking is an issue...non available nearby. And plumbing in property makes using bath and shower a potential hazard.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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?
